PC Actuated platforms above hammered platforms = fall/spaz though floor


Steam or GOG
Single Player/Multiplayer
Operating System
Windows 10
Terraria Version
Controls Used
If an actuated platform is above a non-actuated hammered 'platform shaped block' and the player tries to stand on the hammered platform the player clips through the floor. This also prevents the player from walking onto the platform normally as with other 'stairs'

-The lower platform must be a hammered 'platform shaped block' and not an actual platform
-The upper platform may be either

My guess would be that it's treating it as a whole block and spazzing out because the player is inside it.

Also please note that the spazzing is a lot more hectic than in the gif, it's just low FPS so I could upload it.

Where is the GIF? I can't seem to be able to find it. Though I think that what you encountered is a hoik (yes they are that easy to make).


@Kirby737 Sorry, I have no clue why it didn't want to upload. It took me the better part of 30 mins before things stopped giving me errors.
Heh it's fine, the forum doesn't seem to like animated files, so it's probably that.

The GIF shows something that looks like an Hoik, but I'm not an expert.


Yeah, it may be. Although, I have have never made one either (just seen them on youtube) I think they work by pushing the player out of a block they are in using sloped pieces. In this you just fall through. So it may be diffeent, but I am probably wrong.

Half platforms can cause a hoik effect too. My friend used to use such an effect to make glitchy elevators before either of us knew what hoik was.
