PC Critter Expansion

    Critters have always played a small part in Terraria, and while they were expanded slightly in 1.2.3 and 1.3, i still feel there is room for improvement. Commence suggestion.

    First, i would make all(already existing) critters have 9999 defense, which means they would take only 1 damage from any source. This would make it harder to accidentally kill a gold bunny(poor paul) or truffle worm.

    Hallowed bunny
    40 health
    200 defense
    30 damage
    100% KB resistance

    The Hallowed bunny has high health and defense, but is slow, like the Corrupt/crimson bunnies. Spawns in the surface hallow. Is passive unless hit. While passive, it can be caught with a bug net and put in a terrarium.

    Hallowed squirrel
    300 health
    50 defense
    30 damage
    100% KB resistance

    Basically the same as the bunny.

    Hallowed penguin
    200 health
    30 defense
    20 damage

    Basically the same as the squirrel.

    Corrupt squirrel
    100 health
    5 defense
    10 damage

    Crimson squirrel
    120 health
    8 defense
    12 damage

    Crimson variant of the corrupt squirrel.

    Bionic bunny
    150 health
    60 defense

    looks like a normal bunny when facing right, but the sprite changes to a mechanical bunny when facing left. is passive until attacked, or when nighttime comes. spawns when at least one mech boss has been defeated. while passive, can be caught with a bug net and put in a terrarium.

    Mushroom bunny
    5 health
    9999 defense
    spawns in mushroom biomes. can be caught with a bug net and put in a terrarium.

    Small termite
    5 health
    9999 defense

    Found in Termite Nests. Can be caught with a bug net and put in a terrarium.

    5 health
    9999 defense
    Spawns randomly above and below ground. Can be caught with a bug net.

    Ant farm
    crafted with 5 ants, 5 dirt, and a terrarium.

    A small background object that would spawn ants. Spawns 1-3 ants when broken, the same way breaking rocks spawns worms. Can be crafted(though without the ant spawning mechanic) at an ant farm with 5 dirt.

    I thought this was good... But this...
    This makes it complete, in my eyes.

    I don't this is a really good idea, to be honest.
    I can't explain it, but it just doesn't work in my opinion.

    no problem. what do you think of the rest of the suggestion?
  5. The Ice Cube

    The Ice Cube Eater of Worlds

    The rest is fine, I guess.
    Something I've noticed though- The way you want the Bionic Bunny to look like is not really possible. You can't have 2 different sprites for 2 different sides as far as I'm concerned.

    not necessarily. the queen bee has different sprites for charging and hovering.
  8. The Ice Cube

    The Ice Cube Eater of Worlds

    Yes, but you want one side of the bunny to look like a regular bunny, and then the other one to look like a robot version of a bunny. For example, the Guide has his own sprite, but when he turns to the other side, the sprite you see is just a flipped version of the original sprite.

    I just don't like the idea of Hallowed Bunny being practically an enemy in the game because it deals damage to the player. all other parts I loved it!

    Cool ideas(and sprites.) I love the ant farm!

    The bugs look so cute :dryadpassionate:
    Also love the ant farm idea!
    ...and those ant hills, looks like a brilliant way to generate infinite critters for bait >:) Even though they are probably like 1% bait power...
