I can understand the logic behind tools/armor not stacking in my inventory, due to each having their own wear & tear. However, I cannot understand why doors cannot stack. Does anyone have any reasonable logic or justification why they cannot?

Hey, for the record, this seems more of a 'why did they design it that way' question, which is off topic, and why I voted to close. Cant speak for the other voters. – Ender Apr 15 '13 at 17:55

A simpler answer would be that this is the way it's programmed. Many items have odd stacking rules like snowballs, mine carts, and eggs. I suppose this is meant to reflect how difficult it would be for a person to carry those items.

Fair enough. It just seems rather odd since gates and trap doors can both stack, while doors cannot. – Gigazelle Apr 15 '13 at 19:03

any item that takes more than one block cannot be stacked (bed, door, etc)

this seems to be a technical barrier because mod items that take up multiblock cannot be stacked either (like writing desk, scarecrow, cannon, etc)

Speaking from experience modding, there is no technical barrier. The game could as easily stack them as not, just by changing a single number in the code. The game and mod designers simply choose not to. – SevenSidedDie Apr 15 '13 at 18:10
