Instead of working on comic this weekend, my boyfriend and I spent 37 hours on a brand-new Terraria game file with brand-new characters, getting back into the game in preparation for the upcoming major update. This world-turtle house was one of our many creations.
The ocean biome has a jellyfish spawner hooked up to a timer so it’s constantly full of cute jellies.
Far right upper biome has 49 meteorite placed, and a chest containing 1 meteorite for easy meteor biome creation.
Turtle’s eye is Demonite so it glows at night.
The house is kind of empty right now but we’ll fill it up eventually.
I haven’t allowed myself do all-out, 12-hour-stretches gaming like this for at least a year and DAMN it felt good.
NEW: - New music (Seems to be a remix of day time track) - MINIMAP! - Example of dyed armor - Little Eater pet! - New walking up 1 block tiles in action! - New trees, flowers, and cave back wall - Half-blocks and slopes - Paint! - Rainbow brick that changes water colour - New sword named Terra Blade that shoots projectiles - New statues that change the area water colour when activated! - Rocket Launcher!
