Disclaimer (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Disclaimer (open) Disclaimer (close) First off, before I begin, let me clarify a very fine point. I am not the original developer of Buildaria. Due to limitations in time the original developer has stated he will not be able to give Buildaria the attention that it needs. Because of this he has given me permission to take over it's development. Due to this change, a new thread was warranted. The previous thread can be found here. Note: Buildaria currently does not work with the 1.3 update of Terraria. Read the updated readme file on the GitHub page for an alternative. If you're interested in forking the project and taking over, contact me. There's some easy stipulations. Current Version: 1.8.5 Download If you are having issues with launching Buildaria, please read this: If you are using the Terraria Game Launcher, you need to create a .gli file. If you are using v1.8.5 or higher of Buildaria a working .gli file has been provided. If you are using a lower version you need to create a new .gli file (just click the "Create .gli" button and locate Buildaria.exe). If you are not using the Terraria Game Launcher the only method found is to uninstall and reinstall Terraria and Buildaria. ----------------- A wiki article on the wikia version of the Terraria wiki (whoa) about Buildaria can be gawked at here! It contains everything already in this thread, but hey, every little bit of publication is nice. If you are upgrading from 1.6.1 or lower you need to remove your Inventories.xml file otherwise you will have missing items! What is Buildaria? Buildaria is a Terraria mod (oooh!) that is geared towards map builders. It will assist you in creating adventure maps or in constructing your epic creation that you just don't have time to build normally. Why should I use Buildaria over another map editor or instead of doing it by hand? I don't know? Seriously, it's personal preference, really. TEdit is a great tool and will allow you to change things on a larger scale faster, but Buildaria allows you to fine tune things as you go. Couldn't I just use Buildaria to load up a character or map with a bunch of items and then play normally? I guess you could, but that's your deal. If you want to kill the game for yourself that is on your hands. Can't I use this to grief a multiplayer server? Steps have been taken to disable Buildaria features on a multiplayer server. Buildaria doesn't have [insert item here]! Wtf?! First off, make sure that you are using the most recent version of Buildaria. If you have upgraded and an item has been added you will need to remove your Inventories.xml file for it to show up in your inventory. If it's still not there tell me on GitHub or in this thread and I'll get it added to the next release. What are the controls? Features? How old is Bigfoot? The first two questions can be answered in the readme file or by viewing the below post. The latter question is not relevant; stop asking me. What about configuration? Can I customize the defaults? Chat colors? Yes, you certainly can. If you run Buildaria at anytime after you upgrade to 1.7.2 or higher it will generate a configuration file called BuildariaConfig.xml in the same directory that you have Buildaria located in. Follow the formats already used and you can change things to suit your needs. What if you move more things to the configuration file? How will my configuration file get updated to have these included? In short, it won't. If you want the new settings to be included you will either have to generate a new file (simply delete the old and run Buildaria again) or add them yourself. I have plans, once more things are in the config file, to throw together a small app that will allow you to more easily utilize the config file. This app will add any new settings if you don't already have them. If the new settings don't get auto-added, how will they work? All settings, regardless of them being in your configuration file or not, have built in defaults. If you miss something in your config file Buildaria will use it's core-default setting. So.. no more toggle-able in-game settings? Yes, they still exist and work exactly like they did before. Can I see what has changed in each version? Everything before 1.7 is undocumented. Everything after I took the project over can be read here. I have this really awesome idea! Will you add it?! I'll do my best! Throw your idea up on the issue tracker or in this thread and I'll see what I can do! What about bugs? I think I have one! Put them in the same place. I know how to code! I want to help you out, what do I need to do to be most beneficial? Create a GitHub account. Fork the project. Make changes as you see fit. Send a pull request with all the changes you want added. If you plan on making changes that you do not want sent it's a good idea to make a secondary branch for either your edits or for what you want sent over. GitHub has many useful help documents on how to do a lot of things. If you can't figure something out ask me and I'll do my best to help you!
