    Congratulations on your purchase of the Dig-Dug Dog bulldozer! Now you will be able to mine massive areas with ease. Be sure to maintain your Dig-Dug Dog properly by regularly visiting your nearest certified dealer.

    Please be aware that the Dig-Dug Dog's warranty does not cover:
    • Damage from ferocious wildlife.
    • Attempting to use on an incline.
    • Falling.
    • Attempting to operate under water.
    • Dogs with orange eyebrows.
    • Damage from lava or other hazardous materials.
    • Falling.
    • Operating the machine on structures with insufficient support.
    • Attempting to mine metals more durable than the machine's manual recommends.
    • Thin ice.
    • And especially falling.
    Consider upgrading to the all-new Super Dig-Dug Dog. Mine even faster and even more metals!

    This is the type of thing someone puts the Thomas the Tank Engine theme over while they chase away from King Slime. I approve!

    More vehicles ? Npc's who do the work for payment ?

    It's a mount. Probably should make that more clear.

    Ah, I see. I don't have any plans for now. Partly I'm waiting on feedback about these mounts. Partly I'm just thinking of these as pre-Drill Containment Unit equipment. Not sure what else I would add.

    As for the NPC's. I don't really have any idea on how to do something like that. I've yet to touch NPC's in coding.

    great but some improvement needed.

    - moves faster for the super version ( it moves like a snail.. )
    - able to dig thru trees ( every time when you go near a tree it despawns )
    - only works on flat surface ( would be great if it does works on slopes / hills

    The super version does move faster... than the normal one. Heh. I'll consider it. Getting the animation to look right when it's moving faster was a problem.
    The tree thing... I'll do some more tests and see if I can find the problem and fix it. I thought I had it working.
    The flat surface thing is completely intentional and I'm unlikely to change it.

    Does the Super Dig-Dug Dog warranty cover those things that the Dig-Dug Dog doesn't?

    Great mod, but it is sadly outdated

    Man oh man, I do truly wish dtim could be generous enough as to update this for This looks like an amazing mod, and it would go so far in reshaping the world before we get the Drill Containment Unit.

    I am glad to announce that I ported Bulldozer to current tModLoader! Permission granted by the author.
    Will add content to this mod whenever I feel like it.

    This mod can now be found under "Bulldozer Reborn" in the Mod Browser (the links in the OP are deprecated)

    I don't know how hard it would be to do this but, a balancing trait might be that the pre-HM bulldozer takes on the highest pre-HM pickaxe power in your inventory.
    The HM bulldozer would take on your highest pickaxe power in general.

    The pre-HM bulldozer would have a base pick power of 55-59% (gold/platinum pick) because of what it's made of.
    The HM bulldozer would have a base pick power of 180-190% (adamantine/titanium pick).
