Like all wooden blocks, fence gates are most quickly harvested with an axe.
|Block||Hardness||Tool||Breaking time (seconds)|
Fence gates must be placed on a block, but will remain in place if the block is then removed. When placed, fence gates will automatically face towards the player, regardless of any other fences around it.
Fence gates have a collision box that is one and a half blocks tall closed. When open, it has no collision box.
Fence gates can be opened through redstone input, or by pressing use, and always open away from the player. Losing redstone power will close the fence gate. A fence gate can be opened both inwards and outwards.
Hostile mobs recognize the fence gate as a block and will not attack players through it unless they have already seen them.
Fence gates use six different ID names to determine the type of wood the gate is made from. Fence gates also use block data to determine additional data.
|Type||ID Name||Numerical ID|
|Two bits storing a value from 0 to 3 specifying the direction the gate is facing:
|0x4||0 if the gate is closed, 1 if open.|
||For an open gate, the direction the gates swing open.
For a closed gate, the direction the player was facing when the gate was placed, or the last direction the gates have swung.
||If true, the gate is lowered by two pixels, to accommodate attaching more cleanly with normal and mossy Cobblestone Walls.|
||If true, the gate is opened.|
||If true, the gate is receiving redstone power.|
