Muh 'Shrooms!.png
Hello, friends, this is probably my biggest suggestion yet. Mud, Shroomite, Fungibulbs. It all just comes together. If more things than ores and evil biomes should get alts, then not doing this [or something like it] would just be a wasted oppurtunity. So now, let's get down to business!

Ancient Times
i get an idea and make a FEW sprites, nothing compared to what we got now. [in both quantity and quality]
Sprites and concepts are made.
LOW NOON Of 27/11/16
this thread is released.
Later In The Day
faerie stuff, then this changelog and the poll.
Sporechest loot and half of a format-overhaul.
Lownoon of 04/12/16
More rehaul.


So today, we see the mushrooms being made into an alternate to the jungle biome. Now the Jungle is huge, so so shall this suggestion. you're lucky i've already got a head start. I have probably missed a few things. Please inform me if that is so, and i hope you enjoy!


When generating your world, and the mushrooms are on the surface, the jungle will be in these caves underground. If there are 3 or more jungles, than you still only get 2 and you've ought to make another world and hope it has the one you want and bring the other-biome seeds into your world. This also is how it works for the underground 1.3 enemies if you were wondering why you don't hear any dying crawdaddys when falling down the hellevator.

The mushrooms are a land where fungi grows unhaltered to massive sizes. Heavy sporage blocks out most of the sunlight, but the mushrooms have developed bioluminescence, preventing total darkness. All sorts of creatures morel-or-less `:naughty:[u see what i did there] semi-controlled by the things thrive and many creatures found nowhere else live in these parts. This land, however, is just as spectacular, if not more, underground than above it. It is not uncommon to stumble into caverns surrounded by light, with levels of biodiversity similar to rainforests, and guarded secrets lay deep within the earth. Some similar species grow in small caverns around the world, but they are like mere sprinkles compared to the cake that is this biome.

The shape of the biome will be similar to the jungle, but looking somewhat more like the underground mushroom minibiome that has existed since the dawn of time.

Spruced up the decorative fungi.
Mushroom_grass - Copy.png
Mushroom_grass - Copy (2).png

-The QB/BFG has been defeated.
Now, on to the shop's contents.
Both of these dudes sell the following items.

So, you finally defeat the Wall. The spirits of Light and Darkness/Chaos are released. Guidey changes his name again and respawns, ready to tell you how many crystal shards you need. And the entire world changes.

About Evil Biomes, either we Save the Jungle, or we shall let our mushrooms suffer.

Life Shroom
Mushroom_grass - Copy (4).png

You remember a chest in the dungeon that looks like it may be unlocked by this, so you go there.
Mushroom Chest

-Looks cool.
Inside is some classic chest loot, and this.

Shroom Boomer

-100[explosion]/56[sporeclouds] ranged damage.
-Fires rockets.
-Rockets explode into damaging sporeclouds that last for a few seconds.

But this isn't the shroomite you know. See, it's changed.
Let's see what kind of stuff we can make with this!

What has became of the other shroomite booty?
It's Harmonite now.
Crafted with 1 Chlorophyte/Shroomite Bar and 8 [Jungle] Spores at the autohammer. Can make bricks too.


All the shroomite you know of today has been turned green.



It does the same as what it did when it was blue.

Unspecific stuff but still crafted with shroomite.

So you defeated all the mech bosses and likened them to a pile of hallowed scrapmetal which you made into a nice pickaxe/drill and make some cool shroomite armour, and have seen a pink Faerie Ring.
Mushroom_grass - Copy (3).png

-Don't break unless you're in for a challenge.

You break it to see what happens.

She is angry now.

Fungus Among us has awoken!

shroom mama.png

Not much is known about her, except that she is the eternal guardian of these mushrooms, probably the one that allowed them to grow this much in the first place, and that she prefers to be known as the Fungus Among Us.
[the stats? ahahahahahaha. boss-stats are for devs!]
Dangerous, spore-emitting mushrooms grow on the mushroom grass. the spores damage you, so it is good to stay airborne or stand on something that isn't mushroom grass. you gotta hit them to get her health down. [she is immune to spiky balls]

As she gets to half health, she enters her second phase.

At half health, the mushrooms become spiky and deal much morel [`:naughty:] contact damage, and she will start to cast spells at you.
Once defeated, the mushroom closest to the player drops loot.

you can use 4 dust and 12 shoomite/8 dust 24 shroomite/6 dust 18 shroomite to craft the faerie armour.

tiki thing.png

IF YOU CAN TELL ME "This level of whimsicality does not remind me of those mushrooms." THEN YOU EITHER SIT ON A THRONE OF LIES, or YOU HAVEN'T PLAYED [ENOUGH] TERRARIA AND HAVE 10 SECONDS TO GET THE :redmunch: OUTTA HERE.

Anyways, back to the point.
Glowworm caves are made of limestone blocks, which look something like this.

Don't ask why it's moss.
They are of a similar shape to granite caves, and are slightly smaller.
Glowworms of all sorts have an increased spawnrate in here.

Honey inflicts slowness instead of regen and is cyan in a mushroom world. You can change the effects and colours with water fountains, so the mushroom-worlders can get access to that sweet, sweet regen. And to not waste the fabled 4th liquid.

Limestone Bricks

-Can be placed.

Limestone Furniture
Limestone_Block_(placed) - Copy.png

-All placeable.
-Includes a torch, campfire [there should be a campfire for every torch, barrel, vase [crafted at pottery wheel.], trapdoor, as well as all the normal furniture set stuff.

Now i don't know what you've ought to smash, but you've ought to smash something to summon the boss.

The Big Friggin' Gnat [or BFG] has awoken!
bally - Copy (2).png

-Boss stats are for devs.
-Will ram you, ram you harder, and ram you again.
-Doubles spawnrate for all glowworms.


Bottled Honey

-Another Filthy Reskin[tm] by me.

More stuff i havent made yet.
Continued on second post.

-Spawns in worlds with an underground [not surface] jungle.

Just some random stuff.

All the important colours.



This Thread's Badge.


Mushroom armour is ranged because of what shroomite was once.
I chose goldweavers for the alt- venomstaff because of a time when mushrooms were just another place you could visit underground and were associated with the ores like the rest of the underground.

Well, i guess that's all for this entry. Maybe check out my other suggestions or do something useful. Bye!

Happy one week anniversary to this thread!
Hello @Aquagel8last320

It is fine to want to celebrate your Thread's one week anniversary. However, when posting on Threads, it is expected you have relevant content to add to it. Which your previous posts have which makes it permissible to make multiple posts in a row. I'm guessing your Temple Alt Post is a place holder as well which is why that is fine.

However, the practice of making a post with little content other than to advertise it and move it to the top of a suggestion page is known as "bumping" which we do not allow. Please be sure to keep this in mind, and ensure you have a reasonable amount of content before posting like this in the future.


Dungeon Spirit
I did add new content, but it was after you said that, and would've edited that post later.
Anyways, i have added the alternate for jungle shrine ;loot and am working on remaining fish.

It's because this thread was a terrible idea and waste of time wasnt it.
It's alright. Most of your sprites are pretty good. The main problem with this thread is that it's poorly worded and poorly formatted, which makes it undesirable to read and comment on.
Ok, this thread has been entirely 100 percent remodeled from the ground up, and is now like 200percent easier to read. [idk maybe there are too many sections.]


Badge_Smol.png [image]
-What this is.
-Useful notes and info.

Other things
-Spoilers and not having it all open.
-Spans just 2 posts.
-Easier to read.
-Bad pun indicator. [`:naughty:]
-Mandatory flavour text.
-Somewhat more serious.
-Other things.

Let the fun begin! [?]


Eye of Cthulhu
This is awesome! I definitely support and think this should be in the game! Also good to see some New Zealand stuff ( Giant Titiwai


Official Terrarian
It's no a bad concept, and I like the way you handled most of the overlap created. It's certainly a good start, considering jungles probably the most developed biome there is.

Also, idea for the smashable for BFG, a giant cocoon-like thing hanging from the ceiling.


There should be an item to replace the Pulse Bow in the TM's wares.
The BFG should also get random drops like Queen Bee. It could drop some sort of mushroom-themed gun as the magic weapon (Preferably one that acts like the BFG does in Doom, but adapted), the melee weapon should be a Spear, and the ranged weapon could be either an early Repeater (Apart from the HM ores and the Stake Launcher, there's no repeaters) or a gun that fires Grenades. Beenades could be replaced by a Shuriken or Javelin-related weapon.

The Alt-Duke could be a hostile crustacean of massive proportions that has an unprotected area that has to be attacked for a high damage bonus, but has very high defense anywhere else.
