    Every time the file is saved over the old version is deleted. If you ever run a recovery tool you'll see a huge list of files all with the same name/location :)

    What FrenchTart said. :p :D

    I'm really enjoying this, I flew to a dwarf planet orbiting my starting one, travelled to the left and found a huge town full of goods and services.

    And it's cool to see them react when you mess around with their stuff.

    How'd you mean set up dropbox? Make it so the folder the characters are saved in is uploaded to Dropbox so you can access old versions?

    Make frequent back ups so that you have a file to fall back on when things go boobs up.

    It's what I'm reading. :)

    Yeah. If you have your character folder synced via dropbox (or another similar program) you will have several versions of your character backed up to dropbox. If the latest gets corrupted just revert to the last version and so on.

    Both, added the statues and tombs from another planet! Main design is discovered, thankfully you'll come across the same race on other planets. So always steal :D

    Spikes and Chainsaw in pits, again from another planet. I've even come across high tech chests and powerful weaponry, like +34 damage swords e.t.c

    Cool, friends comp crashed and it corrupted his character yesterday. That would be really useful for him. Guess the only downside is you'll still lose everything from that session (I don't think the game autosaves periodically does it?) but it beats losing the char entirely.

    To be honest I don't know how often it autosaves, if at all so yeah..probably everything from that session. Might be worth logging in/out a fair bit when you get the chance :)

    My one crashed and I thought I lost all my gold ore etc. but got lucky, so I'm not sure if it periodically saves but it sure seems that way right now. Quick saves would be nice.

    Server-side characters and inventory would be even nicer :) Though I guess then I'd have to mess around making copies of everything instead :p

    If you do crash, try going to single player mode then back to mp

    I'm playing SP mode only right now, just want to cruise about slowly and discover things. So maybe that's why it kept my save.

    We should say these things to the devs, if people haven't already. :p

    Already have :D


    What I really like about this game over Terraria is not just the different places, but the fact that what ever I build nobody unless they find my planet will destroy it! Was gut wrenching when I built the cinema, theatre and swimming pool on FT's server and it was bombed to hell and back! But now I can build what I want knowing for now I'm very much safe

    I had a crash the other day and it seemed like all I lost was about 30 seconds progress. I was doing a bit of mining near the surface and when I came back some of it was still there.

    You could do that offline anyway Neil ><
