I am looking for a way to easily change profiles between three environments with different monitor setups, I regularly plug my laptop in.

Currently I have 3 monitors.xml files, that I switch each time via cli, but this extension:

looks perfect for my usecase, but is not maintained anymore.

Any known alternatives?

Lacking an extension, you could brew a little dialog yourself using Zenity (installed by default on Ubuntu), or using Rofi or dmenu, in a script that can be summoned using an application launcher (Zenity, less "natural" for rofi/dmenu) or using a custom shortcut key.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
