    I don't know about modded music boxes, but you can currently use modded banners. I'd need to do extra some special magic for modded music boxes, I'd guess.

    Not currently. I do want to add mini-bosses eventually, though.


    • Added support for Hamstar Helpers v1.2.0 issue report
    • Added mod icon
    • Added API
    • Minor internal refactoring

    Seems like this could be a good mod, though if you will implement random spawning invasions, then I believe their should be presets and such. Few examples I could think of are Slimy Revenge (The Slime King isn't finished yet. All of his minions are coming for revenge!) and Dungeon Onslaught (The denizens of the dungeon are not happy that you plundered their chests. They're coming to take it all back.)

    On a more serious note, concept sounds nice, but banner eating is... A bit much, I'd say? How about furniture item with it's own little interface, five banner slots, music box slot, crystal slot and a button to start invasion - and trophy slot or two, for bosses between waves? Several levels of furniture item with more slots? Amount of crystals affecting amount or waves, or their intensity? Invasion happening only in certain range from that furniture? Enabling it with wires?
    And more customization options - or fully customizable option with wire input for starting and output point for when invasion end, to be used in adventure maps as a part of arena, or endless variation for easy "custom biome" creation?
    Basically, I'd recommend using furniture over inventory item and then making a wider array of them, with different amount of options like slots, intensity, waves, range etc.

    How exactly do I use this? I've tried everything I could think of.
