It opens. And closes sometimes, too.


Wood Gates are craftable Structures. They require an Alchemy Engine to be crafted from 2 Boards and 1 Rope. Wood Gates can be opened and closed by the player, either by clicking on them or by pressing Space while standing next to them. Together with Wood Fences, they can be used to pen Mobs. Wood Gates are flammable and can be destroyed with a Hammer, which will return all of their crafting ingredients. Wood Gates placed next to each other will always form a double gate and always open and close together.

  • Placing Wood Gates to become a double gate can be difficult if they are placed in a gap between two fence ends. It is recommended to remove the fence on one side and place the gates beforehand.
  • Visually, Wood Gates do not work well with Walls of any kind. In certain angles they can look as if they were floating above them.
