Skyrim

Hey all,

I haven't been here in a while, and probably won't remain for long, but I figured I should at least give the ones that are still around a short explanation. And an official goodbye.

Back in November 2016, I used facebook as main means of communication with the core of my mods' fanbases. I used a dedicated page to interact with people and get myself motivated. I also had a Patreon going back then. It never got really big, but it was enough to keep me modding and updating PerMa and Darkest Dawn (a lesser known mod for Grim Dawn) on a monthly basis.

Anyway, facebook ended up deleting both my personal account and the page. That was a pretty low blow, following a series of pretty low blows I went through in real life. I won't repeat all that stuff here, but if you were a follower back then, you may remember a thing or two. Losing the page killed my remaining drive completely. I couldn't muster the strength for a serious attempt to rebuild the community.

Some of the battles from back then are still going on. I really enjoyed the time I spent here - all the way from back when SkyRe had a dozen dedicated endorsers/commenters that I all knew by name, until way after things blew up and I had a million downloads. The journey was fun. It's an experience that definitely left a mark. But as my life is right now, and most likely will remain for the next few years, there's no room for modding.

As great as it is, it also has a lot of soul-suckery going on. I'm not someone who can do things casually. I get obsessed. I learned that, and I do it with everything I like. Being obsessed with something that is as taxing as this doesn't leave room for much else. While I was modding actively, I neglected a lot of things, and while a lot of good came from, I also caused damage.

If there's a talented soul among you that officially wants to pick up the torch and fix the remaining bugs, feel free to contact me - either here via PM or on facebook (search for a guy called "Surinoshino" with a bird pic - no, not a real account). Or maybe Steam.

Most important info at the end: Some people delete their mods when they decide to go, but I'll leave mine up. A surprising amount of people still seem to download and enjoy them, so there's no need to take that away.

With that said, this is goodbye now. Thanks for everything.

Fun fact - I work as a software developer nowadays, and used the mods as reference work. It worked despite the garbage code in my patchers ;)
Hopefully HR never ends up checking my FAQs.

A: I saw a mention of SkyRe in the comments section of a random youtube video, and it hit me in the feels.

      Fare ware, friend. Would,be great to,have perma on skyrim se but skse seems far far away if ever.

      In any case, I,appreciate all your mods and they made skyrim much much better.

      Most mod users, and most are great people, just don't know what it takes to mod longerm.

      Thanks for making Skyrim a better and more replayable game with your overhaul and associated mods. Wishing you all the best with your future endeavours.

      (It''s cheesy but appropriate)
      Live Long, and Prosper! ????

    Way late but i just wanted to say that your work here is incredible. You are responsible for many hours of me being able to escape my own rough patches in life. And by the amount of engagement here its safe to say im not the only one with this experience. I hope that things eventually got better for you. It sucks that it happened and im not sure if you ever look here but if you do i just wanted to say thank you for making my favorite game even more amazing. And your work here is indicative to your ability for excellence. Take care

    T3nd0, I'm a 42 years old cook/it tech and i feel the urge to tell you just one thing. The destination is a grave noone knows for certain what lies beyond it. That is to say the journey is all we got. But what does that mean ? The quality of life's experiences, that simple. The battles, the victories, the ice cream and hot dog, the kissing of the wife, the hugging of the children. Life's tribulations and especially life's joys. So, wherever you are, just fight to make your life as beautiful as possible because that is the only thing that matters. And above all, love. This is the best feeling emotion of a human's life. So love with all your heart, and don't be afraid to be a little vulnerable. As for modding, who knows? Maybe life's roads will get you back to modding years later, maybe not. New games would have popped up by then. We, the aware gamers that know the kind of passion go into a mod, thank you for what you have given us, and send you our wishes of a good life for you. That summs it up. Stay strong, find good people, because they are all around us, just need to go outside and shake a hand, and find pleasure in life. If all falls one day, see the doctors. If you are down, find a soul. And love. Thusly, you will deffinitely be well. All the best to you and thank you once again !

    Hello from 2020, just started a playthrough with PerMa, it's still my favorite perk overhaul, and I think it complements the Enai suite even better than his perk mods. No other mod author could really match your flair, at least for me.

    Hope you're doing well man, we all still love you.

    Hey T3ndo, its 2018 and we still think about you and Skyredone. They took down Unoffical Skyrim Patch, so I might do a patch that makes Skyre with the updated USLEEP. Thank you for everything though.

    This may not be the right place to ask this, but I have given up all hope elsewhere.

    For the life of me, I can not get some things to work in perkus maximus. Mainly the crossbow upgrades, I have searched google, bing and yahoo trying to find a fix.

    last ditch effort here guys, help, please.

    This is a bit late, but I felt like saying it anyway.

    It's sad that we won't get more of your great work anymore (or as much if you suddenly decide to come back), but if it's interfering with your life then I am happy to say goodbye than to hear someone whose work I enjoy is becoming miserable due to it.

    Also thank you for leaving the mods up, I find it understandable for modders to remove their mods since even with spotty reasons it's still their own work and they should have the right to remove it if they want, but I think we really do appreciate you still leaving them up for the fans and even potential future fans of your work.

    Good luck with whatever you're doing now/what you're going to be doing in the future, and thank you for all your hard work
