The Jellyfish Expansion is a thread I have made that will expand upon jellyfish and their role in gameplay. It will also work with other pre-existing terraria features and items to improve the overall experience of the game.
Will now have a 1/5 chance to drop pink jelly, and drop bouncy glowsticks instead of regular ones. Otherwise remains the same.
Now has a 1/3 chance to drop blue jelly, and drop sticky glowsticks instead of regular ones. Is now able to jump out of the water to attack the player.
Now has a chance to drop 0-1 green jelly. Also moves twice as fast as a normal jelly and emits extra light when jetting forward.
Will now spawn in the pre-hardmode jungle and have stats similar to that of the blue jellyfish.
The orange jellyfish will function like most others, save for the fact that it can travel out of water and will move the same way through the air. It has stats similar to that of the blue jellyfish, will drop 1-2 orange jelly several orange glowsticks, and spawn in the ocean and cavern layer. It emits orange light.
Will spawn anywhere where there is water, most commonly in the cavern layer. Drops 0-1 golden jelly and 4-6 spelunker glowsticks. Has stats similar to that of a blood jelly and moves like any other jellyfish. It emits the same light as the spelunker glowstick and also sparkles.
Will spawn in the ocean about as commonly as a skeleton. Drops 1-2 red jelly. It has stats similar to that of a blue jellyfish and moves by jumping across the surface of the ocean like a slime. It emits a pulsing red light.
The strange jellyfish is a rare jellyfish that will spawn anywhere where there is water. It has stats similar to that of the blood jelly and moves like any normal jelly, except that it will occasionally point its bottom side towards the player and fire a powerful white laser. It will drop one random set of strange dyes.
These jellies are dropped by some new and pre-existing jellyfish. They have uses in crafting recipes.
Is now used in the crafting of the bounce potion. It can be crafted with 2 bombs to make bouncy bombs, 3 grenades to make bouncy grenades, or 5 glowsticks to make bouncy glowsticks.
Can be used to craft a leaping potion. It can also be crafted with 2 bombs to make sticky bombs, 3 grenades to make sticky grenades, or 5 glowsticks to make sticky glowsticks.
Is now used in the swiftness and climbing potion recipe. It can also be crafted with 2 bombs to make slippery bombs, 3 grenades to make slippery grenades, or 5 glowsticks to make slippery glowsticks.
Is now used in the gravitation potion recipe. It can also be crafted with 2 bombs to make floaty bombs, 3 grenades to make floaty grenades, or 5 glowsticks to make floaty glowsticks.
Can be crafted with 2 bombs to make buoyant bombs, 3 grenades to make buoyant grenades, or 5 glowsticks to make buoyant glowsticks
Is now used in the spelunker potion recipe. It can also be crafted with 15 glowsticks to make spelunker glowsticks.
The following items are crafted with their respective jellies and throwables.
These items function like their normal counterparts, except that they are unaffected by gravity.
These items function like their normal counterparts, except that they have no friction.
These items function like their normal counterparts, except that they float in liquids.
Potion Changes and Additions
Crafted with green jelly, a blinkroot, and a cactus. This will increase your running speed by 35%.
Now crafted with golden jelly in addition to everything else, simply because of how powerful the spelunker potion is.
Fire Blossoms are replaced by orange jelly in this recipe for the purpose of making this item obtainable without going to the underworld.
Otherwise it remains the same.
Crafted with one pink jelly, a shiverthorn and a waterleaf. For those unlucky enough to have not found a horseshoe, this potion negates all fall damage and causes all
blocks to act like pink slime blocks.
Crafted with one green jelly, one waterleaf, one fireblossom, and one blinkroot, this potion will allow the player to walk up 1.5 block high surfaces.
Crafted with one blue jelly, a blinkroot and a moonglow, the leaping potion will increase the player's jump height by 2 blocks.
Crafted with one red jelly, a moonglow, and a fireblossom, the buoyancy potion will allow you to press W to quickly ascend while in a liquid, and press S to
quickly descend while in a liquid.
Buoyant Glowsticks and many of the buoyant-themed sprites were all made by @goldmelonmaster.
Anyways, that sums up my suggestion! I think that these new jellyfishes, items, and recipe changes can improve the overall terraria gameplay experience.
