Something I have to say, I have to keep the mod Variant to a reasonable size so I may have to recompress some files.

@Korzeam:  I will go ahead and re-prep my textures from source, then.

DXT5, without mipmaps, correct?

And for the dragons I'm not going to implement them all, these files are particularly big.

To save you some trouble, I will eliminate the subtler color variants from the archive (they annoy me too).  That should leave you with 4-6 additional dragon textures, at most.

@Korzeam

In Dark Transformation on Deathknight skill, Pet & Minions can grow. I thought, what if you made a Passive Spell Scroll for Variant Pet. Which can make a pet grow & get skills when it reaches every certain level. That way you don't need to give skills one by one to each Pet in the Pet Variant. ;)

Unless you will give unique skills to some Pet. For example, Dragon with fire breath, Spiders that spray spider webs, etc. :P


I also hope that there are some Pet Variants that can be a Range attack type rather than being made into a melee attack. Not all of them, but some that are fitting if made like that. For example:

- Flamekegger Dwarf -> Fireball
- Mech Construct -> Machine Gun
- Netherim Spinethrower -> Glaive Thrower
- Lich -> Nether Spell

That way you can choose a Pet with a melee attack or a range attack to accompany you in your adventure. :D



Can you also remove Beam from "Goblin Treasure, Grand Regent & Dark Alchemist" ? because it's quite disturbing when we playing. :(
Or change the beam be like a Semi Beam in Avatar Pet. ;D

Also add dragon skin from Lesser Dragon

Find good new monsters if added to the Pet Variant. I found a kind of Kraken monster in Epic Encounters Mod.

Honestly, that sounds more complicated than simply "gating" 1-2 vanilla monster Skills (per pet) to character level.

Mind you, I am uncertain if [AI] blocks (a StatWatcher variant, which enables / disables monster Skills based on environmental parameters) support Character Level as an input.  It might be worth a shot.

@Korzeam can you make that there is no double starting pet if we use the Variant Pet with the Torchlight II Essential Mod. Because the Torchlight II Essential has just been updated and includes several pets from the variant pet, so there is a double. I will track which pet is double. ;)

I just found 3 twin pet:
- Imaginary Pet
- Bard Golem
- Teddy Bear



There is a little strange, why is the number of pet the same as the previous version of the Torchlight II Essential (when there are no twins).  ::)

But when using the latest version there are twins, and the number of pet is the same. If the twin pet is removed, the amount of pet will be less than before. Is there a pet that disappears when using this mod together? if it's true, I don't know which pet is missing.
But this did not happen in the previous version. ???

Yes I see that.
Well, he could have used same names and GUID than me, it would be more simple.  :P
If I change names and GUID now, some people could have issues...

For the GUID I don't think it's a problem so much if you put the Variant Pet Mod above Torchlight II Essential, because he will be a priority.
The problem is the twin pet and some of the pet disappeared. :(

And I also suspect that there are at least 3 pets that disappeared from the pet variant when you used them together with Torchlight II Essential.

Is there a solution to overcome this? ::)



Maybe this can be discussed with Lone Wolf McQuaid. Even better if he can join here, so we can exchange ideas & discussed more further. :D
