The Wood Floor is a very plain smooth wooden cubic building block. Other than the Wood Walls, the Wood Floor does not even have fine lines on its smooth surface.
This block can also be crafted in your Crafting Menu (default key "q") after the according crafting recipe has been unlocked by
- crafting (or finding) blocks of Wood Wall (e.g. in Stone Treasure Chests that spawn on blocks of the Fossil layer)
- and processing Wood Slabs from any kind of Wood (except for corrupted wood) or Logs by putting them into a Processor
To craft 8 (blocks of) Wood Floor, you'll need (as of R44 in June 2017):
- 3 Wood Slabs made of any kind of Wood (except for corrupted wood) or Logs in a Processor
- 1 Wood Rod made of any kind of Wood (except for corrupted wood) or Logs in a Processor
- 1x Melted Wax made of Beeswax in a Forge or looted from Wood Treasure Chests or Stone Treasure Chests
Crafting (or obtaining) Wood Floors is one of the unlocking requirements of the crafting recipe for Tile Wood Floors.
Fire warning Edit
Attention: blocks of Wood Floors are flammable! When placing Wood Floor blocks close to (or especially directly above) torches or any other items with open flames or fiery blocks like Hardened Lava, crafted Wood Floors 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 Floor blocks on fire.
If Wood Floor blocks start burning, the flames are then able to spread to other nearby inflammable 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 enabled" is disabled. Currently fire will not spread and Fire Bombs will have no effect on player claims by default, but this option can be toggled by the claim owners.
It is also possible for owners of the gameworld (F2P players too) to toggle the spreading of fire on a whole gameworld 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.
