I've been playing Starbound again for awhile, just casually. But it made me revisit my old Modding Page, back from 2014. I'd released my Mod only a few days into the release so I had a pretty good head start. I slowly gained downloads upto roughly 2000 I think. Its not much, but it was the people who i'd discovered. There were regular commenters on what I was doing all the time. I use to post pictures of little objects and features i'd be putting in.
But for some unknown reason i'd left the Mod when I was hitting an all time high. Right now i'm curious on what would have happened if i'd continued on. Maybe it would have slowly gotten bigger and more expansive? maybe even involving me transferring it over to Steam Workshop.
But then maybe it would have amounted to nothing and my Mod crashed down. But alas we will never know.
Part of me wants to pick up the Mod again and restart it, giving small little objects and additions to make the game slightly more personalized. I want to start programming again and try to expand what I know. Maybe this is the way to return?
