Title
Version 3.1
Please give feedback!
Hello! It's Ih8creeperz, and I am here to discuss a new "The Orchard" biome as an alt. to the Hallow.
There is a biome chest, obviously.
The music will be like this:
(Suggested by @TheNerdiestNerd )
"The spirits of harvest and flesh have blessed your world."
Let's go!

The Biome
The Orchard: A biome made of fruit grass and trees, the Hallow's starting width, biome is generated once in Hardmode. (Biome will spread.)
Background on surface for biome should be fruit-like trees. Happy music will play, though I don't know what.
This is an alt. to the Hallow on Crimson worlds.
The water will be clear light-blue, like looking at a pool from above.
Underground Orchard: Made up of Limestone blocks, Raspberry Shards, and enemies drop Soul of Delight.

Closing
The reason I put dashes in between every subject is that it keeps it organized.
Also you can craft Fruity Furniture, torches, and walls.
(Texture for Fruit Wood and Fruit Furniture is Pearlwood tinted lime-green)
I have spent approximately 5 1/2 hours on this thread.
That's all I have to say, please put your thoughts in the Poll!
Also, I am a HORRIBLE spriter, would some people please make some sprites for the thread? You don't have to, but in the credits I would feature you.

I'm sorry, but why do we need this? it seems rather pointless to have... i'm guessing a biome alt, like this?

Underground Orange: Made up of orange-tinted Pearlstone blocks, Orange Shards, and Enemies drop Soul of Tastiness in Pre-Hardmode AND Hardmode.
An alternate hallow, available in PHM. Not original, not fun.

Crafting Items Pre-Hardmode:
Orange Armor
Orange Wood Helmet: 40 Wood, 2 defense,
Orange Wood Breastplate: 60 Wood, 3 defense,
Orange Wood Leggings: 50 Wood, 1 defense.
Setbonus: +1 defense (7 defense in total)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Crafting Items Hardmode:
Orange Crystals:
(Saving this spot for a sprite)
Same stats as Crystal Storm, except that the book is colored orange, a lighter tint in the middle. Also orange crystals shoot out, hence the name!
15 Souls of Tastiness + 30 Orange Shards + Spell Tome = Orange Crystals (at a bookcase)
So we get the souls and shards in PHM, but they are only used in HM?

I could say more about why I dislike this, but I think that alone was enough to show lack of thought in making this suggestion.

I don't think anybody here is completely throwing your idea down the drain, I'm pretty sure we all just want to know your reasoning behind this besides "oranges are good, i thought of it, whatever," and that includes me, because honestly, oranges are a pretty random thing to base a biome around.
Also, I know it's supposed to be a minibiome because of the size you stated, and 1.3 is adding minibiomes, so instead of trying to make it like a normal biome with armor and all, maybe just give it some weapons and sprites and... yeah.

Alright then... Ugh, wasted about 2 hours on this then.
[DOUBLEPOST=1419971917][/DOUBLEPOST]Is there any way I could make it better?
This is my first biome suggestion, so that's a thing...

Biomes should represent, well, a biome. Desert, forest, ocean, jungle, you get the idea.

Hallow/Corruption alts could be anything really as long as they represent a theme. This merely represents a fruit.

I just don't think a whole biome based around oranges would work. Maybe a biome based around fruit in general, and make it less like a hallow copy. For example, I don't think it needs souls, being a pre-HM biome and all. The shards are pretty useless (and entirely useless in pre-HM), since all they're used for is a weapon that we pretty much already have. You could make some enemies with original attack patterns as well.
Whatever, this thing is closed when a mod gets his hands on it. Maybe a mod though.
Well, I don't think it violates any rules, and threads don't just get closed when a few people dislike it.
Orange you guys glad to see this idea posted?

Okay . . . I'm not sure if you want me to close this or not. Let me know for sure, and I'll close it or change the title, or whatever.

Post your ideas in the comments, or ways I could make it better, and more realistic.
Uh-huh. Yeah, that's how you make a successful suggestion thread. Start it off with a sentence like that. Then, when people give you their opinions and criticism, have it closed due to "hate." Seriously, man, I totally agree with you. That's definitely not an overreaction at all.

This suggestion is going to get closed due to the hate, I won't make something like this again.

There's an essential difference between hate and lack of support, the former of which you haven't received in my opinion. As far as I can tell, what everyone's problem is, is that this biome is too shallow (it only revolves around oranges, the Hallow and Corruption revolve around themes) and that it's just a wacky idea that doesn't support the gameplay.

What a horrible accent would someone need to make that pun work

No accent, merely a lack of teeth.

Whenever I thought of an orange biome, I thought of orange mushrooms, a plant already in the game.
