Pillars are used to hold Wooden Floors, allowing the raft to be expanded upwards. Wooden Pillars can hold up to four tiles. Therefore, Pillars spaced two tiles apart is the optimal way to support a second floor. There is no limit to how many Pillars can be stacked on top of each other, which means the player can skip specific floor levels to make an area feel more spacious.
Because of the close proximity the Pillars must be placed in order to support complete upper levels, some players make use of a Triangular Wooden Floor or Lantern trick that allows for fewer or no Pillars to be used at all when building upwards on the raft. The tricks consists of placing either two triangular floors next to each other or placing a hanging Lantern where a Pillar would usually connect to a floor. When done, removing the supporting Pillar won't cause the floor to break like normal. It is assumed this has to do with the way the game registers for support; if there is something connected to the Pillar area, the floor is supported, be it an actual Pillar, a corner of a Triangular Floor or a Lantern.
