We've also added a special tool to GUTS designed to convert pre-GUTS mods into the official mod format, with an eye toward making the transition much easier for our ambitious early modders. We've tried to make the process as seamless as possible, with a focus on allowing modded multiplayer games with a minimum of fuss. Steam Workshop integration with Torchlight II Torchlight II now fully supports Steam Workshop. Steam Workshop integration allows for automatic mod subscription and synchronization for any mods hosted on the Workshop. When playing Internet games you will be able to filter modded games by mod combination in the lobby, and with a single button click, subscribe to those mods. Torchlight II will then restart, synchronize and activate them before returning you to the game.
GUTS Wiki New to modding? Here's how to get started with GUTS - the that we have been working on.
You will definitely want to bookmark this resource! New Content for Everyone We've been working on lots of new content! Here is a taste of what awaits you. The NetherRealm tileset - new NetherRealm dungeons can be found via portals throughout the world. New Monsters. New armor sets. New weapons.
Am studiat tot ce am gasit relativ la limite in decibeli si am gasit cateva valori contradictorii (mentionate si aici pe forum). Ore de liniste la bloc.
New pets - including the Headcrab!. New endgame map content. Additional dungeons can be found throughout the overworld in New Game Plus modes Q&A with Tools Engineer Greg Brown Tools Engineer Greg Brown created GUTS, and he's the best man to tell you more about it. Tell us about GUTS! Does it stand for anything? How did that name come about?
GUTS is the new version of our content editor we used to create all the content for Torchlight II. We use it to make most things in the game - Levels, skills, classes, monsters, items, spawn classes, balance curves, UI, etc.
Pretty much the only things we don't use it for are model, animation, 2D art/texture, and music/sound creation. We use 3D Studio Max, Photoshop, and whatever Matt uses down in California for those. We started this project with 'TorchED' which was used for Torchlight, but we've made a large number of improvements and additions for GUTS. GUTS doesn't really stand for anything.
The dry and boring story is that we compile the game source as a DLL for the editor which was originally called 'core.dll' but that was confusing because we had another class called 'core' so I changed the name to 'editorguts.dll' at some point. Although later I think I was playing Shao-Lin's Road on the cocktail cabinet in the office and was amused by the protagonist saying 'GUTS!' At the end of each level while flexing. I also enjoyed the Nickelodeon show and dream of owning a piece of the Aggro Crag. I mostly wanted to differentiate the new version from the last and I like the mental image of being elbows-deep in the guts of the game when you use the editor. Also, my Mom tells me Grandma wouldn't let her say 'guts' as a kid, which I've always found amusing. What are some of the challenges you face when creating the tool set?
What did you enjoy about it? The original 'TorchED' project was done in the same amount of time as Torchlight. We hit the ground running and were making the tools as we were engineering the game. We were laying track as the train was running across them, more or less. For Torchlight II, we already had a that work done, so I was able to go back and refine a lot of the rough spots and improve the tools in many ways without worrying as much about the train.
A significant challenge when making these tools has always been engineering with modding in mind. It does take quite a bit of time to design game and tool features around making them easily and flexibly moddable through editing game data, but it ends up being really fun to see what people come up with in the end and it adds a lot of longevity to the game.
As far as enjoyment, I very much enjoy working with so many different part of the team and game. I enjoy having the freedom to work on little utilities I think up in the shower or as I'm riding the bus home (some of which end up being very useful, others not so useful). I really enjoy taking a little time to make long and difficult processes easier and automated. How do you hope players will respond to the tools?
I hope people find them useful. People are already modding Torchlight II without GUTS and doing really cool things. I can only hope to help them do more, faster, and with less headache. I do worry at times that some people will be let down when they realize GUTS isn't a 'Runic Games General Game Development Kit.' GUTS is very much a Torchlight II content development tool. You can do lots of neat things as long as you want to make them for Torchlight II or a Torchlight II-like game. If someone is looking to make a different sort of game, they should probably look elsewhere.
I hope people keep doing what they've already been doing. I love seeing people work as a community to learn, teach, and create mods together. We're releasing our tools and we engineered our game this way because we enjoy giving people a fun platform for creativity and insight into the, uh, guts of the game. Guts?!) I spent many hours in high school creating many terrible levels with the the Duke Nukem 3D Build engine and it makes me happy to be able to pass that experience on to others. Q&A with Art Director Jason Beck Tell us about the NetherRealm tileset - what's the inspiration? Well, we had a very small taste of it in Torchlight II, and certainly hints of what that realm might look like, but we never crossed over, so to speak.
So, the main idea was to go 'into the portal' and visit the NetherRealm. We wanted it to feel as organic as possible and as dissimilar as we could make it to the other tilesets. Everything is built on a grid, and in some tilesets it's very apparent (as much as we tried to disguise it). This tileset had to look chaotic, organic, and make you forget about the grid. Along with that, we really wanted it to look barren, harsh, and completely alien. Besides just being visually different, gameplay wise, we wanted the terrain to offer something different.
Originally, due to time constraints, we weren't planning on doing bridges. However, a few pieces were made, and after level design started experimenting with them, we quickly realized that using the bridges in a weird, winding way, and changing elevations with them was what really gave the tileset character, and drastically altered the overall vibe in a very cool way. The result is great. A lot of people here agree that it's one of the coolest tilesets for the game now. Anything players should be on the lookout for? There are new monsters in the NetherRealm, and some entirely new variants on existing monsters as well. No big easter eggs, although I'm sure a particular level designer wrote his name out of vines or something in at least one of the levels We also have added several new 'NG+ only' dungeons throughout the game.
These will show up in any NG+ mode. We wanted to give players who have already completed the game incentive to go back through and explore new areas. These dungeons will always roll 100%, and are located in passes and Overworld areas. There are also a few new NG+ Random Events that can spawn in in various parts of the game to add some new variety, as well as a few new phase beast rooms.
So previously i installed Tl2 essentials and later replaced it with a version that supported synergy mods My mod Load order is; Enhanced Retex p1 Enhanced Retex p2 Synergies HighLoot Lao 2.0 Chaos Edition Arkhams Armoury Syndergies MOD compatible Torchlight2 essentials Synergies MOD Fareast Pack 1 Far East Preview Pack 2 However i have a additional file unchecked and that is 'tochlight 2 essentials' - now i know that Syndergies MOD compatible Torchlight2 essentials is just a modified 'Tochlight 2 Essentials' to make it compatible with so do i just ignore 'Torchlight 2 essentials'? Or do i check it and include it in my mod order like this? Enhanced Retex p1 Enhanced Retex p2 Synergies HighLoot Lao 2.0 Chaos Edition Arkhams Armoury Syndergies MOD compatible Torchlight2 essentials Synergies MOD Fareast Pack 1 Far East Preview Pack 2 'Tochlight 2 Essentials' Even though Torchlight 2 Essentials and Synergies MOD compatible Tochlight2 essentials are the same thing? If you have the Synergies mod compatible Torchlight2 essentials you don't need Torchlight2 essentials. Also I'd put Synergies mod and everything related to it above everything. Synergies MOD Syndergies MOD compatible Torchlight2 essentials Synergies HighLoot Enhanced Retex p1 Enhanced Retex p2 Lao 2.0 Chaos Edition Arkhams Armoury Fareast Pack 1 Far East Preview Pack 2 That's quite funny, I know u r loyal to Synergies but what?
Putting Synergies high loot below Synergies? How could u suppose to get it work ummm. That's quite funny, I know u r loyal to Synergies but what? Putting Synergies high loot below Synergies? How could u suppose to get it work ummm It needs to load the base mod first. Then you load dependent mods. You always put dependents after (or under) the mods they modify.
As far as 'loyal' to it.I like Synergies but It's not my religion or something. I haven't even played Torchlight II in years. This is just stuff I've learned from modding games for nearly 20 years. Also from now on if it's a personal question pm me instead of necroing five month old threads.
