Ruination
« on: January 21, 2018, 11:14:17 AM »
Mod Description

Ruination is a collection of custom weapon mods made by various modders. This is a mod branched off from Variant because I didn't want the class mod pack to be bloated with unrelated mods. Plus it would allow people to enjoy these weapon mods without using Variant Classes.

Credit goes to the respective author of the mod. What I done is merely balance them according to my personal view.

Available weaponry

Minigun : by Evilneko
- Brought back the overheat system that prevent firing.
- Attack range is shorter than Bow but longer than Cannon 
- Lower damage for balancing purpose.
- Can no longer proc steal effects.

Flamethrower : by DrCarlos
- Damage is lower than Cannon.
- Same attack range as Cannon.
- Slow attack speed.
- Always inflict Fire damage.

TL1 Rifle : by RnF
- Changed the missile so that it would aim better.

Lightsaber : by Kva3imoda
- Magic quality only.
- Deals lower damage than common 1h sword but ignores 100% armor.

This is good news but also bad news as well. The good news is you can use it separately from Mod Variant, so it does not depend on mod variant. The bad news is that the mod capacity that can be used becomes reduced by adding one mod. Unfortunately when variant mod only lack one of the Ruination mod (Light saber)

Will all weapons present on the variant mod will be removed ? because it has two mod containing the same.

They won't be deleted from Variant. But I won't be adding any new weapons into Variant.

Will there be no problem, because of data redundancy? (Although it's the same data)

It would be great if the variant mod is separate with the existing weapon. But I hope if you can add the Light Saber into variant mod, because variant mod only lacks the light saber from the Ruination mod

Will you later add other unique weapons such as Laser Gun Shield Energy to Ruination mod ?

Have a question for you, is the LightSaber file already replaced / added with the Jedi Sword file?

Because in Lightsaber Mod itself there is still a problem when you walk and swing sword, the sword looks out of place. And the lack of sound effects when the sword is swung

Yea same files/data. There should be no problem, just put this mod above Variant in the mod load order.

 I could remove those weapons from Variant but I imagine that people will not be pleased when they found out that their weapon is missing.

I'll add other weapon into this mod.. sooner or later. 

EDIT : The lightsaber works fine for me, complete with sound. There's no texture issue. Idk if its related to the Mac OS since you've been using it, right?

I have not tried Ruination mod yet, I'll try it later. If I find something strange I will tell you.  ;)

Edit:
I just tried LightSaber.Mod. If you have already included with Jedi Sword file, it seems that the problem in LightSaber.MOD is gone  :)

Hi @Viz

Do you know Command name for Lightsaber ? I want to test it.

Note:
I still think Lightsaber should be added to Variant Mod as well. So we do not need to add extra Mod that can eat mod space. I hope you can consider it  :(

@Viz so how much memory do new weapons take? Is Variant in danger of maxing it's Steam upload limit? I've only seen this happen twice with the mod "Too Many Classes" and Texture Overhaul Packs that had to be split into 2 parts.

Variant is nowhere near the size of those mods and since FEP+ effectively splits the memory limit I see no issue with Ruination being a branch clone of Variant for those who will load it's Lightsabers above FEP+ without Variant.

In fact we could just inform users of Ruination that it is in fact a piece of Variant for those who want to load it's uniquely modded weapons without the Variant Classes.

At this point after playing Torchlight 2 for 4 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. ^_^

If the size limitation of the mod is the problem, then it would be better the weapons and pets that exist on the variant mod are made separately (just focus on adding unique classes), such as the ruination mod which focuses only on unique weapons. I think all users variant mod will understand with that condition.

if there is still space, then I think adding a lightsaber still doable.

command to get lightsaber

saber_mx_01
saber_mx_02
saber_mx_03

x is the item level, replace it with either 5, 15, 25.. etc, it goes up to 105

I'm not splitting the mod due to size limit or whatever. I just didn't want to add weapon/pet mod into Variant anymore.

Hi @Viz
I've tried it, and the result is very good (Runs well on Mac OS).  :D

Can you make Lightsaber for 2H sword too? Or change one of them from 1H sword to 2H sword (saber_mx_03) and please slightly upgraded his attacks, as I'm a bit overwhelmed when using these weapons against the enemy compared to the other weapons.

It makes me sad to hear that, because the space to add my MOD has reached the limit.  :(
