I had thought that taking the D20 Modern approach to Shadowrun would be a better take on things. While the skills are closer to the setting the mechanics are still borked. At the time they worked, but looking at the D20 Modern stuff now is just silly.
Taking D20 Modern and adjusting it to a smoother ruleset ala D&D 5e would solve the problem. This would be workable for Shadowrun and other modernish settings as well.
In short, my efforts in this hobby would probably be better set adjusting D&D 5e to have some elements of D20 Modern. There’s still a bit of work, but once I’ve got that completed it would make running Shadowrun easier.
Or I could just be chasing my tail.
