Modding Casemod/Casecon

For modding enthusiasts, we have prepared two highly interesting competitions, Casecon and Casemod, for those who want to start from a box or prefer building mods starting from 0.

This year, we are resetting the mod list. Therefore, anyone with a mod may participate, regardless of whether s/he has participated during other years. Moreover, if you have a worklog, in addition to getting more points, we will project it on screen. If not, we will see to taking photos.
