So far all I've seen is stairs which NPCs climb when they reach them, or stairs where they walk right past the bottom of them. Is there any way to build stairs where they can either climb them or walk past them? I'd like to have my NPCs be able to go hang out together during the day, but still be able to get back to their houses at night.


Since version 1.2.3, platforms in the sloped position will become stairs:

You can get platforms into the sloped position by hitting them with a hammer

These stairs will allow the NPC's to walk up them or past them.

  • I think you might be referring to the effect hammer has on front items, where it changes the graphic, but im not sure. Could you elaborate?

  • @Timelord64 yes. What do you mean by "front items"

  • Anything that does not go in the back, like a wall does

  • Doesn't matter anyway. This answer was flagged as low quality but I see you've made some improvements so I expect it won't get flagged again

    @Timelord64 ah okay, hammering items doesn't just change the graphic, differently positioned stuff has different properties too
