Why is the Desert Scourge not spawning in Calamity Mod?

One of the most popular mods on Terraria is the Calamity Mod. The mod expands the number of bosses that can be challenged throughout the game. 

Bosses can be regarded as resilient enemies that offer challenges to players. Defeating bosses requires strategy and energy. Desert Scourge is an example of a tough boss available for battle in Calamity Mode.

Why Desert Scourge is not spanning

Desert Scourge will likely spawn like any other calamity mod boss.  But if it doesn’t spawn, then this is an indication that you haven’t made progress in the game.  

The Desert Scourge is designed to be one of the first bosses to be battled in calamity mode. The scourge will spawn by itself. It is considered to be one of the weakest enemies on the mode.
