Just to clarify before it gets spun too much.
Lex banned me from #minecraftforge, not all things Forge.
I still consider him a friend, and don't want him getting hatemail/etc. He still has yet to speak to me however.
Last night left me questioning why I do this all, but I committed to finishing EE3 and I will do so. If you watch GitHub you will still find me active there.
This is probably going to be an unpopular opinion but damn dude modding is a hobby, if you are feeling you have lost your enjoyment of modding, stop forcing yourself to continue when you are not enjoying the creative process. It can only lead to burnout for you and a mod that is a hurried incomplete bug ridden mess for us, not knocking your skills as a dev, just stating that if something you do in your spare time feels like a chore you won't feel as driven to put in the 30 hours to find that last damn bug.
Put development of the mod on hiatus and ask someone (or do it yourself, whichever) to maintain version compatibility (mostly so you can easily pick up development again if you desire to, without having to update first) but don't force yourself to work on something that should be an enjoyable passtime. Like I said probably an unpopular opinion but screw it you feeling driven by a commitment in a hobby is not something any rational (or even irrational) fan of your mod (or rather the potential of this mod) should consider even slightly within the realms of reason.
