    Hey guys,

    So, the Terrarria 1.1 Patch is coming out on December 1st, and the christmas update is slated for the 15th...

    Soooooooooooooooooooooo

    I'm going to host a terrarria-a-thon, on December 17th (Saturday) and maybe the 18th, so that we can all play the new update(s) together, have fun, make fun of Seba, etc.

    Just some notes:
    I'll probably start the event around 9-10AM (look up your own conversions)
    We will be using the mumble. You don't need a headset to join, but you can listen it. You can get mumble here
    The server will be password protected, so I'll be in TF2Maps chat with it, and will be in the mumble. If you want it, just ask.
    You will need Terrarria, not a pirated copy, if you don't have it, your a fuzzybumblehead.

    What will we do:

    What I'm thinking for a "schedule" is:
    ~~A few hours of group exploring, gearing up, facing monsters, etc.
    ~~After, split into teams (dependent on people who are on) and do some PvP, this'll require some balancing of course. You would be allowed time to build bases, etc. Maybe we can invent a CTF gamemode or something.
    ~~once we're done with that, we can go back and do whatever we want.

    Questions for you!
    (Naturally, whatever comes of these questions are loose, we dont have to stick with the same thing the whole time)
    1. Do you want to start with fresh characters. (y/n)
    2. What size map do you want to start with?
    3. Is there anything specific you would like to do?
    4. Red, Green, Blue, Yellow?

    If you have suggestions, please, leave and discuss hear...

    If you are going to want to show up, say so, so I know how many people this server i'm making will take up... and if I'll be able to handle it.

    Additional Rules I'm adding for the event:
    The Event will start between 10am and 11am EST (Look it up if you don't know the timezones)
    You MUST start a new character.
    You MUST be IN our Mumble channel (You do not need to be able to talk, but you must be able to listen)
    You MUST have fun.

    ... you must make fun of Seba.

    Yes, I will still try and host that chess tourney

    I hads me a brainwave...

    If we were to do a CTF PvP thing, we could use the (what appear to be) armor stands that are coming, have each team with a different color armor (bronze/silver) and they have to grab it and run it back and place it on a returning armor stand or something.

    Just use the colored banners. They basically already look like flags.


    1. Yes, that is the only way to go. Starting with gear already is boring IMO
    2. LARGE
    3. Recreate a TF2 map*
    4. Cyan

    *as closely as 2D permits

    Banners might work, but you need a hammer to remove them iirc...

    This armor stand might not need that... I'll see what the update has in store for us when it comes out. We'll figure something out. If anything, we'll just use the minecraft way, Wool in chests.

    Here, have a timelapse of someone playing the 1.1 patch on a server for god knows how many hours


    You can also see some of the new stuff in here too (Glass windows in the back, potions that light up ore, etc)... The one thing I really like about this is that when they got to the corruption or the wanted to fight the eye, they built a "stage" to do so.... I think we should do something also like this...

    It probably won't happen, but we should totally not rush straight to hell if we are starting new characters. Don't worry, I'll be doing this event all day... and if it is successful, I'll do it on the 18th too.

    Am I to late for this?
    I love Terraria to death, and I'm finally getting internet in the house I moved to today! Lets do it on the weekend perhaps?

    HEY! GUESS WHAT!

    Tomorrow is the terrariariaiirairiaiiaia-a-thon-a-ma-dinger... We still dont know what we're doing, so we're going to wing it!

    I'll be annouceing it via tf2 annoucements (NOT EVENT, so there will NOT be a pop up)... when you see it, pop into steamchat or IRC and I will have the IP/password... this is so that we don't get random greifers.



    Also, if you grief, I will kick/ban/other form of something that removes you from the server.

    ...so don't grief

    Make sure to use the server host .exe found in your Terraria folder, not host and play. Trust me.

    Im completely ready to play for 30 hours straight, sleep for 5 hours, then go back to another run. I just hit my winter break and all I plan to do, other than seeing family, is to catch up on 5 months of missed gaming.

    I fear for my kidneys.

    So I suggest a large map, even with 3 people it's not hard to get to the other side from the opposite end and strip the world of its resources. I'm going team Red and anyone is willing to join me in my quest to build a massive fort. I'm gonna grab everything I need to setup my bed for spawning, then its off to find a nice location. Lets max the team sizes (depending on players) to three (So say a 3v3). I think a team vs team idea sounds fun, but what we're trying to do is going to be hard to setup. We can do an arena idea or a "destroy this object in the enemy base" kind of thing. Capture the Flag doesn't seem like it'll work, because I can just grab your flag, die, and still have it safely in my base when I respawn.

    Also heads up, when you generate the world tomorrow we're going to get snow biomes. They're permanent.

    EDIT: For a mic chat service, I'm fine with Mumble. Although if everyone is cool with Skype that would make me happy as it's the main thing I use, and I don't have Mumble installed or setup lol...

    I just discovered I cannot attend. Little late, I know, but I'm sure you can have fun without me.
