  1. The fact that all they show 2 months ago was a screenshot of a pre alpha after like 3 years says little good things about the progress until now

    Also their kinda implying you need a high mid tier phone to run terraria after the update lol what happend to optimisation? Hopefully there will be options to make it look like garbage and disable stuff if possible and have loading screens also there better be graphic settings

    Literal years *dab*

    That new world selection interface is cool!

    Are any changes coming to make start up faster? It seems to take so long now on my PC.

    1.3.6 should be 1.4. All they need to do is add a new boss, and creative mode (requiring a creative character and world to prevent cheats)

    Me and my friends have that too. I hope it is fixed as it takes up to 5 minutes.

    Wondering if character creation screen will get the same treatment...

    Good point, beside I think it is actually possible that they'll do, if they didn't already.

    Can't wait for the new stuff on console
     
  11. in order for it to become 1.4, it only needs creative mode. this will not happen in 1.3.6. Unless, of course, you you want 1.3.6 to be delayed another year or two.

    I haven't seen any official cut points for devices yet - not even internally. :) All we know for now is that even the 1.2.4 CodeGlue version already pretty much requires 1GB of RAM.... and on PC, the 1.3 update caused a substantial uptick in minimum specs. As to what that will all mean in terms of what devices can do what and how well, that all remains to be seen (not the least of which being that said optimization isn't in its final place yet, because still indev)

    Very fair point in regards to the entire process - I don't think any of us are happy with how long its been - that said, DR Studios have only been on the case since the very end of last year.... and the progress made is pretty darned outstanding, in my opinion. Makes me very hopeful and confident that the end result will be happy times for all.
     
  13. In the bottom right corner of each screenshot, there is a menu showing the "Auto Cursor" button (holding the cursor in a direction will cause you to mine that way if holding a Pickaxe), the "Direct cursor" button, and the Grappling hook. very cool!

    Those world size descriptors are absolutely lovely. It gives new players a better sense of what to expect from each world size so there's marginally less pressure to immediately choose a Large world and get overwhelmed by the amount of solo ground travel you need to make.

    The descriptions for the evil biomes are also fantastic. Especially love "macabre" being used to describe the Crimson biome.

    Only thing I would say, is that Small worlds are... sometimes too small, and that you miss out on items because you have far less spawns and perhaps something in the description should mention that it's good for quick play but not really ideal.

    But then I think that's more of a quirk with worldgen than anything; perhaps they should stuff more chests in Small worlds to make up for there being less room for some of this stuff to spawn. Like perhaps each naturally occurring chest has a 50% chance of spawning double loot.

    I am both mobile and pc terraria player... my main concern is about the mobile... i enjoyed playing in its pc version but the mobile version was left behind for a staggering 3 YEARS... why do you keep us waiting for a very long time for it to be updated?? Why not make a sequel instead?? 3 years is too long... i hope you admins and re logic get my point here... also i think you would notice this since this thread just recently updated...

    Please god tell me one of the new things in 1.3.6 is the ability to stop the title screen sun. I can't make characters without losing my goddamn mind anymore because the sun won't stop role playing as a disco strobe light

    Really excited to get my hands on the switch version someday, I just wanna play on the go again since the vita version! Also all these graphical improvements will make the game look much more dynamic and solid, really excited to see the PC update to come out as well! :D

    Does everyone think they will destroy every single bug untill no bug is left on mobile and console or is it just adding time to their work?

    And the crafting menu better not be messed up in the mobile version cause it's messed up in the console version, it's like they think we have a mouse and keyboard for mobile and console computer UI doesn't work for console and mobile.
