Greetings Terrarians!

June has been an exciting month, to be sure! Alongside the steady forward march of Terraria development, we saw the Terraria Board Game crowdfunding campaign go completely nuts and we also were able to finally reveal the special vanity set designed by a huge Terraria fan, Frank, via Make-A-Wish®. Suffice to say, it was an eventful month - and July looks to be just as hot. Speaking of heat, it seems to be ridiculously hot everywhere this summer - so no better time to keep cool, stay inside, and start that next Terraria playthrough!

Now, let's dive into some refreshing Terraria news...

TERRARIA - OVER 58 MILLION STRONG... AND GROWING!

It has been quite some time since we gave an update on just how massive the Terraria fanbase has grown. This was somewhat by design, as we had our sights set on doing so once we passed a somewhat-obscure game about a plumber and his brother trying to save a princess from this dragon-turtle thing...

Thanks to the support of Terrarians everywhere, we are very proud to share that Terraria has surpassed 58 million units sold - 58.7m to be more exact, with nearly 32m from PC alone!

Once again, we are beyond humbled and thankful for your continued support - it is the force that drives us every day to make even more awesome Terraria experiences. I wonder what might happen when we get to sixty million...

MAKING A WISH COME TRUE IN TERRARIA

index.php

In case you missed it, the Re-Logic team recently had the distinct pleasure to work alongside a massive Terraria fan, Frank, as we crafted his very own Terraria vanity set! Frank is a 17-year-old teenager from Rockaway, New Jersey who is battling a critical illness. Frank declared to Make-A-Wish® New Jersey that his one true wish was to have his own Vanity Set in Terraria - and we were beyond thrilled to make that a reality!

You can check out Frank's vanity set - the Heroicis Set, complete with "Film Noir" shader - when Terraria 1.4.5 releases!

TERRARIA TESTING PLAYTHROUGHS - WHAT'S IT LIKE?

Ever wondered what those Re-Logic beta testing playthroughs are like? What sorts of bugs are found? What shenanigans take place? Well, Chippy recently put together a nice little video about his experiences as a beta tester on Terraria 1.4.5 around a year ago - a documentary for science, if you will.

Could YOU pass the Terraria Quiz?

Hello everyone!

The tModLoader team and our amazing community of contributors continues to improve tModLoader. On July 1st the monthly update release of tModLoader will go live. This month's release contains many improvements to the user experience, some gameplay bug fixes, as well as new examples and documentation for mod makers.

Modders and users should also keep an eye out for our monthly Steam announcement on the 1st where a complete listing of bug fixes and API changes for this month's release will be shown. The in-game news button on the main menu will send you directly to the announcement once it is live.

We look forward to seeing how mods make use of these new features. As always, if you are having issues of any sort, definitely don't hesitate to check out our FAQ on github or reach out to us at our Discord.

The TML Steam Workshop has over 6000 mods for you to enjoy! Coupled with the in-game mod browser, the TML Steam Workshop is a great way to explore what modded Terraria has to offer - check it out today by clicking the banner above!

WHAT'S NEXT FOR TML?

More features, continuing to evolve and grow what TML can do... and getting ready for 1.4.5.

As always, you can keep track of the current progress and much more in real time at tModLoader/tModLoader (But note that the completion percentage doesn't mean anything, because issues and PRs don't have weights.)


Developers who are willing to contribute may do so by doing PRs to the tModLoader/tModLoader branch. (See tModLoader/tModLoader)

TMODLOADER ISSUES/BUGS

The Re-Logic team does not directly develop TML, so bugs with TML are best reported via the links below.

CONSOLE & MOBILE - DR STUDIOS
sotg-console+mobile.png


The team at DR Studios remains hard at work on both Terraria 1.4.5 content as well as console and mobile specific tweaks and fixes. More details to come on all of that down the line, but suffice to say that we think that the Terraria experience will be the best that it has ever been on all platforms once 1.4.5 comes out! That said, let's dive into some spoilers shall we?

MORE CONTROL MAPPING TWEAKS

As we mentioned last month, we are undergoing a full review of all gamepad/control maps and making QOL changes that we think everyone will enjoy. Here's a taste of some changes from this past month's work on this project:

stars and controls.PNG

A buff icon was added in the top left corner, which only displays if the player has unused buff items.

right side close.png

The state display in the top right corner has been expanded on to include more things and their mappings. Health / mana potions also display here in appropriate circumstances, though whether they'll be moved up with buffs is still being discussed.

THESE AREN'T YOUR PARENTS' BOMBS ANYMORE

Bombs - not just for blasting random holes in the ground anymore!

TERRARIA MERCHANDISE UPDATES

TERRARIA - THE BOARD GAME UPDATE


TBG KS.PNG

June saw the completion of the Terraria Board Game Kickstarter - and wow, we are blown away!!!

Over 15,000 Terrarians - both old and new - pledged over two million dollars to make Terraria: The Board Game as amazing as it can possibly be. Every single stretch goal was met, the comments were amazing to read and respond to, and we cannot wait to get everything put together and in your hands!

The current expected delivery timing for Terraria: The Board Game is June 2025, but the team at Paper Fort Games will update us all as things move along. In the meantime, the Re-Logic team will continue to partner closely with PFG in order to ensure this latest Terraria experience is authentic and of the highest quality.

If you missed out on the Kickstarter, don't fret - we expect a version to hit retailers down the road as well. The gameplay will be the same, though perhaps with a bit fewer fancy doodads.

CHECK OUT THE LATEST MONTHLY T-SHIRT ON TERRARIA.SHOP!

Hot on the heels of the recent CEO battle between Redigit and Chippy, this month's Terraria T-shirt drop on Terraria.shop dives deep into the age old question that has bothered humanity since the dawn of time: how exactly does one pronounce "Terraria"? There seems to be some disagreement - and it often seems to fall along country lines...

Of course, with it being close to Independence Day, we couldn't help but poke a little fun at this long-standing Terrarian debate:

I'm guessing the hardmode ore bombs will either be crafted or sold by the Demolitionist?
Awesome work regardless, really cool to see Terraria outselling Mario!

Those icons and indicators seem helpful for new players but I really hope they’re all optional with a toggle in the settings. I’ve memorized my custom controls and don’t need that extra clutter on my screen.

looks like some sort of spiked collar and shell thing beneath it
That’s a Rainbow Boulder. It was revealed in the beta test Chippy video.

Okay, I assume that this strange accessory inside the bottle changes the shape of the cursor into a circle.
In other things, I see three new armor/vanity sets, new Star Furniture and Blocks, and new... I'm guessing they're music boxes, although the one that looks like a radio has several states.
 
Welp, 2024 is officially half over, and we STILL DON'T HAVE A RELEASE MONTH FOR 1.4.5! At this point I won't be surprised if they add a Giasfclfebhebhr or a Gegagedigegagedigo or a Weiuhqiuhajaknsjnogheu or a Fliggoogiggoo or a Gerbleebablop or an Eidalfitr or a Loogerboogerhowowiwah or a Honkadoodoo to the game! Yes I'm spouting random gibberish because I'M GOING FREAKIN' INSANE!
