Then create something you like. Something you deem better
It just plugs in what's trending, so people are enjoying it.
I have been, actually. not published however because I feel theyre often not good enough to bother with packaging for others-- plus I do a lot of published work in the minecraft community already as both a texture artist, designer, and modpack creator. :/ I know youre giving a boilerplate response there but it sorta dodges what my initial assertion was questioning; What happened to the level of quality in our community and why is it this is what the site promotes?
Heck, piddling about digging I happened to find by chance a mod that was built with far greater love and time spent-- a mod that simply adds recipes and food from Fallout 76, adapted for 4 and modified to fit lore. this kid probably spent weeks on puzzling this out and hand placing recipes at loot sites, building models, and skinning stuff-- and theres barely 1k downloads, and barely 100 endorsements.
he could have sliced and diced up his recipes into different packs and slapped some stolen art assets with big tits on it and bam- endless endorsements and frontpage. f***, even going through the guys upload history, he made quite a few really nice little mods and patches with hardly any sort of social encouragement or reward. maybe as a result of such he faded off; his last upload being in jan of 2019, with a single statement in the bio saying 'dont DL my mods, theyre trash'. while I have my issues with the sloot stuff, no contributer should be made to feel so put out that they think their contributions are not worth consideration (within reason)
we lose talent from this community everyday, and this sorta thing feels like it encourages it; or more succinctly said the fact that solid project content is depreciated over exploitative 'sex sells' kinds of content. it discourages more varied and deeper content creators from contributing anymore.
mind you im saying this as someone who draws smut for a living-- its not out of any remote likening to prudishness that I'm bemoaning the f4 modding community's promotion of seemingly only shallow sloot content.
