"UrbaNebula-a.k.a-monster_urby" said:Truth.I'm beginning to shift into my late twenties and I'm so sad I've only now began to fully be aware of the fact that we're excellent planning and idea-generating machines but shit executioners. There are a plethora of reasons on my side(probably just human nature) but also because having a job steals so much time from the day from you that you absolutely must plan ahead to do stuff if you ever want something to be done. I imagine in your case, having a family and whatnot, it makes things even more complicated. I've imagined several projects I wanted to start and even a few I'm actively "working" on, and the failure to see progress is one of the biggest generators of depression for me.
It's getting to the point where I'm getting a load of new ideas for projects that I couldn't fit into The Core (not that I am looking to expand it any further, I'm all about finishing up what we have at this point.)
I've got an idea for a new mod I'd like to make and I've had the lore in my head for a few months. A whole new universe to play with, rather than using Valve's. Thing is, it will definitely need custom coding which means I would either need to learn myself or take on a coder to help me get things set up. Not something I am willing to even look into until The Core is out the door.
But then I've had another revelation, but this one I'm coming slower to terms with. Perhaps everybody has a rhythm, and no matter how much you want to accomplish, you just can't do more than... you can. Accepting that can probably ease the anxiety.
Perhaps you've got a different rhythm Urby. Doesn't mean you're not gonna finish this, but the fact that you didn't is totally understandable.
but yeah you should finish it
