I've looked through the forum and found a few relevant threads, but nothing definitive on how enemies spawn. Some of the threads I've seen from oldest to most recent: How will enemy mobs be spawned? Spawn Control and Events Mobs Underground Spawn Control That last one suggests that enemies spawn in a similar manner to Terraria, but I'm wondering if there is any other info about it? One of the things which annoyed me somewhat in Terraria was the constant spawning of enemies when you were trying to do something. I'm hoping that it will be possible to clear areas of enemies, at least for a while, perhaps with the area restocking over time. Thoughts?
