Standalone [1.3] tModLoader - A Modding API

You do have to keep in mind though that Discord has problems from time to time, as an example: I've hit this when trying to get information on a Starbound mod pack who's author has decided to do the very same thing and have information about the pack locked in some channel on some discord. I've also hit this problem trying to look up information on various Terraria Mods themselves who's mod authors have retreated away from these community forums for who knows WHAT reason...

Not everyone can join every single discord server just for information, so making it (referring to the announcement you referred to above...) publicly available on this thread would also help. Just saying.
That is a valid point, not everyone wants a discord account or has room for 1 more server. But, the purpose of the alpha is for rapid mod developer feedback. There is nothing to be gained from someone who finds a bug but doesn't talk to us in the discord chat about that bug. We also regularly maintain discord pins with known workarounds to issues we are currently working on. If people were posting here in the forums, the developers might never see it, or the back and forth time required to discuss an issue on a forum like this would be too frustrating to troubleshoot issues with. On the discord, we can immediately narrow down causes of issue.

I play the 1.4 version of terraria I still didn't understand how to make our own mod. I jus want to edit some stats of weapons, buffs, maybe more accessory slots that's all.

Hello folks,

Is there any way to resize the UI?

Alright, so:

I'm trying to get into modding, and without even modifying the newly-created mod file, this error message pops up when I try to reload+build. None of the tutorials I've watched have accounted for this issue, and I've looked online with many keywords to try and find a solve, but still can't find anything.

I've checked tModLoader's files and my mod's files for something named "Object", tried renaming the "obj" file in my mod file to "Object", and none of it has worked. I'm stumped.

Very sorry if this is a frequently asked question, I'm just confused as to what to do to solve this.

I don't know... really anything about C#, but judging by the error message, it looks like you need to reference a file. I have no idea how to do that, though, so my advice would be ask the Discord for help. Just tell them what you posted here in the modding-help channel, and you might be able to get someone who knows what they're doing pretty quickly.

Are you using Visual Studio 2022? If so, try uninstalling that, deleting its installer, and getting the 2019 version here. I had the same problem when I started a few days ago and doing this fixed it.

So, how much time left until we get tModLoader updated to 1.4?? The Journey's End update came almost 2 years ago and we still have nothing from tModLoader. And, no, tModLoader in alpha version is not valid here because it is laggy. I'm getting tired of waiting.-_-:rolleyes:

I can kinda understand, dude, I really want TModLoader to bw updated to 1.4 and its updates, cause as much as I love vanilla, I like using mods to add stuff or improve quality of life, like the Better Taxes mod, Nooby's OverPowered Mod cause it has a really powerful terrain destroying rocket launcher, or even Spirit, Tremor, and Calamity, but I'm hoping it wont be too much longer now.

Hello everybody,
I've just got into modding Terraria, and I'm coming across something I have no idea how to do. It's a bit ambitious, but any help would be appreciated. I'm trying to create a custom resource, similar to mana. Also, by "consuming" this custom resource, your character will gain buffs with animated visual effects, such as lightning around your feet for a speed boost, an increase in character size for a health boost, a glowing red outline for a damage boost, etc. Does anybody know how I would go about doing this? I am a bit new to coding, so I may be in over my head here, but any help would be greatly appreciated!
