The Question is a simple one just the answer isn't.
First I have to say, that I'm new to modding and very unexperienced,
but from the very beginning I simply can't understand why Mods have to die,
although most of them are really great artworks.
One of the first thoughts I had on, was the maybe missing respect of gamers, usually
playing commercial games, towards a mod.
In my opinion only people, modding or creating games theirselfes or even tried to do so
can really understand what it means to enjoy little steps and projects and if a presented mod isn't "up-to-date" most people just pass by to the next one.
And I think this is where a mod dies.
Hardly every mod shown here on moddb, is worth playing even there's only an alpha or beta.
Nevertheless the most important thing is to STICK to a mod you like, to love it and fight for its
That pushs devs to keep up their work and supporting their stuff and maybe
someone, sometime sets up a league, newsletter or whatever for especially this mod.
What I mean in fac is a community not for all mods but for the individuals you like.
Think about and watch details.. : )
