Hey all! Phoenixblade here, and I'm back with another, smaller mod this time. I'm a huge fan of the Yoyo weapon type, and I decided to create a small mod to add more to the Yoyo theme. Hopefully this will help out anyone doing a Yoyo playthrough!

This mod is a pretty simple mod, mainly made to practice my coding and spriting skills. The mod is independent of the Spirit Mod, and no content from this mod (barring and a Sweet Throw) will cross over into the Spirit Mod.
Do you have any ideas? Any Yoyos you'd like to see in the Mod? let me know and I might add it in!
Here's what we have so far:

Wood Counterpart Yoyos! Each is crafted with 10 of their respective Wood and 20 Cobweb at an Anvil! From left to right: Shadewood, Ebonwood, Pearlwood, Rich Mahogany, Boreal Wood, Dynasty Wood, and Palm Wood.

haven't downloaded it yet
but seems like a really good mod
by the way, it's nice that you're making mini-mods, but i really think you should put most of your work into the spirit mod
just a suggestion mod
keep up the good work fam

edit: I'm gonna do a yoyo only playthrough with this and the Yoyo Expansion mod.
wish me luck

Have fun! Glad you like it, most of the yoyos here will be in Spirit too. Don't worry about your playthrough, I'll be adding more yoyos soon :)
 
I swear those wooden yoyos look familar? did you just take them out of your spirit mod and released them early in this one?
 
Hey all! A quick update!
0.1.2
-Added two new Yoyos- Damnation and Equality!
- Fixed a small bug in which yoyos were rotating waaaaaaaaay too fast

-Also, added better looking screenshots to the thread :)
I hope you like it, expect more updates in the future!
 
Those are some noice sprites, did you do them?
If I could make a suggestion, how about giving the vanilla yoyos effects? The Eye of Cthulhu yoyo could spit out homing eyeballs or something.

Thanks! I did make the sprites myself, except for damnation, in which I edited a sprite given to me :D
It's easily possible for the EoC to have that effect, but I wouldn't know how to edit Vanilla code, I'm not too experienced.
 
Yes, bro. I share the same passion of the yoyos. They are actually my fave class, and I'm probably going to design some sprites for the Spirit mod once suggestions come back. I just came over from Happy Day's super hype new yoyo series. Dayum, yoyos are da best. Also, you should make a new post plantera yoyo that drops from plantera called the Light Bulb. It looks somewhat like plantera's bulb (that you use to spawn her), but it has a slight glowing effect (like a lightbulb). And it also has a chance to randomly shoot out petals. I could work on the sprite, but I'm going outta town this week, leaving tomorrow, so I can't guarantee it will be done this week.

Duke Fishron should drop a YoYo called "The Duke" that shoots out bubbles or sharknados. Kinda like a pseudo-Flairon, maybe?

Another suggestion from me would be Gem YoYos. Wooden YoYo + 10 gems = Gem YoYo. They could shoot projectiles similar to gem staves.
 
Tried drawing the Fireball yoyo
Nice! Your artwork is, as usual, amazing :)

Those ideas are pretty solid, I'll be working on them soon.
 
Hey what about my plantera drop idea? :( #sad
I completely didn't see that post :p But I'm not sure I'll be adding a Plantera Yoyo because of what's in the next update...
