    A tree in Autumn.

Seasons are a feature added to the Terraria Overhaul mod. Each season changes the Forest biome and will affect the enemies that will spawn.

Each season lasts 12 days. A Calendar can be used to check how many days are left until the next season begins.

There is an option during world creation to choose which starting season is preferred. It is recommended by the player to choose spring, but some seasons can be beneficial to the player like autumn where the player can harvest pumpkins for armour and pies.

Spring[edit | edit source]

Spring is here! Birds are singing, flowers are blooming, as there is nothing to worry about.

Spring is the first and the most calm season, representative of the classic Terraria setting.

Environment:

  • Forest grass turns into the standard green color.
  • Surface returns to normal lighting.
  • Sunflowers act like normal and give players the Happy! buff.
  • Bushes can grow on all kinds of grass.
