Greetings Terrarians!

Thanksgiving is here, and this is always a great time for our team to reflect on the earlier parts of the year as a reminder of just how blessed we are to have such amazing fans and for the opportunity to do what we do each and every day. This feeling is perhaps stronger this year than in the past, owing to the Labor of Love update - how it came about, how we built it, and your reactions since it was released. Starting 2022 with a Steam Award that you all voted to give us, being inspired by that to make a truly fan-focused update, and then interacting so much with the community to share ideas... what a year it has been! We know we say it all the time, but we are truly thankful for all of you out there. You make this fun and worthwhile, even after all this time. Heading into 2023, we are already looking forward to what Terraria 1.4.5 will have in store for everyone - and we hope you are as well. Enjoy the Holidays, Terrarians, and thank you so much for being who you are and for all of your support for our team!



PC - RE-LOGIC


TERRARIA - LABOR OF LOVE FIXES COMPLETE

Another month, another set of hotfixes for Labor of Love! You all have been really on the ball in getting us detailed and useful reports since launch. So much so that we have already released nine hotfixes since release! At this point, we feel like things are in a good place based on current reporting and our own observations. Thus, it is our plan to call 1.4.4.9 the "final" fixed version of Terraria 1.4.4 - meaning that the team can now turn its attention towards 1.4.5 and beyond.

Prior to that, however, the team will be taking a bit of time to spend time with friends, family, and probably a new game or three. Expect the news to be a bit light in the meantime... but we will be back at it soon enough with glimpses and spoilers into the latest and greatest in the world of Terraria!

Of course, feel free to keep those bug reports coming in. Be sure to use the Bug Report section on Terraria Community Forums for the best chance to be certain that your specific issue is not missed!

TCF BUG REPORTING FOR TERRARIA[forums.terraria.org]

Alternatively, you can report things in the LOL launch thread or on the pinned discussions here on Steam.

Nearly 70,000 packs and worlds so far?! You are missing out if you haven't taken the time to check out the Terraria Steam Workshop. At long last, we are back with our latest Developer's Choice selections! Check those out down below...

To reiterate as well, now that hotfixes are done, expect a period of focused attention on cleaning up some stuff. Feel free to flag anything you feel is concerning to help us in this effort.

If you can't beat the bees, join them - right?

I always thought there was something fishy about that guy...



WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON?

Nothing? Just fixes and more fixes... with maybe one half of one eye looking in the direction of discussing how we might best approach Crossplay.



TMODLOADER NEWS - TML TEAM



Hello everyone!

We've just about caught up to vanilla Terraria, version-wise, and have tML running well in the 1.4.4 era. We are actively discussing with the modding community on when to make the swap over to this latest version as the default/live version of tML. In addition to the "coming soon" 1.4.4 compatibility, several contributors are actively working on ways to bring new features to modders, which we will delve into at a later date. As always, we are more than happy to have more hands on deck getting these features accessible - so don't be shy if you feel like you could contribute!

As we look towards closing out our initial porting efforts for tML 1.4.4, our eyes are turning back to improving tML with some long overdue localization upgrades on the horizon. Stay tuned for more information on upcoming overhauls!



TMODLOADER STEAM WORKSHOP

The TML Steam Workshop has over 3200 mods already! 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!



WHAT'S NEXT FOR TML?

As we shared above, once we have successfully moved tML 1.4.4 over into the default/live space (along with any needed fixes), we will be turning our attention towards needed localization as well as some new potential features for modders. More to come on that once we get past the release of 1.4.4!

As always, you can keep track the current progress and much 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 was able to get Terraria 1.4.4.5 (along with some bonus fixes) out to everyone over the past month. We are also excited to reveal that we have submitted the second "wave" of Terraria fixes to first parties this morning. We expect this to roll out to players starting later today, as the various companies (Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, etc.) approve and release the update.

This will bring Console and Mobile back in line with the PC version at v1.4.4.9! What a great way to end the year!

Mobile Dedicated Server users - you will need to update to the 1.4.4.9 Dedicated Server > HERE[terraria.org]


Crossplay planning is also in full swing, and we feel pretty good and confident with where we have netted out in those discussions. Of course, having a great plan is only one part of a much larger and longer effort to try and make Terraria Crossplay happen. Once we are able to get a better sense for if our plan will be acceptable on the Microsoft/Sony/Nintendo/Apple/Google side of things, we will try to share as much about our approach as possible - and maybe even tease you with a spoiler or two.

Oh, and a lot depends on what goes into 1.4.5 and when it arrives as well - we can't have Crossplay without everyone being on the same version, after all!

Until next time, Console & Mobile friends - thanks for all of your love and support!

OTHER COMMUNITY NEWS
TERRARIA LABOR OF HALLOW'S EVE CONTEST FINALISTS AND COMMUNITY VOTING


All of the entries are in for the Labor of Hallow's Eve contest... and holy crap, you all blew us away with the sheer number and quality of the entries. It has taken us a few weeks to whittle down from nearly 1,000 entries to a list of semi-finalists, and then the Re-Logic team has taken the honors of picking our Category Winners. As a reminder, the winner of each category wins some fabulous prizes - and becomes a Finalist for the Grand Prize: a real-life Meowmere Sword!

The Grand Prize will be decided by Community Vote - so you will want to check out the thread below to see who won each Category and to see how to vote for the Ultimate Winner!

Happy Holidays, Terrarians!

2022 has been a heck of a year in the world of Terraria. We started off the year with the fantastic news that you all had voted us the winners of the 2021 Labor of Love Steam Award, later to be recognized in amazing fashion with the Labor of Love update release on all platforms at once - a first for Terrarians! We also saw the release of the first four issues/Book One of the Terraria Graphic Novel series alongside a ton of other cool merch. Topping it off, we shared the news a bit ago that Terraria 1.4.5 is coming your way in 2023... hopefully with Crossplay to come sometime after that. As always, we are beyond thankful for the loyalty and support that you all have shown us over the years. We do not take it lightly, and we can only hope that you feel that we have and will continue to do that support justice.

All that said, the Holiday Season is indeed upon us - and coming with that is the usual Holiday Shopping season! We have really made concerted efforts over the past 3-4 years to build out a pretty extensive line of Terraria products and merchandise for fans to pick up and enjoy... or to give as gifts to the other Terrarians in their lives. There have been several new additions to those offerings this year, and we are going to reveal even more in this post - just in time for the Holidays. So, consider this your 2022 Terrarian Holiday Shopping Guide - and if you are so inclined, take a look at what all there is on offer and maybe pick up something cool for yourself or a loved one. Happy Holidays!


TERRARIA MERCHANDISE STORE HUB ​

Throughout the year, best place to be able to see all of the available Terraria merchandise listed in one place is our Terraria Merchandise Hub (https://terraria.org/store).

Terraria 1.4.5 is Coming in 2023 - including Terraria x Dead Cells! https://terraria-servers.com/blog/405/terraria-145-is-coming-in-2023-including-terraria-x-dead-cells/ https://terraria-servers.com/blog/405/terraria-145-is-coming-in-2023-including-terraria-x-dead-cells/ Mon, 07 Nov 2022 17:30 CET

Greetings, Terrarians!

We are very happy to share that Terraria has made its way into the insanely good metroidvania hack-and-slash roguelite, Dead Cells! As always, we are thrilled to collaborate with our fellow top-notch indie developers out there.

If you want the full scoop behind the new Terraria content in Dead Cells, check out the details of their update (that landed today) below!

Click the Banner above to check out everything there is to know about the latest Dead Cells update!


Check out the trailer for today's Dead Cells update, including Terraria x Dead Cells!


Starfury wielded by The Guide in Dead Cells!



Wait a second, we hear you saying... shouldn't a crossover have content on both sides? Why indeed it should! That's why we are revealing today that Terraria 1.4.5 - at least part of which will include Terraria x Dead Cells content - will be coming your way in 2023!

Work on this update will begin in earnest when the team starts work in the new year - and after all of the needed hotfixes for 1.4.4 are completed. What all will Terraria 1.4.5 contain? Well, you will just have to wait and see when the time comes.

We hope this will help to get everyone hyped for the end of the year and what is to come in 2023 (which will also hopefully be the year of Crossplay... cross your fingers)!

Stay tuned for more information in the weeks and months ahead!]]>
Terraria State of the Game - October 2022 https://terraria-servers.com/blog/404/terraria-state-of-the-game-october-2022/ https://terraria-servers.com/blog/404/terraria-state-of-the-game-october-2022/ Thu, 27 Oct 2022 20:03 CEST

Greetings Terrarians!

After a month off - I mean what would the "State of the Game" have been, "Labor of Love is out, go play it instead of reading this"? - we are back once again with the latest and greatest news from the world of Terraria. It has been a month of bug fixing for all of our teams and that work should continue for at least a bit longer. What's next after that? Well, we have already had a few meetings about Crossplay strategy... so that's a thing. Beyond that, you will have to wait and see what we might have in mind in regards to what direction our team decides to head. For now, let's head out for some spooktacular treats - and maybe only a few tricks. Happy Halloween!



PC - RE-LOGIC


TERRARIA - LABOR OF LOVE GETS FIXES (BOI)

On the Re-Logic side of development, we have been solely focused on hotfixes for the Labor of Love update. In less than a month, we have managed to get seven hotfixes out to everyone, and we are already underway with number eight. As always, we greatly appreciate your detailed reports and your patience as we sort out the inevitable bugs that crawl out of the woodwork with any update release.

While we certainly are keeping an eye out for bugs everywhere we can. Be sure to use the Bug Report section on Terraria Community Forums for the best chance to be certain that your specific issue is not missed!

TCF BUG REPORTING FOR TERRARIA[forums.terraria.org]

Alternatively, you can report things in the LOL launch thread or on the pinned discussions here on Steam.



STEAM WORKSHOP NEWS



Click the banner above to check out the Terraria Workshop!

Closing in on 68,000 packs and worlds so far, you are missing out if you haven't taken the time to check out the Workshop yet. We wanted to get a Developer's Choice done before Labor of Love, but we ran short on time... so there is still a chance to get yours loaded for our review!

When the fixes are done, expect a period of focused attention on cleaning up some stuff. This keeps getting delayed by work on 1.4.4 and its fixes... but it has not been forgotten.



WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON?

Nothing? Just fixes and more fixes... with maybe one half of one eye looking in the direction of discussing how we might best approach Crossplay.



TMODLOADER NEWS - TML TEAM



Hello everyone!

Bug fixing continues unabated, with a focus on some resolution issues as well as making some improvements on game starting as well as server hosting. We expect this work to continue for some time as we work to make the TML experience as fantastic as possible.

Other members of the team have been able to take a good amount of time to focus on bringing TML up to the 1.4.4/Labor of Love era. This work is going very well, though we really cannot give any sort of solid timeline for this release - in large part because Re-Logic is still putting out hotfixes! We have been doing all that we can to work closely with Modders as well in order to ensure a reasonable and smooth transition to 1.4.4, and not just breaking every mod day one.

More on timing when we can provide an accurate estimate!



TMODLOADER STEAM WORKSHOP

The TML Steam Workshop is closing in on 3000 mods already! 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!



WHAT'S NEXT FOR TML?

Getting TML to 1.4.4 and making that launch as smooth as we can is the core focus of the team for the next little while. The team has some ideas beyond that, but we really want to focus on the short term needs for now.

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 is working hard to keep pace with the PC fixes, while also working on some Console and Mobile specific bugfixes. 1.4.4.1 should already be in the hands of everyone, and we are happy to share that 1.4.4.5 is live for iOS and Android as of this morning!

TERRARIA MOBILE AND CONSOLE 1.4.4.5 CHANGELOG
[forums.terraria.org]
TERRARIA MOBILE DEDICATED SERVER 1.4.4.5
[terraria.org]

- Amazon and Google "Trial" versions are trailing behind a bit. Amazon should submit tomorrow. "Trial" will be delayed further due to an additional requirement requested by Google during submission.
- Console versions of 1.4.4.5 are expected to be submitted to first parties within the next couple of days at worst.

Beyond that update, we will be looking to continue with fixes until we reach the same final version as PC (whatever that turns out to be haha), and we feel like we are in a good place with fixes on Console and Mobile. On top of this, we are already in the planning stages for our attempts at Crossplay. The team has a good sense for where we currently stand as well as the potential issues that lie ahead. We will share more details of our plan once we have it a bit more fleshed out.

Until next time, Console & Mobile friends - thanks for all of your love and support!

In case you missed our earlier announcement about the series as a whole, you can check out those details HERE, and you can still get your orders in for the initial shipment of Issue Three for a little bit longer. We have been really impressed with the array of packages and options 50 Amp has put together for this release... and we hope you agree!

[www.50ampproductions.com]

As a reminder, we are planning to roll out Issues 1-4 (Book One) over the next few months, followed by a full Book One release to book sellers/retailers in Q1 2023. We also plan to make physical copies of the complete Book One available for direct purchase. Book One will contain all of the first four issues along with a few other goodies (still TBD, but think concept art and other "making of" work, stuff like that). All orders can be placed on the 50 Amp Productions Website - click the cover above to check it out!

Now, on to the details!



Issue One orders start today, but here is the overall expected timeline:

We do not expect to run into any delivery issues, but there is always the potential for issues beyond our control. 50 Amp Productions are committed to communicating with the fans if any issue arises.

TERRARIA: LABOR OF LOVE UPDATE NOTES

QUALITY OF LIFE

GEAR LOADOUTS


Terraria has always been a game where the player is constantly shifting roles - Dig, Fight, Build is the tagline, after all! Previously, this meant a lot of shifting around of gear sets and the like... but with Labor of Love, players will at long last have access to a set of three gear loadouts! This will allow players to create different gear setups ahead of time and seamlessly swap between them as needed.


EVOLVED VOID BAG

For those of you who aren't already familiar with the current version of the Void Bag, it is a portable personal storage container similar to the Money Trough. Uniquely, it also has the ability to automatically pick up any extra items whenever your inventory is full. However, we have added expanded functionality to the Void Bag to further enhance its role as a supplementary inventory.



For starters, the Void Bag can now be opened or closed with Right Click. When in the Closed state, it will deactivate its ability to pick up extra items, and act just like second Money Trough. When in the Opened state, however, a variety of new functionality becomes available!



Any crafting materials kept within the Void Bag will be available for any crafting recipes! You will not have to directly access the storage, or summon the portal, to be able to immediately craft with anything inside of the Void Bag!


Healing, Mana, and Buff Potions stored in the Void Bag can be used directly via their respective Quick Hotkeys. You can store all of your favorite buff potions in the Void Bag and simply refresh at any time! Mana Flower auto-potion functionality will work with the Void Bag as well! Enterprising players might keep some core buff potions in their regular inventory, with a secondary set of specialized buff potions in the bag. Depending on which mode the Void Bag is in, this will allow players to effectively hold two different potion "loadouts" at a time!


You can now Favorite items stored within the Void Bag. This has been added because you can ALSO Quick Stack to Nearby Chests anything inside of your Opened Void Bag. Favorite the things you want to keep, and then use Quick Stack for faster chest sorting!


Using Loot All on a chest with a full or nearly full inventory will deposit any overflow directly into the Void Bag​

There are a number of other items which will function automatically when placed in a Open Void Bag, as they would when in the player's inventory, including:

  • Info Accessories
  • Paint Sprayer, Presserator, and any accessories that grant Wire, Actuator, or Ruler vision when in the inventory
  • The Guide to Critter Companionship
  • Keys stored in the bag can be used to open Chests
  • Wormhole Potions

INVENTORY IMPROVEMENTS

Most stackable items have had their max limit increased to 9999!


That's right folks, you can once again place any accessory in your social slots.


To help you keep track of what is going into which chest, Quick Stack to Nearby Chests now has a visual effect, showing the items which are being quick stacked moving towards the chests.


KEEP COUNT WITH NUMERICAL HEALTH BARS

No longer wonder how much health you have left - even on the fancier health bars! (Toggle this on/off in settings)


Having to hover over the boss to see just how close you are to defeating it is a thing of the past!


ROPE INTERACTION IMPROVEMENTS


Rope has always been a useful tool since it was added to Terraria, but it has never really played nice with other handy exploration tools such as minecart tracks and platforms. Labor of Love fixes up that little problem - ropes, cart tracks, and platforms... living together... mass hysteria!

This is just a small sampling of the Quality of Life improvements we have made in Terraria: Labor of Love! Be sure to dive into the full changelog for all of the juicy details!

WORLD SEEDS


GET FIXED BOI - THE ZENITH SEED

You ever wonder what would happen if you took every seed in the game - including the new ones from Labor of Love - mashed them together, and then spent the extra time to playtest this new seed and polish it until it is "just right". Oh, and then for good measure, you tossed in a few features and dynamics unique to that seed?

Wonder no more, for the Zenith Seed is here! We consider this to be the true Magnum Opus of Terraria World Seeds - a version of Terraria that is equal parts unique to play and a whole new level of challenge for the most hardened Terrarians. Take on this seed only if you dare, for it may truly break you - Get Fixed Boi!



DON'T DIG UP - THE REMIX SEED

An idea first discussed during the release of Journey's End, Don't Dig Up turns the world of Terraria upside down - literally! The player will begin their adventure in the depths of the underworld, complete with all new flora to help provide early resources.

As the player ascends into "The Up", however, the threats will magnify exponentially until they reach the Surface - a truly horrifying and inhospitable place that will test the mettle of even the most seasoned Terrarian. Rethink everything you know, but Don't Dig Up unless you are prepared for what comes next!



NO TRAPS - THE NO TRAPS SEED

You know what is the worst? When you are out exploring in the world of Terraria and you get blown up by an explosive trap... or even worse, squashed by a nasty boulder! Well, the team wanted to make a World Seed that was designed with Terrarians who really hate traps in mind.


IMPROVEMENTS TO EXISTING WORLD SEEDS


In developing the three new World Seeds for Labor of Love, the team gained some new insights into how to really make world seeds feel special. Thus, we took the extra time to revisit some of our existing seeds in order to spruce them up a bit. For some seeds, these changes are relatively minor. However, the Celebration Mk 10 and For the Worthy seeds have seen some pretty substantial tweaks. Regardless, it is very much worth it for Terrarians to check out all of the existing World Seeds once again with these new changes in place!

Of course, this is just scratching the surface for all there is to know about World Seeds in Labor of Love - be sure to check out the full changelog linked below for all of the details!

NEW ADDITIONS

INTRODUCING - THE TOWN SLIMES


Slimes are widely considered to be non-sentient beings: mindless blobs of gel that aimlessly bounce about throughout the world of Terraria. Recently however, Terrarian Slimeologists have discovered what appears to be a new evolution in slime kind... some sort of big, blobby, smart slimes. Well, smart by slime standards at least.

The denizens of Terraria have dubbed these new creatures "Town Slimes", for their penchant to attempt to dress up and try to fit in with Terrarian society. Thus far, the discovered variants include:

Cool Slime - The backwards hat is a clear giveaway that this is one hip slime indeed

Clumsy Slime - No one is quite sure how that arrow got stuck in his head, but he seems to like it...

Surly Slime - This guy has a bad attitude and keeps running afoul of the law

Nerdy Slime - Clearly smarter than all other slimes, as evidenced by the glasses

Elder Slime - Back in his day, you had to jump over single block tall heights and you had to dig up blocks before replacing them

Diva Slime - Yes, even slimes have celebrities... and yes she is better than you

Mystic Slime - This slime is in touch with the natural energies that flow throughout Terraria

Squire Slime - Ready to defend the kingdom from all threats, wielding the most powerful weapon known to Slimekind

This cast of characters is packed with personality, and players who are brave and clever enough to seek them out during their adventures will have the chance to have all eight Town Slimes move in to their towns/bases! Best of luck on your search for the Town Slimes - gotta catch 'em all!


NEW USEFUL ITEMS TO AID YOUR ADVENTURES


You used to call me on the Cellphone, but now that Labor of Love is here, all the cool kids are using the Shellphone! This handy device allows you to choose the destination of the magic mirror function - Initial Spawn, Home (Bed), Ocean, or Underworld!


Terraformer - we have taken the Clentaminator and made it stronger, faster, better. We have the technology!


Lilith's Necklace will allow you to transform into a wolf during your adventures - because who doesn't want to channel their inner wolf!?


NEW BLOCKS AND DECOR

What Terraria update would be complete without some fancy new decorations and blocks to spruce up your bases, arenas, and more! Here are a few fun examples:


Reef Blocks and Coral Furniture


Brand New Paintings - Designed by the Team, Testers, and Community


A Blast from the Past - Ancient Blocks Relive the Early Days of Terraria!


Have You Ever Wanted to Place Heart & Mana Crystals as Decorations? Sure you have!


NEW BUILDER TOOLS

On top of providing all new blocks and furniture for our builder friends, the team has added two new Terraria building tools that we think will really help you take your Terraria creations to the next level!


Hand of Creation - A New Tinker that will Make Building Easier than Ever!




Rubblemaker - At Long Last, the Fun Worldgen-based Stuff is at your Fingertips!

Check out these videos by Khaios and CheesyPaninie for full details - they do a better job showing these off than words could ever do!


ECHO AND ILLUMINANT COATINGS

New Coatings provide players with all new ways to design cool base/town effects and even more diabolical adventure maps!


Echo Coating, combined with the Echo Monolith lets you make things disappear! Now you see it, now you don't!


To help you really see the potential that Coatings can provide, Khaios and CheesyPaninie put together the video above - definitely give this a watch!

Of course, this is just a sampling of what we have added in Labor of Love - be sure to check out the full changelog linked below for all of the details!

BALANCE & MELEE OVERHAUL

MELEE OVERHAUL
The Melee "Class" has always had a bit of a reputation for being underwhelming and a bit of a struggle to use - particularly against very mobile foes. No, Zenith does not count - that is an endgame weapon that is devastating to use regardless of what "class" one wishes to place it.

Taking the dynamics of defense, damage done, mobility, etc. all into account, it was clear that the entire class needed a closer look to make the risk more worth the rewards when playing Melee. What all does this entail? We will not cover everything here, but this should give a good sense for our approach.


GLOBAL WEAPON TWEAKS
All broadsword-class melee weapons (this also includes pickaxes, axes, hammers, and hamaxes) now use local immunity frames on hit. Very notably, this means that projectile swords will no longer block their own piercing projectiles from hitting a target at point blank range. It will also result in more consistent hitting when mixing multiple sources of damage (Piercing minions and swords, for example)

Knockback when spinning flails has been increased from 25% to 35% of normal knockback
Spinning flails now hit up to 4 times a second instead of 3 times a second. Flails which already hit 4 times a second have been increased to 5 times a second.

---

MELEE WEAPON STAT BUFFS
Many Melee Weapons have seen numerical improvements in raw damage, use time, reach, etc. Coupled with the global changes that impact how projectiles and "direct" hits coexist (eg. no longer conflicting with each other), this results in a substantial increase in DPS and utility for previously underwhelming Melee Weapons.

---

WEAPON REWORKS
Even with the changes listed above, some Melee Weapons felt like they needed a more significant reworking - visually, functionally, or both. Let's dive into a few examples, shall we?


Dark Lance - Now generates a shockwave at the end of the spear, which increases its effective range. This shockwave also scales in size with melee speed, so you can now expect more pronounced Melee Speed benefits for Dark Lance. Now inflicts Shadowflame as well.


Light Disc - now a single item, not 5 stacked items. As a result, it can now have prefixes. Players can now shoot up to 6 Discs at once instead of 5. Oh, and a cool new light trail effect.


Horseman's Blade - Now has an area of damaging energy around the blade, dealing damage in a larger, wider area of effect, including better coverage behind the player.

---

NIGHT'S EDGE/TERRA BLADE SWORD QUEST LINE
We felt that the Terra Blade "quest" that begins with Night's Edge in pre-Hardmode, continuing into Hardmode, culminating in players crafting the Terra Blade - really needed to feel a bit more important and meaningful to players who chose to take it on. As a result, Night's Edge and Terra Blade have seen a rework - as have each of their components! We have highlighted a few below... but the rest, we leave up to you to discover.


Blood Butcherer - Every successful strike on an enemy now applies a stack of "Blood Butchered", a short lived damage over time effect. Each of these stacks are signified by a gout of blood spouting forth from the enemy.


Volcano - Fiery Greatsword evolved into Volcano! Upon striking an enemy, Volcano will generate an fiery explosive area of effect, dealing additional damage to the original target and nearby enemies!


True Excalibur - True Excalibur now has a very large area of damaging energy around the blade, dealing damage in a dramatically wider area of effect, including better coverage behind the player. It no longer fires a projectile sword beam



BOSS TWEAKS

We have given several bosses a once-over during Labor of Love, so you will want to check out the full changelog for all of the juicy details. You don't want to be caught unawares, after all! That being said, we did want to highlight two bosses that have perhaps seen the most changes. As a result, we expect that players will find them to be a bit more challenging!

GOLEM

What Terraria Balance Update would be complete without a buff to Golem? Continually seen as one of the easiest bosses in all of Terraria, the Golem fight needed more love from the team. What has changed? Take him on and find out!

DUKE FISHRON

The Duke was once seen as one of the better boss fights in all of Terraria. He is still a solid experience, but we felt like he could use a bit of tweaking in order to help him return to a more prominent challenge that is worthy of how the game has evolved since his introduction. Head to the Ocean and fish him up in order to experience a fresh fight!



PUMPKIN MOON OVERHAUL

Let's face it, the good old Pumpkin Moon was starting to show its age a bit. Once considered a challenge event, it has been relegated to the role of niche side content that doesn't really stand up to the skills and gear of the modern Terrarian. Well, fret not, Pumpkin Moon fans! We have reworked the Pumpkin Moon in order to bring it in line with other events of that same tier, such as the Frost Moon. What exactly did we change?


Pumpkin Moon is now a full 20 Wave event rather than its previous 15 Waves



Pumpkin Moon Enemies received some buffs, and the composition of each wave has changed...

The insane boss spam typical of the later waves of Pumpkin Moon has been cut back tremendously - this will not only challenge the player to play more optimally to rack up high scores, but will also likely put less strain on everyone's hardware.



Labor of Love has way too many balance tweaks to be able to cover them off here - be sure to check out the full changelog linked below for all of the details!

So, there you have it Terrarians. Our Love Letter to you. Terraria has been our Labor of Love for many years, and we hope that each of you have felt that come through in each update, in our interactions with you, and in the joy we have all received from playing this game over the years. Here's to Terraria, the Community, and many more fun times ahead!​

Terraria Graphic Novel - Book One, Issue Three Orders Now Open! https://terraria-servers.com/blog/400/terraria-graphic-novel-book-one-issue-three-orders-now-open/ https://terraria-servers.com/blog/400/terraria-graphic-novel-book-one-issue-three-orders-now-open/ Thu, 22 Sep 2022 17:36 CEST
We are back again - this time with the juicy details around the release of Issue 3 of the Terraria Graphic Novel Series! Issue 3 is all about the journey and getting to know some of our party of heroes a bit better - just as our friends are doing the same as they enjoy a quick meal while camped out at an oasis. In case you missed our earlier announcement about the series as a whole, you can check out those details HERE, and you can still get your orders in for the initial shipment of Issue Two for a little bit longer (details below - but don't fret if you miss the first shipment or if you missed out on Issue One, see the note below). Our team is once again thrilled with the packages that 50 Amp Productions[www.50ampproductions.com] has put together in support of the Graphic Novel rollout - and we hope you will feel the same way!

[www.50ampproductions.com]


IMPORTANT NOTE FROM 50 AMP PRODUCTIONS

There seems to be a little confusion regarding the ordering window and our “cut-off date.” So we wanted to offer a little clarification.

The term, “cut-off,” does not mean that after that date, you will not be able to place an order. We intend for these items to remain available well after those dates. The ordering window is to ensure that we have your item in-stock and ready to ship during our initial shipping windows. Should we sell out, you will still be able to get the items, but there will likely be a delay as we must reorder at the manufacturers.

As shipping has not yet begun for issue 1&2 boxes, if you see the reveal of the issue 3 items and would like to amend your order, please email us at info@50ampproductions.com and we will be happy to help you. It is very important to us that fans are satisfied and are able to ensure their orders are complete and correct.

We also wanted to take a moment to thank you all for supporting this project. We consider ourselves lucky to work with Re-Logic on this and to be able to offer these books and collectibles to you, the fans. We will be throwing some fun extra goodies into every order from Copper to Platinum as a thank you.


Now, on to the details!

As a reminder, we are planning to roll out Issues 1-4 (Book One) over the next few months, followed by a full Book One release to book sellers/retailers as well as available online some time in Q1 2023. Book One will contain all of the first four issues along with a few other goodies (still TBD, but think concept art and other "making of" work, stuff like that). All orders can be placed on the 50 Amp Productions Website - click the cover above to check it out!




Issue One orders start today, but here is the overall expected timeline:

TERRARIA GRAPHIC NOVEL ISSUES 1-4 ORDER WINDOWS
Issue 1: Orders Open - August 11 --- Orders for Initial Shipment Close - September 12
Issue 2: Reveal Date - September 1 --- Orders for Initial Shipment Close - October 3
Issue 3: Reveal Date - September 22 --- Orders for Initial Shipment Close - October 24

Issue 4: Reveal Date - October 13 --- Orders for Initial Shipment Close - November 14



EXPECTED SHIPPING TIMING FOR ORDERS
Issue 1 – Initial Shipment in October
Issue 2 – Initial Shipment in late October
Issue 3 – Initial Shipment in mid-November

Issue 4 - Initial Shipment in mid-December

We do not expect to run into any delivery issues, but there is always the potential for issues beyond our control. 50 Amp Productions are committed to communicating with the fans if any issue arises.



INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING COSTS UPDATE


Speaking of shipping, we know our international fans have sometimes run into some very high shipping costs (these are strictly pass-through costs based on whatever the shipping company is charging 50 Amp). We have been chasing down a variety of solutions to help bring these costs down, and we can at long last announce that we have found a way.

We have entered into a partnership which will allow us to offer another shipping option for our non-American customers. The short version is that by shipping international orders from our partner's European hub rather than our US-based warehouses, there is a good chance that we can cut all non-US shipping costs - often substantially.

Starting with our second issue on, we can provide this option to you! In addition, for Issues 2, 3, 4, and for our bundles - if you have already placed an order, we will be looking to see if this new option will save you money. If it will/does, we will be refunding the difference to the method of payment you used to make the purchase. Please be patient with us on this, as it could take us several days to process all of this, as we have to do the differences in shipping costs and refunds by hand. We will contact you afterwards if you should expect to see a refund.

Unfortunately, because we have already placed our orders with our manufacturers for issue 1 and the materials are all already at or en route to our American warehouse, we will have to utilize the initial shipping methods and costs - so we sadly cannot offer this option for issue 1.

We feel like this will allow us to help a lot of you save money, so we are very glad that we could find a way to make this happen, and we are SUPER appreciative of our partner in helping to make this a reality. Once we have this good and established, we should have this in place as our solution in the future.

Thank you for your patience and we apologize that the solution took a little bit to lock down!




TERRARIA GRAPHIC NOVEL: ISSUE 2 ORDERS STILL OPEN

We are still taking orders for the initial shipment of the second issue of the Terraria Graphic Novel. In case you missed the news or you just decided after seeing Issue Two's cover that you are all in, we have you covered.

We hope you have enjoyed seeing the packages for Issues One and Two, and we are back again with a variety of packages for Issue Three that we think provides something for everyone.

We are finally ready to reveal the details for the second issue of the Terraria Graphic Novel Series! Our story starts to ramp up in this issue, as you can probably tell by the cover art shown below! In case you missed our earlier announcement about the series as a whole, you can check out those details HERE, and you can still get your orders in for the initial shipment of Issue One for a little bit longer (details below, but don't fret if you miss the window, check out the note from 50 Amp Productions below!). Our team is once again thrilled with the packages that 50 Amp Productions[www.50ampproductions.com] has put together in support of the Graphic Novel rollout - and we hope you will feel the same way!
[www.50ampproductions.com]


IMPORTANT NOTE FROM 50 AMP PRODUCTIONS

There seems to be a little confusion regarding the ordering window and our “cut-off date.” So we wanted to offer a little clarification.

The term, “cut-off,” does not mean that after that date, you will not be able to place an order. We intend for these items to remain available well after those dates. The ordering window is to ensure that we have your item in-stock and ready to ship during our initial shipping windows. Should we sell out, you will still be able to get the items, but there will likely be a delay as we must reorder at the manufacturers.

As shipping has not yet begun for issue 1 boxes, if you see the reveal of the issue 2 items and would like to amend your order, please email us at info@50ampproductions.com and we will be happy to help you. It is very important to us that fans are satisfied and are able to ensure their orders are complete and correct.

We also wanted to take a moment to thank you all for supporting this project. We consider ourselves lucky to work with Re-Logic on this and to be able to offer these books and collectibles to you, the fans. We will be throwing some fun extra goodies into every order from Copper to Platinum as a thank you.


Now, on to the details!

As a reminder, we are planning to roll out Issues 1-4 (Book One) over the next few months, followed by a full Book One release to book sellers/retailers as well as available online some time in Q1 2023. Book One will contain all of the first four issues along with a few other goodies (still TBD, but think concept art and other "making of" work, stuff like that). All orders can be placed on the 50 Amp Productions Website - click the cover above to check it out!




Issue One orders start today, but here is the overall expected timeline:

TERRARIA GRAPHIC NOVEL ISSUES 1-4 ORDER WINDOWS
Issue 1: Orders Open - August 11 --- Orders for Initial Shipment Close - September 12
Issue 2: Reveal Date - September 1 --- Orders for Initial Shipment Close - October 3

Issue 3: Reveal Date - September 22 --- Orders for Initial Shipment Close - October 24
Issue 4: Reveal Date - October 13 --- Orders for Initial Shipment Close - November 14



EXPECTED SHIPPING TIMING FOR ORDERS
Issue 1 – Initial Shipment in October
Issue 2 – Initial Shipment in late October

Issue 3 – Initial Shipment in mid-November
Issue 4 - Initial Shipment in mid-December

We do not expect to run into any delivery issues, but there is always the potential for issues beyond our control. 50 Amp Productions are committed to communicating with the fans if any issue arises.



INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING COSTS UPDATE


Speaking of shipping, we know our international fans have sometimes run into some very high shipping costs (these are strictly pass-through costs based on whatever the shipping company is charging 50 Amp). We are happy to share that the Re-Logic and 50 Amp teams have been chasing solutions to this over the past month, and we think we are getting close to a solution to lower those costs. We plan to refund the difference for anyone that paid more than the new costs once we have them in hand. We will email you if you are one of those folks once it all comes through.




TERRARIA GRAPHIC NOVEL: ISSUE 1 ORDERS STILL OPEN

We are still taking orders for the first issue of the Terraria Graphic Novel. In case you missed the news or you just decided after seeing Issue Two's cover that you are all in, we have you covered.

Terraria State of the Game - August 2022 https://terraria-servers.com/blog/397/terraria-state-of-the-game-august-2022/ https://terraria-servers.com/blog/397/terraria-state-of-the-game-august-2022/ Thu, 25 Aug 2022 19:38 CEST

Greetings Terrarians!

Alas, Summer is drawing to a close. Back to School, work, or just whatever your daily grind may be - we hope your Summer was a fun and relaxing one! As we head into the Fall - probably our favorite season - the development teams are making huge strides towards getting the Labor of Love update into your hands. This is a State of the Game that you will not want to miss, because we are at long last going to be able to dive into some details around the launch of this fantastic Terraria update. So, sit down, buckle up, and let's get this month's SOTG underway!



PC - RE-LOGIC


TERRARIA - LABOR OF LOVE UPDATE

The Re-Logic team is proud to reveal that we have completed our work on the Labor of Love update, and that we have officially reached code freeze on the PC side! That means that while we may still be looking at bugfixes and tweaks for anything that we might find between now and launch, we are not adding anything new to the game/code any more in order to allow time for our friends at DR Studios to finish their work on porting to Console and Mobile. Why not just go ahead and release it if we are "done", you say? Well, beyond the aforementioned continued - and needed - testing and fixing...
It is our intention to make this the first simultaneous Terraria update release across all platforms. That means that if all goes to plan, Terraria: Labor of Love will release on PC, Console, and Mobile at the same time!

Barring any issues or delays in first party (Sony, Nintendo, etc) submissions, we expect Labor of Love to release in late September.

So there you have it - pretty big news, eh? We are so excited for the chance to do a simultaneous release to everyone all at once - a daunting task, but one that we cannot wait to attempt. Perhaps a glimpse at how things will be in the possible future where crossplay is a thing.

While we are on the subject of Labor of Love, ChippyGaming produced a nice summary video of all of the spoilers for this update thus far - it is definitely worth a watch to catch up in case you missed anything!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubU19vZAxDQ



STEAM WORKSHOP NEWS



Click the banner above to check out the Terraria Workshop!

With over 62,000 packs and worlds so far, you are missing out if you haven't taken the time to check out the Workshop yet. Planning on another round of Developer's Choice soon - so get your best and brightest up on the Workshop now!

Once Labor of Love hits, expect even more summer cleaning to come your way.



WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON?

Right now, our core focus is the final push to get Labor of Love done to what we have as the vision for the update. We will be revisiting "what's next" once we get this update out and any needed hotfixes, etc.



TMODLOADER NEWS - TML TEAM



Hello everyone!

Another month, even more bugfixes for tModLoader 1.4! Generally speaking, the team has spent at least half of its time on bug fixes with another eye (and half our time) looking towards the setup for delivery of future major improvements. Want some examples? Of course you do!

  • Started work on improved dedicated server utilities & multiplayer stability
  • Began working on improved GoG and Steam Family Share compatibility
  • Work is underway on an improved Mod Browser experience

So, all in all, sort of a quieter month (but with lots going on) focused around 'what are the next big areas where we can improve tML 1.4' now that we have gotten a better grip on release cycles and minimizing the impacts on users.



TMODLOADER STEAM WORKSHOP

The TML Steam Workshop is already up to over 2,200 mods in just one short month. 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
As a continued reminder, 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?

More fixes, more behind the scenes work on the improvements we mentioned above - more details to come as we know more and get further down the road!

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 doing all that we can to keep pace with the PC side of Labor of Love so that once Re-Logic finished development, we could pick up the baton and move quickly towards completing development on Console and Mobile so that we would be ready for submissions as quickly as possible. As shared in the PC section above (since we know some Console/Mobile Terrarians may just skip to this section)...


It is our intention to make this the first simultaneous Terraria update release across all platforms. That means that if all goes to plan, Terraria: Labor of Love will release on PC, Console, and Mobile at the same time!

Barring any issues or delays in first party (Sony, Nintendo, etc) submissions, we expect Labor of Love to release in late September.

Don't think that we forgot a spoiler or two for you folks either...





Until next time, Console & Mobile friends - thanks for all of your love and support!

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.

NEW TERRARIA MERCHANDISE COMING SOON FROM VIDGLO!

We have been teasing this for a little while, but we are at long last able to reveal a sneak peek into the first wave of the new Terraria merch offerings coming very soon from our friends at Vidglo (https://terraria.shop/). These are items that we have never really had before, so we are pretty excited to see all of this come to fruition! These should be available sometime around the end of September.

Terraria Jigsaw Puzzles!

The team at https://wiki.gg/ has been hard at work with a lot of stuff for the Official Terraria Wiki[terraria.wiki.gg] - including brand new visual themes that match the themes available here on TCF! Jungle, Underground, Corruption, and more - the plan is to roll these out to users in the very near future. For now, let's give you a quick teaser for the Jungle and Underground themes:





These will be available to everyone that uses the Official Terraria Wiki[terraria.wiki.gg] very soon, so keep an eye out!



GUILDS FOR HOPE CHARITY FUNDRAISER - FINAL WEEK!



There is only one week left to participate in our Guilds for Hope charity event. We have already helped raise thousands of dollars for an incredible cause and we are closing in on our goal!

The Terraria team is thrilled to be participating in the United Servers of Discord Alliance’s first Guilds For Hope charity fundraiser! We’re teaming up with many other communities to raise money for Give Kids The World Village, an 89-acre, whimsical nonprofit resort in Central Florida that provides critically ill children and their families from around the world with magical week-long wish vacations at no cost.

Watch this video to learn more about the Guilds for Hope charity event.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-jf2cKursU

Half of all critically ill children eligible for a wish choose to visit Central Florida and its world-famous theme parks. Give Kids The World is the nonprofit that fulfills all of these wishes. – providing every wish family with an all-inclusive experience including transportation, accommodations, all meals and snacks, donated theme park tickets, and more!


Together, let's try and raise as much money as possible to help support GKTW. Once you open the Team Fundraiser link below, you can either donate to the Terraria team goal, or you can register as a fundraiser for a team. By registering as a fundraiser, you will be able to unlock reward tiers by reaching designated milestone thresholds including the top fundraiser winning a 3 day, 2 night stay in Orlando at the Melia Orlando Celebration Hotel (certificate valid for up to one year) and a tour of Give Kids The World Village; and by contributing to our team, you’ll be able to help us compete for the ultimate goal- bragging rights!



We invite everyone to help bring hope and join this charity event by registering at this link: Tiltify - Made for Fundraisers[tiltify.com]

If you are interested in learning more about the Guilds for Hope charity event then please join the #guilds-for-hope channel in the USDA server located at Join the United Servers of Discord Alliance Discord Server![discord.gg]





TERRARIA NINJA WARRIOR

We are thrilled to announce that we are planning to create a Terraria parkour game show live on Twitch. Full details will be announced once everything is finalized, but the plan is to bring contestants live on stream to compete against each other to see who can get the furthest on challenging parkour builds. Winners will receive cool prizes.

If this sounds like an exciting community initiative for you then reach out to MrGameTheory, the Terraria community manager at 505 Games, and let him know if you have any interest in competing, helping to create the parkour maps, or participating in his community initiative in some way. You can reach him within the official Terraria Discord server.




Until next time, Terrarians - we hope you have an amazing month, and we look forward to bringing you the latest and greatest next time!]]>
Terraria Graphic Novel - Book One, Issue One Orders Now Open! https://terraria-servers.com/blog/396/terraria-graphic-novel-book-one-issue-one-orders-now-open/ https://terraria-servers.com/blog/396/terraria-graphic-novel-book-one-issue-one-orders-now-open/ Thu, 11 Aug 2022 21:33 CEST
The day is finally here - orders for the first Issue of Book One of the Terraria Graphic Novel Series are now open! In case you missed our earlier announcement about the series as a whole, you can check out those details HERE. The team at Re-Logic in conjunction with our partners at 50 Amp Productions[www.50ampproductions.com] is very excited to be able to roll out the first part of Book One at long last to all of you. The 50 Amp team has also gone above and beyond the Graphic Novel itself and put together a few additional collectibles that fans can pick up as well should you feel so inclined.

[www.50ampproductions.com]

With all that said, let's dive right in to how it will all work, what is available and when, etc. shall we?

Overall, the plan is to roll out Issues 1-4 (Book One) over the next few months, followed by a full Book One release to book sellers/retailers as well as available online some time in Q1 2023. Book One will contain all of the first four issues along with a few other goodies (still TBD, but think concept art and other "making of" work, stuff like that).

TERRARIA GRAPHIC NOVEL: ISSUE 1 PACKAGES

The team has put together an array of packages that we think provides something for everyone. If you just want Issue 1 and that's it, we have that for you - but we have also put together a solid handful of additional collectibles to celebrate the occasion that folks can pick up in the other packages if they so choose. Similar packages with different items will be available for Issues 2-4. All 4 issues will be available for purchase at launch, though we have order cut-off dates to ensure our ability to ship by a certain date.

Greetings Terrarians!

Summer is nearly over already?! My how the time flies when you are having fun - which we certainly hope has been the case for all of you out there! We have been having a TON of fun during the development of the Labor of Love update. Reading fan ideas, brainstorming other cool new stuff internally, seeing where the creativity takes us: it has been a real blast. That said, we can definitely see the light at the end of the tunnel. So, let's dive right into the late-summer State of the Game news shall we?



PC - RE-LOGIC


TERRARIA - LABOR OF LOVE UPDATE

Labor of Love has reached a point where we feel like the end of development is extremely close. We have been whittling down our bugs and tasks lists while also taking on a solid handful of cool ideas that you all have shared with us on the forums, social media, Discord, and more. Hopefully, you have been keeping up with the spoilery tidbits we have been sharing along the way. Still no exact date to give you just yet (though it is starting to come into focus)


That said, you came here for the latest and greatest, right? We would hate to disappoint you, so here it goes...

THE VOID BAG HAS EVOLVED!

For those of you who aren't already familiar with the current version of the Void Bag, it is a portable personal storage container similar to the Money Trough. Uniquely, it also has the ability to automatically pick up any extra items whenever your inventory is full.However, we have added expanded functionality to the Void Bag to further enhance its role as a supplementary inventory.


For starters, the Void Bag can now be opened or closed with Right Click. When in the Closed state, it will deactivate its ability to pick up extra items, and act just like second Money Trough. When in the Opened state, however, a variety of new functionality becomes available!



Any crafting materials kept within the Void Bag will be available for any crafting recipes! You will not have to directly access the storage, or summon the portal, to be able to immediately craft with anything inside of the Void Bag!



Healing, Mana, and Buff Potions stored in the Void Bag can be used directly via their respective Quick Hotkeys. You can store all of your favorite buff potions in the Void Bag and simply refresh at any time! Mana Flower auto-potion functionality will work with the Void Bag as well! Enterprising players might keep some core buff potions in their regular inventory, with a secondary set of specialized buff potions in the bag. Depending on which mode the Void Bag is in, this will allow players to effectively hold two different potion "loadouts" at a time!



You can now Favorite items stored within the Void Bag. This has been added because you can ALSO Quick Stack to Nearby Chests anything inside of your Opened Void Bag. Favorite the things you want to keep, and then use Quick Stack for faster chest sorting!



Using Loot All on a chest with a full or nearly full inventory will deposit any overflow directly into the Void Bag

There are a number of other items which will function automatically when placed in a Open Void Bag, as they would when in the player's inventory, including:

  • Info Accessories
  • Paint Sprayer, Presserator, and any accessories that grant Wire, Actuator, or Ruler vision when in the inventory
  • The Guide to Critter Companionship
  • Keys stored in the bag can be used to open Chests
  • Wormhole
  • Potions

Hope this revamp and evolution of the Void Bag has you even more excited for Labor of Love than ever before! Again, if you missed any of the litany of spoilers that we have shared over the past month on Twitter and elsewhere, be sure to check out and follow our social media channels to catch up and so that you do not miss any that might drop in the future!


We will hopefully have a date soon, we promise! (How's that for a non-committal promise?)



STEAM WORKSHOP NEWS



Click the banner above to check out the Terraria Workshop!

Closing in on 60,000 packs and worlds so far, you are missing out if you haven't taken the time to check out the Workshop yet. Planning on another round of Developer's Choice soon - so get your best and brightest up on the Workshop now!

Once Labor of Love hits, expect even more summer cleaning to come your way.



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!

This month has almost all been bugfixes - as things often are after a major launch like TML 1.4!. There's still more todo, but we're doing our best to fix issues and support as many users as possible - so keep your reports coming in.

We have also added tML support for modded pylons (thanks to MutantWafflez). Thanks to this, pylon mods should become more compatible, and we can expect more modded pylons.



TMODLOADER STEAM WORKSHOP

The TML Steam Workshop is already up to nearly 2,000 mods in just one short month. 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
As a continued reminder, 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?

Bug fixes and more bug fixes... did we mention bug fixes? We have a few other things in the works, but they are not really ready to talk about yet.

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 really enjoyed this development cycle, being able to run alongside our good friends at Re-Logic and working in parallel to try and keep Mobile and Console right on pace. We won't lie, being able to show brand new Terraria content for the first time on Mobile and Switch was simply amazing, and we are so happy to be able to take part in the spoiler-y fun at last. Speaking of, we have some fun new stuff to show you this month, so shall we?


Equipped pets can now be seen in the Player Select Menu!


Who doesn't want to channel their inner Wolf?

Now, we would be remiss without giving you a mobile spoiler as well, right? Well, pardon our dust a bit on this one as it is still very much a work in progress (we do not have the mappable UI button in quite yet as well, but it is coming!)


Gear Loadouts on Mobile Terraria - Work in Progress!


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

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 is where you can find all of the latest and greatest Terraria merchandise - and we are kicking off the new year with a handful of new offerings, including brand new plush! Check out the latest merch drops as well as some classics and pick up that epic Terraria gift for a friend (or yourself!)

[terraria.org]

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



TERRARIA MERCHANDISE UPDATES​

NEW TERRARIA MERCH COMING SOON

We have a few new fun items coming soon that you might enjoy - and even more planned for the Holidays. While we don't want to reveal anything JUST yet (as we prefer to be able to show things when you are able to actually go ahead and get them), we have the following and more in the works:

New Clothing Designs
Keychain/Bag Clips
The first Terraria Jigsaw Puzzle
...and a lot more!

Oh... and we can confirm that Town Slime stuff is already in the works. We won't show you JUST yet... we would rather wait until we have them fully ready and available - but the Town Slimes are coming...



OTHER COMMUNITY NEWS

TERRARIA MODS WIKI LAUNCHES SOON

Our good friends at Wiki.gg have been working with the TML Team and others on a brand new Terraria Mods Wiki!

[terrariamods.wiki.gg]

The wiki is located at https://terrariamods.wiki.gg, and is available for your use now. A small group of folks received advanced access in order to start adding content - but now we are ready to reveal it to everyone. The current format is a modified version of the same theme used on the vanilla Terraria wiki. This might need to be changed in the future in order to avoid confusing readers on which wiki they are on. We are currently working with the tModLoader team to develop some assets to hopefully make the Terraria Mods wiki feel even more unique.


We looked at the current Fandom mods wiki to start, but based on its current status, we decided to make a mostly fresh start here. Basically, the new Terraria Mods wiki has the same structure as the one on Fandom, just without any mods currently covered there. The small group we have reached out to in advance before going public has mainly be mod devs to add their mods to the wiki in advance of the launch. We will also attempt to bring over particular mods from the Fandom wiki as long as their content is in good shape (i.e. following naming conventions and using proper templates). Being as there are almost 200 mods on the Fandom wiki, it would take a lot of work to determine which mods are still active and organized among everything else. The plan is to be more on top of mod content on wiki.gg than things ever were on Fandom, so we avoid unorganized/old content, keep to consistent standards, etc.


We hope you take some time to check this out today!



TERRARIA LEGO IDEAS CONCEPT UPDATE - GOAL ACHIEVED!!

The Terraria Lego Ideas concept that we had mentioned for the past few State of the Game posts has reached the 10,000 Supporter goal that Lego sets for things to move on to the next phase. We have tried to reach out in parallel to see if we can help enable things along the way. As for what is next or the timing, no one knows just yet - but if and when we do, we will tell you immediately. Thanks again to our wonderful community for sending a strong message that Terrarians want Terraria Legos!!!

Until next time, Terrarians - we hope you have an amazing month, and we look forward to bringing you the latest and greatest next time!]]>
Terraria Graphic Novel Series Revealed! https://terraria-servers.com/blog/394/terraria-graphic-novel-series-revealed/ https://terraria-servers.com/blog/394/terraria-graphic-novel-series-revealed/ Thu, 07 Jul 2022 21:06 CEST
We are beyond thrilled to be able to at long last reveal a project that has been going on behind the scenes for quite some time - the Terraria Graphic Novel series! We here at Re-Logic have been working closely with our partners at 50 Amp Productions[50ampproductions.com] on all aspects of the graphic novels - from script to lineart to coloring and more, we really feel like these are a perfect balance between staying authentic to the Terraria experience while taking enough creative license to be able to craft an engaging story within the Terraria universe.

We are nearly finished with Book One in the series, and we wanted to give you a sneak peek (well... beyond the one we gave you in June's State of the Game) at what is to come. Each Book will contain four parts... and this is the cover art for Terraria - Book One, Issue One.


(Cover art is final, but the team is working on a new custom logo for this series - so the Terraria Logo here is just a WIP/Placeholder using our in-game logo)

Outside of working on Terraria itself, this is maybe the most excited we have been for any project we have been involved with thus far. We have high hopes and big plans here, should these do well enough and meet with the approval of the Terraria Community.

The rollout plan is still under discussion, and we will have more details on that very soon. However, we can share that the current plan is to make Issues 1-4 available as standalone items (both with and without some other really cool collectibles that we are developing as a part of the package) starting in Q3 of this year and continuing through the end of 2022. We will then have the entire Book One available as a completed piece along with some special additions in early 2023. We would then begin work on Book Two and so on.

Now, of course, we will always maintain that the Terraria story is as open ended as the players themselves - so view this as just one possible take of the limitless stories that could be told about the who, what, and why behind what happens in the world of Terraria. That said, we think it is a pretty good one - and one that we are hoping and looking to expand upon in future books in the series. How far we will be able to go here, of course, depends on your support! The more successful these are or become, the further we can take the story... and who knows, maybe we could one day explore having these adapted as a streaming series or more.

We hope you are all as excited as we are about Terraria finally getting the legit Graphic Novel treatment and are intrigued to see the story thus far... and where it might take us all.

Cheers!]]>

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...



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 55,000 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?!

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.



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!

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!

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!

Greetings Terrarians!

You know what they say... April showers bring Terraria news! Or something like that anyway. 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!

The level of quality and quantity on the Terraria Steam Workshop keeps on growing and growing - with over 53,000 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?

Pretty much we are all-in on Labor of Love... though there are other things in the works to help us continue to prepare for our second project.



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!

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!



STEAM WORKSHOP NEWS

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?

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!




STEAM WORKSHOP NEWS

The level of quality and quantity on the Terraria Steam Workshop just continues to climb - over 46,000 packs and worlds so far, and it just... keeps... growing! If you have not checked out the Workshop yet, what are you waiting for?



TERRARIA WORKSHOP DEVELOPER'S CHOICE SELECTIONS
Over the break and beyond, the team has had a chance to catch up on some of the latest Packs and Worlds on the Steam Workshop. So, here you have it - our latest suite of Developer's Choice sections!

What a horrible night to have a curse... on this simply amazing map.



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 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.

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!

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
- A few minor Don't Starve inspired worldgen features
- Has substantially improved drop rates and availablility of Don't Starve related items
  • Added the Deerclops, a mid-late pre-Hardmode boss hailing from the world of Don't Starve
  • A variation on the Deerclops' boss theme, provided by Klei Entertainment!
  • A few rare background clouds featuring characters from Don't Starve can now appear
  • Added several new Don't Starve related emotes
  • Main menu now has some links to some assorted Terraria-related websites
  • Worlds using special seeds now have unique icons in the World Select menu to better tell them apart
  • Added a config option for an older version of Smart Cursor Hold, labeled in the config file as "SmartCursorHoldCanReleaseMidUse". Changing this setting to true will make it so that Smart Cursor: Hold will IMMEDIATELY deactivate when releasing the hold button, even if the player is mining.



New Items
  • Several new pets from the Don't Starve universe
  • A collection of Don't Starve weapons and equipment, adapted to the world of Terraria!
  • Wilson and Willow Vanity Outfits
  • Several vanity hats and accessories

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where Crimson Grass Walls spread slower than Corruption
  • Fixed a (previously undetectable issue) where enemies with a higher NPC ID than Golden Slimes would have Golden Slime bonus money drops
  • Fixed a rare worldgen softlock, where the game gets stuck trying to generate Hellforges
  • Fixed an issue with part of Leather Whip's segments being cut off
  • Fixed an issue with Ice Bow being flagged as a channeling weapon when it isn't
  • Fixed an issue with Flying Knife not having proper screen range limits
  • Fixed Princess not having the same "leaving" SFX like Angler
  • 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

We are working through Klei's merchandise partners at FreshMerch on this series of crossover merchandise items, using the key art for this update! Click the banner below to check out and pick up anything that catches your eye!
