    As terraria reaches around the end of it’s cycle, modding has become extremely popular in the community, although many console and mobile players are missing out on these features.

    Unfortunately the console manufacturers (Microsoft and Sony) do not allow modifications on their consoles, so a tModLoader version can not be made for console versions of Terraria.

    And why they gotta be so cruel?

    No tmodloader is a large part of why I'm so pissed that console exclusives are getting axed.

    Not only are we not getting 1.3 till next spring at least (prove me wrong), but on top of that, we're also losing stuff that was unique to console.

    I wonder if turkor and the rabbit will get the same treatment?

    If mods are out of the question then we should at least get some sort of creation mode or maybe a way to customize a fresh world.

    Because policing mods is a lot of work and Microsoft and Sony hold a lot more responsibility for online interactions than steam does since steam is on a PC that would get online anyway.

    Bethesda got away with it with Skyrim and Fallout 4.

    Those games have mod support built into the game. tModLoader is a third party application and therefore forbidden.

    what's stopping Terraria from receiving an update that gives it mod support? Other than the developers not wanting to, that is.
     
    MaGicBush and MoeHolyGhost like this.

    There is a huge difference between 'wanting to' and 'being able to'. Implementing mod support retroactively, together with a platform that manages mod content à la Bethesda does takes a huge amount of labour that Re-Logic simply doesn't have (and if they did, they'd have to pause any and all development on other cool stuff).
