So im re-writing almost all my old blogs because they are nasty, especially the ones that are over two years old.

This function is still fun even in 1.10 as it still exists, hence why im re-writing it, you dont think im gonna give you a tutorial for a version of minecraft thats two years old do you

Ok well this was some fancy thing i found in the game two years ago, and im gonna show you how to replicate it in minecraft version 1.10 and onwards until either fences or carpets are removed from the game.

ok im just gonna bung this in a flat lands, i cant be bothered building a new house so here is my fancy house from two years ago

scary monsters keep coming in my door because im too lazy to build one and would much rather use those six wood to do much more important things with, like use and fuel to make charcoal. but i have two sticks hanging around which really annoys me because i already have all my tools, so im gonna have one bit of charcoal less and use these to create some fence blocks

I then realized my shaders were on and they were really buggy so i turned them off, even though my shaders were off all the slimes in my superflat world decided to all turn white, if you do not have buggy shaders skip this step
my doorway is 3 blocks tall and one block wide, perfect size for a doorway, as a door and a person both fit inside that size, but also zombies and skeletons do. the soul sand trap doesn't seem to work anymore, and besides im too early game for it,

I am however able to easily obtain some carpet and a fence. Wood and sheep are everywhere

i dig down and replace the block in my doorway from dirt and place down my fence

i then step back and place my carpet ontop of my fence like so

i then realize i'm stuck inside my house and have to fly out because i'm a cheat in creative mode, you can see the basic setup in my amazing dirt box 3000 (patented by me and copyrighted plz no steal).

this works because the carpet block and the fence block both have strange collision and bounding boxes making them take up the block above and blocks access both ways through the door, if you look here i am able to break the block on the top of the door and step up onto the carpet,
as before cave spiders can still get in here because they are a half block tall, this also applies to small slimes, silverfish,endermites AND BABY ZOMBIES! WARNING THIS IS NOT BABY ZOMBIE PROOF, they are all able to move through this gap and eat your face. chickens and baby animals are also able to move through

this system can be as long as you like, just keep placing fences and carpets with a block above and it works fine

you dont even need walls and it works

i had a comment in the comment section saying "why dont you jsut use barrier blocks"

well to start with this system is for players who dont play with cheats on

and second i cant remember the id for the barrier block

and third if i used barrier blocks i wouldnt be writing this awesome blog and would be building an invisible castle

What's the point of updating this for 1.10?

there is a point for everything
mainly from wanting to re-write the entire blog, and to see if the trick still worked in 1.10

Seems really cool...Although its pointless, this is just like a way to block out your 1x2 windows.
