    Since I don't want it to get dynamited, no.

    There are something like 7000 dirt wall tiles used there.

    I'd say 'good work' since you have a knack for glazing over compliments.

    But, y'know. Good work. :)

    The top slopes more like a mushroom than a tree so I'm not actually that happy with it. But on the basis of being unable to see the top and bottom at the same time because it's so large I can't be bothered to modify it.

    Is it possible to grow those big mushrooms underground? The huge ones that are more like trees.

    I read somewhere that they don't ever grow back after you cut them down, and I have never seen one grow in any of my mushroom farms. I haven't seen anything I would consider definitive proof that it can't happen, but the rumor plus personal experience has led me to not do anything that would require growing new gigantic mushrooms.

    Seems like the kind of thing that might eventually be patched in, though.

    I've tried all sorts of ways to beat the system and grow a tree underground but nothing has worked. Including the new trees grown on corrupted land (and then purified). :(

    If your definition of underground includes the pure-dirt layer, dynamite/hammer away all the dirt wall in your area, grow trees, then replace the dirt wall.

    A moving/flying structure would be the best thing ever in this.

    Actually, about halfway through that sentence, I had an idea for a PvP mode. Remember the fortress battles in Rocket Slime? I think something that's somewhere between that and Scorched Earth could make for a very interesting mode of play for this.

    So how does this fair as a single player experience? Most of my friends are too console bound to care about a PC game or weren't into Minecraft as much as I was. Will I get bored by myself?

    The difference between SP and MP is basically whether you post screenshots of stuff or say "hey, come over here".

    Ugh. I really need more furniture. It's hard to outfit your tower when you can only stick the same 6 things in every room.

    Alright, so I am really having fun with this. The area around my tower has been explored and now I am working on a digging a deeper mineshaft.

    I have not messed with IP addresses and the such for a long time and was looking for some help with multiplayer. I have a friend I want to play with and was wondering what steps we needed to take to connect.

    I can mess with stuff on my router but he gets his through his dorm. Does that mean he should connect to me? What do I need to do to set this up?

    Thanks a bunch.

    Also, what is the best way for a newb to get to a floating island?

    Fonjo, I got multiplayer up and running last night. It was pretty easy, just have the host run ipconfig and check your outward ip-address, that will be the ip of the server. We used the default port (7777) without needing to mess with forwarding, I ran no firewalls.

    I'd say just try to host and send him the ip first, if you need to do port forwarding you'll probably have to host on your end because I doubt he'll be able to if he runs it from the dorm uplink.

    Ah, thanks Honk. Which is the outward? I Pv4? That is the one I tried, if it is a different one, I'll give it a shot.

    I really need to brush up on my basic networking.

    Yep, though it may list one local and one outward.

    If you don't get it to work, consider trying with Hamachi (free version works!). Hamachi is my go to when I run into network trouble. Very few games will work in LAN on my home network because I can't set it up correctly, but most work through Hamachi.

    I jumped back into this yesterday evening for a few minutes, I wanted to see which armour sets I had on my main world.

    Fast forward many hours to 3am in the morning............damn it Terraria, not again!

    At least I have all the armour sets and Rocket boots now! no goblin invasion yet though......maybe I'll jump on for a few minutes this evening, see if I can get one to spawn..................

    I would love if they Steam Cloud activate this.

    It not being Steam Cloud with the saves and worlds is both pretty tedious and highly exploitable (infinite materials/objects with copy paste worlds).

    I dig straight down until death.

    Seriously though, if you're just starting up then look around a little for a nice spot during the day and build a basic house there so you don't get eaten by zombies. That's how I start every new world but after that I just dig down until death.

    I make my starter house with a single room. Then build it out to at least seven rooms, one for each NPC, and one for my crafting and storage items.

    Then I will try to walk to both ends of the map and see the sights.

    Steam Cloud storage will not stop copy paste worlds. The Steam Cloud works as a backup, not as a principal storage system. A memory editor will do a better, faster job of changing inventory amounts.

    The other issue is that it's unlikely to ever happen given the size of the savefiles. All of the games I own that have cloud storage enabled have a maximum storage size of 100Mb, which is roughly the size of one large world and less than two medium worlds.
