    This thread is discussing the console (PS4/XB1) version, not mobile.

    There are no details yet on specific device/OS version support for mobile.

    I recommend following Pipeworks on Youtube to help stay up to date. They've been putting out some pretty cool videos to showcase their progress. The link below goes to 6:20 on their latest Terraria video and shows an updated lava flow mechanic. I don't know if it's as cool as PC is, since I can't compare directly and they don't play with it much, but it's something at least. :)



    Now to go farm a few more Ocram masks and trophies.

    Part of the liquid mechanics were revamped from the original blocky style in 1.3.0, that's what you're seeing in that video. The wave/ripple effects which came later on PC also seem to be coming later on console. You can see the differences here.

    I wonder if we will be told when it's going through Cert or only once Microsoft and Sony have given the green light...

    Either way I'm ecstatic to finally play 1.3.

    In the past, there's been an official post made when a release or patch has been submitted to certification. I don't know if they plan to do it this time, but hopefully so.

    I already am, I watch every video they upload, just waiting for the video Titled "1.3 in cert testing" or something along those lines :)

    I know, my favourite so far is the Martian Madness event showcase video, I didn't really enjoy the dye showcase video, I wished they used ultra bright torches to fully show the dyes colours, those disco balls didn't do the video any justice :)

    Last upload on youtube pipeworks said it "Might" be in 2 or 3 weeks might I hope so but it also might not
     
  16. I have a question for the devs. That is, is the 3ds going to get the 1.3 or 1.2 update?

    Also stop bashing the devs coding is hard work and it takes some time. I should know I'm learning coding (I'm learning java)

    I really dont think some peoplr understand how long a process it is. Sure, the big companies like.....actually, not sure if I can say other companies (just think of the devs behind the biggest game this year or something like that), anyway. They see these massive companies churn out games/updates in a small ish time frame (a new COD game every year as an example), but they dont consider the fact that the companies behind these games consist of massive teams of devs.

    They then come over to these smaller companies with a much smaller development team and think "oh, these guys are just slow", not taking into consideration the differences in development team sizes.

    Then there's just those who have no idea what coding is and how much of a pain it can be.

    TL;DR, these guys arent a massive studio, and they arent making a movie. They are making an interactive game with a (I dont actually know the team size but I'm assuming its not massive) small team. It wont take them a month or 2 to completly recode the game, that is a fact.

    Sure is.

    It is a vaild point, of course - we often joke internally about the 10-15 minute long credits for some games. Ours are... not that. ;)

    That said, we do pretty well with our small team (PW's being bigger than ours but still small vs the megasize teams you see on AAAs)
