  1. Greetings from sunny Central Croatia (last week it was equally sunny Northern Italy)! The sea is salty, but a bit cold – nevertheless, we enjoy our family-and-friends time here! Will be back full-time next week. Aloha!

  2. I care deeply about mods, but I am doubtful as to what the value would be to the WX show. (THAT would be a good topic for a poll, by the way.) I also think your pick for this show, Sins of the Prophets, is a bad example because it’s a pretty high profile mod. I was familiar with it already, and I don’t even care much about Sins.

    That’s how it often goes with worthwhile mods, especially ones based on a popular IP. If it’s good, it’ll build its own popularity and it doesn’t need exposure on a show like this. More obscure mods, on the other hand, tend to be too small in scope or too limited in their appeal to really warrant the time and effort of bringing them up.

    If you’re going to cover mods, especially for the more populated titles (Stellaris, Rimworld, XCOM 2, BATTLETECH), perhaps a better approach would be to cover not single monolithic mods, but rather collections of smaller mods that work well together. Steam of course lets you make collections outright that you can link to, but you could also simply go “consider using mods X, Y and Z together, it’s a great experience, because blah”. Maybe that’s not what you’re looking for, but it would be more interesting to me at least.
