    Hey guys, Dakota here. Two questions, one, how do you get the Painter? And second question, how do you get the Mushroom Man? These two are NCPs I really want, but have no clue on how to get them. If you guys could help me, it would really be appreciated. Anyways, thanks for reading. Dakota, out.

    You get the Truffle by using the glowing mushrooms new ability to grow on the surface. Just get some mud, place like 50 blocks on the surface and plant some mushroom seeds. Watch the magic happen, use glowing mushrooms to build a house and use them to craft mushroom furniture. As soon as the game agrees with the new area to be a mushroom biome, the truffle can move into that exact mushroom building. :3

    To get the painter, get a painting.

    I found like fifty of those in my first underground run. You can also find them in the dungeon or hell.

    They're usually in underground "shrines" or "houses" (whichever you call them.) I'm not really interested in adorning my base with them, but I'm interested in pink paint, so I've kept a few to force-spawn the painter in whichever new world I decide to move to.

    There's actually two ways to get the painter. You listed the first one, and the second is to dye your armour a different colour.

    If anyone does have trouble finding paintings, you can always find a moderate amount of them in the dungeon. I went back home with about 3 "Blood Moon Rising" paintings after a successful run in the "fungeon", which is a nice term for the Hardmode dungeon.

    Just find any of the wooden houses down below you will find them. I've found some in about 50% of the ones I found.

    okay so I created a mushroom biome on the surface (got the music and background), build a house of glowing mushrooms, with mushroom wall, muhroom workbench, mushroom chair and mushroom door, but still no truffle. I checked if it's a valid housing, it is. anyone knows what the problem is?

    Are you in hard mode (post Wall of Flesh)? If not, that's why.

    It doesn't actually have to be mushroom stuff, mine moved in with just basic wooden furniture, as long as it's in an above-ground mushroom biome.

    Painter will arrive when you already have 4 other NPCs. No painting is necessary. (source:sourcecode)

    It's not mushroom furniture that you need.

    You need his house to be in an above-ground mushroom biome.
