Main WIP Thread (lots of back-history):

Replaced all mod install.exe files with their .obj files for increased flexibility. You'll need to place the mods into your ModPacks folder manually now.
Updated the installation instructions.txt.
Updated Game Launcher to the latest version (Terraria 1.2.2). NOTE: WHEN TERRARIA UPDATES YOU WILL NEED TO GET THE LATEST GAME LAUNCHER TO GET TCONFIG MODS TO WORK AGAIN. Find the latest here: http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/game-launcher-3-0.98965/
Removed Yorai's Server-side mod from optional downloads to avoid confusion. Auto-save Players mod and Grable's Recipe Book mod are the two most recommended optional mods to use.
Updated Game Launcher to the latest version. NOTE: IF TERRARIA UPDATES YOU WILL NEED TO GET THE LATEST GAME LAUNCHER TO GET TCONFIG MODS TO WORK AGAIN.
Find the latest here: http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/game-launcher-3-0.98965/
Updated installation instructions and included the latest Game Launcher and tConfig. Game Launcher and tConfig are now much easier to install thanks to Eikester.
To get tConfig mods working after the Terraria 22.214.171.124 (Halloween) update, simply install the latest Game Launcher included in this download folder.
For new installs, follow the instructions in the _Game Install Instructions.txt.
Updated installation instructions (1.1q instructions missed a step that will cause an error when installing tConfig).
Added Ring of Clarity, made from the Poisonbite and Bloodbite Rings and 30k Dark Souls - it prevents confusion, gravitation, bleeding and poisoning, +4 life regen.
Reduced the Dark Souls cost of the entire Band of Cosmic Power upgrade path, initiated with the Band of Regeneration and Band of Starpower and 3k souls.
The Wyvern Mage now drops the Poisonbite and Bloodbite rings. It also summons Barrow Wights instead of Cursed Skulls.
The Dragon Horn and Dragoon Gear will now activate more easily (double damage when falling).
Made the Esuna Tome easier to craft (10k less souls, -2 guardian souls and no war elixirs.) It now needs: 1 Spell Tome,1 Guardian Soul,10 Healing Elixir,70000 Dark Soul
Reduced the health of the Twins by 5k each, reduced damage, and added 1k Dark Souls drop.
Dark Knights should no longer spawn in your village with NPCs nearby. I also reduced their firing speed.
Reduced spawning of Warlocks slightly.
Reduced Zombie Worm head damage.
Dungeon Mages now only spawn before HM.
Reduced the health of Serris' first form and increased it slightly for the second form.
The Crazed Purple Crush projectile no longer confuses (used by Fire Fiend Marilith and other enemies). Instead it poisons you, prevents regeneration, and cripples you for 10 seconds (reduced flight ability). :) Seems like a fair trade-off right? 2 of the debuffs have more than one counter though.
Increased the health of some mages.
Increased difficulty of Attraidies' first and second forms (health and damage boosts, plus some added debuffs). To compensate with the 2nd form, I also made the boss and boss minions teleport farther away from the player, reduced the Chaos spawns slightly and reduced the health of Disciple of Attraidies, which now drops 3 Healing Elixirs on death.
Necromancers, elementals and several other enemies are now immune to lava and can jump on lava.
Gazing Shield is easier to craft. This is a must for all melee warriors.
Added a tip for the Covenant of Artorias ring so its more clear that you need to remove the ring to escape the Abyss (perpetual blood moon).
Included the latest Game Launcher, which is necessary to install to use this mod and tConfig side-by-side with the latest Terarria 1.2 update made by Relogic.
Updated installation instructions for those installing tConfig for the first time (post 1.2) or for those who had installed tConfig before but have since updated to 1.2.
Please post any issues you have with installation in the main game thread: http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/adv-dark-souls-mod-the-story-of-red-cloud.87617/
The Witchking now drops the Covenant of Artorias (it can still be bought from the Shaman Elder and crafted too).
Increased the spawn rate of all Super Hardmode enemies, especially during bloodmoons (the Abyss) and at night.
Increased the difficulty slightly of several enemies and bosses.
Increased the spawn rate of several HM and pre HM enemies.
Made some rare enemies (mini-bosses) less hard and increased their spawn rate.
Added a note about the Bloodred Moss Clump so players know it is essential to hold on to to cure yourself of poisoning.
The Shaman Elder will now spawn sooner after defeating Attraidies, as long as one NPC is nearby and you haven't yet defeated the Witchking.
Increased soul cost of Supersonic Wings.
Decreased knockback on Unicorn and mummies.

Updated all mods to tConfig v35.3a. You will need to install the latest tConfig with this update.

Buffed Dworc Voodoomaster and Basalisk Walker slightly to compensate for their lower health and defense.
Reduced price of Forgotten Kaiser Knuckles and Forgotten Metal Knuckles (increased damage of the latter).
Most of Solaire's items are now cheaper to buy. He also sells throwing axes, which can be upgraded into a great melee weapon.
Increased the soul crafting cost of the extremely overpowered Celestriad. Craft this if you're ready to end the game in a very silly way.
Increased the mana used by Starfall to 800.
The Story of Red Cloud: Fixed a path that leads out of the new Meteorite Dungeon Slogra arena. It wasn't possible to go past before without the Shiny Red Balloon you get from the secret Earth temple. Now you can go this route with only the double jump ability. I also made the Skeletron arena a little less crazy with the skeleton summon statues. I improved the loot of a locked chest in the corruption temple and a couple other chests. Plus some other small things.
The Tinkerer's Workshop is now sold by the Archeologist as well as the Goblin Tinkerer.
Increased the health and damage of the Shadow Dragon.
Attraidies' final form also spawns the Shadow Dragon at various times.
3 vanilla enemy lasers have received a damage buff, which has increased the difficulty of the Wall of Flesh, The Twins, the Destroyer, and Skeletron Prime.
Mushrooms, Glowing Mushrooms and Goldfish no longer trigger potion sickness when used. (No more accidently eating one of these and dying because you meant to use a healing potion but one of these slipped into your inventory. :) To compensate, mushrooms and glowing mushrooms heal slightly less.
Bloodred Moss Clump now heals 25 HP.
Increased the difficulty of the Slogra and Gaibon boss fight.
Increased spawn chance of Tetsujin in the SHM meteorite biome and from 7-9/10ths width of the map in the sky (more at night, more during blood moons).
The Story of Red Cloud: Added a lot more housing under the village. Added the Tinkerer's Workshop to the village and in a couple other places. Added a couple more small shortcuts in the beginning area. Added a couple more torches to illuminate things you might not normally see depending on your lighting settings. Added a clue-sign in the Merchant's house. Finally decided to add a demon altar below the village.
Increased the length of time between teleporting for all mage-type enemies (a highly requested feature).

Slighly nerfed Dungeon Mage and Attraidies Illusion while increasing soul drops.

Ancient Golden armor helmet can be upgraded, with nice improvements to all stats.
Sandbox: Skeletron Prime aka Gravelord Nito now drops a set of Jungle armor plus an extra 500 dark souls.
Jungle Wyvern now drops a set of Necro armor plus 2000 more Dark Souls.
Fixed Hydris Necromancer despawning too quickly if you get too far away from him.
Added Shell Armor from Omnir's mod (remixed as a ranged upgrade to the Necro armor set). Yayyy..
Rebalanced Molten Armor set upgrades (melee and magic specialization). They are both now roughly equal but different, and more powerful. Both cost 9000 souls.
Added Ancient Dwarven Armor with an upgrade path both from Omnir's Mod. It's a custom melee set that you get from upgrading silver armor, +3 gold bars and 1500 souls.
Nerfed Old Double Axe swing speed.
Added Shadow Ninja set, a HM end-game tier set that is an upgrade of the Black Belt Gi set (needs 3 soul of fright and 40k souls). It also has a SHM upgrade.
Fixed Longinus and it's upgrade not doing double damage when falling. Though I reduced it to 1.5x damage in this update. Removed toolTip that says it randomly heals for now.
Removed 3 second "Curse" (can't use items) from Anti-Gravity Blast attack used by Attraidies and others.
Increased difficulty of Attraidies.
Slight nerf to Star Fall.
Slightly buffed Ancient Dragon Lance.
Added IcyPRO's Minilands v4 - Iced! to the Sandbox Edition Maps folder. This is IcyPRO's updated minilands map, which has many new enhancements. With only 2 demon altars and everything taking place on mini-islands, this should prove to be quite a unique challenge. :) Leave your impressions, comments and more here: http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/minilands-v4-iced.76761/ Goes without saying, a let's play of this map with the dark souls mod would be super cool to see.
Story of Red Cloud: Added gold bars to the first dungeon to craft the upgraded silver armor. Added 2 signs. Added a torch to make gold armor easier to find. Added small short-cut near town well.

Added 30 Regen potions to secret Hermes Boots location. Added more goodies to several other chests near the early game plus some other tweaks.

others when you discover them.

Fixed Blood Moons not occuring naturally (for real this time).

Check out Green Cat's thread for instructions on how to use his mod here: http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/green-cats-player-auto-saver.103145/ He
also has some other awesome mods you can discover in his signature.

Necromancer Elemental no longer drops Forgotten Ice Bow as I forgot I changed it to a end-game SHM weapon.

Added Yorai's MP-only Serverside Saving & Commands (SSS) mod to the Optional Mods Folder. Highly recommended for use with Multiplayer, in case of unexpected crashes or disconnects.
You can manually force a save with /save when needed, in addition to other great features.
Link to official mod thread here: http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/multiplayer-only-serverside-saving-commands.102254/
Added Anomaly0.01's amazing custom sandbox adventure map "Elfheim: An Exploration Map" to the Sandbox Maps folder. This is a MUST-PLAY with the Dark Souls (Sandbox Edition) mod turned on! It is truly a wonderful map with incredible art direction on-par with the style and quality of The Story of Red Cloud map (if no one minds me saying so). :) The map uses an open, no rules sand-box format and everything in the Dark Souls mod is accessible. Give it a try and share your impressions. A let's play of this map/mod combo would also be excellent. Go here to visit the map's official thread: http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/elfheim-an-exploration-map.102894/
Removed Map "Valley of Lord Gwyn" because it had become outdated compared to the changes made to Valley of Defilment and the updated version essentially provided a merged experience making this map obsolete.
To Yorai for the inclusion of his Serverside Saving & Commands (SSS) mod. Check out his other awesome mods via the link above.
To Anomaly0.01 for the inclusion of his amazing custom adventure map "Elfheim."

The Story of Red Cloud: Removed a wall near a heart just past the EoC arena. You can now access the shortcut.
The Story of Red Cloud MP: Fixed the above and added cloud in a bottle to the secret Earth temple. The map is still out-dated compared to 1.1f so I'm considering scrapping this. The SP map is pretty much compatible anyway.
I made it more clear that MiraiMai's Dual Wielding mod is Single-Player only.
Fixed Multiplayer soul duplication glitch when giving other players souls. Thanks Yorai!
Fixed Multiplayer bug that caused enemies to drop 2-3 sets of souls instead of 1. Thanks again to Yorai!
Fixed Dark Souls occasionally disappearing from your inventory when reloading your game (was due to some old code which has since been implemented into tConfig proper).

Added Recipe Book mod to the Optional Mods folder. Highly recommended for convenience.
Slogra (boss version) should always spawn Gaibon now.

Added "The End" game mode. A nice little treat after you beat the game. Just walk around the world to see. Killing Attraidies again will re-trigger SHM.
The sun and moon change while the portal to The Abyss is open (aka Super Hardmode). Thanks to Zoodletech for the sprites.

Red Cloud Map SP
Added 3 SP world files. You can use these so you can do a playthrough of the map with each class (ranged, melee, magic) at the same time. You
can also use it to try out a new map update without messing with your old save file. For instance, if you started a playthrough on 1.1e using
save file 1, when map 1.1f etc comes out you could use save file 2.
Re-implemented Temple of the Machine changes as the changes I made in 1.1d apparently got wiped somehow. :/

Fixed Solaire's shop (he sold too many things past the default 20).
The Dwarf now sells 6 weapons (previously sold by Solaire) after you defeat The Sorrow and The Destroyer.
Crystal Knights and Clowns' projectiles no longer destroy tiles.
Serris now drops a few things on defeat.
Boosted difficulty of Attraidies as it was reported he was too easy. My apologies. :)
Fixed tooltip that said Dragoon Gear/Boots isn't compatible with wings. They actually are. Just forgot to edit the tooltip after I changed
Fixed Poisonbite, Bloodbite, Poisonblood, Wolf and Gray Wolf Ring (wasn't applying buff immunities).
Reduced bonus souls dropped from Slogra (boss).
Dark Mirror has 50% chance to drop from Witchking.
Reduced crafting cost of Greater Magic Mirror and Village Mirror to a mirror and 100 souls.
Beholder Shield is now crafted using the Gazing Shield.
Fixed Warlock error message.
Made Voodoo dworc's more 'interesting' soul-drop wise.
Sandbox specific changes
Fixed the crafting requirements of hardmode bars of ore, the ivy whip, the Adamantite Forge and the Mana Flower.
Mana potions are slightly more expensive to buy from the Archaeologist.
Red Cloud SP Map
Fixed the Slogra boss arena exploit.
Added a Titanite sealed shortcut from the Great Chasm to the underworld and the Forgotten City. Useful if you want to go straight to hardmode
on a new map.
Altered the Temple of the Machine in a significant way. EDIT: This change did not save properly and I had to redo it for 1.1e.
Updated the mod to tConfig v35.0 with included exe.
Nerfed Ancient Demon, Dworc Voodoomaster, Basalisk Walker, Dunlending and Necromancer. Added Dworc Voodoo Shaman (Hardmode).
Fixed Crimson Potion which is sometimes dropped by Dunlending.
Reduced buy and sell price of the Piggy Bank and Safe, and adjusted value of other items for sale by NPCs.
All ammo has a max stack of 2000, by request.
Keep the feedback coming. Thanks!
Red Cloud Map SP
Added more housing for NPCs to the village (you can do this manually on a previous world using the wood in the tool house).
Added a 1 minute shortcut from Hell into the Volcano dungeon (accessible if you explored the Volcano dungeon previously). Note, this pathway is
still accessible in previous 1.1 releases, it's just a little less obvious).
Made several jumps in the first Earth temple easier and fixed a jump to a new room that was missing.
Added a new room near the village.
Added a couple blind drops near the 1st dungeon.
Added a secret discovery that allows level skipping near the corruption temple accessible from the early game, but it's going to take some
mountain exploring to find. ;)
Added a small shortcut from your save point near the 1st boss arena to the secret dungeon entrance, which has a demon altar.
Fixed issues caused by override problems. Nerfed 3 enemies and updated spawn conditions. Adjusted buy amounts for items sold by Solaire.
Reduced gold found in the Red Cloud map to compensate. Reduced the mod versions from six to four. MSD (Minus Soul Drop) and MP (Multiplayer)
are now the same version and labeled as such. Fixed missing item sold by Solaire. Added Yorai's Dual Wielding back in. Use Yorai's for an
easier difficulty and MiraiMai's for a harder difficulty.
Fixed some Sandbox mod stuff I overlooked that needed overrides. Also fixed a small bug that was causing The Story of Red Cloud mod to not
1.1 (MAJOR UPDATE)
Over 210 new items - about 120 from Omnir's mod, 30 from Blahblahbal's Avalon mod, a couple dozen from me and the rest from various places.
67+ new NPCs (!?!?) including 11 new bosses and 8 friendly NPCs.
Multiplayer version added. Yayy... It's still in Beta though so expect some bugs. You will likely want to disable any dual wielding mods as
issues have been reported with them. Also I'd recommend creating your MP server using the tConfig Server program that installs with tConfig,
rather than using the in-game method. Then you and the other players should join the server you created.
Updated the Mage AI code for several enemies so they no longer spawn in walls! Yayy...
Retired Yorai's Dual Wielding mod for various reasons (including it no longer works with the newest tConfig with no plans to be updated).
Added MiraiMai's Dual Wielding mod (formerly named Mainslot-0). MiraiMai's take on dual wielding allows you to right click to use the item in
but you can only right or only left click at the same time.
Retired the use of multiple difficulties (Easy, Hard and Evil).
Merged the Red Cloud mod and the Dark Souls "sandbox, digging allowed" version into a single mod, switchable in tConfig Settings.
Slight damage buff for all Cobalt, Mythril and Adamantite upgraded melee weapons.
Made all potions have max stacks of 100.
Slight nerf to Power NU Armor.
Buff to all spear-type weapons, with a nerf to the Ancient Dragon Lance.
Made drills and some vanilla items that are discovered in chests or dropped from bosses virtually uncraftable (in the story version). Also made
ore collected from gates unusable until you're able to reach the Western-most part of the world.
Fixed a very old 'bug' that prevented Ice and Bolt Tomes from applying damage bonuses.
Many refinements and tweaks, too numerous to count.
Please submit suggestions for changes here: http://bit.ly/180q4Sg
RED CLOUD MAP CHANGES
Added 1 new hidden mini-dungeon with boss arena in the desert and 2 secret biome areas in the Western part of the world. You'll need to
discover these areas to fight three of the secret post-Attraidies bosses.
Added a new boss arena in the Meteorite Dungeon with an alternate path.
Added a couple more signs with clues and tips.
Added more hidden chests with platinum coins and other goods.
Added an Adamantite Forge in the Western-most part of the world.
Made the Underground Desert dungeon a little harder.
Lots of other small things I can't remember now. ;)
Added a MP version of the map with double beds in all save points and double items when appropriate (but not everywhere). Occasional asymetric
gameplay is intentional. :)
DARK SOUL MAP CHANGES
Added two new Sandbox maps: Valley of Defilement and Valley of Lord Gwyn. These two maps are the same except Defilement will be noticably
'darker,' literally and figuratively, and also harder. ;)
These two maps are meant to be played with the Dark Souls: Sandbox Edition.
Added IcyPRO's Minilands Hardcore! Dark Souls Edition (His map plus more demon altars and some additional crafting items for playing with the
Dark Souls: Sandbox Edition mod).
To Wooren for re-spriting part of the Lord Gwyn boss and several items.
To Omnir for helping with coding issues and all the great new content used.
To the Avalon team for content and Blahblahbal for coding help.
To Flashkirby99 for content from his Weapons mod and eye glow code.
To Yorai as always for helping me out when I'm in a jam.
To Zero-Exodus for several sprites.
To Zoodletech for more content.
To Scooterboot and W1k for Serris boss.
To Whale Cancer for sprites.
To Ace the Best for some sprites.
To Sapharan for some content from the Legend of Sapharan mod.
To Heartstone25 for Covenant of Artorias blood moon code and help.
To Solenix for some Vertigo Elemental content.
To MiraiMai for the inclusion of the Dual Wielding mod (aka Mainslot-0).
To Grox the Great for coding help.
UPDATE: THIS VERSION HAS A TCONFIG BUG. DOWNLOAD VERSION 1.1 because this version is outdated anyway now.
The tconfig bug made the surface world have a hell background and hell enemies.
Got rid of the Super Easy difficulty mode and made the Easy difficulty not have souls drop on death. All enemies and bosses are easier than normal.
Made Wand of Frost require 100 crystal shards to craft.
Updated the mod to tConfig v29.9.
Added Red Cloud Hunter and adjusted spawn rate of Man Hunter and stats.
Added Barrow Wight, Dworc Fleshhunter, Dworc Venomsniper, and Dworc Voodoomaster enemies, plus Old Poisoned Dagger and Reforged Poisoned Dagger from Omnir's Mod.
Added 5 seconds to Wall Tome.
Removed Mana Flowers from game because the item is too OP.
Fixed lever and gate in secret dungeon connected to the Earth Temple. Added a sign indicating that the Eye can be fought in the secret dungeon. Made the secret dungeon harder, using traps. Made some jumps easier. Made secret Hermes Boots a little harder to get. Added simple but new biome area near jungle.
Updated all mods to tConfig v29.3. 3 New Difficulty Modes for the Red Cloud and Dark Souls (digging allowed) versions. Normal, Hard and Evil D all have "No souls drop on death" variations, with everything else staying the same. All of the difficulty modes are now contained within a single mod, respectively (thanks to Surfpup for this tConfig feature).
To change your difficulty, go to tConfig Settings and click the mod name to cycle through the different options and click reload mods when you get to the difficulty you want to use.
I changed the final surprise boss fight drop (boss credit: Draykon) with some difficulty tweaks (and charge attack) so the boss fight should feel fresh. If you can manage to beat it, it drops a pretty sweet item (although it only works to its full potential if you switch to the Dark Souls digging allowed version of the mod).
I made a fairly significant re-balancing and tweaking of the final boss, Attraidies. The difficulty overall has been increased on all difficulties, while the boss now has 2 extra random summons that will add more dynamic unpredictability to each fight. Harder difficulties drop more souls (a feature unique to the last fight). And, thanks to Yorai's help, the boss now automatically plays the correct boss music (a nod to the final fight in Ocarina of Time, for those keeping score).
One other bit of trivia: this fight was inspired by the Four Kings in Dark Souls. So keeping Attraidies' summoned illusions under control will be key to winning this fight. Hope you enjoy the changes. Let me know how it goes! One thing I recommend for fun: when you summon the boss, try jumping off the platform and fighting him mid-air and then all over the map, to the East or West. It makes for a pretty epic battle!
MORE MOD CHANGES
Much needed nerf to Bolt Tome 4 via increased mana cost. Only Mage-focused classes will be able to wield it.
Healing Elixir now heals confused debuff.
Seath (aka Skeletron) is now harder on Normal through Evil modes.
Fixed Miakoda and R2D2 pet bug errors that occured with newer tConfig versions.
Undead Caster (the dreaded mage in the 1st dungeon) now spawns slightly less, gives 5 more souls, has a rare chance to drop either the Wand of Fire or Wand of Darkness, and has slightly less health and knockback.
Added Omnir's dash attack to the Krakken (Water Fiend Spirit).
The two early game armors are slightly easier to craft (leather armor and red mage set).
The soul reaper is now easier to craft.
Buffed the damage of the Ultima Weapon and allowed the blade to turn when you turn while holding attack.
Made the Phoenix Down easier to craft (1 feather, 1 heart crystal, 100 dark souls).
Made Wand of Fire (early magic weapon) easier to craft.
Increased damage of Water Spirit Tome
Power Armor NU (end-game upgrade from Shadow Armor and 5 soul of Might) has been buffed with increased life regeneration and healing abilities etc, and the tool tip no longer keeps this armor's abilities a secret.
Removed Mana Flower skill from the Ankor Wat armor (end-game magic class).
Buffed the Muramassa and the Murassame
Beholder Shield reduces magic and ranged damage more plus greater mana cost
Removed Attraidies 3 second silence ability as it made it too difficult to beat him playing as a melee class (every boss should be defeatable with a melee focused class btw, using the melee shields).
Undead Caster has 1/10th chance to drop an "Attraidies Relic" which lets you summon a powerful foe that drops 500 souls. Item is consumed on use.
RED CLOUD MAP CHANGES
Added a secret alternate dungeon via a secret passageway in the Earth Temple. Allows level skip and offers unique rewards, but should prove to be a formidable challenge.
I added a full text walkthrough of the game on the main Terraria Online thread and the curse page.
Lots of small changes to what can be found in certain chests.
Buffed Wand of Fire, Wand of Darkness, Bolt Tome 1 & 2 and and Ice Tome 1 & 2.
Fixed the knockback issue on the Bolt Tomes and also reduced the knockback on skeletons and zombies.
Nerfed the Goblin Sorcerer.
Increased the difficulty of the Jungle Wyvern.
More polish on the 2nd dungeon (including opening up a new pathway and making the platforming in the beginning a little easier).
The early mountain platforming near the village has been made easier.
Added a hidden item (in a new area within the places accessable from the start) that will allow you to bypass the first dungeon entirely if you wish. But that also means heading into the 2nd dungeon vastly under-armed, so it should add another fun "choose your own adventure" type choice, while making all the hearts in the jungle more useful.
Added some of the items and armor you get from the village plus an orb of light into the beginning of the 1st dungeon so players can immediately dive into the 1st dungeon (skipping the village) if they so choose. (I'm also hoping this will make any future let's plays more dynamic to watch and less linear).
A heart was removed from the 1st and 2nd dungeon also so you might actually be able to use some of the hearts you find in the jungle. That will also make exploring the 2nd half of the corruption temple more useful.
I added a sign in the 2nd dungeon to make it clear the choice the player has (either exploring the 2nd half of the dungeon for the shadow armor, hearts and other treasure or heading to the jungle to the East).
Bumped up the difficulty of the jungle temple a bit to increase the risk/reward/choice between exploring the 2nd dungeon more to get stronger or braving the jungle without these preparations. (An upgraded gold or shadow armor is recommended.)
I made 3 separate copies of the world file so you essentially have 3 different 'save' files (A new character for each world file so you can play through the game as different classes at the same time).
One of the two secret abilities of the corrupt tooth can now be discovered from a sign.
There is an additional magic mirror to be found in the corruption temple slightly off the main path.
Added extra signs with tips.
Made several jumps in the Earth temple and Corruption temple easier.
SANDBOX MAP CHANGES
Made several small changes to the Sand Box Adventure map (updated to 1.0.9). I removed the water from the starting area and from half of the ocean in the middle of the map, and added a large dam. Other changes include more gold keys since gold keys don't drop that often from slimes now. Opened up several more underground tunnels near the beginning of the game. Added more early game items to get you off to a quicker start below the spawn point, including silk and leather for crafting the early game armor upgrades. Also added a couple more magic mirrors and diving helmets. Expanded the jungle in a second area and added more demon altars about the world.
If you are playing with the Dark Souls (Digging Allowed) version of the mod, I highly recommend using this map.
Increased the difficulty of some bosses on Normal, Hard and Evil modes. Reduced the difficulty of the final boss on Evil mode. Added a few "sequence-breaking" changes to the map, so that game progression is more linear where it should be. Updated the mod to tConfig v27.1, which includes the source files for those than want to recompile the mod for future updates or want to edit the mod for their own enjoyment. Other minor changes, including some item placement changes or additions in a couple spots, and opened up the first EoW arena. Also removed a couple hearts from the first two dungeons. Moved the 2 additional magic mirrors to different locations so they are not immediately available. Added the newest Dual Wielding mod which is crash-bug free. Hurray! Made spikes and hellstone brick do the same amount of damage as you gain more defense (thanks Yorai) so the 6th and final dungeon provides the intended difficulty. Added the Piggy Bank to most Save Points so that you have both the Piggy Bank and Safe to use for storage at most Save Points. Reduced the number of Greater Healing Potions across the map. Sharks no longer dro
