Mesas were added in the Update 1.7.2. They are made mostly of Hardened Clay and Stained Clay of varying colors (see below). They appear to be rather barren and rare, with only Dead Bushes and the occasional patch of gray-brown Trees. Occasional valleys filled with Red Sand and Cacti will appear but this is less common.
