    I just tried it again with using the Windows Direct Download but after following each step, the same message popped up again. I have no idea what the problem is.

    Development Roadmap to Multiplayer #2
    Update #1

    The first quarter has come and gone, along with many updates to the development of multiplayer. The first thing to address is that multiplayer is not yet ready for the public. Our estimation of Q1 was a little ambitious, but we've made a lot of progress that allowed us to have a closed test with our Patrons recently. So now it is time to give an update on what we've done, where we are at, where we are going, and beyond.


    What We've Done

    Right off the bat, here is the list of items we've completed from "Break It Down" section:

    1. Address outstanding bugs from the first Roadmap
    2. Implement Lobby System
    3. Dynamically connect players to correct server based on previous game session
    4. Implement Server Transfer system
    5. Update Chemistry UI
    6. Implement assets for Mushroom Picking
    7. Implement assets for Miki's Delivery Service
    8. Implement Sivania assets for A Dryad's Distress
    9. Implement some new assets in Sivania
    10. Implemented Mushroom Picking to our new Quest standard
    11. Implemented Miki's Delivery Service to our new Quest standard
    12. Implemented Sivania portion of A Dryad's Distress to our new Quest standard
    13. Patreon multiplayer Test of Tutorial Island and Sivania
    As you can see from the list, we've hit a lot of our goals, but fell short on some. So let's dive into what's left to do in this roadmap, as that will drive part of our work leading up to the release of multiplayer.

    Where We Are
    Minecart Madness
    We've had a lot of discussion on how this quest stands and we've decided that the current single player version of the quest doesn't live up to our new quality of quests. This means that we've updated the design of the quest. The quest will now be more engaging, fun and challenging. Because of this, we'll not be releasing this quest at the initial launch of multiplayer, it will come as a future update.

    A Dryad's Distress
    We implemented the portion that takes place in Sivania, but decided the portion of the quest that takes place in The Great Forest does not meet our new quality of quests. Similarly to Minecart Madness, we've redesigned the rest of the quest to be more challenging and fun. We are currently still deciding on releasing this with the initial launch of multiplayer, but if we feel that it is not worth delaying multiplayer to release this portion of the quest we will release it as a future update.

    The Temple of Ra
    We've had a lot of feedback about this quest from our single player version of STW. Most of that feedback is that the quest is too hard. We've looked over the current design and decided that as the quest stands, the challenges themselves are not too hard, but damage dealt to the player is too high. We will not be changing the design of this quest, but instead allowing for a more forgiving experience as you solve the puzzles. This quest is planned to be released with the initial launch of multiplayer.


    Where We Are Going
    We've stated in What We've Done, we recently completed a test with our Patrons from Patreon. This test lasted 48 hours and provided us with a lot of feedback. We've already started working on the list of bugs and updates that we need to make. As it stands we have just over 50 items left to complete on this list and we make progress on this list every day. As we keep hammering on this list, we'll also get The Temple of Ra implemented and assess the rest of A Dyrad's Distress completion at regular intervals - we don't want it to delay multiplayer.

    So we've got some quest content to do, and this list to make things more stable/improve quality - what else needs done? We've got a few updates that we want to make to improve our release process as that will smooth out future releases of STW. This requires a little bit of work on our custom launcher. After this we plan to launch STW mutliplayer alpha servers that are running 24/7! These servers will at first be only accessible by our Patrons (new updates coming to our Patreon soon, including lowering the cost of accessing multiplayer). As the servers prove to be stable and reliable we'll host weekend test that allow for our loyal followers to try out multiplayer first hand. The next step will be releasing the flood gates and enduring some stress tests on the servers.

    As we move forward towards multiplayer we'll continue to answer questions on where we stand and be proactive on releasing information.


    Beyond
    If you've played the single player version of STW you might be asking yourself, what about Odin's Fjord or the Ferrousanguis region, what's up with them not being mentioned yet? These two regions are still going to be in STW, but we feel that we don't need to delay the release of multiplayer while we implement these regions. These regions, along with the quests in them, will be coming in future updates - after we release multiplayer.

    The next question is, what's the plan after all the content from the single player version of STW is implemented in multiplayer and the servers are up 24/7 and stable? We plan to get back to doing what we've been wanting to for awhile now - new content updates! We hope to regularly release new content to STW in the forms of new quests, enemies, minigames, and skill updates regularly. These will often require new areas and regions so the mod is planning on growing - a lot! We're excited about where STW currently is, and we are even more excited on where STW is going!

    The idea of a MMORPG Terraira sounds amazing. Can't wait until full release.

    Roadmap to Multiplayer #3

    Welcome to the third Multiplayer Development Roadmap! This thread will be use keep our fans and players up-to-date on what we are working on and how much work still needs to be done until we reach our first open beta test of multiplayer! We’ve come a long way since Roadmap #2, so let’s hop right into it:


    Summary of previous Roadmap
    Roadmap #2 focused heavily on the Sivania region and multiplayer. While we didn’t quite get to the end of it in the time we expected, we’re very happy with our progress so far! The things we didn’t get to will be the beginning of this roadmap, so don’t think we’ve forgotten about them. Here’s a summary of what we accomplished:
    • Implemented dynamic lobby system for players connecting to the game
    • Implemented the Server Transfer system so you can hop between game worlds
    • Implemented Mushroom Picking quest
    • Implemented Sivania portions of Miki’s Delivery Service and A Dryad’s Distress
    • Conducted a 48 hour long Patreon test of Tutorial Island and Sivania
    Goal of Roadmap #3
    The goals are pretty straightforward:
    • Improve general stability of Super Terraria World
    • Finish outstanding work on Sivania region
    • Launch persistent Multiplayer Beta Servers with 24 hour Patron access + weekend invite tests

    Estimated Completion: Q2 2018

    Break It Down:
    1. Address critical bugs found from 48 hour Patreon test
    2. Implement all new Sivania tiles
    3. Implement all Sivania skilling areas
    4. [World Building] Build the new Sivania Mines area
    5. Temple of Ra quest
    6. [World Building] Improve existing Sivania areas
    7. Live Multiplayer Beta servers
    8. 100 player closed multiplayer test of Super Terraria World

    Not-So-FAQ

    Q: You missed your Q1 deadline for roadmap 2. What gives?
    A: We think it’s good to be ambitious with what you can accomplish, and now we have a better idea of how long it takes us to do implement new things. We never expected to complete everything in roadmap 2 in the timeframe we expected (so goes the trend for STW!) but keeping a short deadline helps motivate us to get things done faster.

    Q: What’s stopping you from missing the deadline on this Roadmap too?
    A: Nothing! We think of these roadmaps as more of a journey, rather than the destination. The further we make it down this roadmap, the closer we are to releasing STW. We think there’s a careful balance between rushing out a product before its ready and spending too much time on something and stalling development. These roadmaps are just here to keep you all updated on our progress and keep us focused on what’s important.

    Q: Terraria: Otherworld shut down and now I’m worried you will too!
    A: Not to worry! While we are all sad to hear the news about Terraria: Otherworld, we need to remember that Re-Logic does have significant financial commitments to itself. We are directly supported by our community. As long as we continue to receive your support, STW development will continue.

    Yes ^.^ We've been working on getting the refactor complete, so that we can launch our multiplayer servers. Nothing is open to the public just yet, but we plan to have the servers live sometime this year. As we get closer to that goal, we will announce a date. In the meantime, if you're curious, you can see the work we need to accomplish on our most recent roadmap post: https://forums.terraria.org/index.php?threads/roadmap-to-multiplayer-3.69558/
