The server has been taken down due to inactivity. If there is enough requests for it to be put back up I will definitely consider it, but as of the moment it is no longer running.

The TeamSpeak server is still running feel free to connect to it at:

  • Server address: shadowsquire.no-ip.org
  • Port: default
  • Server password: apple

############################################################################################################################################

ATTENTION: The server now runs on a Whitelist due to griefers. I've already added some of you that I'm more familiar with.

If you are NOT on the Whitelist, then PM me here on Giantbomb with either your character name, or IP address. (IP is preferred)

DO NOT post here with a character name or IP address, as I will completely ignore it as I will know you didn't bother reading this. (same goes for email. PMs ONLY!)

Hey guys, most of you already know about it, but for those who don't (and to make the details more accessable) I'm making this thread.

Connect to: shadowsquire.no-ip.org

Password: apple

Port: 7777 (subject to change later on)

I really didn't think this was needed with the Giantbomb community, but apparently it is. Here is a list of rules, you get caught breaking them, you get banned. Simple as that.

  1. Do not steal from other players
  2. Do not blow up/destroy/modify things that aren't your's without asking first.
  3. Do not grief the server/other players (i.e. Spamming dynamite at the spawn)
  4. No hacking
  5. While I don't mind swearing, please refrain from any racist or other offensive language that may offend other people.
  6. While not necessarily a rule, the attempted use of explosives now auto-kicks you from the server. If there is an uproar about this I'll re-enable the use of them, but for now they stay off.
  7. Spikes are now disabled because they really do nothing put piss people off.

Like I've said before and I'll say again, feel free to do whatever you want, just please don't grief or steal from other people.

If you run into any issues, either: (in order of how fast I'll likely notice the message)

  • Email me at shadowsquire@gmail.com
  • Add me on steam: _nephilim_
  • Message me here on Giantbomb

If any other details arise (or change), I'll be adding them here. And updating my little timestamp below.

As of 06/21/2011

Check out the old "Giantbomb 1.0" map here!

EDIT 08/05/2011: I just started up a TeamSpeak server to make it easier for everyone to play together. Feel free to hang out in the room whenever you want!

cool! 
 
I took a hook from the public treasury and left a whole stack of other goodies. I hope that was ok :D

#3 Posted by narkeeso (4 posts) -

Works great, hope you keep it running.

#4 Posted by Protonguy (305 posts) -

I'll jump on there this weekend for sure :). I'm wearing gold armour in my single player game but i seem to be at a bit of an impass so trooping around with some other people would be awesome.

This server just got hacked, that sucks

#6 Posted by mclakers (125 posts) -

the attack just  stopped

#7 Posted by Kraank (74 posts) -

That really sucked

#8 Edited by Dejkrigeren (384 posts) -

Since the server is in a kind of messed up state I made a temporary server.

spandaueren.myftp.biz

EDIT: Now that the original server is up my server is obsolete, I'll keep it running though.

#9 Posted by mclakers (125 posts) -

we need a password

#10 Edited by Shadowsquire (362 posts) -

@mclakers: @Dejkrigeren: What's wrong with the server? There doesn't appear to be anything wrong from my end?

EDIT: Nevermind. I see what happened. I'm going to change the port, and setup a rollback option for the maps. Hopefully this will stop that from happening again. But for now we have to deal with a new map. If I had caught it about half an hour earlier I could've fixed it, but now it's too late. So now theres a new map up and the port has been changed up at the top post.

EDIT EDIT: HAH! SCREW THAT! Found a day old copy of the world file I had on a usb drive! The world is back!

#11 Posted by mclakers (125 posts) -

sweet

#12 Posted by Nephrahim (1119 posts) -

Dang, it sucks that we got hacked, but now I kind of wish I had seen what happened. 
 
Anyone have the play by play?

#13 Posted by mclakers (125 posts) -

just a GIANTBOMB!!!!!!

@SamDrugbringer: I have no clue, but when I logged on basically the entire top half of the map seemed to be missing. But I got the old map back now, so... yay! =D

Here's a picture of what the before and after of the griefing for those who missed it. The white square with the S in it is where the spawn point was. (That isn't the full map)

Before
After
#15 Posted by intelix (17 posts) -

logged in and looked around. good work shadowsquire :)

#16 Edited by Shadowsquire (362 posts) -

@intelix: Thanks! lol take a look at the post above you. That's what happened to the map :P

#17 Posted by Nephrahim (1119 posts) -

Ouch. 
 
Well, I'll help rebuild soon, I've got my sweet nightmare pickaxe to burrow into the ground.  Muwahaha.

#18 Posted by Kraank (74 posts) -
@SamDrugbringer:  Stars were flying out of the sky and exploding people, and meteor type things were going thru the world. It looked like fireworks. 
 
The worst part was when he blew up all the land so when you died and spawned back you would just fall to your death over and over. I lost a lot of money lol

How did you take that picture? I just finished a castle yesterday and had to take multiple screen captures and stitch them together with photoshop. Here it is BTW. My epic Dragon Keep.

@McGhee_the_Insomniac: You have to have access to the map file, but you can find the tools on the terraira wiki here

Sick dragon btw!

Haha.  I never carry more then 1 on me anymore.  It's not that I die that often, I just dig such random tunnels I can NEVER find where my corpse ended up :)

Man, I'm so jealous.  I basically hobbled together a bunch of crappy wood huts way before I know what I Was doing.  Maybe one day I'll take the time to make at least a decent looking castle.

From playing earlier

#28 Posted by Nephrahim (1119 posts) -

I'm glad someone added that little pool.  I checked out the Hellevator, and it wasn't there at the time. 
 
Hello fall damage...

#29 Posted by Whizbang (103 posts) -

Looks like the server is getting griefed again. Some idiot put spikes everywhere and, even worse, destroyed my floating dong.

#30 Posted by digigb (22 posts) -

i cleaned up the spikes, made a flat run to the dungeon, and started on a tower on top

#31 Posted by Liber (648 posts) -

is this running on your computer ?

#32 Posted by Shadowsquire (362 posts) -

@Liber: No it's running on a server I use for media and games

#33 Posted by Shadowsquire (362 posts) -

@BadFeelingAboutThis: You have any idea who it was? If I can start getting names of these people I can ban them from the server

#34 Posted by Bloodgraiv3 (2712 posts) -

Finally this got made, hell yes i'll play.
#35 Posted by Enns (357 posts) -

This game is so addicting. Thanks for providing a server.

Having fun building and messing with water. Although some people were PVPing in the house next door and ruined the place.

I've a feeling the time I spent building is going to be wasted sooner or later. A lot of people gave me some cool items, so thanks fellas.

#36 Posted by markini6 (445 posts) -

Have played on the server a few times now, thank you so much for providing good place to play with fellow bombers

#37 Posted by KingRedWing (44 posts) -

Really enjoying playing on this server with the GiantBombers. If you need any help add me, my steam name is KingRedWing and I will help in whatever way I can.

#38 Posted by Enns (357 posts) -

So people nammed Ryan and Mr. White blew everything up.

If I keep playing on the server I think I'll just stick to a simple build and keep transfaring my valuables to offline.

#39 Posted by KingRedWing (44 posts) -

We got hacked again... At the spawn most of the blocks have been removed, apparently they didn't go far away from the spawn though.

#40 Posted by Nephrahim (1119 posts) -

Yup.  The poor main base got blown up.

Pretty sure it was Mr. White.

#42 Posted by Shadowsquire (362 posts) -

@KingRedWing: @SamDrugbringer: Fixing it now.

#43 Posted by Shadowsquire (362 posts) -

@Enns: Mr. White has been banned and Ryan is getting banned as soon as he logs in again.

#44 Posted by Moonshadow101 (559 posts) -

Just logged in and had a look around. Place is messed up. Maybe nuke the place and start over with a new map? Seems better than trying to salvage what's there now.

That Dragon castle is easily one of the most badass castles in the history of ever.
#46 Posted by mclakers (125 posts) -

Well Mr. White is still able to use the server. I was just on. and MR White is in there.

#47 Posted by Enns (357 posts) -

He didn't blow up player made places at least. I was surprised to see everything accounted for when I checked in this morning. Although he built a silly ladder on my roof, but I'm okay with that haha.

I really wish there was a way to regenerate the maps features while keeping stuff like structures intact. I want to discover stuff or take a dungeon on with others but everything has that feeling of a path taken already.

I kind of want to try to build an artificial dungeon using jungle blocks. Question is should I make it a place to farm, or a fun place to kill junk? Either way I find it relaxing building in this game so I'm hooked.

#48 Edited by Shadowsquire (362 posts) -

@mclakers: @Enns: Yeah I've realized the problem with Terraria's ban hammer, so what I've done is installed a mod called tMod that gives me a little more control over the server. I can now track names/ip addresses properly, and I've completely disabled the use of explosives (at least for the moment). I've also unbanned Mr.White and Ryan because their "griefing" seemed to be more of carelessness than anything. So with explosives off it shouldn't happen again. If it does, then it's permaban.

#49 Edited by superpope (129 posts) -

Just logged on to find my home 'remodelled' and looted of all valuables. Mr. White and Tavi were online using some sort of a mob spawn glitch. Pretty sure it was Mr. White who tore up my house as he was REALLY interested in it.

While I typed that first sentence Mr White killed me in my home with grenades and asked in chat "Who killed him?!"

I really don't think carelessness is to blame for Mr. Whites actions.

I know its not up to me, but I really don't want to play on a server with this guy.

#50 Edited by Shadowsquire (362 posts) -

@superpope He's banned as soon as I get home from work. Thanks.
