sorry @akoush and everyone else. Its not becuase i havent tried. I spent over a day trying to get the game running on the MG servers but the blame here clearly lies with Terraria developer.
He basically hasnt released a linux server client and by the looks of things, isnt planning on doing so either. The community is reliant upon the modding community to release a server client and redigit, the terraria dev is basically making life as hard as possible for them rather than supporting them..basically he is an idiot.
So i am waiting on the modding community to release the 1.1 version of the server software so I can install it.
Another reason why Steam is stoopid is that it has forced the 1.1 update on everyone who has the game. This means I cant even run the previous version of Terraria to work with the current server version as there is no way of rolling back an update....
Basically there is nothing i can do but wait. Sorry everyone, blame terraria and blame valve\steam
P.S: In the mean time, if you have minecraft you can jump on the MG minecraft server
