D20 Modern: A Week Break

I'm going to be utmost honest with you gals and guys, I'm... getting a little bored and uninterested because I'm only remodeling and retexturing. All the while maintaining the idea of "half-new and half-old" look. I believe, if the d20 Modern Team returns, they should have the honor of remastering their own work. Flawed it may be, but it stands in the forefront as an example that any era can be possible. Therefore, I’ve been yearning to create my own modern tileset in the last four weeks. I want to become another pioneer and to uphold these kind of ideas.
 
Maybe you gals and guys may help me with my decision:
Should I continue to remodel the old modern tileset? If I continue, my interest will decline and it'll be mental torture.
 
Or...
 
Should I create my own modern tileset? If I do create my own, I want give you gals and guys something new right out of the box!
 
And I'll leave it here. I really want input from gals and guys. Until next week, I may explain and come to my ultimate decision.

And doing both is impossible, why? Yes it will add greatly to the time to completion. Why not take a break to get on with your own tileset, leaving notes for yourself about the state of play with the remodelling of the old stuff? I am suggesting this because you are bound to get to a point where you think you have got stuck and don't know where to go next. It happens to all of us at some point. When you reach that point, go back to the remodelling if for no other reason than to clear your head of the frustration that will have built up. When that happens go back to your own tileset.

Just a thought.

Yeah, I agree with Tarot - it sounds like you could probably do with a break, so just take a break and do something else for a while!

But it doesn't need to be a big life decision, and it doesn't need to be a permanent change of projects. This should be a fun creative hobby, not something that's causing you mental torture, so it doesn't need to be a dramatic choice that takes a week to decide. Just put this to one side and start playing about with something else, if that's what you want to do.

(And honestly, if you embark on a new tileset, you should probably do it because you've got a great idea for something specific, not just because you want to 'own' a project, right? That seems likely to lead right back to burnout.)

Yeah, just do whatever you want, whatever you like to do, whatever makes you happy. You are not obliged to do anything and I see no point in doing something that simply isn´t fun for you.

We discussed this in an earlier blog post you made and I was under the impression you had decided not to go ahead with a retroactively usable upgrade on the existing tileset and create your own. So I'm a little confused and I would honestly like to know for sure if you plan to produce an upgrade that would work with the existing tileset, or branch out alone with an entirely new one. If the original is not going to be upgraded then then that's fine, I will attempt to make some extensions and adaptations myself, but a halfway house means I or anyone I can ask to work on my behalf won't be able to reliably.

An entirely new tileset that won't overwrite or replace is still a wonderful idea but a clear decision would help my own planning enormously.

To be honest I don't even know what is d20, but I read the post. I recommend that you do whatever makes you happy and entertained, don't torture yourself in your own spare time because not only will it make you feel bad, but it will also affect your work.

So go perhaps it's time to stop fixing someone else's work and start with ideas of your own, wish I'm sure will be good :)
