Cheat Sheet is a tool for developers and those who just want to play around with any vanilla or mod items/recipes/NPC.

A special thanks to the Gameiki team for developing the UI toolkit used and the original design and code for the Item Browser and the amazingly sweet-looking Hotbar, along with their corresponding textures. Without them, this mod would look super ugly.

For now, Cheat Sheet consists of an Item Browser, an NPC Browser, a Recipe Browser , and a special Section where other modders can add their own buttons.

The main interaction. Designed to stay discrete and out of the way until needed.
Press K (or whatever hotkey you've assigned to "Toggle Cheat Sheet Hotbar") or click the button at the bottom center of your screen to view the Cheat Sheet Hotbar to access all the items. Press/Click again to hide it along with the selected item.

Hotbar: Easy to use, looks nice

Item Browser:
Click an item to grab a full stack of that item or Shift-click to move a full stack of that item immediately to your inventory. The category buttons and the search field can be used to filter the list of items.
ItemBrowser: Name filtering.

ItemBrowser: Category/Mod filtering

NPC Browser:
Click any NPC to spawn it in front of your character. Use categories and search filter to find the NPC you desire.

NPC Spawner/Browser

Recipe Browser:
Click on any Recipe to see details. Use categories and search filter to find the recipe you want. (The standalone Recipe Browser mod has many more features)

Recipe Browser

Paint Tools:
Click to reveal a a shelf of tools. Think TEdit or photoshop but in-game.

Eye Dropper/Paint Tiles

Paint Tools -- Schematics Browser:
An online database of Schematics submitted by users. Vote up or down. Don't upload a lame schematic or you'll have bad ratings and be unable to submit additional schematics.

How to submit
Light Hack:
See everything around you without placing torches.

Extra Accessory Slots:
Choose between 0 and 6 extra accessory slots. (I know, overkill.) Note that these slots will not have a visual affect on your character. The items in the slots will save with your character. Also note that you can bypass typical accessory limits.

I don't know why I did this....

Mod Extensions:
A special area with buttons from other mods. Currently the following mods implement an extension:

More tools will be added over time.

Yes! YES! Finally somebody made a cheat menu! Great job!

P.S. I noticed that modded animated items are not animated in the GUI. It just shows the .png file.

Cheat Sheet is a tool for developers and those who just want to play around with any vanilla or mod item.

For now, Cheat Sheet consists of only an Item Browser. (modeled after the Gameiki menu from 1.2 Terraria days)

Item Browser:
Press K (or whatever hotkey you've assigned) to toggle the Item Browser on and off. Click an item to grab a full stack of that item or Shift-click to move a full stack of that item immediately to your inventory. The category buttons and the search field can be used to filter the list of items.

I so need this.
Is it okay if a make a review on this mod? If so, I'll credit you in the description of the video.
Holy mother of god! Awesome mod! And here comes a question - is it possible to make a mod like Neo's Recipe book? Cheat menu is good but it would be nice to have a mod recipe book so it could be possible to see all the items from mods and their recipes in-game.
Oh my god. Yes. Finally a mod that basically lets me pick and choose things. That'll come in so handy while doing things. Thumbs up for this mod from me! Also I totally can see mod creators and their cheaty items now too.
