DBock’s Fences and Gates

7 days to die dbock's fences and gates, 7 days to die building materials, 7 days to die doors

My first mod bringing new chain link fences to the game.

I also made a left and right working chain link fence gate that is already in the game.

If you have any request to have a gate made or have an idea for me to add, please reach out to me! I would love to hear from you. You can find me on GuppyCur’s Discord server. If you are not on that server, feel free to PM me at Discord: DBock#6048

I hope you enjoy it! I would love feedback! Even negative feedback helps!

Thank you Xyth and GuppyCur for the help along the way! If I missed you, I didn’t forget, I’m just bad, but thank you too ;-)!

Shoutout to Mr.Devolver for testing the mod and responding with issues and fixes!

Note: This mod needs to be installed on both client and server for multiplayer.

Planned for Future

  • More fence variations
  • More Gates
  • Access by recipe, to fence models already in-game
  • More models of gates that use other materials that are commonly used in hoard bases


Version 1.2

I would say if you downloaded V1.1, PLEASE UPDATE. You will not regret it – this time. I know I messed up placements in V1.1 but I fixed them. Im sorry about that :).

  • Completely redid animations from the ground up. That should fix any issues with doors being out of sync on multiplayer servers. (Thank you Xyth)
  • Fixed the original gate positioning I messed up in V1.1 – That was my user error in placement, sorry about that.
  • Fixed repair items for the new BarGate, now all repairs should call for the correct items.
  • Fixed errors within the XML files – Thank You Mr.Devolver
  • With this update, I have two DLs. One has compatibility with FGStainlessMod. Obviously the other does not. Please download the correct version for yourself to avoid in-game errors!

Version 1.1

I would say if you downloaded my first upload, PLEASE UPDATE. You will not regret it.

  • Updated all animations to the gates now that I have a better grasp on what I’m doing.
  • Added a new “Bars” Gate for the people who use bars on their bases and don’t want to use a solid door.
  • Fixed the positioning of the original Chainlink Gates when trying to place them.
  • Updated all icons to hopefully resemble better what it’s for.
  • Added a single recipe for the wood “Bars” gate.
  • With this update, I have two DLs. One has compatibility with FGStainlessMod. Obviously the other does not. Please Download the correct version for yourself to avoid ingame errors!

  1. I added the Jericho Ranch to my survival world, and have been fixing it up to look a bit nicer. Any thoughts on doing some gates to go with wooden fences (white picket fence/gate, a brown wood gate to go with the vanilla fence texture)? Also, thought about fixing up some of the buildings in the town. So, I was thinking it would be nice to replace the staged store windows that look like glass doors with actual glass doors. I would love to play in a 7 Days to Die type game where the objective was rebuilding civilization after the apocalypse. There’s just so many zombies I can kill before it gets a bit redundant, but I’ve found that I really like building in this game. Thank goodness for modders for keeping this game interesting.

      1. Also I don’t if you take separate mod suggestions but a Subaru Forester in 7 Days to die would be pretty cool.

  2. Hey mate, the 2×2 fence with barb wire on the top has a hitbox error, when you try one side all the (panels?) and hittable but if you walk around to the other side only a portion of it is interactable with i.e.hitable.

  3. BE CAREFUL when using this mod. Save your savegame. I was really happy about fences. But as it stands the mod seems to have a conflict with “Sams Storage Stuff”. All cupboards have been replaced with fences. Result: All content there is gone. Even after removing the mod, the old storage box doesn’t come back. All my food are gone and easily 80% of my collected raw materials. I don’t know if this conflict still exists with other mods with containers. I’m extremely pissed right now…

    1. Backing up the savegame doesn’t help. I backed up the complete save directory and played it back, which I had as the last save before the mod (I use a backup tool and the saver every 5 minutes). The containers are simply gone.

  4. Thanks for sharing. So glad to finally have a door/gate that works with the vanilla chain link fences!
    Idk how much work it’d be, but a ‘Single Block’ version of the “Bars” gate, could be pretty useful (ie: same as the current Bars gate, just cut in half vertically), to use as kind of a ‘turnstile’.
    Or even a gate version of the ’round metal railings’ found with the Catwalk pieces.
    Just some ideas. Thanks again
