The Stars Above is a Terraria expansion mod that adds a new important game mechanic:
the Starfarer system.
Choose between either the Umbral or Astral Aspect, and unlock unique equippable abilities
within the Stellar Array, mixing and matching them to perfect your build.
With hundreds of unique dialogue lines for each Starfarer, you will become stronger side-by-side with them,
and arm yourselves for the challenges to come.
The Official Trailer for The Stars Above
The Stars Above's flagship feature: Meet Eridani and Asphodene, masters of Umbral and Astral respectively.
Empowered by their strength and led by their guidance, you will be able to challenge any foe Terraria has to offer.
Master the Stellar Array, a powerful supplement to player growth.
With 18 powerful passive abilities separated into 3 distinct tiers, you can mix and match to become the strongest Terrarian.
It is important to balance strength with cost to create the most efficient setup.
Along with the Stellar Array mechanic, there are a myriad of new weapons exclusive to your respective Aspect carefully made with
unique gameplay in mind. This mod embraces quality over quantity; each weapon is tailored to provide a
fresh experience, and you may recognize some of them...
*Certain weapons shown will be added at a later date, not all weapons are pictured
At the end of your journey, The Stars Above has one last challenge for you: The Warrior of Light.
This fight will pit you against the pinnacle of heroes, testing
your strength and willpower. It will push you to your limits- and beyond.
In Expert Mode, prepare for a challenge that will test every limit of your abilities.
For enjoyers of the Calamity Mod:
Several weapons are custom-tailored to suit the post-Moon Lord endgame the Calamity Mod offers,
with more on the way.
These weapons will have alternative crafting recipes and damage scaled to the Calamity Mod if it is installed.
This mod is meant to be utilized in tandem with other mods to enhance the gameplay experience.
Fully compatible with multiplayer, but there may be some desync issues.
Compatible with saves, but highly recommended to start a new playthrough.
There are numerous features currently in development:
> Equippable Active Abilities for your Starfarer to turn the tide of battle
> More weapons
