    But then it sends me back to my initial landing point, and then I've lost where I was D:
    I think I found a mini-boss in my travels. Hints of it being the fact that it was big, took a tonne of damage to kill, and dropped this huge ass club.

    The fact that the topography kept it from charing at me helped, but here's what I got out of it:

    THE THING SHOOTS A SHOCKWAVE WHEN I SWING IT OMG O_O

    Edit: and now that the shockwave novelty has worn off... it's actually worse than my sword. !_! I mean, it beats it in overall damage... but I can kill better with the sword. And the shockwave damages the terrain... it's really good for tunneling through dirt, way faster than a pick!
    Ahhh I'm so jealous! By the way, if you wiki it, the moon requires extra protection or else your life gets sapped. That's why I tend to stick to arid or forest biomes. I did snow too, but I had to juggle two campfires so that I wouldn't freeze to death.

    (Plop one down, mine until out of range, put down second, go back for first, repeat)

    I think it's a moon, only because of its size related to the nearest world or whatever from my spaceship. But it's where I initially set down, so...

    Edit: The bigger world is a snow world, it looks like. I didn't know if I could go there without fuel or not, so I never tried. XD

    Which means crafting silver armour... well, my overprepare for playstyle says crafting silver armour.

    But silver eluuuuuuudes me. Silver, wry you so hard to find? So much copper and iron, though.

    also, @Daklore, ignore silver armour, make the Yarn Spinner, farm leather, and make the Snow Infantry armour, better than silver, and keeps you warm on ice planets even if it's night to boot

    right now it's in beta, so it's hard to give definitive answers, but on this one, you're not bound to the rule "One world", you can literally destroy your starting planet, move to a next one, etc, all without having to generate a new world everytime, so in that respect I find it a step up. Also the enemies are actually brutal for a change

    Ughhh that first boss battle was sooooooo boring and long. 

    Right now I'm burning all my fuel exploring because of the player wipe coming up. I'm looking forward to restarting with the new armour changes.

    Yeah, early beta so they don't have much attention on the third tier yet.  There's 10 tiers planned in total for release, though, so you can bet they'll be getting a lot of love soon enough!

    In the meantime I'm exploring surfaces looking for cool stuff.  I finally found my first tech, and it is AWESOME.  It's this gravity bubble that lets me fly, sort of  like Terraria wings.  So cool.

    I too have just been surface hopping. Forget pixels, I'm just looking for treasure boxes. @Penwize, what did you find your tech in? A normal treasure chest, a dungeon, etc?

    All the techs I've found so far show up in green high-tech chests, just dotted randomly on the landscape.  Some people have found them in chests in labs and such too form what I've seen, but I haven't been so lucky!

    Still playing Terraria. In fact, I was playing Terraria when my friend got on Steam and yelled STARBOUND at me before playing it himself >_>

    I figure I'll wait it out till Christmas sales before picking this up, I still have a bunch of games off my Black Friday binge that I haven't tried yet.

    First planet visited, a moon, no tree, ran out of torches...damn. Mined enough coal to go to a threat 11 planet, and was able to fight things as long as they didn't 1 shot me. Reward?

    Been playing a lot of this. Then I beat the first boss, who smashed my house and had his minions destroy my storage, only to have the item he drops vanish before I could get to it.

    A little frustrating to say the least.

    At least I got an axe named Poop Wobbler out of a sewer dungeon that had little smiley poop monsters and giant poop monsters.

    Man, game designers love poop.
