Pretty much all I want to know is how many different possible worlds can the Terraria world maker make. Like in Minecraft you can generate over 18 Quintillion different possible worlds from the generator.

  • It's probably more than a billion, so it's effectively infinite. – MBraedley Apr 10 '19 at 12:40
  • I think it's the number of unique map tiles the power of the product of maximum map width and height. So, a lot. – zero298 Apr 11 '19 at 0:51
  • i feel like this question is probably a little too broad in a way, considering it's relatively vague and has no relevance to anything else. this is just an observation based on the how to ask a good question site, and i could be wrong. – EarthToAccess Apr 11 '19 at 21:35

The official Wiki details the use of world seeds when generating a world. With the same seed, world size (Small, Medium or Large), Corruption/Crimson choice and difficulty (Normal or Expert), the worlds generated are guaranteed to be the same.

In other words, any difference in parameter would result in a different world. As the seeds are at most 10 digits, you are likely to have 10^10 * 3 * 2 * 2 = 120,000,000,000 different worlds, which is more than a hundred billion.

  • You should check this: youtu.be/7MxekA2GDmE?t=1791 While the intended behavior is for same seeds to always generate equal worlds, this doesn't seem to be the case: The video explains (starting at 29:54) that the jungle generation may not be consistent with the seed provided. – Cássio Renan Oct 18 '19 at 17:42
