    Here's the second of three CraftBook sign-related posts! This one seems the most interesting to me, as I've used it a lot. The feature I wish to discuss in this thread is gates.

    What does a gate do?
    Gates are used as a fancy door. Some may love pistons to create gates, but others may not have the redstone knowledge to build one. Right-clicking or redstone-toggling a gate switch toggles a gate on and off.

    How are gates created?
    Gates are made by placing a sign (with [Gate] on the second line) next to some stacked fences, iron bars, or glass panes.

    Example usage of the gates feature?
    Like bridges, gates are purely cosmetic. On the other hand, gates don't have much use except as a fancy door. Here are some examples, though, that may be used in some way:
    • Flood gates to block/release water or lava
    • Large windows
    • Castle gates or doors
    • Mob traps

    Pros:
    - Utility for gate design

    Cons:
    - All blocks in the gate must be the same
    - Limited dimensions

    How staff can make this feature more versatile?
    By default, gates are pretty decently sized. They can be 12 blocks tall, with seemingly infinite width (I haven't seen any configurations that toggle the width limit). There's really no change necessary here.

    Now that I think about it this would be great for making a prison. With iron bars being toggleable with this feature, you can create jail cells that can be toggled on and off.
