The Metal Dinosaur Gateway is designed to house the Metal Dinosaur Gate.png Metal Dinosaur Gate. Together, they provide protection against the outside world and keep dinosaurs contained inside of an area.

Construction[edit | edit source]

A Metal Dinosaur Gateway can be placed directly on the ground, without the need of first placing a Fence/Standard foundation. While it does not snap-fit to foundations or pre-existing walls, it will snap to fence foundations.

A Metal Dinosaur Gate.png Gate can be placed in the hole and locked to provide a way to restrict access to the area while still allowing you and your dinosaurs a way through.

Incompatible Creatures[edit | edit source]

These creatures are too large to fit through a Metal Dinosaur Gateway.

A Woolly Rhino fits through this gateway (with or without gate) but it doesn't fit through both the Dinosaur Gateway.png Dinosaur Gateway and Stone Dinosaur Gateway.png Stone Dinosaur Gateway if they are equipped with gates.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Gateway is 4 Wall Panels high and 2 Wall Panels wide. It fits exactly into a 2x4 hole.
  • Note that the Giganotosaurus cannot destroy nor walk over this gate, so it is somewhat cheap and proficient in giga-proofing your base if done correctly.
