An important announcement concerning the future of this mod.

So, i've been thinking about this for a while, and i've decided that this will be the best course of action for both the mod itself and me.

I've worked on this mod for four years. The mod has gone through many and many redesigns and changes, what this mod looked like back in 2018 looks completely different to what it looks like now. The iteration of the mod that you know started in October 2020, and through those almost two years i've only released a demo with three levels. That's all that was made when the demo released, and now after almost a year since the demo's released there's been barely really any progress made. I know i showed off A LOT of stuff in the progress updates since the demo's release, but the mod's much less complete than you think.

Lately i've been starting to feel that the mod's grown too ambitious for its own good, i had a ton of stuff planned for the mod, but i'm starting to feel that i won't be able to do all of it within a reasonable timespan. And now, the biggest issue - burnout. Burnout sucks, and i've been starting to get burned out and frustrated from working on this mod, and working with the GoldSRC engine in general.

This week has also been absolute hell for me so far, for reasons i won't mention here.

I've decided that putting the mod on an indefinite hiatus will be the best course of action, i hope you understand my decision, and hopefully this won't be the last you'll see of WAR:TSO.

Truckride!

I myself know about burnouts firsthand, and I understand that this is a ****** feeling, I hope that after a while you will remember this mod and continue to develop it with renewed vigor.

I wish you all the best.

Burnout is a project killer. Certainly a shame to read this, but it's better to step away rather than force yourself to continue. That'll only make you resent it.

Hey can you at least consider releasing to us what you do have in the current state along with all the assets? I wouldnt want this to go to waste when other modders can use it

i didn't say the mod's been scrapped and cancelled, just put on a hiatus for a while.
if i did cancel the mod by any chance (which i probably won't) i would have released the assets and stuff

Nothing wrong with stepping away from a project for a while. Just do what makes you happy!

Just do what you gotta do buddy
It’s your decision and yours alone don’t let others pressure you into overworking yourself

With that being said I do hope you’ll come back one day and complete your mod
