So much for ‘Journey’s End’ being the final Terraria update, eh? You won’t hear me complaining, however, as the addition of Steam Workshop support is an absolute boon for a game with a thriving modding community such as this. Oh, and there’s more fun in the recently released 1.4.2 patch too.
Resource Packs! Texture Packs! Music Packs! Language Packs! All the pack packs! Everything a pack pack! Worlds? Oh sure. Those too. If you absolutely must upload entire worlds to Steam Workshop (…please do). That said… if you want to take the modifying a bit further, beyond cosmetics, perhaps directly impacting gameplay, you’ll want to check out tModLoader. Which, at the time of writing, has not been updated for Terraria 1.4.x. Just something to keep in mind.
Now, if you head on over to the workshop and scroll down, you might notice something with ‘Developer’s Choice’ in it. Well, that section is exactly what it says on the tin: a “special curated part of the Workshop where the Re-Logic team will be hand-picking Worlds and Resource Packs”. This is, needless to say, quite an honor for those featured.
Other features? Ah yes, I did say there was more to this patch than Steam Workshop support, and it’s true. A slew of bugs have been squashed, including a certain duplication exploit, although while that’s cool and all, how about Enemy Banners now also applying to projectiles rather than just contact damage? Or the ability to rename not only characters but worlds too? Groovy stuff all-around.
