Click here for Mod Support Despawning messages in chat A message will appear in chat notifying the player(s) that a boss has despawned. No more wondering if the boss has despawned or not; now you will KNOW as soon as it happens. Each boss despawn message has unique flavor-text to them, including special cases, such as the bosses leaving upon sun rise. Other messages include destroying lunar pillars and blood moon type events when ending. Item map detection Treasure bags and pillar fragments are highlighted on the full-screen map. Respawn Timer While dead, players can see how much time is left before they respawn. The last three seconds will have sound indicators. Boss Radar Bosses that are not on screen will show a directional icon on the edge of the screen Arrow is green when the boss is inline of sight and becomes red when the opposite occurs Boss Log The Boss Log is a new UI that provides information on bosses, including modded ones if supported! Its features include: Improved Boss Checklist See which bosses have been defeated and which boss is next. Split into 2, prehardmode and hardmode for your convenience. Click on the names to jump to the boss's page. Boss Pages Each boss page includes many features. On the left you will see the boss, its name, whether its been defeated or not, and which mod the boss comes from (or Vanilla). Records Every wanted to know how fast you can defeat the MoonLord? or see if you can beat Skeletron Prime going untouched? Or maybe you just like seeing how many times you killed a boss mercilessly. Well the boss log now records these statistics! Statistics include: Kills on boss, deaths to boss, Fastest/Slowest time to killing a boss, lowest health youve been in a boss fight, longest time without being damaged, and your best/worst boss attack count. Your best stats and you last fight's stats can be compared from the boss log. Spawn Item A boss's spawn item is viewable within the Boss Log as well as its recipe. (More on this may be in development) Loot Tables Displays the loot a boss can drop, and if obtained by the player, it gets "checked off". (A flaw in this is that it is not automated and that other mods must add in their loot with a call. I'm hoping proper automatic loot tables will become easily accessible later in the mod's future) Collectibles Bosses have neat collectible items that have a chance of dropping. There will be a checklist for these items. Collectibles include the boss mask, the boss trophy, and the boss music box. Upon collecting these 3 (4 for twins lel) items, they will appear in the display above them. Modded collectibles can be added via call, so be sure to let your favorite mods know!
