Sprites Archaic Tower (Alternate Living Tree)

    an alternate living tree

    Warning! This thread is kind of massively small. Ha, that's right. Small.

    Welcome to the Archaic Tower! As you probs know already, this is an alternate to Living Trees. My alternate work has become large enough now that a lot of things have alternates and a lot of those things are pretty deadly to the player. So I assumed it was due time to provide something a little more beneficial to the player to take some of the edge off.

    So Arachic Towers function almost identically to Living Trees. They take up a lot of vertical space, they host a chest and some furniture, and you can utilize them for your own benefit. There are a few differences. The major difference is that Archaic Towers have 1-5 (based on the tower size and the world size) empty rooms, not just 1. And that's pretty much it. Horribly game-breaking, I know -- RIP Balance, cue crying.

    Hope you enjoy it anyways!

    It's :red:ing good. I mean, suggestion is good.

    The only complaint I have is that it doesn't seem like there's much point in making Archaic Bricks only drop part of their materials, as that merely means that a surplus supply of Stone is required in order to be able to correct building mistakes.

    It's fine considering the absolute abundance of Stone in every world. Also -- I didn't want you to lose both materials if you chose to remove a brick.

    I really like the style of these items, and I'd definitely set up in a tower in my own world. Simple, yet stunning as always.

    I really like your alts; they're always well thought out and planned.

    This would be fine anyway. For example, Leaf Blocks consume Wood to be placed but you get nothing back when they're broken. I'd be fine with Archaic Bricks dropping nothing, but dropping Clay only is a good compromise.

    I really like this suggestion, although I'm not sure that it should be an alternate to living trees. It'd be weird to just see 3-4 of these randomly around your world instead of giant trees. Maybe It'd make more sense to have 50% of the living trees be replaced by a tower.

    I'm afraid I can't relate to your dilemma. Ancient towers, outposts, and other fortifications are staples and tropes of the fantasy genre. Some would argue they make just as much, if not more sense, as having a giant tree in the game.

    Pretty sure even on a large world theres only 1 or 2 trees and only some of them have loot.

    I've had a world with about 5, and I just think that it'd make sense for giant trees and archaic towers to coexist.

    Pretty sure (based on world size) you can have 0-5 Living Trees. And of those 0-5; none, some, or all of them could have loot.
    Could make sense. And I wouldn't mind if they appeared together. But for the purposes of the suggestion, it'll remain presented as an alternate. Should the devs ever pick it up -- I wouldn't be opposed if they decided to mix it up. Though I'd be curious to know if there are any limitations on sub-dividing Living Trees with something else when it comes to world-gen.

    Woo! A new ALT suggestion! Overall I really like this for its colour scheme (I love Orange) and the general idea of a tower like structure. It would be almost spooky to come across this during the night in Terraria XD

    Great ALT as always, keep up the great work!

    I kind of want to try replacing livingwood sprites with these ones, but I'm not sure if there are enough sprites here to do that.
  18. Redknight910

    Well, usually these alts mimic the number of materials in a biome (how many blocks are involved, furniture sets, etc.) While giving it a new look and different items, so I think a retex should work fine.

    I think the only thing I would need would be a tileset for the blocks. Anyone willing to make one? c:

    Wonderful! I love the feel of this one. I'd prefer it to the trees.
