For a short time, Terraria is conducting an Open Beta for the Mac/Linux version of Terraria!

Details HERE. Please read this post on Terraria Community Forums (TCF) for answers to your questions!

THE ONLY GAME CHANGE HERE IS TO ADD MAC/LINUX SUPPORT! NO CHANGES TO GAMEPLAY WERE MADE FOR PC/Windows. The version change is simply to bring the Windows/OSX/Linux versions to the same level, from here on out.

Please do not leave feedback for Mac/Linux issues here. The developers have set up a Social Group on TCF to provide feedback on the beta. Anything you post here on TerrariaOnline may well be missed.

Good afternoon everyone!

The team remains hard at work chasing bugs to squash and things to tweak within the 1.3 update. As always, your feedback is invaluable there - so keep it coming (but remember to keep it mature and respectful of everyone :) )!

Without further ado, here is the changelog for

  • Solar Flare armor set Dash ability now only consumes flares when it hits an enemy, and any hit enemy will result in a Solar Radiance explosion!
  • Party Girl's spawning chance has been increased
  • You can now take Camera Mode pictures of wiring if you hold a mechanical item while taking the pictures
  • Fixed certain issues with the Stardust Dragon's damage and rebalanced him to be more in line with other minions
  • You can now hide the Moon Charm and Neptune Shell's effects...or put them in vanity!
  • The final boss' attacks now use their own cooldown for immunity due to how naughty some of our players have been. ;)

  • Potentially fixed lag issues when using Steam multiplayer
  • Potentially fixed invasions not trigerring when they should (Martian Probes)
  • Fixed Money Trough turning 'Quick Stack to All Chests' button invisible
  • Fixed Javelins drawing behind doors on all cases
  • Fixed Keys of Light / Night not working through autopause
  • Fixed nearby crafting stations not updating when you open inventory in autopause
  • Fixed 'allow mounting' check not taking player's velocity into account (mounting into ceiling exploit)
  • Fixed breathing meter appearing when hanging on to a ceiling that has water in it
  • Fixed content files not being compressed
  • Fixed Umbrella art not being consistent
  • Fixed Solar Eruption item stray pixel
  • Fixed...

Good Day Terrarians!

As always thank you for your ongoing patience, support, and feedback! Below you will find a list of all the changes you can expect in the new live version of Terraria!

To keep you updated on Mac and Linux as well: they are both currently in development and Skiphs is making some great progress. Thus far they are both capable of running, and Linux is running on Steam! There are still some major things that need to be addressed before we can release either version, but we are still on track for a release later this month. We will keep you posted on our progress!

*Please remember that all information is important when reporting a bug, even if you think it is minor. In addition, if you are using a mod that is VERY important to include in your report!*

  • In addition to the fixes to Medusa's line of sight, she now makes sound and emits particles when petrifying players.
  • Cactus Dresser and Pumpkin Dresser now both require the Sawmill to craft.
  • Skeleton Mage Banner and Spider Banner have been renamed to accurately reflect against which enemies they will buff you in combat.
  • Enemies should no longer count towards tally counters / banners if no player has touched them before they died (i.e. random mob deaths by lava pool no longer count).
  • When dropping a banner, enemies will now give the banner to the last player to hit them rather than the nearest player.
  • "Dye Hard" now really requires having all of the equipment slots include dye, rather than just armor/accessory slots.
  • In addition to the fix for Phantasm (see below), it has been slightly nerfed.
  • Vortex beater has been slightly...
