[Request] Fence Gate

by Obiewan1111 » Mon Jan 21, 2013 18:52

Please, can you add a Fence Gate to the default game, rather than using a mod which looks nothing like the dealt fence or using nothing. I'm sure a lot of other people would want this, and so do I!

Thanks.

the fence gate mod was designed for the minecaft tp i think, which is a shame however i usually play with that tp anyway.
i may try and create a texture for that mod, it depends if anyone else wanted it too.

Total support! :)
But I'm not sure if that is seen as needed. In MC I used fence gates to have access to the areas with mobs (like mines). I've blocked the way with fences and that make a gate. So I can pass if I want to and they don't.
Just out of curiosity, Obiewan1111, what do you use fence gates for?

I made a patch that fences connect to wall walkable nodes (like MC), but VanessaE and celeron55 dont like it.
So without this patch fencegates are rather useless if the fences dont connect to them.

I want Fence Gates because I want to make an enclosure and gates into different houses in my builds. They would also be useful in my youtube videos I am making throughout the next few months, but haven't come round to starting it yet.

A standard gate for the fence would be nice, especially in connection with the animals from mobf. From a technical point of view, fences might not be ideal to keep them in one place (more difficult collusion detection due to the nodeboxes; possible escape; huge animals like cows sometimes seem to get stuck), but from the asthetic viewpoint, there's nothing like fences for animals :-) Well, ok, barbed wire might be a solution where homedecor is installed. Might try that.

*BUMP*

... for the highly-needed new features (gates included) on the Fences in the default game !

See here : viewtopic.php?id=5016

The default game is frozen.
Besides, there are at least 3 more mods with fences and gates. Those are no worse than the one you've linked us.

Must be something new.

minetest_game is frozen, but minetest_next (the new default game) isn't. It even got a hatch some time ago.

Apart from that, my cottages mod also adds a fence gate. It solves the "fence does not connect to fence gate" problem by lying on the ground in its open state. I considered moving the gate to the side at first, but that didn't look as well.

Keeping mobs inside depends less on fences but far more on mobs mod. You can keep animals from sapiers animals mod (mobf) in a fenced-off region - and most of the time, they'll still be there when you get to that area again. Most other mob mods (especially those found on servers) are more or less based on simple mobs. Those can't be successfully kept inside the fence area anyway unless you go crazy and build a cage that's closed on all sides (including top). Those mobs jump on each other's back and thus escape. Or just despawn.

My fence mod jp suggested is indeed not recommended to use.

So I made a new mod for fence gates, that preserve the visual style of the MT fences but also have not to be droped on the floor when open. Get it here: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=9932

EDIT: Sokomine, minetest_game is NOT frozen...

What can I say... Someone definitely should stop toying with minetest_game status...

This is something that could easily be added to minetest_game, and in my opinion should be. Question is if it's an addition that will be accepted.

Just my opinion, but fences that have gates that join to them and open like actual gates ( or doors )
should be part of the default game, and I cant imagine why they're not already included.
I've been wanting proper fence gates for ages.

This. I agree that fence gates and similar necessities should be added to minetest_game soon, if MTG aims to be playable and complete to any extent without mods.
