We would like to remind Terraria console users that editing the core files of their game is strictly forbidden, as is modifying core game content and distributing saved games.

Altering game files and distributing game saves not only voids your right to technical support from us but is moreover prohibited by both Sony and Microsoft and could result in direct punishment. Anyone altering their game does it at their own risk and risks having their game not be compatible with future updates and/or content.

The distribution of save/hacked files is strictly prohibited on the Terraria forums. These files are from unknown origins, are untested, and not only risk your ability to play and enjoy the game, but could potentially create a security risk to your personal data stored on your device. Anyone distributing these types of files will be warned and the files will be removed. Repeat offenders are subject to disciplinary action at the discretion of the community moderators.

We hope you continue to enjoy playing the console versions of Terraria as originally envisaged by Re-Logic and reengineered for the console platforms by 505, and we look forward to bringing you more great content as soon as we’re able.

It has come to our attention that some mobile Terraria users have been actively editing the core files of their game to access unreleased and unfinished content, modify core game content, and distribute saved games that contain such altered files.

Accessing and altering game files voids your right to technical support from us. Anyone altering their game does it at their own risk and risks having their game not be compatible with future updates and/or content.

The distribution of save/hacked files is strictly prohibited on the Terraria forums. These files are from unknown origins, are untested, and not only risk your ability to play and enjoy the game, but could potentially create a security risk to your personal data stored on your device. Anyone distributing these types of files will be warned and the files will be removed. Repeat offenders are subject to disciplinary action at the discretion of the community moderators.

Effective upon Mobile 1.3 release, August 27, 2019

This applies to the 1.3 (PC equivalent) update to the mobile Terraria app (Android version 1.3.0.7.1 and beyond, iOS version 1.3.0.7.1 and beyond, Amazon version (t.b.d.) and beyond).
For versions of the mobile app that do not get updated for any reason, the previous policies are still applicable in full.

Beginning with the 1.3 Mobile Terraria update from DR Studios, data files from the Terraria app (worlds, players) will be fully accessible to users via standard mobile file explorer apps. A primary reason for this is to allow users to make backups of their worlds and characters to connected PCs or cloud services as a cautionary measure against data corruption and loss. [Examples and instructions for backing up your data is covered here. link] This also leads to the possibility of sharing world and character files between members (i.e., to share interesting builds, to share adventure maps, etc.) What follows is the updated policy of what we will and will not permit to be posted/uploaded to Terraria Community Forums (TCF).

What is permitted:

You may share unaltered copies of world (.wld) and player (.plr) files in forum posts. By "unaltered", we mean files that have not been created or changed in any way outside of the official released mobile Terraria app obtained from official app stores.

Links to sites that host such files from multiple sources are discouraged, where we cannot account for the sources or content. Such links may be removed by forum staff at their discretion.

Disclaimer: Using world and player files shared by others is completely at your own risk. Re-Logic/505Games/DR Studios cannot be responsible for issues or possible damage to your device resulting from using shared files.
What is NOT permitted:
  • You may NOT share any world or player files that have been otherwise altered in any way. This includes files that have been altered by inventory editors, map editors, hex editors, hacked/cracked versions of Terraria, or any external/3rd party programs.
  • You may NOT share or link to any program/app that is designed to alter world or player files, or to otherwise "mod" the mobile version in any way. This includes (but is not limited to): inventory editors, map editors, mods/cheat engines, and so-called 'trainers'. There may come a time in the future that some vetted and approved methods for doing these things are available, but for now there are none.
  • You may NOT share or link to any unofficial, cracked, or otherwise modified versions of the Mobile Terraria app, or any resource file required for the app. This includes texture packs and wavebanks, for the time being.
  • You may NOT describe how to modify your mobile app or data files, or link to such descriptions hosted elsewhere. Also, do NOT post/link images that depict mobile modifications including (but not limited to): "super stacks" of items, "exclusive" items from previous versions of the mobile version that were not converted/replaced by updating, items/features from future planned updates, items from modded versions of the game.
  • Above all, you may NOT upload or link to any 'alternate' versions of the Mobile Terraria game to the forum (APK's, IPA's, etc.). Doing so is in violation of our policies regarding piracy, and doing so may result in the termination of your forum privileges. This includes any pre-1.3 version of the app.
