tModLoader Project Nine - Expanding Vanilla

Current Version: v0.9.0.2​

Welcome to Project Nine! This is a mostly solo mod I've been making in my slim amounts of free time the last month and a half. You've probably seen a few sprites posted here and there, and I'm pleased to announce that the mod is finally completed!

So what does the mod add?
Project Nine aims to expand the base game of Terraria by filling gaps that I see in the game. It may not have as much content as other content mods here, but that's because it's less of a new game and more of an add-on. The release version adds seven total gear sets with an eighth one planned (aka I ran out of ideas and need more time to think rip), and these sets range from a few weapons to armor and tools as well. All of these armors are based around multiclassing, similar to the Frost and Forbidden sets. My eventual goal is to introduce new biomes and custom tiers beyond the Moon Lord, but that's a long ways off for now!

So, without further ado, here's a list of the sets and how you can obtain them. I'll leave the stats as a mystery, because I find things more fun when I discover them myself!
Coralite
Coralite is an ore found buried in the sand and encrusted on the enemies of the ocean. It's quite sturdy and is useful for melee and ranged weaponry, but lacks the arcane energy needed to make magical gear.

Deadlord
The Deadlord set is made of metal scraps left behind by a cursed demon sword. There's not much you can do with it for bows and guns, but the material is excellent in blades and magical weapons. If you combine a gold or platinum broadsword with some bones and Hellstone bars, you just might be able to bring this demon to your world...

Cloudsilk
Coming soon!
Magmite
Magmite is a molten material found deep underground. While it's not quite as hot as Hellstone, it's still a very powerful material. You can use this ore to create melee and magic gear.

Astralite
While Wyverns are generally unremarkable, a few carry a treasure known as an Astralite Crystal. This crystal can be used to craft advanced guns and magical staves, and is highly valued among traders.

Now here's where we get to the fun stuff.

Glacite
Glacite is a rare material that is formed when ice fuses with metals. It's very hard and posseses strong arcane energy, making it great for swords and magic weapons.

Apoclite
Apoclite is a highly dangerous and unstable material found deep below the surface of the world. Due to it's explosive properties, it's commonly used in ranged and magical weaponry. You'll need an Apoclite anvil to craft all of the post-Plantera gear.

Galaxium
Galaxium is an incredibly rare material not found in our world. The only way to obtain it is to summon the Rift Wurm, a beast from another dimension, and bring it down. Their world is much more advanced than ours, so this material can make some very powerful melee and ranged weapons. You can craft the summon item with Apoclite Crystals and Spectre Bars.

You can tell just by looking at the sprites what sets were made earlier on lmao

Oh my god, I’m so sorry I forgot to get back to you. I’ve been taking a small break mostly due to school and all that starting back up, but I’ll add you to the GitHub the minute I get home.

Alright cool. Also make sure to push the code you have on your PC to the main one on github because the last time I checked the code was outdated.
