You can craft Cactus into a variety of things now! Including some pretty whacko overpowered early game items. Like the Cactus Sword which just needs 10 Cactus. The Sword has incredible range and will mow down early game monsters with ease! The armor also has 1 extra defense and looks way better than most early game sets. And don't forget you can now build Workbenches , Doors , Chairs , Backwalls and even use it as a building block now!
