The Inventory is the first storage option available in Terraria. It provides a number of slots for items to be stored and used.
The Inventory can be opened by pressing the ESC (default) button on the keyboard. In the Inventory, collected items are stored, and can be accessed by the player. The Inventory consists of the following:
The Hotbar is the top 10 horizontal slots that items can be placed into. They are also numbered from 1-9 and 0 at the end, allowing the player to select 10 different items. To switch between items, press the corresponding number of the target slot, or use the mouse wheel to scroll through the Hotbar. Once an item is selected in the Hotbar, it can be used by clicking the left mouse button. To the left of the Hotbar is a small padlock that can be toggled to lock the items in place to prevent accidentally switching items.
There are 30 Storage slots in the inventory that can be used to store any items collected. After the Hotbar is full, storage slots will be filled from the bottom right to the top left.
Trash Can SlotEdit
The Coins slot consists of four slots used to hold the four different types of coins the player can collect throughout the game. Only coins can be placed in these slots.
The Ammo slot is used to store four stacks of Ammo; ammo stored in these slots will be used first. Any ammo stored in the Storage Slots will be used once the ammo in the ammo slot is depleted.
The Equipment Slots consists of three slots that Armor can be placed into; there is a slot for each armor type (Head/Shirt/Pants).
The Social Slots consists of three slots that Vanity Items and Armor can be placed into to give the player a visual effect. However, no stats can be gained from items in the Social Slots. The items in the Social Slots will cover the items placed in the Equipment Slots. The social slots function similarly to the Equipment Slots.
The Accessories Slots consist of five slots where Accessories can be placed to help the player. Only Accessories can be placed in these slots, such as Obsidian Skull, Hermes Boots, Cloud in a bottle etc.
- Occasionally, anyone other than the host on a server might lose all of their items for no explainable reason. (Multiplayer only) So far there is no known way around it.
- Only items in the Hotbar and the Storage slots can be used for crafting.
- Once the Hotbar and Storage slots are full, the player will no longer be able to collect more items.
- All items in the Inventory are saved to the character, so items can be taken to different servers.
The Housing menu provides several options for managing NPC homes. To access this menu, click the small house icon next to the PvP icon in the inventory. To check if a house is suitable, click the ? button, then click anywhere inside the house. A message will appear, declaring whether or not the house is suitable for an NPC to live in. Check the Home page for info about suitable housing.
Once a house is considered acceptable, a random NPC whose move-in conditions have been met will claim the house during daytime. Reassign NPCs by right-clicking their flag in their house, then clicking their button in the Housing menu, and finally clicking anywhere inside the new house.
