Autumnal Waterfall 43 – Terraria

And we’re back in terraria! Since last time, I’ve gotten a lot of stuff. Most of it is old, but I’ve pretty much finished Normal mode. My world spawned with Tin, Iron, Silver, Platinum and Corrution, so I got no pictures of the new Crimson Biome and the new Crimson boss (which is a replacement for Corruption in certain worlds). Well, that’s alright, I guess. It gives you something to look forward to.

Also, I can’t believe I forgot to mention one of the major new features last time. We now have a minimap! Gosh, I sued to be good with directions in Terraria, but now that a minimap has come up, I’ve relied on it too much. I forgot last time because I kept it off. It’s just too useful, though. I now have no mental map of my tunnel systems.

Autumnal Waterfall 42 – Terraria 1.2

Oh yeah, welcome to the new and improved Terraria! The long awaited (by me at least) 1.2 patch.

For those that don’t know, Terraria is a 2D action platformer. It has a  fully robust building, mining and world shaping system, similar to Minecraft. But a huge focus of the game is exploring out, getting better gear and defeating harder bosses. Of course, you’re free to build whatever you like, though it lacks an official creative mode due to how much emphasis is placed on progressing through the game. There’s always mods for that.

And now, the 1.2 patch has been released! It is a free patch that nearly doubles the content in the game. 4 new bosses, a bunch of new npcs, totally new biomes and lots of new items!

Get Terraria at Steam.

Note that Multiplayer is still bugger hard to set up for me. *sigh*

Here, I will go through some of the improvements as well as a new biome. So, step into Terraria.

Rumors of the Guide’s death were greatly exaggerated.

As you can see, Terrari...
