Mechwarrior Build*Reserved*
Reserved for Souls Mechwarrior build.

Case is the Shinobi XL *Chopping time :D:D:D*

http://static.mwomercs.com/img/alleg...use_Davion.png HOUSE DAVION (FEDERATED SUNS)

Empire Designation: Federated Suns (half of the Federated Commonwealth)
Ruling Noble: First Prince Hanse Davion
Government: Constitutional Aristocracy (Western European feudal stylings)
Capital (City, World): New Avalon City, New Avalon
Dominant Languages: English (official), French, German

Going to incorporate their logo on the case for sure.

Now the big question... What Mech is the build going to be based on? Wanted to do my Fav mech the Masakari but Clan Davion does not use this sexy mech so what to do what to do??? maybe the Warhammer???

Okay still waiting on the case but we are going over ideas and I would love feed back

Going to use my dual cpu setup in this build so after the chimp challenge this case will be modded.

So what do we think.

make the whole case look like a mech?
make it look like a drop ship?
Make it look like a House City?

Ideas people Ideas hahaha

I already have one of my modding buddies making something really unusual for the Post sound :whistle:

I would love to see the whole case look like a mech or even just slightly resemble one. I think the drop ship would be cool but then the case would have to lay on it's side no? I'm not sure what a house city looks like. I haven't playe mech warrior since I was like 10 or something.

But the Atlas was not a Davion Mech was it? Thinking maybe the Warhammer as it is a new super Davion mech, my Fav is the Masakari but that's again not a Davion Mech haha.

Not to mention the picture is not of an Atlas anyway. The picture shows a "chicken-legged" Mech, and the Atlas had primate-style legs.

Rather than attempting to turn something that is essentially a rectangular box into something that is decidedly not, maybe you should consider using some design elements from Mechs (like torso elements) to give the enclosure a Mech theme? For example, you could look at modding the feet on the case to resemble Mech feet. You could look at each aspect of the case and decide which Mech elements would lend themselves best to that, without having to resort to attaching too many non-functional elements to the case that would simply diminish it's ultimate function as a computer enclosure?

I have to admit, I always liked the look of the original Warhammer. I think it was the twin PPCs that made it. Gave the arms a more lifelike quality to it, being thin and long.

Not as big of a fan of his tweaked newer design, although it remained mostly the same. Just the aesthetics seem a bit off.
