Configuration options

From Calamity Mod Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Several features of the Calamity Mod can be toggled though the usage of either tModLoader's in-game configuration menu or the external CalamityMod_CalamityConfig.json file.

CalamityMod_CalamityConfig.json resides in one of the following locations by default:

  • Windows: "C:\Users\username\Documents\My Games\Terraria\tModLoader\ModConfigs"
  • Mac: "~/Library/Application support/Terraria/ModLoader/Mod Configs"
  • Linux: "Home/.local/share/Terraria/Modloader/Mod Configs"

If editing CalamityMod_CalamityConfig.json manually, the player must quit Terraria completely, edit the settings in the file, and then start Terraria again in order for them to take effect.
