Sadly the floor doesn't actually count as a roof piece it has to be the actual roof piece and be sure if your building the roof high you have support pillars supporting it every like 1 or 2 blocks cause it will crumble, what I do I build my base 2 walls high and then build a floor above that and then on that upper floor build the roof over that and use that floor to build solely the pillars to support the roof so I don't have to deal with pillars in the way of my base main floor you will have to have support on the base floor of additional levels of your base if its big cause the integrity wont allow it so I just build walls on my base floor instead of pillars so I can use the wall for separation of rooms and stuff, once you get a roof over everything the actual degradation will stop the only damage I get now is if the big enemies break through my base and hit the actual walls. As far as I know no the fire will not damage your home I have countless fires in my house and I haven't had any damage from them.

Do you have a roof over everything, if ANY part of your structure is exposed to the rain it will get damaged and I mean any part that doesn't have a roof directly above it, this degradation speed is the only part I don't like about this game.
Snow/Mountain Freezing question
I was reading the comments to see if I could find an answer to see how to keep from freezing and the latest post I seen was craft the troll armor to keep from freezing but, I have that and I still freeze and get hurt I don't really want to go through tons of potions or food to heal and I don't want to have to constantly build a structure to keep warm cause I don't want to keep mats on me kind of defeats the purpose of exploring and looting if you have no room for the loot so how does one get iron and if you cant go into the cold without dieng besides finding it in random chests I'm kind of at an impass right now cause I need Iron to proceed and all the loot I can access at the moment that I know of I have tons of and don't need, yes I do know its in development and stuff may not be added but, was kind of wondering if I'm stuck looting a million different chests or if there was a way?
I would really like the decay of your structures to be slowed down just a tad its a little much, I like building structures but to have to keep the repair up cause of rain or whatever it is all the time and really a lot before you get roofs on is my only gripe about the game so far I might of thought it was acid rain and I would understand the decay part but then it would eat through the roofs and hurt everything so the rate of decay that your structures takes is to fast I don't want it taken out just slowed down other then that I love to see where this game goes I love it.
