Now this is an interesting mod. I look forward to seeing what else you do with it! Thank you for sharing pictures of your work as you go. It really makes a big difference in spreading enthusiasm for the mod.

I agree, that's some really awesome spritework!
now watch him get recruited by the Calamity Team for paid work and abandon this
funny thing is, im an X-calamity Dev and so is most of the mod team, so none of us want anything todo with the Calamity mod at all

Very interesting...

Plz don't let this project be dead!

Its not dead, progress is just very slow

I know things have been quiet for a while but the mod is still being actively worked on. we are currently trying to find some one who can do world gen code so we can maybe have an actual biome on release, but in terms of good news we have decided to add another boss to the release version, so instead of 4 bosses you will be getting 5. It will still be quite some time though before the mod is fully ready to release, im estimating it will be out some time next year, im going to keep updating this forum post with new stuff when there is stuff to show off.
 
Hallow Siren has some new moves!:

I always find it how all these Ex/Future/IwannaBeBetterThanCalamity Devs' push for unique content is great, thou I'm starting to see this ripple filter alot these days. Thou you might wanna tone it down a bit, it seems a bit too strong and large for a miniboss.

Love me some rainbows too!

Anyways, I had forgotten about this mod to be honest as this was the day before I left the forums (reasons that are not important here, but before returning later of course), looking though the comments here it's pretty clear this work isn't getting enough attention which is rather sad, it reminds of this mod to a large degree, which if not for the misreading name and overbearing wall of text, has some things that I don't think people have done before at all. Not trying to advertise here, just the underdogs deserve a chance of the spot light.

Anyways yeah your siren is sexy af, I can tell both the coders AND spriters working on this project are very skilled, and it can go places for sure, good luck!

I mean given how her song is strong enough to rip open space to teleport enemies in I think the ripple effect is just fine, also thank you for the kind words and support, were working hard to make sure this mod brings new and fun things to both fight, play with, and explore

This mod shows lots of potential. Hope we'll get to see more in the future.

Cloaker-Dropkick-fast edit: I really like that Penguin-wyvern sprite. Looks real cool.

Gunlance has been overhauled,before it felt like it was just a lance that did more damage but now its something more unique
Before: every 3rd hit fired a shell, right clicking blocked
Now: left click will fire shells, right clicking stabs, stabbing 3 times will build up a single shell, you can store up to six, you can hold left click to charge a shell making it deal an additional 50% damage, you get a passive damage reduction buff while the weapon is out, the buff will reduce damage from one attack and then go on a 5 second cool down, having the gunlance out will reduce your max velocity by 10%
