ModCast Pilot 02: "Slowly But Surely"

1 post in this topic



It's been more than half a year since the forty-sixth episode of ModCast, "Perfect Perlin", was published; it unexpectedly became the fourth and final episode of the show's fourth season. It is on a continuing hiatus in anticipation of the release of the Civilization V DLL expected sometime in 2012. In an effort to provide the Civ modding community a podcast until that time, what is old is becoming new again with the release of the show's second pilot entitled "Slowly But Surely" for the first time.


Featuring the initial four regular co-hosts Tony "GarretSidzaka" Kiehl, Wouter "Locutus" Snijders, Kenneth "Impaler[WrG]" Ferland and and a runtime of 43m02s, it was recorded in December 2007 in lead-up to its first episode the following month. The summary of topics is as follows:


- 01m00s | News

The merits of global warming and nuclear fallout; then, alternate leader traits for Civilization IV (04m51s).

- 09m07s | Artist's Sketchpad

A truck, King Leonidas (11m26s), and a World War I airplane pack) (14m20s) all for CivIV.

- 16m43s | Code Corner

An Inquisitor MOD leading to discussion on religious victory conditions for Civilization IV.

- 20m46s | Cartography Room

Maps inspired by Final Fantasy III on the Super Nintendo.

- 24m30s | Modding Spotlight

Critiquing the AfterWorld scenario included in the CivIV expansion Beyond the Sword that was modeled on the original XCOM.


ModCast is a recurring audio production in an ongoing effort to give the Civ community an interactive voice on game modding; sibling show PolyCast focuses on Civ strategy, RevCast focuses on Civilization: Revolution, SCivCast on Civ social gaming and TurnCast on Civ multiplay. The first MC pilot is unfortunately believed to be lost as no copy is known to still be in existence.
