Working as Designed Obsidian shield now prevents capes from showing


Steam or GOG
Single Player/Multiplayer
Operating System
Windows 7
Terraria Version
Controls Used
On v1.4.2. Repro: with a nude character (no equipment, no vanity, no dye) equip an Obsidian Shield (mine is a "Wild" if prefix matters) then equip a cape (for example a Winter Cape) in a vanity slot. Winter cape is not showing (it was previously). Removing the obsidian shield or clicking its eye to hide it allows the cape to show again. Did not notice that with any other equipment (but I did not have any other item considered as a "shield").

Keep up the good work and good luck with the rain of issues much more difficult to address than mine ^^ <3!

This is intentional, capes conflicted with shields so shields now prevent capes from being drawn.
