    There is a very selective closed beta planned for mobile (because unlike with consoles, you dont need a devkit to test mobile/PC). That is what she was referring to.

    We have used a combination of in-house and volunteers for PC for years.

    As for what additional resource is in place from the 505/PW end, I would have to defer to them there.

    Can't you change the settings?

    I only ask because you seem to like the lists I make; I'm not sure if you've read the one from today (it basically re-lists everything still wrong, but with a few more items since the update), but that's the kind of help I could be giving you pre-release. Something to think about. I'd do it for free too.

    Not really feasible with consoles because of devkit requirements.

    List is very useful, I do read them and point them out to the folks that would be doing the work to review and address issues.

    Fair enough, is that why there are so many bugss? Because it's not relfective of the true game?
    Do they read them? Most of what I've written today is from ages ago.

    Since this is such a special launch, we are selecting a small amount of community members to test the beta - when we get there. :) You can see the original announcement and directions on signing up here

    Devkits =/= retail to a degree. Testing Terraria in the broader sense is not at all like testing a "normal" game - functionally infinite variables, if that makes sense.

    Your admittedly impressive edge case farms being one thing that a more mainline test play is not going to find... and even if they make a basic trap arena, they are not testing necessarily every possible permutation of things... and then there are some lines where its just hitting up against hardware issues. Not saying that is applicable to this particular setting, but just as an illustrative example.

    So, often its a function of that - other times, who even knows? A lot falls to test cases - for example, the stuff I found Friday on the XB1 build on my retail version... it was clear how/why that slipped past in the hindsight, so those test cases have been adjusted to prevent that moving forward and the hotfix was put in for XB1 friday and it was fixed in advance for PS4.

    RL itself is a small team, so we cannot look at 100% of every build across every platform. Have to rely on others to assist there, and they do. :)

    Not making excuses, this is a daunting game to test... but the endgoal has to remain getting the cleanest experience possible.

    I understand that some of the things I've mentioned are niche or rare or both, but others are pretty obvious after a few minutes of playing. I think more work needs to be done by PW with a retail version before releasing it especially with game-changers like teal plates. Also, most of the items my list is stuff from the patch that came out last year, which still haven't been fixed; were they brushed off as "low priority", or was the list not read?

    Please, let's focus on patches over content going forward. It's such a great game but has these issues that keep getting passed over.

    Agreed; there needs to be more testing of the retail version by a small group before it's released fully.

    That is not possible - you cannot "release to a retail version" until you actually release.

    Ironically, as I understand it, the "beta" function of consoles is generally reserved for paid launches and paid DLC. Providing free content updates like this falls outside of those programs.

    Won't deny that happens sometimes - as an example, I caught the crafting issues with 1.3.1 within 5m of playing on my personal XB1. Also worked with the team to revise their test cases to prevent a recurrence... and to their credit, they fixed it the same day.

    Not sure about the teal plates issues.


    I can 100% assure you that your lists have been shared and 100% assure you that your list today was read in its entirety by several people. Each item is being vetted.


    I know every update we get the same "they don't test this" - but I can assure you that they do, every single day.... and we augment it as we can as well. We are a team of 10 people, however, so our ability as subject matter experts to turn over every rock and look in every cranny is just vastly limited (and then we also have to cover Switch and Mobile... oh yeah, and also that PC game we work on :p )

    Why does that yield issues still falling between the cracks? Part of that is the unwieldy beast that is Terraria - and, as above, sometimes is a bad process. Constantly beating this drum and questioning the folks working hard on this isn't getting us anywhere. I get the sentiment, truly I do, and we push for better and better from our end as well... so things like the lists = great, useful stuff. Calling people names and the like = not constructive in the slightest. :)

    3 huge problems since the first PS4 (I have the Pro) 1.3 update that I still can't believe haven't been fixed yet:

    1) All worlds, even small ones, still load PAINFULLY slow on both my ssd & my previous sshd.

    2) The circular item placement grid is still very hard to see unless you're zoomed in. Even then, it's so translucent that it's hard to keep count. Why not have a solid block like before?

    3) The D-pad shortcuts still reset EVERY SINGLE TIME you start!

    Will these ever be addressed?

    He never behaved this way for me. Your world must have gotten a lot of lucky rolls on spawn chance for him.

    From the wiki: "Once the criteria are met, the Traveling Merchant has a 25% chance of spawning each day, appearing at a random time between 4:30 AM and 12 PM."

    I was wrong about the early time (I thought it was 6am but it's 4:30am, whoops) but he still only has a chance of spawning rather than being a guaranteed spawn. You've just been getting lucky. I can go in-game weeks without seeing him

    Yeah, i can but its still a bug. Also, theres really not many other buttons to assign it to though.
    I think the really bad issues should be fixed, minor or rare ones should be fixed if found, but i like content more.

    Just my opinion though.

  15. Your emojis... i thinks Terraria needs a leprechaun... hey where theres a leprechaun, theres a pot o gold near by. I consider this a suggestion by you unknowingly. So I actually give you credit for it since you sparked the idea. I think a leprechauns pot o gold should be worth at least 1 plat. But be a very rare npc. Yes npc. Clover, lucky charm, a green outfit with gold buckles, perhaps even selling the golddn horseshoe,( I have ran into maps that don’t have that item.) um, maybe a potato? Im, drinking now and just want to produce ideas. I have hundreds more, but im gonna leak them due to the fact that MANY PLAYERS CHEAT AND GLITCH THEIR WAY TO A WIN, slowly. Just so i can keep the Honor of Terraria being an awesome game.( I am the guy that came up with the advanced mining system in Minecraft, diff name.

    I’m definitely putting this in the wrong spot, but multiple players can’t give the angler fish. Like if one person does it everyone has to wait a day

    The Grand Design keeps cutting out, meaning you have to tap each tile individually.
