Hello, I am attempting to create my own UI. How you go about this seems to be different, but I cannot get it to work.

Expected: A UIPanel to be drawn across the screen
What I got: Absolutely Nothing.

Code:
TestMod.cs
Code:
using TestMod.UI;

namespace TestMod
{
	public class TestMod: Mod
    {
        internal static TestModmod;
        public UserInterface TestInterface;
        public TestUI TestUI;

        public TestMod()
		{
			Properties = new ModProperties()
			{
				Autoload = true,
				AutoloadGores = true,
				AutoloadSounds = true
			};
        }

        public override void Load()
        {
            mod = this;
            if (!Main.dedServ)
            {
                TestUI = new TestUI();
				TestUI.Activate();
				TestInterface = new UserInterface();
				TestInterface.SetState(TestUI);
			}
		}

        public override void ModifyInterfaceLayers(List<GameInterfaceLayer> layers)
		{
			int MouseTextIndex = layers.FindIndex(layer => layer.Name.Equals("Vanilla: Mouse Text"));
			if (MouseTextIndex != -1)
			{
				layers.Insert(MouseTextIndex, new LegacyGameInterfaceLayer(
					"Test UI",
					delegate
					{

							TestUI.Draw(Main.spriteBatch);
						}
						return true;
					},

I've gone through my code and cross-referenced it with example mods and stuff. I have rigorously examined every single character and cant find a single difference other than the name and stats of the weapon.

Heres an example of one of the simpler items, the Shroomite Thunderbow;


namespace Thunderbolt.Items
{
public class ShroomiteThunderbow : ModItem
{
public override void SetDefaults()
{
item.name = "Shroomite Thunderbow";
item.damage = 72;
item.ranged = true;
item.width = 24;
item.height = 55;
item.toolTip = "Shroomite Thunderbows shoot with deadly force";
item.useTime = 21;
item.useAnimation = 21;
item.useStyle = 5;
item.noMelee = true;
item.knockBack = 3;
item.value = 10000;
item.rare = 8;
item.shoot = 10;
item.shootSpeed = 28;
item.useAmmo = AmmoID.Arrow;
item.UseSound = SoundID.Item1;
item.autoReuse = false;
}

public override void AddRecipes()
{
ModRecipe recipe = new ModRecipe(mod);
recipe.AddIngredient(2,10);
recipe.SetResult(this);
recipe.AddRecipe();
}
}
}

Any help would be greatly appreciated
(Sorry I cant figure out how to put the code into its own box like some other people do. How do you do that btw?)

Expected: A UIPanel to be drawn across the screen
What I got: Absolutely Nothing.
So I found out that I didn't append the UIPanel to the base, but when I do that when I load into the game ALL of the UI is gone and I get a rapid 'click' sound, as if my mouse were repeatedly hovering over and then away from a button

You put this outside of the class, put it in the class

public override void Load()

Config.Load();
}

You put this outside of the class, put it in the class
Which one? The Mod class or the ModPlayer class?

EDIT: Tried ModPlayer and it couldn't find a valid thing to override so I tried Mod and it worked.

I am having an issue with the vanilla tmodLoader, no mods enabled. I start a new server and if I build torches then throw them they appear where my character was a few seconds ago and when I go to pick them up they duplicate the number of torches in my inventory.

Any ideas? This is with a fresh install and a fresh tmodLoader without any mods.

I'm just starting using this tool. I'm making the first sword. I cannot seem to change the size of the weapon in-game? (With item.width and item.height.)
All my other changes are loading fine. Thanks.
item.width and item.height only increase size of the weapon when in inventory. For your item to be bigger, you need to increase size of the sprite.

Alright I'm having an issue I haven't had before with tmodloader. Apparently with the mods I have enabled my game is using 2.5gbs of ram. While that's not all that I have, 8 is what I have total, it's quite a bit for little ole Terraria. Now it is tModloader and I have like 8 mods enabled so some could be unoptimized, but I have played with all of these mods before and never had this issue. I'm using 0.10.0.2

I'm in the middle of a play through on my youtube channel and want to continue it, but I've been having to wait for some updates for the mods to continue playing without disabling any. It's annoying because I've waited over two months now.

EDIT:. I just noticed if I reload any mods, by disabling and re-enabling them my game uses more and more memory. I'm currently at 3 now, and my game just crashed, lol.

Actually this is incorrect, changing the width and height of an item changes the "hitbox" of the item, meaning it is possible for an item to go beyond the sprite's actual size. I'm not really sure if "item.scale" would affect the size of an item when in use, however it does change the size of the item when in world, not in inventory.

item.scale is the multiplier for the item's size which is 1f by default.
So: actualSize = item.Size * item.Scale
And indeed, you're right, the item's sprite size does not have to define the in-game size of the item.

Handy note: you can actually just set item.Size in SetDefaults() instead of setting width and height manually.

So you're using 8 mods, and the game is using 2.5 GB RAM? That's okay honestly.
