I did so not sure where you got that from.
And who was this post even aimed at?What are you even talking about? Prior to the update Terraria had it built in to upload a world and character plus download both. Multiplayer functionality was the only time ps+ was needed then. Now it's a bit different. Not sure where your nonsensical reply comes from.
There was a general mention of the old upload download feature coded in pre 1.3 I thought and I can say that it helped a lot because I don't do online gaming so no ps+. With 1.3 that feature is now different which does hinder some people who have kids who minecraft Terraria basically. That was all it was on my end of reading things.
I have 20/20 vision and still cant see the inventory, crafting menu, etc on my big screen TV. Thats saying something. They made it sooo much like PC, that we`re supposed to be 6 inches from the screen like they are at thier computer desks.Marcoboyle,
I'm not an admin., Designer, certified play tester, game designer, graphic artist, or in marketing. I don't have a degree in computer science, have a management or business degree, nor own either type of business.
That disclaimer said, I do have an electronic engineering degree, work at a health care company, am ex military, but more importantly I am also a DAD, Father, and avid game player.
My 9 year old said: "I'm not playing a game that's glitching anymore, or one I will lose items. I lost the Terra Blade DAD, I worked SO hard to get that. Why did they break my favourite game. And I can't even see it anymore."
My 9 year old has a vision disability in his left eye, and stood 3 feet from our huge TV, and could not even see the text then.
My 12 year old said: "Dad, I'm sorry, but I don't want to play it anymore. Maybe if they fix it, but maybe not. It's not the same game anymore. And I can't get my level back. We were in the middle of moving over our level and items from the PS3 and can't do that anymore either."
So I would quote your entire post, which every line hit home for us. They bricked our favourite game. How it got released is beyond my understanding.
And this link will likely get deleted but check out this:
How many PS4 games are on that list.....hmmm.

You can zoom in by pressing Options and reading the lower left corner, but I stay zoomed in most of the time on my 32" TV with a table with laptop and keyboard on between me and the TV so I'm quite close but to all that close.I have 20/20 vision and still cant see the game on my big screen TV.

Thats just insane.
You cant zoom in on the inventory screen, craft menus or bible print words.

I find the UI just fine now and it was awkward till after a while of playing and I just started back up again 1-2 days after this update was out! And I was up to the point where I was able to defeat Orcam which is gone now.
It had nothing to do with his age. I'm an ancient 43, and did the exact same thing. Every time I would finish playing on the PS4, I'd immediately upload it so I could pick up right where I left off on my Vita (and vice-versa), which I did often. I hadn't played the Vita in about a month, so I never downloaded my game from the PS4 & simply forgot. Thanks to this worthless "update"...well, we all know what happened next...Nope, it was the guy he made in that character slot on the vita months ago who basically had nothing. Now not only has he lost his items, he's now lost everything trying to use the upload download feature the way it used to work.
Now this is user error admittedly, but he's 8. How many kids play this game? By the looks of the posts complaining about Xbox delays I'd hazard a guess that a large majority of players are kids. Your systems need to be kid proof / idiot proof, whatever you want to call it before you release it to the wider public
We didnt either until it hit our systems. There were as far as I know no media releases of the testing or screenshots/videos saying of said "update" "This is what it will look like, please provide feedback."Maybe if the UI wasn't screwed up then this update may be good, but as an Xbox player I haven't seen the UI yet. Someone should share a screenshot of the UI.
They've said that it was announced prior to release, but I have no clue where. I have no reason to read up on games that have worked great or have remained basically unchanged for years (or both, like the console versions of Terraria). There were no notifications either ingame or on the PS4's notification list. It just happened, and now we're stuck with this downgrade.We didnt either until it hit our systems.

That is one of the problems right there no one else should be using your account, you should make a 2nd account for them! And I'm having a blast with this update!I have a son who plays on my account and he lost his items because this 1.3 is to be frank, a bit of a steaming pile
You only back up save to PS+ and USB Drives I use like 3 USB drives and PS+ and anytime I take a break for while or it crashes I back save up on a different USB Drive then the last time when I backed them up.Console players aren't used to mucking about with files and drivers
The UI good after few hrs of playing and changing the control settings, I've set the shoulder buttons to where R2 uses items/tools and L1, R1 move through the toolbar L2 is grapple, Square is open to being anything needed mainly Quick Heal or Quick Mount, Circle is Interact, Triangle is Inventory, D-Pad is shortcuts that you have to reset each time you enter a world.Maybe if the UI wasn't screwed up then this update may be good
I don't' know what downgrade you're talking about cause I'm having a blast with this while either in single player or while hosting Multiplayer even have a UFO Mount! I got 2 and my online co-op partner got the other,now we're stuck with this downgrade.
The UI isn't the controls. It's stuff like the map, inventory, or the hotbar.The UI good after few hrs of playing and changing the control settings, I've set the shoulder buttons to where R2 uses items/tools and L1, R1 move through the toolbar L2 is grapple, Square is open to being anything needed mainly Quick Heal or Quick Mount, Circle is Interact, Triangle is Inventory, D-Pad is shortcuts that you have to reset each time you enter a world.
It takes the controls to even play the game and to control the UI... they go together can't have one without the other! And it is better now cause before there was no Mini-Map but seem like mob locations don't show up anymore but most bosses or mini-bosses seem to show on mini-map.The UI isn't the controls. It's stuff like the map, inventory, or the hotbar.
Hi @-Zifrod,thanks for sharing this feedback, Pipeworks is listening to everything sent in.Hi, I had some of my older worlds on my PS4 not converting through the new update. I had about seven worlds and only three of them were converted. Unfortunately, the 2 ones I really cared about were left behind... I was wondering if there was anything to do or if an update could help. I cannot download anything with the option made for it, it only crashes the game.
Other than that, I like the new update, expert mode is amazing to me, the feeling of seeing your charcter while your inventory is open is awesome and I also like all the options for constrols. A bit bigger texts, a way to choose the sensitivity of the cursor, having the option to quit without saving (or the upload and download with the cloud (sometimes my little sis and bros play with my worlds/characters...)) would be welcomed! Thank you
