I’m sure I used to see a fence tool in the new building editor, but I tried the 1.0 release and it had been removed completely. If you create a template of just fences, you can not place that or the hearthlings won’t build it. This brings me back to my original question; Is there really no fence tool in the final release? This is such a basic thing to have and to not see it in the game is really disappointing. If you want to build a bigger fence for a pen, or something similar, you have to place each individual post. There have been desktop Tuesdays that mentioned the fence tool and various devstreams and now it’s just not in. This is the same thing as the mining tool to get stairs. It was shown in devstreams, but in the final product we have to mine out the individual blocks.
Guess it’s to be expected. But hey, modders can add that in.
