Bee Swarm!

edited April 2012 in Mod Showcase
Ever wanted to make your dog vomit bees? Well now you can! With the release of the editor, I'll have a write-up on how to create this ability as an example run-through.

http://www.runicgamesfansite.com/torchlightmods/node/34

http://www.torchlightinsider.com/forums ... .php?t=282

README.TXT:

Feel the power of the swarm!

Enables the Bee Swarm spell to drop in game (rarely). Teach it to your pet for extra fun! Bees are most effective against large groups, sowing panic and terror en masse.

Points in Offensive Spell Mastery makes their bee stings more painful, and the bees will stay mad longer (10s-20s)

You can spawn the scroll to test by using the console and entering "bee swarm". (This flags you, so don't ruin your legit characters testing it)


To install:
Extract to your %appdata%\Runic Games\Torchlight\mods directory.

Should resemble C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\runic games\torchlight\mods\Bees on Vista or Windows 7.

Type %appdata% in start->run to access your application data directory.

    Cool. The most exciting thing to me in the editor is the ability to create your own spells with their own effects and add them to the game. So I'm super hyped on seeing how it's done step by step.

    The possibilities are endless. I have a wild imagination but I don't think even I would have come up with a dog vomiting bees as an offensive spell. :lol:
    Arguing over a video game? That's just silly.
  • Any idea on an exact date for the editor's release?
    I'm dying to get to modding
    I've done some serious warcraft 3 maps for years, and this will be incredible.

    Thats a map that I've been working on for a while that resembles a combination of Nox and Diablo 3.. but now that Torchlight came out and the editor is on its way, I've cancelled everything .. lol

    very nice!
  • I am assuming you need TorchED to do this type of Mod...? as one file I do not know what application to open it with and the other has parameter values that are very obscure. Can't wait for the instructions. :D

    Ah, that ****!

    Personally, I'm not sure I'd ever use it, but I love the idea of it, so I had to download the mod.

    Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, but will spell masteries effect pets in the first patch?

    awesome spell, i just tried it out with a cheat character, i gave one spell to the dog and i had one, it torn things apart, although sometimes if you are to close to the enemy and you (the player) use the spell, only a few bees come out and they disappear fast, but the dog uses them well so that's good, can it be upgraded? i was just running around the mine dungeon and it was working good, but how does it work against bigger mobs?

    This is good to know, thanks for the heads up. Did you have any special characters in your account name ? If not, what is your install version and OS?
  • i simply added this spell and a couple of other items to the vendor list, that was before you made this thread though.

    since the spell was already in the game adding it to the list was all i hadta do.
  • this is totally awesome, thanks for the mod
