I am a big fan of Terraria, and I like this theme, but there are a lot of things that can be improved, I'll list them below:

  1. Land texture is boring. Add some more variation, like large patches of stone, and patches of ore.
  2. Try using grass as the land border.
  3. Why upside down trees? Why not vines?
  4. Make the flakes rotate, as they look weird if they don't. (Also try making them animated, because that is possible.)
  5. Maybe make some basic wooden structures and use them as land objects?
  6. Girder could be a bridge, possibly made out of wood or stone.
  7. Stretching things is OK, but don't distort things, as it looks terrible. You can tell the background is distorted because the sun is an oval shape. Also, perhaps use a better background from post 1.2 update?
  8. If you want this theme to match Hedgewars' graphic style, then redraw everything from scratch in a smooth style. However, it's fine if you don't do that.
  9. Worm patch is clipped, fix it please.

This theme looks nice. Maybe you could add more objects on it? Looks a little empty. Smile

The link is dead Sad Smiley
Anyone got a copy? I wanted to make a contribution, like for Virtualized.

EDIT:
Good news! I was able to recover a copy of this theme from my old PC.
Here it is, revived: http://www.mediafire.com/file/i6h6eql7q4c9xbv/Terraria.hwp

On top of what was done, I added some music, amGirder/Rubber (no theme is complete without them, right? Wink Smiley ), replaced mudball with rotten egg and... replaced splash sound with Terraria one (lol). Sudden Death got improvements too, obviously.

I might add some more Terraria graphics later (or someone else could contribute too), because the theme is very basic. Contains only stuff from early Terraria releases.

However, there's one thing that got me thinking: flakes. Why they are uniform-sized? It could be nice if we could add flakes of any size, like it is with e.g. animated water. What I mean, I themed Sudden Death after Moon Lord battle, but it would be even more cool if I could make Moon Lord floating in background as a flake. The sprite is, however, ~4 times bigger than flake size, so...
