These games are both very similar and I'm sure many people are familiar with them. I've played both, but only by myself. I think it would be interesting, and fun, to set up a server for one or the other for DDO people to play at their leisure.

For those that don't know, both games are extremely open-ended, sandbox type games with absolutely no rules, points, goals, or objectives other than what you decide.

Minecraft:
Is a 3D game where the entire world is made out of "blocks." Dirt blocks. Sand blocks. Stone blocks. Tree blocks. Everything is a block. You can mine the blocks to craft materials and items as well as to place them back into the world to build constructions of your own design.

There is much you can do such as: massive building projects; mining into the depths of the earth; exploring (the worlds generated by Minecraft are several times larger than the planet Earth); fighting monsters (there are dungeons underground that spawn monsters and monsters naturally spawn when it gets dark enough).
http://www.minecraft.net...

Terraria:
Terraria has been referred to as being a 2D version of Minecraft. This is true to a degree. Basically the world is made of blocks which you can harvest to craft and build other things. However, Terraria is more combat oriented. There is a wider variety and quantity of enemy characters, including boss characters that appear under certain conditions or be summoned. Since it's 2D there is less focus on exploration. It is more hack and slash and adventure oriented.
http://www.terraria.org...

Like I said, I think it would be fun and/or interesting to get some DDO players together to play casually. What's good is that you can just set up a server that people can join in at their discretion, play to whatever degree or extent they want. Nothing needs to be coordinated to any significant degree. If anyone is interested, I highly recommend they check out both the link web pages as well as looking at play videos on youtube.

Meh. Let's not make this a flamewar. Some people have different tastes in games. I never really liked games like Modern Warfare or other FPS.

I'd like to see if people are genuinely interested in this. You can get dedicated servers for cheap .I'm not asking anyone to pay, I'm just saying that this is easily set up.

Oh, yeah. It does cost money to buy the game. Both do, so I guess I forgot about that aspect. :(

For the record, Minecraft is about $27 and Terraria is $10. But it's a 1-time time purchase.

So I guess this is more a thread for people that already have one or the other.

My friend won Minecraft in a contest. So jealous! But I guess I won that laptop...

I actually have a server for both, but their Hamachi, and I have to be on for it to work.

Connection may vary.

Not sure what Hamachi is. I was thinking of renting a dedicated server hosted by a company so it's always on for people in different timezones.

Hmm, that would work.

And Hamachi is basically a way to connect IP's.

Google it for more info.

This company only does Minecraft. I'm also only really willing to do one of these and I think Minecraft as more general appeal. If it doesn't take we can always try the Terraria angle.

Ok then.

So, do you have an ETA for the server yet?

The web site says it's pretty quick but can take up to 6 hours.
