OK here's my epic Terraria base. I spent weeks off and on with this thing. If you noticed I wasn't around on the CG server for days at a time, this is why.

I created/destroyed so many new worlds just to get the materials for this, so I could get different colored dungeon blocks mostly.

One thing I didn't show off there at the end, I decided not to bore anyone further, is that I have a long line of bricks in Hell, ending with a lava pit like the one WhiteBoySlim made, and a house above so you can set your spawn point.

I also have houses at the entrance to the dungeon, corruption, and underground jungle.

I used Tedit to copy in a couple of additions you'll recognize, and also to fix a few things that I can fix with a couple of clicks rather than spending hours destroying and rebuilding. I also used a map program called TerraFirma to find some statues for the statue farm, and a few of the ones I used in the NPC housing. I may or may not have used a chest glitch to get enough wire for all my contraptions. :-X

I took some inspiration for the construction style from #5 on this list: http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/07/13/10-incredible-terraria-creations/

If you're interested in your own obsidian generator, here's how to do it: http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/complete-1-1-obsidian-generator-automatic.66669/

I recorded everything in Bandicam, because FRAPS only lets you do 30 seconds without paying them-- Bandicam allows 10 minutes. But it appears Bandicam's compression leaves a little to be desired, so I recommend watching this in full screen and in 360p if you want to actually see the text.

And now I'm done with Terraria for a while. I definitely want to come back to it between Dec 15 and 31, for the winter content (or I might just change my clock at some point). Santa and packs of snowmen? Sign me up!

Wow that is some epic stuff! Seriously impressive man, wow!

I liked the art hall, the enemy farming zones and just how freaking big your house is. Was that off a small world?

Yes, and I was kinda wishing I'd done medium toward the end, when I couldn't build up very far without hitting space.

That makes sense. After our large world my small starter world seems pretty small. But one can always reroll :)

Terraria has infinite reroll potential. You never get the same world twice.

I know, that's what makes it awesome. Very curious to checkout Minecraft for that end too.

Maybe some time (I am in no rush, because Diablo) we should try Minecraft.

That is awesome! I had a lot of fun playing Terraria with everyone, and while I am looking forward to a break I definitely want to do this again. Maybe around that Christmas time so we can get Santa and that snowman army special event. :)

I think Minecraft with the CheerfulGhost community would be fun. I actually host a minecraft server for me and a couple friends. Not many people play on it anymore, but we had a lot of fun messing around on there for awhile.

I am most likely going to pick up Minecraft in the next bit and try it. Let you know how that develops... I might post something about it :)

I had an extra copy somewhere but I can't find it. Won it in a contest somewhere like a year ago. If it turns up I will give it to you but don't wait up ;)

jdodson   Admin wrote on 08/23/2012 at 02:38am

Awesome, if you find it let me know.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 08/24/2012 at 03:25am

Yeah I kept looking, coming up with long forgotten emails to check, but I don't think I will be able to find it.

Wow that's amazing! No wonder you've spent as much time in Terraria as I did Skyrim! Epic!
