@wrangmog No problem. Here's a tip. The .blend1 and the Autosave files are different. The autosave file are stores in AppData folder and it also keeps a few versions back of your project. The .blend1 apparently is kind of a temp file blender uses before writing on your file when you clic save. I have found out that sometimes, the .blend1 is missing or outdated and have been able to recover a newer version of my file from the AutoSave. Just something to keep in mind.
@wrangmog looks really good man, i definitly gotta look someday to rebuild mine
.blend1 is a backup made automatically by blender, you can also set a timer for auto backups in the users preference menu, (ctrl+alt+u) i've set mine to 5 mins and also made blender automatically restore my last open file on boot, wich has saved me countless times in the past
