    Being a fan of this genre is a bitch because we're met with constant fucking disappointments left and right.
    Terraria is the only game to truly make it work but even it flies too close to the sun at times with some of its design choices, but I think that's fair considering how good of a job they did and experimenting is a good thing for any artist.
    I only hope my eventual project makes it passed all the other failures.

        Thats what I'm fucking saying! Its infuriating.
        Minecraft is really enjoyable. Its super simple but it achieves what it sets to do, and it never meant to be "that" big in the first place at least. So its not like it underachieves.
        Then we had Terraria. Terraria's excellent, blended RPG elements well and introduced a lot of systems that should've stuck.

        Every game after was just fuckups.

      It's a really good case study on why 90% of games are shit. Because most of the time the people who make them have no idea what makes a game fun or what their target audience actually wants. It's like they don't research by playing games that are popular and then closely paying attention to what specific aspects made them popular. If I had the attention span to make my own game that's where I'd start: I would play all the most popular games in that genre, poll the players on what they enjoyed most, and then steal all those ideas.

        I feel I already understand what makes Terraria tick, and what doesn't. Which is what I'm basing my idea around, and just making it a bit larger.

        You can see where so many games failed, and why. Games like Starbound, Cube World, even minor hits like Valheim and others. They understand bits and pieces, but they don't get the whole picture.
        But those failures are important to recognize and learn from, it teaches you what to works and doesn't. What pitfalls to avoid.

          I really do hope you make it big and can make it even close to as good as terraria
          you deserve the millions you would get from that, and I don't think anyone would be able to talk shit about you with so many failures by the wayside that you leap frog over

            I know anon, I believe that I do in my heart of hearts and I'd die to make this project real but my skills aren't there yet, but that's why I'm taking classes and working bit by bit.
            Its having been bitten by all these projects in the past and having played Terraria since releaseday that's given me perspective on the genre and what it needs, I should be glad nobody found the formula yet but I still can't help but be infuriated that we have no proper successor to Terraria yet after all this time

            dungeon defenders literally has the same issue
            the first game was lightning in a bottle, and everything they have tried to do after it has just been dogshit that pales in comparison lmao
            the closest they have gotten is just barely playable okay-ish games that are more nostalgia, longing, or whatever you want to call it for the original rather than standing on their own

            I can agree, I admittedly haven't actually played Dungeon Defenders, only played OMD1 and 2. But they were moreso examples of explaining the merging of genres or ideas together.

          What did valheim/starbound do wrong?

          • 2 months ago
            Anonymous

            Starbound is genuinely half-assed and led by incompetents. There was no strong direction nor quality content to balance that out and ironically no artistic drive behind it. The original storywriters and coders that made it look promising? Gone.
            Another example is regularly shifting/cutting content for their "vision" which was just a race to release.
            The only thing it got right were the very basics that gave it a building game foundation but then they lost most of their programmers anyways.

        Starbound will always stick out in my memory as the most monkey like example of game design I have ever experienced.
        When I gave it another shot and they had fucking added crafting times I swore to never open that piece of shit again.
        Not only did it now take real time to craft an item, sequentially if you wanted to craft multiples, but it wouldn't even function unless you stayed there on the crafting menu. They'd clearly seen the concept in that other game, the 2d top down one with the eggs where you would leave a weapon to craft on the bench and it would have random modifiers, and thought it was "cool and we should add it to our game", like the mongoloid retards they are.
        They fucking added this as a feature.

          Starbound is the most baffling example to me because they had the formula ready to go in early access and then they added a bunch of shit to it that made it less fun, like a boring campaign mode where your objective is to scan furniture. They deliberately left the shooting gameplay undeveloped because one of the söyböy lead devs didn't like guns. And instead of maintaining Terraria's SNES art style, they chose to go full furfag and make the game about cute talking beanie baby animals. Why god damn beanie babies? In a space game? Why not aliens? They could have sold 10x as many copies if they'd just designed it how their target audience wanted it.

          starbound fucking failed because they added that stupid cutscene at the start. the reason terraria and minecraft work is because you just get right into the actual game with no shit in the middle. not saying cutscenes are bad but if you are trying to make a game where you do whatever you want cutscenes def dont help with that

        The Stardew Valley guy had the right mindset and approach to how to make a good game
        >guy loved Harvest Moon series
        >but hated the direction the series took and how bad the most recent games turned out to be
        >instead of just complaining on the internet about the series' sorry state, decided to make his own HM game adding every single QoL he always wanted but never got
        >ends making the ultimate farming sim that mogs all HMs
        The issue is that even when you have someone who is truly a fan of a series, most of the time they end up only wanting to make a clone of whatever is their favorite game (case in point: temtem, which ended being just a shitty pokémon clone) instead of trying to make a legit improvement over it. They limit themselves, because they see the games they're copying as something perfect instead of noticing all of its flaws and thinking of ways to improve their formula.

        tldr: you need passion to make a good game

            Valheim does it by percentage reduction, and it's like dota where high armor values basically do nothing. I think you max out on like 66% armor reduction or something.

              Best system is to do both and have different armors with different values.
              One does (damage * 0.9 - 20), another does (damage * 0.7 - 5).

              damage reduction is shit precisely because it starts to snowball at high percentages and is meaningless at low percentages and it's just dogshit and lazy
              it makes no fucking sense for the armour to be just as effective at protecting from the weakest enemy in the game as much as the strongest one
              damage thresholds are more realistic and intuitive and they let you become immortal to weaker enemies while keeping strong ones a threat

            "Better than Minecraft" isn't an accolade. Minecraft barely even has combat.

            It's still a dogshit boring point and click shooter reminscent of an early 2000s flash game at its core. "But dude hotkey iframes! And hotkey heals!" We're talking about combat that's roughly on par with fucking Stardew Valley.

    Too much grinding. The game would be a lot better if it was less focused on building and more focused on items and build variety. The item progression is also pretty annoying, it’s very on-rails. You can’t just find meteors early on and steamroll the beginning, you have to check all the boxes. I guess you could call this balance, but for me it takes some of the fun out. Building arenas is a pain. I love the concept of it but it’s tedious. Inventory management is also a huge pain. Game is really just missing a lot of QoL features. Why can’t I just put everything in one chest? Fucking retarded

        A sandbox game is an "open-ended" game. Its something that provides you with a lot of options for a vast majority of the game, and you can make those choices largely whenever you want.
        Terraria lets you do hundreds of different things at any point.
        Sure, the game progresses as you beat bosses, but the ways you can go about that are different.

        The strength of a sandbox game is the agency you have as a player at every point. Nothing is forcing you to do anything at any point, you can just go and do what you like whenever you want. And people like that, they like having the ability to just "go build a house" or "make a teleporter from A to B" whenever.
        You can skip steps of progression all over Terraria as well, (though 1.4 frustrates me a good bit because it cuts back on this good design philosophy it had) which only gives players more freedom with what they want to do.
        You can pick your battles better, you can set a pace for yourself. Its as difficult as you make it.

        I can understand why people can find Terraria boring, but its entirely how you APPROACH a playthrough. Terraria isn't something like Dark Souls where you just play from start to finish with a build, fighting bosses to get to the end of the game. There's more to do in between progression points. It scratches multiple itches for a lot of people that like blending a lot of ideas together and experiencing them all at once.

        Its why games like "Orcs Must Die" or "Dungeon Defenders" exist. They're multiple ideas or genres that flow well with each other, because they're built with each other in mind, namely Tower Defense and Third Person Shooters.

          dungeon defenders literally has the same issue
          the first game was lightning in a bottle, and everything they have tried to do after it has just been dogshit that pales in comparison lmao
          the closest they have gotten is just barely playable okay-ish games that are more nostalgia, longing, or whatever you want to call it for the original rather than standing on their own

            the state of dungeon defenders makes me sad, man.
            i loved the first game to death, but since then all they've done is make a shitty sequel and remake the first one twice (both of which lose that spark it had)

          I appreciate the effort of the post, but there are always these "write a paper on why Terraria is unique" posts when it just objectively isn't THAT unique. It brings a few new things to the table, a core component, and majority of the game is STILL cutting wood, digging/mining and crafting new shit just like Minecraft. The added additions that Terraria brings are cool, but Ganker acts like these extra additions are the next coming of Christ and it makes zero fucking sense.

          To be clear, I don't find Terraria boring, but this whole "I can't believe it's not minecraft" religion Ganker has built around it is bordering on mental illness

                It's not that it's not FUN, it's that people here elevate the combat to heights that it's not worthy of. Every Terraria thread is the same shit. People larping that the content, though at its base is somewhat fun, is somehow x10 better than it ACTUALLY is. Everyone hand waves away the majority of the content that is literally Minecraft tier, because "muh bosses", and then justifies the mediocre combat due to the fact that "other platformers have worse combat". People here refuse to admit that a majority of the game is spent doing the exact same tasks as Minecraft, because the concept of bosses exist, somehow making it completely fresh and new.

                I just explained that. Terraria and Minecraft have similar methods of progression, but unlike Minecraft, Terraria gives you a payoff in the form of fun and engaging boss fights, Minecraft gives you jack shit because the fun is in the building and exploring, very different games who's similarities are really only surface level haha

                I jerk off over the grinding and I'm not sure what posts you're quoting about people losing their mind over bosses themselves. If anything, anons talk about all of the weapons/items and not balanced build diversity

                People don't handwave 99% of the content, that's the content that they enjoy. A lot of people like grinding/collecting things. A lot of people like character building. Terraria isn't unique in having any of that, it simply has a lot of it without any of it having flaws sufficient to drag down the overall experience.
                Minecraft has collecting as well but you're collecting dirt and varying metals. The items you can collect in Terraria, how you can use them, and it having actual combat gives far greater meaning to items than Minecraft.
                At most, bosses only partially contribute to the value of items, but its still the items, the grinding, the "99% of the game that people ignore" that people play Terraria for.
                TL;DR: You have it backwards. People like Terraria for the 99% of the game that is grinding and bosses, if anything, are only noted as contributing to the value of grinding.

            I understand your sentiment anon. I feel the same way about it sometimes too.
            But its not about Terraria being "unique" really, but a culmination of a lot of pre-existing ideas that work SO well together.

            Almost everything in Terraria is ripped from something else in media. There's hundreds of references in tooltips, achievements, dialogue, weapon gimmicks, you name it. But what makes it click for so many people is how these ideas are brought together in the gameplay.

            Because combat in Terraria is really fun and makes all the "boring" stuff worth it and feel retroactively engaging.
            In minecraft you mine, craft and build shit, but for what? To fight the Wither and Ender Dragon? Combat in Minecraft is absolute dogshit and entirely not the focus.

            has it right, the combat is a lot of the payoff of Terraria. Its pretty damn decent for a platformer that relies so much on digging and building.
            There's a LOT of problems with Terraria's combat though, but its serviceable and even pretty great in spots. It achieves entirely what it needs to, and thats enough for people.

            Compared to Minecraft, Terraria actually fleshes out ideas. You enchant a sword in minecraft to deal a ton of damage, but what for? There's no genuine threat in minecraft, or anything gating you from progressing. The only real progress in Minecraft is pickaxe strength, and after you get diamond you're pretty much able to access everything in the game. So the only worthwhile effort beyond that is just goals you create for yourself, like building large structures. While conversely, Terraria has something behind every minor achievement that contributes to the overall progression in some way. There's very few instances in Terraria where effort doesn't pay off.

            And all of this is from a game that's been getting updated for free since 2011, and has literally no purchasable DLC.

                I love Terraria so much, but I do think it doesn't get talked about enough in the right ways.
                Most people just unanimously agree "Its good!" But they never talk about why or how. Its never a dissection of what works or doesn't.
                Maybe I should make a video essay one day, I don't know.
                Talking about what makes Terraria good requires a lot of comparisons to other ideas or franchises to really sell it, and that can get nightmarish to write or break down into something palatable to listen to.

                actually, i can sum up pretty succinctly what makes terraria so good and other games that try to emulate it not so good

                the crafting doesn't suck for the most part
                the combat gets better and better the longer you progress
                NPCs actually provide useful tools and items consistently as long as you have the required currency
                bosses, while tough, aren't impossible
                the music is pretty good
                the random events are fun and provide really good items if you can live long enough to grab one

                and the most important one in my opinion is how many options there are for combat builds

            Terraria is uniquely good. Not unique in what it brings to the table. People like it because it has a lot of shit to do, I don't see a majority of people claiming those things are unique, only that Terraria is unique in actually letting you do all the things and not being shit.
            It's like Hit and Run or Ultimate Destruction being fellated on Ganker not because they were amazingly unique games, but simply because they were good games with very little dragging them down. It's hard not to like those games.

                and that's where you are wrong, you don't understand that 2D graphics enchence gameplay in a entirely different way that 3D does.
                If you bring terraria to 3D, the world will be less interactive, combat less dynamic and overall gameplay limited by first or third person perspective. a huge part of terraria's gameplay is the ability to see entire area around your character and enemis being able to attack you regardless if there is a wall between you or not.

                much like there are things that you cannot properly show in 2D, there are also things that you cannot properly show in 3D.
                if you follow this line of thinking you'll just make cubeworld 2.0 and curse at these damn terraria kids for not buying your game.

                Thats why its inspired by Terraria, anon. Terraria's combat is already rather dull and janky, but thats why we can replace it with something much better, faster and responsive. Whether a wall is between you and an enemy doesn't really matter.
                3D benefits the system more than just combat, it benefits exploration. Arena's aren't as necessary anymore because of troublesome terrain, plus a lot of my own ideas.

                But it doesn't help that Terraria's gravity is also really floaty and forces a lot of commitment with actions, which is pretty frustrating for action games.

                1. that's why huge selection of movement enhancing accessories exist in the game
                2. letting player not commit with movement without punishment makes the movement less intricate and less skilled thus mastering it would not feel rewarding. you'd have to make movement intricate in some other way as to make it feel rewarding for a player who is moving correctly

                Terraria's combat is dull and janky in the sense that things like flight, and intricate or light changes movement, are really difficult to do. Precise dodges are hard to do, and it doesn't help that most of Terraria's projectiles blend in with a fuckton of the backgrounds.
                The combat is also dull in the sense of healing, bosses are more just a test of endurance than memorizing any sort of patterns. They encourage the use of the nurse (hence why you can heal with her via coins in a piggybank) and also that its very cheap to do so.
                Bosses are also expensive to fight, worm food can be an annoying grind if you dont have the rotten chunks and vile powder to make it. Mechanical bosses can be expensive if you keep dying over and over.
                Still, love me some Terraria. I've become VERY used to all the bosses and can handle them all fine on my own, but from the perspective of a lot of new players? Yeah, I can understand why they don't like the combat. I agree with their sentiments, and I've been playing since launch day and docked over 2k hours

                3D planes are much easier to fight in because you have more choice in where to move and run. Attacks aren't any easier or harder to dodge from this change, but you have more choice with the direction you're going. In a 2D space? You might just have a wall to your left and right. But in 3D? You have all 360 degrees of direction around you to go in, you have that agency and choice of where to kite.

                And what the fuck is this "wall" argument? You realize walls are one of the BIGGEST fucking problems with Terraria's bosses?
                Its why every single boss just flies, digs, or phases through terrain. There's no strategy to how you approach most bosses, its just kiting and retreating. There's no ebb and flow to a fight. Bosses just always FLY towards you.

                Just keep an open-mind about it.

                Well of course, nobody's arguing that, but 3D provides a lot more depth.
                Another point to doing 3D is to build more immersion and a thicker atmosphere. You can really dive into a space like that a lot better. It's a lot more than just combat to improve on, its a setting and story to build on too.

                retarded statement, this is a false choice because adding a axis will just mean that attacks will fly at you from one more direction, the rest of this paragraph has little to no sense

                are you stoned? walls don't come to play durning boss fights because they are designed to be fought in open spaces, walls are important durning exploration combat (dungeon is a good example) or invasions
                >There's no strategy to how you approach most bosses, its just kiting and retreating
                you could reduce any videogame fight ever to "its just kiting and retreating", terraria bosses are designed mostly to be a bullet hell experience, nothing works better in an action platformer game
                >There's no ebb and flow to a fight. Bosses just always FLY towards you.
                plain false, just because most bosses have a ramming attack doesn't mean that's the only thing they do

                I'm not that guy but I've generally found the dodging and stuff to be annoying in terraria, i mostly play melee so i'm at a disadvantage there though and I know it. Still, like, it becomes very reliant on having high movement speed and building arenas out of the right materials and shapes to compensate for silly stuff, but then regardless on the higher difficulties than classic enemy AI change and you can't even jump to avoid basic enemies like zombies cause they jump with you to body-block you. I'm not a fan of contact damage in general for this kind of game, stuff should have to actually attack, but terraria just is the way it is and its WAY too late to change that now

                It might not be too late for half the enemies since they all run on the same base AIs. The real challenge is that the devs would have to spend a lot of time on making sure it doesn't break anything.

                is an excellent critique in my opinion, there is no reason for not being any reward for doing something as daunting as clearing the entire world.
                I think adding rewards for beating every boss on a single world, completing the bestiary etc. would be a good change.
                however literally none of the other anon's arguments hold any water, hence the blogpost

Not because it's hard to play around it, but because the correct play around chattering teeth bomb is to camp in a bunker durning blood moon instead of fighting in the open. existance of enemies such as chattering teeth bomb is why I never play on hardcore, it sucks when the correct play is "just don't engage lmao"

                a good punishment is losing all your souls.a bad punishment is making it tiresome to spawn the boss again each time you die. the game already has a punishment in place anyway: losing some money.

                Terraria's combat is dull and janky in the sense that things like flight, and intricate or light changes movement, are really difficult to do. Precise dodges are hard to do, and it doesn't help that most of Terraria's projectiles blend in with a fuckton of the backgrounds.
                The combat is also dull in the sense of healing, bosses are more just a test of endurance than memorizing any sort of patterns. They encourage the use of the nurse (hence why you can heal with her via coins in a piggybank) and also that its very cheap to do so.
                Bosses are also expensive to fight, worm food can be an annoying grind if you dont have the rotten chunks and vile powder to make it. Mechanical bosses can be expensive if you keep dying over and over.
                Still, love me some Terraria. I've become VERY used to all the bosses and can handle them all fine on my own, but from the perspective of a lot of new players? Yeah, I can understand why they don't like the combat. I agree with their sentiments, and I've been playing since launch day and docked over 2k hours

                3D planes are much easier to fight in because you have more choice in where to move and run. Attacks aren't any easier or harder to dodge from this change, but you have more choice with the direction you're going. In a 2D space? You might just have a wall to your left and right. But in 3D? You have all 360 degrees of direction around you to go in, you have that agency and choice of where to kite.

                And what the fuck is this "wall" argument? You realize walls are one of the BIGGEST fucking problems with Terraria's bosses?
                Its why every single boss just flies, digs, or phases through terrain. There's no strategy to how you approach most bosses, its just kiting and retreating. There's no ebb and flow to a fight. Bosses just always FLY towards you.

                Yeah stuff like boss summoning won't be problematic. They'll be a lot tougher and actually revolve around patterns and as well, so its a good trade-off and bosses feel more memorable.

                >precise dodging is hard in Terraria
                Stop spamming dashes and l2fly, shitter. Terraria has been a bullet hell since release.
                >The combat is also dull in the sense of healing, bosses are more just a test of endurance than memorizing any sort of patterns.
                Actually bad and zero pattern recognition to speak of.
                >le farming for boss mats
                Oh no, you spend 10 minutes gathering materials and then get 5+ attempts to fight a boss.
                Potions are also painfully easy to start mass producing, there's a slow startup that snowballs insanely hard, insanely fast, so there's basically never any downside to failing a boss unless you're a lazy gay who never went to farm mats in a crafting game once.
                >in a 2D space? You might just have a wall to your left and right. But in 3D? You have all 360 degrees of direction around you to go in, you have that agency and choice of where to kite.
                It's called "clearing out a space to fight a large enemy".
                I know, why would anyone make something that intuitive? You should just be able to fight an enemy 20 times your size by standing still and hopping 3 feet to the side with .9 seconds of i-frames each hop, amirite? You know, even though it's a crafting game, I feel like the game should just make the arena for me!

                The second guy you responded to is someone else.
                But anyways.

                I understand all these points already. I've played the game since release COUNTLESS times.
                But just because "Its always been that way" doesn't mean its a good system. People tolerate it, but that doesn't excuse a lot of the poor execution.

                Bosses don't really HAVE patterns in Terraria, they just have set attacks that point towards you and fire repeatedly (i.e Wall of Flesh lasers at low HP)
                The latter of which can be really frustrating on Expert Mode. Having to make a long-ass bridge and dig through everything is really frustrating.
                Is it bad to build an arena for bosses? No.
                But should it be so practically-mandatory as it is? Absolutely not. There's a lot of ways Terraria could have handled these bosses better, or made natural arenas built into the world generation.
                Terraria is guilty of a lot of these instances that COMPLETELY kill the pace, forcing you to stop and do something. Some of these instances include;
                >Stopping to build an arena
                >Stopping to build NPC housing
                >Goblin/Pirate invasions
                >Stopping to cleanse world-evils from spreading
                >Stopping to farm Truffle Worms for Duke Fishron (The fact they run away so quickly is criminal)
                >Angler quests only once a day
                >Die to Moonlord and have to do the entire Pillar Events again (Or cough up your pillar materials for more boss-summons, then consequently lack material for making your armor after beating him)
                And a bunch of smaller instances.
                Just because something takes a "small amount of time", doesn't mean its a good system.

                I don't actually expect you to argue these points though. Your whole demeanor just seems hellbent on calling people shitters instead of actually debating the game-design.

                Angler quests would suck if you had the ability to grind them all out at the same time because that's what you would end up doing every time, just grind fishing quests for an hour. Maybe there could be a little quest bank though, like you can save up 2 or 3 quests and do them all at the same time (as in without even going to angler in-between).

                not that anon but I really disagree. Terraria is a game about every constituent component of it, especially construction. Working construction into the combat by making you build arenas is something I really appreciate about the game, and it makes the impact you have on the world feel very real, especially as you may see these arenas later eg the classic hellbridge. fishing is an important part to, but it is a fucking awful grind and could definitely be implemented differently to be more enjoyable, or you can simply ignore that mechanic if you want and suffer none for it. Duke fishron too, he's optional, its something you go out of your way to do for a challenge or because you had some truffle worms from your general exploring.
                I do agree on cleansing world evils, but mainly because theres not really an easy or engaging way to do it, and the huge timer it feels like looms over you during hardmode sucks a lot of the fun of going at your OWN pace out of the game for me.
                I think the main problem is anon that you're looking at the game as a checklist, when really its more about taking what comes and doing what you have to do to make something work. I generally prefer playing on the classic difficulty because the higher you go, the more prep and farming is required, and while that creates a more engaging challenge I think the game shines as a more relaxed experience.

                Stop being bad, vanilla moon lord has so many attacks that are telegraphed and give you plenty of time to dodge them, and no, before you say it, RoD is NOT necessary for the boss, at all.
                >Just because something takes a "small amount of time", doesn't mean its a good system.
                You are playing a crafting game, if you are bitching about having to spend time doing something in a crafting game you are braindead, which is obviously demonstrable because you can't stop whining about the game not playing itself for you by the fact that "the arenas aren't already pre-made!1!!!!!" Might as well start crying about how you aren't just given a "kill button" to bypass boss fights.
                >I don't actually expect you to argue these points though. Your whole demeanor just seems hellbent on calling people shitters instead of actually debating the game-design.
                Because you are a shitter and want the game to hold your hand when the whole premise of a crafting game is the fact you design the world how you want.
                Anyway, since you hate having to actually play a game I feel like movieshit is more your speed, why don't you go pick up a PS5 or something instead?

                I basically never go for any of the typical 3 early game ores, only using armor from enemy drops or just getting Shadow Scale, Obsidian, etc.
                I somewhat agree with most of your other points though.

                Most of the early ores are straight up skippable, making equipment out of it is also a waste of resources so I just go for some iron/lead pickaxe and then gold/platinum pickaxe. I tried recently to experiment with fishing in the ocean to get a Reaver Shark but that was significantly slower than just digging up platinum, it takes too long for fishing to gain momentum.

                Well thats the issue of it. You miss this tedium on earlier playthroughs because its fun the first few times. But then you start to notice the glaring flaws with some of the grinding halts the game has.
                Its why I value a lot of the skips Terraria has when you're knowledgeable of them.
                >Get bombs
                >Rush to evil biome
                >Get musket/undertaker
                >Spawn meteorite
                >Bomb/TNT meteorite
                >Instant Meteor Armor
                >Clear EoC and EoW quickly
                Skips a lot of the INCREDIBLY slow digging of earlygame. I feel for a lot of the Reaver Shark people, I never used that specific skip but I appreciated Terraria providing the option.
                It contributes to that aforementioned "Open-ended decisionmaking" of sandbox games.

                Re-logic has made so many questionable decisions with Terraria, I just wish they focused on making some of the current progression better instead of breaking old systems.
                But it's fine, its good to learn from.

                The Reaver Shark nerf was pretty justified even though I liked using it but now it's just kind of useless, by the time you get it you're extremely likely to have surpassed it and it's nothing more than vendor trash. Should've been at least Corruption/Crimson tier.
                I seriously do not understand what they were thinking about the meteor armor nerf. The Eater of Worlds is a multi-segmented worm, the Brain of Cthulhu uses a lot of Creepers to defend itself with in the first phase, the space gun works excellently against both of them because it pierces somewhat, but suddenly that's a bad thing and it gets locked behind beating those bosses and at that point you can only use it effectively in the Dungeon and maybe against Skeletron if you aren't opting for the minishark. And then the next update they allow exploding it again but only in hardmode when there's almost no real use and you're likely well-equipped at that point to handle meteorite. What intern did they leave in charge of this?

                I agree with a lot of your points
                its kinda like skyrim you just have to take long ass breaks between playing so you get that juicy full playthrough without the tedium being super obvious

                Well it does help that Skyrim isn't very good in the first place, it's more of a powertrip simulator, getting really strong stuff pretty easily and becoming the super special chosen one and leading 3 different factions at the same time and being favored by a dozen different daedric princes and turning around the civil war and shouting people around.

                I really dislike that they're removing these skips. Stuff like this is GOOD game design they're removing. And there's genuinely no reason to remove them, new players aren't going to recognize these availabilities their first time around

                >Oooooh, okay now I can mine this
                Same goes for the Reaver Shark.
                Those skips served exclusively for people replaying the game and wanting to manipulate their playthroughs in new ways and cutting out the grind.
                Its equivalent to the Master Key in Dark Souls 1, or the many skips in the Metroid series. These open up the playthrough for you immediately and you jump RIGHT into that momentum without having to slog through the beginning.

                Its unironically why I'm chasing making my own spin on it. I said it before, while I love Re-logic and Terraria, what they did was truly lightning in a bottle, and their lack of understanding is catching up to them.
                They should leave Terraria where it is right now before it gets any worse.
                Terraria 2 won't really break any new ground either, and I guarantee you they're gonna have a lot of bad design choices.
                Namely their big fixation on "Maintaining world purity" like how we saw in Terraria Otherworld (With that awful tower-defense mechanic.)

                I fully predict Terraria 2 to sell decently, but fall flat on its face. It'll be competent, but nowhere near what made 1 so solid.
                It especially doesn't help with how they've completely neglected giving 1 any identity, setting, or conclusion. The Moon Lord just sort of "shows up" then "disappears". And that's all we'll ever get.

                Oh no, you spend 10 minutes gathering materials and then get 5+ attempts to fight a boss.
                Potions are also painfully easy to start mass producing, there's a slow startup that snowballs insanely hard, insanely fast, so there's basically never any downside to failing a boss unless you're a lazy gay who never went to farm mats in a crafting game once.

                It's called "clearing out a space to fight a large enemy".
                I know, why would anyone make something that intuitive? You should just be able to fight an enemy 20 times your size by standing still and hopping 3 feet to the side with .9 seconds of i-frames each hop, amirite? You know, even though it's a crafting game, I feel like the game should just make the arena for me!

                Building arenas is one of the best concepts in terraria, the implementation is kinda janky since building is kinda annoying, but if the game had a more comfortable/free building system then it would be great
                Arenas incorporate the building mechanics of the game into the boss battles
                By removing arenas you are also making building much less useful

        The thing is the enemies in Terraria are all just more of the same, reskinned.
        Same corruptors as prehardmode,
        Reskinned jungle vine monster,
        Reskinned jungle hornet,
        Reskinned worm boss, etc.
        The only reasonably different enemies I can think of are in underground hallow since they have teleportation.
        The boss rush of all the bosses you've already seen with enemies that just try to collide with you since they have no real attacks just isn't that interesting.
        I don't even consider hardmode as harder, just tedious retreading of all those caves you already explored before, and then a boss rush.
        There is nothing more to find, and you only do it to become more powerful to beat...the same simple mobs you already fought thousands of times.
        While building gets even more block variety, exploration and crafting take a nosedive since the weapons you want are from boss drops and loot crates anyway.
        Overall I consider it a worse step for the game overall, but if you enjoy numbers going up and all your prehardmode weapons being literal garbage, then good for you I guess.
        Even most of the wall of flesh drops themselves are complete shit basically 5 seconds after beating him.

          Yeah I recognize all of that. I understand the pitfalls Terraria has with hardmode, but thats because it drops literally all the enemies on you for the rest of the game that you'll be seeing. Which is pretty easily avoidable.

          The only reason Terraria struggles with that so much, is Hardmode is something most people experience AFTER they've explored the core areas of the world. (Ocean, Jungle, Tundra, Corruption/Crimson, Hell)
          Terraria doesn't have infinite worlds or progression that REALLY requires more exploration after you hit hardmode, so they're pretty much forced to drop all the enemies on you at once, so you can't just easily mine all the new good ore without a challenge.

          The solution really is just bigger "worlds" and staggered enemy progression. Lastly just placing a big progression point like Hardmode into a spot deserving of it.

      • 2 months ago

        the trick with hardmode is that you have to make the player feel like they're also getting stronger
        what so many games don't get right, is that in terraria this is done not only through bigger damage numbers, but also through weapons getting more speed, range and area, and mobility options and accessory passives getting crazier and crazier, I can't think of a single other game that delivers this feeling of starting as a peasant and ending the game as a god so well

      The modder intentionally rushed porting to 1.4 to get the first piece of the pie, and in the process cut a significant amount of content. Thorium is only good for multiplayer but at least they're taking their time to port it after making some major update. The day it surpasses Magic Storage in ranking is the day it proves that moving to Workshop was a mistake, if the number of low-quality mods with no proper descriptions cluttering the "most recent" category doesn't already prove that.

      They're fine as "Ranegd but with mana" because it allows them to have all sorts of crazy shit that wouldn't make sense to be a ranged weapon, plus it's self-sustainable in combat thanks to mana drops compared to ranged that has to prepare beforehand and is limited by the rsources you have
      The issue people have is that they don't realize that ranged is "too strong" only when a lot of time is spent accumulating ammunition, something that does happen naturally given the nature of the game but isn't otherwise mentioned. Basically, they're all playing optimally without knowing it, and then they complain about it

      Mages get infinite mana and significantly stronger weapons but increasingly lower damage the longer they cast their spells, which dissipates if the mage doesn't use magic for a while. Mage armor either increases the time it takes for the damage to get lower or lowers the limit on how much damage is reduced, down to about -20%/-30% with some higher-end gear. Mana potions retain their cooldown but instead of granting mana they grant "mana surge" for a short period of time depending on the potion grade that dispels the damage debuff and lets you cast at full power without ramping debuffs while it lasts.

          Would I cry to see it gone, no, but I find it far from system-ruining

            You can tolerate it, but it does not make magic better. Mana potions themselves are fine but mana sickness is not fun.

      • 2 months ago
        Anonymous

        It has too much number bloat, the modder is autistic, the bosses are le epic budget bullet hell OC donut steel and it doesn't play nicely with other mods. The teenagers who grew up playing this mod now love the shit out of it because they have no standards or think good music = good mod.
        [...]
        The modder intentionally rushed porting to 1.4 to get the first piece of the pie, and in the process cut a significant amount of content. Thorium is only good for multiplayer but at least they're taking their time to port it after making some major update. The day it surpasses Magic Storage in ranking is the day it proves that moving to Workshop was a mistake, if the number of low-quality mods with no proper descriptions cluttering the "most recent" category doesn't already prove that.

        Pretty much explains it's problems back in 1.3, dunno if the same problems are in 1.4 because i'm still in pre-hardmode but so far it still feels the same.
        Most of the bosses are just recolored vanilla bosses, can't play with other mods because calamity always overshadows everything, it's good but it wouldn't call is the best mod out there.

      Secrets of the Shadows has some really kino moments but it's also kind of a pain in the ass, especially with some of the bosses and constructs. Some of the """pre-hardmode bosses""" have significantly more health and are more challenging to fight than regular vanilla bosses, like Pharaoh's Curse having a total of 15000 health on Master and The Advisor having more than 20k on top of having enough armor to make the minishark useless, both the bosses and the constructs are overtuned for how early they're supposed to be fought. The constructs also tend to appear out of nowhere and it takes a pretty long time to get the item that blocks them from spawning naturally, and while the crafting is comprehensive it's not very satisfying because it regularly loses some of the effects of the items that go into crafting another item. I am not sure if it is the Better Piercing mod that causes it but some items like the staff that throws a red ball of lightning and the sand storm book are monstrously overpowered. The mod also has a really bad problem with completely trivializing the economy, both constructs and treasure slimes drop a ton of gold coins and the latter spawn on a higher-than-normal frequency. Void armors also seem to be ignored after a while, I think the Cursed Mage set (after beating Pyramid's Curse) is the last armor set that actually interacts with Void, and it's pre-hardmode. Void just doesn't have much support in hardmode, crit-stacking takes the spotlight, and the accessory that gives health, mana and void back on every crit is way too good.
      With all that said it's a really, really good mod and it's been a long time since a mod managed to impress me with its design, the Pyramid was a blast to explore through even though I've yet to find an use for the Refracting Crystal, and the enemies are all really interesting to fight. Kind of makes me want to find a way to cleanse the Pyramid of its curse.
      Fuck this moron though (pic).

          I haven't tried the most recent update but DoG is usually the one getting the changes every update. At least from what I saw of the changelogs it seems like it'll probably be better than his last iteration.
          It's just obnoxious because a couple years ago they had probably the best iteration of his fight, but the dev is so autistic he just has to keep changing it for the sake of changing it. The vocal retards in the mod's community mentality is to just keep buffing shit because they're used to the boss, but as someone that's done numerous Death mode runs over the past couple years, it really just isn't a good fight most of the time when he changes it.

            Yea I've seen some of the Calamity community's discussions and complaints of DR, armor changes, stuff like that. Quality mod but needs a QA member to rein in the dev's changes maybe. Too many changes to a boss is terrible in the long run, the AI should be consistent and memorable

        I think the issue with post wall of flesh is that the game loses the comfiness, mainly because it starts to feel like a rush due to biome spread. I'm sure that's intentional, I'm sure thats the way it's meant to make you feel, but I just don't like that personally either.
        Also I feel like the game could incorporate building/construciton more into progression, eg building structures that fulfil conditions [similar to the housing system] to summon bosses

        the best you can do is start with plant armor(any of them) then skip straight up to biome gear, hope you get decent weapons/accessories along the way. Wasting time on Ore tiers is close to useless pre-hardmode. If you find ore along the way you craft whatever piece then change gear but don't expect to get a full gear of something until biome armor

          For the jungle that sucks with the current version, so just try to get the clentaminator ASAP. When 1.4.4 hits they're making it so the crimson and corruption don't destroy mud blocks by turning them into dirt, they'll have corrupt/crimson mud blocks now when the update drops, so you can just convert them back into jungle with green solution.

      >I got that achievement way before the Kite one and the Graveyard one
      you'll get that one eventually, obviously, if you only played the game on 1 world and 1 character then yeah, you aren't going to get it any time soon

    >also do expert mode, way harder at first but the extra expert-only accessories make it way cooler
    >1.4 comes out
    >start a new playthrough with friends
    >we have a dedicated builder, a dedicated fisher, everyone just chilling and doing things at their own pace
    There's just something fucking magical about this game bros, it's a special kind of spark that keeps bringing us back.

    Why the fuck are Thorium and Spirit not finished for 1.4 yet?

      Large world size already feels good enough

        The only reason I can think of for bigger worlds than large is if they can create some sort of meaningful, uniquely themed biome

        Nah large worlds feel cramped and too procedural.

          They don't unless you're an autist who just wants to make extremely large builds

      What difficulty

      • 2 months ago

        Whatever the easiest difficulty you can fight them on is? It was like a year ago now. Whatever the mode after you beat the hell wall is. I think I decked myself out in the best gear you can get before the mech bosses but it was just too hard and I got tired of farming for mats to start the bosses.

          That’s not a difficulty that’s the mode the world is in, your difficulty is shown on the world select screen.

      If you're really being serious about this, just get it on PC. It has controller support by default and you can mod it.
      If you're worried about it running poorly, don't be. If you've got a halfway-decent PC you should be fine.
