Thanks for the reply. I am still around and modding, however this mod hasn't gotten very much love over the years. I started work on "More Swords 3" which is a conceptual remake to make the mod more fun and interesting, however this remake has taken a lot longer than I expected. I've recently announced in an update to the main thread that I will be working on More Swords: Legacy, which will be a direct port of the existing version for those who have nostalgia for the current version of the mod. I am hoping to release Legacy some time before the end of June. It will be released on CurseForge, and I will be announcing the update on Twitter when it happens.
Do not worry! There are many modders outside who gave up on their projects coz too many time has passed... But not YOU! More Swords was one of ever first mod I used when I just started to play Minecraft, like memories So don't give up! You'd rather spend a bit more time, but will make a quality thing at the end! Also, the people gave you many ideas and questions over this tread from all that time, tho it might be a good idea to go through if you gathering more ideas/updates! Tho.
I will wait for that release as long as I have to.
