Make A character in Terraria
To start with Terraria first thing you need to build a character. Here you will get the following body parts to create and customize your character.
- Hair (hairstyle, hair color)
- Eyes (eye color)
- Skin (skin color)
- Clothes (Apparel)
- Male / Female (Gender)
- Softcore / Mediumcore / Hardcore (Death penalty)
Now what is Softcore, Mediumcore, Hardcore
Softcore is the default setting. It drops half of your money at the time of death. If you deposit it in somewhere. It will not be dropped. It is a good idea to select this for the first time playing and in most cases if not binding.
Mediumcore drops all items including accessories at the time of death. This game has a very strong influence on the degree of freedom of action by items. Because opportunities for many enemies to die are increased considerably as the game progresses. It is extremely troublesome to choose easily from standards such as Minecraft.
Hardcore can not be revived at the time of death. The character data itself is deleted as it is. It is no longer a kind of tie-up play, it will be very difficult to enjoy this mode from the beginner’s state.
No matter how difficult it is selected, there is no change in the appearance of enemies or items during the game. Softcore can enjoy all the elements in the game. Money and items that have been dropped can be collected at the point of death after resurrection.
However, in the case of death in a lava zone the dropped money or items including the accessories may melt. In the case of multiplayer, the dropped items mix with those of other players. You are supposed to be taken away by the player who came to the place.
When you are done, click Create and complete the name by entering its name. Let’s move on to the world after the character creation is over.
Make the world in Terraria
After choosing a character, next step is to make a world to be adventurous. The setting item here is only to select the size of the world from Small / Medium / Large. Since the topography etc. are created at random when creating, there is no same world as one.
Moreover, this game is independent of world data and character data. It is also possible to hang a couple of worlds with one character, or reclaim one world with multiple characters.
Also, even for maps created for Single Player. You can invite friends if you choose when hosting Multi Player.
- Even Small has enough size for play alone. It should have various topographies and environments. As the depletion of resources is almost impossible. This is recommended for first time playing or architectural purposes.
- Medium is over twice the size of Small. The topography and environment are correspondingly larger and the number is increasing. Although it may be hard to move somewhat in the first play. It is perfect for players who want voluminous adventure without suffering it.
- Large is four times as large as the size of Small, and it is set for multi-player of a large number. There is a possibility that the traveling time may be lengthened when playing by one person. So it is not too late even after becoming unsatisfied with Medium. Of course the load on the PC will also increase.
Landscape in Terraria
The world which is completely different from the world of this image should surely spread. Its basically a moderate flat land is to be the starting point of the game. The starting point is usually a bright forest covered with green grass. But occasionally it may be in the middle of the snow field.
In extremely rare cases, luck may start with unclean land. Where purple grass spreads and crimson ground where red grass spreads. Then the difficulty level of the early stage jumps up. So in the case of beginners, It may be safe to recreate it.
When you come to this world first thing you should do is adventuring around and digging the ground is important. It is also important to build a home base. Even if the sun sets and surrounded by ferocious monsters. If you have a house you can reassure the night with confidence.
