I've been having something like that, too. Building a modpack, with a fancy ballistic gun selection and pretty models (Scooby Doo's and Steve-O's are good), plus cutting-edge FSO features is fun. But I'm rarely playing these days, unless a campaign is very well made and novel in some way. This might be because I pretty much moved on to simulators, basic FS gameplay, being rather simplistic in comparison is of little interest to me. You might've noticed I stopped volunteering for betas lately, though I'm still modding from time to time, and even FREDed a mission lately.
