tModLoader Malicious Mod

Hi everyone! I'm a new modder that wants to make...well...mods :indifferent:

This is my first (decent) mod: the Malicious Mod!
This mod is going to add many bosses alongside new game content like weapons, crafting items, accessories, enemies etc.

This mod got its first "big" update: the Cavern Update! (v0.21)
In this update I added new bosses, enemies and weapons to enhance the Cavern Layer experience, alongside various more things.


And also... added Boss Checklist Compatibility!

And now… Spooky Update! (v0.26)

This mini update was supposed to be released on Halloween, but it took longer than expected...but you can still enjoy it!

Here are the current contents of the mod:
  • 4 Bosses with custom AI​
  • 32 Weapons​
  • 8 Accessories​
  • 4 Armor sets​
  • 1 Town NPC​
  • 9 Enemies​
  • 1 Event​
  • ...and more!​

NOTE: I'm the only one currently developing this mod, and I'm not very great at spriting large bosses, so for now some of the sprites aren't that great.
If someone wants to help just write me with a message here and I'll provide you the way to contact me. I use Discord and…mostly Discord.
I don't currently have a Discord server for the mod, but I plan to make it in the future.


For now, the mod adds 4 new bosses with custom AI made by me (could be buggy, I'm still new to the custom AI making) that could challenge the player in many ways!

The Flesh Amalgamate

FleshAmalgamate.png


The Flesh Amalgamate is a Pre-Hardmode Blood Moon boss. Its summoning item is dropped rarely by Blood Zombies and Dripplers, and can be summoned only at night (doesn't need to be a Blood Moon).
Its gear and armor is flesh/blood themed, to make the blood moon a more interesting event.
In the boss progression is a bonus boss placed between the Eye of Chtulu and the Queen Bee, its drops can make early/mid Pre-Hardmode much easier!


The Mosquito Mother

MosquitoMother.png


The Mosquito Mother is a Pre-hardmode jungle boss. She can be summoned in the Jungle using the Mosquito Doll, craftable using the drop of Mosquitoes, that spawns in the jungle after the Queen Bee is defeated.
It's supposed to be fought at least after the Queen Bee, but it's better if fought after Skeletron.


Battron, the Cave Ruler

Battron.png


Battron is a pre-hardmode cavern layer boss. He can be summoned with the Bat Snack while in the Cavern Layer.
It's supposed to be fought after Skeletron, because its fight will be a tough one. Prepare an arena and get ready to dodge his Sonic Wave Attacks!
If you will manage to defeat him, new enemies will start spawning underground, finally free from his oppression.


The Grand Granite Worm

GGW.png


The Grand Granite Worm is a colossal, pre-hardmode granite cave boss. It is summoned using the Granitic Sonar in the Cavern Layer (you can fight it anywhere in the cavern layer, without being limited to the Granite Caves).
This is the tougher of the four bosses, fought right before the WoF, dealing extreme amount of damage with its head, going through blocks and shooting energy sparks at the player, so it's highly recommended a big arena and an appropriate mobility setup.

The boss sprites are obscured to not ruin your experience with my crappy boss sprites;)
The Malicious mod adds some new enemies to the game, to enhance the experience even more.

Mosquito.png

Mosquito
Spawns in the jungle after defeating the Queen Bee. It drops the Mosquito Dust, a material needed to fight 2 new bosses and make a useful armorset.

Silverfish.png

Silverfish
Spawns in the Cavern Layer after Battron is defeated. It drops the Antennae, a decent pre-hardmode sword.

Stoneling.png

Stoneling
Spawns in the Cavern Layer after Battron is defeated. It hides under the resemblance of a strange stone, just to throw itself to the player if he gets near. Drops some stone and the Stoned Staff, a minion staff that can prove useful in many situations.

GranitewormHead.png

Granite Worm
A large stone worm that spawns in Granite Caves after Battron is defeated. It can drop Granite Teeth that are used in the crafting of the Granitic Sonar, the item used to summon the Grand Granite Worm, but they could be a challenge to beat for the unprepared player, making Granite Caves a more dangerous place.
The Bones Horde

BonesHord.png


The Bones Horde is a Skeleton/Halloween themed invasion to be fought after skeletron. It requires a Spook Medallion to be activated, and can be fought only at night. You can get many different types of loot from this invasion, like accessories and weapons that can be very useful in pre-hardmode, and the powerful Necro Necklace.

Different types of skeletons spawns during the invasion:
- Armed Bones
- Skeleton Gunslingers
- Skeleton Casters
- Jack-o'-Skulls
- ...And the invasion miniboss at the end, Skulltron.
The Malicious Mod also adds some extra weapons to the game, and for now it adds 13 new non-boss-related weapons.

Styringuer.png
Styringuer
A little, but very useful shortsword. Dropped by the Mosquitoes, steals life on every hit!

Antennae.png
The Antennae
Dropped by Silverfish underground. Could be a good mid-hardmode sword to get due to its speed and size!

StonedStaff.png
Stoned Staff
Dropped by Stonelings underground. Summons a little, but deadly Boulder that "follows" you around!

CaveLordClaymore.png
Cave Lord's Claymore
The ultimate pre-hardmode weapon every cave master should have. Crafted at a Demon Altar with Hellstone Bars, various types of stone and all the gems found underground.

TheGrassHopper.png
The Grass Hopper
This powerful pre-hardmode gun can shoot bouncing grasshoppers! It's crafted with a Handgun, 20 grasshoppers and 12 Vines. The only problem will be to catch its ammunitions...

FireBouquet.png
The Fire Bouquet
Crafted with 3 Flowers of Fire, it does exactly what you should expect.

FrostBouquet.png
The Frost Bouquet
Exactly like the Fire Bouquet, but this time...chiller.

PrismaticGun.png
Prismatic Gun
An upgrade to the space pistol, this giant crystal prysm shoots a lot...with a downside in precision. Crafted with a Space Pistol, 50 Crystal Shards and 15 Souls of Light.

AncientSword.png
Ancient Sword
Crafted with a Bone Sword and a Broken Ancient Blade, a rare drop from the Bones Horde. Great to fight big groups of enemies due to its power, the Ancient Rage, that triggers every time an enemy is killed, increasing damage and melee speed (of any melee weapon!) for a small amount of seconds, and increasing in power for a max of 3 times for every enemy killed.

MechanicalAssaultRifle.png
Mechanical Assault Rifle
An upgrade to the Clockwork Rifle. Crafted with a Clockwork Assault Rifle, 15 Hallow Bars and Illegal Gun Parts.

LaserShotgun.png
Laser Shotgun
A situational upgrade to the Laser Rifle. Crafted with a Laser Rifle, 12 Hallow Bars and Illegal Gun Parts.

RuptureBlade.png
Rupture Blade
An upgrade to the Breaker Blade. Crafted with Breaker Blade, 8 Hallow Bars and 20 souls of night. Bigger, stronger and with more knockback than its predecessor.

RainOfLasers.png
Rain of Lasers
Crafted with a Laser Rifle, 30 hallowed Bars, 12 Shroomite Bars and 20 Souls of Might, Fright and Sight, this laser-imbued wand will LIGHT UP THE SKY!!!
Jack.png

The Skeleton
He can arrive at your village after you defeated the Bones Horde and its final miniboss, Skulltron. He sells Bones, Jack-o-Lanterns and the Treat Bag, a food that can be consumed to give the player a decent buff to minions for 10 minutes.
The Malicious Mod adds 4 armorsets. All the armorsets have their special abilities!

FleshArmor.png
Flesh Armor
Made with the drop of the Flesh Amalgamate, the Flesh Armorset grants a good first bonus!

MosquitoArmor.png
Mosquito Armor
Made with the drop of the Mosquito Mother, the Mosquito Armorset is good for someone that likes damage bonuses.

SpelunkerArmor.PNG
Spelunker Armor
Dropped by Battron itself, this Armorset gives an optimal versatibility when there is a need to explore caves.

GranitiumArmor.png
Granitium Armor
Made with the drops of the Grand granite Worm and a Platinum/Gold Armor. Its Armorset is great to feel protected!

Distru121mask.png
Distru121's Mask
Dev Item. Because why not.

Looks like a very good mod! Sprites are awesome except some (I don't like your swords' sprites because there are shaded niot in style of terraria. (I suugest analizing shading of Thorium's sprites, because they are perfect example of how terraria sprite need to look). Also, your mod diesn't want to work. During reloading it gives error about example block and when I oress "continue" button, game crashes with error where ut can't find texture2d (I can post screenshots, if you need) and that's sad, because your mod looks promising.

Thanks for the feedback!:happy:
And also, thanks for telling me about the mod crash. It was actually an example block from Examplemod that I forgot to delete from the code that was causing the mod to not work. I released another version of the mod that should fix this bug (aviable on the ModLoader and manual download from this page).
Also, if the texture2d error keeps happening, a solution could be to delete the config.json file in the Documents/My Games/Terraria/ModLoader folder.

Tested it. I looks awesome! I especially like mosqito boss! Also, you should add Boss Checklist support. That'd be very helpful! Finally, I found another mod to put into my "I support" list!

Edit: I forgot to mention, that problem with Texture2d was fixed!

I played around with your mod and the sprites are very well-made. The flesh boss is kind of a pushover with some platforms though.(much like king slime) The mosquito mother looks pretty tough but fair. I also like the fact 2 bosses are both pre-hardmode because vanilla pre-hardmode is boring. Keep up the good work!

New update looks AWESOME! By the way, did you add Boss Checklist support? That would be very useful.
Yes, now the mod is compatible with Boss Checklist! You will be able to see all the mod bosses and the ways to summon them ;)

Great to hear that! By the way, will you add marble boss too? Or at least increase marble biome's content somehow?
I have a lot of things in mind right now for updates and planned features, so… you could expect anything from future versions of the mod ;)

This mod is quite strange
Some items/enemies have good sprites, when the bosses and small amount of items/enemies have complete trash sprites
But, on the bright side, the mod has quite good code, and it will get better and better if you wont abandon it.
I suggest creating a disord server, where some people can help with coding and spriting
