    Introduction & Special Thank You
    [​IMG]
    Welcome to the River!

    The River was my 2nd ever suggestion and alternate. It is based on the rivers of the Underworld in Greek Mythology. At the time of creating this suggestion, I didn't really know how to sprite much at all. So to compensate, a great deal of the sprites I used were recolors, splices, or existing sprites with minor alterations. Since then, I have created many more alternates and have improved both my skill at formatting and at spriting. Because of this, however, The River fell behind in terms of quality. And there it sat...

    But to my surprise, many of you did not hold this against The River. And to this day, it remains one of the most liked suggestions I have ever proposed. It was clear to me that with the advent of 1.3 and the great support you have shown for the alternate; The River was due for an update to bring it in line. That day is here! Much of the sprites have been updated to better reflect my original vision for The River and it has been further brought in line with Greek Mythology. I hope everyone enjoys the changes, I tried to keep as much as possible true to the spirit that is the suggestion so many of you have come to love.

    Sincerely, thank you so much for the support! Enjoy!

    Whenever people make these, I always appreciate the immense effort that goes into a biome suggestion. Also, Greek Mythology is freakin' badass. I'd adorn my home with all those paintings.

    @Izzabelle, why does the Ferryman only drop swords? There should be one weapon for each class.

    Mana: The Gathering and the Pac-Man ghosts? You've outdone yourself with the paintings. There should be a reference to Oddeysseus (I butchered the spelling, didn't I) and his journey to the underworld. Or maybe Sisphyus pushing the rock?

    Edit: Scratch that, reference the band Styx.

    I think my edit got buried up there, but I had said maybe a subtle reference to the band Styx would be pretty cool.

    Wonderful idea! It's a super creative alternative to the Underworld!
    Noticed a lovely little Binding of Isaac reference in there as well.

    Aside from the sprites, which you've already stated you're still trying to get better at, I think my main criticism would be that many of your items and enemies function a little too similarly to items and enemies that already exist in Terraria. That may just be my personal preference though, so take what I say with a pinch of salt.
     
  18. Izzabelle

    Izzabelle Lunatic Cultist

    It's by design. I have some radically oddball ideas for the game, but suggestions within existing mechanics are not only easy to understand, but (hopefully) easy to implement should any part of the suggestion actually be picked up. So I don't try to reinvent the wheel so to speak.
