tModLoader TerraGuardians - Terrarian Companions

Does this update turns Terraria into a open world raid game?
Fixed some of Brutus dialogues not having asterisks.
Guardians will no longer try to hold offhand items while cursed.
Blue has a chance of spawning as a initial guardian, when you create a new world.
Due to that, Rococo also has a chance of spawning as a recruitable guardian in the world.​
Weapons like Clockwork Assault Rifle will no longer be overclocked when used by the guardian.
Fixed the incidence of the guardian being pulled back to you, right after It was just pulled.
Minor reduction on the mod memory usage.
Guardian sprites will no longer be loaded with their base infos, will now be loaded only when the game is about to draw it.​
Guardians not drawn after a short period will now have their sprites unloaded.​
Guardians that can't move in to your world will now be shown on the end of your guardian list, and their name will be grayed.
Alex possibly will no longer make you fall in the sky anymore.
You can now have more than 1 guardian following you, but the allowance unlocks depending on the number of guardians met.
1 Extra guardians needs 3 Guardians met.​
2 Extra guardians needs 6 Guardians met.​
3 Extra guardians needs 10 Guardians met.​
The requirements may change in the future.​
Changed how the Confusion debuff afflicts your guardians when they are following you.
When following you, they will follow you on the inverse position they were following you. (Ex:. If they were behind you, they will be ahead. If ahead, behind).​
In combat, they will think that the monsters are on the oposite direction in comparission with you, eventually leading into them trying to melee the air.​
The "Use Healing Potion" command will now only be used by the guardian when the health is lower than 70%.
Each guardian following you increases the maximum monster spawn rate in 3, no matter where they are in the world.
The permission "Get Items I send to trash" now will try to give the items in the trash can to the guardians that has that permission open.
Added a new behavior: "Auto Sell when Inventory is full". Do I need to say more? The guardian will still need to allow you to send it to sell loot, and have a teleporting item on the inventory.
Be sure to backup your characters before trying the update. I tested the mod and didn't really found any character breaking bugs, but better be safe than sorry, I guess?

Now you can have multiple TerraGuardians following you, all of them will act as your assist guardians. The Main TerraGuardian still will have an important role, since some actions like taking control of them will only work with the main guardian.

Currently, the mod wont automatically place an assist guardian as the main TerraGuardian, when you dismiss the main guardian, but nothing stops you from dismissing and then calling back an assist guardian to set it as main.

Enjoy.

Edit:. I forgot to tell, there isn't really a need for Assist guardians on multiplayer, so I disabled them there. Maybe in the future... But multiplayer... I'm not sure how It is, If I were able to debug it... Though...

love having more than one guardian. I mainly play summoner so its like having a small army. i'm just wondering if it would be possible to have indicators for potions on assist guardians? it only shows for the main. Also, are there 10 guardians? would love to have 3 extra guardians running with me. If there aren't 10, then maybe the requirements can change is by locking the assist feature locked behind a friendship level of that guardian.

The mod doesn't yet have 10 guardians. Currently, you can recruit 8 Guardians, but 2 more will be coming in future updates, but before I launch them, I'll have to fix the memory usage issue.

The requirements on the number of guardians is temporary. It will be under effect until I find out an idea on how I can increase the maximum number of guardians you can have, without breaking the gameplay, or nag it. But I can try to lower the requirement to 8 guardians for now. The Idea I had at the moment for the future requirement, is having a kind of "super friendship level", which takes the friendship levels you acquired from the guardians, to increase that "super friendship level" of the player.

I also had thoughts about showing the buffs on assist guardians, but I feared that the left side of the screen would be cluttered with information If I added buffs just like to the main guardian. I'll manage to think of something to show buffs on assist guardians, beside I guess I should try making a "slim" version of their info hud.

Due to TerraGuardians gaining soon a revamp on the guardian info system, aswell as a revamp on custom guardian creation, includding the fact I just noticed that It's been 8 months since I begun making this mod, I started talking about a lot of things related to the mod project on my profile.
You can read those posts here.

As for the update changing the guardian info system, It's coming soon.

See ya!

Hey guys, here comes a very important update.
You can no longer give orders to a dismissed guardian.
Assist TerraGuardians are no longer projectile proof.
Guardians will no longer fight over who will try protecting you from harm.
Each guardian base information is now stored differently on the mod.
The way the guardian dialogues are stored on the mod, aswell as how they called were changed.
I've managed to fix some dialogues during the porting to the new system.​
Upgraded the custom guardian loading system, to adopt the new way of loading TerraGuardians base data.
The rename command will no longer allow you to change the guardian name regardless of wether you are able to or not.
Changed the description of the Rename Card, telling that It will only affect the leader guardian.
The Guide now gives you some tips related to TerraGuardians. He had enough time to get information from the Dryad, or to play with Rococo and find out.
Reduced the required number of guardians to summon assist guardians:
1 Assist = 2 or more guardians met​
2 Assists = 5 or more guardians met​
3 Assists = 8 or more guardians met​
Changed the positioning of the guardian info hud, for those who are playing with KalciphozRPG mod.
I've reached level 40 in 45 minutes while debugging this, what about you?​
Fixed a crash on Alex npc, caused by trying to load null textures.
Fixed a bug that caused the Zombie Guardian boss fight to have unintended ninja steps.

This update is very important, because I've revamped how the guardians base data works, aswell as revamped the system of loading custom mod guardians. Possibly, now It's way easier to create custom guardians, but probably I'll need more than just launching the source of the test guardian mod to show how It works.

Anyway, feel free to extract the TerraGuardians mod data to find out how you can build your custom guardian. The only thing I ask of you, though, is that you use your custom mod guardian as a pack, so every guardian you launch, put in that pack, to avoid problems related to mods and stuff.

Well, have fun, guys :D.

Edit:.
Fixed hud positioning problem when using Kalciphoz mod.
Got level 62 on it meanwhile. >:)

Uh... What?
Edit:. Nevermind, I also found that problem. While the fix doesn't comes, avoid letting assist guardians lure the boss atention and move it far away from you.

I just found the bug some time ago, but didn't really gave much important until I saw your report, and noticed that there was really something wrong.
The fix will come next update. As I said above, avoid letting assist guardians go too far away from your screen with the boss when in a boss fight.

There is another bug related to guardian naming. It is not getting the id of the guardian when you click the pencil.
To change a specific guardian name, set the id (the number next to the command name in the chat) to the one of the guardian you want to rename.
Here is the chart:
Code:
Rococo = 0,
Blue = 1,
Sardine = 2,
Zacks = 3,
Nemesis = 4,
Alex = 5,
Brutus = 6,
Bree = 7,

Almost accessories works on TerraGuardians, at least from vanilla Terraria, because modded accessories doesn't work yet.
I may have missed a few accessories though. If you find problems with a vanilla accessory, report it.

Hey guys, sorry for being late, but here are the results of February popularity contest.
There is not much else I can say to finish this, other than the fact that the update to TerraGuardians mod is coming soon.
Anyway, here is the link for March contest.

Here's the update patch note, It will take me some time to launch it though, so please be patient.
Fixed the little problem where Assist guardians couldn't keep the mobs spawns up.
Added two accessories that can be found as reward from bounty quests.
The mod will no longer give you the wrong guardian id, when trying to rename it.
Guardians will now comment when you talk to them while they use the toilet.
Fixed one of the Merchant's dialogues about Bree, refferencing Blue.
Fixed wing placement on certain guardians, when they don't have a set wing position and have their scale changed.
Guardians will now teleport with the player, when the player uses a magic mirror.
This also fixes the bug where teleporting wouldn't work when mounted on the guardian.​
Added an option which makes so npcs gain 5% more health for each assist guardian you have.
Only works on single player.​
Added some branches to not recruited guardian npcs, they will be triggered if the one they are interacting with, has already the guardian recruited.
Sadly, It doesn't recognizes if the guardian is currently summoned.​
You will no longer progress on inactive requests.
Did a few changes and fixes to Bounty Quests.
Bounty quests will no longer hang, saying that bounty quest has ended over and over, when you didn't talked to Sardine yet.​
If you have a sign, but didn't talked yet to Sardine about Bounty quests, he'll place a message telling you that he has to talk to you about it.​
Changed how the bounty monster spawning system works. Includding the fact that dungeon bounty targets will now only spawn INSIDE THE DUNGEON.​
Daedalus Stormbow somewhat is fixed.
The angle it aims at isn't, but who cares?​
Fixed a bug where Sardine could not be the one who tells you about the bounty target being killed.
You will be allowed to summon a guardian to follow you, if you don't have enough friendship level, but get a travelling quest.
The guardian will be dismissed after the quest ends, or fail.​
The mod will no longer tells the name of which step from Bree's recruitment scene is playing.
Your character will now get off the mount, when put on the ground by Alex.
Guardians that appear during your adventure, but you have already on your team, will not only acknowledge that with different dialogues, but will also turn into town npc upon either interaction, or after their dialogue with the player.
On the GuardianBase setup, can now add scripts for what will happen if the guardian gets hurt by player, npcs, guardians and projectiles (beside It only has scripts for when the guardian is hurt by npcs and projectiles right now).
Mabel arrives!
Bree gained a chair sitting animation.
Guardians can now break blocks using tools.

This update also introduces Mabel, the Deer Guardian.
If you have checked the contest result image, you'll see her presenting It, but why not let her speak, all the other guardians that came did too, right?

Mabel.png
"Mabel: *I may be late for 2019 Miss North Pole, but nothing stops me from practicing for next year.*"

She wasn't going to come out right now, because of the name of the contest she was having as goal, It used to be called "Miss Reindeer". I hastily changed to Miss North Pole, because that sounds less stupid and somewhat better. Too bad that I couldn't invent a name for that though.

She's focused into being a model, so she practices hard, even more during her day by day. The problem is that she kind of attracts too much attention.
Even though she doesn't has much maximum health compared to other guardians, she has some dodge rate bonus, and also have the chance of making attackers kind of fall in love... Also, remember that her head is a bit more above, so move up those eyes.

Anyway, she also opened up the possibility of adding a bit more of customization of codes for when the guardian is hurt, so one can program things to happen when It is hurt. That doesn't stops me from adding more overrideable methods for other interactions.

Have fun :D

Edit:. The update is live. Enjoy the changes.

Edit2 :. I forgot to tell, guardians can now break blocks by using toola, so beware when giving them a tool to use as weapon.

Heh, a hotfix has arrived!
The mod will now show the correct messages when you talk to the TerraGuardians.
Bree now has again things to say, when she tells you something during a talk request. (The fact she wasn't saying anything before the update, was also related to the bug above)
Guardians will now show confusion icon above their head, when they have confused debuff.
The player will now try facing the direction the guardian It is mounted on is facing, when not using an item.
Guardians mounted on the player will be able again to control the player movement, when they have the permission.
There are still bugs hidden in the mod, but If you guys don't find out, I will.
I mean, most likelly I'll bump into them, If I remember to take note of them during my gameplay :/.
