Re: Powercell startup sequence...anything "definitive"?

xoff00 wrote:Is there a definitive (or at least a solid guess) of the startup sequence of the PowerCell LEDs?


I also used an Arduino for my pack lights, and I determined that the Power Cell takes exactly one second to cycle through all fifteen LEDs (with the bottom LED remaining lit at all times).

It looks like no attempt was made at recreating the custom black GB2 belts for the dark grey uniforms; even if the above photo is just of a prototype, it still comes off as extremely lazy.

One of the most useful tools for a pack build is a step drill bit; this will make drilling most of the holes (particularly through aluminum) much easier.

I almost always wear my custom GB2 belt/fobs and gizmo with my GB1 suit, trap, and pack.

I have also had great success with the wall/ceiling texture, both on the master pack shell that I molded and on fiberglass shells that were already cast.

The wires should be fed underneath the grip, which should have a groove running the length of the underside.

As for the wires and leads on the underside of the barrel ear, the screen-used throwers had a short length of heat shrink tubing on the ear itself to keep everything secure.

Not to jump too far ahead, but when you get around to molding stage, are you going to mold/cast the shell as a regular Hero and then modify it into a semi-hero, or are you going for a production-accurate semi-hero with the cast-in booster tube, ion arm, etc.?

Given that there are no bolts or rivets on the motherboard, it may be possible that the motherboard and L-brackets are a single 3-D printed piece (probably out of ABS, which would also explain the 0.25" thickness of the motherboard).

Nice job identifying that faded label on the Ecto-1A's red storage tank. It seems that the prop-builders cut up this label for use on the rear instrument bar and the gun track on the throwers.

Wow, that is definitely interesting. Considering that Stephen Dane took considerable inspiration from military hardware for the design of the packs, I'd say there's a good chance that he had this in mind.

I recently purchased a blue brick wiring set, and it arrived a few days after a very timely response from Nathan. The quality is excellent, and I had it installed on my pack in under ten minutes.
