    Introduction
    [​IMG]
    Fallen Isles, remade!

    Originally Fallen Isles was intended to be an expansion on the Sky Biome. While I still maintain that the Sky Biome could use a content expansion in general; I no longer believe Fallen Isles is the place for that to be suggested. In the grand scheme of things, I wanted to reel Fallen Isles back into the alternate Terraria that is being established among my suggestions. To that end, I have removed all the expansion content and remade the alternate.

    Fallen Isles is mostly influenced by angelic mythologies. There's a good deal of universe/story building here that you may or may not notice. But it's more appropriate when you have been witness or follower to my other alternates. Regardless of themes and tie-ins though, Fallen Isles, like all other alternate suggestions of mine -- is intended to be a stand alone alternate suggestion.

    Enjoy!

    Wow! I never thought someone could create such a interesting alternate Floating Island! Great work :dryadsmile:

    It's fantastic, but the problem is - floating islands fall too short compared to these. It'd not simply be a crimson-corruption type alt, this biome completely negates floating islands.

    Which is not good if either has a 50/50 chance to occupy a world.

    Not sure how I can.. I don't know how to complete my sentences. Really, you've done a fantastic job, and have improved a lot on spritework. I might form a coherent review when I've the time.

    I really like this suggestion, especially the starlord, I am not too sure if double potion recovery amount is balanced though. Still I like this suggestion.

    It's meant to be an expansion on the biome in addition to it's alternate status, as it says in the introduction. It was, at first, a straight alt -- but I found it to be rather bland and boring. So I pushed the concept and took more liberties.

    Forgive me if I say something stupid but is this going to replace the flying islands?
     
  8. Brick Creeper

    Brick Creeper Skeletron Prime

    In some worlds, like the crimson replaces the corruption.

    Not feeling the Medic's Aid, especially in the apothecary set. 600 health every minute, plus super Regen? Too OP, IMO.

    The only complaint I have is that it has a lot more content than Floating Islands, but that is fixed by also giving them more features.

    Only if you're willing to sacrifice an accessory slot for it -- it's utility is debatable, especially in end game where survival utility doesn't outweigh the benefits of damage utility.

    It would -- sometimes -- as Brick said, it's an alt. So somtimes you'd get Floating Islands. Other times you'd get Fallen Isles.

    Still, one could easily switch it and heal for 300 instead of 150 in battle.

    Okay thank you, I was worried that it would get in the way of one of my suggestions.

    That being said I give total support.
     
  14. TMB50

    TMB50 Terrarian

    That still wouldn´t be enough to compensate for most endgame events´ massive damage from enemies.

    One could also quickly switch armor sets before being hit.

    I would totally use that in conjunction with my heal mage. Also, 300 is over half normal health for someone attempting these events. You could also use it while just in the world, not just during events.

    True. But you can commit a division of time swapping in regards to most accessories and items. The decision comes down to the needed utility based on usefulness for the situation, and whether or not those situations require the effort of switching accessories mid-battle.

    Apothecary's Set may keep you alive for Fishron, no sweat -- but it might not actually help you get to wave 20 in Frost Moon, for example -- you may survive Frost Moon, you just may not progress as needed.

    The Apothecary's Set is meant to be an accessory that makes a defensive/survival accessory as competitive as a damage-based one. It is also ideal for newer players who don't have the skill, or otherwise don't have the means to overcome some aspects of hard mode, bosses, or events.

    Sure, ok. I still like everything else about this suggestion, too.
     
  19. Samrux

    But Floating Islands would be rendered completely useless; that's what I'm worried of. You can't make two alternate biomes, and have only one spawn on each world, while one of them contains four times more content, or items four times as powerful, than the other.

    As I said, the suggestion is fantastic, and I love it. The sprites are wonderfully made, and the post is perfectly structured. But this specific and very important point makes the idea... unbalanced?
    The most logical solution is to add more content to floating islands. Which would be a great idea, really.

    Otherwise, receiving floating islands in your world would be like having no pyramids in comparison with a world that does have pyramids. You're being denied content.


    Anyways, that's just the one thing that bothered me. Good job for your entire suggestion!

    Would it help if I added more loot to my sky expansion thread?
