Is any way to improve the chances of a solar eclipse happening (apart from killing the mechanical bosses). Basically I want to get broken hero swords to be able to forge the terra blade...
Download TEdit click Open then select your world then click is solar eclipse and press save wait for it to load and done.
No, there is no way to improve the chance to get a solar eclipse. The 1 in 25 chance is fixed and can't be changed. You just need to be lucky.
Based on this answer, you can summon a solar eclipse with the Solar tablet at any point in daytime since v1.3 (on PC version).
A solar tablet can be crafted from 8 solar fragments on a hardmode anvil.
Solar fragments can be looted from the lizahrd temple mobs & chests, and you can even find a full tablet in a chest.
There is no way to actually speed up solar eclipse as well as blood moon in the game
I suggest just stay in Terraria for 25 Terraria days since its a 1 in 25 chance that means the odds of you getting a solar eclipse in at least 1 of those days is like REALLY HIGH it's like an 100% chance
