It's probably already obvious by now but I just felt an "official" confirmation would be more… polite?
I used to be undecided about the new version's fate and occasionally thought I would eventually release it. However I lost interest in the modding & mapping world, or rather I do not want to cultivate this interest. I've now got bigger priorities and time's running out!
I suppose it might be helpful for other modders to know that I was posting screenshots of the new release in a very early stage in an attempt to get feedback that would motivate me. Looking at it now, I think it's a bad idea. Being only motivated by others' feedback and comments only makes you feel like you're forced to do it, and this is neither motivating nor pleasant. So take this as some sort of advice if you want to!
