So I'm building a floor of iron bars over my pit of log spikes that surrounds my base. I build a wooden platform not long ago and I didn't use enough supports and during a 7th day horde it feel down, so I'd like to avoid that if possible. So how often would an iron bar floor require support?

If I'm not mistaken its every 4th bar u can do 33 bars but the 4th bar needs to be supported by a piller, are you on ps4? If you are u can show you

It depends on what those iron bars are attached to. Look at the 'max load' of what they are attached to (i.e. The block providing vertical support) and divide by the mass of iron bars (20).
