    New File Added: Evolved Ember

    Downloads: A new file has been added by DoctorT:

    Evolved Ember

    Current Version: 1.0.1

    This is the first of my Torchlight Evolved mods for a balanced game up to level 1000! (It will still work fine if you have the default max level of 100.)

    This mod introduces seven all-new types of gems into the game, each having 30 ranks ranging all the way up level 1000, and each rank having its own unique hand-drawn graphic. Each gem will provide a separate bonus for Armor, Weapon and Trinket, the Trinket bonuses being more adventuring-focused percentages like magic find and minion bonuses.

    This mod DOES NOT remove any of the original gems, though it is designed to replace them. However, you shouldn't see any of the original gems drop from monsters / selling in shops unless you are at a VERY high level. Any of the old gems you have will still work fine, and this shouldn't conflict with any other gem mods (except those that change availability via spawn classes).

    Gem Types Included:


    Gem Grade Progression:


    Other Info:
    * Two of the same type of gem can be combined to create the next grade, just like the originals.
    * Recipes included for 4 of the same type, in addition to "Arithmancy"-style recipes for extra convenience (two of one type, and one of the next grade; also two of one type, one of the next grade and the next grade after that). Almost 800 recipes all together!
    * Once you get to a high enough level, the lower grade gems will stop appearing. At any given level period, only eight different grades of gems will be able to spawn, and each grade has half the chance of appearing as the last grade.
    * Future updates to this mod will be released for the sake of balance, but they will be retroactive changes that will automatically fix all gems currently in your game(s).

    Version Info:
    v1.0.1 - removed stackable feature for gems (due to bug), removed "x8" recipes (no need if not stackable).

    I'm a total pack rat, so collecting new pretties is something I look forward to, and it looks like you put a lot of thought and work into this.

    just found out something interesting... you can continue to combine the gems when you get to dazzling. very sneaky and very cool, lol.

    and yes, I already have 1 dazzling of each gem type, plus an advanced level cracked topaz:

    the "2nd generation" topaz is the triangle at the bottom.

    I ran into a snag people should be aware of. if you try and socket stacked gems they go into the slot as a single gem.

    OUCH!

    Well... do the effects stack?

    *large quantities of expletives*

    Sorry guys! I just made them stackable yesterday, and I should have done more testing before release. I did NOT expect for something like this to happen... usually Torchlight handles things like this so well!

    Sigh... I just tested this out for myself, and Purple is right, it puts all the gems in the stack into the item at once. You only get bonus for one of them, and when you crush the item they all come out, but this still is a major problem.

    Do any of you guys know if it is possible to hold a button to separate the items in a stack when you move them? I've never been able to figure out how, if there is a way. If so, then I might still be able to leave them stackable, which is really convenient for combining.

    EDIT: After doing some serious searching, it looks like there really is no way to separate a stack of items once it's stacked. *sad face* This means I'm going to HAVE to change it back. No more stackable gems guys... sorry. I tried!

    Don't feel too bad Doc! It won't be the first time a beautiful mod idea slammed into the wall of the game's limit-of-modability it's still a great mod

    Evolved Ember has been updated to Version 1.0.1!

    Version Info:
    v1.0.1 - removed stackable feature for gems (due to bug), removed "x8" recipes (no need if not stackable).

    Note: To anyone who installed the original version of this mod manually (unzipped into mods folder), be sure to delete the old folder before replacing it, because I removed nearly 200 recipes, since as gems are no longer stackable, there is no need for the 8-of-a-type recipes.

    Note: Don't think that the triangles are the end! In my game I just combined two Dazzling Gems (Triangles) to unlock the next shape after that.

    Also Purple, I hope you don't mind if I use your screenshot on the mod description, at least for now.
