Hi there ...>_<
I knoooow. I know I am a terrible person. Work is eating my modding time and when I do have time to mod, I start new WIPs instead of finishing and releasing the old ones. Sadly, that is how my modding mind works - its like a pinball. I see something shiny/interesting and my modding muse goes all "Oooh look, I could use this" and I experiment with it.
Anyway!! Here's a list of my current WIPs:
- Two different types of amulets with 30+ gemstone textures each
- Another amulet which is a request fill ;)
- a set of "lore friendly" female wigs (which includes long hairs, some with braids in them, mostly converted from the sims3
- Wisteria trees (a weeping willow tree port from Skyrim which I am retexturing)
- the project that I like to call the "giant goddess temple" - a port of a Tera online Temple-ish building, which I put on a floating island. Sadly, all of the scaling is out of whack, so that the building, the stairs, etc. are more suitable for giants than normal Oblivion characters XD
- my ancient, ever growing weapon set, which will include weapon meshes from games like Tera, Bless, SMITE, Hyrule Warriors etc etc. Sigh. Even thinking about making an esp for this hoard of weapons is giving me nightmares.
WIPs in general don't get released, because I am a victim of severve modding OCD and releasing unfinished stuff makes me all twitchy. But I am thinking about adding a "quick release" section which will include random meshes I ported without esps - so basically resources. Y/N?
Eeehhh. So. This is a fickle thing for me. I think that is a topic every modder has to deal with. For me, its like this:
I am not stopping you from requesting stuff. The problem is: I am not the fastest modder in the world and making you wait for stuff seems unfair from my point of view. Also: My modding muse is not very reliable, so sometimes I just sit there and stare at the computer screen and NOTHING happens.
The general problem with requests for me is: if something catches my interest, I am all on board.
But as a modder, I tend to put my attention on stuff that I genuinely like. If for example an armor form another game looks hideous to me, I am not inclined to port it. Same goes for some sims3 hairs which I think are terrible. I rarely bow to the general oppinion and go all "Yeah, many people will like this, so imma port it." Nnnnope. Modding eats a lot of time, so I prefer to spend it with stuff I WOULD USE MYSELF IN MY OWN GAME. The rest... eh. Gets shoved to the end of the WIP list.
I rarely say NO to a request. But I can not promise when and how requests are fulfilled xD I am terribly sorry about that.
Regarding asks for unreleased stuff and me sharing my stuff in general:
So. There is one thing I need to adress I guess. Before Oblivion, I have modded for several other games, including the sims2. And maybe this sims2-modder time in general has turned me into the kind of modder I am now, because my motto is:
SHARING IS EVERYTHING!
To me, there is nothing cooler than seeing my mods in other people's games via screenshots or videos. It's this "LOOK MA I AM ON TV!" kind of feeling that makes me giddy like a noob and fills my little modder heart with happyness.
So creating tons of stuff and sitting on it without sharing is not my kind of thing, if you have ever asked for any of my mods via PM or email, you might already know this. In 99 % of those cases my answer was "Yeah sure here you go xD"
But. And yeah, there is always a but XD
There are 2 exceptions to this rule.
1.) Experimental garbage
A lot of my modding time is wasted by me trying stuff out and experimenting. I want to find out if some things can be done, specifically if I CAN DO THEM. Sadly, the results of those experiments may look good in screenshots, but are unusable in "everyday" gaming situations. And since I have serious modding OCD, I refuse to release stuff that is not 100 % tested and working. Hence, garbage pile.
2.) Stuff I made for my own characters
Yeeees, I am one of THOSE PEOPLE. Just look at my character page/list/chart whatever you call it. My characters are riddled with custom content I made especially for them because the word customize is my favorite word in the English language. Still, a lot of my characters are available as companions, so I am not all "GRRR, mine!"
Alas, there are a selected few of my characters which have not been shared as of yet and probably never will be. That includes Alba, Ljus and a few others. And their custom content. I am not saying its never gonna happen, but at the moment all my characters are "works in progress" and nnnng... mine XDD There it is. Sorry >_<
