looks great! I'd add a bit of "foundation" below the pillars on the right though, just to make them look a bit more secure than being on grass
Yeah that makes it look better, thanks!
Also if you want a cool wooden pillar look there's the Wooden Beam block. You don't even have to actuate it and imo it looks really good.
I love beans, I usually use em to put my npc homes above the ground so they don't look like they're floating. Roughly 10-15 high, about 10 - 20 blocks apart.
Keeps em away from the ground so while they're still happy in their biomes, they are safe from most nighttime monsters and event enemies.
Beans are great. Good side dish. Make my chili good.
Damn auto correct. I'll leave it
Lmao. I wouldn't have seen it if not for the massive of pot of chili I made last night
Waiting for the heathens from Texas to say beans don't belong in chili
Also you should give some texture to the purple roof. The Red ones are really nice, because they are kind of flat, but the purple one looks kind of like one giant block on the tower. Maybe try something like only hammering every other border-block which might make the roof look a little more exciting.
Personal oppinion though :)
The rest of the desing looks really cool.
Perhaps add an attic for more decorations/chest space?
It would look really cool if you put the blocks into the background with actuators and then put some old, creepy chests in there for potions and ingredients storage. Maybe crimson chests (they have an eye on it If I'm not mistaking)
Edit: It's called Flesh Chest (Crimson) and Lesion Chest (Corruption)
I'm the opposite, I used to build individual decorated house for each npc (back when happiness wasn't a thing) but now it's wooden box all the way lol.
The boxes are super convenient, especially in modded because the amount of npc’s in some mods is insane lol
Honestly I just build a box house to get them to move in, then they get little biome-specific houses once I can spare time
Yeah in modded I’ve been using the “start with base” mod because I do NOT want to be spending all my time building houses for 30+ NPCs
Why did I never think to mod terraria?
Do the mods work in multiplayer?
Yup, just search tmodloader on steam and use the workshop to download mods. If there’s anything u don’t know how to work u can always reply to this comment
Thanks fam. I appreciate it
Depends on them, but generally yes. Thorium is pretty multiplayer compatible iirc
Nice I'll check it out
Its not on 1.4 tmodloader yet iirc so you would need to downgrade your tmodloader
I also recommend doing Calamity mod with friends. It makes a lot of the boss fights easier and the progression is really good.
Yea they work with friends I just played through the entirety of the calamity mod, one of the most popular mods that adds many new biomes, items, weapons, and bosses, with one of my friends in multiplayer and it was mostly smooth sailing. There are a few bosses that are a little buggy in multiplayer but not too bad
Wood box supremacy!!💪😎💯🔥
If done right even a wooden box will look really good.
I build a mix, most of my houses are simple box houses, but I arrange them and add furniture to make them at least moderately visually appealing. i am no interior decorator or master builder, but I like messing around from time to time so all my houses aren't samey and boring.
I do both
Maybe add something small to the other side of the tower, like another building, so it doesn't look so... flimsy.
Good idea, thanks uu
Maybe a well that leads into a hellavator if you need an idea for any simple builds
Add an outhouse.
an outhouse is a must in this day and age, you know what I mean
Remove detail, shape into box, replace with wood
How terraria was supposed to be played, with npcs in boxes as small as possible all lined up at spawn. True design talent aha
Incorrect, no talent is required. The box is beautiful enough as it stands, empty, and dry. It is void of all meaning other than usability and function, which leaves no room for errors in taste and style. Be true to yourself and to that of the box.
You have two red roofs and a purple roof. Why not pink-purple-blue?
Probably did it because the purple on the top of the tower makes it look like a tower for an alchemist or a wizard or something like that with the tinkerer at the top, which honestly I think the tower needs the purple
i agree! color code the roofs with the bi flag!
Cbt basement when?
It just arrived in the mail :)
My place, tonight.
Cool (retrowave?) Flag
Thanks, but it’s a bisexual flag aha
I screwed up
No you didn’t you’re fine. Bisexual flag does look a little retrowaveish
Retrowave is an inherently bi genre.
?? I don’t think it’s fair to restrict that to one sexuality.
im claiming it for myself. none of you can like retrowave.
Ya, it does.
Too late, the flag now represents retrowavesexual
Ah good, everything stays the same then
You should look up how some people make 2d stationary flags look like they're waving and apply it to your build.
Looks like a floating wall as it stands but could be made to look like it's waving in the wind.
Ha, gay (we share a flag)
One of us
Very very nice
Less of an "improvement", and more of a "fix", you've got this weird thing going on with the right side of the purple roof where it gets to the little corner at the bottom right of it. It doesn't match the left side of that roof.
~~I think it can be fixed by removing one "layer" of the sloped roof on the right. Then the bottom edge of the slant should line up at the corner the same way the left side does. If you need me to elaborate or explain it another way, just let me know!~~
Omg now that I see it it’s so distracting thanks for pointing it out :)
No problem, but I realize my "fix" was wrong.
I think you just need to replace that weirdly shaped block with a square Bock, and put a slanted block on top of it, and that's it!
Make the flag wave!
Are you saying that the flag is "straight"?
Yh that will make it look really cool, thanks :)
This is not r/vexillologycirclejerk
Flags that have the same sort of physics as kites would be pretty cool.
Time to look at the comment section 🍿
Ppl really do suck sometimes
bro whats the country?
Bisexual country :)
The cutest people live there
Sneaking suspicion you might be bisexual
What gave it away?? 😳😳
I am just that good at guessing!
Idk, it looks like it’s leaning both ways but other than that it looks really good
This is the best comment by far aha ❤️
If I had s nickel for every time someone made posts with that exact title I'd probably be able to buy relogic and get them to make otherworld
Make the rooves match the pattern of that flag!
Top one pink, middle one violet, bottom one blue.
the problem here is the bi flag, it just really really needs to be replaced >!with a bigger bi flag!<
As a bisexual myself, I agree with this comment.
Make some stone foundations for the tower with a wooden bit that sorta makes an entrance maybe?
Make the tower have a whole foundation. Aka add walls down there, this looks instable as fuck for a tower. Otherwise really nice
Ya bro you got the
C O I N B O O T
Every house needs a coin boot, standard interior design 101
I gotta get a C O I N B O O T too then
I love it I’m gonna steal it also your character kinda reminds me of Bridget lol
Omg yes that’s who I’m trying to be, I’m doing yo-yo only run too
I knew it that’s amazing also
My characters name is literally brisket lmao
Representing the best guilty gear character ❤️❤️
Become Ultra Bisexual.
Its the same as Bisexual but it sounds cooler.
The flag is the bisexual flag but with a small, stretched out tony hawk in a corner
Yo, have you heard about Tony's pet crocodillian who writes stories?
Tony Hawk's Prose Gator
Perhaps try to add some texture to the brick walls by replacing the stone bricks with palladium pillars in alternating rows (painted Gray of course)
It’s really good, but I’m also bi so I may be a bit biased lmao
Heh. Heh. *Bi*ased. Heh
Take my upvote and get out
What country is that?
Jk great build btw I am also trying to better my building
I’d say, towers are usually pretty heavy, and therefore would be the one part of the building you wouldn’t put on a overhang on stilts. If anything, I’d make the foundation of the tower thicker than the foundation for the rest of the house
Main thing you need to remember is to have logic and realism involved, despite being an unrealistic game
Build wooden rectangle
Not trying to call you out or anything here, but did you use some like “how to not just make a wooden box” YouTube video when you made this? Because I did on the last play through that I got really into, and my house had a similar structure with the different rooms on the left and the big tower on the right (I think I have a post about it on my profile somewhere). It’s really cool to see this since it looks somewhat familiar but at the same time so much different
Look fucking gorgeous to me but but I’m not great builder so my opinion is a little invalid here
By making it a stone rectangle
AUTOMATED LAVA AND ARROW TRAP DEFENSES FOR MAXIMUM BLOOD MOON SLAUGHTER
FUCK YEAH BI FLAG WOOOOO
Damn so many [removed by moderator] messages
All because a flag lmao
Yh I was kind of expecting the community to be better tbh, but there was still a lot of nice comments giving me actual advice
You would expect the people with all the empress of light loot to not be homophobic lol
Or there's a potion that's literally called the Transgender Potion that has the trans color scheme on the sprite.
Ayy bi terrarian gang
Well... uh... it's ok.. but nobody... uh... would ever build a tower on top of trestles. Amateur mistake bro.
Yeah I see what you mean, thank you for the honest advice :)
Make a room to the right of the tower and move the pillars there, then connect the tower to the floor. (This just my opinion though, if you like the tower with pillars then keep it.)
Also get rid of the bi flag >!and replace it with a wavy bi flag!!<
had us in the first half not gonna lie
great flag, nice use of sails
Its lopsided, add a room to ðe right on ðe ground
Free þorns for everyone
Þorn for all!
Make the tower pointy and put the flag on top
You had me in the first half ngl
Or now little flags on each side with a lil angle
Clearing the hallow
I love it!!
Look really good.
In my opinion the supporting stonewall pillars inside should extend all the way to the floor over the cobblewood wall.
Also thicker pillars and a porch/foundation for the tower. I recommend using actuated blocks in combination walls/beams/pillars since you can then make your thick pillars smooth.
You could always use a cellar, or even a dungeon! Also a stable or other small room on the other side of the tower would look really good.
Making the top of the tower spiked and changing the room at the top of the tower to have a sort of inwards rounded spike ceiling to match.
This would decrease the clunky feeling of the tower roof.
The roof could use some more shape and details, but it looks great! (what is it about the "first non box build" posts? I've seen so many this week hahah)
3+1+3+0=7 out of 10
Looks a little.. uneven.
1. Maybe remove the supports
2. Could add even more and add another building as a bonus
I don’t fully remember but if you are able to, maybe have the two armor stands on the right facing towards the ones on the left?
Some water feature, always nice
I often love a little underground part to my builds and also love a little garden that's like a few floors up for the NPC's to enjoy
I would add some more grey brick on the bottom right, as well as something under the pillars on that side (also nice flag :) )
Fix the top right corner of your roof bro it's killing me lol
Windows and planter boxes.
A fountain on the right side. And a well.
Fireplace, chimney, smoke.
Foundation. Basement. Dungeon. Dark.
Where's the church? Temple, worship location? Could always be an atheist town...
Add those, and an inn area... And you've got an entire village.
Good sense of design overall. Keep at it. Decent enough build. 👍
*Edit* hey, and a blacksmith area... You could also build a small stables under the tower... And once you unlock the wizard, add a narrow tower to his chambers... 😄 Lots of ideas.
it looks great, especially for a first build! some more support for the tower would look good as well as possibly adding some wave to the flag, although making wavy flags can get a bit messy sometimes.
What country is that?
Damn, nice indecisive house bro
Build a wooden rectangle around it
I’ve never seen a mid house on here. Everyone is like here is my highly efficient shoebox, or here’s my mansion.
If it makes you feel any better, the rest of the world is just wood boxes lol. I was just doing something to pass the time
Your stuff looks great, especially the spiral stairs
Man, Ive been playing since 1.2 mobile and I still build god damn box houses. Fun fact, whenever I try not to they turn out like shit
i think it looks great! Btw, i have a question. What is the item for the flag? sorry for my bad english haha
If I remember correctly there is a sail tile you can buy...
From the Pirate I believe
Ebonstone bricks + palladium column painted Gray is a great mediaeval wall choice, try it out. Also. Get use to paint, it's actually possibly the greatest addition to building
Looks great! I haven’t seen anyone else say this so my suggestion is to give the flag more depth by sorta zig zagging it, idk it’s hard to explain. But it’s to make the flag look like it’s waving
Everything looks great, but the roof is a little wacky
cant wait to see this post be locked in a hour
I like it! Instead of the pillars on the left underneath your tower, you could have almost a sort of outdoor smiting area with wood panel background mixed with stone to give it sort of industrial look to it. Just my two cents 😊
That’s not a bad idea, thanks :)
Idk, looks like you're getting bi pretty well
Bi pride flag nice! Anyways I'd say this build is absolutely lovely and the only realy thing I would do is add little specks of imperfections. For example, paint ebonwood brown and speckle it into the wood to make it look more patchwork. Or find some brick to speck in with the grey bricks to make them feel less uniform. Little things like that add so much character.
But this build is utterly fantastic. I just wanted you to know that this is a great build so don't let my tiny criticism seem like I think it sucks! It's wonderful! <3
Change the flag to polska🇵🇱💪❤️
what flag is that? im bad at geography but even then i cant think of what it is
The bisexual flag. Fun fact, the only national flags with purple in them are Nicaragua and Dominica, which would clue you in that it isn’t a national flag if u knew that silly fact lol :). Unless u were just joking then I’m just stupid lol
Hey we're from the same country
what is that country and why is everyone from it so fucking awesome
Add more bi flags that'll improve it
It really amazing!! I really love the bi flag :3
What did you make the bi flag out of? Asking for a friend of course
Sail, which the pirate npc sells
Love the BI flag.
ADD MORE FLAGS! From a fellow r/vexillology enjoyer.
why'd this get downvoted?
What's the flag made of? (Except bisexuality of course)
Sail, which is sold by the pirate npc
Some people getting really edgy about your bi flag. Good for you. I love it.
Change the flag. It must be BIGGER
That looks better then anything I could ever make lmao
Love the flag, coming from a fellow bisexual
Yoooo, Bi Flag
more pride flags
YOO BI FLAG
Love the flag :)
BISEXUAL TERRARIAN !! Banger i should also incorporate that into my builds
Man, looks like some people are going around and downvoting all the bi-related comments, huh
I love the bi flag!!
larger bi flag on top of the tower
add a cool little epic skeleton to the flag to make it more awesome 💗💜💙
More flags. Make it gayer.
the house is bisexual? good for the house I guess
