Pushing secret blocks to their limits [CLOSED]

Hey I had a random idea to have everyone with access to secret blocks see how far the blocks can go without running into large problems. I came up with this idea because in my latest project, terraria 2.0 (still need a new name😕), I used the “clone object times _” block to clone a truly massive amount of clones at once and the project had some interesting problems.

I think it would be cool to find out the limits for all the secret blocks, just as a thought experiment.

The limit for clones is 4095

A better way to say that would be to say that the limit for objects is 4096, and that this includes clones.

No the interesting thing is because all the clones are appearing at at once.

That creates some weird effects

And, I didn’t just mean the clone something times block, I mean all secret blocks. Well most.

Like what?

Well one that you would expect is that it slows the game way down, but you can actually see other parts of your code slowly running.

If you can see them slowly running, then it slowed the game down.

It’s interesting…

And what about the other blocks?


Also, what happens if you delete the first post in a topic?

Clones are the only secret blocks that really lag the game up

It deletes the topic.

You can only do it yourself if no one’s posted in it.


It’s a newer feature.

You can’t do it even if nobody’s posted in it.

Huh. Interesting. So, say, I accidentally pressed “create topic” when I was going for cancel, then I could delete the first post and get rid of it?

I believe so. I’m not completely sure.

I think AE just meant he’s going to push secret blocks to their limits in E-Pad’s code, not that E-Pad’s purpose is to push secret blocks to their limits.
