1.3.1 might not be the largest Terraria patch but it does seem loaded with some interesting stuff like full controller support, more wires and now a companion cube pet. It's also pretty nice that it's easy to get from a Merchant instead of some intense mob farming.

Interesting. It looks cool and has a cool death scream. Another thing I found interesting, that I didn't know about, was that there are mob-only activated pressure plates. That could come in handy. Honestly, I don't think this new update fits my kind of Terraria gaming. I'm not much of a builder. I imagine that Travis could probably make something really cool with these new tools. Who knows when it will be, but I'm still looking forward to another CG Terraria server. I think we should do it at least once more, if for nothing else than for completion of Expert Mode, which I don't hardly dare try alone.

The mob only pressure plates could make arena building much nicer!

This update came out two days ago, anyone play yet?

Not yet!

Oh and in case you're hoping to snag the new Companion Cube, you're going to have to dish out 5 platinum for it!

Money is so plentiful these days, that doesn't seem too crazy anymore.

Yeah, agreed. That's a couple higher level boss runs.

Me and Vinny have been playing on a new Expert world for the last two days. I don't know exactly how much he has, but I think it's less than one platinum where as I have about just less than two platinum coins. We have defeated King Slime twice and we did finally beat the Eye of Cthulhu after I used TEdit to copy over the boss arenas from our last CG Expert World. Maybe I see the price of the new pet as expensive because we're still a bit early in the game. Five platinum coins just for a pet just seems a bit ridiculous.

Early on it is really high priced for sure. But once you have one, you can carry it over to new worlds. I don't think it's cheating to start with a cosmetic pet or whatnot. smile

Good point. Vinny knows how to cheat in Terraria and I basically told him "no cheating" in our playthrough. A cosmetic pet, sure that's fine, but everything else I'd like for us to obtain by playing. However, one could say we're "cheating" by using TShock and I've "cheated" by using TEdit to put in those arenas. After doing that, I thought about writing up a quick post about both of those programs. I know Travis is more familiar with them than I am, but I've found them both surprisingly easy to use!

Yeah they're both very simple.
