From the lost journal of Anton Sokolov, head of the Academy of Natural Philosophy and Royal Physician to then Lord Regent Hiram Burrows:
It's time to mod again!! I've decided to make a mod based on the Bethesda game Dishonored. I loved the game overall but its visual style is what sold me. I've not seen another game that looked like it. The setting, the colors, the texturing, all genius. I will try to capture some of that same feel in this mod.
I'll be taking the finished product to QuakeCon in Dallas in July to show it off and enter it in their case modding competition also. With paint, component relocation, lighting, a large rigid-tubing water loop and a couple of motorized surprises in the plans, I need to get started!
I am normally a scratch builder. In fact, this will be only my second attempt to modify an existing case, the first being the very first thing I did after learning of the case modding phenomenon. Needless to say, that turned out... poorly. Looking back, the Ultra Microfly was perhaps not the best choice for a first-time modder. I will not make that same mistake again.
This mod will be made using the Cooler Master HAF Stacker case with an additional 915R unit, making the overall piece 37 inches high. Plenty of room for whatever I need to put in there. <fingers crossed>
I hope you'll join me and Sokolov as we create his masterwork: Imperium.
First off, a thanks to my sponsor:
Since this isn't a worklog without some modding, let's strip this case!
Gorgeous huge chunk of black goodness!
LOOK at all that space!! A whole family of Microflies could live in there!
But really, who needs twelve drive bays?? In fact, who needs any?
Don't need all those cables or that lower 5 1/4" bay either.
Not going to need those front panels either. The stripped-down skeleton that will be Imperium.
Easily broken into 3 more manageable modules for now.
Lots to do, updates to come. Thanks for following along!
