Doors are blocks that are obtainable through crafting or finding them in NPC Villages or Strongholds. They come in two forms : Wooden and Iron. Wooden doors are made from wood planks, while the iron doors are made from iron ingots. They can be placed in two states, which are being placed rotated clockwise and rotated counter-clockwise. Mobs: In hard difficulty or hardcore, zombies can actually break down wooden doors, be sure to look out for that. The non-villager mobs can't open the door without redstone-based help. If you destroy the block underneath the door, it will break the door. If you open and close the door, it would create a sound wave, which can be heard about 16 blocks away, those mob sounds, except the Ghast. These doors can be opened using, a lever(switch), a button, manually(wooden) or redstone-based. Only a wooden doors can be manually opened, using the "Use" commands suck as the right-click. As for iron doors, they open by using switching mechanism such as Levers(switch), Pressure Plates, Restone-Based Stuff or a Button. Doors can be used to trap mobs too. To craft a door, put 6 wooden planks or 6 iron ingots at the left side.
