There is talk of it on the relic forums. The short version is no documentation and plugin licensing issues for the 6GB of dev tools. I wouldn't count out the Relic community modders, they started out reverse engineering relic's tools.

Please forgive replying to myself, but I was impressed enough with PR to download their mod, and check out their forums. There thread on the Modcast can be found here -

Another great show! Those PR guys were great!'s emails have saved me twice now. Sorry I was late, again.

I'm seeing some good patterns emerge. Start out with the shout outs, let everyone spam on chat. Then when the interview starts go to the slow-mo mode, conduct the interview, at the end field questions from the chat. Very nice.

I love the video's during the interview, but the lag does kick up. What about playing the video's on a service other than the one the interview is being conducted on? Maybe pre-load them so they don't have to be streamed off of Ryan's machine?

Sorry you got a timeout you feel wasn't fair. It's also not fair to the modders being interviewed and the people interested in their interview for fan boys spoilish behavior.

Having to comprehensively define spoiler behavior isn't needed. No ZPS talk would have to be, No ZPS talk, and no zps talk, and no z p s talk, etc., etc. spoilers aren't going to read the rules with the desire to make the experience better for everyone, but with the desire on how to spoil the experience.

I agree some cool stuff can, and a bit of it did happen when the chat's are on topic and meaningful in a way which can contribute to the conversation.

X-play beware! Great interviews, not much stepping on each other, not to many people talking at once. I really enjoyed it and the interactive parts that can happen when interviewers can see meaningful things in the chat is very cool. I didn't have too many technical difficulties at times other than when everyone was. Just had to reload the page once. I didn't stay all the way through though so I can't speak to any of the ZPS cast. The slow-mod feature and timeouts are a great feature to have. Business software that does casting like this has additional buttons on the chats to indicate things like applause or technical problems, and displays the totals, which makes the chat a bit more useful when you're backgrounding it. I was disappointed in some of the fan boy behavior. From others' chats it is obvious that some portion of the mod playing community wants the chat's to be on topic so more interaction can happen. Stricter moderation is my suggestion.

I don't think so. We have some staff that have been trying too, but dockpathing is tricky.

The modding phenomenon isn't really new. People have been changing the rules of games to make games more fun to them, since the beginning of game playing. The difference is the level of expertise required to mod modern (ie computer) games.

Good improvement, a lot less talking on top of each other. That Mario Opera music kinda freaked me out.

Less mods? Seems like more mods to me.

Part of the problem I see, is when the word gets spread too well, lots of hype gets built up and it becomes hard to meet those hyped expectations. This doesn't just happen in mods, look at UT3.
