    Since we have broken 10,000 views of the thread, I think it's time for an announcement!

    We've decided we are going to aim for the single player beta release to be March 13th!

    Keep an eye on the thread for more information, there is always a chance that we could be delayed if we don't feel we are meeting some of our internal goals.

    Nice, I'm looking forward for it. It is nearly as exciting as Terraria 1.3 and Terraria: Otherworld.

    What happens if you add a new friendly NPC called The Viking to the Ocean Biome? Well I'd say you'd get the Frozen Ocean Biome:


    I guess the next question is, what does he do?

    As always, a big thanks to @Jestex for the our new friendly NPC sprite and Frozen Ocean Biome Background and to @oSIVo for awesome builds on our STW maps!

    Ooooh! Frozen Ocean biome eh? Does that mean there are multiple oceans in the world?

    Flippi Skeletron

    Not quite. If you recall this mod links maps together to create an "infinite" world. The only limit to this infinite world is how many maps we currently have made.

    So for example this frozen ocean biome links to another map's ocean biome. How you connect to it is via the boat of course! :)

    It's been a little bit of time since we've made an announcement, and this is because it's been a busy summer for the whole team, and of course Terraria 1.3 had to be played on expert mode. :)

    With this said we currently are on a slight dev pause (@Jestex is still pushing out sprites though, so give him an applaud) while we figure out the best way to import our STW changes into the new updates of Terraria - every time Terraria updates we need to decompile it and add our code back to it.

    With that said if you wish to play STW 1.5 you will need Terraria, and thus I have all of that packaged up for you:
    To install navigate to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\ rename your Terraria folder to TerrariaVanilla and then unzip the .rar from the link to this location and now you will have a new folder named Terraria that is Terraria with the STW mod. Please note that if Re-Logic pushes an official update through Steam it will replace your Terraria and STW and you will need to repeat this process.

    We hope to have some new content coming up for you all shortly, so stay patient and keep up the feedback! :)

    June 26th 2015

    It's been over a month since the last release and that's because we've been quite busy on making one last GREAT update to hold you all over until Terraria 1.3 comes out. There's a new quest in the release called Minecart Madness, new ore regeneration mechanics - if you haven't seen the spoiler video you can by clicking here, and we've done A LOT of remapping of Sivania to help all players navigate above and below ground without getting stuck - this will make getting mining and combat levels much more pleasant.

    Oh and to start the new quest just head on over to the mining village of Sivania and find the Demolitionist. He has had a bit a trouble with the newly implemented Minecart Junction. I'm sure a reward will help keep you on track!

    You can view the complete changelog below:

    ********************** Version 1.5a **********************
        * ~NEW~  Minecart Madness Quest has been added!
                 Head on over to the Mining Village of Sivania
                 and find the Demolitionist to start the
                 quest - he's had some trouble with the newly
                 implemented Mining Junction of Sivania.
        * ~!!!~  Sivania has had a big update to not only help
                 players navigate, but also to add more
                 atmosphere to the game - Some areas still
                 under construction and this is pointed out
                 now. Some new features include:
                 - New directional (Right and Left) signs
                   help indicate where things are.
                 - New mine shafts have been added in the
                   Eastern parts of Sivania; an Upper and
                   Lower section.
                 - Clear path the Bait Shop has been added.
                 - Areas that are underconstruction are
                   clearly marked by signs now to give you
                   a warning.
                 - Ore deposits are located within and
                   nearby the mining shafts.
        * ~NEW~  With the huge update to Sivania we have
                 introduced a new ore regeneration mechanic:
                 - Ore is statically located in the Upper and
                   Lower Eastern Mines of Sivania.
                 - When ore is mined it will turn a darker
                   color and cannot be mined for a fixed amount
                   of time.
                 - When the ore respawns it has a chance of
                   spawning a different type of ore.
                 - After ore has been mined, even if the ore
                   is still there, it has a chance of
                   changing its type.
                 - Copper-Platinum ore will now spawn in said
                   ares. NOTE: Higher tiered ore will not
                               spawn abovea certain depth.
        * New Meteor set effects have been added (these are
              Melee:  Meteor falls on player upon taking
                      damage, deals damage to enemy.
              Magic:  Chance to also cast a meteor projectile
                      on spell cast.
              Ranged: Upgrades all ranged weapons to pierce
                      enemies better (one additional pierce).
        * When a tree is completely chopped a sapling will be
          automatically planted in its place.
        * Trees no longer drop Acorns.
        * Copper-Crimtane bullets have been added - the rest
          will be coming soon.
        * The Guide correctly says the cave for Mushroom
          Picking Quest is to the West (he wrongly said to the
        * Updated the altar sprite in the Pryamid for the
          Temple of Ra Quest.
        * Updated the lectern sprite in Ra's Temple.
        * Obsidian Breastplate has been added.
        * Players no longer require a helmet to give a
          default light radius.

    I hoped, that the transition would be possible without a loading screen. But since you are not going to the next world that often, it is not that bad.

    It's not a loading screen, its a map/server change.
