It’s here! After lots of packaging, tweaking, and testing, they’re rolling out the new Torchlight editor – GUTS. In this action-packed update they have some important information on what exactly GUTS is and how it can work for you. You might want to bookmark this page for later.
Modding in Torchlight 2
Torchlight 2 now fully supports Steam Workshop. A new launcher synchronizes any mods you have subscribed to, and lets you customize their activation state and loading priority. In addition, when playing Internet games in the lobby, you will be able to filter modded games by mod combination, and with a single button click, subscribe to those mods. Torchlight 2 will then restart, synchronize them, and activate them before returning you to the game.
When playing modded games, you can view your mod history, any previously played mods, and the impact disabling mods may have on your character.
They’ve tried to make the process as seamless as possible, with a focus on allowing modded multiplayer games with a minimum of fuss.
GUTS is the in-house development tool, now fully integrated with Steam Workshop. You can publish directly to Steam Workshop when you compile your mod, making it available immediately for others to play.
They’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.
