I'm honored to have my mods featured, but that Infomaniac mod is hardly recent haha, it's about as old as LR2 texture modding. But thanks, I'm glad someone enjoys my work. :)

You're right, sunchipp tripped me up on that one. But it was too late to correct, so I just left it in the topic :)

If you do, definitely looking forward to it! First thing I did actually was check if you were the original artist who did the set comics (which I'm sure you've seen) haha.
