I write code and I write music. I'm currently studying for a master's in computer science, researching how music can be used to create user interfaces, and writing the music for Takamo Universe, a 4X space MMO.

comment How big do artificial biomes need to be to spawn monsters?
Enemies will only ever spawn off-screen. If your artificial biome is small enough that it fits in your entire screen, you need to move so that at least part of it is off-screen first.

comment Exactly when do I level up in sneak?
I'm on the console version, so I don't know if I can auto move. Would just crouching in the corner work, even if more slowly?

Unfortunately, it looks like your answer is incorrect. We're downvoting it not to be mean, but so that future readers know what's correct and what isn't. Having answers downvoted is part of how Arquade works, so everyone makes some mistakes – I myself have had answers downvoted because they were wrong, like this one. If you have other game knowledge you'd like to share, I hope you stay active at Arquade!

comment Can I mine Obsidian/Hellstone pre-Hardmode without getting Crimtane/Demonite Ore?
@Manishearth Yeah, the thing about Terraria is that until late hardmode, there's a definite order you're expected to visit each area in. Unfortunately, you're best bet is to take out the Eater of Worlds, then immediately beat Skeletron and complete the dungeon. Good luck!

comment Can I mine Obsidian/Hellstone pre-Hardmode without getting Crimtane/Demonite Ore?
If you're trying to get into the underworld without first completing the Crimson (AND the dungeon AND the jungle), you are in for a world of hurt. The underworld enemies are the hardest pre-hardmode enemies in the game, and they will do a lot of damage if you don't have at least crimson armor.

Also, on StackExchange, when you cite another website that includes the answer, it's recommended that you quote the most important couple paragraphs in your answer. This way, if the link dies, its information is still available to future readers. =)

Thanks! This might be my problem. I'll try it out later tonight and accept your answer if that was it.

I'm playing single player, so I don't think my Internet connection matters. I've tried two mice, both of which work as expected outside of Terraria but have the same problems in the game.

comment What are these red triangle-shaped things?
For Adventure, you could have tried interacting with them. Then you'd have gotten an answer pretty quickly =) (+1 anyway, though)

comment Are bosses usually in the same location during a challenge?
Do you want to know where the boss is, or just whether or not its location can change from game to game?

-1: It is extremely unlikely that leaving a console on will burn someone's house down.

@Frank: I up voted his question. Research or no, this is still a clear question that will be useful to future readers.

comment Microvolts on Steam came with 'XTrap'. Is it safe?
Looking at the duplicated question, it actually looks like X-TRAP can be quite nasty. It's not malware, but it is very invasive. I suggest reading the answers in the duplicated question.

comment How do I get rich quick?
In general, Terraria is a complex enough game with little enough in-game explanation that reading the fan wiki is not only not cheating, but almost necessary to make progress.

comment What benefits are there to having a homeworld with a higher threat level?
@Sterno I quickly ran out of enough space to store stuff where I could organize it on my ship. Next character wipe, I'm going to use my home world for more storage.
