VisibleCursor

Replaces the cursor with one that is more visible in my opinion. There are two versions :
  • Darkest - Has black border that can't be colored. Without the border the outline is white and can be colored.
  • Color - Has white border that can be colored. Without the border the outline is black and can't be colored.

I forgot to add borders in the last version since I don't use them so I updated the texture pack

I'm not clear why but this doesn't seem to be working for me. I had to unzip the file and rearrange everything so the icon and pack file were not in the main folder and then re-zip it before it would even show up as available in my texture packs but enabling it does not change the appearance of my cursor.

This is an awesome QoL texture pack!!<3

Edit: Is there a way to make it a bit larger also?

No way of making the cursor bigger that I know of. It can be more detailed though.

You only need to unzip the file and place the folder in Resource Packs. When you enable the texture pack it activates when you go back to the main menu. The Texture Packs screen doesn't refresh so you need to go back to the main screen and then click on Texture Packs again for the folder to appear.

That was intentional, I find that black border is the most visible when there's a lot of projectiles on the screen, but I'm glad you figured out how to make it work for you !

i think it's better to make it white since users can actually disable border ingame, but it's your cursor. loving it

I added a version with border that can be colored in v1.2, I kept a version with the black outline for people that want the darkest outline (like myself). Thanks for the suggestion.

What does the error message say? I had quite a few people test this and it works for them as well for me.
Try updating your Terraria if you haven't already and make sure you follow the instructions.

In some games, I have seen that the cursors are rainbow-colored so that they stick out no matter what situation the player is in.

I may try this at a later date, feel free to try it. Thanks for the idea!

I wouldn't use it personally but I see how it could help the cursor stick out. I just tested it and different colors do work for the cursor, it is not limited to grayscale, so I think you're all good!

Sorry to necro, but did you manage to make the cursor centered like that instead of an arrow? (as in, make the selection part be in the center of the sprite)

I doubt that's possible with texture packs, you could probably do it by modding the game.
