Terraria Update Released

Posted: 23 May 2011 11:17 AM PDT

Updates to Terraria have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The major changes include:

Controls

  • Right clicking and holding on a crafting recipe will craft multiple of the same item to a max of the stack and/or until you run out of materials.

Items

  • NEW ITEM : Sticky Bombs, Requires 5 Gel and a Bomb.
  • Sand Duping bug fixed.
  • Placing a bed far from the spawn no longer causes a player who has set their spawn there to crash on join.
  • Mining stone and other hard ores make a ’tink’ noise now.
  • Hellstone and Obsidian now require at least a Demonite pick to gather.
  • Sand no longer spawns within a certain distance of the spawn location, This should remove the chance of spawning in a desert with no wood to use.
  • Hellstone now correctly takes as long to dig as meteor does.
  • The clay pot item now has the correct size.

Performance

  • Frame-skip is now correctly ON by default for new players.
  • Increased Client Side Multiplayer stability. Should resolve many crash causes.
  • Corrected a bug where players would intermittently not take falling damage.
  • The world file is now saved to a temporary file that is copied over to the actual save file. This prevents world corruption when saving is interrupted.
  • Fixed a bug that disabled some error handling. Overall game stability should be improved.

GUI

  • The version number of the game now shows on the title screen.
  • Typing numbers in chat no longer changes your selected item in your hotbar.

Server

  • Servers now listen to all IP addresses on the hosting PC, regardless of how many network connections are active.
  • Typing "localhost" instead of your own local IP address will connect to your own same-PC server.
  • The games default port is no longer ELEET (31337) it is now 7777.
  • Client will now resolve a hostname into its IP address, for example, if randomsite.org ran a server, you could type randomsite.org as the IP address and be able to connect.

Nation Red Update Released

Posted: 23 May 2011 11:11 AM PDT

Updates to Nation Red have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The major changes include:

  • New single player, coop and local coop map: Oil Platform
  • Improved coop performance and syncing. Projectile fire from bosses and damage from zombies in coop is more accurate.
  • Added in-game text chat. Press ’t’ to bring up the text console. You can re-bind this key in the options menu. Possible to cross chat from the lobby to players in-game.
  • 7 new coop-only achievements
  • Simplified controller menu navigation to be the same across all game menus and fixed controller related issues.
  • Upgraded the Machete and Baseball zombie to slower but stronger runners.
  • Tweaked gameplay so that fewer bosses appear simultaneously in the first 20 minutes of gameplay while keeping a similar difficulty curve
  • Tweaked ghost stacking perks: Strike Team will deal more damage than Fire Team (even to bosses) so the upgrading path makes sense
  • Add support for NoReload and Rage Unlimited to the MGL
  • Increased the maximum number of perks in Strategic Mode to 20
  • Tweaked Auto-Perk mode so the game auto-selects perks better
  • Further tweak boss armor: Increase armor a little slower and create more automatic adjustment in boss armor for 2,3 or 4 player games (so armor is a bit less with 2 players than with more players)
  • Check ’in-game’ notification in Steam lobbies. Doesn’t always correctly display the status.
  • Snare in coop games is tweaked: The more players there are, the closer you need to get to an item to ’snare’ it. This prevents one player from grabbing too many items.
  • In coop games, health won’t be picked up by a player who already has 100% health
  • Players won’t be able to pick up the same weapon they are already using. This will help other players to pick these up.
  • Fixed the ’Bouncer’ achievement not triggering correctly
  • Fix not able to see Powerup status/countdown bars later on in certain games
  • Fix an issue where controllers need ’re-enabling’ when restarting/ALT-Tabbing away from the game.
  • Reduce cool down time for sentry guns after they overheat.
  • Fix an issue where players start too close to each-other in coop games.
  • Made local coop game menu setup the same as on-line coop.
