Locks would be useless
What are we locking ourselves from?
If we lock the door how do we open it?
If we can open it then so can other people on multiplayer
If others cannot then a person can just lock himself inside of anyplace or even trap other person in his own house
It looks more like a griefing helper than a saver
Notch said he will add it when he has time and feels its right to do it.
Alright, good, as long as it's been said that gates will be done. I feel a strong need for them not just for decoration but to keep effing animals out of my dock (they bust up my boats, dangit!) and from trampling my seeded fields, but still allow for me to get in and out without having to bust down a fence. I currently have a door there, and haven't finished the fence to see if it will work, but it looks wonky, regardless.
