It's been a while. Too long. You have my most sincere apologies for my absence, and I should have, I know, solved this rumour a long while ago. The truth is that, while Westernesse is not a dead mod, it is on a significant hold. A lot of stuff has happened to me in my disappearance from the modding world, and things have changed, and my work for the mod has suffered for it.
I don't really know what to do now, in terms of the mod's direction, it's been so long, but I'll figure that out sometime. Just don't expect immediate action. There are other things at stake here, which means that I might not be working on it for a while yet. But I don't have any plans to abandon it.
