    Yes, this is very awesome. It's one of the reasons why I don't make complex houses made out of advanced materials because I don't feel like having to tear crap down to rebuild it later, nor do I want to go long periods of time without enough housing to get NPCs to move in.

    This will also help quite a bit if you are building underground, no more having to mine walls out to replace them with the walls you want, just drop the new blocks in, mine out where you need rooms to go, etc.

    That's true, I hadn't even thought about the underground building implications. I love building into the big hills with tunnels, and really just underground in general, so this will be great!

    Also, doing things like lining hellevators... never bothered to do it because it was such a PITA to mine out every block one by one, then go back and put new blocks in, one by one. Now you can do far less work. Hold the mouse button while tapping down while hanging on a rope. hehe.

    They don't do updates for Terraria 3ds anymore... :nursecrying:

    That's all I care about right now.

    Well, now I can finally get rid of that dirt strip on my base where the storage is. And remodel my everything (which I have wanted to do) without having to demolish it first.

    Oooh, looking at this, and what it does, I theorize that it actually doesn't remove the block at all. It just changes the Block's type, removes one block of the type being changed to from your inventory, and adds one block of the type being changed from to your inventory. Since the block is never being removed, furniture doesn't ever have a chance to pop free.

    This is something I will be making heavy use of when it arrives, since I do a lot of underground construction. I WANT IT NOW!

    I have a good feeling about 1.3.6.

    As much as this excites me, I have one thing to say. Stop hyping us up and give us 1.3.6 already, please.;(
     
  13. This looks like it will make tweaking your house SIGNIFICANTLY much less of a pain in the butt and honestly, i'm all for it.

    Cari sviluppatori di Terraria, vi scrivo a nome mio e del mio migliore amico. Sapendo che Terraria: Otherworld è stato cancellato ci ha molto deluso. Per tre anni, sono entrato in controllo ogni giorno se avessi avuto notizie sul gioco. Abbiamo atteso carichi perché eravamo consapevoli del grande gioco che poteva diventare. E oltre al danno lo scherzo. Per mesi, non dire nulla sulla versione mobile di Terraria. Ti stiamo aspettando da due anni per pubblicarlo, ma niente. Nelle notizie più recenti, quelle di dicembre, hai detto che nel primo trimestre del 2018 uscirà l'1.3
    Siamo a metà aprile e nemmeno una notizia. Dicci almeno qualcosa.

    This is incredible. I know I, personally, was a harsh critic (at least on my own time) of how long 1.3.6 has been taking, but I take it all back if I can. This is totally worth the wait.

    I have just one question:
    Can you use Nightmare Pickaxe + dirt blocks to mine hellstone ore without spilling the lava?

  17. Anyways, my base will be a castle with the Block Swap opition

    Don't worry, I doubt they'd tease such an exciting feature if 1.3.6 wasn't right around the corner.

    I really Really REALLY love it. But the worst part about this now is that we have to wait for it.

    The biggest thing this'll do (other than let you change the look of your base/chests ofc) is that it'll make it a lot easier to create a surface mushroom biome without destroying the natural look of the terrain.
