Friendly bars are primarily for decoration and provide a fun and less prison-y look to bars compared to vanilla versions. They can be used in many ways to decorate your stable or other types of builds. We suggest:

  • As safe alternatives to glass for allowing light and ventilation into your stalls
  • Combined with walls or blocks to make unique fence variations for your property, pastures or arenas

Like vanilla bars, the shape of friendly bars depends on the blocks surrounding them. If no blocks are adjacent to them, they will have a slender appearance as there is nothing for them to connect to. Friendly bars will connect to full blocks and wall blocks, but do not connect to fences or partial blocks (stairs, slabs) without the use of a debug stick in creative.


Shown: Combined friendly bars versus single friendly bars.
