A mod (short for "modification") is community-developed software that customizes Terraria's graphics and/or gameplay elements in some way. Mods are neither developed nor endorsed by Re-Logic.
See The Official Terraria Mods Wiki for information on current mods available for Terraria.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- A mod is generally built to customize a particular version of Terraria, and can cause issues when used with other versions.
- Multiple mod installations can also cause conflicts. Severe conflicts may prevent creating new worlds.
- As mods are not officially tested or endorsed, they are not guaranteed to be reliable. tModLoader players may be advised to back up their saved game data (
folder), as well as their tModLoader installation (
folder with 64 bit,
folder with 32 bit) before attempting a mod installation. It is possible that saved game data becomes deleted or corrupted when installing mods.
