Wooden Beams can be stacked from the ground, and exist in the background, providing support for suspended Torches that will not inhibit character movement. In this way, Wooden Beams provide a function similar to Trees (which also exist in the background and allow the player to suspend high Torches), but which the player can construct where they like. Where background Walls exist, Wooden Beams can also be placed in "midair", without support from below.
Despite their appearance as background Walls, Wooden Beams instead share a layer with other furniture items (like Tables, Torches, Statues, Switches, Timers, etc.), thus the two cannot share the same tile space. They can also prevent a door from opening.
- Prior to 1.2, Wooden Beams presented the only method of placing suspended Torches without foreground blocks for them to attach to. As Torches can now be placed directly on background Walls, Wooden Beams are far less functional within Houses. They can still be helpful in other places where background Walls are not present.
