I wanted to see my old character so a friend told me to click view integrity of files then my heart dropped when I saw the world and character I had when I was playing with modes disappear. Are they lost forever? Also note that I put my last character on steam cloud but it never popped up.

I see all the tmodloader stuff still in the file I just don't know if its all there, tmodloader practically stopped working. I cant see mod browsing or anything like that when I open up terraria.

Anyone else have a problem like that?

TModLoader effectively replaces the official Terraria.exe with a custom, mod-enabled version. Steam's "verify files" feature fixes any files in the installation path that are different from what the base installation expects. This means that TModLoader will be removed.

TModLoader saves modded players and worlds in a different folder than the base Terraria game. This is so that modded and base files don't intermingle. Due to this separation, you won't be able to see modded content from the base installation (which you currently have), and you can't see base content if you have a modded installation (TModLoader).

Luckily, these files are not included in Steam's file verification, so theoretically all you'll have to do to see the modded content again is to reinstall TModLoader (and possibly the mods you were using).
