I posted here because we are a little more mature in here than in the general forum. I am a fan of the original crown, it works great and loads easy. Basicly people in the spire threads said I couldn't put one on a spire and that I shouldn't. so I did, with a little fab.
making a copy of the lid to cut out with my router
original on the left mine on the right
cutting the collar out, there isnt any off the shelf pipe that i could find that would fit correctly.
same in the hopper forum; I've seen some people complain about the new virtue lids, so I could definitely see some people doing something like this if they have the old crown.
If you want to set off and go develop some grand new thing, you don't need millions of dollars of capitalization. You need enough pizza and Diet Coke to stick in your refrigerator, a cheap PC to work on, and the dedication to go through with it. We slept on floors. We waded across rivers. -John Carmack
