So as you know the Creation Compendium has not been around for sometime now. I like to take the time and kickstart that once again. Before we can begin we are going to need to collect some themes and also the deadline time and date.
So don't worry about old themes. It's been a while and I don't think most people here would mind redoing some the past themes now with so many new and unique opportunities with mods and features added into Terraria over the years.
So what we need from you guys!
  • Themes
  • Time and date the deadline for the week to submit CC in by. Then will post them the next day. I'm thinking Deadline Sunday Night and Post them Monday. Gives people the weekend to finish.

Some exciting 1.3 Spoilers!

Bringing NPCs to Life
Terraria NPCs have always been helpful – and witty – but limited in what they could do. 1.3 brings a number of NPC animation changes that are intended to help bring them to life and make them feel more like an interactive part of your world. While we were at it, we decided to go ahead and give our crew of NPCs a visual "makeover".

Oh, and we’ve also improved their AI – for example, you won’t have to deal with the Merchant standing in front of your chests/piggy banks anymore (seriously, what was he doing there anyway)?

Worldgen Changes & Minibiomes
Terraria 1.3 will introduce some subtle – yet exciting – changes at the Worldgen level. First and foremost, starting areas will be cleaned up and smarter. In addition, a handful of Mini-Biomes have been added for intrepid explorers to discover.

Armor Changes

Terrarians have always been a little “stretchy” in the torso – and quite visibly so when running! We’ve taken care of that by putting that spring in their step. The end result is that your character will look much more natural as he/she runs around in their world!

More Spoilers:

The Crimson is getting a bit of attention in this update.

When smart cursor is enabled stairs will place automatically.

Concept sketch by Crowno. You will see these guys in one of the new events...

Something Yorai has been working on...I will let you speculate.

I just wanted to personally reassure you guys and girls that Terraria Online is going to stay open.

I can't promise any new updates to Xenforo as that seems to be an issue that we are dealing with right now. But I will keep pushing the issue with Curse and hope to have some future updates for you guys and girls soon.

I just wanted to congratulate the new Terraria.org Forum Launch that happen today! Another great site to join and another core source of news as well. Will also make sure we cross post news from Terraria.org to Terraria Online and keep you guys updated.

Will also be looking into bring a few more Moderators to our staff team. I would love to hear your suggestions about this a bit more.

I also launched my own Project called Stardale it's like between Terraria and Minecraft Modded but with a full explorable universe and when I say Universe I mean space that you actually fly around and explore. Big Thanks to people Like Andrew, And all the Minecraft Mod Developers and old school Games like Elite for inspiring us to make the game of our dreams. There is also going be Multiplayer, Single Player and Multiplayer Dedicated Servers that you can run that can hold 100's if not 1000's of players.

So you guys tell us what you like to see from Terraria Online. How should we go with Moderators. Any sections that need to be changed or revamped on the forums? Any major rule changes that are causing problems. We would love to hear your feedback on making Terraria Online better.

Good day Terrarians!

We always love community feedback when it comes to the development for Terraria. As we have been getting massacred in Redigit's new project we thought it would be fun to add several new death messages to the game!

This is where you come in! We would like to know what death messages you would like to see in the game. Please give the situation for the message and the message itself. We will be picking randomly as we see fit and will give credit in the changelog to the ones we end up using!
