    Fresh twists. The eightieth episode, and tenth season premiere, of ModCast entitled "Shake Things Up a Little Bit", is now netcasting. Lead co-host Rob "Rob (R8XFT)" Riley is joined by fellow regular co-hosts John "Neirai" den Otter and Lee "LeeS" Shipp with returning guest "SeelingCat" in this 82m18s outing, a record runtime for the show to date.

    The summary of topics is as follows:

    - 00m35s | Modding Spotlight
    Checking back in with the show's guest with what what he's been up to over the past half-year in Civilization VI modding.
    - 20m15s | Artist Sketchpad
    Adding Great Athletes to the game (recorded for Episode 72), mixing and matching Japanese Medieval unit art models (23m52s; recorded for Episode 73) and on Armenia and Malaysia for CivVI (27m57s; recorded for Episode 78).
    - 31m24s | Cartography Room
    The "Better Great Person Screen" for Civilization VI is examined, and a Reverse Island Plates map script for the game is considered (35m08s).
    - 39m26s | Code Corner
    Four CivVI modding works share the limelight: "Chrisy15's Civilizations and Leaders", Gedemo's historical and fantastical City States including but not limited to "Pompeii", "Camelot" and "Arkaim" and a Chinese-language based effort to pick a second leader mid-game.
    - 57m41s | Miscellaneous
    Putting forth the idea of having a Civilization VI religion that is based on two or more Pantheons.

    ModCast is the first spin-off of the Civ strategy-centric PolyCast; fellow sibling TurnCast focuses on Civ multiplay.

    Did Rob say record date of November 20th at the end there or did I hear that wrong ?

    Neat trick if we haven't actually recorded the episode yet .....

    well if the listeners listened to the 'bloopers' they also discovered what I sound like with a nasty chest-cold. though I don't know how that Archeological Discovery really applies much to modding.
