Trykz Posted November 29, 2017 Share Posted November 29, 2017 I've been a member here since 2011. I lurked prior to that for a couple of years before I actually tried my hand at modding and posting some stuff at Nexus shortly after Skyrim's release. I left Nexus when I finally realized that I couldn't really "show off" my creations without being ridiculed by some of their supporters, reported for far less than what I see posted there today, or threatened with the ban hammer for standing up to them, and decided that I would much prefer the more relaxed atmosphere that this site had to offer. Equally as much, the appreciative nature of it's members for the time and effort I expended creating the mods I've released here. Now I realize that some custom races and armor conversions may not be the greatest of accomplishments when compared to what I've seen others release here. But I worked hard on them, and never once expected anything in return apart from the appreciation I'd come to know from those who tried and liked them. And to those users, I will be eternally grateful. I've also seen my fair share of modders retire from the scene over the past 6+ years. Not just for Skyrim, but for Oblivion and Fallout as well. And I hope their current endeavors find them well. At this time, I'm currently conflicted with deciding the fate of my own future in modding. There are often times when I just can't bring myself to load up the Creation Kit for either Skyrim OR Fallout 4. But then, there are other times when an idea pops into my head, and I simply can't stop until it's at least close to what I envisioned. So for the past couple of weeks I've just been messing around with updating/porting some of my older Skyrim mods to SSE. And then, sometimes, it's a chore to even load up a game just to play or test a mod. And when I load up a game and see "Creation Club News", and most of the time, I find myself logging back out. So there it is..... the "acceptance" problem. Do I accept that sometimes things change in ways I may not like? Or do I accept that sometimes things change in such a manner that they are simply "no longer for me"? Whatever the answer is, I suppose I'll come to that conclusion soon enough. But until I reach it, I'll be returning to my aforementioned "lurking"...... Thanks for reading, Trykz Link to comment
