Sprites Shooting Star (Alternate Meteorite)

    an alternate meteorite

    Welcome to Shooting Star, an alternate Meteorite biome. Shooting Star was kind of a side-project while I fleshed out some of my more larger biome alternates. The more I worked on it though, the more I thought "Damn. Now this has to be a thing". Shooting Star is the catalyst for the newer alternate projects coming down the lines. So if you like my alts, Shooting Star is to thank for being able to get even more of them. The theme itself is pretty simple. I designed most things with influences from Sailor Moon, Power Rangers, and G-Force: Guardians of Space. So if some things feel familiar to you, those are the things to blame.

    There's nothing here yet!

    Looks good, other than the Bookcase looking like a vending machine for multiple people to use at once. It looks wonderful. I'd love to have more alternates. Nicely done putting all this work into your ideas and making them- as a concept anyways, more real. :D

    (Edit: And I know the sprite isn't final.)

    Maybe you could also include alternate recipes using stars themselves to craft some of the bricks with meteorite?

    Edit: Just to be clear, is the Meteorite being replaced with this alternate, or is it a "sometimes" thing?

    I was thinking more Server. But if it sticks out too much like a vending machine I'll change it.

    No, I don't want to push too far from the base game's recipe. Meteorites are still the baseline by which all things are measured here.

    (Please read the Disclaimer section) Shooting Stars will replace Meteorites on a per world basis -- not replace them entirely.

    So if you have a world where a Meteorite hits -- then you will not have Shooting Stars hitting that world. And vice versa. Alternates behave just like the only alt currently in the game; The Crimson. You get The Crimson or The Corruption; never both.


    I made some fixes to the Equipment table. Should be much easier on the eyes now.

    It's too late for me to post any in depth review, but this all seems cool.

    I don't know why but I really like the look of the furniture. I'll be back tomorrow probably.

    Now I have to imagine what it would look like once it's on the surface.

    I don't get any of the references, but this seems like a very interesting idea. I like the sprites and color themes, and the furniture set would work well on a spaceship-type environment.

    I always like to c all of ur alternatives over n over again, but I always have a question in my mind everytime when I c these things.

    Did u went to hogwarts before?

    Next thing u will do is to make an alternate pirate invasion. I already had 1 idea for that.

    Turn it in to the knight invasion!
    --- Double Post Merged, Jul 27, 2016 ---
    Heck y not alternate the Martian Maddness, solar eclipse, or even

    The lunar eclipse! That would actually be cool though.

    Well done! There isn't a lot of shading on the furniture, but that gives it its own unique feel. It reminds me of Pokemon!

    +1 Support!

    Lunar eclipses in real life look like this. upload_2016-7-29_12-51-32.png

    Which is extraordinarily similar to the blood moon. As a matter of fact, that is probably what the blood moon is based off of. So a Lunar Eclipse wouldn't work.

    This is a good idea, my favorite out of all of your ideas so far.

    Just an idea, since you can now choose a new world's evil after beating the WoF, you should be able to choose whether a new world will have shooting stars of meteorites. I haven't decided what the criteria for this would be, maybe defeating the goblin army or the eater of worlds.

    Blood moons actually exist though so I don't think it's based off an eclipse.
  14. MournfulRelic

    Blood Moons in real life ARE lunar eclipses.

    That's a great idea. I honestly only think that you should change one thing: I think you should change it from "Star Metal" to "Stellatite" or something similar.

    No; Star Metal was specifically chosen because it is a type of known fantasy metal akin to Mythril, but more uncommonly used.

    Star Metal doesn't get a lot of coverage. So I gave it prime placement for this fitting biome alt.
