Hello
Thank you developers for the usual surprises !!.

Now I wanted to consult because I do not understand well, this will apply to our version of terraria or we will have to buy it separately, I have the Steam version.

Thanks.

PS: Although I LOVE Terraria (it was my first original game that I ever bought) would like to see a new development something Sci-fi or Skyrim type, it would be great a Re-Logic RPG.

Thanks again for the joy of the updates, the moments of problems and you forget them (even for a while) in the world of terraria.

Hola
Gracias desarrolladores x las sorpesas de siempre!!.

Ahora queria consultar porque no entiendo bien, esto se aplicara a nuestra version de terraria o lo tendremos que comprar aparte, tengo la version de Steam.

Gracias.

PD: Aunque AMO Terraria (fue mi primer juego original que compre en mi vida) quisiera ver un nuevo desarrollo algo de Ciencia ficcion o tipo Skyrim, seria genial un juego de rol de Re-Logic.

Nuevamente Gracias por la alegria de las actualizaciones, los momentos de problemas y uno se los olvida (aunque sea un rato) en el mundo de terraria.

This is a free update for Terraria. If you already own Terraria on Steam, you will get the update for free. All updates for Terraria are free. it will just need to be downloaded if you don't already have it. If it is not updating I'd recommend verifying the integrity of the game files and it should update from there.

You guys should totally do just one more update with a desert boss, it should be pre hard mode too. I would recommend doing this because the snow biome now has it's own boss, so the desert should too, you know? I recon that if you guys do something like this, it should be around post evil boss or like pre EoC. You guys really should consider it, it would be SO COOL!

I've noticed a mistake in this update.

The Deerclops has its bestiary entry classified in the "Snow" and "Blizzard" cathegories. The problem is, the "Blizzard" cathegory was never added back in 1.4 (for those interested, the Ice Golem is in "Snow", "Rain", and "Rare Creature").

So, the mistake has three parts by now: 1) A "Blizzard" cathegory to filter the entries should be added, 2) The Ice Golem should be moved from "Rain" to "Blizzard", and 3) The Deerclops should be added to the "Boss Enemy" cathegory.

Should I open a bug report? If so, how?
You can report bugs in the PC Journey's End Bug Reports subforum.
I've checked your report and Ice Golem has the filters Snow and Blizzard. (As does Deerclops.) Are you seeing something different? If yes, please do post a thread in the bug reports subforum for further investigation.

Enjoying the update a lot so far.
There is one thing that's irking me though.
I wanna like the Deerclops fight, it's very interesting and different. My issue though, is the shadow hands that appear throughout the fight. I understand that they're meant to keep you from out-maneuvering the boss so much, but a lot of times they simply just spawn on me and I take unfair damage. Either that, or they appear so close to me, or come out from behind the boss' ice spike attack, that there's simply no time to react to them. I feel like I understand the boss enough to deal with him, but the cheap hits make me feel like I'm playing a slot machine, where my victory isn't earned through skill, but through luck. This takes the fun out of the fight for me.
I'm not referring to the anti-cheese hand attack either.

I know it might be set in stone already, but if I could make a minor change to the hands, it would be to not have them deal contact damage until a few extra frames have passed. So that way there's at least some window of time to react, however small. Or perhaps have them materialize for a second before performing their attack.
Those're my two cents. Thanks for all the hard work all these years later.

Just in case it isn't clear, Deerclops has two types of Shadow Hands:
- Out of Bounds hands: These spawn in all difficulties when the player is unreachable by Deerclops, typically in the air or underground. Spawns in groups of 6.
- Expert/Master Hands: These spawn perpetually throughout the fight, and are Deerclops' "Expert AI" change. They have nothing to do with positioning or being out of bounds. Spawns 1 at a time.

Your description makes it sound a bit like the Expert Hands are what is getting you? I might be misunderstanding.

Yeah, it's the expert hands. The Out-of-bounds hands are no issue for me, because they can be avoided if you're careful or don't make mistakes.

Greetings Terrarians - and welcome to The Constant!

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...

View attachment 345899

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. 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...

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?

DEERCLOPS - CLIPPING & CLOPPING, HERE COMES A STOMPING!

View attachment 345848

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 themselves 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. Let's check a couple of them out, shall we?

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.

View attachment 346546

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.

Something that might make the Constant seed's hunger mechanism more... palatable... in the early game would be to greatly increase the chance of fruit coming down when shaking trees. For the other sources of food, you need to first craft a cook pot, which means you need an anvil and 10 iron bars, which means 30 iron ore and a furnace, which means you need to craft the anvil or buy it from the merchant, and to craft the furnace, which means... And you also need the merchant so as to get a net to capture critters to cook, or use as bait to catch fish to eat. It's quite difficult to set all that up in the first few minutes of the game.

Perhaps mushrooms could count as food. Or at least reduce the hunger debuff by one step, e.g. if you're starving it sets you back to just hungry, if you're hungry it sets you back to just peckish, if you're peckish it resets the timer.

Is this going to still be a thing when you guys decide to release 1.4 on the Switch? Is there any updates on that? Any news before the end of the year or will we roll over into 2022?

i recall someone mentioning DST actually has a single player mode... if that's true, maybe i'll be able to transition to it from the original game.

but that limited-time offer of the chest with outfits in it... i wonder if that will be on the console version of DST?

since i'm sure the update would probably come out later on console, seems like console players might get screwed over.

the new terraria world seed looks pretty cool, just gotta wait several more months for console to get caught up to PC.

Well, Switch hasn't even got 1.4 yet and won't likely get this content for a long while after the PS / xBox gang will so, will the Switch owners get doubly screwed over?
