So you're combating those fears of spiders in Grounded, eh? There are a few things you need to know about this miniaturized adventure with the first being how to make floors in Grounded. This is a survival game, which means tricks are needed when coming out on top. Or in this case, the bottom, because that's typically where floors go.
How to Make Floors In Grounded
To get started, you're going to want to actually play the game. No duh, right? But seriously, the story quests are crucial for learning new skills on how to surprise. To kickstart this particular feature, you're going to want to complete one quest that will task you with investigating an old oak tree exploding. Once there, there is a room in the back that houses a robot labeled 'BURG.L', it's super important for fleshing out those in-game skills.
In the same room nearby, you'll find a Chip that goes with the robot, insert that chip into BURG.L and the interaction will commence. When prompted, select the option that says 'I'll trade you some Raw Science' in order to see its wares. Using 1,000 Raw Science, you will then need to unlock the Multi-Story Bases feature, which contains exactly what is needed in order to build a floor in Grounded.
Once Multi-Story Bases has been unlocked, go then back to your base and start building. To build a floor, you're going to need 4 Grass Planks per panel, so the bigger the floor the more resources you're going to need. Luckily, Grass Planks are pretty easy to obtain simply by hacking away at grass with an axe, so just keep choppin' until that desired number is reached.
