Yeah I guess Skinning/Modding etc is not something people are looking for enough. I remember a poll from few years back where they asked if you use a custom skin, stock skin or didn't even know you can use custom skins with Lotro. The results were that the major part of the playerbase didn't even know the option existed. Sad that Turbine didn't ever advertise this part of the client much, if at all. Like that there's featured player every now and then on the front page there could have been featured mod too, but no. Basically only time they mentioned about it was when F2P client was about to go live and they advertised with big letters that Lua is coming to Lotro.
Turbine still doesn't realize how important funtion UI modding is, it shows from the lack of investments to it.
Not much point updating skins anymore if they are not willing to support the community. And while time passes by modders move on other projects day by day so eventually it truly is going to be a dead part of the community. Sad but .. well maybe SWTOR will have an UI that can be modded..
Thanks for the support people.
