This is a critical bug-fix release for TShock v4.3.24. It fixes a bug wherein a malicious payload sent by an attacker to the server could cause any number of the following effects:

  • Instantaneous crashing or lagging all clients.
  • Causing the server to enter an infinite loop (deadlock).
  • Chunks of the world may be corrupted permanently and saved to the disk.
  • General denial of service attacks.

If a client attempts this exploit, the API will disconnect them with the reason Disconnecting [player] (IP) for attempted packet length overflow crash/DoS attempt. It is highly suggested that any player caught doing this is immediately permanently banned. This fix does not take this action in order to prioritize getting the fix out as fast as possible.

If you have been using general-devel builds, the latest branch build of general-devel also includes this fix. If you have been using a custom version of TShock, you can safely just patch the Terraria Server executable and tick your own TShock version number appropriately.

This is TShock 4.3.21 for Terraria 1.3.4.4 on OTAPI 2.0.0.9 with compatibility for the Terraria Server API version 1.26.

That's a mouthful. We're referring to all releases of TShock on OTAPI as "TShock Mintaka."

This is a pre-release build. On a technical level, this is TShock for Terraria with the Terraria Server API's hooking system and event broadcast system on top of the Open Terraria API. This is a step towards the future that Orion brings, which is why it's called Mintaka, one of the stars in Orion's belt.

Effectively, this is a stock Terraria server with a lot of magic sauce on the side. The Open Terraria API is a re-engineering effort that's been developed in parallel with TShock for the longest time. The hooks and modifications that we used to do in the Terraria Server API have been coalesced into modifications that, when run with the Open Terraria API bootstrapper, create a version of Terraria that can load TShock and other TSAPI plugins without actually upgrading TSAPI to the latest version.

This was primarily the work of Death (fka. DeathCradle), who did quite a lot of effort to get the API working on OTAPI. Enerdy painstakingly helped get Mintaka working.

Future goals:

  • Get Mintaka building on Linux.

What to test:

  • Proper functionality of TShock, and other Terraria Server API plugins on Mintaka.
