This is a long overdue post, let's have a loose discussion about this. What do you think are the core bricks that prevent WeiDU successor or alternative?
My own would be:

- It's too late for a new thing to attract attention, no matter how good it would be.

- It's too much work to learn new, shiny things even just for fun.

- WeiDU interoperability with dialogs added from other mods, you either recreate it or you can forget about adding cross-mod content.

- WeiDU backup system, you either recreate it completely or fail to uninstall/reinstall a mod.

- Lack of accompanying tools that are specifically created for WeiDU.

- Lack of a mod manager that can install WeiDU mods along with mods that are using other 'modding frameworks'.


Those are some loose examples from my memory. I'm not sure about the weight of each thing, or how it affects the subject and I would love to hear your thoughts!
