I'd like to build one of my NPCs' houses with a retractable floor so that I can repeatedly drop them
into... things. Is this possible?

Have you tried using the Housing Query? – Raven Dreamer Dec 9 '11 at 2:37
@RavenDreamer I started a new map and don't have any blocks to test with yet. – Fambida Dec 9 '11 at 2:53

It turns out that houses can be built with retractable floors. My NPCs need to prepare for some adventure. Any furniture will need to be on a platform above the floor or it will have to be replaced every time the floor is activated.

This makes me want to re-install. – tQuarella Dec 9 '11 at 13:23
Poor NPCs. I prefer building traps around the house. Without lava moats around my house I just don't feel safe any more at night in the hard mode.. – Dec 9 '11 at 16:05
