Astral Meteor

From Calamity Mod Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Astral Meteor, a mini-biome added by the Calamity Mod, crash-lands upon defeating the Wall of Flesh. Players are alerted of an Astral Meteor crash via a status message: "A star has fallen from the heavens!"

The meteor is made out of Astral Ore, which can only be mined after defeating the Astrum Deus boss.

Conditions[edit | edit source]

An Astral Meteor has a 100% of spawning after defeating the Wall of Flesh for the first time. After the first meteor has landed, defeating the Wall of Flesh only has a 20% chance of spawning a second meteor, and only a 5% chance to spawn a third.

No new meteors will fall if there are already a certain number of Astral Ore blocks above 0 depth. The limits are:

  • Small worlds: 200
  • Medium worlds: 400
  • Large worlds: 600

16% of the world centered on your spawn point is protected from falling Astral Meteors. Astral Meteors will not land within 25 tiles of a player, NPC or a chest, nor directly on top of a platform.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Although meteorites will avoid hitting chests, one may still hit the edges of a Floating Island.
  • Unlike regular Meteorites, explosives won't work until you defeat Astrum Deus.
  • Like artificial Meteorites, placing enough Astral Ore together will create an artificial Astral Meteor biome, allowing the player to easily farm Stardust.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The Astral Meteor's theme is Heaven's Hell-Sent Gift, which was composed by the artist DM DOKURO.
