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:

Spoiler

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=654068491&searchtext=tl2-e
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=136232408&searchtext=synergies
Be careful with Adventure Pack II since it crashes Multiplayer and sometimes Single Player. (On the other hand if anyone can fix it).
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=182466719&searchtext=adventure+pack+ii

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:

https://eu4.paradoxwikis.com/Faction_modding
https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?threads/political-factions-major-political-events-w-example-mod.1142981/




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.  :)

At this point after playing Torchlight 2 for 5 years original and modded... ignorant of mods and now wise with compatibility... the one thing I value the most-

-is being able to have "support" from the author of any mod.

I think the only advice I can give is that you don't burn yourself out. ^_^

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.
