Terrarium

I sank over a hundred hours into Terraria back when it was fairly new, before it died its untimely death and then undied again.

Now that Starbound is out (and honestly kind of meh) I was curious as to what was up with Terraria these days.  Here's part of the changelog for the recent release of version 1.3.1:
  • Added Logic Gates (AND, NAND, OR, NOR, XOR, NXOR)
  • Added Logic Gate Lamps (On, Off, Faulty)
  • Added Logic Sensors (Day, Night, Under Player)
  • Added Liquid Sensors (Water, Lava, Honey, Any)
  • Added Conveyor Belts.
  • Added The Grand Design.
  • Added Yellow Wrench.
  • Added Junction Box.
  • Added Mechanical Lens.
  • Added Announcement Box.
  • Added Actuation Rod.
  • Added Team Blocks and Platforms.
  • Added Static Hook.
  • Added Presserator.
  • Added Engineering Helmet.
  • Added Companion Cube.
  • Added Gem Locks.
  • Added Large Amber.
  • Added Weighted Pressure Plates (4 colors).
  • Added Wire Bulb.
  • Added 12 new craftable Critter Statues.
  • Added Portal Gun Station.
  • Added Trapped Chests.
  • Added Projectile Pressure Pad.
  • Added several new monster statues.
  • Added Angler Tackle Bag.
  • Added Geyser Trap.
  • Added Bone Campfire.
  • Added Ultra Bright Campfire.
  • Added Multicolor Wrench.
Might need to fire it up again...

Update: Starbound gets better.  In Terraria, you spend most of your time on a single world, defending it from various menaces.  In Starbound, things don't really get into gear until you get off your starting planet.  Unlike Terraria, where you have to build (or rebuild) everything yourself, there's a functioning civilisation in Starbound.  You just need to find it.

1 Sadly, Terraria got rid of infinite houses in 1.3, which I'd never heard of before today while I was looking something else up.

2 I hadn't heard of that one before either.  But it's a pretty blatant bug, and might have had other side effects, so I'm not surprised they patched it.

3 I gather--if the forum posts I read were correct--that it, along with the "NPCs can now defend themselves" created situations where you could turn goblin invasions into AFK meat grinders.

4 Hi Pixie!

I want to shut my blog down and have it wiped. Could you send me an e-mail about this?  Thanks.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
