tModLoader Dictionary of Prefixes - Reforging Expansion Mod

leafsaber47

Terrarian
First real attempt at a mod. Turns out starting small with mod creation is a better idea. Second attempt at this thread since my first draft disappeared. The following paragraph is not what I really remember the first time making this.

Dictionary of Prefixes
icon.png


A small mod that uses 72 adjectives/words for modifiers/prefixes in Terraria. Attempts to stay around vanilla Terraria modifier/prefix values due to the price change limit set by the Legendary modifier and its equivalents. It also, however, expands the accessory modifiers/prefixes to the point where it closely emulates the process used to reforge weapons, which means accessories will now roll negative modifiers/prefixes.

That's awesome. Would you happen to be able to create new prefixes? I've always been curious to see what would happen if a weapon like the Arkhalis (Or the Crissaegrim from Symphony of the Night) did zero knockback and just essentially became a hitbox of death for something.

I don't want to make prefixes that exaggerate values (having a prefix change a stat by more than 30%), so the best you'd get in Vanilla is Ruthless. Zero knockback means -100% knockback. Though, if you want minimal knockback (-30% knockback) then I'll try to find an adjective for that theoretical prefix. My English lexicon ain't that big.

Not a huge fan of Rainbow Dash. Spike or Twilight honestly.

I think "Negating" might do it if it wipes clean any semblance of knockback, or at least has so little knockback that the creature basically just stays inside of the hitbox of the weapon to allow for repeated uninterrupted hits.

Just for kicks and giggles, would -100% knockback mean it knocks you towards the player? :p As in, it actually pulls you in towards the player?

Is it possible for affixes to have "weighting"? So it will be like Diablo-like affixes, the rarer the higher the value
Optional, each prefix will have range of value, so it isn't fixed. And only high valued items can have high level of affix (only sword with 1 plat can have up to Merciless affix)

ex (disregard the name, it's just placeholder):

Jagged : +8-10% damage. Rarity: 8. Spawned on items valued >1 silver
Vicious : +11-13% damage. Rarity: 8. Spawned on items valued >5 gold
Brutal : +14-17% damage. Rarity: 5. Spawned on items valued >10 gold
Cruel : +18-22% damage. Rarity: 5. Spawned on items valued >20 gold
Tyrannical : +23-27% damage. Rarity: 3. Spawned on items valued >40 gold
Merciless : +28-30% damage. Rarity: 1. Spawned on items valued >1 plat

So, the chance of Merciless will appear on reforge is 1/30 on +%Damage affix assuming it's a weapon with sell price above 1 platinum

Then, add the other variation of affixes like attack speed, move speed, size, additional damage (flat increase of damage), crit chance, crit damage, poison, life/mana regen, life/mana steal, life/mana on kill or even super-rare Unique modifier like "Critical chance is 25%", "Enemies explode on Kill", "+1 Damage per 1 Defense", "% less Mana Cost", "30% more Damage when Life is below 35%", "30% Damage taken from Mana before Life", "%Chance to Trigger X spell on Hit"

This feels like it some parts of it would be more suited for Even More Modifiers (causing debuffs and special effects). I'm not a coding master anyways.

That and because I'm basing these modifiers on Vanilla bases/values, these modifiers have to be equally weighted. Vanilla prefixes probably did this iirc.

more negative modifiers please lol

idk time to hit up the dictionary again

Thanks @Sapharan for the Polish translation. After a good while, I've got the necessary values implemented.
Therefore, a new version has arrived! Version 1.1 adds the first non-English localization, Polish.
All 66 prefixes and associated accessory tooltips have been implemented in another language.
Left me know if any other bugs arise.
 

leafsaber47

Terrarian
Version 1.1.1 has arrived and with it two new prefixes. These negative prefixes are Lousy and Languid, and they are as bad as they suggest.
Also Fierce has been nerfed due to the presence of pickaxes.
 

leafsaber47

Terrarian
Version 1.1.2 has arrived. It's pretty minor: it only adds one new prefix, again negative. Tired was used as a prefix but Exhausted has not. That new prefix solves that issue.

Also, we've reached a pretty nice amount of prefixes: 69.

This might be the last update for a while. Hopefully you can find me being more active somewhere else. See ya.

A little bump: Still accepting and looking for translations of all the mod's prefixes!
Looking for the rest of Terraria's official translation languages (includes German, Italian, French, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Simplified Chinese) and Japanese.

Hey, neat! I might try this soon.
What'd be cool is if you could do Throwing-specific prefixes. I'd love to see, say, Throwing prefixes with more focus on crit, velocity and use time compared to vanilla ones.

I could try adding accessory prefixes that improve throwing weapons (damage, crit chance, velocity) soon if you want.

Onward to the main point...

What's this: a new, minor update? Yes it is, bringing in the words Draggy and Unstable to the Reforging Lexicon. Be warned, they're both negative. 1.1.3 also boasts a better compatibility with Calamity by nerfing select prefixes when the respective mod is installed. Find it on the Mod Broswer or the first post.

Mod still only has English and Polish localizations, so please help with translation if you can!

Well, as someone who spent way too much time on his own mod... there shouldn't be any rush! It's a free idea.
I'm honestly not sure how possible it would be to replace the automatic Ranged prefixes for nonconsumable Throwing weapons.
