    The answer? 1,260,976. Thats a lot. I wish we were monitoring this so we could have had a cool, "TShock has over 1 million downloads!" thread.

    Thanks for being supporters of our hobby project, and making a pretty successful venture~!

    (before you ask, the image only shows the releases API, there were 284,368 downloads on the older download page)

    Hi! TShock 4.2.6 ensures plugin compatibility with the 4.2.5 release.
    • Plugins that use SqlTable.EnsureExists were breaking in the previous version, and this plugin adds that signature back (#826).
    • SqlTable.EnsureExists (void) has been deprecated in favor of SqlTable.EnsureTableStructure (bool). Please update your plugins accordingly.

    This is TShock for Terraria, 4.2.5 for Terraria Also, check out the new plugin section, complete with XenForo resource manager, and a spiffy new set of forums! Plugin authors, please create new resources using resource manager as soon as possible. The old forums will be removed soon!

    Changes include:
    • The automatic update checker is now powered by mimic, and works on Mono without using the infamous Mozroots workaround (#836).
    • REST now supports using UTF-8 in order to support Terraria's newly added support for UTF-8 (#858).
    • The group management system no longer creates the default groups if they aren't present (feel free to delete vip and admin without hassle now).
    • The /user commands no longer have success and then fail afterwards or silently (#543).
    • Add account create & delete hooks (#859).
    • The update manager no longer shuts down after a single failed request. If it fails a request, it decreases the retry time to 5 minutes to attempt to get a better retry sooner rather than later.

    Hey everyone!

    Since we have these shiny new forums, how about some feedback from our wonderful community.
    This thread is going to be a request thread, where you guys can request new features, bug fixes, changes in behavior, etc etc. If the team decides your idea is worth doing, we will add it to our internal backlog of things to work on. Keep in mind this doesn't mean TShock is back in full swing. This is simply a few developers having a bit of time on their hands and wanting to potentially clean up some smelly code.


    Here are the rules:
    1. You are allowed exactly one suggestion at a time.
      • One post
      • One suggestion
      • You must wait until a developer has addressed your suggestion before you post again.
    2. Read through the list of suggestions and 'like' the suggestions that you feel benefit the software in order to help us find out what you guys want.
      • Repeating an idea already addressed or posted just makes us mad, don't do it.
    3. Remember that we are a server software mod, and can do nothing related to the client such as login behavior, custom items/mobs/projectiles etc.


    Simply post one suggestion in one post for us, and when we quote your post you are welcome to post a new idea. But only if your post is quoted does it mean we have addressed it.
    If you break the above rules, you forfeit your right to comment in this thread anymore, as well as potentially face a 24 hour ban from the forums. These rules exist to create a somewhat organized process out of the chaos that is...

    For those of you who visit often, the site probably looks like it went through a giant makeover in the last several hours. Here are some important highlights that have taken place as a direct result of getting XenForo 1.4.5:
    • Some important changes that come directly from this include a fancy new responsive design that makes mobile viewing a lot better.
    • The editor now automatically saves drafts and supports iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.
    • Custom forum banners for donors (thank you!)
    • Multiquotes
    • Online status indicators in messages
    • People can be tagged/@replied! (Thanks for the tip @Enerdy)!
    Some other changes have happened indirectly:
    • The old portal was discontinued by the author, as well as the old spam control system. As a result both have been removed. In the case of the portal, we're using "Extra Portal" by ExtraLicense, and the newer versions of xenForo automatically include checking against the StopForumSpam database for registrations (something we had as a result of the now discontinued XenUtilities package).
    • Full, automatic HTTPS support is now running correctly. You should see a green lock in your URL bar indicating that you're using a fully HTTPS/TLS site now. Mixed content warnings should be completely gone as well, because all images and links are proxied through the forums.
    • The information footer has been reverted back to the standard XenForo copyright only one.
    • We have discontinued our question & answer captcha, that prompted users to fill in a short quiz about Terraria. Instead, we now use KeyCaptcha, something that spambots have quite a lot of difficulty resolving.
    If you encounter any problems, please let me know here as to what's gone wrong. Hope you enjoy the upgrade, and again, I'm very happy to thank the donors that made this upgrade possible. Thanks!
