Terraria Server Suggestion Box

Post by Stevo » Tue Jul 07, 2015 11:38 am

Since the other thread has server feedback mixed with a lot of gameplay discussion, I'm making a dedicated server suggestion thread. Post any changes to server settings you'd like to see when it becomes a real Ville server.

Server Details:
IP: 66.240.202.11
Pass: villuns

I'll keep this post updated with suggestions.
  • Switch to Expert mode in the future

I think this boils down to, do we want to restart the server on expert mode or not.

I say, yes personally.

Yes to expert, though using new characters on that isn't gonna work most of the time....

Well maybe we should wait till everyone who's new is geared up to Molton armor (pre-hard mode stuff) before making the transition?

It can be done, you just have to take your time. Maybe let this roll for a bit, then pick a day in the near future to switch, people can grab what they need?

I made an Expert world with a brand new character; it's tough but manageable.

I say we let the current one exist until August 1st and then reroll an Expert World.

Question for Stevo - Can we roll Terraria in with the Minecraft Forum?

I'm down with any or all of this.

If we all start together as new characters we should be able to handle ourselves I'd think. Just have to approach it with group dynamics in mind, and share gear to facilitate peoples' specialties and such, MMO style. August 1st is a Saturday - might be nice to do it the 31st so we have Friday night to play, but that general time period sounds great.

It appears regular players can't use summoning items to summon bosses. I wasn't able to summon the Brain of Chulultu using a Bloody spine yesterday.

Player privileges should be looked at. It's a private server where the password to get in is only known by forum regulars who've happened upon the thread. There are some inconveniences I've run into. Non-admins can't spawn bosses which hurts farming. Since you can craft every boss drop except for Plantera I don't really see an issue and many bosses have more than one drop that would be worth farming. Plantera in particular has a 1/50 weapon that I still haven't even seen.

Non-admins also cannot rearrange the NPCs and where they live. Some NPCs have different items to sell if they live in different biomes, such as the Witch Doctor having special accessories when she lives in the Jungle. It would also help if the shelter would have to be rebuilt or if NPCs keep making their homes in our workshops.

One other thing, when I logged in my uber character, the game froze me in place (the frozen debuff) until I removed some Fallen Stars from my inventory. It penalized me for having more than 99, despite the fact that Fallen Stars stack to 100 and are used as ammo for a specific weapon. It's not like I was cheating but an item restriction like that is bad business if you ask me.

This is hard to be cool and suave while being informative at the same time. Goddamn my coolness.
In my experience, common sense isn't too common.

I'm taking a look through the TShock guidebook now to see if this is something I can resolve with in-game commands. Definitely want to get rid of those limitations!

--edit--

Ok, I think I found the commands that adjust those things. I've adjusted the user groups - please let me know if problems persist!

Thanks for figuring this stuff out, Boss. I have no idea what's going on. :lol:

You bet! The system is slightly arcane, but simple enough in principle once I realized what was going on :-P It's a lot like the old DayZ admin interface. Should be good now!

I tested this out the other day and I could not get my stars to stack to 100. I have 3 stacks of 99 but not one of them can get to 100.
