Building Type

The Wooden Path, also known as walkway, was a building that consisted of wooden planks in a square shape. It was added in v0.08 though was merged with the custom floor in update v0.38. In the v0.38 update it was removed from the survival guide. It technically has its own system as it can be added to the game through console commands using PlaceBuiltObjects WalkwayStraightBuilt 1. It is difficult to place using this command as it doesn't give you control of where it is going to go.


You can still place wooden paths using the custom floor. Select the custom floor in the survival guide and aim at the ground, then press E to make a wooden path. It can be difficult to make these into pathways as you can get caught on them quite easily.

Wooden paths can also be found in some caves, they are exactly the same as the ones that the player can build. These ones can also be destroyed.
