Description   (From Recipaedia 2.0)

A thin wire made of copper, it conducts electricity very well. Used for making electric circuits. Wire can be placed on any surface and connections with all nearby wires will be created automatically. A wire will connect between edges of diagonally adjacent blocls. allowing you to make hidden connections.

The colored wire was introduced in V2.0. They behave like the Electric Wire except in how they connect to other wires. A colored wire will not connect to wires of other colors, but will connect to the original 'clear' wire.


Colored wires cannot be directly crafted - they are paintable with a bucket much like most of the paintable blocks. See Painting for more details.

They are available for all 16 colors, however, only a few of them are in the creative inventory (white, gray, black, blue, green, yellow and red). With 16 colors plus 'clear' wires, much more intricate electrics may now be made. Just note that clear wires connect to all colors.
