Well, we finally brought all of the animals back to the spawn camp.
We worked together and got the animal farm together. One trick I picked up was to place a carpet on top of the fences. Players can jump 1.25 blocks but fences are 1.5 blocks high. For some reason adding the carpet on top of the fence let’s us jump on as it it’s only one block tall. But the animals still think that the fence is a full height.
The carpet doesn’t look as good as a real fence gate. But sometimes, function is more important than form.
