    Hello Terrarians!

    The Re-Logic dev team has been hard at work on 1.3.6 this week. There is some pretty exciting stuff, so we thought we'd start your weekend off right with a look at one of the many new backgrounds coming to Terraria in 1.3.6 :)

    This looks amazing! Can't wait to see if there is others. I love how the clouds are behind the islands, but in front the sun.

    I'll be sad though, because my computer can't handle the background anymore. ;(

    my graphics card is trash so Terraria can't handle backgrounds or it crashes.

    Distant uninhabited lands. Uninhabited of course because people there all died of fall damage! :redspin:

    This looks amazing! I've always thought "The ocean background looks great!" But now you've replaced it with something a thousand times better!

    I just noticed that! The little things like these really make the Terraria world that much better/more realistic. Well, as realistic as you can get with a game that features flying eyeballs with mouths that roar.

    Looking really great. Time to go island hopping.

    The art style on those cliffs reminds me of Terraria Otherworld to a small extent. This looks beautiful, and I liked how 1.2 introduced a lot of alternative backgrounds, so it's nice to see even more being added.

    More visual variety is always nice. Any plans to make terrain generation based on which backgrounds generate in a world?

    Huh... I just realized something:
    • Summer = Ocean & Desert Biomes
    • Fall = Corruption & Crimson Biomes (mainly the forest type)
    • Winter = Snow Biome
    • Spring = Purity Forest (i.e. a normal forest) & Hallow (again, mainly the forest type)
    Not sure where Jungle would fit in. Seems like a Spring/Summer biome, leaning more towards Summer.

    Yeahh I see two new blocks used on the car. It wasn't just me.
    One remind me of Iron Block from StarBound.

    I really like background and it's amazing to see more of them.
     
  19. Seems the theme of this update is new furniture and background graphics. I like this and I think this new ocean biome background might be my new favorite next to the pure biome background that has that giant :red: lake and snow covered mountain range.
