  • 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.

          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?

            Oi!

              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.

                      Pity, I even gave you a chance to make this go somewhere.
