Many reviewers (ourselves included) have called Terraria “2D Minecraft,” only to risk an outpouring of rage from the game’s legion of internet fans. Still, the game has plenty in common with Minecraft: the sandbox world; the pickaxe; the crafting. The two games share another similarity: they’re both super-fun to mod. Below follows our list of the top 10 Terraria mods.
1. Terra Firma (Map Tool)
We’ll start with some more utilitarian options. Terraria is generally a game that involves exploring, but if you can’t be bothered to explore with your character, this mod enables you to pan and zoom around the map to your heart’s content. You can also export it into its own window — a great way to get a full sense of your world.
2. Rom Terraria v2.0
This extensive mod adds things like a minimap, a real-time clock, and weather effects to the game, along with a long list of other changes. One aspect of the modification provides you with the power to “enable infinite blood moon,” which sounds totally bad-ass.
3. Terraria Inventory Editor
Tired of getting all the items you need the old-fashioned way? This inventory editor will enable you to just summon whatever you need right into your inventory. It’s cheating, but hey — it’s easy.
4. Terraria Server Browser
Made by the same people who made the Inventory Editor above, this Server Browser makes finding the right multiplayer game as easy as falling off a long. This stands in stark contrast to the way Terraria multiplayer works without it. Save yourself a headache and download this.
5. TNT Cannon
One fun way to spice up a game about carefully exploring and constructing in a pixelated open world is to give yourself unparalleled, inexhaustible destructive power. The TNT Cannon certainly does that, turning an otherwise staid round of Terraria into an orgy of explosions.
6. Constant Goblins
Terraria has sporadic Goblin invasions to keep things interesting, but if you’d rather have them come for you every day, use this mod. To make it work, you’ll have to start the program with the command line “terraria_modded -moargoblins”.
7. Mob Spawner
If Goblins aren’t particularly your thing, you can use the mod below, allowing yourself to spawn any kind of mob into the game with the simple click of a button. The evil tentacles pictured above will be tempting, but you’ll want to try out all your options.
8-10. Sprite Skins
Enterprising modders have figured out how to customize the player character sprites in Terraria. That means you can tool around the gameworld in the form of:
And, last but not least:
Bonus 1. Terraria Mac Wrapper
Unable to play Terraria on your Mac? There’s a mod for that. This Mac Wrapper will allow you to run your PC version of Terraria on a Mac.
Bonus 2: Obsidian’s Mod
This hefty mod adds items, NPCs, and even events to the game. The concept wasn’t to make overpowered items, but rather to add some variety and new mechanics. Monsters are randomized, with additional varieties of each monster; a dozen new NPCs and three new bosses are added; and two brand new invasion events will have you hating hornets and fearing bunnies.
Bonus 3: Omnir’s Modpacks
This collection of mods adds in roughly 100 new creatures, which are mostly based on monsters from the online game Tibia or from Final Fantasy 1, 13 new armors sets, and 15 vanity outfits, as well as many weapons and other items.
Bonus 4: TEdit – Terraria Map Editor
Elegant in its simplicity of concept, this program servers as a stand alone, open source map editor for Terraria. The interface is straightforward, with a feel similar to MS Paint.
Bonus 5: TEdit – Terraria Map Editor
Here’s a mod that adds four new bosses, one new armor, new weapons that include claws, scythes, greatswords, and scimitars, a capture the flag game mode, hallowed Ore for new weapons, bricks and brick walls, as well as accessories and vanity items.
