Posted 08 July 2004 - 02:45 AM

So I'm sitting here drafting out new designs which I might use for my next mod.

Looking for inspiration, I decided to watch TV while I doodle...

There's nothing on right now, so I switched over to the history channel. Guess what's on...


The History Of Salt blink.gif



And I swear, this is 100% true... The anouncer said "Comming Up: The Extreme Side Of Salt"



For the love of all that's good! IT'S SALT! sleeping.gif

...And that got me thinking... Should I cut out flames in the case and have them lit up with a CC, or should I cut out everything but the flames and have the CC as a backdrop?

You're even more pathetic than me! beerchug.gif


I was hoping to go with classic gaming colors (Black, Green, Silver).

I've seen red flames done before. But I've yet to see anyone do something like green flames. I'll finish up my templates and see if it'll look good, or if red is the only way to go.

I hadn't thought about using different colors of leds. That would provide a heck of alot more coolness than having a single color. Anyone got some pics of something similar? I'd love to see melds of CCs and LEDs together done well.

I watched the show on coal mining that was aired prior to the salt one. I didn't watch all of the salt episode though. grr.gif

Stop bashing salt. Salt is very interesting.

lol
i was watching that too man

the extreme side of salt was how they store radioactive materials (or want to) in salt mines as the temperature doesnt change

and they didnt want people form 1000years from now trying to use the salt, or exposing the waste

so they tried to think of a way to show future humans to stay away with pictures of spikes and masks
kinda weird but thats the way it works i guess

Wow... we're all geeks. Half of us have seen it! biggrin.gif

I love how they always manage to tie EVERYTHING to WW2 somehow. Name one topic that they didn't manage to tie to it! I dare you!




I made some templates of the top of the xbox case a while ago. That way, whenever I get an idea, I can sketch it out and see if it'd be worth doing.

First, I've sketched varying kinds of flames. I made some that were butt ugly, and others that were pretty good. Right now, I'm coloring them to various schemes. When I'm finished, I'll scan them and put them up so you folks can tell me your opinions wink.gif

Turn your Xbox into a big expensive salt lick.
