Hello fellow ModDB fans,
This week on Podcast 17 we had a great discussion hosted by Andy, lead of Overwatch. He proposed developing mods using an open source model. What are the advantages/disadvantages? What tools are available and other examples in the industry. It's a great listen for all mod developers who are eager to move into a new way of development and publication. Check below for the full list of participants as well as brief points of interest.
I would also like to take this opportunity to announce our Videographer position. Full details can be found on our blog, but in short, Podcast 17 needs help moving into a video show for our live listeners. If anyone has any experience using services such as livestream, justin.tv or ustream feel free to give us a shout. Full details can be found here.
