1.3 Server plan
Posted: Posted June 25th, 2015 by Moonray

Dooku will be away when 1.3 launches so I'll be updating the server and such.

My current planet is to just go ahead and get it up and running on launch day assuming it launches at a reasonable time, otherwise it'll be the next day.

There will be a map reset as there are new features & biomes that likely won't populate themselves into existing maps. So if you're using the server to store anything or just want to get items off of the server, make sure you take it off the server by the 30th. I'll make the current map available as a download at some point too.

Chances are the extras we use (tshock, for example) won't be ready for at minimum a few days after launch, possibly longer. So we'll be playing a vanilla server, which means certain extras won't be available (protection for example). We've not had a problem with people wrecking stuff anyway so I figure this won't be a problem, that said if you find someone breaking all your stuff or stealing from you just let me know :)

So yea, 30th we'll be on 1.3 (unless they delay it).

Don't rush bosses/Events; so as not to make it near unplayable for legit newb characters such as myself.

Couldn't walk five steps without getting my face ripped off by zombies or whatever. (Newb as in new to the world; not the game.)

Not the type for handouts either. :T

Ok I actually won't be able to do this all tomorrow as I have stay at work late. So it'll be Wednesday when this is done.

No prob. Prefer to learn new stuff in a single player world anyway. There will be plenty to keep us busy.

Yeah, when there's a lot of new content, I find it easier to get familiar with it at my own pace. One day late for the server is fine by me.

Would you guys want to enable expert mode?

Does some things that might be good. Scales boss health to # of people, among other modifiers.

Oh yeah that's right, we're doing a failover exercise at work tomorrow evening so I won't be able to play until Wednesday. I'm so glad the fucking company is closing.

Expert mode would be cool but I was thinking maybe do it after the initial 1.3 play through?

Expert mode seems fine. Also, will a big gay announcement thread be made for the server relaunch?

I wanna play but I won't be home until maybe 10pm at the latest. DAMN IT

Maybe I'll take a sick day tomorrow...

Finally starting my new char/world. After my file updated, the whole thing became corrupt, so I had to reinstall all the files. To many mods, I guess. They are all gone now.

You aren't missing much Nathan.



Just literally the greatest thing to happen to terraria in forever.

I thought the new update only contained mine carts, and other silliness.

This. This is like a new game.

Hmm, I recall you saying you're not a fan of mouse/keyboard controls... Does anyone know if the PC version has gamepad support?

If you opt to get one of the console ports, just be warned they will not be getting all this shiny new "1.3" content for a long time.

No.

It's on sale right now. I think it's like $7.50.

I have a program that has the capability to add pad support to anything by forcing the keyboard controls onto the pad buttons. I use it to get my non-X-Box controller to work with games like Goat Simulator, Dust, and GTA4.

It's called "Pinnacle Game Profiler".

From what I've seen; Pinnacle profiler doesn't work well with this game.

I haven't played any of the non-PC ports of this game, but I really have a hard time imagining playing it without a mouse given all the aiming that you do in the game.

@iMac, yea don't worry I'll stick an announcement up top when it's done so that everyone knows when it is done.

@Mr Nathan. I agree, I honestly cannot imagine this game being as fun with other formats. I feel like it'd probably be more frustrating than anything.

Posted June 30th, 2015 by Moonray

Yeah, never even bothered trying Pinnacle on Terraria. My nephew got the X-Box version, and we both hated it. He ended up trading it in for Halo 4.

I was going to buy this for the ps vita but I will buy it for the pc. A tablet would be able to play this right.

HOW DO I CRAFT

Chop down a tree, make a workbench.

You can show items to the guide and he'll show you all the recipees that they use.

The snow is good place for a base because it spawns fewer enemies (generally).

"made 5 work benches"

That's fine. Just use the other benches as a weapon to kill the zombies.

We will all be meeting up in a comunity world, hopefully tomorrow, Furtive.

These new Giant Shelly enemies underground are driving me nuts. They charge at you so fast.

Also found an abandoned minetrack with a broken cabin, a new mushroom biome cabin, and the new underground desert area, which I have dubbed the Antlion Nest, since they seem to love swarming down there.

Furtive, here is a very thourough guide to the game, that even I still use occasionally when I forget something;

Can't we join other worlds via steam?

That's the idea, but every online world needs a host server, which someone has to buy, in our case, Count Dooku does it. He creates a local world on his PC, connects it to he server (We use Tshock), and uploads it. Moonray and Jathan are the admins he hires. Used to be Helius, but he was inactive on the last GT server.

There are plenty of free public online servers out there you can explore. We just do a private one. Here is a list of public servers;

So I know you didn't ask me for it, but basically if there's any advice I could give you, it's explore explore explore. Find gear that makes your life easier (like the boots that let you run, or find either a hook or a lot of gems so you can make a grappling hook... just as two examples). Don't throw anything out because there's a lot of stuff you might be able to craft together into really useful equipment eventually. Also.... do not defeat the boss in hell until you have the best possible gear because defeating him triggers hard mode which is permanent and (as the name suggests) makes things a lot harder for you.

You kidding? I already lost to Eye of Cthulu twice, and I'm not even on Expert! I seriously need better armor then this tin and iron crap. Need to find more silver and platinum.

Count Dooku does it.


I pay half every so often.

As for tshock, they're currently estimating Saturday for their release. So it looks like we'll be using vanilla initially, I'm not sure we desperately need to use tshock as long as everyone sticks to the rules.
