The Wooden Billboard lets players display a short message to other players. It is notably bigger than a Wooden Sign Wooden Sign. Edit the text as many times as needed with the use button (E, Y, Triangle). To add a second line of text, use <br/>.


The Wooden Billboard 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.

It is possible to carefully place two or more billboards side by side to use as larger display area. If noclipping is set on the server config, and they are carefully placed against a wall, the legs will be hidden inside the wall, just leaving the face of the billboard exposed.


  • The Wooden Billboard 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 Wooden Billboard:

Painting and Color Regions[]

In addition to its preset paint regions, you can doodle on the Wooden Billboard by "attacking" it with a Paintbrush 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 Dye, Paintbrush Paintbrush, or Spray Painter Spray Painter pages.
