Was this really unintentional? It was super nice knowing what hotbar slot was selected at a glance while in the inventory. Now the only indicator is the number being slightly brighter white and very slightly larger, and it's kind of hard to distinguish. Could the number of the selected item at least turn gold like it used to?

Yes, it was. The intentionally changed aspect was a Gamepad only problem. If you are seeing side effects on K/M, we can look into fixing whatever might be behaving differently there, but for the record . . .

I should be more clear about what was actually fixed (my bad for not being more specific).

What was happening was that if your current active hotbar item was FAVORITED, and you entered the menu, the favorited item slot would stay highlighted. If it was NOT a favorite item, it would NOT stay highlighted. This was already inconsistent to begin with, but the fact that it was staying highlighted on the favorite item was an unintentional consequence of a bug (and actually resulted in broken inventory mechanics, which is what we were fixing).

That icon over the favorited item wasn't a "feature", it was literally malfunctioning, causing inventory bugs, and inconsistently at that.

Now, as to whether or not that is something we might want to intentionally implement in some way in the future, that is another consideration.

Ah, I am on M&K. Haven't ever used gamepad. Just to make sure I'm not mixing things up, are we talking about the gold plate behind the currently selected item? That's the thing that seems to have disappeared. Was that intended for M&K as well? It used to show up for both favorited and unfavorited items while in the inventory.

1.4.4.9 is out now for Android and iOS!

Please note that you will need a new dedicated server exe if you use that (linked in the OP or at the bottom of Terraria.org).

  • Xbox and PlayStation have been approved and should be in players' hands in just a little bit (today).
  • Switch is still in review at Nintendo.
  • Amazon still in review - but good signs that it will make it this week.
  • Google Play old "Trial" version (where people bought the full game through the now-deprecated Trial version) is still in process, based on additional requirements given to us from Google - hoping to have that in early December.
  • Some regional versions (Korea/Japan/China mainly) could trail behind a bit, as we work with our regional publishers to get this out in those areas.
