Empress of Light
I always like your suggestions! Haven't check all of them but I bet they're good!


I'm honestly surprised you're not a game developer or something similar, I can imagine a development team really needing someone as competent as you to join them.
Nah. I'm only this good at it because Terraria is the best game on planet Earth.

I want whatever job Cenx has. Being a Re-Logic creative director would be a dream come true.


Cenx said she had recently implemented 4 community suggestions. The only one revealed was Baconfry's suggestion about prefixes, I believe. I'm not exaggerating but I wouldn't be surprised if one of your ideas are planned for the game.

I feel like almost every single one of my suggestions has a place in the game, but it's up to the developers to decide what they think would be most beneficial to the game. Some of my ideas visions of what my solution to a certain problem would be, but as long as they fix the problem itself in some way, I will be satisfied.

Sometimes I just throw stuff at the wall to see what sticks with the community. :p
