    Yeah, the lighting changes are actually much more of a bother than the difficulty changes. I wanted a blazing inferno again, just add "simplified lighting" to the options that turns off most of the dynamic lights and be done with catering to the netbook crowd. People with powerful gaming rigs have spent money on them precisely because they want to handle 10 million dynamic lights without breaking a sweat.

    It took me nearly 4 hours to build that starter house. Yay corruption.

    Try saving that world and loading it in a multiplayer game (or loading it as single player if you built it in multi).

    For some reason, whether the world is online or not can affect the proper drawing of world boundaries. I mined a boatload of Hellstone exploiting a world like that.

    Terraria Episode 1.0.6: "Darkness falls".

    Something I read elsewhere that's apparently not in the patch notes: you can't place stone or dirt inside lava anymore. In other words, no replacing it for safety reasons or so that you can mine through it. Not sure if this is also true for water.
    Water remains the same but it seems that now the only block type that can "kill" lava is sand. Still you can't put in directly inside the lava, you must make it drop inside it.

    Is there a server which is essentially almost at the start? I'd like to start another character, but jumping to a developed world wouldn't be very fun, as working through Copper-Iron-Etc. would be something I'd like to do at the moment. Even better if other people would want to do that.

    Do I buy this game? I wish I had when it was super cheap for summer, but I'm not sure if $5 does it for me...

    I will, however, gladly gift a copy of Sanctum in exchange for a terraria if anyone should like.

    Today I learned that falling from a massive height onto a slime will not break your fall when you bounce off it and hit the ground. Also I don't know if they fiddled with the shadow orb spawn mechanics or what, but I had about dozen of them under the ground in one big wide tunnel, rather than in the occasionally chasm. Suits me fine, I know where they all are now.

    I got my sister-in-law to come join my brother and my wife and I on a server last night. Off to a good start, I think.
    I like that you can make statues and banners. And tiki torches. Makes the entrances to our mountain bunker castle base look cool. I also learned about the slimes not breaking fall damage. The hard way.

    After starting a completely new guy, I have to say, I REALLY miss my molten/nightmare items. Picking and axing and hammering is so slow now! Also it's kind of nice that the enemies do more damage now. Makes you feel more vulnerable. Ive taken to actually running away from some fights rather than just soaking up the damage knowing that I had more health than they do.

    Also, FUCK BATS. ALL OF THEM.

    I bought this game yesterday, it's really good. I found a ring of regeneration down in a gold chest in the caves, which I like :)

    I think it would be awesome if in the long term you could start training up a squad of guys to help defend the homestead. Kit them out with items and bows and whatnot.

    A mercenary NPC would be pretty sweet. You could buy x amount of mans at a time, and can spend money to upgrade them or something, but once they die they dont respawn like regular NPCs. You have to rebuy them

    Im trying to decide if I want to start a fresh character and world now or wait for the more significant 1.1 update (presumably more biomes and such). I'm leaning towards waiting before starting completely fresh, though I may import my current character to a new world in the meantime.

    Exactly, they already have mechanisms in place where hoards of monsters start attacking you. It would only make sense for you to start being able to fight back.

    Okay I need help. I've gotten to the part where there are fire imps, helbats, and bone worms. I have all gold items equipped, but I can't break anything down there. I feel like I went ahead too far... As that place is literally raping me and my patience.

    You dug too deep.
    Seriously though, you really did. You've reached hell and you'll need some better equipment to survive and mine down there. The next best step after gold is finding some corruption and going wild on those Shadow Orbs. You'll want to pack up on Dynamite to break through the Ebonstone, as I'm not sure you can mine it with a gold pickaxe. The orbs will give a few nice items, as well as eventually cause a meteorite to fall. With meteorite and demonite (which you can get from bosses), you'll have the equipment you need to mine down in hell. There's also the jungle and the dungeon, mind you, which you might want to visit in between.

    You'll want to kill the Eye of Cthulu first. That will unlock the next NPC who sells an item to help get to shadow orbs without dynamite.

    I never really used the minishark before I got it on my latest new character and map and never really knew just how much fun it was. It blows through ammo so so fast, but 1000 rounds only costs 70 silver so that's not a problem at all. I had a hell of a great time taking on the Eater of Worlds deep underground in this pretty wide tunnel. Having a dedicated key for the grappling hook makes it 10 times better than it was.

    Seems 1.0.6.1 is coming out next week to fix a few new bugs. Here's the list thus far, copy/paste from Terraria forums:
    ● Fixed a bug that would cause chests to contain stacks of empty item.
    ● The crafting list now correctly updates after using the container loot buttons.
    ● The direction bathtubs face when placed is now correctly sent to the server. This prevents bathtub duplication issues.
    ● Smashing Obsidian Walls no longer gives Obsidian Ore.
    ● Walls that are automatically placed to fill small gaps are now correctly taken from the player’s inventory.
    ● Fixed a bug that causes Green Slimes to get stuck in the ground and start sinking.
    ● Player ghosts no longer move when typing.
    ● Fixed a bug that would cause mana to sometimes not regenerate when the player has 0 mana.
    ● Slimes no longer chase the player in water when they are not in aggresive mode.
    ● Lesser Restoration Potions and Restoration Potions now only heal for 50/100 life and 50/100 mana.
    ● Lesser Mana Potions and Mana Potions now only restore 50/100 mana.
    ● Changed the way the value of stacked items is rounded to fix selling/buyback inconsistencies.
    ● Some items can now again be placed in lava, this includes clay pots and fire blossom seeds.
    ● Fixed a bug that would cause shadow orbs to me smashed during world generation. This was causing meteors to start spawning before the player is at the appropriate gear level.
    ● Another reason for this post is to prevent us from getting 500 bug reports about things we;ve already fixed. :p

    Also, the following ARE NOT consider bugs and are working as intended. To note, the last changelog did not list every single change made to balance that happened, so many people are reporting changes that happened assuming they are bugs. Ill be updating that changelog (here on TO) as well as I come accross important enough changes that we forgot to mention to list in there.

    Not Bugs

    ● Flamelash now only hits once.
    ● Floating Island chests being locked.
    ● Cobwebs breaking after a moment of being stuck in them.

    Locked chests? The more I hear about 1.06, the less I'm feeling like going back to play more

    There are a lot of undocumented changes; for example: the entire jungle is worlds easier now. The monsters don't have hundreds of HP, Snatchers and ManEaters are drawn in front of blocks, the bug where Stingers could enter water was fixed, and the AI of all flying monsters was improved to stop endless wall-hugging. Be sure to bring a few stacks of throwing weapons with you and it 's really a cakewalk now. Spike balls from Goblins are particularly nasty, as even after they stop moving they act like caltrops and keep on damaging monsters.

    Locked chests are to help make the game progression less broken. All chests are not locked. Chests in the Underworld (aka "Hell") and on Floating Islands are locked, and meant to be visited after entering the dungeon. You can find keys randomly in pots (yes, the random stoneware pots), and a special key in the dungeon.

    If you don't feel like dealing with the new dungeon stuff, the doubled backwall-teardown speed means that you can very easily raid the dungeon while dealing with normal badguys for the depth. You only count as being in the "dungeon" if you are standing in front of a 2x3 patch of dungeon wall. There really is no fix for this which would still allow players to take the dungeon's blocks and walls, so this is pretty much a permanent easy way to raid the dungeon: dismantle it.

    Overall I feel 1.0.6 made the game easier and more fun to play. My main gripes are with the lighting. I liked the blazing inferno Underworld, the Orb of Light is now nearly worthless, and it's just wrong to completely remove all lighting effects from the Meteor and Molten armors. If nothing else they should keep your character visible in the dark, even if they don't light the environment. On the other hand we just got a number of nice, decorative light sources apart from torches and glowsticks (which were buffed with a lot more light), and Shine Potions are pretty easy to make. I'm sure we can also expect a lot more fun light sources in 1.1, including light-producing or light-enabling backwalls such as windows.

    I assume the locked floating island chests are to prevent people from loading up a mapper program and getting high level gear right at the beginning, which seems fair enough.

    I'm a bit surprised that they reduced the HP and defense of the bosses again. I assume this is to make up for not being able to chug health potions every 10 seconds. Still it makes the boss fights trivial once you get a minishark.

    The Old Man told me I was too weak to try breaking the curse, but using an ironskin and regeneraton potion, I didn't even need to use any health potions against Skeletron.
