Torchlight Frontiers player releases online fort-planning tool – time to map out your base

    
7

One of the features that rocketed Torchlight Frontiers to the top of my watch list last year was the promise of a type of player housing in the form of fully customizable forts. In fact, when I tried out the alpha earlier this spring, it was one of the first things I squeed over when I accidentally moved a rock… and freaked out when I realized everything in the base could be rearranged to my liking and enhanced with my crafting skill.

So if you’re likewise enthused at the prospect of having your own custom territory inside an MMOARPG, take a peek at this community project that popped up on our radar today. PWE and Echtra Games promoted a fort-building tool built by a player named Papi and hosted on TorchlightFansite.com – you can literally zoom around the base fort, place items wherever you like according to the crafting skill level you set, calculate the cost of those items, and then save it all to import back next time. Definitely an awesome tool for building your home away from home without being in the game! Anybody given this one a spin yet?

Sounds interesting so far. I usually struggle to keep my interest on diablo-like games for long(Marvel Heroes the only exception) but this seems it will have a lot more to do than the typical one

I really hope they bring out a mac and linux client at launch. Just like TL and TL2.

Can you make an elaborate Train Yard with your Engineer?

I have not followed this game, but I have to wonder what the functionality of a fort here is? Is it a standard player home hub that looks like a fort, or does it get used for defense as well? Vs npc waves? Vs players?

This reminds me of the Earth & Beyond Space Ship and Character creator toll that was put out before the game launched. You built your ship and characters and import them into the game when it launched.

This game is shaping up to be something really good.

Please let the monetisation not suck, please let the monetisation not suck, please let the monetisation not suck ……

Is it at least Buy to Play, if it’s straight up F2P that’s never a good sign?

Welp nvm I just saw it’s PWE so it’s kind of hit or miss, I’d be more concerned about the content faucet being turned to a trickle after the first year or two to keep the player pipes from freezing.
