It's been a long time since my last post, and for that I'm sorry. I've struggled for a long time with what to say, and nothing ever seems to be quite right.
Ever since I announced the Legacy update, I've pushed transparency and honesty with my community. That ideal isn't something that I can "switch off" because it's momentarily inconvenient, and I value the community too much to risk on pride or vanity, so today I'm forced to bring you some less-than-ideal news.
LOTD Plus might be my guide, but it's for the users. With that in mind, consider this post my promise to you that LOTD Plus will always keep our community in the loop from this point onward.
We opened a Pandora's box of sorts with our last update when we switched from Immersive College of Winterhold to Obscure's College of Winterhold. We made that switch because I received enough prodding from the community that I finally gave it a chance.
Now that Wabbajack has had a bit more time to mature and after a fair amount of prodding from a member of the community whom I trust, I finally decided that it was time to do a more technical, less emotional review of their offering.
Note that the following is my opinion, and it is completely possible that an exception will be made in the future if/when Nexus ever gets around to finishing an "official" system, on the condition that it actually allows authors to opt-out of inclusion.
When I finally decided that STEP wasn't the right home for my guide and chose the name LOTD Plus, the need for financial assistance became more apparent, but it still took quite a while for me to pull the trigger on Patreon.
Today I am pleased to announce that LOTD Plus is officially open for business. It's far from finished, but it's stable and certainly usable.
I know I said I probably wouldn't post much, so this posting twice in one day thing is pretty impressive. The sad fact of the matter is that despite being a decent developer, I can't do design worth a crap.
Before I get started, I want to state for the record that I have no clue where I'm going with the blog portion of this site. It may end up getting quite a bit of use discussing mods that I am considering including, new content and the like. It may end up serving as nothing more than a location to post updates to the guide. Only time will tell.
