August 9th 2015 It's been a little bit of time since we've made an announcement, and this is because it's been a busy summer for the whole team, and of course Terraria 1.3 had to be played on expert mode. With this said we currently are on a slight dev pause (@Jestex is still pushing out sprites though, so give him an applaud) while we figure out the best way to import our STW changes into the new updates of Terraria - every time Terraria updates we need to decompile it and add our code back to it. With that said if you wish to play STW 1.5 you will need Terraria 188.8.131.52, and thus I have all of that packaged up for you: http://bit.ly/1gNcGXD To install navigate to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\ rename your Terraria folder to TerrariaVanilla and then unzip the .rar from the link to this location and now you will have a new folder named Terraria that is Terraria 184.108.40.206 with the STW mod. Please note that if Re-Logic pushes an official update through Steam it will replace your Terraria 220.127.116.11 and STW and you will need to repeat this process. We hope to have some new content coming up for you all shortly, so stay patient and keep up the feedback! June 26th 2015 It's been over a month since the last release and that's because we've been quite busy on making one last GREAT update to hold you all over until Terraria 1.3 comes out. There's a new quest in the release called Minecart Madness, new ore regeneration mechanics - if you haven't seen the spoiler video you can by clicking here, and we've done A LOT of remapping of Sivania to help all players navigate above and below ground without getting stuck - this will make getting mining and combat levels much more pleasant. Oh and to start the new quest just head on over to the mining village of Sivania and find the Demolitionist. He has had a bit a trouble with the newly implemented Minecart Junction. I'm sure a reward will help keep you on track! You can view the complete changelog below: Changelog v1.5a Code: ********************** Version 1.5a ********************** * ~NEW~ Minecart Madness Quest has been added! Head on over to the Mining Village of Sivania and find the Demolitionist to start the quest - he's had some trouble with the newly implemented Mining Junction of Sivania. * ~!!!~ Sivania has had a big update to not only help players navigate, but also to add more atmosphere to the game - Some areas still under construction and this is pointed out now. Some new features include: - New directional (Right and Left) signs help indicate where things are. - New mine shafts have been added in the Eastern parts of Sivania; an Upper and Lower section. - Clear path the Bait Shop has been added. - Areas that are underconstruction are clearly marked by signs now to give you a warning. - Ore deposits are located within and nearby the mining shafts. * ~NEW~ With the huge update to Sivania we have introduced a new ore regeneration mechanic: - Ore is statically located in the Upper and Lower Eastern Mines of Sivania. - When ore is mined it will turn a darker color and cannot be mined for a fixed amount of time. - When the ore respawns it has a chance of spawning a different type of ore. - After ore has been mined, even if the ore is still there, it has a chance of changing its type. - Copper-Platinum ore will now spawn in said ares.
