That was with no cave-ins on. This was with cave-ins on.

So it is. I thought the sky-support thing was well known; in any case, I wonder how it took this long for someone to take the plunge and make it happen. Congratulations itg!

Thanks! To my knowledge, the community has been aware of the basics of sky support for a long time, but nobody thought to cast obsidian over the furniture and then dig stairs over it; that's what makes it possible to have a working fort with workshops and bedrooms rather than just a "surveillance platform" of supports and floors. Also, I discovered that sky support can be used to engineer some surprising cave-ins, including collapsing semi-molten rock into the HFS.
