Here comes the interesting bit that separates your tiny little vanilla Terraria server from a wonderfully crafted unique Terraria gaming experience. Plugins are what make every Terraria server more interesting. The more interesting, the more players you will have on your server. The more players you have, the funner the game is for everyone, the more donations you can get, the more popular your more server becomes – everyone’s happy.
So here’s how you install plugins on your Terraria server:
For this example I will be installing the Fun & Admin Commands 1.26 by Hiarni.
Before you install a plugin, make sure your server is offline and not running.
- Download the plugin. We recommend checking the official resource for tshock plugins on their website.
- Drag and drop the downloaded plugin folder into the TShock\ServerPlugins folder.
- Run the server
- Log into the server
- Give the groups you want to have the commands the necessary permissions with the /group addperm [group] [permissions] command. These are the plugin permissions for this example.
It’s quite simple stuff really, but be sure to check the plugin page for any certain plugin compatibility issues or special install instructions. If you have issues after installing, try removing other plugins – most of the time, problems arise because of compatibility issues between plugins.
