Overview[]

The Metal Sign lets players display a short message to other players. If more space for a message is needed, the Metal Billboard can be used. Edit the text as many times as needed with the use key (E, Y, Triangle). To add a second line of text, use <br>.

Construction[]

The Metal Sign does not require a foundation for placement, and as such does not interfere with the spawning of natural resources. It does not snap to other structures.


Notes[]

  • Despite being a metal object, the Metal Sign takes damage as if it were wood
  • The Metal Sign is treated as a wooden structure and can not be damaged by hands, stone weapons, or non-explosive ranged attacks.
  • The following aggressive creatures can not damage the Metal Sign:


Painting and Color Regions[]

In addition to its preset paint regions, you can doodle on the Metal Sign by "attacking" it with a   Paintbrush, which will open the "Apply Paint" Menu. Then, click and drag your cursor over the 3D model (like a paintbrush) to draw anything you want. See Painting for more information on doodling.

For more information on Paint Regions and how to use them, please view the Blue Coloring.png Dye,   Paintbrush, or   Spray Painter pages.
