    Hi friends :)

    I'd made some mods for personal use, and I was recently inspired to release them. All mods are currently available on the Mod Browser. Please report any and all bugs you may find!


    Gore Galore
    [​IMG]
    Gore Galore adds absurd amounts of blood any time an enemy (or the player) is hit. The direction and speed of the blood is determined based on what caused the damage.

    • [​IMG]

    The blood also sticks to the ceiling and to walls, and slowly drips down.

    • [​IMG]

    The amount of blood that's created can be edited in your Mod Configs folder.

    Vex's Hotkeys (and Alt-Use)
    [​IMG]
    Inspired by jopojelly's Helpful Hotkeys mod (Link), Vex's Hotkeys adds several useful hotkeys to the game.

    Alt-Use Hotkeys
    * Press a registered hotkey to immediately switch to and use the item in the corresponding inventory slot
    * Continues using the item as long as the hotkey is held down

    • [​IMG]

    * 19 available hotkeys, corresponding to inventory slots 1-19
    * Safe to assign to right click - won't activate the item if there's something important under the cursor
    - Make your own gunblade!​

    Summon Staff Hotkey
    * Finds the first available summoning item in the player's inventory and alt-uses it
    * Search begins at top left, and searches each row left to right

    Piggy Bank Hotkey
    * Immediately uses the player's Money Trough, if it's in the inventory
    * Automatically right-clicks the flying piggy bank that was summoned

    Select Safe Hotkey
    * Immediately switches to the player's safe, if it's in the inventory

    Bug Net Hotkey
    * Immediately switches to the player's bug net, and swings it once

    Tome of Sight Hotkey
    * For use with Vex's Quality of Life Items mod
    * Immediately finds and uses the player's Tome of Improved Sight or Tome of True Sight, if it's in the inventory

    Quest Fish Hotkey
    * Displays the quest fish of the day, as well as where to find it

    Download link: On the Mod Browser (or Direct Link)

    Known Bugs
    * When using an alt-use hotkey assigned to right-click, the item still activates even if the smart-cursor has a tile selected for interaction.

    The gore mod is pretty cool, I couldn't find it in the mod browser though so I used the direct link.

    I always appreciate a good gore mod. Blood dripping from ceilings is something I always wanted, especially in Crimson caves.

    Thank you for the report! At the moment, my Mod Browser never stops spinning, and is therefore completely broken. But I'll definitely look into this as soon as it comes back online.

    By the way, where is this "Mod Configs "folder?

    The Mod Configs folder can be found at "Documents\My Games\Terraria\ModLoader\Mod Configs." You'll probably find config files for other mods there as well.

    I really, really like your Gore mod!
    But could you please change the gore color of the slimes? Seeing red junks from a green or blue slime is kinda irritating. :confused:

    Glad you like it! I'll get to this suggestion in the near-future, I have an idea that should be easy to implement.

    Any chance you could add alt-use 20 so that both of the top two rows are covered?
    Also, your staff-use ability is awesome, but it treats weapons from mods that do summon damage (such as the Strange Skull from Thorium) as a staff. If you could fix for this, or at least allow us to change the direction it searches from, that would be awesome! :D

    What about a hotkey that toggles the tile grid so I don't have to keep changing it in the settings?
