Torchlight 1 Mods: Total Respec mod (Version 2.0, Jan. 10)
Total Respec mod (Version 2.0, Jan. 10)
This mod adds nine potions to the inventory of Tarn, the merchant to the top left of the stash and Torchlight's central plaza. All of them lower stats and give back stat points.
The official Respec Potion mod is included too, to allow resetting of skills.
A fixed version of "remove_binary.bat" is included too. Don't move it to another folder, because it won't work anymore then.
The 'Lesser Stat Reset Elixir' reduces all stats by 1 and grants 4 stat points.
The 'Stat Reset Elixir' reduces all stats by 5 and grants 20 stat points.
The 'Greater Stat Reset Elixir' reduces all stats by 10 and grants 40 stat points.
The 'Stat Reset Elixir Triple Value' reduces all stats by 30 and grants 120 stat points.
The 'Stat Reset Elixir Ultimate Pack reduces all stats by 50 and grants 200 stat points.
The 'Weakening Elixir' reduces the Strength stat with 10 and grants 10 stat points.
The 'Stiffening Elixir' reduces the Dexterity stat with 10 and grants 10 stat points.
The 'Ember Vaporizing Elixir' reduces the Magic stat with 10 and grants 10 stat points.
The 'Softening Elixir' reduces the Defense stat with 10 and grants 10 stat points.
The 'Potion of Skill Respec' by Runic removes all your skill points except the one in your starter skill, and gives you the skill points back to redistribute.
INSTALLATION AND UNINSTALLATION
First, make a backup of your savegames, found in "%appdata%\runic games\torchlight\save". This mod isn't dangerous, but making backups is always a good precaution.
If you have a previous version of this mod installed, delete it first. If one of your characters has a respec potion in their inventory, remove it first, since they will be deleted when you delete this mod.
Install by placing the "Total Respec"-folder in the "%appdata%\runic games\torchlight\mods" folder. Then run "remove_binary.bat" inside the "Total Respec" folder to make the game recheck the mod files on next startup. That will cause that startup to take longer than usual, but that's only once.
Uninstall by first running "remove_binary.bat", to make sure the game notices that the mod is gone, and then delete the "Total Respec" folder.
NOTES AND TIPS
If you think the potions are too expensive, navigate to "media\units\items\potions" and open up the '.dat' files for the potions. Replace the number behind "VALUE:" with a lower value. Save the files and close them. You will have to run "remove_binary.dat" found inside the "Total Respec" folder for the game to notice the change.
If your stats go into the negatives, all your equipment will be returned to your inventory. When you increase your stats back above zero, you will be able to equip your items again, provided you meet their individual requirements.
Saving with negative stats doesn't cause any errors, but I do NOT recommend doing it.
Like with all mods, remember to make a backup of your saves before installing. I've tested this mod extensively and I didn't lose any data, but you never know. It's better to be safe than sorry.
Thanks go to:
-Runic/Tiamat for giving me the idea of respec potions, and for the skill respec potion. And for the game of course!
-CoolasaCucumber and Sunniex of the 'Easy Respec' mod for giving me an idea of how to reduce stat points. No offense, I just prefer this way of stat respeccing.
-Nanenj for showing how to add items to the general vendor (and by extension other spawnclasses) without overriding his inventory. (Explained in detail here: http://forums.runicgames.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=10208)
-TorchLeech and the other people in the Runic Forum thread for this mod, for helping to pinpoint the encoding bug.
-You, for downloading ths mod
Changed the way the potions are added to the 'General Items' vendor, so it doesn't conflict with other mods.
Fixed a minor typo in the readme
Remade the mod in TorchED to fix a file encoding bug
Some small improvements to the readme
Changed the potions entirely to allow for quicker respeccing of larger amounts, without removing smaller potions or adding too many potions
Added potions to respec only a single stat
Made custom icons for all my potions
Lowered the cost of all my potions
Fixed a major typo. Apparently it's 'Elixir', not 'Elixer'
Updated the descriptions of the potions
Minor changes to the Readme
Tested saving with negative stats. No damage, still not recommended.
