tModLoader Psycho!

hamstar

Steampunker



Note: Requires Mod Helpers


You are now being stalked by a deadly, souped-up psycho. That is all. Hilarity may ensue. Should liven up caving.

New v1.4: A butcher now spawns above ground. If you hear a saw buzzing, go the other way!

New v1.5: A deadly sniper now stalks you in the jungle. It's damage has been significantly increased over the usual sniper, but it may die in a few hits.


Note: You may now ward away the psycho or butcher by being near a
Star-in-a-Bottle (configurable).

As usual, a config file is available here (e.g. to adjust spawn rate): Documents/My Games/Terraria/ModLoader/Mod Configs/Psycho Config.json

Source available here. API now available.

Edit: Had to reupload Hamstar's Helpers (wrong version). I can't put these on the mod browser yet until they're a bit more tested, though.

Yep. They also heal 38~ life per second and are immune to lava, so don't think you're getting that knife easily!
I was actually thinking of dying every 10 minutes, or getting really close to beating an easy-mode boss that was difficult, and just getting stabbed in the face.

Question: What might make a good way to ward psycho spawns in a given area? Campfires? Peace candles? Statues? Banners? Grandfather clocks? High light levels?

I'd wanted to use campfires, but they're practically a dime a dozen, so why wouldn't you have them plastered all around the map, then? Tell me if this seems like the right choice.

Heart lanterns seem a pricy investment when you don't have a single HP boost and your best pickaxe is probably iron.

I can't decide on anything in-between, except maybe invisibility potions or total darkness (or also NPCs being present, as stated above). Maybe I'll just add those?

The only other solution I can think of would be something custom, like a fallen star-crafted object of some kind that repels psychos within a radius (since fallen stars are available from the start, but difficult to amass).



How about needing to be near both a campfire and a Star in a Bottle?
