Yes. On the surface. It can't spread underground because corrupt grass doesn't grow underground.

I have at least one world that left running day and night for a week at a time once and the jungle is still there. Give it up already, it won't disappear on you anytime soon.

Ark needs to chill but you're also missing that corrupt stone can turn mud into dirt, but there's no such thing as corrupt dirt and normal rear end dirt won't contaminate anything else. So if there are continuous chains of rock every 3 tiles (the underground jungle doesn't have that) sure it'll slowly spread but since normal rear end dirt can't grow corrupt grass that far down it'll be limited to areas immediately near corrupt stone.

Yeah, it can't spread that far down the way the underground jungle is built, with wide open caverns and little stone instead of small tunnels with the occasional big open area. Also now chlorophyte will convert corrupt/crimson underground into more underground jungle.

Iím doing it because the dumb wiki says corruption will eventually take over the world but the timeline is unspecified - so I just wanted a bit of clarity on that point. if it really is just a matter of digging little fire breaks on the surface thatís a such a simpler prospect than etching out thousands of blocks of tunnels to protect an unsusceptible underground jungle that I wonder why thereís much debate about this.

Gamers tend to be incredibly superstitious about this kind of thing. The overworld will eventually be taken over by Hallow and whatever type of corruption you have. The Jungle will never be gone, because it actively resists the changes. The underground Hallows and corruptions are also supposed to grow directly from stone block to stone block, but even in my longest-running world I never saw it expand much from the big V-shaped spread you get to start with when you enter Hardmode. If you do not plan to play for weeks or months non-stop, it will not be a problem.

Yes, youd o. Presumably it's because worlds can get pretty big and you don't want every throwaway gathering world you make to get put on the cloud.

Doesn't Chlorophyte basically fight back against the Corruption too?

Takes 400 wall pieces to fully research. but money? Get 100 copper in 38 seconds (or have a pinky spawn on you immediately that drops over 1g) flip that into unlimited copper, into unlimited silver, into unlimited gold and unlimited plat. 4k plat in less than 5 minutes.

No, corruption is caused by germs, and must be treated with anti-biotics. There are many miracle cures sold and they are to be avoided

Yes, the jungle surface is very pretty. Digging holes can be fun but it's hard work!

This is a bug with the game currently. More than half the time, loving with the sliders will have the game go "NO, MAXIMUM ONLY."

Also this is anecdotal evidence, but I have actually had underground jungle tiles convert into corrupted grass tiles. Although that was back in 1.3. And to be fair they never did spread from that point.

Yeah, it also takes 200 of a platform, because you can turn them back and forth at a 2:1 ratio. Same for ores and bars, although the game doesn't quite account for the fact that not all ores come in at a 4:1 conversion rate.

Ore and bars aren't quite the same since they only go in one direction. I got 25 meteorite bars from two chests well before a meteor landed on my world, but I won't be able to make meteorite bricks until I mine some ore.

Yeah, I just meant that it seems to account for the conversion factor, so even if you turn all your ores to bars right away it won't mean you need to collect four times as much ore to research bars.

Personal tip: you can set both a border color and a center color for your cursor. What I do is to select an uncommon and intense color for the center (such as medium red or blue) and then surround it with a border of pure white. You'll be able to pick it out instantly in front of nearly any background color - when the white wouldn't be visible, the red will be, and vice versa. It's one of the more useful tricks I've figured out over the years.

codo27 posted:

For the tower defense thing, I used my sky road for starters. I put 2 lightning traps right in front of one portal and that will take care of all enemies until the wyverns, save sometimes a javelin guy will get through but only take one hit. Then put another two on the other side. From there its a combination of ballistas and fire rods midway between portal and crystal and a couple close to the crystal as well. It can be overwhelming but make sure to collect the mana and create more as it becomes available.

Use conveyor belts to bring the mana to you; monsters are not affected by conveyor belts so it won't bring them in faster, but it will bring their drops.

You get a penalty for less than 300 'blocks' of liquid. At 50 'blocks' you can't fish successfully at all.

Any tips for master mode moon lord? Can't just sit under some blocks to block the beam now. Minecart goes too fast and makes him teleport on you constantly and you barely don't move fast enough anyway to get outside the beam range. Flying saucer mount doesn't go fast enough to dodge it either

Well now I want to take up smithing and stonecarving and install sword shrines as public art projects.

Although there probably are a few sword-in-the-stone installations in areas that heavily identify with Arthurian legend as a tourist draw.

i haven't reached moon lord in my master playthrough yet, but my recollection is that you can either try to moderate your speed with the minecart to keep ahead of the boss while using the rod of discord to dodge beam attacks (iirc the teleport will keep you in the minecart, so there's not actually much risk), or go so fast that the boss teleports constantly, which seems bad but in my experience tended to reduce the amount of damage you take while letting you keep away from the tendril that cancels healing.
