Just a question, all you who develop/update Terarria. I'd love to see this (or at least a 'creative mode' of sorts) in the future!

It's doubtful @Tichnarr. Modding and texture packs for console and mobile is not something that is currently supported.

You can read more about 505 Games' viewpoint regarding editing the core files and modifying the core game content here: Official 505Games Policy Regarding Console/Mobile Hacking

Given that policy I don't see modding coming to console any time soon.

Just what 505 Games said, they don't allow console mods, I don't think mod support will ever come to consoles as it will allow players to cheese achievements/trophies.

If not mod support, perhaps a mode where you can bring up a menu for all the items in the game? But disable trophies for any world items from the menu/crafted using items from the menu/etc.

Maybe that if not modding?

Well, it could be done in a manner that doesn't allow trophies to be earned whilst playing.

Skyrim does this if I recall.

Anyway, not likely to happen as mentioned above.

Not sure @aamir kashmiri. There aren't many games that have mods available on console and it's not easy. Not even PC Terraria has official mod support so it could be awhile for console mod support if it ever comes.

How about for consoles instead of mod support add DLC's for Thorium and/or Calamity. It wouldnt take years to develop considering all textures and coding are already created.
 
You're better off with getting the PC version if you want mods. Game companies are powerfully against modding of any kind hardware or software.

They should.... I mean it would be fair for the console players.... All they would have to do is copy the coding and textures into the DLC database.
