Can I transfer my Terraria world from one PC to another?

I have two Terraria worlds, one on my laptop and the other on my PC. I want to transfer over my laptop world to the PC, whilst keeping the existing PC world.

So I’m looking at my laptop and the files name is world1.wld and the game on my PC has the same name. Do I have to rename the file to world2.wld?

  • Is there a mob that can generate new crimson, similar to the corruptor?
  • What is a reliable method to locate floating islands in Terraria?
  • I have defeated the Wall of Flesh, unlocking hard mode. Why won't the Pwnhammer break Crimson Altars?
  • What happened to all the copper and other ores?
  • How do I summon the Golem boss?
  • How do I safely redirect lava?
  • How does corruption spread?
  • Is there a mob that can generate new crimson, similar to the corruptor?
  • Can pre-hardmode bosses spawn in hardmode?
  • Why can't I mine my ore in Terraria?
  • How do I safely redirect lava?
  • How long do dropped items persist?

    Yes, if you wish to have both worlds on your PC (assuming that’s the destination computer), you need to rename the transferred file to “world2.wld”. Otherwise, the older one will be replaced by the newer one.

    If you are looking to transfer player files to another PC, the player files are in the a similar area to the world files. If your world files are in \Terraria\Worlds, then your player files are in \Terraria\Players. (At least they are this way on Vista.) The files are named like the worlds… Player1.plr, Player2.plr, ect. Don’t forget to back up the files before messing around, for example make a copy of the Players and Worlds directory (or at least the files you want to work with) before copying.
