    The Torchlight 2 MMO Project

    Greetings!

    We’re a team of two developers that some of you might recognize from before. We previously worked on a project that set out to recreate the entire Torchlight client from scratch. Runic approved it and receiving their blessing ment a lot to us. You can read more about that project in the original topic.

    We now reach out to Runic and the community again to announce our new project. We’re creating an MMO version of Torchlight 2. We’ve been working on it for about a year. We started by recreating the Torchlight 2 client and then spent the majority of the time creating a server for it. The server architecture has been stressed and proven to support a great amount of players.

    We would like to know if there is any demand for such a project. We have great respect for Runic and very much enjoyed both of their games and this is our way to give back to the community and keep this fantastic title alive.

    By the fans for the fans.

    Re: ★ Torchlight II - MMO Version ★

    This is impressive! I had really hoped that something like this might come about. If you can have the administrator of a server determine what mods are applied to the game it could mean people could create entire new worlds and everyone would be on equal footing. I'm assuming the saves are server-side?

    I'm totally behind you for any kind of support you need. I might suggest changing the name though, since some day Runic will make their own Torchlight MMO. Maybe something like "The Torchlight 2 MMO Project?"

    What a motivating reply. You're correct, everything is stored server-side. Glad to know we have your support. We agree that the title could be misleading, could you possibly change the topic subject to what you've suggested?

    Oh, and I'd love to help! I'm no coder and I'm not the fastest worker around, but I'm pretty good with art-stuff

    Re: The Torchlight 2 MMO Project

    In this update we've finished working on a parser that imports levelsets layouts from GUTS to our client. We're then using the imported data to create our navigation mesh to use as server-side collision checks.

    Sounds pretty cool! The Enclave looks nice from that distance as well

    I'm the second developer on this project. I have recently been working on a specialized logo.

    We're eager to have it ready as well! What kind of art-stuff do you do? We do need help with such.

    Will look even better once we load in effects. It's great also because everyone with experience in GUTS can now help us create content if they wish.

    Just in case you didn't know, Justinian is the developer at Runic who created the networking/multiplayer code for the game.
