Wood Chairs are usable and decorative pieces of furniture that can be activated to make your player character sit down.
These items of furniture can be crafted in your Crafting Menu (to be opened by "Q" as the default key).
The crafting recipe for Wood Chairs has to be unlocked first by:
- taking/crafting Wood Tables, which are unlocked after crafting Wood Chests
- creating Wood Rods from any kind of Wood or Logs in a Processor
- crafting blocks of Wood Floors (from Wood Rods, Wood Slabs and Melted Wax) or finding them in Wood Treasure Chests or other Treasure Chests
To craft 1 Wood Chair, you'll need:
- 4 Wood Rods made of any kind of Wood or Logs in a Processor
- 2 Wood Slabs made of any kind of Wood or Logs in a Processor
Crafting a Wood Chair is one of the unlocking requirements of the crafting recipe for Stone Chairs.
You can rotate Wood Chairs in all directions by holding R (as the default key) and moving the left mouse button. The chosen rotation angle can then be "locked" too by simply typing "R", so that all items of the same stack will be placed facing the same direction.
However graphic glitches or displacements can happen when player characters sit down on or stand up from a chair that is placed sideways or upside down.
To make your player character sit down, activate the chair by right-clicking or typing "f" (as the default key) while looking at it. Tables placed in front of the chair won't block this process, instead your player-character will sit down properly at the table.
Since update R32 you won't need to equip any Power Cells to pick up any kind of crafted objects or blocks that have been placed into the world. Of course you won't be able to take these on claims of other players (or in worlds) where your permission level is set low.
Furniture cannot be protected with permission settings, and cannot be wired nor "locked", so even visitors can sit down on chairs, but cannot pick them up.
Attention: Wood Chairs are flammable! When placing Wood Chairs close to (or especially directly above) torches or any other items with open flames or fiery blocks like Hardened Lava, crafted Wood Chairs can easily start to burn in hot environments that make a heat meter show up, like Oceans, Jungles or the Lava layer, but also in much cooler Swamplands.
Placing several torches or heat sources with open flames next to each other can even raise the chances to set flammable blocks on fire. Liquid Lava or Fire Bombs will immediately set Wood Chairs on fire.
If Wood Chairs start burning, the flames are then able to spread to other nearby flammable blocks, even across gaps of 1-2 blocks on worlds and player claims where the "fire spreading" option is enabled. This way a whole wooden building or forest (especially Wildwood, Parchwood and Shorewood) can burn down in the worst case.
Fire cannot be extinguished by using liquids, but it can be stopped from spreading by claiming the area and making sure that the claim (advanced) option "fire sim/spreading enabled" is disabled (by default). Fire Bombs will have no effect on these claims either.
It is also possible for owners of the game-world (F2P players included) to toggle the spreading of fire on a whole game-world in the basic world options ("edit world" and "disable fire spread"). Another option to stop fire from spreading would be to create forest aisles/swaths wide enough so that the flames cannot leap over.
