CHANGELOG
v0.8.0.2 (tModLoader 1.3):
Tier 2 Stellar Prisms can now be converted into Prismatic Cores. Fixed minor bugs with the Stellar Array. Added disambiguation to debug items. The Stellar Array ability 'Aprismatism' now deals double damage of the base projectile instead of 1/2. Gave certain projectiles net update priority. Raised the damage limit on Bury the Light's Calamity variant's Judgement Cut. (250,000 >> 1,000,000)
v0.8.0 (tModLoader 1.3):
NEW BOSSES:
Added a new boss: Penthesilea, the Witch of Ink. This bullet-hell styled boss fight requires you to keep track of your color while dodging a barrage of projectiles. Additionally, failing to defeat the boss in time will trigger an unavoidable enrage.
You can obtain the item to summon this boss, the ‘Unsullied Canvas’ after defeating Golem.
The Stellar Nova 'Garden of Avalon' and weapons 'Kroniic Principality' and 'Vision of Euthymia' are now acquired after defeating this foe.

Added a new boss: Arbitration. This amalgamation of evil swaps between Order and Chaos stances, and has a third phase which combines the two into a barrage of destruction, culminating in a truly challenging encounter.
You can obtain the item to summon this boss, the ‘Beating Crux’ after defeating the Lunatic Cultist.
The Stellar Nova 'Kiwami Ryuken' is now acquired after defeating this foe.

* In response to previous feedback, I've 'cranked up' the difficulty on these new bosses, but if the community feels that they're too overbearing to fight, I am definitely open to nerfing them.

STELLAR ARRAY CHANGES:
The Stellar Array has been expanded with 6 new Abilities!
The new Stellar Array abilities are as follows: ‘Butcher’s Dozen’ ‘Flash Freeze’ ‘Mystic Forging’ ‘Spatial Stratagem’ ‘Aprismatism’ and ‘Between the Boundary.’
Many Stellar Array passives have had their icons updated.
The Stellar Array passive ‘Aquatic Affinity’ has been completely changed to ‘Cyclic Hunter.’

STELLAR NOVA CHANGES:
Drastically buffed the scaling damage of Stellar Novas.
Tier 1 Stellar Prisms’ Damage and Crit Damage modifiers are now percentage based.
5 new Tier 2 Prisms are now available! These can be slotted into any slot of the Stellar Nova and provide one unique ability based on their boss, but do not provide stat increases. Balance between adding additional abilities and stats to strengthen your Stellar Nova!
The previous Tier 2 Prisms, 'Prism of the Cosmic Phoenix' and 'Prism of the Ruined King' have been upgraded to Tier 3 Stellar Prisms. They will only work in the first slot like before, and are now obtained by combining Tier 2 Prisms with Prismatic Cores + Empowered Totems of Light.
Each Tier 2 Prism corresponds to a boss of The Stars Above, and is a 50% drop from their respective boss.

STARFARER SYSTEM CHANGES:
Asphodene and Eridani’s Sprites have been updated. These new sprites are visible in the Starfarer Selection menu and the Stellar Nova menu.
Asphodene and Eridani will blink in the dialouge menu and in the Stellar Nova menu.
Added new dialogue and Starfarer Prompts for the new bosses.

The smaller changes are as follows:

Updated the Mod Icon.
Made several adjustments to prior dialogue.
The Stellar Nova 'Garden of Avalon' now scales less with overall damage. When the Warrior of Light is defeated, overall scaling should be the same value as before.
Any entity with 5 Max HP or lower no longer enters the player 'In Combat' when slain.
Added a fail-safe that prevents the Vagrant of Space and Time's dialogue if criteria has not been met.
Adjusted the hitbox of Theofania Inanis (Boss variant)
Fixed Key of the King's Law doubling damage in error.
Additionally, damage has been scaled down to its Umbral equivalent.

Sped up death animations on Nalhaun, the Burnished King.
Kiwami Ryuken's base Energy cost has been increased to 50.
Ars Laevateinn's base Energy cost has been decreased to 110.
Garden of Avalon's base Energy cost has been decreased to 190.
Particles have been added during the preparation and execution of Edin Genesis Quasar.
The potency of 'Void Atrophy' has been drastically increased.
Several bosses have new visual effects upon casting specific effects.
Unused weapons have been removed until they can be properly implemented at a later date.
Added the new bosses to the Boss Checklist if it is installed.​
v0.7.10.1 (tModLoader 1.3):
Added music boxes for both of Nalhaun's phases. These are craftable with Stellar Prisms, even if the boss has not been defeated yet. Attempted to remedy an issue when Everlasting Light is triggered upon defeat of the Moon Lord. Fixed several minor weapon bugs.
v0.7.10 (tModLoader 1.3):
Stellar Novas will now scale past Moon Lord to Calamity's postgame if the Calamity Mod is installed. These are tentative numbers, and are subject to change in the future. Upgrade thresholds are: Providence, the Profaned Goddess, All Sentinels of the Devourer, The Devourer of Gods, Jungle Dragon Yharon, and Supreme Calamitas. Due to this change, the 'Calamitous Prism' is now defunct and serves no purpose. It will not be removed from the mod (to prevent bugs) but it should be unequipped as soon as possible. Reworked the tooltip for 'Everlasting Light' Lowered the Mana cost of Izanagi's Edge to 25. Fixed the 'Sulphuric Sea' dialouge with the Calamity Mod if you haven't visited the normal Beach yet. The 'Astral' damage class has been renamed to 'Spatial' to avoid confusion. Weapon effects are unaffected. Hawkmoon's base damage has been increased. Increased damage due to triggering 'Paracausal Anomaly' is unaffected.

Bury The Light's Calamity variant now deals 10% of the foe's Max HP as extra damage (Cap of 250,000) when unleashing Judgement Cut on a foe with all 3 debuffs. The Vanilla variant is unaffected. Tartaglia's melee stance now does double damage. Key of the King's Law now grants a random combat-oriented buff when using the weapon from a pool of 15 buffs. These buffs last for 2 seconds. The Eye of Euthymia now lasts for 40 seconds, and will prompt you when there is 10 seconds left on the buff. Minor bugfixes.
v0.7.9 (tModLoader 1.3):
Updated The Vagrant of Space and Time. You are now constrained to a small arena; touching the walls will teleport you to the opposite side. The boss will no longer move. Attacks have been slightly adjusted to accommodate this change. Loot is unaffected. Attempted to repair a issue that may arise upon desync of 'boss completion' and dialouge with the Vagrant of Space and Time. Halved the cooldown of Kroniic Principality's 'Timeframe' and added a new effect when the Timeframe is prepared. Pets will now correctly emit light. Preloaded several (unimplemented) assets in preparation for the next boss. Other bugfixes.
v0.7.8 (tModLoader 1.3):
Added Prismatic Cores: At an anvil, you can convert Stellar Prisms into Prismatic Cores. These can then be crafted to craft pets and miscellaneous items. Added 5 pets: Futuristic Spectre, Suspicious Looking Bunny-Girl, Discount Warrior of Light, Princess of Kur, and Puppy of Shimano. These pets are purely visual and have no impact on gameplay- but some of them do play a sound effect when you die! Added the 5 summoning items required to spawn the pets. These are all crafted with Prismatic Cores, but some require additional ingredients. Added the weapons 'Vision of Euthymia' and 'Kroniic Principality.' These weapons are obtained Post-Golem, but they will be moved at a later date to instead originate from a new boss. Updated the SFX of 'Karlan Truesilver' as well as drastically increasing damage.
v0.7.7 (tModLoader 1.3):
Added Starfarer Prompts upon entering the following biomes with Thorium Mod installed: Granite, Marble, Aquatic Depths. Added Starfarer Prompts that trigger upon killing a Critter. Essence of the Phantom and Essence of the Hollowheart have been added to the Enigmatic Memory pool. You can now adjust the amount of time certain Starfarer Prompts are present on the screen for. Certain prompts, like upon entering a biome or witnessing a boss, are unable to be changed. Slightly buffed Spectres of Light present during The Warrior of Light's 3rd and 4th phases. Increased the knockback of Crimson Sakura Alpha. Amplifed the visual effects of swinging Bury The Light. The Vagrant of Space and Time now drops 5 Enigmatic Dust upon defeat but less gold. Added a new indicator when attempting to open the Stellar Nova Menu when Stellar Novas are not yet unlocked.

The weapons 'Phantom In The Mirror' and 'Hollowheart Albion' are now available after defeating Nalhaun, the Burnished King. Like with other Essences, you should be notified by your Starfarer after time has passed. Defeating the boss again should not be necessary. There are now two more config options: Disable Starfarer commentary on buffs/debuffs and Disable Starfarer commentary for combat events.
v0.7.4 (tModLoader 1.3):
Fixed several Starfarer Prompt bugs. The Vagrant of Space and Time's loot table has been adjusted. Certain weapons have had monetary values adjusted.

For 1.3, added over 30 new lines of Starfarer Prompts, including new lines for killing an enemy while in danger and when certain Stellar Array abilities activate. Fixed Nalhaun's attacks: Ars Laevateinn and The Sword of Flames.
v0.7.0 (tModLoader 1.3):
Added Nalhaun, the Burnished King. This boss revolves around both sustaining Stolen Lifeforce and keeping track of Ars Laevateinn's powerful strikes. It is meant to be fought near the same time you attempt to defeat Duke Fishron, but can be fought as early as Hallowed Bars are obtainable. (The summoning item is acquired through crafting with Hallowed Bars.)
Reworked The Vagrant of Space and Time completely. This is a fight that you can not win; instead, you must survive the onslaught until the boss cedes to your strength. Both of these bosses utilize the same custom AI as the Warrior of Light.
Added Starfarer Prompts; this is a system that allows for your Starfarers to comment on what's happening. This includes: entering a biome for the first time, getting inflicted with certain debuffs, dealing critical damage, defeating a foe, witnessing rain, blizzards, or sandstorms, or when a boss appears. Your Starfarers will attempt to give helpful information concerning the boss you're facing. These prompts differ based on your choice of Starfarer. More Starfarer Prompts will be added incrementally.

These music boxes are acquired through crafting with their bosses' respective crafting material. (Totems of Light, Enigmatic Dust)
Updated the mod icon.​
v0.6.19 (tModLoader 1.3):
Added in-game animated sprites for Asphodene and Eridani! These sprites will appear when you either activate a Stellar Nova (accounting for Kiwami Ryuken's counter-attack and Edin Genesis Quasar's prep time) or when you trigger certain Stellar Array passive abilities (Living Dead, Key of Chronology, and Afterburner.)

This mod seems to have a bug with Leveled Mod, every time i activate both of them i can't summon the starfarers and even the stellar array. Deactivating Leveled Mod every thing back to normal.

Sorry about that. After some testing, it looks like the Leveled Mod is overwriting all GUI from my mod. For now, just know it's incompatible.
[EDIT] For anyone coming in the future, as of v0.5.15, this is fixed!

So far, this mod has been a fantastic experince so far, with no collisions with any major mods like Calamity!

I really like the passive ability systems and artstyle the most. (though passive abilities could use some balances.)

I am definitely looking foward to the updates.

Although I have a question, am I allowed to share some pictures of this mod on my SNS account?

(I.E: profile pictures, and a few screenshots)

I'll make sure they know of where I've taken them.

Loving the mod so far! One issue though. It seems that none of the essences drop properly in multiplayer, forcing me to go into the item browser to grab the essence. I'm gonna try and check if its any other mod interfering, will keep you posted!

Where the essences are supposed to drop? I already killed Skeletron and dindn't see any essence till now. Maybe a bug?

This mod looks really good honestly and I really like how there is references to other game as the weapons like the Whisper of the worm and the Outbreak Perfected from destiny and the Aegis from Xenoblade.

I found yet another bug! The stellar array keeps reacting every time I go to the underworld, giving me an "Underworld Essence" every time I go down.

I found a glitch. Me and my friend defeated "the destroyer" and now we are getting spammed with messages that say "spatial disk begins to resonate" we tried uninstalling and reinstalling the mod but it wont stop. It's just spams the message.

At the moment the mod looks good, that of defeating certain bosses that let you choose some buff and be able to make other weapons.
I also got the bug in the Destroyer, I defeated it and I got the message "The Spatial disk begins to resonate", it wouldn't be much of a problem, except for the chat sound.

I got a bug, the stellar array doesn't open when I right click, both right click and left click interacts with the star farer. Currently, playing with split mod.

Sorry, I couldn't replicate the bug on my end with the mod installed. If it does happen again, would you mind checking what items or accessories you think would interfere with right clicking items?

Heyo, i absolutely love your mod, but i can't find the warrior of light's theme anywhere! What is the name of it, or could you even send me the mp3 file of it? I love the song and just want it for idle listening. Made an account just to ask this!
