Borderlands Casemod (Finished!)


(mariobitters) #1

As you may, or may not know, I made a Borderlands 1 Vending machine casemod on the old forums (topic can be found here.

Now 5 years later, I found it was time to change the case for the better, so I removed the original plexiglass plate with sticker, and replaced it with a 23" LCD screen (led or oled should’ve been better, but this one I had lying around :p). The eyepiece of the case has been changed aswell. It used to be an old webcam which didn’t work anymore, and now I replaced it with a working webcam.
Another feature added is, when you walk by, it uses motion detection from the webcam to play different quotes from the vending machines ingame over the built-in speakers!

Images on the front are “vectorized” in Photoshop from game files (used Texmod to grab them) from Borderlands 1 and 2 (still need to make a lot more, also from Pre-sequel). Also, as you may notice, they are clean, instead of beat up as ingame, liked that look a bit more)

Well, here are some pictures from the “new” case!

Mini? I want an extra large fridge that looks like that


(Velocitas Est Vita) #7

Good point - why go for the downsize when you can have it full size!

I never noticed the “bullet” in the ammo vending machine until right now

Amazing job by the way

Thanks everyone for the nice comments :slight_smile: Might release the images when I vectorized all of them :slight_smile:

This is awesome! Case modding is a hobby I hope to dive into one day.

Hey @mariobitters,
first up nice case. And secondly I wanted to ask if you have any recommendations in term of texmod tutorials, because I just can’t get it to work and it seems like you’re the only person in this forum who has used it on bl1.

Hey VincentDud,

Thanks for liking the case :smiley: It’s always nice when people like it that
much. About texmod tutorials, I’m not entirely sure what you want to do.
Would you like to enlighten me on this subject? Tbh I haven’t used texmod
for a few years now, so I have to reinstall BL1 and Texmod myself to be
able to help you out further hehe.

If you want, you can reply further at my email: mariobitters@gmail.com (or
add me on facebook: Slownick (Belgium))

Kind regards

Mario Bitters

Hey Mario,

Thanks for the quick response. It turns out that obtaining the texture I was looking for (The Moxxi sprays in the 3rd dlc) was much easier with the Unreal Package extractor. I am also “modding” my case a bit, but don’t have time for anything to fancy so I’m gonna just spray one of the ingame sprays onto the side with a template.
Thanks again for the quick response and willingness to help :slight_smile:

Cheers
Vincent
