Only the Mechanic can craft gates.
The Gates are like large doors, but harder for raiders to break. Iron Gates take even longer than Wooden Gates for raiders to break, and there are a couple researches at the university to make them take even longer.
However, players and citizens can still use them as normal doors by right-clicking. They will also be triggered by redstone signals.
Using the Gates
To place a Gate:
- Have several stacked in your inventory
- Right-click the stack where you want it to be placed
- The entire stack will be placed, filling as much space as it can
Note: The maximum size of a Gate is 5x4 blocks.
