    It looks like there aren't configurations for either the Compass or Depth Meter, could you add those, too?

    Sorry for the late response, I had a busy week. I thought I already add those to the configuraiton, woops. I updated just now and added them.

    The new configuration file is "Reduced Grinding v4.31".

    I updated my mod to 4.32, these are the changes:
    • Sky Crates now have a 25% chance of dropping Sky Mill.
    • Made an Angler_Potion.png Angler Potion: Causes the angler to have a new quest for you right away.
    • Reduced war potion cost from 7 to 5 powders (which is 1 mushroom).
    Configuration file renamed to Reduced Grinding v4.32.json to regenerate it with the updated configurations.

    Geez, you have to kill and respawn him about 10 times, that is annoying. I updated my mod to 4.34, these are the changes:
    • Added configuration chances for NPC drops (with default configuration, that chance of dropping an extra is 100% minus the chance of the vanilla drop, (so it will drop almost every time)). The Guide's drop will happen no matter what name he has.

    Suggestions:
    • Add recipies to melt down bars into ingots with a loss of 1 ore. Could be at a new crafting station, late pre-hardmode to mid hardmode.
    • A config to reduce the cooldown on the Celestial Sigil (default 30 seconds, maybe?)
    • Remove restricions on Rainbow Slime block spawns as well as up their spawn rate. I love dem Rainbow Bricks! Alternatively, add a crafting recipie (Sky Mill, 5 of all types of pre-moon lord bricks makes 50/100 rainbow bricks)
    • Up truffle worm spawn rates //increase fleeing delay
    • Up Clothier Voodoo Doll drop rate (If already done, I haven't noticed as I don't regularly go dungeon raiding. Am planning to once I beat Plantera, however.)
    • Up drops/Add a recipie for the Power Cell. (Once again, I have no idea if this has been implemented as I suck at terraria and fail at plantera constantly.)
    • New statues for all of the critters with gold forms. Have them spawn non-catchable gold variants. Recipe could be 5 gold variants + original statue
    • Add recipies for world-based crafting stations (Extractinator, Themed Furniture Crafters, etc.)
    • Add a Lunatic Cultist summon that doesnt summon the Lunar Pillars. Useful for masks, trophies and modded drops.
    • Etherian Mana Vault. Stores Etherian Mana, can only be opened during the Old One's Army Event. Sold by Tavernkeep for 25 Defender Medals after tier 2 has been completed.
    • Blank Trophy. Equipable. Records the next boss kill onto the trophy. Unequips upon recording. Crafted at the Ancient Manipulator from Item Frame and 3 of each fragment. Expert.
    • Anamorphic Mask. Equipable. Same as Blank Trophy, but with 200 Gel instead of an item frame. Expert.
    • Treasure Bag Awakener. Guarentees a lootbag drop for every player online that stayed within a vicinity of the boss for at least 60 seconds. Crafted at Ancient Manipulator from 200 Luminite Bars, 50 of each fragment, and a Moon Lord treasure bag. Expert. This is a WORLD UPGRADE, like the Demon Trophy from Calamity.
    • Soulless Banner. Crafted at loom from 4 monster banners. Expert. Two uses: 1. Increase in nearby mob spawns (Stacks with Water Candle, Battle Potion, etc). 2. When a non-boss entity is killed with the Soul Stealer Blade and the Blade right clicks the Banner, the monster's soul is transferred into the banner, turing it into a banner of the monster killed.
    • Soul Stealer Blade. Crafted using a Magic Mirror/Ice Mirror, 30 Gold/Platinum Bars, and one of the Dungeon's banners. When a monster is killed with this low-damage weapon, its soul becomes trapped in the mirror on the crossguard. However, only one soul can be kept at a time. When you kill a monster with a soul still inside, the original soul is destroyed to make room for the new one.

    I understand that most likely, none of the items towards the end will make it in, but I had fun coming up with semi-balanced ideas for reduced grinding. I will be on this thread periodically giving new ideas and voting on polls. Hopefully I can help improve this mod even further with my ideS.

    These are all interesting ideas. I think my favorite is the Truffle Worm, I always found it a real pain to find them. I'm going to look into these and see what I can do.

    I like the gold statue idea, but if used to spawn the critters could be a little overpowering. Maybe make it a low spawn chance like with the snail statue.

    The critters would be not catchable, like the normal bunny statue.
