Hi, I'm kind of a new player so not exactly sure why I'm having this problem. But I originally had a button outside my house that would open the door, but it was kind of annoying, so I decided to put pressure plates outside and create a trap inside of mobs, but apparently, the mobs step on the pressure plate, the door opens, but they just stay there. Anyone knows why?
If you're having issues with mobs then you can also consider using a "clopen door" (this is what I call those). Basically you place a door against the side of the blocks instead of on the top (so near the edges) and as a result the door will be placed in an "open" state while it's actually closed. Mobs will walk up to that door and not pass it because the system deems the door closed.
But in fact it's "open'ish" and you can easily walk past at any time:
Here's how I did the placement:
So as you can see I stood sideways and then placed it down, and the result is simply that you'll get a door which is physically open, while the system decrees that it's closed. The perfect way to keep your base safe.
