I'm on survival and so far I've had no problems but as soon as I try and craft a fence I get nothing.

  • Have you checked if your recipe is right? Can you maybe provide a screenshot?

  • @Johonn the other option would have been to introduce different types of sticks, but i supposed just changing the recipe to use wood planks was less work

    @Memor-X not to mention I'd hate to have 6 different types of sticks... that would be annoying.

Guys I figured it out(for at least version 1.8.3) it`s

plank stick plank
plank stick plank

for fences &

stick plank stick
stick plank stick

for fence gates

Confusing, yet true.

If you play in minecraft 1.8 The crafting recipe change for fence, it become:

wood stick wood
Wood stick wood

So you can craft fences in your survival world

  • It is not wood but planks. You should consider arranging the ingredients in a tabular or (even better) provide a screenshot.

The wood planks are on the side and the sticks are in the middle
