    Toad Caves 2.0! Welcome back, friends! I've taken the opportunity to resprite and reformat my first suggestion ever! Thank you for all of the support! There are a few changes to Toad Caves; some of the redundancies have been removed and a few things have been changed and altered based on feedback.

    I like this... however my concern is with the hook. I really would rather have the webslinger because of it's maneuverability over a velocity boost.

    Also the stylist could use some new lines in a toad world.

    Haven't compared stats for balance b/c lazy and I'm tired, but support.

    The only thing I worry about in this amazing suggestion is the armor. That's 30 defense at max minion count (though I'm assuming it offers little to none by itself?)

    Whoa, this all looks phenomenal. But there's just one problem...

    If this were added, and I found out that my 1.3 world had Spider Nests in it, I would be PISSED.

    Why must it be an alternate? There's plenty of space underground for both this and spider nests.

    I figure that this would work alright as an additional mini biome rather than a black-and-white alt.

    It was a thematic choice over a functional one. I thought about it for a while too, but eventually I just said "whatever, I just want to fire a toad tongue".

    Oh, good call -- I'll update with a section for her asap

    Spoiler alert -- IMBA as all hell.

    That's 30 from the armor alone :dryadsad: Might have to adjust the numbers. I'm not a balance person.

    Well, I guess it could be either -- I can alter the OP to make an either or distinction.

    The problem with making the two together would be having two summon tiers right at each others' levels.

    lol thanks man. I put the most work into King Toad. He took me hours -- but he's still just a really clever splice.

    I got it, I got it! Didn't realize it was the Crimslime though. Nice vertebrae, too :D
  12. Izzabelle

    Izzabelle Lunatic Cultist

    Fun fact; the vertebrae was a happy accident. I was trying to add spikes. Then I zoomed out and saw that it looked like a spine and I was like "omg that's even cooler!" so I just stuck with it.

    I don't see this to fit as an alternative to spider caves but more as another biome. Alternatives are becoming slightly played out, and cobwebs / the spider biome are really irreplaceable in my opinion. Change that and I support.

    I just realized something: on both the Ball Toad and Toad Skin, there are 1x1 pixels. Does anyone else see them?
  17. Izzabelle

    Izzabelle Lunatic Cultist

    It's probably because of the splicing -- I can fix them of course if need be

    It would probably be a 50% of either to spawn (spider nest or toad place) . Well everyone would want the toad place though. The staves are cool the armor is cool the enemies look cool EVERYTHING LOOKS COOL

    I think I'd actually prefer the Spider Armor, as Hardmode is designed to seriously shock you and even toward the end you're receiving 60-70 damage from a lot of monsters (especially if you're a mage or summoner). Toad Armor probably isn't going to make much difference in keeping me alive.
