Approach To Modification
Posted 13 December 2002 - 06:04 PM
At the other end of the spectrum are people who jump right into the mod and hack away at stuff until it works the way they want it. They frequently end up with something completely different than they intended. Perhaps something that functions brilliantly but resembles a giant mass of duct tape.
Where on the modding spectrum are you? What approach do you take to modification? What do you consider a successful mod?

If it's up there, and I see it, I'm going to make it like that.

Yeah, you get that tug of suggestion to just whip out the hacksaw and go at it; Sometimes it works, or not, other times. Usually the latter. The odd thing is, I've never "tweaked" a mod, really... Whenever I mod, I come up with a new idea as I finish the last one, so my weapons are forever in modifications limbo.

When integrating something I always take the part that I am integrating and stick it into the casing of the gun to see if it will fit.

What sucks are the ones that like to spew springs like so much mucus when you open them up... You have to spend a few minutes trying to figure out how the gun should work, as opposed to how it works...

No, but I have a big [BLEEP] gun. That's good enough for me!
If anyone was wondering, I'm RoboNerfer from NO. And I'm U.n.c.u.T.! on NerfHQ.

Belive me VACC I know how you feel. I once had a beutiful EAB. I completely forgot to even look for a mod and jumped right in. Well, I dropped my dremel and it sliced off part of the catch. I spent hours and hours trying to get that thing strong enough. And when I did it broke in a completely different spot.
I think the most blatant flaw in my system of modifying can be seen in the sawtooth. It was one of the first guns I ever took apart and I've regretted every time I've done it since. I mean, famine and I took two or three apart for some reason or another when we first started modifying guns, and NONE of them worked when we put them back together, and we never did know why. My point, though belated, is that it is important to truly understand how a gun, and I mean the whole gun, works before fucking with it. Nerf engineers are not geniuses, but they are sneaky little bastards, and they are, if nothing else, clever. The spring that touches nothing and is shaped like a cirlce with perpendicular protrusions? Yeah you know the one I'm talking about. It may SEEM useless, but it's probably not, and it will fuck something up at the opposite end of the damned gun...well you get my point.
It turned out ok though, because I took my triple strike and integrated into the shell. It was pretty kick ass until I was shot-out and I had left my gun in the parking lot of the park. Well, lets just say what happend next wasn't pretty. A god blessed truck ran over the damn thing. I loved that gun.
But anways I sort of think about what I am going to do. I get out the dremel, the pvc or what ever else I need and start cutting. I do usually look at someone elses mods and elaberate on those.

And VACC, how can you really say that those Sawteeth were such a loss? Didn't the gun rather suck balls unmodded? I'd say it was worth the risk to break into 'em even if the results were less than stellar.
