    This needs to be in the game yesterday. It's a simple fix for quite a few problems that people generally have with Space. This gets my support.

    They could just let normal non-hallow mobs spawn (if that doesn't happen already)

    I ship it.

    Also, all of my support, this is probably the single greatest minor (major?) change that has been suggested thus far. Kudos, my friend.

    It's a minor change with major implications. That means maximum awesomeness/work required ratio = maximum "we need this" factor.


    Anyways @Snickerbobble I made the gold one:

    Terraria could just generate normal floating islands until HM and then generate additional already hallowed islands like I did in my mod ...
    Or you could simply convert the normal islands to hallow when you activate HM.

    [edited, was too unclear]

    Spawning additional territory is not possible. Generating normal floating islands and relying on self-conversion is unfair to those who don't read the wiki to find out that a Hallowed biome is needed to spawn Wyverns, which drop the ingredients to a very important hardmode item.

    It is, I did it ._. check my sig
    But I agree with the self-conversion being unfair.

    Even if its possible, we generally prefer not to have map additions outside the player's control, since it might override something the player has already built, and we definitely don't want that to happen. Even meteorites simply convert blocks instead of creating them.

    I am too lazy to write a review. So, Shadow Approves this Message.png In other words, I like this idea!

    It was on this thread, but what does that have to do with anything? (Not being rude, just asking.)

    Just wanted to see if someone could figure it out

    All I did was scroll up...... whatever. :p

    Still can be avoided, but yeah, anyway I was just giving a proposition, nothing special.
    + conversion of normal islands can be made automatic.

    btw is it just me or the terraria forum really freezes every now and then tonight ?

    Pre-Hardmode Hallow is something I've always wanted, but I'd never quite seen a good way for it to be implemented. Until now. Full support.
