If you've been crossing your fingers and hoping for Terraria Steam Workshop support, then hope no longer. The latest Terraria update adds support for that very feature, plus some additional customization options and a whole host of bug fixes.
What's new in this latest Terraria update?
Starting from today, you'll be able to upload your creations to Terraria via the Steam Workshop. You can upload worlds you've created, as well as custom resource packs, music tracks, and new languages, among other things. New customization options have also been added in the form of World uploads and Resource Packs, which allow you to show off worlds you've created, as well as music, textures, or language translations you've made. Now, when users upload Terraria mods, other users will be able to see and download it via the Steam Workshop. Features you can add to the Workshop page for your content include a description, a dedicated forum to discuss the content, and changelog pages for each update, plus plenty more.
If you want to access the Terraria Steam Workshop, you can do so simply by heading to the game's Steam page in your library, then clicking Community Hub. From there, you'll see an option labeled "Workshop". You'll find a special section there headed "Developer's Choice", where the Terraria devs curate Workshop content they think is head and shoulders above the rest. At the moment, you'll find a couple of Resource Packs there created by Terraria artists Jimmarn and Lazure, but there will be more stuff there over time. If you want to know how to get started with the Terraria Steam Workshop, take a look at the Steam announcement, where the devs have included a handy starter guide.
Is there anything else in the new update?
As well as Steam Workshop support and the new creative features, this new Terraria update also squashes a bunch of bugs. An issue involving Rolling Cacti spawning on Demon Altars and crashing the game has been fixed, as has one in which falling coins could not land atop other coins. As is always the case with updates like this, there are a bunch of bug fixes, so again, be sure to read the changelog to see if your particular bugbear has been defeated.
If you're a PC player, you can check out the new Terraria update right now. The devs recommend you check out user Leinfors' guide to creating content for Terraria if you're stuck, and if you want to take a look at it later, it'll be linked at the top of the Terraria Steam Workshop page. Make sure to go check out the update if you're hoping to see the best of what the Terraria community has to offer!
