    [Closed] Terraria 1.3 - Server Rules & Sign Up



    Hello, hello, hello!

    I'm Krathor and I've taken control of this here post to give you all the details of RPS' community Terraria servers. That's right, we have our own servers following patch 1.3 and they're open to everyone to play.

    The first server (Red) has been up since the start of July, and since then we've been able to spread our fortresses across the land. But this is a huge world, and our prospectors have determined that we're yet to touch even 50% of it as of this post (22nd August). There's a massive land out there for you to plunder, with friends available to do it with. Even if you're just starting, there's a great bunch of people to help you get into the game and up to the current gear level easily.

    The second server (Blue) is newer, having launched on the 21st August. It has a bright future ahead, so go explore its huge world!

    Whether you're a treasure hunter, acorn farmer or simple explorer, there's room on both for everyone - providing you're nice and know how to respect others.

    How To Join

    Simple: Make a fresh character and post its name in this thread. Within a few days, you'll receive a PM to your forum account here on RPS with details of one of the servers, along with a personal username and password to give you build rights.

    After that, feel free to log in at any time (both servers are up pretty much 24/7) and do what you like... subject to a few rules.

    The Rules

    1) Pretty much all the same rules apply as on the forum, especially when it comes to interacting with others.

    2) Many people will already have their own homes started up, and could definitely find a place for you in them. Heck, I'm sure most people would appreciate any help in building - but please be mindful of other members; if they ask you to stop messing around in their house, then please respect their wishes. They're huge worlds and there's land enough for everyone.

    3) Please don't attempt any new bosses outside of the organised time of Sundays at 20:00 British (currently GMT+1). See the table below for a list of bosses we have already killed on each server, along with the one we are due to kill next. Note that after a boss has been killed by the server on a Sunday, feel free to farm it as you want. Limiting boss kills ensures that everyone stays on (roughly) the same level. Do not cheese content related to unbeaten bosses.

    4) Share loot, resources and knowledge with other people. We all come from different backgrounds and some folks may not have even touched Terraria prior to playing on the servers. Moreover, some people will only be able to play a couple of hours a week. It would be great if players simply shared what they didn't need, although be aware of people just using the servers to gear up.

    Ask For Help

    If you're ever stuck with something you're working on, keep getting killed by floating eyes at spawn, or don't know what to do next - ask for help. Simply pop something in chat, or pop on the RPS Mumble server for assistance.

    Of course, if you're really new to the game, you'll probably find solutions to specific problems over on the Wiki.

    Any Problems - Post Them Here

    We're all here to help each other, and that includes in this thread. Alternatively, contact one of the admins. Do this either in-game, or on the forum (even via PM).

    Bosses Killed So Far

    Red server has completed all of the game's content, and generally we do not put new players there unless they specifically ask to be.

    Blue server has a new schedule following Thursday 19th November, which can be found in this thread.

    Extras

    The servers are running on Expert Mode, as another way to curb ridiculous progression with so many people. Playing on this mode isn't impossible as a new player, but if you do find it difficult then ask for help (see above). Most folks will be on during EU evenings, especially Sunday nights for the new boss kills.

    Remember to post nice screenshots and you may find them in the monthly Community Update.

    I'd be up for taking a look again! I was about to stop subs on a creeperhost server, so could look and see if they have 1.3 server ready

    Edit: alas, they do not, as they run linux and tshock is not yet updated.

    I used to host a server for RPS a while back, but the laptop I used for that has been acting up lately. Dewi, is there any estimated timeframe for Linux Tshock?

    Oh by the way, that "expert mode" looks quite nice, for a multiplayer experience. Consider using it, if someone makes an RPS server :)

    Release date was supposedly yesterday, but appears not have been done yet. According to their twitter https://twitter.com/NyxStudios Saturday is looking likely. Then its a case for my host to push it to their control panel (it's not a rooted affair). I'll keep you updated

    I only played about 40 hours of Terraria in single player before the big updates, and news of this latest one made me think about giving MP a shot.

    How well does this game lend itself to a drop-in/drop-out experience?

    Not sure anyone knows, since it didn't have dedicated servers up until now so probably all MP play was organised, timed sessions... However, i suppose it'll be the same as Minecraft, which is to say i have no idea since i've never played Minecraft MP...

    Terraria has hade dedicated MP servers for quite a long time, it's just a different executable, so you need to know it's there (nothing in the gameplay client tells you so). It's just what you'd expect, the world goes on while you're away, it works perfectly for drop-in drop-out gameplay. There's a version of the dedicated server called TShock which has additional controls, like permissions, groups and other stuff to make player and world management possible.

    Cei has given me a poke about this and I have contacted our benevolent RPS overlords to see if we can get an official, dedicated server; we already have some resources on standby for this and Terraria seems like an ideal title to try it out.

    Zan, am I correct when I say you have previous map-making experience? How about you, Dewi?

    Multiplay has a 30% off limited time discount. It's 24.50p/m for a 32player(max) unbranded server. Now is the time lol.

    Do they not update upon release? It says the discount is to celebrate the 1.3 release so surely it would be ready for 1.3?

    Well Multiplay typically run their servers on Linux, and Terraria server or client does not run on linux. Unless theyre cracking out the Windows virtual machines...

    Besides I'm really interested to see what Krathor comes up with.

    Krathor: The last server was run from home by Zan, and he did a frickin' amazing job with some world editing for some story events he put together. Whether or not he'd be up for some similar launch shenanigans is another story. I'd be happy to help.

    Yeah, lets see what we can wangle with RPS' resources. Krathor and I will likely be the main server administrators, but certainly getting other people onboard for individual games would be good.

    Would this be friendly for people who

    (a) have never really managed to get anywhere with the singleplayer game due to general incompetence, and
    (b) who don't have much free time and would just pop in occasionally?

    Does the multiplayer differ in any significant way from the singleplayer?
