Today's feature is a brand new mod that is named after the creator, Obsidian54.

Obsidian is not another mod that adds nukes and overpowered items to the game, but adds fun little toys and also revamps the AI to be a bit more challenging and unique. An example of some of the changes to the AI are random spawns; instead of just random slimes spawning everywhere, they now have a chance to be armored and buffed. The author states this should be affecting roughly 32 NPC's in the game, growing over time.

To add icing to the cake there are also 6 brand new NPCs and a Boss called a Dark Wyvern. Pretty much the same thing as the wyvern but with a ton more of health and damage, plus its own custom AI.

In addition to fun AI changes and new NPCs, there are fun new items to discover with this mod. An mod1.png orb which changes the time of day, mod2.png a cannon which shoots feathers , and even vanity armor such as the Rabbit Armor set.

For more information on the mod, or to download, check out Obsidian54's Mod Thread.

We thought we'd try a new type of feature here on Terraria Online; a weekly compendium of player creations, all based on a very specific theme. There is much to see, create, and discover in the world of Terraria, so the aim of this recurring piece is to focus on a small part of it and see what you all have come up with.

This week's theme? Dryad Dwellings! She's been with us since day one and leans toward the greener side of life. Let's see some examples of prime Dryad living quarters:

Today we are featuring another tool; this time an interactive Terraria mapping program created by mrkite. With Terrafirma you can use the client textures, zoom in and out, and even hover over blocks and chests to get detailed information on what's inside the chest. One of the coolest features is the ability to highlight blocks if you're seeking a particular block type!


Be sure to check out this video of Terrafirma!

Download it now and find more information at the official Terrafirma thread.

Today's Terraria Feature is a modding tool called TEdit 3 by TerrariaOnline forum member BinaryConstruct. Many of you may be familiar with TEdit 2, but with the major content patch 1.1, TEdit hit it's third version. TEdit 3 improves performance significantly over TEdit 2, not to mention a ton of new features and tools.


TEdit 3 is a huge step forward from TEdit 2, and leaps and bounds better than the orginal TEdit. First off, the program has been optimized heavily, using XNA to display the world. That alone makes the program run really smooth and dragging around the map is quicker than ever.


Another awesome new feature is the ability to create a new map from scratch. You can customize the width and height as well as the surface and bedrock levels, and in no time you have a blank world to start building in. There is a box to enter a "World Id (Seed)" but in my testing it didn't change anything, so that might possibly be a feature down the road.


The newest feature added, was the ability to add friendly NPC's to your world. From the "World Properties" tab you can add each NPC separately and change their name to your liking. Also in the "World Properties" tab you can toggle whether your world is in Hardmode or not, as well as which bosses have been...
