    I'd love to see a cosmetics update! Another thing I'd love to see is a completion of many older furniture sets, many are missing items such as couches, cups, toilets, etc. It really drives my OCD insane to see these things go to waste. Also, I'd LOVE to see some of the unobtainable items that are currently missing from the game added back in, such as the lunatic cultist bag, the crystal furniture set, and some other miscellaneous things, maybe even some of the missing creatures!

    So the new 1.3.5 update is for decorating? Time to get my feminine side out.

    Now I wanna know what to expect in 1.3.6...

    Hopefully we do ;). But seriously, zooming in and out is ridiculously awesome, couldn't be more hyped for this. Also, being able to change the size of the GUI... MUST CONTAIN EXCITEMENT!

    I would be surprised if they redesigned the game as 4K. Remember, there's a difference between making the GUI and zoom and all that scale correctly, and actually inserting 4K textures for native 4K.

    If the game does not have 4K assets to support its 4K resolution, it's not going to be true native 4K, and what I think they're doing, is making a scaled enhancement that allows for problem-free scaling to any resolution within 16:9. If they make it work for all aspect ratios and resolutions, that'd be amazing, but that's not likely to work out once things go over a certain size unless they force-upscale a lot, which only works so far.

    This means that while your blocks won't look that much more detailed and nice in 4K, you will still be able to play in it without issues. Don't confuse it with a "4K quality game" :)

    Now for Terraria specifically, this might not be noticeable, if the game zooms out enough to make the textures occupy just as many pixels. But that's an if. I personally wouldn't wanna zoom out too much and have a tiny character.

    @Diablonar Personally, I love having a zoomed-out experience, I can see more around me, which makes the game more immersive in my opinion. Very nice change they have implemented here!

    Relax man, it will come one day. Keep in mind that consoles are inferior in terms of hard-ware to the PC, so it may take longer to port over. They may be using a different coding language as well.

    I guess this is kinda reawakening a somewhat dormant subject (well, it's been a month or two), but I like discussions and that one interests me.

    I agree that 1.1 was more important than 1.3, as the advancement of the game and the beginning of hardmode marked a HUGE change for the game as a whole; however, I say 1.2 was the biggest update, as it made hardmode more than an hour's play and added an enormous part of what we get out of it today.

    In my view, the updates are based like this:
    1.1 Added the first major step to the advancement of the game
    1.2 Made that step a lot more important than it initially was
    1.3 furthered the progress of the game, creating some epic and creative possibilities not yet possible, but long dreamed of, like fighting a boss and four separate armies all for the sake of summoning a boss that makes duke fishron look like a pig drowning in water. (lol.. really been enjoying that)

    Care to dispute? As I said, I enjoy discussions.

    Gaming in the lounge room I'm gonna love that UI scaling. You see, the game looks good in hi-res, all zoomed out but it's hard to read/see items in the inventory and whatnot. Getting my GUI twice the size while the game stays hi-res will be like making love to Daisy Ridley. Almost.
