Was there actually a fence gate at pax prime?

I don't believe so, no. If it was, nobody made one. I think Jeb said that it works, but it looks kind of ugly and doesn't match up correctly or something similar. I don't know if he meant it will be in PAX demo but the texture is being fixed up for 1.8, or it's not in PAX demo because he's unsatisfied with how it looks. I'm just going off memory, sorry. --HexZyle 02:45, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
Okay, that explains why it's the only thing confirmed so far(except silverfish) that doesn't have a picture from being in 1.8 so far. MyCraftDev
They were in the demo, the GUI icon simply wasn't ready at the time. They'll be included in 1.8:!/jeb_/status/109664269309714432 - Shadowx4ffc 15:55, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

More efficient?[edit]

The last line states that gates are more efficient to make than fences(resource wise?), but this isn't true. A gate takes 4 wood to make, whereas a fence takes 1.5 wood blocks. Per block, gates are 2.66 times as expensive in terms of wood spent.

Correct, easier to understand in terms of sticks. Fences = 6 Sticks Gates = 8 Sticks (4 Sticks + 2 Planks[4 Sticks]) The page has already been corrected - Rafiki2085


This page seems to be large enough to be able to split into smaller sections, instead of one large introduction and almost nothing else (apart from crafting, bugs and references). I would do this myself, but I need a bit of help deciding what these new sub-headings should be. Could people please discuss here their suggestions. Azdares 06:26, 17 September 2011 (UTC)


I have pushed in a sitting wolf but the page says they are too wide. –The preceding unsigned comment was added by (Talk|Contribs) 14:41, 20 September 2011. Please sign your posts with ~~~~

We need clarification on the page at the moment: we now know that wolves can fit through gates, but when asked to follow, will a wolf FOLLOW it's owner through a fence gate, or will it wait outside the fence gate even if it is open? I will remove both wolf bugs until someone clarifies what the bug actually is, and if it even exists. Azdares 23:08, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Fence Gate Collision Issue[edit]

Currently (as of 1.0) passive mobs (pigs and sheep) will pass through the gate unless a block is placed above it. For example:

Create a gate with two blocks of fence to either side, for a total of 5 blocks wide. Seal off the remaining perimeter with fence blocks to make an enclosure. Make the fences two blocks high and cover with a material. (wood, dirt etc.) Leave the block above the gate as air. Lure passive mob (sheep or pig) into the enclosure, then close the gate and place wheat in your hand again, watch the animals pass through the gate.

Forgive me for not knowing the protocol for adding this to the main page.... ArtifexDominus 15:17, 12 January 2012 (UTC)


Is there any reason why spiders can't pass through an open gate (with an empty block beside it, so that with the gate open it's a 2-block wide gap; there's a barrier above so they can't climb over, I need them to go through). I know mobs in general can pass through open gates, but the spiders (hostile) just sit on the other side of the gate as though it's an impassable barrier. If it turns out they can't get through gates, does anyone have any alternative ideas to make a gap that can be half-closed behind them when they step on a pressure plate? I switched from a door because they seemed to have great difficulty fitting through the slightly-less-than-2-block gap when it was open. 21:58, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

It's a bit more complicated, but a vertical piston 'door' in a 2- or 3-block wide corridor should work. -- Orthotopetalk 01:30, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

Two Fence Gates[edit]

There's a section that says "There are no double fence gates like double doors, but if you place two fence gates beside each other, they will act like one."... but when I put two gates next to each other, they do not act like one... you have to open them individually (the same way that is mentioned for vertical stacking). 01:53, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

I think what it's trying to say is “they will act like a double door”. —F‌enhl 22:47, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Does fence gates cause loads of lag?[edit]
