I got on late, and it was fun! It'll be sweet watching it grow as we play.

Glad you could join Adym!

Lots of fun. I can't wait for the boss fights.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 02/05/2013 at 05:26pm

When you start fighting bosses and getting demonite, that's when it gets really interesting!

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/05/2013 at 07:19pm

Ahh Demonite! I finally hit some Gold deposits twoard the end of the night. Had a blast spelunking around.

BR   Supporter wrote on 02/05/2013 at 07:37pm

I need to figure out how to build all these new things. Its been at least close to a year since i last played.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/05/2013 at 07:47pm

I keep the wiki open while I am playing :D

http://wiki.terrariaonline.com/Terraria_Wiki

Its an amazing resource!

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 02/05/2013 at 07:50pm

The wiki is essential.

Timogorgon   Member wrote on 02/05/2013 at 08:23pm

Definitely make use of the wiki. Last night was fun, I'm impressed with how much everyone has built already.

Side note/suggestion: When on the server, make sure you select the blue team (open your inventory, click the blue icon on the right above your equipment). That tells you the distance and direction of all your fellow team mates. It makes it easier for us to find each other and explore together. :D

AdamPFarnsworth wrote on 02/05/2013 at 08:36pm

I really need to use the wiki. I feel like there's so much I *can* do in Terraria, but I just don't know. Those pesky known unknowns ;)

Blue_Element wrote on 02/06/2013 at 01:42am

Aww, I'm using a port of terraria on Mac that someone made but the guy only updated it to 1.1.1 (1.1.2 is the current version on windows). So when I try to join it says I'm not using the same version as the server. I really wish I could play with you guys. This sucks. :'(

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/06/2013 at 03:03am

I have had problems with the Linux build, but I saw you in the game so it seems you have figured it out!

Welcome!

Sirdan1013 wrote on 02/08/2013 at 03:29pm

If at any time you guys can't run the server I'd be willing to run mine so you guys can still play together. Just wanted to let you know.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/08/2013 at 05:12pm

Thanks Daniil, lets talk about doing that for the next Terraria server!

If you want to join us, friend me on steam and ill hit you up with the password.

As soon as this gets ported to Linux, I'm in!

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 02/09/2013 at 09:02pm

It kinda works in Linux, but I doubt seriously if there will ever be a port.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/09/2013 at 09:44pm

I got it working in Linux with a native port, if you can get it working in Wine do that.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/09/2013 at 09:45pm

By the way, been having a ton of fun on the server with you guys. Farming the Eater of Worlds is fun. Plus I just got my star cannon, which is rad.

beansmyname   Supporter wrote on 02/09/2013 at 11:38pm

@panickedthumb I see what you mean about a port being a long shot. I didn't realize it was an XNA game.

@jdodson Wine's out since I only have Terraria via Steam.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/09/2013 at 11:40pm

I think you can run Steam games in Wine... I think... :D

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 02/10/2013 at 05:29am

Yeah you can run Wine through Steam and pull it off for plenty of games. I guess since someone took the time to make a Linux wrapper for it, that doesn't work all too well though. You just need to get the windows binaries though, so you CAN get those through Wine at least.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 02/10/2013 at 06:39am

Steam through Wine that is.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/10/2013 at 06:26pm

Yep. And speaking of, I should give it a shot and see how it works. If I try it out ill report back.

beansmyname   Supporter wrote on 02/10/2013 at 07:58pm

Bastion uses XNA, too. I wonder how they managed a working Linux port. I'll redownload it from the Humble Bundle and check it out.

If they've used Wine (like they did for Psychonauts), I imagine that's a tougher road for Steam to follow for implementation on Linux (or the forthcoming Steambox).

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/10/2013 at 08:51pm

Seems that Supergiant used Monogame which allows one to compile the XNA stuff for a myriad of platforms.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 02/10/2013 at 09:03pm

Speaking of Monogame, that's what the wrapper for Linux uses as well. It seems to work *ok* but there are some flaws. Still, if that's the only way you're going to play it, you should.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/10/2013 at 09:06pm

I think any port requires a bit of fit and finish to make excellent. Plus it may have used a version of Monogame that is quite old or whatnot.

beansmyname   Supporter wrote on 02/10/2013 at 09:54pm

Aren't Steam binaries tied to Steam? I would prefer not to install Steam under Wine since it runs natively now.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/11/2013 at 01:57am

Yup. Good point, I figured Steam would let you install a Windows client on Linux no matter what to run under Wine.

Nope. Total bummer too.

beansmyname   Supporter wrote on 02/11/2013 at 04:55am

I'll look for another avenue to pick up Terraria. I'd be willing to suffer through the trials of running it under Monogame. I already run Linux, so I'm used to games working haphazardly, if at all from time to time.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/11/2013 at 05:50am

AND... I have a platinum coin. Never had one before. So rich now.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 02/11/2013 at 04:58pm

bean, you could fire up Steam-in-Wine, download Terraria, then copy those files out to wherever they need to be for the wrapper to access them. Or while I can't say this is the best bet, you could sail the seas under the black flag, me matey.

beansmyname   Supporter wrote on 02/11/2013 at 11:06pm

I may just boot back into Windows, install Terraria, and then grab the files after booting back into Linux. For some reason, though, I think the executables will still look for Steam to authenticate. It's at least worth a shot.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/12/2013 at 02:36am

I don't think they will, I believe Steam just wraps most .exe files.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 02/12/2013 at 06:18pm

Whatever attempts to search out Steam will be overridden by the wrapper. The only way to get Terraria is through Steam, even if you get the disc version it installs through Steam like Skyrim did.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 02/18/2013 at 02:24am

So when are we going to knock down the wall of flesh and start hardmode? I've got us fairly sanitized so we should be relatively safe from the corruption, and even if some gets in we should be able to eliminate it pretty easily.

Also, bean, did you have any luck with the Linux wrapper?

Timogorgon   Member wrote on 02/18/2013 at 06:13pm

So was it you who wrapped the whole village in the dungeon blue brick? That's pretty awesome!

I'm open to hardmode anytime, and can help kill/farm the wall of flesh (I have like 8 voo doo dolls) as long as it's after 8pm pacific. :)

I'm also willing to help out any less equipped members of the server get caught up gear wise. I can help farm EoC/EoW or provide an escort to the underworld for hellstone. I know there are several hearts unclaimed around the world (especially in the the dungeon and the underworld) for anyone who hasn't hit 400 HP yet.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 02/18/2013 at 07:16pm

Yes, that was me. Encased us in safe brick and put a trench around everything to keep the corruption out. I basically created a new world to farm it for bricks so it wouldn't ugly up our dungeon. The clowns' bombs won't blow everything up now. The stuff above the ground is still susceptible, but it won't screw us up as much as it could have.

Today I made a LONG platform in the underworld to fight the Wall. In the process I found enough dolls to fill a chest, so we can farm the hell out of him.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/19/2013 at 01:36am

That's awesome, lets setup a time we meet to fight the wall to hard-mode.

Timogorgon   Member wrote on 02/19/2013 at 05:29pm

I can't do it tonight, but I'm free pretty much any other night this week after 8pm pacific. :)

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 02/19/2013 at 09:04pm

8 PM pacific is when I start NOT being available. :)

How about tomorrow night we get started at 7 or 7:30 PM Pacific, 10 or 10:30 PM Eastern, so we can both do the same event? Hardmode is a beast without some of the stuff you get from the Wall, and it's much better to do the wall with help.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/19/2013 at 09:30pm

Tomorrow 2/20 @ 7P PST is fine by me.

AdamPFarnsworth wrote on 02/19/2013 at 09:44pm

So what exactly is Hardmode? (I probably could look that up on the wiki, right?)

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/19/2013 at 09:48pm
Timogorgon   Member wrote on 02/19/2013 at 09:48pm

I can't promise I'll be on any earlier than 8pm pst, but I'll try. :) If anything you guys can start Farming the wall earlier and I'll just jump when I can.

The greenhouse/mushroom farm I made under my house was intended for everyone's use. Feel free to make up a couple batches of potions to use during the fight. Supplies are in the chests. Since I'll be jumping on late if you could make a couple extra for me that would be greatly appreciated so I can jump straight into the fight when I log in. I have plenty of healing potions, so don't worry about those.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/19/2013 at 09:49pm

Cool, ill need to check out alchemy, this far I haven't brewed something yet.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 02/19/2013 at 10:28pm

"If anything you guys can start Farming the wall earlier and I'll just jump when I can."

Sorry, that's what I meant! I wasn't very clear. Suggesting that we could both do the event if we started it before 11 and it ran until after 11. Or 8, for you west coast freaks :D

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/21/2013 at 03:31am

Ok the world is now in Hardmode. Waiting for WhiteboySlim for more WOF runs!

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/21/2013 at 06:58am

Ok so WBS and I broke up a bunch demon altars and didn't have too hard of a time finding cobalt and a bit of the next hard mode mineral.

I don't think breaking any more demon altars will help us out too much more.

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 02/21/2013 at 01:49pm

More demon altars will always help. We really only need the ones we craft with, the others don't do us any good and we may as well deposit more ores! Adamantite is always so freakin' hard to find.

Blue_Element wrote on 02/21/2013 at 04:20pm

Is there a way to "un-follow" a post so it doesn't give me all the notifications? Also I have another suggestion for the site; it would be nice if you could "like/favorite/+1" a post or something like that. :)

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/21/2013 at 04:31pm

We are going to add the ability to follow a post, I think it would be possible to un-follow it too. Ill add that to the list. Right now, if you want to un-follow you can delete your comments if its REALLY annoying. :D

We are looking at how to like/favoriate a post for sure. That shouldn't be too far away as with the follow/un-follow a post.

Blue_Element wrote on 02/22/2013 at 12:28am

Awesome! :D

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/27/2013 at 01:04am

Hey everyone I want to submit that we end this current Terraria game next week Saturday or March 9th. It was a good run, but its winding down and I think two more weeks will give us plenty of time to play it and end on a good note.

What say you?

AdamPFarnsworth wrote on 02/27/2013 at 01:20am

I haven't been on for a week or so, so I'm good with that lol

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 02/27/2013 at 03:44am

March 9 sounds good. I haven't had enough time to get in lately, so that'll give me some time to catch up. We should talk about the boss fights too-- we still have some hard asses.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/27/2013 at 03:49am

Yep. @WhiteboySlim and I tackled the hard mode eater of worlds and he was a pain, but I recently got the Megashark so that should help out some :D

beansmyname   Supporter wrote on 03/02/2013 at 10:30pm

Sorry for the delay in responding, @travis. Didn't get a chance to try the Linux wrapper. Was embroiled in an address change and my Windows partition became history before that.

I may have to go the 'Seven Seas' route to find the executable now. OTOH, it is POSSIBLE that Terraria might get to Steam. Bastion (also written for XNA) works without issue with full controller support.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 03/02/2013 at 10:54pm

I'd say that wouldn't happen but the PC dev started work on the game again, and apparently there's a major update coming. If he'd respond to my request to interview him, I'd totally ask him about a Linux version :)

jdodson   Admin wrote on 03/09/2013 at 01:28am

Hey y'all. First off, hanging out with you all in the server was rad.

Second off, I think this is the longest site thread ever, so woot.

Third off, server is halting tommorow and a bit after that ill pass out the world for us to all have like last time.

Tha is again!
