[IDEA] Maika's Quest (children's mod)
« on: August 18, 2014, 06:33:01 PM »
Here's a rather vague mod idea I have floating around in my head.

My daughter loves playing torchlight, both 1 and 2. She likes to quest and kill monsters, but what she enjoys even more, is to fish and feed that fish to her pet, watching it transform into another pet. Like any girl her age (6) she's fond of animals both a live,stuffed and virtual. So I got this idea about making a mod for kids where the objective of the game is to do simple quest (appropriate for kids), collect pets.

The Quest:

The quest must be simple and appropriate for children. It could be to solve puzzles, find items, talk to NPCs and perhaps fight monsters.

Quest Example 1: The player must save a group of animals from a pack of monsters.

Quest Example 2: The player must gather ingredients from a recipe and create (transmute) a potion. Then give that potion to a sick NPC.

Quest Example 3: The player must find a missing NPC who's gotten lost and help it back to it's home/village/parents. Monsters ambush the player on the way back.

Quest Example 4: The player needs to fish a certain amount of a certain fish to feed a hungry cat.

The Pets:

The mod will revolve heavily around fishing and finding and collecting pets. Once you got a pet in your collection, you can swap your current pet to any of the pets in your collection.
The player should also be able to have more than one pet at the time. (Minions) Some pets have a time limit others don't. Perhaps you need a certain pet to complete a quest.

Many of the NCPs and quest givers will be animals or "friendly looking" monsters.

I was also thinking that the children from TL1 could be used as Player Characters, but they lack animations and can't wear any of the existing armor.

I don't have much more than that. It's just a random idea I got when playing Torchlight with my daughter.

@Phanjam requesting a take down of a spam post mentioning false passports. Would also request you check that Johny Tawn is not a Bot and check that account's previous posts in case it has spammed before. Thanks for your time.

Delete my post here as well. Let's not clutter Wolven's good work.  :)

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. ^_^
