SWEM fences are similar to (vanilla) Minecraft fences in all but one way. Just like Minecraft fences, they are technically 1.5b tall, meaning entities cannot step or jump over them. They are recognized as a barrier, so cannot be pathed through and will contain entities within it. Unlike Minecraft fences, SWEM fences can be altered between a full-fence and a half-fence (cut down) state. This cutting down of fences can be achieved using a Fence Tool. This can be used in many ways:
- Short dressage or competition arena borders
- 1.5 Height pasture fences (1 high fences look really short compared to SWEM horses)
- A variety of decorative ideas including hooks and light posts
- [English] Framing stall windows, dividers and overhang support
Western fences have a full-height straight panel across the top of it, with two thinner support panels lower on the fence. When a corner is created, western fences have an interesting diagonal post design. Right-click a western fence with a fence tool in hand to cut down.
Pasture fences are visually very similar to Minecraft fences, but with slightly sturdier (thicker) panels and a half-fence version. Right-click a pasture fence with a fence tool in hand to cut down.
English fences are unlike any other SWEM or Minecraft fence. They have a white-framed panel design with black painted wood bars. They come in edge or connector pieces (no corner) and often require use of the fence tool. English fences are sensitive to direction, so you may need to move around to place the corners in the right direction or use the fence tool:
- Shift + Right-click: Rotate a corner section to a different direction
- Right-click: Toggle between corner and connector designs
English fences cannot connect around a corner like normal fences, so a post made from blocks would be recommended for pastures using English fences.
English fences are not 1.5b like other fences, and can be jumped unless designed to be double height.
