Quest-building Knowledge Sources
Level-building Knowledge Sources

The Dungeons & Levels (http://torchmodders.com/wiki/doku.php?id=levels_dungeons) pages on our Trochmodders wiki (thanks to Anarch16sync !)

The following were found from the old Runicgames.com forums...
The following are (partial) copies of the Runic GUTS wiki tuts
And the research continues...

Hi All.  I intend to collect knowledge (starting with a list of tuts) about making levels/maps/dungeons and also making quests and place them in the original post.

I'm doing this as my first step in preparing to make a "factions mod" which (i think for now) is mainly quest-driven and will need custom levels for the "base" of each faction.

Feel free to toss me links to anything that looks eveny remotely helpful for these topics :D

@Phanjam This is a wonderful idea!  :)

Factions is something I have never seen any Torchlight modder attempt previously in my knowledge. However For Quest and Dungeon Logic I would say:

Be careful with Adventure Pack II since it crashes Multiplayer and sometimes Single Player. (On the other hand if anyone can fix it).

I realize someone would have to dive into these mods inside Guts or Text editors however those are the first TL2 Links in my mind.

Finally I looked for outside sources for ideas on how they implement or mod factions in their games:

So I'm thinking of a large map where the various factions offer bounty Quests for the player and ultimately there are hidden kill counters that affect how the factions treat the player. Just an idea.  :)

Added a few more video tutorials I saw on the old runicgames.com forums. Still mostly about level-building; there seem to be very few tuts on quest-making. Will check out the Steam forums tomorrow.
