Khaios suggestions compilation

Khaios is a full time terrarian youtuber with over 300 thousand subscribers who mainly focuses on the building aspects of terraria. Recently I’ve spent a few days perusing through nearly of his post 1.4.4 content and more on youtube and have enjoyed it a lot. Therefore I have decided to make a list of all of his suggestions he makes during his videos on how the game could be given more QOL and made more fun. This compilation is still a WIP and I have added my own detailed sketches to help further illustrate his suggestions with some of my ideas thrown in there as well.

When you paint a prismatic lacewing jar with echo paint and put it on an echo platform, thanks to prismatic lacewings having a glow mask, you are able to create the illusion that the prismatic lacewing is floating which is great for ambient builds.

However, this technique does not work with other critters in a jar. It would be neat if relogic made this technique also work on different fairies in a jar as well as butterflies and dragonflies in a jar, or at least golden butterflies and dragonflies in a jar as it would be super fun to build a gold mansion and decorate the golden greenhouse with some flying golden butterflies and dragonflies.


Grey brick that is painted doesn’t blend in with the surrounding dirt properly when painted. This makes the painted brick clash with the surroundings a bit.

The fall wall family consists of five members: water, lava, honey, sand and snow. It would be nice for shimmer to be adopted into this family for the new update.

A new coating which lets you apple the reflective dye effect to blocks to make them look shiny would be really sweet, maybe it could be called “high gloss” or “glossy” coating, not sure how you would obtain it though.

Basically all bosses and mini bosses drop some sort of placable reward so it would be cool if you could also place down the torch god’s favor as its blue flame looks quite appealing. The only pieces of furniture that look similar to the torch god’s favor when placed are gotta be the hanging brazier, marble lamp, marble chandelier, marble candelabra, and glass kiln.

In 1.4.4 shortly after quad racer drones were introduced, khaios made a bit of a speech about how sick it would be if RC cars existed in terraria and this suggestion in the compilation is honestly one of my favourites as I also think RC cars are cool as heck. Khaios also proposed that they could be obtained pre HM.

Alright, so when the mechanic is living next to the goblin tinkerer, the goblin tinkerer will sell a special item called the “RC transmitter” which spawns in a controllable “RC truck” which the camera will centre on (thanks to radio technology!). The RC truck can also be weaponised by interacting with it using illegal gun parts. This will install a gun on top of the RC truck which can shoot, and also be demounted if the player desires. However when the RC truck shoots it will convert all types of ammunition into musket balls, all types of non destructive rockets into rocket 1s, and all types of destructive rockets into rocket 2s. The RC truck can also drive underwater and all damage from musket balls and rockets it can shoot would be increased by 5%.

(the first image is of the “RC transmitter” the other 3 images are the angle shots of the RC truck, and the 5th image is what it’s size could possibly be compared to the player. I was thinking that it could have a similar colour palette to the rocket boots to match the goblin tinkerer’s style.)

But that’s not all! The RC transmitter and be upgraded to the “shroomite transmitter “ which is crafted using 10 shroomite bar and the RC transmitter at a HM anvil. The shroomite spawns in a shroomite RC truck which can be controlled similarly to the normal RC truck but when illegal gun parts are mounted on top of the RC it would be able to shoot any type of ammo and rockets that also deal an extra 15% damage rather than a 5% damage increase instead of just basic musket balls and rockets.

(Here is an image of the shroomite transmitter, RC truck, and a close up shot of the gun that can be mounted on it using illegal gun parts. The shroomite RC truck is inspired by RC AT monster trucks and has a colour palette that matches the other shroomite gear as I always thought shroomite had a high tech aesthetic)


Chester is good storage pet but the main gripes people have with it is that it takes up a pet slot and moves around too much. To solve this chest could take up a functional pet slot instead or be summoned from the inventory similar to the money trough, made not move around as much, and made link to the player’s safe rather than their piggy bank.

We have player logic sensor but no NPC and projectile logic sensors. If you can also easy make player logic sensors using soul of sight, wires, and iron it would make sense if you could also craft NPC logic sensors the same way but with soul of might rather than sight and you could craft Projectile logic sensors using soul of fright.

There are 4 weighted pressure plates but the they all do the same exact thing. There should be a new different coloured weighted pressure plate which activates if a NPC is on them.


These teleporters will only take an entity coming in and not one going out or work so you can go out but not go back in. These would be great for adventure maps rather than just normal teleporters. I was thinking they could be red instead of yellow and look slightly different as well.

It would be really neat if honey blocks could let you place mechanisms such as cannons, confetti cannons, portal guns, bunny cannons, and snowball launchers stick to the side of wall and on top of ceilings.

The weather in terraria is quite disastrous and there are frequent downpours, that’s why if the player had the ability to change the weather using some sort of enchanted dial it would be neat, especially when building. Or relogic could implement a weather monolith that just changes what the weather looks like in its surrounding area, but does not change stuff like mob spawns. Here is post similar to this suggestion made by Żuczku.

A nice little feature in minecraft is that you can change mobs names and prevent them from despawning. It would be neat if terraria added name tag or “labels” ( just to make it sound less from minecraft) to the game, and here is how it could be implemented.

Other - A compilation of all of khaios’ suggestions (22)

So, you can craft 4 “labels” at an iron anvil using 1 rope, 2 pieces of wood, and 1 black ink from a squid.

Other - A compilation of all of khaios’ suggestions (23)

Once, the labels have been acquired there name can be changed at the goblin tinkerer to whatever the player wants at a cost of some coins. For their usage, if you use a label which name has not been changed to anything on a mob it will have no effect and be consumed. But if you use a label with no name on a NPC the NPC’s name would switch to another random name that the NPC has. So for example, using an unnamed label on a merchant called Alfred would cause his name to become another random merchant name such as frank.

However if you were to change the name of your label at the goblin tinkerer to “test subject” for example, you could them change NPC, critters and enemies names to “test subject “ (or just have the ability for it to work on enemies and critters at least) they would then no longer be targeted by minion and they also would not despawn.

This feature would give ink a new use and also let you make containment units for different mobs in your world. This image illustrates a rock golem being name test subject.


Wired chests are complete worthless, if you want to use a chest for an adventure map you could either use a chest for storage or you can use a chest for wiring, you cannot use one for both except for the deadman’s chest, but the deadman’s chest only comes in one design and there is only so much you can do with it with paint. I wish they could of went through and instead of having the deadman’s chest like this, they could just make every wired chest a deadman’s chest.

The wired chest got wiring in them, just give it a storage capability and then we could have a deadman’s chest in every wired chest design, and make the sing particular chest redundant for adventure maps. The amount of utility you would gain for builders would be really handy especially for those who like to do stuff with adventure maps and in multiplayer.

It would be handy if ferilizer could also make mushrooms instantly grow into mushroom trees.

the lantern nights background effect looks cool and it would be cool if it had it’s own monolith so you can have lanterns in the background just for decorative purposes but gain no of the luck bonuses at any time. The lantern monolith could be sold by the witch doctor during a lantern night (as he already sells different types of biome fountains) or else maybe it could be crafted using release lanterns. The lantern monolith’s tooltip is “ keep a portion of the lantern celebration alive”.

Other - A compilation of all of khaios’ suggestions (27)

The lantern monolith’s appearance is insipired by a traditional chinese paper lantern and when it is powered a flame will light in it it and it will start floating up and down similar to the pillar monoliths.
