Terraria State of the Game - March 2024

Roller skates look sick.

There's one feature I miss; being able to link equipment slots freely when switching loadouts.
So, switching from loadout 1 to loadout 2, lets me have it defined to reuse the armor from loadout 1, so I can swap between damage and healing variant of spectre armor, and don't have to literally duplicate all my accessories when doing so. But, when using Loadout 3 (fishing) I would wanna use the angler helmet anyway.

For example, if I'm on Loadout 2, I can select any slot and make it "Inherit from Loadout 1", "Inherit from Loadout 3" or "Native"/"Independent". Maybe do it via a lock icon above the right-hand side and right-click.
I got a suggestion related to this on my signature
 
An update cannot be delayed if we haven’t given a date. :p

We haven’t even reached a point internally where we were like “this is the date” and then delayed it.

It’s not as haphazard as people are assuming. :)

We won’t be splitting the update, barring something insane happening - I feel like we have a pretty good track record with knowing what needs to go in and when.

There is a general sense of where we are going with things here - just not necessarily all of the details on some things yet. If that makes sense.

To be fair, it's hard to go "this is the date" when you guys keep going "new idea, let's put it in" XD
Keep up the good work, take your time on the update!
 
I want a subterranean biome for the desert to have more content in it , we could have a dinosaur or something to add more to the world
 
I don't know if you read these reply but I recently watched a modded terraria video where they removed all I frames and I thought it was fantastically chaotic and would make for a amazing seed and would be a very fun challenge for long time players.
 
Hello, ChrisChill, how are you feeling?
How is your life going?
What is for you the most awaited addition?
I'm doing good, thanks for asking. I'd say that out of all 1.4.5 my favorite addition will be the new music tracks. Music can drastically change how a boss battle or event feels to fight. (plus Terraria music is a jam)
 

Greetings Terrarians!

Another month has flown by - seriously, 2024 feels like it is moving along at warp speed. The development teams have continued to make great progress on Terraria 1.4.5, and we are back this month with some fresh spoilers that we hope everyone will enjoy. The team has recently been diving into some multiplayer testing that has triggered a few ideas within the team that we are planning to explore in the near future. Beyond that, we are seeing lots of good progress on the Board Game and Graphic Novel fronts. Really feels like as the weather is starting to heat up, so are all of the things in the world of Terraria. We may even have a little special something to share with everyone next week.

All that said and without further ado... let's get to it!

TERRARIA 1.4.5 - SKATING IN TO REPORT ON A BANNER MONTH

We do hope everyone enjoyed last month's trip down Terraria 1.4.5's memory lane. Don't worry, we have some fresh spoilers for you this time. That said, we remain hard at work each day adding/tweaking/fixing new stuff, and are making great progress. At this point, the team is putting out at least one new build per week! We still do not have a final sense for when 1.4.5 will arrive (nor what all might still be added!) - as always, the timing will be "when it's ready".

New Menu for Banners - Earned banners can now be claimed instead of dropping in the world and filling up inventory while exploring. This is something the community has requested many times over the years, and we are glad to report that it's coming in 1.4.5!

Hello everyone!

The tModLoader team and our amazing community of contributors continues to improve tModLoader. On April 1st the monthly update release of tModLoader will go live. This month's release contains fixes to long-standing issues as well as the release of the new mod syncing system previewed last month.

This month we've fixed several issues, the most impactful being the issue with corrupted config.json files preventing the game from loading for some users. The mod loading and syncing logic has been reworked in this month's release. Users will see a new menu when joining a multiplayer server if mods need to be reloaded, explaining which mods will be downloaded, enabled, or disabled. Finally, mod loading speed has been improved by roughly 10%. We expect to see faster mod loading times and more consistent syncing of mods in multiplayer.

Mod makers can look forward to native sand support, active entity iterators, improved Asset documentation, and much more.

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 listed. The in-game news button on the main menu will direct you 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 team has been hard at work keeping up with the relentless pace of new development versions coming from the PC side of the house while we continue to explore and test Crossplay scenarios in parallel. So far, so good on all fronts - but, of course, we still cannot make any promises on that whole Crossplay thing. We are very pleased to be back this month with a brand new spoiler...

TERRARIA - THE BOARD GAME DESIGNER DIARY

View attachment 464024
Here we are again with the latest "Designer Diary" entry from the lead designer for Terraria: the Board Game - Chris Kingsnorth. Let's see what he and the Paper Fort team have been up to over the last month!

---

View attachment 464273

Hello Terrarians!

Chris here, game developer at Paper Fort Games; I’m back with another Terraria: The Board Game designer diary. This month I’m sharing more biome tile art, and we're giving you a chance to choose which critters you want to see in the tabletop game!

If you don’t want to read the diary, but still want to sign up for launch info, just visit Get Ready for ⛏ Terraria: The Board Game! (we’re almost at 21,000 Terrarians!)

Snow, Desert and Corruption Biome Art
As you explore the world in Terraria: The Board Game, you’ll reveal tiles representing layers and biomes. We previously showed tile art for the surface Forest and Underworld tiles, and we’ve recently received the artwork for 2 more surface biomes; Snow and Corruption! This is background artwork, so other big details like minable blocks and tunnel details will be added next.


Below is the progression from pixel art prototype to painted artwork!


Jungle, Desert, Ocean and Crimson biomes are also nearly ready. We already love how these tiles look, but we’ll be adding lots of smaller painted details too. There will be lots of details to discover as you reveal your world, and something we’ll be adding for sure are Critters! That’s where we’d love your help…

What are your Favourite Critters?
Bunnies? Penguins? Scorpions? Seagulls? We want to include fan favourite critters in our biome tile artwork, so please let us know your suggestions in the comments! We’ll be including as many as we can, so don’t miss out on the chance to have your top critter included on a tile!


Don’t Miss Out!
If you haven’t already, sign up at Get Ready for ⛏ Terraria: The Board Game! and be sure to click through to the Kickstarter ‘notify me’ page. We’d be very grateful if you could share the link with fellow Terrarians via social media; you’re always welcome to tag us in using @paperfortgames.

You can also follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Until next time!

Chris
