I used an interesting tuning for one song on the last UT album.
D-A-D-D-A-D
The middle D strings are the same note. Gives it a cool chorused feel.
You could obviously duplicate it in lower tunings.
B-E-B-B-E-B etc...

Find a chord you like, tune it to that, and detune as necessary.

Add amps till it sounds 'good'.

This is one i use a lot for Indian style doom. Bottom strings as drones and when you get your head around the top strings you can scale and gliss around and play some beautiful chords.

F#-F#(^8ve)-G-C#-G-A#

So the lowest string is an octave lower than the next, which is itself only a semi-tone lower than the next etc.
It's a bit of a funny one to get your head around but i've done some incredible music in this tuning, it's the only alternate i bothered to remember and re-use.
