Greetings Terrarians!

We don't know about you, but the heat this summer has been brutal so far to us! Sounds like a good excuse to grab some gaming time and catch up on the latest and greatest Terraria news, right? Development work on the Labor of Love update is in full swing across both the Re-Logic and DR Studios teams - and we are really excited for some of the juicy spoilers that we have in store for you this month (on top of those we have already shared this month in case you missed them on our socials). That said, grab a cold beverage, cool off, and settle in for this month's State of the Game!



PC - RE-LOGIC


TERRARIA - LABOR OF LOVE UPDATE

Labor of Love really feels like it is living up to its name more and more as each week of development goes by. The team has conducted a couple of playthroughs along the way, and we have found these to be some of the more fun and unique sessions that we have had for years. We have shared a lot of what is going into this update thus far, but rest assured that we have held some rather substantial changes and additions close to the vest as is tradition. We have a bit more to share this month... but some things you will have to discover yourself when Labor of Love launches.

No, we still do not have a date to give you - but we do see the light at the end of the tunnel...

Spoilers though? We've got one for you!


Wow, when you guys said you were going to be transparent with us about the new update, you weren't kidding!



STEAM WORKSHOP NEWS



Click the banner above to check out the Terraria Workshop!

Another month and another 1000 additions to the Workshop - with over 57,000 packs and worlds so far, you are missing out if you haven't taken the time to check out the Workshop yet.

We hope to get around to doing some "summer cleaning" of the Workshop once Labor of Love settles down a bit. If you get what we mean. (some of this has already begun)



WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON?

Right now, the core focus of the time is the final push to get Labor of Love done to what we have as the vision for the update. Still have that one eye on the future though.



TMODLOADER NEWS - TML TEAM



Hello everyone!

On June 2, 2022, we launched tModLoader for Terraria 1.4+ to Terrarians everywhere. This was the result of countless hours of hard work by the TML Team and many other contributors over the span of nearly two years, and the team is beyond thrilled to have TML 1.4 in your hands. We specifically want to recognize the following folks whom have made invaluable contributions to the TML project since Journey's End released in 2020:

direwolf420, Chik3r, ExterminatorX99, ThomasThePencil, Itorius, Steviegt6, Rartrin, Agrair, Ishigh1, DarkLight66, DarioDaF, kittenchilly, Dual-Iron, MrSlimeDude, sgkoishi, OliHeamon, RighteousRyan1, Igmc, NotLe0n, Pixelnando, daim03, fakelag, andrewlord607, pollen00, einarmo, Setnour6, MutantWafflez, Ozzatron, Antirhinnum, CriddleZap, jackbondpreston, Pbone3, ModernMAK, Crapsky233, absoluteAquarian, rjmarzec, ubnt-intrepid, ScalarVector1, Pacnysam, Falcon-05, staticfox, JPANv2, Nyrest, Naginif, D1plex, georgewoodall82, Tyfyter, zzp198, SpencerDawg, RunningDroid, Trivaxy, SadOnion, miarodri, sdegueldre, JamzOhJamz, Ved-s, BarteQ778177, Lumelore, RuneZhevitz, Dinoxel, jjohnsnaill, xKirtle, MikhailMCraft,terrynmuse, hannest03, Fatiz, Valjean42, TomaszOleszko, Rijam, IbanPlay, Fragstiller, S-Pladison



TMODLOADER STEAM WORKSHOP

The launch of TML 1.4 also allowed the team to bring the tModLoader Steam Workshop online. We have already seen nearly 1,400 mods make their way onto the Workshop in the first month alone, with some of the more well-known mods being added to the Workshop in recent days. Coupled with the in-game mod browser, the TML Steam Workshop is a great way to explore what modded Terraria has to offer - check it out today by clicking the banner above!



TMODLOADER 1.3 STILL AVAILABLE
Of course, the developers behind each individual Terraria mod will need to update their mods to the 1.4 era, so hang with them while that process takes place. We also realize that some older mods that are no longer in development may never make the leap to the 1.4 era. Given that, we have kept the 1.3.5 version of TML playable

How do I switch to back to 1.3 tModLoader?
1. Right click on tModLoader in Steam and select 'Properties...', then 'BETAS';
2. Select '1.3-legacy' in the drop-down menu on top;
3. Close the window. You don't need to type any passwords!



WHAT'S NEXT FOR TML?


One of the biggest priorities this last month has been to rapidly respond to release issues, and fix several of the bugs that users are seeing.

We hope the upcoming July stable release will fix a large portion, but we know there is still more to do and are actively working to resolve several. We appreciate everyone's patience as we pursue a better modloader!


Our other big priority this month was fleshing out tModPorter.


This custom software, bundled with tModLoader, provides the capability to quickly bring a 1.3 mod to majority ported to 1.4.

Further still, it will also be the primary tool we provide so modders can do the minor porting for code on each monthly release moving forward.

We hope that all modders take advantage of this tool to make their lives easier, and if you have improvements, don't hesitate to reach out in our discord.

As always, you can keep track the current progress and such more in real time at tModLoader/tModLoader[github.com] (But note that the completion percentage doesn't mean anything, because issues and PRs don't have weights.)

Developers who are willing to contribute may do so by doing PRs to the tModLoader/tModLoader[github.com] branch. (See tModLoader/tModLoader[github.com])



PlayStation, XBOX, Nintendo Switch, Mobile - DR STUDIOS

The team at DR Studios has been feverishly working to try and keep pace with the development of Labor of Love that is taking place on the PC side of things. Yes, in case you missed last month's State of the Game, we have already begun active development of Labor of Love for Console and Mobile. In addition, earlier in June we shared a "first look" spoiler on Mobile (which you will find below!) - the first time that brand new Terraria content/features have been shown on anything other than PC. Well, we don't want our Console Terrarians feeling left out - so here's another first look at a brand new feature coming to Terraria when Labor of Love is available...


No longer contained to blocks alone, the Banners finally broke free - able to be in full display on platforms and stairs alike!


So yeah, like we were saying, after years of playing catch-up, it is such a fun time to be able to work on Mobile (and Console) in parallel to the ongoing work on PC. What's that? You missed the Mobile spoiler earlier this month? Well, allow us to share it once again below...



Thanks as always for the honor and trust you give us each month to work on Terraria - it is not a responsibility that we take lightly, and we look forward to bringing more amazing things to you all as we move forward.

Greetings Terrarians!

May? It is seriously the end of May already? 2022 is certainly on an express train in terms of how fast time is flying by! That said, we hope you are as ready for Summer as we are... and it is shaping up to be an action-packed Summer indeed! What all do we have in store? Well, time will tell - but let's kick things off the right way with our final State of the Game update before Summer 2022 is here in earnest!



PC - RE-LOGIC


CHICKEN BONES JOINS RE-LOGIC

As our team is preparing to embark on the journey that will be our second game, we realize that there are some gaps in the team's skillset that we would like to fill - as well as the overall need for more quality folks in general. With all of that in mind, it is with great pleasure that we formally announce that long-time Terraria modder and core tModLoader Team member Chicken Bones to the Re-Logic family!

Chicken Bones (CB for short) is well-known in the Minecraft modding community, and he has a long history with Terraria and modding in general. Coupled with a strong background on the Technical/Tooling side of the coding world (a big need for the team moving ahead!), he will be an invaluable addition to the team. He has already been working hard alongside our core team, with a current focus aimed primarily on the development of tModLoader and tModPorter. Once full work on our second title begins, he will be part of the core development team that will be responsible for bringing that all together!

Please join each of us in giving Chicken Bones a heart-felt welcome to Team Re-Logic!


TERRARIA - LABOR OF LOVE UPDATE

The Labor of Love update is getting really close to reaching the goals and vision that we have in mind for it. Does that mean we are ready to give you a launch date? Well, not just yet - but know that we are feeling like it is getting closer and closer... so not too much longer, we think. Why do we call this update Labor of Love? Well, in honor the award you all so graciously decided we were worthy of for one, but your support goes well beyond that. It has been a while since we gave a numbers update, and they are pretty staggering:


TERRARIA
TOTAL: 44.5 million units sold
23 million on PC
9.1 million on Consoles
12.4 million on Mobile



45 Million soon, and then... the road to FIFTY MILLION


That is just insane, everyone. It is this support - along with just how loyal and engaged each and every one of you are that enables us to be who we are and do what we do each and every day. To say it is humbling and amazing would be beyond an understatement. So, we will once again just say thank you - sincerely, thank you from the bottom of our heart. We don't take this lightly, and we really look forward to continuing to earn your support and trust in the years to come.


Moving on with our news, if you want a glimpse into what goes into the process of how we look at release dates vs ongoing work... well, ChippyGaming has a breakdown of a recent chat Red had on Discord:



With that said, let's jump right in to more of what you can expect in the update, shall we?

In case you have missed the series of spoilers that have been shared by various members of the development team over the past month, we have compiled all of them for you below.


Town Slimes are ready to move in!


Melee is evolving... just ask the True Excalibur


Decorate your world with all the hearts and stars that your... heart... desires?


Either a scene from the Re-Logic Rave or the Empress of Light has been getting ready for Labor of Love


So much going on here... we will just let you see what you can find


Ropes and Cart Tracks, living together, mass hysteria!


Info Accessories are now more informative (or at least easier to read)


Macaws have landed in the Jungle!


Toilet Fishing? Toilet Fishing.

So all of that was shared in the last month alone... but wait, you want something new? Ok then...

  • You can now exchange your pet by using another Pet License! (They can now be purchased infinitely from the Zoologist)
  • Summoning Moon Lord with the Celestial Sigil now has only a 12 second summoning period instead of 60 second
  • Reduced the crafting cost of Celestial Sigil from 20 of each fragment to 12
  • Hive Pack now increases the fire rate of the Hornet Summon and increases the damage and defense penetration of Wasp Gun



Remember that absolutely beautiful Coral build from last month's State of the Game? Well... about that...

WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON?

Labor of Love is starting to enter its final phases, so parts of the team are placing an eye back on the future and project two.



TMODLOADER NEWS - TML TEAM



Hello everyone!

May was one of the most productive months for TML development in quite a while! There is so much going on behind the scenes as we push ever-closer towards the release of TML 1.4. Want all of the details? Read on!

As mentioned above, we have had our busiest month in a long time, having merged almost 60 code changes - nearly double a regular month! This is all thanks to a large push from every contributor and the TML Team, so that we could deliver 1.4 in time for 1.4.4.

On June 1st, we will be changing the default version of tModLoader from 1.3 to 1.4. To be clear, this is not intended to be a full feature-rich “launch”, but rather represents the substantial step of TML 1.4 leaving Alpha and moving into a formal Continuous Release Cycle.


The current 1.3 version will remain available in a Beta Branch on Steam in order to allow players to continue to use any mods that are or do not update to the 1.4 era. Instructions on how to use this version if you so choose are located here > tModLoader guide for players · tModLoader/tModLoader Wiki[github.com]

In addition, 1.4_soundfix, now known as "Sound Playback Reimplementation", has now been merged and we have eliminated the MergedTesting branch. This was holding up a few big mods, so hopefully, this will make life (and updating) easier for those teams!

Whew, that’s a lot of work done! Lots still to go… but the team is really enjoying the wave of momentum right now, excited to reach this key milestone with 1.4, and ready to get to work on what remains!


As always, you can keep track the current progress and such more in real time at tModLoader/tModLoader[github.com] (But note that the completion percentage doesn't mean anything, because issues and PRs don't have weights.)

Developers who are willing to contribute may do so by doing PRs to the tModLoader/tModLoader[github.com] branch. (See tModLoader/tModLoader[github.com])



PlayStation, XBOX, Nintendo Switch, Mobile - DR STUDIOS

PARITY IS HERE - FOR NOW - BUT WHAT'S NEXT?!​

We spent much of the month of May with our heads down, focused on getting fixes for the 1.4.1 - 1.4.3 update out to everyone. As of now, these fixes should be in your hands on all platforms, with the possible exception of Switch/Stadia/Amazon, which are still pending review. If you missed what all was addressed, check out the link below!

TERRARIA 1.4.1 - 1.4.3 CONSOLE/MOBILE FIXES[forums.terraria.org]


What else have we been up to? Well, exploring a few things that we still need to get in your hands (we haven't lost sight of things like Splitscreen+Online Multiplayer)... and maybe dabbling a bit into the future. What could that mean? Well, have a sneak peek then!



We will just leave you to speculate away from there... enjoy!

It is quite an exciting time in the world of Terraria right now, with all sorts of fantastic news happening as we speak - and with plenty more to come as the year moves on. Let's not waste any more time and instead spring right into the latest and greatest surrounding all things Terraria!



PC - RE-LOGIC

TERRARIA - LABOR OF LOVE UPDATE


The team has made a ton of progress on the Labor of Love update over the past month - and the finish line is in sight. Recently, we have been conducting a huge playthrough with the entire team alongside our trusty playtesters. What are we testing you ask? Well, it's a combination of all of the new stuff we added... and we are playing it on a brand new world seed that is unlike anything Terraria has seen before! What will await you in this new adventure? You will have to wait and see on that, I'm afraid. In the meantime, enjoy some Fart Kart...


Hey, quit crapping around! We have work to do!!

Want some more tidbits? Ok then fine...


So, we heard you all might like some Coral Furniture - something to really bring the beach home to your base. Feast your eyes on this!




Who doesn't love a good World Seed, right? And traps, everyone hates traps right? This one will totally scratch that itch for all you trap-haters out there.


What else does Labor of Love have in store? When will it arrive? Well, you will have to stay tuned to find out!

TMODLOADER NEWS - TML TEAM



Hello everyone!

Hello everyone!

We have some definite progress this month that you will want to check out - tML will be doing monthly previews starting in April... and an update on tML 1.4 timing. Want all of the details? Read on!

April has been a big month for tML and it's looking like May will be an even bigger month. Some major mods have started the port to tML 1.4, and they have provided valuable feedback in the process. We'll start May with a focus on a built-in mod porting tool, tModPorter (thanks to Chik3r and Tomat from the community!), which will automate small code changes which have to be made in thousands of places, reducing the amount of manual effort required from modders. We ask modders to keep an eye on tML development, come chat with us in the Discord, and start porting their mods to 1.4 to be ready for when tML 1.4 launches!


As always, you can keep track the current progress and such more in real time at tModLoader/tModLoader[github.com] (But note that the completion percentage doesn't mean anything, because issues and PRs don't have weights.)

PlayStation, XBOX, Nintendo Switch, Mobile - DR STUDIOS

CONSOLE/SWITCH/MOBILE CONTENT PARITY TO 1.4.3 REMAINS THE FOCUS​

Parity at last! Well at least for a little while...

That's right Console Terrarians, in case you missed it, the 1.4.1 - 1.4.3 updates went live for Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch yesterday! So, at least until Labor of Love comes out, all Terrarians are at parity in terms of the core content of the game. Want to learn more about what all is included in this latest Terraria update? Click the banner below to head over to the official launch thread to get all of the juicy details!

[forums.terraria.org]



Not to be outdone, Mobile Terrarians also received the 1.4.1 - 1.4.3 update yesterday! That's right, after yesterday's events, all actively-developed platforms of Terraria are on the same content version. This has only happened once for a VERY brief time (and to be fair, Labor of Love will break it again until we can catch back up), so this is certainly a momentous occasion. Of course, once Labor of Love is out, we will begin the work to get everyone back to parity as quickly as possible.

This update also comes with official support for Mouse and Keyboard on Mobile - in case you missed that last month.

Rest assured that once Labor of Love is out, the team at DR Studios will be hard at work to once again restore parity to the world of Terraria!

Greetings Terrarians!

March already... well almost April really?! 2022 is flying by - but we are sure glad to see Spring starting to come into full bloom and with it, a lot of the plans we have been discussing in earlier States of the Game are close to coming to fruition! 1.4.3 for Consoles and Mobile (parity... at least for a time!) is right around the corner, Labor of Love draws ever-closer, and we have a lot of exciting things to come on the community and merch fronts as well. So much has already happened this year, but we are just getting warmed up.

Let's see what is in store shall we?



PC - RE-LOGIC

TERRARIA - LABOR OF LOVE UPDATE

The team remains hard at work on a variety of Quality of Life and Balance updates alongside some other fun additions that will be coming your way with the Labor of Love update. We often get asked what we mean by "Quality of Life" updates - versus, say fixes or new features. So, we figured now would be a good time to show off one such QOL update that we are particularly happy to see added to Terraria. It is one that is a long time in coming - and one we figure will be pretty much universally popular.



What is this wizardry?!?

Simply put, we are increasing the stack size of nearly every stackable item in the game to 9999. Please note that there are some exceptions to this, but only around 10-15 which had to be kept as-is for mechanical purposes.

This is just one of the Quality of Life upgrades that you can expect once Labor of Love arrives later this year.

What else does Labor of Love have in store? When will it arrive? Well, you will have to stay tuned to find out!

The team has been almost solely focused on the various aspects of Labor of Love now that it is in full developmental swing. That said, we are quite eager to get back onto progressing our second game - which we will do once Labor of Love is done!



TMODLOADER NEWS - TML TEAM



Hello everyone!

Hello everyone!

We have some definite progress this month that you will want to check out - tML will be doing monthly previews starting in April... and an update on tML 1.4 timing. Want all of the details? Read on!

Moving forward, tML on Steam will have two different branches/betas: 'preview' and 'stable'. Most players on stable will be able to play without the fear of tModLoader updates breaking the game without notice. Each preview will be live for a month, giving modders time to update their mods and react to new changes, before becoming 'stable' at the end of the month. We encourage all 1.3 modders to come and start porting their mods to the preview next month! With some concerted effort, feedback and support, we hope to have the first 'stable' release of tML 1.4 in May, for Terraria 1.4's 2 year anniversary. For more info, come join us on Discord[discord.com], and watch the collaborators and [TML 1.4 ALPHA] channels!



As always, you can keep track the current progress and such more in real time at tModLoader/tModLoader[github.com] (But note that the completion percentage doesn't mean anything, because issues and PRs don't have weights.)

Developers who are willing to contribute may do so by doing PRs to the tModLoader/tModLoader[github.com] branch. (See tModLoader/tModLoader[github.com])



PlayStation, XBOX, Nintendo Switch, Mobile - DR STUDIOS

CONSOLE/SWITCH/MOBILE CONTENT PARITY TO 1.4.3 REMAINS THE FOCUS​

The team remains hard at work putting the finishing touches on the upcoming 1.4.1 - 1.4.3 updates for Console and Mobile. We remain fully on-track as of now to get this update in everyone's hands in April. We are very close to being able to submit to all first parties for approval - but we cannot give an exact launch window yet because we do not know how long or how many review passes any given company will want. That said, we are getting close!

To tide you over, here is a little teaser of what is coming your way (with a video from Mobile this time - but everyone will be getting the same content)... watch the cursor closely.



We are, of course, aware of some of the larger remaining bits (further KB+M work, Online+Splitscreen MP, etc) - and we still plan to get to these! Thanks so much for your feedback and reporting - with your help, we are able to fine tune and sort out issues to create a better Terraria experience for everyone!



Mobile news is much the same as the news for consoles... on track for April. Repeating that here in case you skipped straight here.

Again, it is our plan to bring Mobile and Console 1.4.1 - 1.4.3 out all together, all at once (send us your positive vibes please!) - and Mobile timing will be the same as shared above: April 2022.



COMMUNITY

Greetings Terrarians!

Here's the latest and greatest happenings on the Community side of things. Thanks as always for being the most engaged and awesome gaming Community ever!


THE OFFICIAL TERRARIA WIKI HAS A NEW HOME

In case you missed the news, the Official Terraria wiki has moved to https://terraria.wiki.gg/! As we shared in the news post, we made this move primarily to be able to have greater creative control over the appearance, ad content, etc. of the wiki in order to bring things together in a more consistent way for the long term. As in the past, Re-Logic receives nothing (revenue, etc) from the wiki - our involvement here is strictly to maximize the experience for the Terraria fans.

[terraria.wiki.gg]

So, head on over to the new Official Terraria Wiki today, update your bookmarks, and help us spread the word about the new home for all things Terraria!

---

Just a few days later, both the Thorium and Calamity Wikis made the move to wiki.gg as well!

New Official Terraria Wiki Launches Today! https://terraria-servers.com/blog/388/new-official-terraria-wiki-launches-today/ https://terraria-servers.com/blog/388/new-official-terraria-wiki-launches-today/ Mon, 14 Mar 2022 19:50 CET
The Terraria Wiki has been a valuable resource to players everywhere over the nearly 11 years(!) of Terraria's history. With so much content to explore, having such a comprehensive summary of everything at your fingertips is simply fantastic. The Wiki has undergone quite a few changes over the years from its beginnings alongside Terraria Online all the way to the current iteration run by Fandom. Throughout that time, we have been so fortunate to work with a lot of awesome partners in order to evolve and maintain a strong wiki for our fans.

The time has come for the next step on the Terraria Wiki evolutionary journey! Starting today, Re-Logic is proud to announce that we are launching a new location and partner for the Official Terraria Wiki!

[terraria.wiki.gg]

Moving forward, we will be partnering with the good folks at Freedom Games[www.freedom.gg] as one of the first games in their newly-launched wiki network[wiki.gg]. The new URL will be http://terraria.wiki.gg/ - and you can click on the image above to head there now!


[wiki.gg]

We are making this move primarily to be able to have greater creative control over the appearance, ad content, etc. of the wiki in order to bring things together in a more consistent way for the long term. As in the past, Re-Logic receives nothing (revenue, etc) from the wiki - our involvement here is strictly to maximize the experience for the Terraria fans.


Why these folks in particular? Well, at a high level, these were the actual individuals whom were responsible (with a lot of community help, of course!!!) for building the amazing wiki that we have had over the years. For example, many of you may know or recall ReedemtheD3ad! from the Gamepedia wiki days. He is on point to help run this new wiki effort with Freedom Games, so we feel like things are in good hands here!


The Fandom wiki will remain in place as a second unofficial Wiki, and on speaking to them, it is their intent to keep it up and fully operational.



So what does this mean for you, the player?


WHAT'S DIFFERENT?


  • Re-Logic has long wanted to further establish a more common "style"/look and feel across the various sites and ways in which our fans interact with Terraria. So, we have carried that through here by utilizing the style elements from our website and from our forums. In the future, we may explore "themes" like we have on the forums (Corruption, Crimson, Snow, etc) - but for now, we have used the base "Terraria" default theme as our basis.
  • Ads should be less obtrusive - we are actively avoiding some of the more problematic approaches here, which we have heard are an issue loud and clear from our community.
  • Ads will be "in-house", Freedom Games do not use a third party service like Google and they receive no direct revenue, they simply point to games that they publish.
  • Our ability to make changes - from our own ideas or from community feedback - will be exponentially higher. Simply put, we have more control now... which means so do you.
  • With a much closer relationship than in the past, we hope that this will mean faster updating as new content, etc. arrives.
  • We will be adding a link to the wiki from inside the game on PC. This already exists on Console/Mobile, but all links will be updated as soon as possible.



WHAT REMAINS THE SAME?

  • The starting point for the new Official Terraria Wiki will be the current form of the past wiki. You will find all of the old information there - so no need to reinvent the wheel or be worried that the important tip for how to beat that seemingly-impossible boss will be gone. We have done our best to ensure that all of that information made the journey over.
  • As mentioned above, the top management team of the Gamepedia wiki days are here... so there are some very familiar faces. Don't be a stranger!
  • The rules, etc. should be more or less the same as in the past.
  • The Fandom Wiki will continue to be in place as it has in the past - we do not have any issues with this, and think it will remain as a good additional option for folks.


WHAT DO WE NEED FROM YOU?


  • We need your help in establishing our new Official Terraria Wiki as the place to go for Terraria information! Make it your go-to spot, update your favorites, and be sure to link to/from the new wiki when chatting with each other about Terraria!
  • We need your help in editing and creating new content for the Wiki as time moves on.
  • Most importantly, we need your feedback! The enhanced ability to make tweaks and changes, etc. means nothing unless we are making it a better wiki for all of you. We have created a special thread here on our Forums for you to provide that feedback. Alternatively, you can join in on the discussion directly with the team over at the Official Terraria Wiki Discord. The team will be sure to read and consider everything you suggest.

Official Terraria Wiki Feedback Thread on TCF
[forums.terraria.org]



That's it, everyone - we hope that this feels like a good move for the Terraria Community in the long term. Once we get through this initial transition phase, we look forward to helping to provide an amazing Terraria Wiki experience that will better serve you all for years to come! Have any questions or concerns? Leave us a note here in this thread.


Cheers!

Terraria State of the Game - February 2022 https://terraria-servers.com/blog/387/terraria-state-of-the-game-february-2022/ https://terraria-servers.com/blog/387/terraria-state-of-the-game-february-2022/ Fri, 25 Feb 2022 21:04 CET

Greetings Terrarians!

In case you missed it, 2022 is certainly turning into a lovely year for Terraria! From starting the year with a pair of awards to last month's reveal of the big "parity" update for Console & Mobile Terrarians to this month's surprise sneak peek into the upcoming - and aptly named - Labor of Love Update for Terraria, how can you not love all that is going on in the world of Terraria right now? Of course, we couldn't do any of this without the love and support that you show us each and every day. So thank you, once again and we love you all!

Now... on with the show!



PC - RE-LOGIC

TERRARIA - STEAM DECK UPDATE (1.4.3.3)



With the Steam Deck officially launching yesterday, we pushed out our Steam Deck Optimization Update in parallel. This update contains both changes targeted towards Steam Deck and non-Deck players. The changes outside of the Deck stuff are mostly focused on bug fixes and some quality of life/balance tweaks. Bigger changes are coming down the road in the Labor of Love Update (for more information on that, keep reading!). For a full set of notes on the Steam Deck Optimization Update, check out the dedicated link below!




TERRARIA - LABOR OF LOVE UPDATE

In case you missed the big reveal a week or so ago, renowned Terraria influencer/content creator/all around superstar and great guy ChippyGaming had a world exclusive reveal of the upcoming Labor of Love Update for Terraria. Rather than go over all of that again, why not re-share the reveal video AND a follow-up video that delves deeper into some spoiler-y goodness that has been revealed since!





...and seriously, if you have not subscribed to Chippy's channel, you need to get on that immediately!

Oh... and our resident QA expert Leinfors shared this little goodie on Twitter earlier this week:



What else does Labor of Love have in store? When will it arrive? Well, you will have to stay tuned to find out!



STEAM WORKSHOP NEWS



Click the banner above to check out the Terraria Workshop!

The level of quality and quantity on the Terraria Steam Workshop keeps on growing and growing - with over 50,000 packs and worlds so far, you are missing out if you haven't taken the time to check out the Workshop yet. What are you waiting for?!



WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON?

Well, besides some good-natured fun with our Twitter locations (just keeping you all on your toes) and work on Labor of Love, we remain in the planning stages for our second game. What that might be and so on and so forth will be shared in due time, but likely not any time soon.



TMODLOADER NEWS - TML TEAM



Hello everyone!

The TML Team remains hard at work as we inch closer and closer to getting this thing done! We saw some notable performance improvements this month, but the big feature we're working on currently is a monthly release cycle with preview and stable streams. As you are likely aware, in the past there has always been a bit of a disconnect between tML updates and updates on specific mods - where the modders have to wait on a tML update to release and then scramble to update their mods accordingly.

This new feature will allow modders to be be able to respond to new tML features and changes - and get their mods ready in advance - by developing and testing against the preview version. Then, at the end of each month, ideally, people playing on stable will get simultaneous tML and mod updates, and should be able to continue their playthroughs unimpeded. Solxan has been busy working on this new deployment, and when we have it ready and tested we will encourage all modders to port their mods to 1.4.

Beyond that, the TML 1.4 Alpha remains available for you to check out. Again, please keep in mind that this Alpha is primarily intended for developers as an audience - so play around with it at your own risk!

https://steamcommunity.com/app/1281930/discussions/0/3051733836205288319/


As always, you can keep track the current progress and such more in real time at tModLoader/tModLoader[github.com] (But note that the completion percentage doesn't mean anything, because issues and PRs don't have weights.)

Developers who are willing to contribute may do so by doing PRs to the tModLoader/tModLoader[github.com] branch. (See tModLoader/tModLoader[github.com])



PlayStation, XBOX, Nintendo Switch, Mobile - DR STUDIOS

CONSOLE/SWITCH/MOBILE CONTENT PARITY TO 1.4.3 REMAINS THE FOCUS​
Given that we do not really know the timing or full content of the Labor of Love update as well as all of the already-completed work on 1.4.1 - 1.4.3 for Consoles and Mobile, the team made the decision to keep plowing ahead with our original plans. That means we will be focused on getting "current" parity into players' hands as quickly as possible. Now, there is a chance Labor of Love comes out first (which means we better rename this update) or there is a chance that this is a parity update that is then followed by PC jumping ahead again for a time. In either case, the team will be pivoting to bringing 1.4.4 to everyone just as soon as possible after the release of 1.4.1 - 1.4.3 plus any fixes needed.


So, with that topic taken care of, who wants to see more goodies coming your way in the Parity Update? How about a quick look at what's going on in The Constant seed?



Want more? Ok then, fine!
We are happy to reveal that our current trajectory has us on track to deliver the parity (1.4.3) update to everyone sometime in April 2022.

To be clear, there are a lot of moving parts here to make this happen – not the least of which are the various review processes from Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, etc. – so things could slip either way a bit as we are trying to bring every platform out at the same time. As we get a better sense and that window tightens up, we will be sure to share it with you all just as soon as we can!

We are, of course, aware of some of the larger remaining bits (further KB+M work, Online+Splitscreen MP, etc) - and we still plan to get to these! Thanks so much for your feedback and reporting - with your help, we are able to fine tune and sort out issues to create a better Terraria experience for everyone!



Mobile news is much the same as the news for consoles... except that we can share that Mobile progress has gone smashingly well so far. What's that you say? You deserve a spoiler too? Well we agree! Check out these familiar friends that stopped by for a visit on Mobile Terraria...



It is our plan to bring Mobile and Console Parity out all together, all at once (send us your positive vibes please!) - and Mobile timing will be the same as shared above: April 2022.

MEOWMERE AUTHENTIC REPLICA SWORD FROM FIRE AND STEELl

[fireandsteel.com]

Perhaps you have seen several images of the iconic Terraria rainbow cat sword in real life floating around (you definitely have if you follow our socials!). These are very limited edition Meowmere swords that were lovingly created by our friends at Fire and Steel. These are the real deal - made out of stainless steel and hand crafted to remain authentic to Meowmere itself. We have sent a handful of these out to our long-time friends and partners - but we can share that there will be two avenues for folks to get their hands on one of these epic pieces. We will be doing a raffle of sorts to give away 10 or so at some point (more details on that later), and the remaining 25 are available now for sale at Fire and Steel's site via the link below.

ANIMEGAMI STUDIOS REVEALS TERRARIA MINI-BIOMES - Your Feedback is Requested

The fantastic folks over at Animegami Studios, hot on the heels of the amazing Forest Biome piece (which is amazing if you haven't checked it out) has heard the desires of the Terraria community for a more accessible piece (or pieces) price-wise. The video below is a showcase of just that - the Terraria Mini-Biome series. With a target price point in the ~$100-$150 range, the team hopes that these are something far more Terrarians can get into in the event that they don't want to go all-in on something as extravagant as the Forest Biome piece. On top of that, the team would love to have your feedback on these pieces and more - so please take a few moments to check out the video and give them your thoughts via the Google Form link below!

Terraria 1.4.3.3 - Steam Deck Optimization Update Release Notes https://terraria-servers.com/blog/386/terraria-1433-steam-deck-optimization-update-release-notes/ https://terraria-servers.com/blog/386/terraria-1433-steam-deck-optimization-update-release-notes/ Thu, 24 Feb 2022 19:23 CET

Greetings Terrarians!

As we have mentioned over the past few months, the team has been hard at work on an update to further optimize Terraria for Steam Deck play - inclusive of performance and controls. With the Steam Deck officially shipping out to players starting today, we are pleased to be able to push this update out to everyone just in time! For Terrarians that are not playing on Steam Deck at this time, dont fret, as we have some quality of life, balance, and bug fixes for you as well. Without further ado, let's dive right in!

Please note that this update also includes an update to the Terraria Dedicated Server application. You can always find the latest version of this at the bottom of https://terraria.org/, but we have included a link below for today's version as well:




TERRARIA STEAM DECK CONTROLS​

Beyond technical under the hood performance optimizations and such, what else do we mean when we say "optimizing Terraria for Steam Deck"? Well one area of focus has been controls.

When we sat down to enjoy Terraria on the Steam Deck for the first time, we immediately realized that we needed to make a few tweaks to fully take advantage of all that this new system has to offer. Above and beyond the default touch controls provided by Steam Deck (which we may look to improve on in the future), we put together the little graphic below to show you how we have optimized things for all of the controls available on the Steam Deck:



Left Trackpad
– This gives you access to a handful of often-used commands right at your fingertips:
  • Up > Quick Heal
  • Left > Quick Buff
  • Right > Quick Mana
  • Down > Mount/Dismount

Right Trackpad
– This provides the player with a manual cursor, akin to using a mouse or a trackpad on a laptop
  • Pressing in the Right Trackpad acts as if you have pressed the Shift key on your keyboard

Back Buttons
– These will give you easy and ready access to all of your minimap and game window zoom options:
  • Bottom Left > Minimap Zoom Out
  • Bottom Right > Minimap Zoom In
  • Top Left > World Zoom Out
  • Top Right > World Zoom In


Battery Life
- We have done a handful of battery life tests on our development kit playing Terraria, and we find that we can typically get between 3.5 and 5.5 hours of playtime between charges – depending on brightness settings as well as the intensity of action in the game.


Obviously, Terraria is a game with a lot of possibilities in the way in which you can control things and in the demand for controls/buttons to get the job done. We are super happy to be able to take full advantage of the additional space on the control map provided by Steam Deck in order to help streamline your Terraria adventures and make controlling your character and world feel “just right”. Of course, all of these are just defaults that we think feel great - but everything is remappable in case you disagree and want to change things up!



CHANGES & BALANCE

GENERAL CHANGES

  • Summoned Minions, Sentries, and their projectiles should no longer harm critters
  • Updated Bundle of Balloons' sprite to reflect the items that went into it better
  • When placing a Graveyard-crafted version of a natural backwall directly next to a natural version of that wall, they should now merge seamlessly rather than having a large border between them
  • Skeletron now drops Healing Potions instead of Lesser Healing Potions. This same drop will also be applied to Deerclops, though Queen Bee will continue to drop her Bottled Honey instead.
  • Flinx Fur now requires less to research in Journey mode
  • All food (except Ale and Sake) now require less to research in Journey mode
  • All Biome crates, as well as Dungeon and Obsidian Lockboxes, now require less to research in Journey mode
  • Black and Pink Pearls are now more common when opening Oysters. Their sell value has been proportionally reduced.
  • Obsidian can now be mined by Pickaxes of 55% mining power or higher (for example, Gold Pickaxe)
  • When defeating the Wall of Flesh in Classic mode, it will now always drop 1 weapon and 1 emblem, like Expert treasure bags do
  • Heart and Star Statues are now twice as likely to be found in worldgen compared to other statues
  • Increased Web Shooter's range by 25%
  • Piranha Gun's Piranhas should now be much better able to keep up with rapidly moving enemies, assuming that enemy isn't teleporting or briefly becoming invulnerable
  • Changed Fairy Wing's recipe to only take 99 Pixie Dust instead of 100 (as 99 is the max stack for Pixie Dust)
  • Stained Glass now sells for a more reasonable value, compared to the gems used to make it
  • Optimized worldgen during the Desert chest placement stage
  • The Virtual Keyboard (in-game keyboard for Gamepad) is now used for IP/password entry and other Multiplayer text entry menus



DEERCLOPS

  • The Guide now has a hint about how to find Deerclops if the player has not yet defeated it
  • Deerclops' HP values now scale at a modified rate in Expert and Master, like other bosses. As a result, it will now have a lower maximum HP in both Expert and Master.
  • The above fix also addresses an issue where Deerclops' HP did not scale UP with increased player count in Expert/Master multiplayer games
  • Deerclops now only remains present in the Snow biome for 1 day when no players are present, instead of 3 days.
  • Deerclops' boss bar will disappear from the screen when suitably far enough away from it that the boss fight is not active. It will re-appear again once the fight is resumed.
  • Fixed an oversight where Deerclops had 0 defense
  • After defeating Deerclops, it now only has a 25% chance to spawn again naturally under proper conditions. This was previously 100% chance.
  • Deerclops now drops potions on death; in this case, regular Healing Potions like Skeletron.




NPC HAPPINESS CHANGES

  • Pylons now require a minimum of 2 NPCs under all conditions to be sold
  • The minimum required happiness for NPCs to sell Pylons is now more forgiving, with the number from 0.85 to 0.9 (the lower the number, the happier, with 1.0 being completely neutral). This means that it is now easier to make NPCs happy enough to sell a Pylon.
  • If an NPC is present in a hybrid biome (for example, the Hallowed Desert), and they like at least one of those biomes, then they will gain positive happiness from the biome they like. This will only work for a liked biome vs a neutral/disliked biome; it will not allow a neutral biome to overcome a disliked biome. This also does not override major unhappiness/housing invalidation due to being near the Corruption, Crimson, or Dungeon.
  • The number of NPCs you can have in a town before Crowded penalties begin to take effect has been increased by 1



BUG FIXES​

  • Fixed an issue where the Eyebrella Cloud positioned itself oddly when a player is sleeping
  • Fixed an issue where a number of blocks which should have blocked light were not blocking light
  • Fixed an issue where Honey and Dry Bombs could not be placed on Weapon Racks
  • Fixed an issue where Torch God's projectiles from Corrupt Torches generated snow dust
  • Fixed an issue where Chester's Smart Cursor outline did not rotate with him when in the air
  • Fixed an issue where walking Goldfish couldn't be Corrupted/Crimson'd like other Goldfish
  • Fixed an issue where Desert Tiger did not bounce on enemies correctly if your Journey time settings were paused or sped up
  • Fixed a bug with lava fishing gear incorrectly impacting fishing time
  • Fixed an issue where Obsidian Armor had white item rarity even though, for its tier, it should have been a higher rarity color
  • Fixed an issue where Lucy didn't speak if you cut down Palm Trees or Cacti
  • Fixed some issues involving Jungle Shrines and Giant Mahogany Trees, where overlapping generation could cause broken chests
  • Fixed an issue where Star-generating Cloak accessories did not properly sync their star generation in multiplayer
  • Fixed a multiplayer issue where Plantera's spore projectiles were not syncing properly
  • Fixed an issue where the Electrified debuff had an inaccurate and non-informative buff info text
  • Fixed an issue causing Elf Melter to use 2 ammo per use
  • Fixed an issue where Chain Guillotine's chain would vanish at some angles
  • Fixed an issue where some UI Control text was broken in Polish language settings
  • Fixed an text-based multiplayer crash
  • Fixed rare crash when certain NPCs spawn in droves

Terraria State of the Game - January 2022 https://terraria-servers.com/blog/383/terraria-state-of-the-game-january-2022/ https://terraria-servers.com/blog/383/terraria-state-of-the-game-january-2022/ Thu, 27 Jan 2022 20:40 CET

Greetings Terrarians!

We missed you over the holiday break - between all of the usual family and friends, running around, and with more or less all of the pertinent news items being covered off at the end of November, we decided to push off the State of the Game and just move on into the new year. So here we are, 2022 has kicked off with a bang. Week one saw Terraria winning the 2022 Labor of Love Steam Award as well as the launch of Journey's End on Nintendo Switch. Week two saw the re-imagined China Mobile version of Terraria winning TapTap's 2021 Game of the Year. Behind the scenes, things have been equally busy, with each development team hard at work on what is to come later this year. What all does that entail, you say? Let's get into the details!

Happy New Year!



PC - RE-LOGIC

TERRARIA - LABOR OF LOVE & TAPTAP GAME OF THE YEAR



You like us, you really, really like us! At long last, the loyalty and strength of the Terraria Community won out, delivering the 2021 Labor of Love Steam Award to Terraria! As in years' past, we were up against some pretty tough competitors, so this is no small feat. We cannot say what all this means to us, other than "a whole lot" - I think a couple of team members might have even teared up a little. Suffice to say, we cannot thank you all enough for your amazing support this year, in the past, and in what is going to be a bright future. You all are what this is all about. Bravo!

Hot on the heels of the Labor of Love Award, we found out that the China Mobile version of Terraria won TapTap's 2021 Game of the Year. Yeah, we know this isn't technically PC news, but we are excited nonetheless, and felt it fit right in next to the Steam Award. This is a fully revamped and reimagined version of Mobile in China - much more aligned to the version that the rest of the world enjoys. It is beyond exciting to see such a strong level of support and enthusiasm for this release of our beloved game, and we look forward to seeing what other milestones it can achieve! Big thanks to the team at DR Studios and XDN for their hard work in making China Mobile awesome again!

WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON?

Funny you should ask! Steam Deck optimizations are nearly complete - in fact, we are likely looking to push those live soon to be ready well in advance of Steam Deck launch in late February. Unless you are playing on Steam Deck, you will not see much difference in this build, outside of a handful of bug fixes, etc. Our team is beyond excited for this new platform, and we have had a ton of fun messing around to try and get things feeling and running "just right" in time for launch. As for what else we have going on - a lot of experimentation continues around the future. After all, we need to be sure that our labors are worthy of your love moving forward, right?

TMODLOADER NEWS - TML TEAM



Hello everyone!


We're making slow, but steady progress towards a jump from Alpha to Beta! Before everything else, we would like to announce to the forums the late news that we have a new API developer. Everyone give a warm welcome to Solxan - a long time contributor to 1.4 TML - whose help has been so immeasurable towards the progression of project, that he now has been given write permissions for the tModLoader repository.


We appreciate everyone's feedback and input during the Alpha phase thus far, and we hope that you have enjoyed a glimpse into what the future will hold for tModLoader. More to come on the Beta and how all of that will work as we get closer, but we do not want to get too far ahead of ourselves. For now, here is a bit more detail into what we are working on right now...


Our main development focus is currently on the following:


Almost done
- Entity spawn hooks & contextual sources (1.4_onspawn)
- Data-oriented rework of tiles (1.4_data_oriented_tiles)

Work in Progress
- A final redesign of audio systems (1.4_soundfix)
- Designing & setting up the environment for beta release cycles
- Topological sorting-based redesign of interface layers and world generation passes
- Post-merge improvements for the asset system redesign;

Of course, the TML 1.4 Alpha remains available for you to check out. Again, please keep in mind that this Alpha is primarily intended for developers as an audience - so play around with it at your own risk!

https://steamcommunity.com/app/1281930/discussions/0/3051733836205288319/


As always, you can keep track the current progress and such more in real time at tModLoader/tModLoader[github.com] (But note that the completion percentage doesn't mean anything, because issues and PRs don't have weights.)

Developers who are willing to contribute may do so by doing PRs to the tModLoader/tModLoader[github.com] branch. (See tModLoader/tModLoader[github.com])



PlayStation, XBOX, Nintendo Switch, Mobile - DR STUDIOS

Greetings, Terrarians! The team has mostly been focused on Switch Development and hotfixes... but we already have a keen eye on the future! What will that entail? Read on!


CONSOLE/SWITCH/MOBILE CONTENT PARITY DEVELOPMENT IS UNDERWAY

What's up next now that we have Switch Journey's End out of the door (pending a few more fixes, of course)? Why its the long-mentioned Content Parity Update! For years, non-PC players have followed behind on content, but these days will be coming to a close in 2022, as the DR team will be bringing content parity for everyone to fruition. Obviously, each platform will have its differences in features (touch for Mobile/Switch, etc), but as for the core content of the game itself, everyone will be on the same page. The timeline is still a bit TBD, but as soon as we have a better idea, we will share it. The plan is for this to come to all platforms at once... or as close as possible.

That means that we are aiming to bring 1.4.1, 1.4.2, and 1.4.3 to you all at once.

Now, to be clear, that does not include things like tModLoader or Steam Workshop-style pack support at this time. Those remain interesting ideas that the team will explore - but first things first, getting everyone to the same version of the core Terraria experience. We hope that you are just as excited as we are!

What's that, you want a quick teaser... well, alright then. To be clear, we have a lot of work ahead still, but without further ado we give you



Deerclops on Console and Mobile - an Early Sneak Peek

We are, of course, aware of some of the larger remaining bits (further KB+M work, Online+Splitscreen MP, etc) - and we still plan to get to these! Thanks so much for your feedback and reporting during the launch and since - with your help, we are able to fine tune and sort out issues to create a better Terraria experience for everyone!

You have done it again, Terrarians! Terraria is officially a Nominee for the 2021 Labor of Love Steam Award! On behalf of the entire Re-Logic development team, a sincere thank you to each and every Terrarian out there for your support.

Once again, we are up against some really big games for this award - but it sure would be fantastic to see us pull the win over the line during Terraria's 10th Anniversary Year.

We need all of your support: get your votes in now for Terraria to win the 2021 Labor of Love Award, encourage your friends to do so, spread the word and lets get it done!



10 years and counting. New updates rolling in even after "Journey's End", including the amazing DST Crossover and Steam Workshop support. Never a microtransaction. Never a paid DLC. We can earnestly say that at least as far as we are concerned, Terraria is the definition of a Labor of Love for our little team. This is it, friends, let's make it happen - Terraria = your Labor of Love winner for the 2021 Steam Awards.

Finally pulling in the win here would honestly mean a lot for the Re-Logic team and would be great recognition for how we view the game and each of you. No matter what, know that we appreciate each and every one of you and your support over the years. Terraria is not just a game to us, it is family.

So, we would once again humbly ask your votes and for your help in getting the word out to everyone you can think of to head on over and vote for Terraria!

To vote for Terraria, just head to the Steam Awards Voting Page (or just click the big VOTE button in the banner at the top of the page), find Labor of Love, pick Terraria and let's go!

The level of quality and quantity on the Terraria Steam Workshop just continues to climb - nearly 36,000 packs and worlds so far, which is just insane! If you have not checked out the Workshop yet, what are you waiting for?



TERRARIA WORKSHOP DEVELOPER'S CHOICE SELECTIONS
The team has unfortunately just been beyond slammed over the last month, so we will have to hold off on more Developer's Choice selections - likely until the new year. Sorry all!



WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON?

We are going to gratefully take the extra time allowed by the recent Steam Deck launch delays to take our Deck optimizations a bit further. More on that later, once we get a bit further clear from the 1.4.3 launch/fixes!


Beyond that, we will have to just continue to ask for your patience and trust in our process as we continue our own journey towards whatever lies ahead.



TMODLOADER NEWS - TML TEAM



Hello everyone!

Hello everyone!

We continue onward, working tirelessly towards the goal of tModLoader for Terraria 1.4. Recent noteworthy progress includes a move to the fresh .NET 6 with C# 10, and a repair of the current modded sound playback design (Thanks, ExterminatorX99!).

Our main development focus is currently on the following:
- A final redesign of audio systems (1.4_soundfix)
- Data-oriented rework of tiles (1.4_data_oriented_tiles)
- Topological sorting-based redesign of interface layers and world generation passes
- Post-merge improvements for the asset system redesign
- Side-experiments with bettering the overall API designs

Of course, the TML 1.4 Alpha remains available for you to check out. Again, please keep in mind that this Alpha is primarily intended for developers as an audience - so play around with it at your own risk!

PlayStation 4, XBOX ONE, Nintendo Switch - DR STUDIOS

Greetings, Terrarians! The team has mostly been focused on Switch Development... but we also took some time out to hammer away at some Console fixes! These will be in your hands soon - here is the list!

CONSOLE JOURNEY'S END FIXES & FEEDBACK

  • Optimize world generation speed
  • Mouse & keyboard refinements to better match PC

  • Fix clients having a delay in picking up items from host.

  • Fixed: Loot appearing at locked on enemy location


The team is feeling pretty good about this fix list, but we know a handful of bugs and issues are still wandering out there in the wild. We have most of these documented (again, the best way to make sure your issue is seen is to file a Bug Report in the TCF Bug Section by pressing the button below!)

[http//%27https]



NINTENDO SWITCH


NINTENDO SWITCH


We have what we hope will be an early holiday gift to our Switch fans: Terraria: Journey's End is in the final stages of development and submission, and…


We are pleased to reveal that the launch date will be January 4, 2022!


This build is a match to the fixes and content that PlayStation and Xbox had as of the start of November. Any relevant additional fixes listed for Consoles above - as well as any other Switch-specific fixes - will be submitted to Nintendo for release as quickly as possible.


So – we know the big question will be “why can it not come out before the end of the year if you are so close right now?” The reality there is that companies – including Nintendo – are nearing the end of year/holidays. As we all know, that means a lot of folks out on vacation and/or full company shutdowns. If we were to release - say in December - this would create a scenario where if there are any bugs or issues at all, they would essentially be impossible to fix (even if DR had a fix made instantly) until probably sometime in mid-January. It is just an unfortunate dynamic of this time of year. This gets the update out just as soon as possible in the new year, avoiding that risk.



While we are confident in this build, every launch has some bugs, and we just don’t want to put everyone in a situation where there are issues that everyone is powerless to address. Now, that said, the team will continue to test and fix in the meantime and go ahead and get whatever else they can find already in the queue. Hopefully, that makes sense to everyone, but we are happy to answer any questions that you might have.


MOBILE - DR STUDIOS


Hello everyone!

Mobile Terrarians, we are growing ever-closer to a return to development - this time, alongside our Console friends! The team is eagerly anticipating jumping headlong into bringing content parity to all platforms in the new year, we just need to get any needed Switch fixes out before we dive in. Not much longer now!

We have also been made aware of some issues impacting some players in regards to Android 11. The team will be looking into this shortly, and we will get any needed fixes out just as soon as possible!

For anyone not familiar with Jaiden Animations beyond the Terraria series, she is a talented and amazing artist and content creator with a very unique style all her own. Definitely worth checking out her YouTube channel, linked below:

She has had so much fun playing Terraria that we all got to talking about how cool it might be to do another "influencer-inspired" collection of Terraria merchandise, featuring Jaiden Animations... and so, here we are! Blending elements unique to Jaiden's style with everyone's favorite creepy robed figure - the Lunatic Cultist - this limited collection features an amazing hoodie, shirt, stickers, and a collectors pin (that you can get for free by picking up anything else!).

An Eye For An Eye: Terraria x Don't Starve Together Crossover Update Out Now! https://terraria-servers.com/blog/375/an-eye-for-an-eye-terraria-x-don-t-starve-together-crossover-update-out-now/ https://terraria-servers.com/blog/375/an-eye-for-an-eye-terraria-x-don-t-starve-together-crossover-update-out-now/ Thu, 18 Nov 2021 18:55 CET
As we revealed just a few short weeks ago, we have been hard at work in secret with our good friends at Klei Entertainment in order to bring the fans of both Terraria and Don't Starve Together a brand new free content update that faithfully pulls part of each game into the other. How will all of this work? What precisely do we have in store for our side of the crossover? Venture forth, brave Terrarians and learn more about what awaits you as The Constant collides with the world of Terraria!



A WORD OF INTRODUCTION ABOUT TERRARIA x DON'T STARVE TOGETHER

Long, long ago (ok it was about six months ago), the Terraria development team held an AMA on Reddit in celebration of Terraria's 10th Anniversary. During that AMA, one curious person posed a simple question to the team, which was answered directly by Cenx...



Well, it just so happens that our good friends at Klei Entertainment took the time to read that very AMA thread - and that got them to thinking that maybe there was something to this idea. Emails and pleasantries were exchanged, thoughts and ideas were shared, leaks were had (oops!), and a lot of friends were made. All of that to bring to both of our fanbases what we hope will come as a pleasant surprise free content update that releases for both games today!

Crossovers like this - between two of the top games on Steam in terms of players and reviews - are usually either uncommon or very limited or both. Our two teams took a different path, seeing this as a passion project - one that needed to do justice to each game and present and authentic experience for both fanbases. It has been amazing to watch the collaboration, the ideas just flowing and the shared fandom for each others' work. Relationships were forged here that we certainly hope will last for a very long time.

We have done our very best to summarize both side of this amazing crossover collaboration below - in the hopes that each fanbase will take the time to check out and enjoy the content from their favorite game in the other and vice versa. Thanks as always to the fans - your support truly makes things like this so much fun to work on. Cheers!

So, without further ado, we give you...



These update notes will cover all of the following:
TERRARIA'S SIDE OF THE CROSSOVER

DON'T STARVE TOGETHER'S SIDE OF THE CROSSOVER

TERRARIA x DON'T STARVE TOGETHER MERCHANDISE & STEAM POINTS SHOP ITEMS



THE CONSTANT - A DON'T STARVE INSPIRED WORLD SEED

The team debated long and hard about the best way to bring the gameplay dynamics of Don't Starve Together into Terraria in a fun and clever way. Rather than having a standalone "event" (as we did with Dungeon Defenders 2), we decided to utilize the World Seed functionality present in Journey's End to create a more holistic Don't Starve x Terraria experience. What awaits you should you dare to explore The Constant?



Don't Starve Inspired Shaders and Lighting



Stay in the Light! Total Darkness is Hazardous to your Health!



Feed your Hunger with Tasty Food... or Face the Consequences!

Don't Starve Inspired Worldgen

Higher Drop Rates for Don't Starve Inspired Items

To explore this new way to play Terraria, Don't Starve Together style, simply enter "The Constant" as your world seed upon creating a new world. Good luck, Terrarians!



DEERCLOPS - CLIPPING & CLOPPING, HERE COMES A STOMPING!



What adventure would be complete without a worthy foe to battle? Not this one, that's for sure! Our team has always loved the Deerclops in our plays of Don't Starve Together, so we immediately gravitated towards adding it as our featured boss battle for this crossover. We targeted this boss for mid/late Pre-Hardmode so that it would be accessible to as many players as possible. Make sure you check out his super-cool theme music - provided by Klei themsevles and inspired from Deerclops' theme in Don't Starve!

You can summon this terrifying foe in the cold climate of the Ice Biome. What awaits you in this fight? Well... you will have to wait and see for yourselves!



DON'T STARVE TOGETHER INSPIRED ITEMS

What Terraria update would be complete without an array of new items to discover and use? We have added over 25 items lifted from or inspired by Don't Starve Together content. These range from new pets to weapons to vanity and more! These can drop on any world, but players will find a higher drop rate on worlds using the DST "The Constant" seed!


New Tools & Weapons - Including Lucy the Axe


New Pets & Summons


Chester - A Pet that Functions As a Piggy Bank



TERRARIA 1.4.3 FULL CHANGELOG


New Content and Changes
Added a Don't Starve themed seed
- Play with Don't Starve-inspired shaders and lighting
- Complete darkness is now dangerous to your health
- Players will need to eat or face hunger and eventual starvation

  • Changed the SFX of a number of some newer Summoning and Magic weapons, so that they are a bit more representative of the attack itself
  • Updated, added to, and pruned dozens of entries from an inaccurate and outdated list of homing projectiles that the Lunatic Cultist has damage resistance against
  • Fixed a rare bug with some minions that could make them despawn
  • Fixed some issues with certain sentry minions which could result in desync for players joining after they had been summoned
  • Fixed an issue where Celestial Starboard did not draw/make dust properly in reverse gravity
  • Fixed an issue with some Rocket projectiles, resulting in a number of silent and not so silent crashes
  • Fixed a subtle issue where certain items were a different color in the hotbar than they were in the inventory
  • Fixed a bug where Boulders and Rolling Cacti qualified as Ranged items eligible of dealing Frostburn if you wore the Frost Armor
  • Fixed an issue where Smooth Marble Blocks didn't merge with dirt, ash, or frozen slime blocks (despite merging with most other blocks)
  • Fixed an issue where some of the newer campfires didn't have Smart Cursor outlines
  • Fixed an issue preventing Honey Pit microbiomes from spawning in the Jungle
  • Fixed a bug where Thorns-effects hit Empress of Light at an extremely rapid rate
  • Fixed an issue where Light Dynasty Walls showed an inaccurate teal map color
  • Fixed an issue where some config settings are reset every time an update or hotfix occurs.



TERRARIA 1.4.3 UPDATED DEDICATED SERVER AND RESOURCE PACK FILES







DON'T STARVE TOGETHER UPDATE HIGHLIGHTS

For the DST Team, we absolutely knew that if we were going to do this crossover any justice we absolutely had to bring a boss (or two?) to the Constant. And, of course, we can't miss the opportunity to put our spin on a bunch of their coolest items.



Eye Wonder
Somewhere in the game world, survivors may come across the mysterious Terrarium setpiece which will allow players to encounter the Eye of Terror boss, (Terraria's Eye of Cthulu - as seen through the lens of the Constant) complete with its own Terraria inspired theme music.

For our seasoned survivors, the Twins of Terror can be summoned for an added challenge. Each boss has its own unique eye-catching equipment item, and we've also added new statues of these bosses to show off your triumphs.



Peep this
We've added a spect-ocular new critter for you to watch over, a new food item to fulfill your survivor's dairy needs, and we have a couple of new crockpot recipes for you to feast your eyes on as well.



Constant Style
We have introduced several Terraria item skins into Don't Starve Together as well as a 3 piece character set inspired by Terraria's traveling merchant. Exclusive to the "An Eye for an Eye" update, these skins are definitely out of this world. These item skins cannot be purchased and can only be woven with spool. I hope you have been saving up!



Get 'em while they're hot!
Of course, we can't have a bunch of new skins without giving some away, so for a limited time log in to receive the Terrarized chest with 6 free elegant skins! Yep, 6. This login bonus chest will be available for all players to claim until our next update in December.





TERRARIA x DON'T STARVE TOGETHER STEAM POINTS ITEMS & MERCHANDISE

We worked hand-in-hand with our partners at Klei to put together some Steam Points Shop items as well as a handful of crossover-themed merchandise in celebration of this occasion!

TERRARIA x DON'T STARVE MERCHANDISE

Greetings Terrarians!

One of our favorite holidays approaches - Halloween! We don't know about you, but between the decorations, costumes, parties and more, it is just such a fun time of year. We hope that each of you gets a bit of time to indulge your spookier side and to maybe enjoy a handful of tricks or treats. Speaking of, we have a full candy pail of both to hand out for this month's State of the Game... so step right up, ring the doorbell, and let's see what horrific surprises await Terrarians everywhere!



PC - RE-LOGIC

SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES - CROSSOVER WITH DON'T STARVE TOGETHER REVEALED!





In case you missed the big reveal last week, we are doing the second major crossover update in the history of Terraria - this time with the long-running hit indie survival game, Don't Starve Together! Our good friends at Klei Entertainment have been hard at work in parallel with the team at Re-Logic in order to make both sides of this crossover worthy of the fanbases - and authentic to the gameplay - of each of these amazing titles. As you can tell from the above gifs, we are swapping terrifying foes. What else might be making the journey to DST and vice versa? Well... you will have to wait just a bit longer to find out. Stay vigilant, Terrarians, for life in The Constant can be quite harsh indeed!



TERRARIA IS 50% OFF DURING THE STEAM HALLOWEEN SALE!

[http//%27https]

Excited about the upcoming crossover? No better time to pick up a copy of Terraria for yourself - or as a treat for a friend - than right now! For the duration of the Steam Halloween Sale, Terraria will be half off! Click the banner above to head to our Steam Store Page and grab yours now!



STEAM WORKSHOP NEWS



Click the banner above to check out the Terraria Workshop!

The level of quality and quantity on the Terraria Steam Workshop just continues to climb - over 30,000 packs and worlds so far, which is just insane! If you have not checked out the Workshop yet, what are you waiting for?



TERRARIA WORKSHOP DEVELOPER'S CHOICE SELECTIONS
As in the past, we are gathering up our possible selections that we will reveal in a future State of the Game!



WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON?

We have a few Game Jams that are a bit on hold while we wrap up the collaboration with Don't Starve Together and the Steam Deck optimizations. The team is quite excited to delve back into these experiments soon!


So, for now, we will have to just continue to ask for your patience and trust in our process as we continue our own journey towards whatever lies ahead.



TMODLOADER NEWS - TML TEAM



Hello everyone!

The work with and on the tModLoader 1.4 Alpha on Steam continues (thanks for all your feedback and help thus far!) - you can click the link below to find out more. Again, please keep in mind that this Alpha is primarily intended for developers as an audience - so play around with it at your own risk!

https://steamcommunity.com/app/1281930/discussions/0/3051733836205288319/


As always, you can keep track the current progress and such more in real time at tModLoader/tModLoader (But note that the completion percentage doesn't mean anything, because issues and PRs don't have weights.)

Developers who are willing to contribute may do so by doing PRs to the tModLoader/tModLoader branch. (See tModLoader/tModLoader)



PlayStation 4, XBOX ONE, Nintendo Switch - DR STUDIOS


XBOX & PLAYSTATION


Greetings, Terrarians! Last time we checked in, we were just about to release Journey's End for Xbox and PlayStation. What a month it has been since then! Let's take a moment to check in on progress made on your feedback and bug reports - as well as a glimpse into what lies ahead!

CONSOLE JOURNEY'S END FIXES & FEEDBACK

HOTFIX #1 - OCTOBER 1, 2021- Release v1.4.0.5.4.2
  • Fixed Syncing Files Bug



HOTFIX #2 - OCTOBER 7, 2021 - Release v1.4.0.5.4.3, Build 759
  • Fixed autosave bug
  • Fixed the black screen sync bug
  • Fixed a crash when fighting Empress of Light
  • Fixed a crash after long play times
  • Fixed a crash in very old world saves
  • Fixed hotbar navigation affecting player movement
  • Fixed housing query controller bindings (Players will have to go into settings and rechoose from Classic, Advanced or Simplified again or bind the Housing Query setting)
  • Fixed research not consuming the held item stack
  • Fixed mouse conflicting in split screen pause menu
  • Fixed PS4 offscreen mouse cursor
  • Fixed PS4 trophy for Empress of Light
  • Added shoulder combo hint on screen
  • Added more controller bindings on screen
  • Added safe region settings in game
  • Added support for PS4 touchpad button
[/i]
[/list]




HOTFIX #2 - OCTOBER 19, 2021 - Release v1.4.0.5.4.4, Build 765

  • "Classic" scheme has been changed to be the closest match Red's Pick from the Console 1.3 Era (though it retains the ability to remap/add all of the new functions available with 1.4)
  • D-Pad Cursor Snap feature from RL/PW can be achieved by binding dpad to Grid Snap (see video below)
  • D-Pad Hotbar feature from RL/PW can be achieved by binding the four dpad directions to Dynamic Hotbar 1-4 (see video below)
  • Grapple is now bound to B again, along with Interact- Interact may be bound to whatever button players have assigned for Secondary Fire or Grapple, but not any others in order to avoid numerous conflicts and edge case issues.
  • Fixed an issue where the system was wrongly capping the maximum number of worlds at 10, but the UI was not recognizing this cap. The world/map cap is now 30 as originally intended, and the UI will enforce this (no New button if you have 30 or more worlds)
  • Fixed an issue with not being able to add more offline players to splitscreen on PS4
  • Fixed the mouse scroll wheel issues on PS4 and Xbox
  • Fixed lag spikes caused by the growth of Pumpkins

  • Fixed time being frozen in non-journey worlds when joining a MP session from the tutorial
  • Fixed the Angler's quests not being updated for Clients in a MP session
  • Fixed treasure bags only being dropped for one person in MP or Split screen
  • Fixed Dungeon Casters and other Projectile weapons' VFX not showing in the left hand side of the world
  • Fixed Geodes not being able to be thrown on the ground to open them
[/i]
[/list]



The team is feeling pretty good about the state of things after the patch from last week, but we know a handful of bugs and issues are still wandering out there in the wild. We have most of these documented (again, the best way to make sure your issue is seen is to file a Bug Report in the TCF Bug Section by pressing the button below!)

[http//%27https]




NINTENDO SWITCH



In parallel, the team at DR is hard at work on the nuances required to get Terraria: Journey's End out on Nintendo Switch. The good news behind the scenes is that all of the fixes we just implemented for Xbox and PlayStation will be there on day one for Switch players - definitely a win-win there for everyone! Of course, we are sure you want to take a glimpse at what might be going on right? Well... here's a few snaps from recent testing - Moon Lord dying, his Bestiary Entry, and a bit of touch mining. (Before anyone asks, I like to play with as much space as possible, so I shunk/zoomed my UI pretty small - but this is all adjustable)








In terms of timing, we are starting to hone in on what things will look like. We are confident in that the game will be submitted to Nintendo this year. When or not we see a launch to players will really come down to the results of that submission process - amidst the complications of the impending Holidays. We want to be sure to get it out as quickly as possible to players, but also in a timeline that allows us to be able to quickly respond to any launch issues, as we did with Xbox and PlayStation. We expect to be able to share more detail on this very soon - but as always, we want to be 100% certain of things before giving dates. Stay tuned!



MOBILE - DR STUDIOS


Hello everyone!

Mobile Terrarians, we are growing ever-closer to a return to development - this time, alongside our Console friends! The team is eagerly anticipating jumping headlong into bringing content parity to all platforms in the new year, we just need to get Switch out and stable first. Not much longer now!


We have also been made aware of some issues impacting some players in regards to Android 11. The team will be looking into this shortly, and we will get any needed fixes out just as soon as possible!


TERRARIA: JOURNEY'S END MOBILE BUG REPORTS
[forums.terraria.org]


Thanks as always for the honor and trust you give us each month to work on Terraria - it is not a responsibility that we take lightly, and we look forward to bringing more amazing things to you all as we move forward.



COMMUNITY

Here's the latest and greatest happenings on the Community side of things. Thanks as always for being the most engaged and awesome gaming Community ever!

TERRARIA MERCHANDISE UPDATES

We still have a handful of partnerships and products that remain under wraps, but that we will be revealing just as soon as the time is right - our plan is to have a LOT more out for the holidays. That said, what better time than the State of the Game to check in on news from our existing partners as well as to shine a light on some other things that are in the works?

HALLOWEEN-THEMED TERRARIA MERCHANDISE OUT NOW!

[terraria.shop]

Our fantastic partners over at Vidglo (https://terraria.shop/) have been hard at work on some new offerings for the Fall/Winter season. This includes the recently-released Halloween 2021 Collection!

ANIMEGAMI FOREST BIOME HIGH-END COLLECTIBLE RESIN STATUE PREORDERS UNDERWAY



A few weeks ago, preorders began for this amazing one-of-a-kind super high-end collectible resin statue from Animegami Studios! To be clear, this is a very high-end piece that is intended for the hardcore Terraria fan - and may not be for everyone. That said, our good friends at AGS have done what they can to enhance the affordability via an array of interest-free payment plans that spread out the cost over time.

Greetings Terrarians!

Fall is nearly upon us, as 2021 turns towards its latter stages. We have always figured that the final few months of this year would be an intense and fantastic time for Terraria and Terrarians, and the reality is lining up with that quite well. From Xbox/PlayStation getting Journey's End in a week to ongoing work on Switch to a wide array of new merchandise items and much more - 2021 may be winding down, but Terraria is just getting started! We have a ton to go over this month, so let's jump right in!



PC - RE-LOGIC

PLAYING AROUND WITH STEAM DECK



Recently, we were fortunate enough to receive one of the early waves of development hardware for Steam Deck. Terraria runs so well already on this amazing new platform, it is so customizable and opens the door for all new control schemes and more - in fact, the team is already looking for ways to further optimize the experience. This will take the form of a small upcoming PC update in order to optimize the controls, etc. in time for Steam Deck launch. We cannot wait for everyone to experience Terraria on Steam Deck - it really is a fantastic device for playing our game.



STEAM WORKSHOP NEWS



Click the banner above to check out the Terraria Workshop!

The level of quality and quantity on the Terraria Steam Workshop just continues to climb - nearly 30,000 packs and worlds so far, which is just insane! If you have not checked out the Workshop yet, what are you waiting for?



TERRARIA WORKSHOP DEVELOPER'S CHOICE SELECTIONS
As in the past, we are gathering up our possible selections that we will reveal in a future State of the Game!



WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON?

The team is taking a bit of a break from the Game Jams to work on the small Terraria PC update mentioned above in the Steam Deck news. We are looking forward to diving back into our latest Jam with both feet once we have that all squared away. It is a pretty cool second concept, and we are really enjoying how it is turning out.


So, for now, we will have to just continue to ask for your patience and trust in our process as we continue our own journey towards whatever lies ahead.



TMODLOADER NEWS - TML TEAM



Hello everyone!

As we shared previously, the tModLoader 1.4 Alpha is out now - you can click the link below to find out more. Do keep in mind that this Alpha is primarily intended for developers as an audience - so play around with it at your own risk! :)

https://steamcommunity.com/app/1281930/discussions/0/3051733836205288319/


As always, you can keep track the current progress and such more in real time at tModLoader/tModLoader (But note that the completion percentage doesn't mean anything, because issues and PRs don't have weights.)

Developers who are willing to contribute may do so by doing PRs to the tModLoader/tModLoader branch. (See tModLoader/tModLoader)



PlayStation 4, XBOX ONE, Nintendo Switch - DR STUDIOS


XBOX & PLAYSTATION


Greetings, Terrarians! One week ago, we revealed the launch date for Journey's End on PlayStation and Xbox - leaving us one week out from this amazing update being in your hands!


In case you missed it, Terraria: Journey's End is coming to PlayStation and Xbox on September 30th!


The team is eagerly anticipating the launch, and we hope that each and every one of you enjoy the fruits of our labors over the past several months. We have really enjoyed working on this update and thank you as always for entrusting us with the opportunity. It is not a responsibility that we take lightly!


Of course, the team will be on full alert and standby for any bugs or issues that arise at launch - so be sure to use the Bug Report process that we will share in the launch day post if you encounter any issues!



NINTENDO SWITCH



The team is continuing to chip away at the extra work needed to bring Journey's End to Nintendo Switch! What all does that entail? Mostly it has to deal with the specific features and scenarios that the Switch presents. Things such as


UI differences - Docked vs Undocked, etc.
Further Performance Optimization
Touch Controls Optimization, including the hybrid control styles dictated by Switch
All of the specific platform-required stuff
etc.



We do not have a precise update on timing to give you just yet. Give us a bit longer to be sure that things continue to stay on track and on schedule - we certainly do not want to give you any timing estimates that we are not confident to hit! That said, as of today, everything is very much going well and remains on time.



MOBILE - DR STUDIOS


Hello everyone!

Hang in there, our Mobile friends - your time in the spotlight will come again soon enough. As you will see above, we are getting ever-closer to that console release, after which we will be entering the era of "Parity" where we are going to be pushing for a world where all Terrarians are on the same version.

We have also been made aware of some issues impacting some players in regards to Android 11. The team will be looking into this shortly, and we will get any needed fixes out just as soon as possible!

Greetings Terrarians!

Here's the latest and greatest happenings on the Community side of things. Thanks as always for being the most engaged and awesome gaming Community ever!

TERRARIA MERCHANDISE STORE HUB


The merchandise hub has a few new items added over the past month... and there are a lot more coming very soon! Big plans here for the 2021 Holiday season - so this is a place you will want to watch for all of your gift-giving (or rewarding yourself :terraria: ) needs!

[terraria.org]

Click the banner above to head to http://terraria.org/store now!​

TERRARIA MERCHANDISE UPDATES

We still have a handful of partnerships and products that remain under wraps, but that we will be revealing just as soon as the time is right - our plan is to have a LOT more out for the holidays. That said, what better time than the State of the Game to check in on news from our existing partners as well as to shine a light on some other things that are in the works?

ANIMEGAMI FOREST BIOME HIGH-END COLLECTIBLE RESIN STATUE PREORDERS UNDERWAY



A few weeks ago, preorders began for this amazing one-of-a-kind super high-end collectible resin statue from Animegami Studios! To be clear, this is a very high-end piece that is intended for the hardcore Terraria fan - and may not be for everyone. That said, our good friends at AGS have done what they can to enhance the affordability via an array of interest-free payment plans that spread out the cost over time.

[animegami-studios.com]
Click the image above to check out the details and to preorder the Forest Biome Resin Statue!



SKYLAND ARTS LIMITED EDITION TERRARIA FIGURES - SERIES 1A PREORDERS NEARLY DONE!



The response to this Kickstarter-as-preorder campaign could not have been stronger! Terrarians everywhere have spoken loudly with their support here - blowing away the $10,000 campaign goal to the tune of over $250k in preorders! Our partners at Skyland are now hard at work with lining everything up to get these out to everyone in the near future. Once we have an update on a specific timeline for delivery, we will get that to you! For now, we would refer everyone here:

SKYLAND ARTS TERRARIA FIGURES SERIES 1A PRODUCTION UPDATE

Missed your chance? Not to worry, Skyland has left things open for a bit longer via a "Late Order" system that you can check out below!


LATE PREORDER SKYLAND ARTS LIMITED EDITION TERRARIA FIGURES - SERIES 1A HERE![www.hiveinteractive.net]



HALLOWEEN-THEMED TERRARIA MERCHANDISE COMING VERY SOON!

[terraria.shop]

Our fantastic partners over at Vidglo (https://terraria.shop/) have been hard at work on some new offerings for the Fall/Winter season. The first of those to roll out (available very soon!) will be the Terraria Halloween Collection - which you can see in the sneak peek above!

We will update the Merch Hub[terraria.org] the instant these are available, and you can keep an eye on https://terraria.shop/ as well so that you know the instant these are released!



JOIN THE TERRARIA DISCORD SERVER

[discord.gg]

We are thrilled that 1.4 update is finally coming to PlayStation and Xbox! If you are not already involved in the Terraria community then join the official Terraria Discord server to recruit allies to join your world, discuss all things Terraria, participate in events with prizes, and so much more.


We host daily events in the Terraria Discord[discord.gg] server where you can win exclusive Terraria merchandise in our custom Terraria Prize Shop. Our official activities range from Terraria trivia to art events where the community votes for the winner!


The Terraria Discord[discord.gg] server is the central hub to chat live with your fellow Terrarians so please stop by and introduce yourself if you have not done so already.



Until next time, Terrarians - we hope you have an amazing month, and we look forward to bringing you the latest and greatest next time!

WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON?

Game jams keep on jamming on! We finished up our first jam project and are off onto another very different experiment at this time. The entire process has been a lot of fun and immensely helpful towards exploring ideas, building skills, and improving on how we work together. All of these things will pay huge dividends down the road!

So, for now, we will have to just continue to ask for your patience and trust in our process as we continue our own journey towards whatever lies ahead.

PlayStation 4, XBOX ONE, Nintendo Switch - DR STUDIOS


XBOX & PLAYSTATION


Greetings, Terrarians! August 25th was yesterday, and what a day it was. Why, you ask? Well, yesterday we officially pressed the submission buttons for Terraria: Journey's End on PlayStation and Xbox! Now, we invite all of you to anxiously wait on Sony and Microsoft to complete their review process, after which we will be ready to turn this amazing update over to all of you!


We wish we could be more exact and give you a launch date. However, the review process is not all that predictable in terms of how long it takes, what might need to be addressed, etc. in each submission. Rest assured that when we hear something, we will let everyone know just as soon as we can.


This is the final stretch folks - thanks so much for your patience thus far!



STORIES FROM TESTVILLE


Performance checking with Pumpkin Moon? Child's Play! Let's add in a Destroyer!


Ok, sure... but now do it in Splitscreen (seriously, do not try this at home kids!)

Work is officially underway on bringing the awesomeness of Journey's End to Nintendo Switch. We do not have an exact time to give you just yet, but here's a screenshot of Zenith doing its thing on Switch! Once we get a bit deeper in, we will have an update on timing for you. Stay tuned!

COMMUNITY

Greetings Terrarians!

Here's the latest and greatest happenings on the Community side of things. Thanks as always for being the most engaged and awesome gaming Community ever!

TERRARIA MERCHANDISE STORE HUB


As we have brought on more and more amazing merchandise partners over the last two years, it became apparent to us that we would need some sort of centralized "hub" from which Terrarians could easily see and browse all that is available. We have been working on this behind the scenes, and we are happy to share that our first version of this is now available on Terraria.org!

[terraria.org]

Click the banner above to head to http://terraria.org/store now!​

This will be your one-stop-shop where we will have all of the currently-active Terraria merchandise on display. If you see something that you like, simply click on the item and you will be whisked away to the storefront of whichever partner makes that particular product so that you can check out further details and complete your purchase.

Everything is laid out by category and easily navigated via the index and/or search. Please let us know any feedback that you might have so that we can make this experience the best that it can be!

We will be keeping this up to date and continuously adding to the offerings available here - so this is a page you will want to bookmark and check often!



TERRARIA MERCHANDISE UPDATES

We still have a handful of partnerships and products that remain under wraps, but that we will be revealing just as soon as the time is right - our plan is to have a LOT more out for the holidays. That said, what better time than the State of the Game to check in on news from our existing partners as well as to shine a light on some other things that are in the works?

SKYLAND ARTS LIMITED EDITION TERRARIA FIGURES - SERIES 1A PREORDERS UNDERWAY!



Our partners at Skyland Arts have at long last rolled out preorders for the first wave of Terraria Collectible Figures. Three figures are included in this first set: Dryad, Shadow Armor, and Eye of Cthulhu (with removable iris, to expose its second phase). Skyland does not have its own digital storefront, so they have decided to utilize Kickstarter as their preorder method. The up-front expenses have been paid, the tooling of the steel production molds has already begun, and the factory is ready to produce the figures. This pre-order campaign helps Skyland to judge how many of each figure to produce and ensures that every Terrarian gets the one that they want most!

To check out the purchase options and to place your order, click the link below or the figure images above to head on over to the Kickstarter page!

2) Development Team: Create and manage Discord bots and other development projects.
3) Event Team: Create and manage community events, create custom builds for sandbox games that can be used for parkour, pvp, and other community functions, suggest community events, and receive notification whenever there is an Affiliated community event.
4) Localization Team: Translate community content into multiple languages and help manage non-English social communities.
5) Moderator Team: Discuss community moderation, share moderation strategies, assist Affiliated communities with their server moderation.
6) Partnership Team: Recruit new Affiliated communities to join the TCT and evaluate communities looking to join the TCT.
7) Quality Assurance Team: Receive notification whenever their is a new game Beta application, report game bugs, and make game suggestions to community officials.
8) Stream & Video Team: Make video content for communities or stream for communities.
9) Trivia Team: Help make and review general Trivia questions that are used by communities in activities.
10) Writing Team: Create editorials for servers to share with their communities and the media.


Registration is now open for partnered and verified servers to join the TCT as an Affiliated community! You must be at least a moderator or admin for a server to apply to have the server join the TCT as an Affiliated community. To apply to become an Affiliated community please message @TCT Mod Mail and include the perma server link, your role in the server, and a brief explanation why you would like the server to join the TCT as an Affiliated community. There will be an interview process for partnered and verified servers to become an Affiliated community.

We look forward to helping many communities become as great as possible.



Until next time, Terrarians - we hope you have an amazing month, and we look forward to bringing you the latest and greatest next time!

We wanted to share the awesome news that the first three Collectible Terraria figures that we have teased in past State of the Game posts are now available for preorder! These amazing pieces were developed by our partners at Skyland Arts[www.skylandarts.com], and are the first in what we hope will be several waves of figures that Terraria fans will love to get their hands on!

Shadow Armor & Light's Bane




The ominous Eye of Cthulhu - with removeable lens to reveal its toothy grin

Again, these will be available for preorder on the Kickstarter page below for the next month or so. While these figures may appear at a later date at retailers, the only way to ensure that you get your hands on the figure(s) that you want is to get your preorder in now!

The entire Re-Logic team will be conducting an AMA on the r/Terraria Subreddit on May 17th, beginning at 10am Pacific Time. We will do our very best to have as many team members as possible answer each and every question (or at least the ones we have an answer for...). You will NOT want to miss out on this chance to ask the burning questions for the team.

TERRARIA TENTH ANNIVERSARY AMA WITH RE-LOGIC
(When the event is live, the text above will be a link to the thread on Reddit)

On top of that, be on the lookout for Re-Logic team members hanging out in Discord in the Terraria-Chat channel over the next couple of weeks - we have encouraged everyone on the team to take some time out (as they can) to actively hang out and enjoy the festivities! The link to our Discord Server is below!






It’s celebration time Terrarians!

Incredible to think that it has been 10 years since we set that initial version of Terraria out into the world. From humble beginnings to selling 35 Million copies across all platforms - it all started with a dream and some imagination.

Now it’s your turn to infuse Terraria with your own imagination. In honor of Terraria’s tenth anniversary, we’re having a contest where you get to show off your own creativity and how you envision Terraria. There are categories for all Terrarians, whether you play on PC, Console, Mobile, or even our new Stadia players.

We have a category for Steam Workshop Maps and Texture Packs, a category for Art, a category for Screenshots featuring in-game builds, and even a category for Other - anything that doesn't fit into the first three categories. You can choose to enter any category you'd like, so get your ideas ready, join us to celebrate, and dive in!

This contest will start on Terraria's Tenth Anniversary (May 16, 2021)
(when the contest is live, the banner above and the link above will take you to the contest page for more details)





We are currently working with a community artist on what we think will be an amazing - and amazingly fitting - work of art in celebration of Terraria turning ten. This will be revealed heading into the weekend of the anniversary itself. What will it be? Who is the artist? You will have to wait and find out!

Here is a hint - if you look at the art used in this Steam Event, you will see at least a snippet of this epic work of art. We will share the entire piece here once it is done!

(We are also working on a range of possibilities for everyone to be able to hang this amazing artwork on your walls, etc. - more on that as we have it)]]>
Unleash Your Creativity- Terraria 1.4.2 & Steam Workshop Support Launches Today! https://terraria-servers.com/blog/354/unleash-your-creativity-terraria-142/ https://terraria-servers.com/blog/354/unleash-your-creativity-terraria-142/ Mon, 29 Mar 2021 15:56 CEST


Greetings, Terrarians... and happy Terraria 1.4.2/Steam Workshop Support launch day!


That's right - at long last, we are able to provide an easy-to-use system and location for Terrarians everywhere to showcase their creative energies in all new ways. Starting today, everyone will be able to create, upload, share, download, and play a variety of types of game modifications within the vanilla Terraria game. Let's break down the new toys at your disposal!


NEW WAYS TO MODIFY THE CORE TERRARIA EXPERIENCE


WORLD UPLOADS




Have a really cool map that you want to share? The best Terraria golf course ever? Maybe an epic adventure map that would blow peoples' minds? This is your chance to share it with the world!



RESOURCE PACKS

Change how Terraria looks, sounds, and reads with custom Packs that can alter various aspects of the game. Resource Packs and alter one, two, or all three of the content types below:

Texture Packs


What if the Zenith were a giant banana? That doesn't sound too apeeling to us, but maybe its your thing - this is your chance to change up one, two, or maybe even all of the sprites in Terraria!

Music Packs


Want to change things up with the in-game soundtrack? Import your custom tunes via this very cool-sounding feature.

Language Packs


Feel like you could make a better translation - or a new one? Want to write your own custom dialogue for the NPCs? This is your lucky day!



Of course, if you want to take your modifications even further, impacting the core gameplay itself, you can take Terraria modding to the next level with the already-available tModLoader:






In order to help everyone learn how all of this works - both content users and content creators alike - our very own Leinfors hand-crafted the guide linked above. This is very comprehensive, covering every topic you could think of around how to get around and use these new features - both for Steam workshop and for our non-Steam players. We highly recommend that you check this out before getting started. This will always be linked at the top of our Steam Workshop Home Page as well via the "Learn More" Button.


These features are available to all PC Terrarians - whether you are on Steam or not - however, alongside these new toys comes Steam Workshop support for Terraria, giving players a place to showcase any amazing maps or Resource Packs that they have created for Terrarians everywhere to download and enjoy! Let's learn more, shall we?



STEAM WORKSHOP SUPPORT



That's right folks, we are embracing the wonders of Steam Workshop with this update in order to make Worlds and Resource Packs as accessible as possible to everyone. From within Terraria, you will be able to upload your creations to Workshop in order to share with other Terrarians everywhere!


Once a World or Resource Pack is uploaded to Terraria's Workshop, it will be there for other players to discover, subscribe to, and enjoy! Beyond that, using Workshop allows you to create and foster your own little community where you can discuss your creations and how they might be improved over time.

Features available on your Workshop page for each content item that you have uploaded include, but are not limited to:

  • A description page, which can be updated with a full description of your choosing
  • A dedicated discussion forum for your content
  • A comments page
  • A changelog page for updates you've made
  • A variety of metrics and rating system information for Workshop files
  • An option to change the name of the content (it uses the file name of the uploaded item by default)
  • Options to attach additional screenshots or even videos to demonstrate your content in action
  • A visibility toggle (the same as the visibility option you set when publishing)

Check out the new Terraria Steam Workshop by clicking the banner above - or by clicking the link below!



In addition, you can now easily find the Workshop any time you want by heading to the Terraria page in your Steam Library, clicking on Community Hub, and then clicking on "Workshop" in the top menu within the Hub.






DEVELOPER'S CHOICE

The Re-Logic team is celebrating this release by putting out a couple of Texture Packs created by our own artists, Jimmarn and Lazure. You can find these located in the "Developer's Choice" section of the workshop, which is a special curated part of the Workshop where the Re-Logic team will be hand-picking Worlds and Resource Packs that we feel are the best of the best over time and tagging them with the Developer's Choice flag, placing them in this special section.



This is definitely an honor that we hope that everyone will strive for - and we cannot wait to see what you all will create!






STEAM WORKSHOP - GETTING AROUND

Let's take a few moments to show you around the new Workshop - and then we will close with a very comprehensive Guide to all things Terraria Workshop written by our very own @Leinfors!


HOME PAGE

This is what it sounds like - the landing page for the Terraria Steam Workshop. You will find a few sections of interest here:

  • Top Bar navigation allows you to quickly move between Home Page - Items - Collections - Favorites/Subscribed Items - Discussions about Workshop
  • Below that, you will see two featured sections - one based on the most popular (most downloaded/rated) items and then another that is tied to the Developer's Choice section we mentioned above.
  • Right Sidebar (top) allows you to see your Workshop Files (content you have personally uploaded) as well as the most popular/top rated/most recent content
  • Right Sidebar (bottom) allows you to Browse all of the Terraria Workshop content via key terms/tags to help narrow your search. Note that on the home page, you can only select one tag, but on the Browse and other pages, you can select as many as you want to narrow down your search!
  • At the very bottom, you will see three tabbed lists for Most Popular, Most Subscribed, and Most Recent


BROWSE PAGE
The Browse Page allows for you to do what it says... browse the available content items in the Terraria Workshop. Each listing is displayed in a grid complete with the name of the content, the author, and an average user rating (1-5 Stars). You can also check out your favorites list... your friends' favorites/content... and even follow your favorite content creators.

As mentioned on the homepage, you will see the list of tags on the right side so that you can narrow down your search. We will be listening to community suggestions to improve this starter list over time as well.



Once you find and click on something that you might be interested in, you will be whisked away to the...

WORKSHOP CONTENT PAGE
Once again, this is precisely what it sounds like - the place where you can find out all there is to know about a specific piece of content prior to downloading.



Most of what is here is pretty self-explanatory. However, let's run it down:

  • Image pane shows the feature image the creator chose as well as any other screenshots, etc.​
  • Upper right shows the file size as well as creation date and any updates. You can also view any changelogs the author has shared here.​
  • Below the image pane, you can give the content a thumbs up/down, favorite/share, award it (Steam Points), add to a collection, or report it (the little Flag icon)​
  • Please familiarize yourself with the rules of what is and is not acceptable on Steam workshop​
  • Vulgar, offensive, etc. content will be removed. As will any reported content that violates any legal issues/copyrights/etc.​
  • Finally, we have the big green SUBSCRIBE button. Clicking this will allow you to download the content as well as sign you up for any future updates to this content.


Down below, you can leave comments on the content and interact with the author/creator.


Lots to go over there, to be sure - but those are the basics. There is really so much to know and learn here about how to create and use Workshop content on Terraria, we highly recommend that you check out Leinfors ' Guide linked below.



OTHER CHANGES IN THIS UPDATE
Other than the new customization features and Workshop support, we did have the time to squash a few more bugs within the core Terraria experience. That comprehensive list is shared below. Hopefully your "favorite" bug is there and will no longer haunt you. As always, if you run into any issues, please report them via the link below!

You did it everyone! Terraria is officially a Nominee for the 2020 Labor of Love Steam Award! On behalf of the entire Re-Logic development team, a sincere thank you to each and every Terrarian out there for your support.

Now we need your help to finish making this a reality by getting your votes in now for Terraria to win the 2020 Labor of Love Award!


2020 has brought a lot of insanity to all of us - but also one constant, and that is Terraria being in our gaming lives and releasing more amazing content.

10 years, from 250 items to over 5000. Never a microtransaction. Never a paid DLC. If any game defines the "Labor of Love", it is Terraria. This is it, friends, let's make it happen - Terraria = your Labor of Love winner for the 2020 Steam Awards.


Netting a win here would honestly mean a lot for the Re-Logic team and would be the perfect way to cap off what truly and fully has been our Labor of Love for nearly 10 years now. Terraria is not just a game to us, it is family.

So, once again, we earnestly ask for your support, your votes, and for your help in getting the word out to everyone you can think of to head on over and vote for Terraria!

To vote for Terraria, just head to the Steam Awards Voting Page (or just click the big VOTE button in the banner at the top of the page), find Labor of Love, pick Terraria and let's go!

Rounding Out the Journey: Terraria 1.4.1 is Here! https://terraria-servers.com/blog/349/rounding-out-the-journey-terraria-141-is-here/ https://terraria-servers.com/blog/349/rounding-out-the-journey-terraria-141-is-here/ Tue, 13 Oct 2020 19:07 CEST " class="img-fluid">

Greetings, Terrarians! Terraria 1.4.1 releases today for our PC players!


Welcome to launch day for Terraria 1.4.1 on PC! As we have alluded to in previous news items and spoilers around this update, Terraria 1.4.1 is primarily focused on adding in pieces that were not quite ready in time for the Journey's End launch date - along with more fixes, balance tweaks, and a few new tidbits that we decided to add along the way. Located below, you will find the full changelog for Terraria 1.4.1



So, what all does Terraria 1.4.1 contain? Here are some of the bigger topline tidbits of note - but again, refer to the full changelog for a more complete accounting of things.




VANITY CONTEST WINNER SETS



As promised, we have added the winning Vanity Sets from the Journey's End Vanity Design Contest! These turned out really well, and we are beyond excited to see these in game. Be sure to once again congratulate the winners and thank them for making such awesome designs possible!

- Plaguebringer
- Wandering Ronin
- The Timeless Traveler
- Floret Protector
- Capricorn
- Bonus winner: TV Head!


All six of these are craftable with pre-Hardmode materials of various sorts, so that all players can experience these awesome vanity sets! Thanks to everyone who participated and voted in the Vanity contest, and especially to our winners!


CREDITS





Who made all of this anyway? At long last, Terraria on PC has it's own credits! Upon defeating the Moon Lord for the first time, be sure to stay tuned for an awesome throwback credit sequence, including an exclusive never-before-heard music track! Want to see it again? You can access the Credits from the main menu at any time.


The Music Box (Journey's End) is now created by recording the Credits music sequence. Additionally, using it in a normal accessory slot will play the Credits sequence in-game, while using it in a social slot will only play the music.




NEW NPC - THE PRINCESS



How will you discover and unlock this regal companion? What does she do? You will have to explore and find out on your own!




NEW ACHIEVEMENTS



Who doesn't like Acheivements, right? Updated for the Journey's End era, we have included a handful of new goals for you to chase down!



NEW ITEMS



We have included a handful of new items - with several focused on filling out the early/pre-hardmode Summoner options. We are personally fans of the new Flinx-based Summoner gear.



VANITY OVERHAUL

Vanity Overhaul? What exactly do we mean here? Well - the way armors and vanity sets used to work was a bit limiting, particularly in regards to the way "back" items worked. So, we made it better! For just one example: why pick between showing Wings or a Cape, for example, when you can have both!


Armors and vanity items which draw on the back (backpacks, tails, wings, and capes) are now no longer mutually exclusive. This means that you can now have one of any of those four categories all displaying at the same time. Previously, only one of those could ever be visible at a time (for instance, if you had visible wings, you could not ever see a cape, backpack, or tail).

Here is a visual explaining what we mean:




Prior to Terraria 1.4.1: The use of visible wings prevented capes from being visible, while the use of capes prevented shields from being visible.



In 1.4.1, these elements no longer conflict with each other, and can be used together in various combinations

There are even more overhauls to the vanity system to explore, so be sure to check out the full changelog for all the juicy details!



QUALITY OF LIFE CHANGES

Beyond Bug Fixes, we always want to try and enhance the user experience as much as possible. Here are just a few of the ways we have explored doing so in Terraria 1.4.1:

  • The Journey Mode duplication menu has been overhauled, with the addition of several new filters to break up some of the larger categories
  • Additionally, the Misc option in the duplication menu should more properly encompass items that do not fall under any other category
  • Torch God now plays an Otherworldly track when that setting is toggled
  • Bestiary now indicates if a drop is Wave-based/if it only drops after a certain wave in Frost Moon and Pumpkin Moon
  • Plantero's Sombrero has made its triumphant return
  • Reorganized menu settings for resolution/fullscreen/windowed borderless to all use the same sub-menu, to reduce confusion
  • Updated FNA (Mac/Linux related)
  • RGB support is now available for SteelSeries game peripherals
  • Updated localization for all languages up to 1.4 (some 1.4.1 content may still be untranslated, and these translations will come in an upcoming hotfix)



BALANCE CHANGES


As you likely are aware, Terraria: Journey's End contained a ton of changes to balance across the entire progression of the game. As with any changes of this nature, everyone had thoughts and feedback. We invited everyone to weigh in on this robust discussion in our Official Balance/Feedback Thread on Terraria Community Forums - and you did not disappoint! With that feedback in hand - along with our own post-launch thoughts - we have made even more balance changes that we hope will bring things ever-closer to feeling "just right" for most folks. A little bit of everything has been impacted here, so we really encourage you to read up before you are surprised! :)

TERRARIA OFFICIAL SOUNDTRACK - JOURNEY'S END TRACKS ADDED!

Alongside Terraria 1.4.1, we have updated the Terraria Official Soundtrack with all of the Journey's End tracks - and some older favorites! There has never been a better time to pick up this collection of amazing tunes! The full OST is now updated on Steam, and all of the new tracks will be available on Spotify/iTunes/etc. in the very near future!



Of course, if you get or are addicted to the alternate tunes on the 05162020 World Seed, be sure to check out the Terraria: Otherworld Official Soundtrack as well!

We cannot wait to see your reactions as you dive in to all that this update has to offer, and we hope that you thoroughly enjoy our gift to you. It has been an amazing journey indeed... but we truly feel that this end is really just a new beginning for the amazing world of Terraria.

So, what awaits you in Journey's End? In case you missed our advance Terraria: Journey's End Changelog post last Thursday, we have linked it below for your reading pleasure. Also located in today's post are where and how to report bugs as well as other important information that you may find interesting.
