**Please rate (especially if you like it) these mods so other people can see them. There are lots of subs, but less than 2% of subscribers have rated. Please support the modding community by rating good mods!**

Both parts of Enhanced Retex (A & B). Enhanced Retex is a complete re-work of every texture in game. The purpose is to improve the fidelity and detail of the in-game textures without losing the developer's vision and art direction. This mod seeks to improve without over-sharpening and keeping a unified theme of artwork. This is not a drastic deviation from vanilla, but worth every bit of bandwidth to download.

The mod is split into two parts:
Part a: World-builders (all level-building contruction items, props, surfaces, etc), models (player, NPC, monster, weapons, items, etc), assorted files and base models (shared textures, generic equipment items by level range, etc, extras from levelsets).
Part b: Props and assorted textures that tie together all other textures.

Please install both parts to completely revamp your game.

If you like (or dislike the mod) please give it a rating, make it a favorite, add it to your collections, or offer your feedback on where it needs improvement. This is a work in progress, and as such, I can often get fixes or tweaks out in a reasonable time.

If you notice this mod updating frequently, it is due to another user identifying a bug, glitch, fix or other improvement. I don't patch for the sake of patching, but to improve the mod. More patches means I've been playing the game less, and I don't want to do that.

Enjoy!

I actually had to uninstall GUTS and TL2, then reinstall and update both. Not sure if it worked for mac and linux, but at least the files are back up.

looks like it's working so far!

Can you uninstall GUTS and reinstall it?

There's a chance that the issue has been resolved with Enhanced Retex disappearing. I'm still getting a run-time error with GUTS, but I accepted Steam's new workshop terms, so it's possible that the update is now live. If the files are still gone, then everything is screwed because I can't get GUTS to run properly with my mod any more.

I'm very sorry to hear that. Thank you for your efforts!

I tried to push an update to include Mac and Linux users as I've been catching a lot of grief lately about the mods not working on those platforms. In the process the GUTS modding tool crashed into an unrecoverable state, and apparently deleted the mod files : /.

I'm going to have to figure out how to fix the GUTS tool so I can get the packages back up, I suppose.

hmm. Did Enhanced Retex part 1 and 2 go away on steam workshop? I mean, i see the collection here, but clicking on either of them shows they're either hidden or something else.

I'll have a look and see if the GUTS application will allow me to set those directories. I would think that the workshop would install them in the correct place, since the only thing that is different is the two folders before Runic Games. Everything else is the same. Maybe I just need to re-open GUTS and enable Mac/Linux support. I'll look into it.

Do you need help with the file structures for Mac? The base directory for TL2 mods on a Mac is:

~/Library/Application Support/Runic Games/Torchlight 2/mods

~/Library/Application Support/Runic Games/Torchlight 2/mods/enhanced retex a
~/Library/Application Support/Runic Games/Torchlight 2/mods/enhanced retex b

I'd love to see this work on my Mac.

I'm pretty sure it isn't compatible because I don't have a mac, and don't know what the folder and file structure are for a mac at all when it comes to torchlight.

I don't know of anything else like this, because I'm the only person that I know of that's gone through and tweaked every single texture in the game.

I wish I knew how to make it work for a mac, but, honestly, I hate those things. :P

Thanks for trying to use my mod though. When I first made it, a mac version was just a glimmer for some future date, and I didn't look at compatibility issues for a mac.
