S01P03: First Items and Money Factory in Terraria

By Pawel23 | TerrariaDiary | 10 Feb 2023

For Developing your progress within a Game. Important can create Boss and Enemy Areanas, and Item Factory. In Today's episode, I will show you my first iteration to create Item Factory. At the beginning of the Game, before entering Hard Mode it was the best possible used and known us to obtain Money. You will also see the first kind of Enemy Arena, but it was more to obtain some Items on Monday. In one of the next blog posts, I will show created by me Enemy Arenas as well.

Creating a First Factory

Initial View. As you know from previous posts. In this Season I am describing progress from some snapshots. Today we will extend Factory and make it more useful.


As you can see above. I have some not used places. I will extend it to create a bigger "Factory":


I am creating as well additional room for "Enemy Statue". I will use it to obtain additional items and sell some of them to receive Money from NPC.


For safety reasons, I use "Superior Lunar Portal Stuff" (the type of lasers shown below). For such Rooms, you can not use Enemy Statue for Enemy, which can exit from bricks. 

Superior Lunar Portal Stuff - This is to obtain after defeating Moon Lord. (Last Boss in Game) For most of the players, it is not a solution. Instead of this, you need to use some traps. 


Ready my first own factory:


One more look. After the first use, we changed the bricks. We obtain it from the "Granite Golem Statue". That means we use our factory to crate for us materials to finish it. :) 


And... finished:


Adding and Modifying missing walls

As I started with walls and bricks. My next step was to finish it.  Idea was, that each Room should have different pair of walls/Bricks.

First our small pool. Perfect for quick fishing:


NPC Homes:


In the beginning, I used what I have in Factory:


Later on, changed on. Cooper is good for Factory?:




New small Room with Trophies

Trophies are small but only decorative. They are not playing a bigger role. I build for this purpose separate room. You can obtain Trophies from Bosses, but they do not always drop them. According to Terraria wiki, there is a 10% chance for a drop. 

This place I use to build this room:


... and this is what it looks like:



In addition, for creating a working factory, we need of course wire and something, which activates it. Here are example connections. The blue wire is a connection between two teleports. I had the idea to have teleports to "Boss Arena" in the place where items are collected (including hearts to recover), but I can say it now. It was not working as I expected. 



*S01P03 ) - means Season 1 and Post 3. I will be publishing less/more of this as Seasons. As usual, we have some time more free time, then we have more time to play a game and prepare materials, and less free time, then we have a break. That is why a natural consequence is to follow the TV-Series approach and make it "Seasons". I hope you like it!
