How to make fields similar to those used in Day 16: Purpose? The one to which a emitter is attached to directly. I tried placing pin fields around the emitter with one directional field extended . But the creeper fell out of the field. (I had used 7 pin fields.)

Thank You

If I recall, (been a while since I tinkered,) it should work just like you say.  Pin fields containing creeper around the emitter, maximum strength.  Then a 'pipe' of fields consisting of a directional field to make creeper flow through (optional) and a field on each side, to contain creeper inside the 'pipe'. (not optional)  Can you show us your field configuration, either in screenshot, or otherwise?

Am I misunderstanding your needs?

Code: [Select]

E: Emitter
Arrows: fields
EDIT: Pin fields directing creeper in the 'pipe' are staggered in this example because the small size of a code-box font and how closely they were packed confused things.  No need for that in practice.
