How to install Terasology Alpha 6 on Ubuntu 16.04, 16.10

   Terasology is a game that pays ample tribute to Minecraft in initial look and origin, but stakes out its own niche by adopting the NPC-helper and caretaker feel from such games as Dwarf Fortress and Dungeon Keeper, while striving for added depth and sophistication.

There are still some known issues that have been notable lately, those are tracked in a new milestone and hopefully we can fix some of those soon and maybe make Alpha 7 a pretty quick follow-up.

New modules included:
  • Alchemy - brew potions!
  • Cooking - make food!
  • EdibleSubstance - guess what this one goes with
  • Smithing - metal stuff - being extracted somewhat out of the TTA template
  • Thirst - extracted from Hunger which used to cover both
  • WorkstationCrafting - meant to hold the crafting powering both TTA and JS

Installation instructions:

   The GetDeb repository contains the latest packages of Terasology, available for Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 16.10, and derivatives.

Opening terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and running the command:

Ubuntu 16.04 xenial

$ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb xenial-getdeb games" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list'

$ wget -q -O - | sudo apt-key add -

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install

Ubuntu 16.10 yakkety

$ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb yakkety-getdeb games" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list'

$ wget -q -O - | sudo apt-key add -

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install

How to Remove:

   To remove Terasology, open terminal and run command:
$ sudo apt-get remove terasology&& sudo apt-get autoremoveus

   And you can remove the GetDeb repository by going to System Settings -> Software & Updates -> Other Software tab.
