tModLoader Worldbits: Yuyu's Worldgen

Yvori

Terrarian
Ah! Wonderful, I've been consistently annoyed at the lack of simpler structure mods for Terraria that don't also add a ridiculous amount of progression and stuff, the only one seemed to be JereTheJuggler's mod. Leave it to Yuyutsu to finally make another! Looks gorgeous, I kinda wish I hadn't made a world for my latest playthrough already, but alas...

Oh, well, there was Spelunker Surge from Yuyu as well but that seemed to have gotten abandoned and was a bit content-bare worldgen-wise.
Oh but speaking of which, do you plan to add any of the stuff from Spelunker Surge to this? I feel like some of it would make sense and fit here. The Fossil biome could very well be made into a sort of bone-filled cavern structure. But ah- regardless...

One thing I'd reccommend is limiting loot somewhat. If a structure spawns in every world, don't have it drop its unique loot every world. One thing about Terraria is that you never know for certain if your world will contain a specific item, and where it may be. Otherwise, make structures sparse, have some only generate some of the time, etc. Especially if a structure is supposed to generate several times, have it sometimes not have any loot, sometimes have some, sometimes rarely have really good loot, etc. Not all structures need loot either!

Anyhow, new structures! The Underworld could definitely use some love, especially in the outer parts of the map where the town stops generating.
Stuff like profane shrines, hanging cages, obsidian spires and temple ruins, maybe some little bits of failed demon-expansion into the cavern layer.
Maybe some "docks" over lava lakes, statues of demonic lords long gone, etc.

Honestly, more underground structures in general would be great. Despite spending so much time underground, you always just find the same old wooden boxes everywhere, it's lame.
It'd be cool to see some more stone ruins and old temples and stuff underground, bits of ancient buried cities and the like. Little underwater underground shrines...
Perhaps a completely fossilized living-tree? A quarry that accidentally dug into the Underworld and got abandoned after demon attacks?
A cave-in that buried some loot along with its original discoverer? An ancient smeltary using the natural lava from deep underground.
Old worm-burrows filled with the remains of adventurers.

The underground tundra could have some old Viking ruins, maybe some little shrines dedicated to Pigrons of legend, buried glaciers...
The underground desert could have some statues, maybe some actual Antlion nests/hives, small hidden tombs/crypts...
Perhaps rarely have the roots of a Living Tree expand into the overgrown ruins of a lost Dryad settlement.
Maybe the remains of a Martian ship which crashed into a floating island and got stuck in its side.
Some little wooden platforms in the Jungle used to navigate the often water-covered ground.
Maybe some mini-structures in the Dungeon that show places the Mechanic was working on machinery,
or things that hint to the Cult's presence inside, old Eldritch statues of the Moon Lord, etc.

Glad to see you've been having fun with these, the mod is looking great :)
It's all thanks to you for giving me those first steps!

Thank you for all of your suggestions! It's always good to hear from you; I appreciate your feedback a bunch! I'm not sure if stuff from Spelunker would return, but it would becool to see a fossil cavern or some kind of smaller scale version of the biome. Be on the lookout for that, perhaps.

To the rest of you, here's a sneak peek at some of the more interesting things we can do with microstructures... custom encounters? (The actual structure for this particular encounter hasn't been built yet, oops :p ).
 
Underworld could certainly use some more variations of the demon towers, the same straight-ish designs are somewhat boring all the time.
I vaguely remember in my time with Starbound a collection of sandstone structures with busted up race statues. Probably similar to replicate in Terraria even if the statues aren't sandstone.
The ocean I'm honestly not sure of, if only because two of the major mods really manipulate the sides of the map super hardcore *glances at Thorium and Calamity* With that said, sunken shrines or shipwrecks both would be thematic, maybe a beach-placed lighthouse microdungeon?

Hey guys! I’m looking for ideas for microstructures I can implement for coming updates. If you have any suggestions for Underground, Desert, Ocean, or Underworld structures, please suggest them here! Thanks :)
I think a giant living mushroom with some unique items within would be neat, or some form of mushroom themed building hallowed out as a home. the mushroom biome is far too empty!
