Oh my goodness I didn't realize I could use a controller to play. I was using a keyboard and mouse before, verifying the game cashe after uninstalling my mods didn't work, but I connected my controller to the game and everything works fine now! Thank you so much for your help!
My friend started a new world going into character selection it was skipping over every other character on the menu. After just picking a character it would let me select I gathered some items, if there was more than one item within close proximate to me sometimes I would run in the opposite direction and pick up the item I was running towards, I figured it was possibly lag from playing on a server. When night came I tired to make a camp fire and when I tried to select the fire crafting menu it would open for a moment and close it self before I could craft or even select an item.
