Tips[edit | edit source]
- All seasonal events can be "activated" by setting the device's date to any date within the respective event's timespan.
- Change the computer's date to any day within the timespan.
- Disconnect from Xbox Live / PSN and change the console time.
- Disconnect from automatic date/time updates and set the time to any day within the timespan. Note that this does not work for some devices.
- Go to "System Settings" and set the date there.
- If a change of the device's time is undesired, applications like "RunAsDate" allow launching Terraria with a changed time and date.
