tModLoader Critter Craze!

Yuyutsu

Dungeon Spirit
Hey there, gang! It's me, Yuyutsu/PhoenixBlade, back from the dead! I know it's been a long while since I've hung around the Terraria forums, but I come back bearing a new mod:

icon.png
Critter Craze
icon.png

(Yes, I know it sounds like another mod of mine, Loot Craze, but I'm running out of alliterations here)
Now, what does this mod aim to do? Well, similarly to another mod, the Wildlife Mod (which I recommend you check out), this mod aims to brighten up an otherwise barren Terraria with multiple critters and small, friendly animals, along with plants. The mod currently adds:

- 43 Critters
- 106 Items
- 19 Critter Habitats
- 4 New Plants

Before we jump in to the specifics of the mod, I just want to say that the mod is hugely influenced by community ideas and suggestions! If you're interested in suggesting items and bouncing ideas around, please check out our Discord or suggest any new critters or items here! Let's jump right into the current content, though.

Important Note! No critter spawns should interfere with regular enemy spawns, as they do not count toward the enemy slot total.


Lanternfish (4).png

Fish! Though a lot of fish exist in Terraria, only a few can be found fishing around the world. Let's change that.

Ocean:
Kelpfish- Found swimming in schools in the ocean.
Coralfish- Found swimming in schools in the ocean.
Gulper- A jumpy little fish found in the ocean.
Luminous Floater- A glowing jellyfish found swimming in schools in the ocean at nighttime.
Gilded Jelly- A rare jellyfish. Drops a large amount of gold.

Underground:
Lanternfish- A glowing blue fish found in Caverns.
Ardorfish- A beautiful fish found in the Cavern Layer and below.

Gust (2).png

Gusts! Tiny little fellas found roaming around the world during weather events. Upon being caught, Gusts can create double jump accessories (Cloud/Tsunami/Storm/Sandstorm in a bottle)

Gust: A regular little gust. Found in the Sky Biome.
Snowy Gust: Found in the Snow Biome during rain.
Stormy Gust: Found anywhere except the Snow Biome during rain.
Sandy Gust: Found in deserts during Sandstorm events.

SpecularFish.png

New fish have been introduced, but they're actually familiar faces! Certain vanilla fish caught while swimming can now be found swimming around your world! They can all be caught with a bug net. The following fish are available in their respective biomes:

Quick patch, in which all I did was add a description to the mod browser download. All links on the main post are up to date, as is the mod browser.

Good stuff. This seems better than wildlife in every way.
Thank you guys! It does feel good to be back :)

Loving everything I'm seeing here -- looks like the perfect complement to the Wildlife Mod. Before I try it out, have you considered compatibility with Thorium in order to spawn schools of fish and new plant life in the Aquatic Depths biome? That was the first thing I thought after seeing the images.

Top-notch work as always, and great to see you back! :)

Gray, dangit!!! This is awesome, but YOUR mod is awesome, too.
[doublepost=1527853302,1527853237][/doublepost]Oh- Yu- awesome, as usual. Knocked it out of the park. It's just what I'm looking for for my newest playthrough. I think this will be amazing with Gray's wildlife.

Looks great, and it would appear there is some Starbound in here. That's cool man that's cool. Though when you say it doesn't "grow", it doesn't grow like... at all, so I can't place down seeds or nothing? I Guess that's fine, but that would depend on the quantity of the crops. owo

Edit: I've tested this out some with the wildlife mod and they go great together! Although, the lumoths and snowy gusts may spawn a tad to frequently imo.

Thank you! I made them not grow as I couldn't find an easy way to 'cap' the number of plants growing. I plan on introducing an item (sold by the Dryad) that replenishes the plants in your existing world. I'll also make the tiles placeable, in case you'd like to decorate your base with em.

I'll make sure to fix those spawns, too.

Beautiful mod man. I really like the design of the critters both detailed and aesthetic. Good work bro.
