    To help everyone get the most out of the possibilities opened up by the new items and features in Terraria 1.3.1, we wanted to share a few helpful resources that can help explain more about how wiring works in Terraria both in general and with the introduction of logic gates, etc.

    The first is a helpful tutorial written by Terraria PC Lead Coder @Yoraiz0r himself! This is a great introduction to what is now possible in a "how does it all work" sense. This is the place to start your learning process! Click the green text below to head there and start on your way to becoming a Terraria wiring master!



    Already familiar with the basics and want to take your Terraria wiring and mechanics game to the next level? The Terraria Mechanical Engineering Corps (T-MEC) is a Terraria community group that is all about wiring and the myriad of possibilities it opens in the world of Terraria. Want to optimize your traps and farms, streamline world travel, or break a speedrun record? The ingenuity of T-MEC can literally change the way you play the game :) The T-MEC community is the best source for getting started, brainstorming or improving ideas, and sharing your builds/achievements with others!

    This is marvelous news, although I can't seem to download the update yet. I closed my game and told my PS4 to check for updates, but it's saying that it's up to date, and I'm still running the old version. Is there any sort of delay to anticipate for the PS4?

    It might take a bit for updates to roll out to everyone, that's really beyond our control.

    Just fired up my PS4, the update hasn't propagated to NA yet it seems. Does this update include the radial hotbar that PC has?

    Yes it does! If you press either shoulder button for about a second it will pop up. Right shoulder button brings up a radial hotbar, left brings up quick heal/mana/buff buttons.

    Also, the Map menu can now be scrolled diagonally and movement is more precise.

    Wonderful. Also the NA PS4 servers seem to have the update now. Downloading now.

    I'm installed and running, everything is good so far. Only gripe I have is that scrolling through the hotbar seems to have a bit of a delay to it now, but I'm guessing that has something to do with the radial hotbar. In any case, I'll be spending the rest of my day with the new wiring mechanics.

    So loving the radial hotbar, really missed that from PC. Noticed something minor though, the hotkeys at the bottom of the screen don't know what to do if you bind to the radial hotbar instead of the cycle hotbar left/right binds from before. Minor issue, but it was the first thing that jumped out at me.

    A minor issue that I would like to bring up is that for some tools in Smart Cursor mode, when releasing the thumbstick it doesn't return to the center. It's most noticable with the Grand Design but other tools like Rod of Discord are also effected.

    It's not really a big deal, but it confuses things when trying to interact with chests/NPCs.

    "you will find beehives in the jungle"

    didn't we already have beehives? weren't those the biomes we fought the queen bee in? or is this something else entirely different?

    They mean the small beehives that grow in the jungle and release small bees. The big ones that have queen bee have been in for awhile, yes.

    So when are the fixes going to happen?

    Well, let's have a version of the current update that actually works first.

    We're in the process of coordinating any follow-up patches with additional fixes.

    OK, but you said that about the last patch in 2018 and none of those issues were addressed. Plus there's a bunch of new ones.

    Also; who came up with the UI for the Grand Design? Every time you select something, because you use R2, it vanishes onto whatever is next to it in the hotbar, and you have to scroll back to open it again. Surely the smart thing to do is to have "X" as the selection button while inside the Grand Design UI..?

    Which don't work.
