Modding: Modding Is a comprehensive name for changing product packages in an original and unique way to the creator. In fact, everything can be done, from cutting and bending the case, painting its various parts, to the use of special lighting, impressive effects and unique materials.
It is not a big secret that modem field in Israel is not developed, to say the least. The community is closed and limited, shops do not cooperate and import special products, and modding competitions are still a distant dream. In reality, as of today, Modding is the lot of a few crazy people. However, points of light in the modding world, which allow us to glimpse the world of the excluded are Forum project logs וModding Gallery. In case you are not aware of them, the Project Log Forum contains detailed documentation detailing the progress of a significant number of projects (although smaller than we would like to see), and gives you an opportunity to receive constructive opinions and criticism about the work you have done and what you will do. However, the Modding Gallery contains תמונות Which describe the transposition of completed projects, even those that did not merit a project diary. According to quite a few testimonies, the Project Logs Forum and the Gallery are an inspiration for both beginners and advanced designers, and a source of pleasure for those who value the creativity and hard work invested by those who are exposed to the same tin basket that is placed under the table and accompanies us in most of our lives.
Among the many projects published in the Project Diaries Forum there are quite a few praises (As for example the project of Eli - Server of NOD), But a little unusual is Project log Of the modern Ido Aricha better known by his nickname SnakeBite. Proecto, which won the name ESC Project, Observed in a record number of times - over45,000 Views, and updated from the beginning of the project to its end, a period of time which exceeded a year and a half. During this period, readers could witness changes that the system underwent as a result of updating, and even anticipated the progress of the system SnakeBite, Who gathered courage and tried more complex and ambitious actions with his system.
In light of the above data,SnakeBite And to have a brief interview about the project, and to take the opportunity to receive his opinion on various issues related to Modding and the possible development directions of the field as he sees them.
How did you start your way as a modem?
Years before I started the project in question, I was always very interested in the field and I would surf many forums without commenting on them, and watch a lot of YouTube tutorials MNPTech.com, Which teach the use of tools and methods accepted). As soon as I started with modding, I realized that passive understanding of things was completely different from the active application, and I needed focused guidance HWZone The picture, in addition to Google of course. At the beginning of my career as a moderator (this is my first project by the way), I was very much influenced by Dimima from the forumssR) With the project AquaLight His famous and impressive even world-class, and also Mali (arakadur) And mainly from his investment in small details. Another important person who helped me a lot is my father, who has been working as a locksmith for 40 a year, so I did not have to go too far to get tips and guidance from a real professional.
So, how did the project start?
The project began with my cousin having a computer that did not work properly, and he asked me if I wanted to try to fix it, because I was Computer Technician. I told him that there was no problem and I could try, and from there everything began to roll.
The initial idea was to buy a few basic things like fans and replace the thermal paste, but each time I had another idea and wanted to fix something else that bothered me and the result was before you. At first, I thought to do Modding Basic idea with no idea behind it but then I saw that all the professional projects have a concept that is a subject that modding revolves around it. In the end I chose to build a computer that would remind a car ספורט, Hence the name of the project - Extreme Sport Car. My challenge was not to turn the computer into a car ספורט (There are many projects that first build the chassis as they want, and casually add the computer), but to create a computer with characteristics that I think are common to the car ספורט.
What difficulties did you encounter during the project?
My main difficulty was time; I was a student at a hesder yeshiva at the time, and I would come home every few weeks and even when I was already at home, I did not always work. Another difficulty was to quarantine the final planning, because whoever did or followed me Modding Knows that not always what the planners in the beginning will be the final result. Another difficulty I had was to keep a reasonable budget, because I did not want to spend thousands of shekels on the package, because it was my first post, and I did not have a job at the time.
How would you recommend a beginner to a scene?
In my opinion, a moderator should teach himself to dare. Not everyone can buy a new product and immediately disassemble and start "abusing" it. The basis for a good moderator in my opinion should be (in order of importance): daring, a lot of patience, improvisational ability, good hands and preferably also access to appropriate tools. When it comes to daring, you can first practice using old or used products that you do not mind being destroyed. After rubbing you can jump into the deeper water (newer and more expensive, to be honest). In my opinion, a moderator should also be a perfectionist to one degree or another, because otherwise he will give up too much for himself, even when the result is far from perfect.
Anyone who thinks that he has these qualities and wants to develop further will go for it, start at the beginning with small things, publish his results in the forum, get an opinion and continue from there. Moder also needs to know how to get criticism that will enable him to improve, but at the same time maintain his personal style and follow his own taste.
How do you think? HWZone Can help the Mudding community in the future?
First of all, I think that there is not enough awareness and awareness of the modem field in Israel in general, and on the site in particular. To put the matter in the headlines, competitions must be held Modding In addition to overclocking competitions, and to provide a forum for the self-actualizers to come and explain the processes and difficulties involved in performing Modding Which will cause interest and appreciation to the field, and will encourage people to challenge themselves and jump into deep water. The bottom line is that all you need to be a good moderator is imagination, all the other qualities I mentioned will come with time. In addition, I would be happy to see other instructors who will always help those who want to start, and will also help those looking to challenge themselves and break new boundaries.
