    Hello y'all, and welcome to my suggestion :)

    Timothy hay: [Sprite soon]

    Timothy is an item that Summons a ride-able guinea pig.
    It is obtained by farming grass with a sickle, it has a 0.1% (1/1000) chance of dropping.
    Tooltip "Summons a rideable Guinea Pig mount".


    Buff "tooltip": "Your Guinea Pig is craving Timothy Hay"

    Guinea pig Mount:

    The Guinea pig mount is similar to the Bunny mount, with a few exceptions.
    When riding the Guinea Pig, you can run a little bit slower than the Bunny mount, and jump a little higher than the normal player jump.
    The mount does not protect you from fall damage! If the Guinea pig is damaged, it will make a loud distinctive squeak.

    The mount also has a special feature. If you stand still for 5 seconds, the Guinea pig will begin eating grass, like the Reindeer Mount. Although, when it eats the grass, it gives you hay. Also, if you place hay and stand near the hay while mounted, if will eat the hay and not give you the block. While eating the grass, the Mount will make a purring sound.


    If the Guinea Pig eats 5 blocks of hay "Energy mode" will be activated and the Guinea pig will double the normal speed for 30 seconds. It will also jump twice as high! (Be careful, jump too high and you'll die!)


    Thanks for reading my suggestion, all comments are welcome. Joe_smile.png
    Also, a very big thank you to @Molos Elethros for the Mount sprites! (Not the buff sprite)

    That special feature is kinda cool.

    "Hey, why is that beast eating my hay house?"
    "Because ENERGY MODE!"

    I wouldn't say it is too OP either.
    I mean, it'll take 25 seconds to eat the grass.

    EDIT: Also, thanks :)

    Concept seems a bit unimaginative, and a tad unoriginal too, it being a mount suggestion. I mean, I like the concept itself, who doesn't like guinea pigs?, but the different aspects of the suggestion make it a little unnecessary of something to have. As well as that, it almost seems as if you didn't plan this whatsoever. For me it felt like you just put new ideas one after the after, without elaboration, and there to have some sort of function and expansion. It just didn't work out.

    Sorry, but no support.

    It may seem like I put new ideas one after another, but I didn't.
    I can't argue with your opinion though, because it's an opinion and the points are valid.

    I am glad, Joe, that you can understand. Sometimes people can't take or admit things about criticism.

    I like this a lot! The sprite would look even better if the rider lift his arms as screeming "wheeeeeeeeeee!" while in movement

    Thanks :)

    Also, I know it would look cool if he lifted his arms in the air, but non of the other mounts do that, so neither will this one.

    Why does it have to be as other mounts? Guinea pigs are special :p

    Anyway, it's your suggestion after all, good job with the turbo energy idea!

    Unfortunately, Guinea pigs don't come with seatbelts, so putting your arms in the air would be kinda dangerous.
    Anyway, Thanks :D

    If you could do that. I would see this coming:

    Warning points- 9999.
    Reason- Guinea pigs are not rollercoasters.

    You really shouldn't.
    False reporting is against forum rules.

    Anyway, can we please get back OT

    It was a joke :p

    Back on topic:

    Would the energy mode display a different buff?

    That would be cool, like the one now with a lightning bolt across the middle?

    I was thinking about that.
    I'll make one soon.

    I was thinking a battery above the head.
    Also, would the buff display a guinea pig or the guide?

    The Plastic Ball buff item is misleading. Guinea Pigs should not be put in plastic balls. It is harmful to the structure of their back. Guinea pigs require neither plastic balls nor exercise wheels.
  19. JoeReturns

    JoeReturns Terrarian

    I know it is harmful.
    But someone mentioned to me that it doesn't matter, because Queen bee drops craft a hornet staff.

    But now thinking of it, I'll go back to the "Timothy hay" idea.

    EDIT: I edited the OP
