'Block House' is in TerrariaHelps newest Top 10 Houses in Terraria!

Check out the newest video of TerrariaHelp over at his youtube channel !

-> Top 10 Houses In Terraria [Terraria 1.3 Top 10 Builds] <-

The Houses you will see are all beautiful. It is an honor that one of my builds is in this Top10!

I dont think it deserves the place though.

I have a small laggy Clip with soundnoise that was a test for obs/streaming. Here it is celebrating being in the Top10

Some recommendations on what to make furniture out of...

RobinVerhulstZ asked on reddit: Need some recommendations on what to make castle furnitrue and stairs out of...

When i search for fitting furniture i always take a look at a picture like this

out of this thread: "Model homes, updated for!" by fyrenwater

Remember that you can paint the furniture so it matches the style of your build. For help with painting take a look at this thread: "A Guide To Painting Terraria - Chapter 1: Themed Furniture" by PaintingTerraria

I would also recommend that you dont fill your build up to much until its too cramped.

Forrgott added:
The little things make the difference sometimes; an extra pot here for weeds to grow in, a platform painted to match the background with a bottle or plates on it, etc . . .

Do you have further recommendations?

Lava Escape - Terraria minigame

I made a minigame called 'Lava Escape' in Terraria.

Goal is to reach the Golden Chest in a minecart by only using the jump key(space).

The mechanics are adopted (stolen) from Mocha's Minecart Obstacle Minigame and another minecart minigame concept also by Mocha. Thank you Mocha! :) I hope its ok.
I have to thank Plantszaza too, who is testing the game in the video.

1. Start by mounting the rail in the starting box to the top right.
2. Only key allowed and needed to play is jump [space].
3. No altering of speed [left or right arrow keys]. Stay at 20mph.
4. Try to reach the goal, the Golden Chest, by jumping at the right times.
5. If you get stuck, you have to reset  through the teleporter.
6. If you use the teleporter you loose one life.
(a flashing skull indicates a lost life)
7. The number of lifes lost is your (negative) score.
Best score is 0

What items and materials are important to keep from pre-hard mode for hardmode?

D3WR1T05 asked on reddit: What items and materials are important to keep from pre-hard mode for hardmode?

If you are running out of space in your chest-room, i would recommmend building a bigger one and transfer all your things.
In case you dont know: you can alt-click to favorite things in your inventory. Favourited items cannot be quick-trashed, quick-stacked or deposited. Then you can click the 'loot all' and 'deposit all' buttons when a chest is open to quickly shift your stuff from one chest to another.
A list of things i would definitely keep (not claiming to be complete):
  • Iron (lead) ore: some crafting recipes need iron
  • Wood: some crafting recipes need wood
  • Gold (platinum) ore: boss summoning
  • All plants: potions
  • Fish: potions
  • Seeds: more potions and biome spreading
  • 20 40 Hellfirestone bars: for the last mount you can get
  • Accessoires: maybe you can combine them later
  • Gems: if you want to build something shiny
  • Of course you want to keep your current loadout
  • Everything else
  •  40 Hellstone 
  • 40 Meteorite bars
  • Cobweb/silk
  • Pumpkins
  • all lenses and vertebraes/rotten chunks
Thanks to /u/Incoherrant and /u/i_wanna_be_the_guide for the help making this list.

What did we miss? Tell me :)

Lighting alarm door

DaneTheBeast on reddit asked Is no one using this feature anymore?
In regards of wired torches. I replied:

I use it with colored torches: If the (per pressure plate activated) actuated entrance wall is open, all the red lights are on, so i become alerted to close my base. If everything is closed the lighting switches to normal (in my case blue)

If you have awesome ideas for wired torches, let me know! :)

Red House Update: lockgate & lightswitch. King Slime came to visit. (2m43s)

I finished working on the circuits for lighting and a lock gate door, when i invited King Slime for a cup of tea. But he brought his buddies that were not invited.
They nearly broke my furniture while blobing. So i kicked them all out to show you the Red House lockgate and lightswitch by day and by night.
