Glad that at least some of your drive has survived. You got to hate losing personal stuff that hard to remember how to replicate. Though I was wondering since you're considering to spruce up old animation packs that you might also consider fixing up some other amazing mods that I really miss using that no one else has updated like Triple Barrel Loch-n-Load or Iron Bomber Fix that works with warpaints, custom animations and the inspection animation? (Newguy111's Demoman's Weaponry Improvement Pack doesn't work with custom animations so ain't too big fan of that) But I would be really grateful and appreciative of that.
UPDATE: I was able to recover some of my drive, other parts were annihilated by the drive's death. Luckily Most of my mod files were in the same place and were recovered.
Still, the previous post remains true. TF2 has and always will be a huge part of my childhood, and I'm glad to have had as much of an impact on the TF2 modding scene as I've had. With time things change, and sadly I've fallen out of love with the game. I think it started happening after Meet your Match killed community servers.
I'm currently in college, so I don't have as much free time as I used to and I have to get better at managing what time I have. While I no longer have it in me to make fresh, original mods, I have considered sprucing up some of my old animation packs just for the sake of it. However, with the way I work on stuff and college, I cannot promise anything.
Due to an unfortunate HDD death, all of my mod files have been banished to the Shadow Realm. Personal attempts to check the drive for any accessible data have been futile, so unless Data Recovery Services can recover my files, all my mods are to be considered officially discontinued/unsupported. I can still technically fix already released mods by decompiling and recompiling them, but I cannot improve them or update them in their current state as I no longer have the files. WiP mods I had started are just straight up cancelled as I don't have any backups for them and any semblance of a working version was deleted alongside with the source files. The only thing I plan on keeping updated is SCA, as I believe everyone should have the capability to create their own animations with ease.
I'm sure to most of you this comes to no surprise since I pretty much stopped modding for TF2 over two years ago at this point, simply making this post for anyone holding out hope. I had considered coming back out of complete boredom, but this and the lack of interest I find in the game (or gaming in general) nowadays puts the final nails in the coffin. I apologize to anyone waiting for a release/update to their favorite mod, but I simply do not have it in me to continue modding TF2 in it's current state. I might return once the Comic #7 or the Heavy Update come out, even if just for a bit, but until then, it was a pleasure providing my creations to you all.
While I won't be creating anything anytime soon, I'll still check in time to time on the site, as I do like seeing what mods people come up with (unfortunately things seemed to have slowed down, to no surprise). If you have any individual concerns about my mods or modding for TF2 in general, feel free to reach out to me on Steam or Discord ([N-cognito]#0099).
EDIT: Also, if one of my mods breaks and you want to update it yourself just let me know before hand!
