Do you have any idea on how this modder even did whatever he did I'm just curious on how he made worlds infinite but i do know theres a lot of .reg files in his world folders

The game has had infinite worlds since 2014, it's just been locked because it isn't properly finished, particularly the multiplayer side. The modder basically unlocked it.

Oh wow no way, wouldn't it be possible to release infinite flat worlds in that case since they're technically ready and don't need biome generation? Many of us would enjoy terraforming their own worlds and wouldn't use genarated terrain anyway.

On another note, since he simply unlocked the infinite terrain option and infinite worlds is already built into the game without mods, wouldn't it theoretically work online?

I tried to get single player infinite flat worlds released for the last 360 update, but there were still too many things that didn't work properly, and there were more pressing things that needed to be fixed so I put it aside (again).

I say "particularly multiplayer", but really, there are still a lot of things that don't work properly in single player too. Let's just say there's still quite a bit to fix before it's releasable, even for flat worlds. But Infinite flat worlds will be a priority after multiplayer is released.

Online as in multiplayer? No, there are significant technical hurdles to get it working well in multiplayer. Mostly RAM issues for the host, but some others too. PC 64bit (via monogame) will fix the RAM issue.

I don't imagine we will be seeing 64bit Total Miner coming any time soon however? I remember you stating a few times in regards to it being a very tedious and time enduring task... Quote me if I'm wrong.
