    Anyone know of good public servers? PC game world has one at 85.236.100.22 port 8577, but I guess its super crowded because I havent had much luck getting in it.

    The pool was mostly to make sure water was available if/when it was needed. It never actually got drained before we switched worlds.

    That shaft goes all the way to the bottom of the map and it was used to duct water away from areas of interest as well as leading water to lava so obsidian could be mined. It is a very effective system and resulted in well over 2000 obsidian mined. Now with 1.0.5, we can't mine the bountiful supplies of lava in the underworld anymore. :(

    I use LogMeIn Hamachi thing, which I highly recommend. It's AtomicMonkey with the numbers being 5.241.235.227
    I'm always connected to the internet since I'm using a Cat6 cable(s) from the modem to the router and from the router to the Gigabit switch. I just enjoy building and the character name is DerpoMan.
    Oh my SteamID is The_Flash2019. (Somebody from the forums keeps inviting me to play Left4Dead 2 but I don't own it yet. Retail VALVe Source titles, never digital distribution.)

    It works fine without a VPN (e.g. Hamachi) even behind a NAT (as long as the serving port is forwarded).

    Oh the Hamachi is more out of habit anyway. Pity there isn't very much tech in the game since I was attemping a Blade Runner-esque landscape.

    I'll be playing Terraria in about an hour or so. I'll be hosting a multiplayer through Hamachi.

    Been playing it since three days with a friend. Single player is way too overwhelming and a lot harder. Got some decent items now and cool weapons and armor. Eater of Worlds isn't much of a challenge now. But need more Meteorite Ore... but since we built an Autobahn across the entire map, a meteor drops only a few blocks... so world hopping is the key.

    Really a time waster but so much fun in coop.

    PS: Fucking Goblin Army and their Goblin Sorcerers annoy the hell out of me.

    I bought this upon release and played it for one day. My friend continued to play it, but I couldn't stop comparing it to minecraft.

    Yeah it is basically a poor man's minecraft. But there's something about the side-scroll 2dness to it that I find more appealing. Plus some of the scenario maps are absolutely genius.

    i can see the similarities between the two but to really compare them or call it a "poor man's minecraft" is a bit of stretch. yes it's 2d as mentioned, which is a glaring difference which honestly i think is enough to distinguish the two. also terraria is much more combat focused than minecraft.
    i put many more hours into minecraft, but i still saw value in terraria. another game along these lines is cortex commander, but that is more destruction and less construction - still worth checking out.

    the way i see it minecraft is a creative game, a game for exploring. terraria is a combat game where exploring is secondary, and construction is a tool not a creative expression. at least that's how it was for me.

    I've put about 23 hours into this game in the last week and have been having a real blast. It's the first game in quite a while that I can play for more than 45 minutes in a stretch.

    It's a great game, I have 144hrs punched according to Steam. It has a lot of replay-ability and so much content. Once you beat the wall of flesh the game transforms and it becomes hard again.

    I've shown a few people my mushroom farm, but I figured I'd post it here.

    Must be a small world. You didn't have to go down far at all to reach the underworld. XD

    You just have to be at level depth underground to grow mushrooms, not reach the underworld. My house is around 290 feet above the underground.

    "Underground" is the word I was looking for. On large worlds, it's at about 1000 feet I think.

    I always do a similar ladder except I put water pipes on either side to duct water to just above the hell level where I can bring lava up to create obsidian.

    Dang, I just entered hard mode and am really getting my butt handed to me after many many hours of total domination. Even the Wall of Flesh wasn't a big deal. I'm going to have to rethink my choices of weapons and make some new ones.

    I played on hard mode (now medium) and losing everything upon death was a real downer. :(

    No, not the hard difficulty setting, hardmode refers to the stage the game enters after beating the Wall of Flesh - much harder enemies, new ore, items, and biomes.
