The Wooden Fence Foundation can be used for building walls around an area, such as for a pen to keep your dinos in. One would first place a fence foundation down, and then place a section of wall on top.

Fence Foundations can be placed directly on the ground and snap to foundations and other fence foundations. They can be snap placed at 45 degree angles.

Only walls, fences, and wall-like structures can be built on the fence foundation (i.e. you cannot put a ceiling on your fence walls).


  • If a foundation is destroyed, any building pieces that rely on it for support will be destroyed as well. If it was destroyed via the demolish option, no resources will be refunded for these extra building pieces.
  • The Wooden Fence Foundation is treated as a wooden structure and can not be damaged by hands, stone weapons, or non-explosive ranged attacks.
  • The following aggressive creatures can not damage the Wooden Fence Foundation:
