    ModCast #2: "Accent Support Group"

    The second episode of ModCast is here, an official podcast of Apolyton Civilization Site (ACS). "Accent Support Group" (47m34s) features the four core panelists Wouter "Locutus" Snijders, Tony "GarretSidzaka" Kiehl, Kenneth "Impaler[WrG]" Ferland and Oscar "Elhoim" Velzi.

    ModCast is a bi-weekly ~45-minute audio production of Apolyton Civilization Site and is an ongoing effort to give the Civ community an interactive voice on Civilization modding; its sibling show PolyCast focuses on Civ strategy. To date, ACS is the only community on the web to produce its own Civilization podcasts.


    Summary of Topics:

    - 01m13s | News
      We call on modders to be guest co-hosts on the show.
    - 04m43s | Artist Sketchpad
      We discuss the Pierre Trudeau leaderhead (or is it Christopher Walken?) by bernie14, Grave's Saddam Hussein leaderhead (based on work of Iloveplayciv) and the Villista unit by C. Roland.
    - 18m57s | Code Corner
      A segment on Zebra 9's zRoutes mod, which turns into a Python vs C++ debate. Also, we talk about the Civ Changer SDK component by Dale.
    - 30m12s | Spotlight
      We discuss the Defense mod that came with Beyond the Sword (related link: Desktop Tower Defense).
    - 40m10s | Mailbag
      Going through the feedback we got for Episode #1 here, here and here.

    Cool Cast!

    Ever since I saw Soren's blog I've been addicted to DtD.

    What kind of..er..mentally challenged person would argue C++ vs Python?

    Isn't that a bit like a "tricycle vs speedboat" debate?

    It would do you well to mod some Civ4 or at least listen to the show before making an uninformed statement like that.

    It's not uninformed, I'm just poking fun at the lack of context of the statement.

    I thought it was a language debate, not a "which is the best language to mod Civ with".

    Frankly, the former is interesting and the latter is not.

    This is a podcast about modding Civ. Do we really need to spell it out for you?

    Yes. I thought this was a, you know, mod podcast between moderators.

    You guys really should have someone in marketing in the administration to avoid such amateur errors.

    Those who requested their most recent posts in this thread be deleted that is done. LS, no worries.

    Moving on back to discussion central to this episode itself...
