Terraria

I tried starting a new solo game after the patch and just couldn't get into it. Jumped into multiplayer with Erik and the crew and it was a blast. We started with not much else then a ghetto dirt tunnel and managed to construct the respectable stone complex you see above.

The new mouse controls are really handy for things like filling pools with water and shifting furniture. But you have to be careful. LMB is use, RMB is throw. Remember that. I tried to throw a crystal heart to Fedora and ended up using it instead. He later returned the favour by trying to return some "empty" buckets to me and ended up pouring lava onto my face.

That was hilarious. Especially because I was the only person in the house the not be killed by the lava.

Also, linking your profile makes it easier to invite.

Invited you both.

I have sent an invite to him, he was the player playing with us yesterday?

Ok, I bit. Would love an invite when someone has a chance.

Alright, somehow I don't think I"m in the steam group, can I get an invite? Profile's in the sig.

Steam won't let me send you one.

He probably already has an invite.

Also I'll probably be spending some more time on my server this evening if anyone wants to join me again.

Now that I have a copy, I should probably join the Steam group. Er, wait, no, nevermind, I guess I already have an invite! Ha!

Yup, missed the group when looking and noticed I was in it after I posted. Can I get some server details, I didn't see them in the last page.

Also, the reason I missed it was because the image didn't stand out enough, maybe this would help:

So far doing fairly well other than a million deaths, a few dull silver sword and a annoying iron bow. I got a large house and I recently got moonglow and blinkroot seeds. All I need now is some sand- I can't seem to find any.

I have 4 armor +3 defense shackle (I'm wearing my +4 ) and I'm willing to trade ;).

edit: Luck change : deadly gold pickaxe ,hasty silver bow ;).

Are the server details in the original post still accurate, or are people playing elsewhere? If I can pry myself away from Minecraft for a bit this weekend, I'd love to see what sorts of things the GWJ crowd has been doing with Terraria.

EriktheRed made a post on the steam group. It's under events I think.

I have received no such invite, but I am in the process of making the server

edit: And now I know why.

Indeed, hopefully I'm not missing something as I see no password.

I logged in with no password this morning.

Yeah I didn't set a password for it, but I may in the future if we get more invested in the world.

Me, Erik and the crew have some tentative plans to have a Terraria Thursday event where we all get together and do the special content like bosses as a group while upgrading and decorating our headquarters.

I see the IP for the server but the client asks for a port which I don't the default for Terraria.

Nevermind, 7777.

Pyramid of boulders!

Caution: Do not hit with pick

One look at that and I'm speechless, Awesome!
Question, are bosses only spawnable by use of items? I have only fought the Eye of Cthulu by summoning it and nothing else... No Blood moons either

Messed around with a pre-existing trap to make:

Spoiler:

A Bomb Factory!!! Curious what other statues yield (So far angel and shield statue do nothing (underground anyway))

Server is still in very early stages, grappling hook is, approximately, the best craftable tool available right now. Black Lotus is hosting a 24hr server, details on the Steam group page.

Could I get a steam group invite? Eleazar6

Eyes of Chthulu tend to show up when your character is strong enough and hasn't fought one yet. Sometimes at night you will get a "an evil gaze is watching you" kind of message. The other two bosses show up in the course of normal play too.

I can see this being addictive.

Really? A name like that and no one said a word?

I don't even know you people anymore...

*walks away looking confused*

Since the patch I have only really seen one new addition that has made an actual difference. I saw videos with a bunch of really cool new things, but so far I have only encountered the Wall of Flesh, which I don't know how to fight.

That Wall of Flesh is the key to seeing those cool new things, unfortunately. If you're looking for tips on fighting it:

Spoiler:

Ironskin potion, Molten armor, Night's Edge and a few healing potions. If you know how to control it, a gravitation potion will do wonders. I'm sure you could do with less than what I've recommended here, but that's how I did it, and I ended on 100 hp.

WOOO I got my diving helmet. 2% drop rate my ass, it took me 88 tries. After getting my Big Daddy impression on I decided to craft some diving gear. Now I can mine hellstone underlava!

I'm not close to the new contents yet. I broke two orbs so far and I need to build an arena before I break the third. I did some jungle exploring before doing the corruption content. It also took me awhile to get a hook for a grappler and but when I did I upgraded it with jungle loot( It required me another run though). I also made a Blade of Grass which is better than the demonine sword I previously used. I'm currently in silver armor but I got plenty of ore. I don't think I'll upgraded to gold at all.

I started with a moonglow blinkroot and added daybloom later ( I couldn't find any at the beginning which is unusual but spices things up). What I really want now is a spear type weapon. Yesterday a goblin raid came but I didn't get anything special from them. In the middle of their raid it was time for me to go to work (I was at home with my sick daughter) so I left it on and finished them when I came back from work .

I'll make a screen shot later but my house looks like a public housing project(good thing the NPCs have really low standards). My house is about 5 or 6 floor with 3 rooms per floor. It's pretty much a grid. It's mostly underground with a ground level entrance.

I know it's well intentioned, but I can't help thinking a big list (and it's a big list, not just a few points) for a game such as Terraria is half-way missing the point and breaking the experience of discovery for new players. Sure, most people will eventually get to an 'optimal' way of playing to get through the content, but it shouldn't be rushed.
