Runic Games has revealed that their in-house dev tools titled GUTS has been released to the wild, allowing eager modders to change "almost everything about Torchlight 2, from item and skill balance, to level layouts, animations, quests, and much more." Alongside the release of the new mod tools is a new launcher which allows you to choose just which mods you'd like to have active when adventuring across the lands.
When playing modded games, you can view your mod history, any previously played mods, and the impact disabling mods may have on your character.
We've also added a special tool to GUTS designed to convert pre-GUTS mods into the official mod format, with an eye toward making the transition much easier for our ambitious early modders.
We've tried to make the process as seamless as possible, with a focus on allowing modded multiplayer games with a minimum of fuss.
Earlier in the week we saw Runic Games officially add the Steam Workshop, a further testament to the companies quite accepting profile on modding, something few games
are struggling with these days. For those looking to pimp out their game, you can check out the official blog
which offers a Q&A with tools engineer Greg Brown as well as an in-depth wiki guide which can be found here
