Torchlight - TorchED Released and Interview

by Dhruin, 2009-11-11 21:44:08

TorchED - the Torchlight editor - has finally been released. The official forum announcement links to Filefront for the download but no doubt you can pick it up from your favourite mirror. Documentation and other helpful posts are available at the Runic modding forum.

While we're talking Torchlight, Werit sends in their second of three interviews. This time, programmer Matt Tanwanteng steps up; let's take a grab on modding, since that is topical:

Werit:  Torchlight is mod-able by the players.  How much can a player add to the game?  Is it just text files or can they also add art?

Torchlight is heavily moddable. Basic modding is incredibly easy, and you can definitely add in your own art, sound, and skills without a problem.  There are definitely a few things that you won't be able to change (with a caveat that motivated, savvy modders will find a way to do it), but by and large you can do an incredible amount with the tools we give you.
