Creating a fence or gate in Minecraft can be done in just a few steps. The game, which has several blocks with curious properties, offers the fence as one of the simplest and most powerful. It may not seem all that special at first glance, but when used properly, it’s one of the few blocks with an unusual height limit, made specifically to prevent enemies or animals from passing through.
She also manages to create special areas within the game to keep her kittens safe and not disappear.
Fences can be crafted by connecting four blocks of wood to two sticks on a crafting bench. When a fence block is set up alone, it takes on the appearance of a post and can even be stacked for decoration. Only when the player places a second block next to it does the structure of a fence begin to form.
It is important to say that different types of wood produce different types of fences, each with their own unique look. However, all manage to connect with each other. The only exception to the rule is the nether brick fence, which consists of four nether brick blocks and two nether bricks.
The height of the fences, while visually appearing as one block, is actually a block and a half. Therefore, players and creatures cannot cross it. When stacked, they always take up the same number of blocks, with another half block on top. Two fences are two and a half blocks high and three are three and a half blocks high. Finally, it should be mentioned that not all animals find a real obstacle in the fences. Foxes, for example, are particularly adept at jumping over them.

How to make a gate in Minecraft?
To facilitate access to the fenced area, it is possible to create a gate, which is basically a fence tie that acts as a door. It can be opened or closed with the interaction button. To create it you need to use four sticks and two blocks of wood. Like fences, gates change appearance depending on the wood used. For some reason there is no connection limit with the Nether Brick Fence as wooden gates usually connect to it.

How to rescue animals inside fences
Fences and walls can create spaces to save their contents, making them indispensable for farms. Usually animals in Minecraft disappear when the player is away. However, if they are inside a fence, this will not happen. In order for the fence to count as a closed place, all blocks must be connected even if there is a gate, and its internal area must not exceed 20×20 blocks. In addition, the game considers them to be in open spaces, so they can disappear.
