  • It was free to place until alpha 23, where it was changed to $3 a square.
  • Because Fence is a material, it is impossible to change dirt texture under the fence.
  • As of Alpha 34, fences no longer slow down prisoners digging an escape tunnel.
  • As of Alpha 36 there is a random event that can occur where a random section of around 5-12 fences will break.
  • Just like with walls contraband can still be thrown over if it's within 10 tiles of the border.
