    Greetings, Terrarians!

    We are pleased to share that the latest update for iOS and Google Play has been submitted for release and should be live to your devices in the very near future - likely over the next 24h!

    As a reminder for anyone that missed our earlier announcement, this update will bring Extra Save Slots as well as a World & Characters "Save" Backup Function to Mobile Terraria! Beyond doubling your existing number of save slots for worlds and characters, this long-desired feature will allow you to copy worlds and characters (like you can on PC, for example) - allowing you to create regular backups of your most important saves. We hope this will help lessen the sting in the event that you run into some nasty issue that messes up your worlds or characters! In addition, this new functionality will allow players to do things like moving save files from device A to device B using the cloud.

    Extra Save Slots
    • Characters: Players will now have access to 6 Local and 6 Cloud save slots
    • Worlds: Players will now have access to 6 Local and 3 Cloud save slots
    These save slots are available for use with the new Backup Function and/or to create new Characters and Worlds - it will be entirely up to you in regards to how you choose to use them!

    Backup Function
    For further clarity, this will allow players to make a copy of any existing local or cloud file to any other open cloud or local save slot that they have. For example:
    • Local - Local
    • Local - Cloud
    • Cloud - Local
    Unfortunately, Cloud - Cloud is not possible at this time.

    These will all now be possible for the file safety of our players and for their convenience when moving between devices.

    To learn all about how the new Backup Function works and how to make it work, we put together a quick Instructions Thread together for your use:


    Of course, this update also comes with our latest round of bug fixing on the mobile platform. We have made a ton of progress thus far this year in finding and squashing tons of bugs - with your amazing help. We plan to continue along this road to providing you the most stable experience that we can before we launch into future plans (which we will share as soon as we can).

    Amazon and Windows Phone will be receiving this functionality (as much as possible - WP does not have a cloud save option currently) in the near future. We wanted to get the fixes that we released this past week out the door first and ensure their stability before adding more on top of that. Apologies for the delay, but we hope to have you all back at parity with iOS and Google Play shortly. We will share more on progress and timing as we have it!

    Awesome! I REALLY encourage everyone to make use of the backup system early and often. This has been so useful to me on PC...and I found it pretty simple to use on the Mobile side.

    Crashes and file issues happen - manual backups turn those from massive heartbreak into a minor inconvenience. ;) to see the ongoing bugfix train keep rolling on. :)

    wooohoo! lots and lots of fixes. thanks for such an amazing port!!
    EDIT: the "fix for fish quest counter not incremating" or something of the like. does that mean we now can do our fish quests across multiple worlds and dont have to play a 6 hour session to get improving rewards?

    My understanding is that they wanted to be sure that Amazon was stable with the recent update they have been working in parallel on GP/iOS. The good news is that the "gap" between the two is now very much shorter...and things moving after that SHOULD be at parity. Sorry about that extra delay. :(

    Game crashes and freezing was the main problem for me .. But also the cloud save is a bigger thread ... I lost an endgame character from my cloud save

    With this build or previously? If previously, that is precisely what the backup is there for could have had a second copy on your local device and then just restored it.

    Im happy that a bug i posted early this month as was noticed by a dev was already put into the bug fix list!
    There's quite a few on this list I'm happy about. And hopefully the fire imp fix is lowering that rate not raising it!

    Also i found a typo in the list. On the glass bowl drops bowl, "Glass blow" was put in the list instead of "bowl"

    Also i very recently saw that the magic emblem (WoF drop) doesn't effect minion damage (or at least the stats dont show as effected)
    it did effect minions on pc until 1.3 when they added a 4th emblem.

    There is a fix for the google drive cloud saves. (Idk which versions actually connect to google accounts, i use google play version. Google drive has a menu to manage recent edits to any file. When the game sends its updated saves google drive stores the old version for up to a month and displays the newest version. These files can be reached on the desktop layout of your google drive. (Hard to do on mobile and only possible by viewing desktop site.) I prefer to backup/download the 2 newest (label them as such) and then you delete the current. (It might be a pain to get the game to load the edit or could require some more deletes.)
