It offers hectic gameplay that makes you think on your feet, especially when it comes to hurdles it throws you along the way. Be it in the form of short circuited wires, power station shutdowns or overloaded capacitors, it’s your job as the CEO of the electric company to cater to your city and make sure everything’s running as it should be. The challenge comes from when the problems arise at the same time, sometimes in multitudes, that leaves you no room to breathe. A lot of players’ questions would be, can you pause the game? The answer is both yes and no.
While there is no active way to pause the game once it starts, Power to the People offers two game modes right before you jump into the action.
High Energy or Strategic mode caters to different types of players, and while most hardcore, time management and resource management players would choose High Energy for a more realistic approach to the game, the laid-back players can enjoy a moment’s breather if they choose Strategic mode.
In Strategic mode, the game pauses automatically once the clock strikes midnight. This would then allow you to make the necessary upgrades or fix whichever lines are broken– anything you wanted to do – until you decide to move on to the next day.
While it’s not the active pause where you can just pause whenever you want that players wanted, it’s a good game mode that makes the game a bit more palatable for those just starting.
It would still be challenging as the city grows but it at least offers reprieve if you’re panicking once the amount of problems in one day of the game become too overwhelming for you to solve.
Terraria: Labor of Love | Shimmer Guide
One of the things that stand out in the Labor of Love Content is the Shimmer Liquid which has now become available early in the game.
In old versions of Terraria, the Shimmer liquid is part of the end game content. That means you will have access to it only when you’ve progressed further into the game.
In the Labor of Love content, the Aether Mini Biome is randomly spawned into the world and all you need to do is look for it.
Depending on how fast you can dig, you will be able to gain access to the Aether Mini Biome early in the game which opens up different item conversions which we will be discussing further on.
In this guide, we will show you the different uses for the Shimmer liquid in Terraria 1.4.4.
Labor of Love Shimmer Guide in Terraria
The shimmer liquid affects items in the game in different ways. Items that are crafted from different materials will sometimes disassemble when thrown into the liquid.
Throw items into the liquid to disassemble or upgrade existing items
Other items get upgraded to new versions of items exclusive in the latest update. Examples of this are the Life Crystal which turns into a vital crystal in the pool. This grants permanent regeneration boosts.
Another item is the Rod of discord. Throwing that into the pool will change it into a rod of Harmony where you can use the rod’s ability to teleport without suffering any debuff from use.
Try throwing different items to see their results
NPCs that fall into the liquid will change their appearances and if you fall into the pond, you will be sucked down and pass through blocks. Try to throw in different items and test out their results.
