This event is over

happening all day
one spot left, get it soon!
Terraria on Steam

You know what to do folks. In the first few days things may be a little shaky while things get ironed out. I'm trying TShock, so I'll be learning what we can do in the first few days. Come join the fun!

A few rules:

1. Be excellent to each other. Don't mess with people's stuff or their builds unless they've said it's ok. (I doubt this one even needs to be said with you guys)
2. Keep your builds at least three blocks above ground to allow people to pass freely, or build underground.
3. This is a server for new characters, and you should use only items you find as you play this character with the exception of the few starter items we provide in the starter chest (platforms, torches, potions, magic mirror), any items that are only aesthetic (vanity items, special kinds of blocks), or wiring tools (teleporters, switches, pumps, etc). Basically, don't use anything to give yourself an advantage over anyone else.

TShock gives us Warp ability, so whenever we get to a new place, we can set a warp location so when we want to go to the dungeon, for example, we can just type /warp dungeon

I'm open to ideas for how better to use TShock, so if you have any experience feel free to suggest things.
You will need to sign in to join this event.

BTW, I totally claimed the area under the lake :)

Timogorgon   Member wrote on 08/15/2014 at 10:54pm

Since you're going under the lake, I guess I'll go next to it. :)

I built my base a little wider than I usually do, so to kind of off set that I built it a little further away from the starting area than usual as well. Should be plenty of room for everyone else.

Two quick suggestions though: Can we get a piggy bank in the starting house? I tried to place one earlier, but it disappeared and told me the region is locked. >.> Second, when we start building NPC housing, let's built up this time. On our last server once we turned on hard mode wraiths and similar mobs kept killing off NPC's by passing through the ground.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 08/15/2014 at 11:28pm

Hey guys just wanted you to know, I might not have a ton of time to play this. I wish I did, but I don't think I do.

Second. Mind if I share this with some local game groups to see if others are interested in joining in?

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/16/2014 at 12:14am

I've approved everyone. See you in game!

And WBS, I was thinking the same, like next to the starter hut or something.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/16/2014 at 02:49am

As requested, piggy bank and safe added to the starter hut.

Also, I've added everyone who's started so far as users. When you sign in, go into chat and type /login terraria2014

Yes, everyone's password is terraria2014. You can change that when you sign in with /password

If you see that you can't do some things that you would like to do, let me know.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/16/2014 at 03:18am

I should also add, it's not only allowed, but suggested, that you have another world to pillage while playing on the server. There's no way we're all going to be able to find a red balloon in the floating islands, for example.

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 08/16/2014 at 08:53pm

Hopefully, I'll join soon. I'm sorry I haven't started yet. I've been playing Red Alert 3 and am trying to finish up the Empire's missions. I think there are a few missions left, I might be done with the game soon, although these missions don't seem to be getting any easier.

What kind of pillaging do you refer to, Travis? Chests and pots? I remember the other CG worlds had unbroken pots by the time I downloaded them, do you guys leave pots unbroken?

Timogorgon   Member wrote on 08/16/2014 at 11:16pm

Pots regenerate randomly, so pots aren't the problem. The problem is with the really rare loot, like floating island items. I've also found looting our old CG server worlds is a pretty easy way to get some stuff. :)

I started a rough outline of the new NPC housing, but would love to hear everyone's thoughts/input before going forward. here's what i have so far: http://imgur.com/QgIhIh5.
Currently, the stairs are set up so as not to interfere while running in either direction. I may have to take out the bottom set of stairs though to keep mobs out. Zombies were jumping up to the top level while I was working on it. :\
I didn't count how wide the structure is but it is an even number so dividing up the living areas should be easy.

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 08/17/2014 at 12:12am

Ok, I got in, but briefly. It said something about the area being locked and I'd have to login to make changes. It also said to type /help for a list of commands, but I was able to do that once, but not sure how. Sorry, I'm new to Terraria multiplayer, I don't know how to chat or use commands, I'm trying to look up that info. I've created a character called "CG GregoPeck."

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/17/2014 at 02:31am

Read my comment earlier about logging in. You shouldn't be restricted from anything but modifying the starter hut. I did that just so that exploding things couldn't take it out. But logging in gets you a few cool things that the TShock mod adds, like teleporting, sending fireworks to people, and other fun/useful things.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/17/2014 at 02:42am

Also, WBS, I think the zombies will stay out in general. One other thing that may help, zombies don't use ropes. If it becomes a problem we can use those.

I like what you've started, I'll help build it in that direction as well. Full disclosure, I'll probably grab a ton of stuff from other worlds/characters to build the NPC housing, but nothing non-aesthetic that would give us any edge over where we currently are.

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 08/17/2014 at 02:53am

Travis, I'm sorry that I forgot about that comment you wrote with the necessary information. Thanks for reminding me.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/17/2014 at 02:46pm

No sweat :)

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/17/2014 at 09:32pm

Hey, just so you all know, earlier I found two goblin tinkerers tied up. They both showed up at home. I rebooted the server, and then there were three in town. I killed off two of them by spawning zombies on them, but you may find more of them and they may duplicate themselves.

Take a look of my screenshot I took tonight as Travis was riding a big bunny!

Timogorgon   Member wrote on 08/20/2014 at 05:25pm

That's quite the fish costume he has also. The balloon he's holding is a nice touch too.

It's Minecraft, but I figured y'all would get a kick out of it :)

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/20/2014 at 06:53pm

The balloon is the cloud in a balloon. Accessories are now visible, if you want them to be. But yeah, a sad looking fish holding a balloon is pretty amusinc.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/24/2014 at 10:32pm

When do you guys want to pop open hardmode?

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 08/24/2014 at 11:44pm

Well, I'm ready! I've been feeling like there's not much for me to do other than the fishing quests. Aside from that, I made a long path along the lava at the bottom to the left. Characters can get all the way to the left side without falling into lava, until the very edge where a pool is open. I did something like this in my own world the first time I played the game, except that I had both sides covered, with a minor exception at the ends to drop in a Voodoo Doll. This way, you have plenty of room to fight the Wall without falling into lava. I'd like to complete my work on the right side, but I've run out of materials, so I'll have to get more dirt, stone, mud, ash, etc. to continue.

I did go to my own world to grab a Murasama (for Night's Edge) and an Enchanted Boomerang (for Flamarang). One or two of us could take out the Wall. There are plenty of Voodoo Doll's in Tim's Hell house.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/25/2014 at 01:47am

Uhm... Tim and I did the path to the right for fighting the wall. We didn't see a path either way so we did that. You can run the whole way with no worry about jumping so you don't get stuck. I know that's killed me a few times.

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 08/25/2014 at 02:05am

Cool, I noticed the beginnings of a path to the right when I created the one to the left. I worked on it and then noticed that someone else did, too.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/25/2014 at 02:58am

I finally started playing with mine carts. I don't know why it took me this long, they're super fun. We now have a quick way back to the sacrificial altar after fighting the wall of flesh. :)

Timogorgon   Member wrote on 08/25/2014 at 04:49pm

I'm good for hardmode. Do you guys think you'll be on tonight?

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 08/25/2014 at 08:14pm

What time do you think you'll be on?

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/25/2014 at 09:16pm

Yeah if we get started by 10 Eastern/ 7 Central I'm game. Made us a bunch of potions! We'll be well-buffed. I was out sick today so I've been fishing lava for the fish needed for inferno potions. Didn't quite get three full stacks. I also made ironskin, regeneration, and bowl of soup. They're all in the chest in the hell house.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/25/2014 at 09:20pm

Oh also, Greg, I found a Muramasa in the dungeon. There were still quite a few locked chests in there.

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 08/25/2014 at 09:55pm

Cool, perhaps Jon can use that one.

Timogorgon   Member wrote on 08/25/2014 at 10:14pm

There were more locked chests? Man, that was a really rich dungeon this time around. I probably unlocked a good dozen or more chests when I explored it (I left a lot of the chests un-looted, because I either didn't need or already had the item) and there were a lot of chests already opened by the time I got there.

As far as tonight goes, I probably won't be able to get on before 8pm pacific, and even then I might be a little late depending on how quickly I get some errands done earlier today. So if you want to do the WoF tonight you can start without me I'm if you need to. I'm OK with that. :)

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 08/26/2014 at 03:16am

We defeated the WoF quite a few times together. We stored some loot in a new box at "home." I'll probably play more, just going to look up stuff to get and make. I'll keep an eye open for you and, if you want, we can go up against the WoF.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/26/2014 at 03:23am

I came here to saw what Greg said. If you need a pwnhammer we got you covered. Take 10!

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 08/26/2014 at 04:03am

Oh and I believe Travis only destroyed one demon altar. So, that would mean we can/should destroy two more if I am correct.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/26/2014 at 01:01pm

No, we should destroy many more. There are three tiers of hardmode ore that altars/hearts will seed the world with, so if you destroy three you get some of all three, BUT the more we destroy the more there will be to mine.

Timogorgon   Member wrote on 08/26/2014 at 04:17pm

I destroyed five last night, so including the one you destroyed that should be six total so far. It shouldn't be hard to find more though.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/26/2014 at 08:44pm

I've destroyed probably 8 or 9 today. The more the merrier!

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/26/2014 at 08:45pm

Also, after going around looking for altars, I mined up enough for what I need and built a mechanical boss arena to the right of town. /warp arena

Tested it out, it works well. I confess to stealing heart/star statues from our previous world.

Timogorgon   Member wrote on 08/26/2014 at 10:07pm

HOW DARE YOU BRING ITEMS FROM PREVIOUS WORLDS no actually I think we all have brought some stuff over. I brought over a few ease-of-use things and some appropriate leveled gear. I am also going to warn you that I plan to bring over my ankh shield now that we're in hardmode, 'cause I have no interest in harvesting all those items again, lol.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/26/2014 at 10:25pm

Yes, I'll agree with that. That thing is a pain to put together.

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 08/27/2014 at 12:06am

Ha, I've been storing items for that shield. Oh, I haz Rainbow Brick, so I'm expanding my home by adding an additional floor. I have found some Chlorophyte, but I need some Hallowed Bars for a Drax. I'm not sure I'm ready to fight the new bosses alone, presently. I do have the new pink armor set and am looking for Titanium. I'm also look for Life Fruit, and am thinking of collecting those in my own world. I'm not sure if they respawn. The only things I really got from that one and brought to this one were the Murasama and Enchanted Boomerang. I have stored some sets or pieces crafted with most of the new ore, so feel free to pick some of those up if you want them.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/27/2014 at 01:49am

They do respawn. Plus, I found enough to fill me up to 500 in a pretty small range. There are plenty of them.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/28/2014 at 09:21pm

When I'm on lately, Greg and I are the only ones around so I'm not sure what all you guys have seen. I have popped open the Lihzhard Temple and cleaned out all the traps. There's a chest next to the Golem altar thingie with power cells to summon him. I'm planning on making an arena for him as well, but nothing so cheap as the last one (where basically you just watch him die). Then I might also make an arena for moon events with traps and such. I still haven't seen the end of the frost moon. You can set holidays with Tshock, so I can force it to be halloween or Christmas when we're ready to start farming up stuff for the moon events.

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 08/28/2014 at 11:36pm

I have my Turtle Armor and with it I defeated Plantera and the Temple boss. I have also crafted a Golden Shower. =) I pretty much finished my additional floor with rainbow brick and block. I got some more, so I may expand later. I need to go to the Dungeon and fight the Paladin so I can get his shield. I'm also farming Ankh Shield materials.

I liked the arena you guys set up on one of the old CG worlds for the Frost and Pumpkin moon events. I thought it was helpful, even though I didn't manage to complete it. I'm sure with two or three of us, it'll be sweet.

Timogorgon   Member wrote on 08/29/2014 at 02:37am

I haven't been getting on until late because apparently my 1 year old hates sleep lately. I actually haven't done too much since we popped hardmode. I've upgraded to the middle tier hardmode armor (the pink ore, I forget what it's called) and that's about it. I started to dig out a tunnel to the temple, only to realize you had set a warp point there (DOH). I explored the temple for awhile and managed to get two power cells as drops, but I'm not really equipped for fighting in there yet, and died right as I reached the golem room.

I'm very much looking forward to trying out the frost/pumpkin moon events with you guys, but i definitely need to improve my gear before I'll be ready for that.

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 08/29/2014 at 03:13am

There's a new "home" chest that has some of the latest gear and ore that I've stored. Help yourself to what you find there. I noticed that someone dug a tunnel to the temple. I've found all the Chlorophyte I need for now and the jungle is huge, so it shouldn't be too hard to get more. I've also stored some Ectoplasm, which I haven't used yet. Again, help yourself. There are also random things I've stored in chests in the jungle, so feel free to check those if you need some Life Fruit.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/29/2014 at 03:30am

I think we could clean those chests out a bit. Nobody will ever need a shackle. And if you do need one, just play at night for five minutes :)

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 08/29/2014 at 06:04am

Yeah, I've done some cleaning, maybe not much.

Timogorgon   Member wrote on 08/29/2014 at 04:51pm

I raided the chests last night, so thanks for leaving me nice gear upgrades. :P
Paired with a particularly bountiful Solar Eclipse I now have a Terra blade and possibly arthritis in my right index finger (so... much... clicking...)
I still gotta craft up some better accessories and I'd like to upgrade my armor another tier or two before doing any kind of special moon events, but now that it's the weekend I should be able to play some more and should get caught up pretty quick. :)

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 08/29/2014 at 07:08pm

You're very welcome. I'm always glad when someone can use something I've stored in those chests. I think I forgot about the Terra Blade, so thanks for reminding me. I'm using a Godly Possessed Hatchet now. I still have my True Night's Edge. I've picked up a couple of other weapons and spells I've held on to.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/30/2014 at 02:12pm

Kudos to whomever wired up my teleporter to the goldfish, king, piranha, and bird statues. I was so confused as to why a random NPC was showing up whenever I teleported in.

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 08/30/2014 at 06:45pm

It wasn't me.

What did we wire up in Jon's house last time? I can't remember.

Timogorgon   Member wrote on 08/31/2014 at 03:29am

It was his bunny statue. During a blood moon I flooded his house with corrupted bunnies, but he never came up to the surface to see it. :P

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 09/04/2014 at 01:15am

Hey Travis, I wanted to let you know that I believe I accidentally got a lever from your home. WBS & I were fighting The Destroyer. We didn't see the souls drop and thought it was underground, beneath the arena, and therefore in or around your manor. As I went down to investigate, I noticed you put up a lever on one of your bottom doors to the right. I activated it, but it seems it got in my inventory. So, I have stored it in a chest for you. Warp to the arena. It's in the first chest to the left.

I haven't done much on our server lately. I'm at a point to where I'm not sure what to do other than reforging my accessories and fishing. I decided to create yet another new world and another new character. I think your manor inspired me a bit to work on something similar on my own. I've already built a large shelter for me and NPCs. I've also created a trophy room to store my trophies, banners, armors, etc. I found out how you created the CG4 letters and number. I had never crafted the thing that lets you make them before. Now I'm thinking of moving it away from my main crafting area so I don't have to scroll through a bunch of letters and numbers.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know about the lever.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 09/05/2014 at 01:07am

HOW DARE YOU STEAL MY LEVER nah that's ok. Thanks for storing it.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 09/05/2014 at 01:11am

Also, if you did get it from my house, I can't find where it came from. So no harm done! :)

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 09/05/2014 at 01:57am

You're welcome. I believe it was attached to a door on the bottom right side of your manor. If you go above ground, above your house, go to the right, and then follow the mine cart rail down and to the left, you'll come across a door that has a lever on the inside, but not the outside. The one I found was on the outside. I don't even know how to use levers or wiring, but it's something I might so experiment with in my own new world since my huge building is sitting between two pools of water. I intend to make a bridge so that most enemies can't get near my building. I had placed the outside doors on the second level of my building, but had to add platforms so that I could jump up there and get it. Unfortunately, zombies were able to do the same, so I removed them. Luckily, I have a grappling hook now, so I can get up there and they can't get it.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 09/07/2014 at 08:10pm

Greg and Tim, if you could pop in to the server at some point and do one of the various things that froze you for no apparent reason, I might finally be able to get to the bottom of it. I talked to the clanforge support team, awesome support by the way, and had then add the freezecheck plugin to their tshock arsenal. It should now tell you why you're getting frozen and that might help to figure out exactly what was going on. Greg, I don't think you've had this issue for a while, but Tim you mentioned it was happening last night so there's obviously something still going on.

Timogorgon   Member wrote on 09/14/2014 at 01:31am

I played for awhile today and froze once while fighting duke fishron (and a TERRIBLE time I might add). Not sure why. I was using a Flairon and it happened when I tried to switch to my Golden Shower to debuff him again. Otherwise I can't seem to trigger a freeze effect reliably.

I did get frozen several times later while doing a Frost Moon event, but uhhh... there's a good chance that was happening because of the ice queen. :P

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 10/17/2014 at 07:31pm

Hey folks, I've saved the world file from the server and I'm now sharing it with you so you can play it whenever you want, and loot the everyone else's stuff. :)
