Steam Mods?
I see a lot of achievements and talk about installing mods for Torchlight 1. Are they posted on steam, or an external website?

Did you find any good mods that you could recommend? I'm just starting out too.

Actually, I haven't used any of the Torchlight 1 mods at all, since the setup is different with the Steam file folders, and I'm not sure what to do about the zipped paks folder found in the Steam file system. Usually you would download the mod and unzip the files to the Paks folder. In this case though the folder is already zipped so not sure if adding files to it could mess things up. I didn't really see any mod that I really wanted anyways. But, for Torchlight 2 I got the Synergies mod which is a must I find. The stuff added to the game from that mod makes the game so much better from beginning to end game including Necro class, minions, etc... If there was a mod pack like that for Torchlight 1, then ya I would really want to figure out how to install it in the zipped folder.

Oh, if anyone does have the Steam version of Torch1 and knows how to install mods to the steam file system pls let me know, thanks.

@warondar

In your Torchlight folder you have shortcut to Application Data. Go there and find "runic games/torchlight/mods". Every mod you have should be unziped there. So, you put your (unziped) folder in mods folder and thats it.

For example, my path to MerchantPack folder is:
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\runic games\torchlight\mods\MerchantPack

Thanks Ogisha. That's how it's usually done, and that what I do for any other game including Torchlight 2, but with the Steam version of Torchlight and with Windows 7 my folder location looks like this:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\torchlight\Pak
The Pak folder itself is compressed/zipped for some reason and includes only a Media folder which has tons of other folders like quests, sets, graphs, layouts, etc. The compressed Pak folder is 303Mb in size.
So, I need to unzip my downloaded Torchlight 1 mods into that compressed folder somehow I assume and that's where I'm sort of lost/worried. Not sure exactly how unzipping my mod into a compressed folder will work and which folder I should actually put it in.

Hm, you shouldn't go into your steam folder, go to AppData folder instead:
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\runic games\torchlight\mods\
AppData is hidden so you should enable hidden folders view.

I have win7 and steam Torch1 too, my steam path is same as yours (besides Pak folder, i have more folders there), but it's irrelevant for mods. This steps above worked with me for every mod...

Alright cool, I'll go check that right now then. Thanks Ogisha.
Finally found it thanks to you. The files were hidden since I hadn't changed the options to show hidden files yet on this PC.

I found a Sin MOD 1.01 pack that included all the best mods minus the Vindicator ( added that myself its great) you may or may not want the death incarnate mod you can always remove just that one it makes the game very hard unless your really geared up and want a challenge.

To get to your AppData folder all you need to do is to press the Windows key to bring the Start menu (or Start screen on Win8) then enter "%appdata%" (with no quotation marks, but make sure to include the % signs) to the search field and press Enter. This works on Vista/7/8.

1 Mod you HAVE to get is the Inventory MOD. Pet mods are cool too

I don't understand why they don't just make it like TL2 with Workshop it is so smooth it downloads and installs seamlessly. This way makes no sense to me, especially for a Steam endorsed and supported game. I dunno, just sayin.. Almost makes me want to just stick to TL2.

Yes, very true. If it hasn't been done by now, I doubt that it will be ever done. It was somewhat of a headache for me since I was new to Steam. But once I knew how thanks to the help these guys gave me, it wasn't that bad to manually install mods. Quite a few games I play don't have workshop so it's pretty common.
But again, you're right that it would make it so much easier with Workshop.
