why won't my NCPs move into this house?

  1. ok i have 5 houses right 3 on the ground and 2 on top of the other houses. the ones on top of the other houses are the ones the NCPs will not move into. it says that it is a suitable house. both are 7 tall 12 wide made out of wood with wood walls with a chest a table a chair 1 door (leading to other house) wood platforms for a floor. WHY WON'T THEY MOVE IN

  1. Make sure you meet the individual requirements for each npc. They can be seen here: terraria.gamepedia.com/NPC

  1. You also need a light source for them to move in.

  2. Are you saying that the houses won't let you assign it to an NPC or that it tells you that no one can live there? I think what you're trying to say is that you have assigned houses, but your NPCs won't physically move in.

    As long as you are able to assign a house, they should move in, even if they have to warp. I found a Sky Island directly above the base my guy and I set up, and I assigned the Guide to live in it. After we went exploring, he was up there with no issues.

  3. You have to have a background or "walls" for a NPC to move in

  5. You need at least one solid block to stand on for NPCs. You can't make the whole floor out of wooden platforms.
