How to avoid killing tamed animals?

PostThu Jul 06, 2017 6:53 pm

I built lots of animal pens, and I'm often having the issue of either not being able to get inside, or leave them without hitting the animal. How to get in/out when the animal is always blocking the gate? I trie with empty hands, as well and a long hold, no luck.

The only ways I can think of that might help:

1. Expand the animal pen a little bit more. This is to allow animals to roam enough away from gates. (I think about 8 to 10 fences on both side of stable is the limit. This is to keep animals from despawning. )
2. Build something. I have some examples that will basically make you avoid the gates completely, using ladders, platforms or pits.

Hope this helps! :)

Note: In the first and second picture I used a trick to make the mineshaft x pillar float. Similar to this technique Click Here

I was going to say enter from below using bridges, but Mastery beat me to it.

You could also put a block right outside the gate at each end (or lower the whole stable area a block into the ground) so that you come over top of the gate when you walk up.

That's what I ended up doing, lowering it and used bridges. I typed a big reply yesterday, but Tapatalk wouldn't post it.

It's nothing pretty, but hassle free
