    I hope they also fix the spiderlings summoned from the spider staff. They de-agro when on a wall and don't cling on enemies very well.

    they don't want to give an estimated date for the fear of what happened with the console versions of 1.3 it gives them alot more time to work on the update.

    confused at first but you should get used to that eventually. and the wait is well worth it. it should be alot more polished than the console versions were when the update came out. expert mode hype for mobile

    im sure a lot of people gave up on this update ever coming out but when it does come out it will be well worth it. good luck on any playthrough that you do

    just think about it this way when they get the switch version out they will have a lot more time to get the mobile version running really smoothly

    if the ui looks good now and this is only a sketch it will look really good when its done

    The plan is to bring 1.3.X update to all platforms (PS4/XB1/Mobile/Switch) once they are all at 1.3-tier.

    It's not. The switch version will just be easier to make, or so pipeworks thinks, so they say it'll be finished first. I think the majority of players are more concerned about the mobile version, and I think Pipeworks should be too. I think they already are. Switch will be done first, but Mobile will get more work.
    Also, why doesn't someone just make a Unity version of Terraria?

    Since you are making a mobile 1.3 I think you really should make an effort for vita because it’s hardware more than competes with mobiles. I very much enjoy the opportunity available on vita but this is a rather large expansion on the base game, I would like to see it on vita this is just one mans plea but please consider porting it to vita.

    Not where it matters. The Vita only has 512MB of RAM, where most modern mobile devices have 1GB or more of RAM. Since Terraria operates with everything in memory at one time, this is the reason Terraria is no longer being updated for older generation console devices.

    1.3 simply doesn't fit in 512MB of RAM.

    This is great and all, really it is. But can you please prioritize making the game actually work on mobile versions(constant crashing, lost saves, etc.)

    Once its updated on mobile to 1.3, is it going to be easier/ faster to port the newer updates? By that what i mean is if by august as an example the update to 1.3 comes out, how long after that will the other updates take to catch up with the PC version? (Weeks, months...) Are they going to remake the code base once 1.4 comes out or when creative mode (if they decide to add it) is added?

    I only play mobile and I’m very excited for the new update. My only problem is the fact that I’ve been waiting for somewhat 5 months.

    Don’t forget about the vitas vram it also should be accounted for... I think it could run it considering the old mobile devices that ran it.

    It doesn’t work that way. Graphics are not the issue.

    Vita was already at the breaking point with 1.2.4....

    It was said, I dont remember when, but a while ago that the future updates after 1.3 is released will be much quicker.

    I'm pretty sure that's why it's taken so long; better to have a late, finished product that to have a broken, early product!
