    What I hope to see in torchlight 2

    So I've been playing torchlight and coming to a few conclusions of what I feel the game lacks.

    1> A scoring system. Basically I come from the land of the roguelikes and fine torchlight to be a fun alternative, however hardcore mode leaves me wanting for another big aspect of the roguelike. .Scoring. Now I grant mods make scoring rather hard to do, but it would b e nice if the game had a system of keeping track of some sort of score on characters.

    2> Limited ammunition for ranged weapons.. And just in general a system for forcing you to move on. (hunger?) As many roguelikes have.

    Really the two above things do not need to be in the game, but it would be nice if they could be modded in this time around.

    Looking forward to torchlight 2!

    I agree. Limited ammunition sounds cool at first but after awhile it just become tedious to me anyway.

    Like having to eat food and go to the bathroom in the game, it's more realistic but I don't think it really adds to game play in the long run.

    Of course that's just my opinion.

    As far as scoring goes, I think they could make customs "gauntlet" mods or something that could challenge players.
    Or maybe some sort of achievement system.

    You get Achievements through Steam, though if they want to implement their own set of Achievements into the game that's fine with me, as long as they don't provide significant rewards for them.

    I'm personally against "E-PEEN Meters" (overall scoring systems) because it just needlessly inflates players' egos with useless hot air. Rarely are the truly best players actually at the top of the rankings, and it wouldn't be possible in Torchlight with the modding system anyway.

    If ammunition can be modded in then everyone could be happy! Another thing to ask about in the near future!

    True!

    Man, modding just makes this game so flexible, it's ridiculous!

    A mod with ammunition would be cool.

    That way I could try it out and not have it automatically in the main game.

    Maybe it might be cool after all.

    Modding is the answer I Was thinking too actually.

    The point of eating in roguelikes is forcing the player to advance on and challenge themselves rather than grinding against lower level creatures.

    Ammunition is just to force opportunity cost in ranged combat.

    A scoring system IMO would be an individual thing for yourself to try and beat. Like hardcore mode plus a score to see how far you could get.

    I didn't try my hand at torchlight 1 modding, but I will with torchlight 2 to try and make the perfect crawler! Muaahahahah. (Though torchlight 1 is already extremely fun.)

    Scoring system would be very nice, I think it should be implemented in the journal, and like the amount of XP, GOLD, FAME, and other aspects made changes in the score, I mean (just giving an example), if you caught a rare item fishing, you would score 100 points instead of 10-50 of regular fishes, something like that.
    Now limited ammo, well, I think it's cool too, but it should be stacked to like 9999 or even more, and should be like in SNW: Sword of the New World, now knew as Sword 2 (MMO), at the first stages of the game, ammo it's not expensive but not cheap, an average price, but after your highter level, you would be like: "Ammo? Ok. *Buys 5000 ammo of each type of weapon* Woah ammo is so cheap!" And also, stronger types of arrows/bullets, and you being able to enchant them.
