    Hey! This is a great mod! Although I think I found a lil bug: seasonal drops, like halloween/christmas, and special mobs spawn and drop gifts and goodie bags, is that intended? Could it be mod incompatibilities? I am using other mods nothing major (I think) but hadn't encountered this issue till now, could be a coincidence. Everything downloaded with Tmodloader:
    - Where is my items (tried it after this mod)
    - Recipe Browser (same)
    - Better Yoyos
    - Max Stack Plus
    - Helpful Hotkeys
    - Vanilla Tweaks
    - Fargo Mutant Mod (also tried after)

    Any ideas? Also if I try to use CheatSheet I can't make/load any worlds, could it be this too? I know it may be off topic and I DID ask in their mod thread but I've not found a solution yet. I am a bit desperate haha, any ideas of what could be happening?

    I can assure you that's not coming from this mod.

    The only mod that should be doing that in your list is Fargo's. Ironically I one had the same problem as you and couldn't tell which mod this was coming from, until Fargo added in an update's notes that he reduced the number of holiday-themed mobs from spawning. I still wish he'd reduce it further yet.

    You are absolutely right, officially confirmed that it's Fargo's. Sorry about that, OP, your mod is just foine! And thanks for the reply, Lunatic Lobbyist, awesome nickname too.

    Would it be possible to increase the amount of buff effects you can have at once, past 20? I don't know if that's hard coded or not but I thought I'd suggest it.

    Does this work with tmodloader version 10.1? I'm using 10.0.2 and want to know if I can safely update.

    I don't see why not.

    The mod browser doesn't yet have the latest version (it's on 1.0.3.1).

    It shows up in my mod browser list...

    Try refreshing yours?

    Would it be possible to implement a feature that raises the maximum buffs cap?

    Playing as a fully buffed summoner can be a pain when you get a debuff and the game decides to erase all of your minions because of the cap.

    It's not easily possible to raise the buffs limit, since Terraria likes its magic numbers a lot and the buff limit happens to be one such number.

    It is possible to do something that combines buffs, but I'm not sure how this would be implemented gracefully...

    There is a mod out there that does what you're saying (combines buffs). I don't remember the name of it or all of the details, but IIRC, it has recipes that combine different potions into 1 potion that gives all buffs of the potions used to make it. Feels a bit too cheaty for me on my current playthrough so I didn't add it or bookmark it.

    On another note, just wanted to say the new feature you implemented in the last update is awesome. I always forget to eat food after the buff expires. I even looked up online a while back "Terraria how to remember to eat food" lol. Didn't find anything helpful though. Thanks for the update.

    UI scaling bug: click to renew/shift-click to auto-renew buffs doesn't work at 150% (I didn't test other UI sizes)
