Samething with Computers.. once you mention, really powerfull Machinery, the Comon Imagination looks for a ManhighBox resembling to the Garagesized Futurefurniture of 50s...why, can´t small be beautifull, after all everything modern is becoming greater with shrinking size (Radio>Walkman>Mp3Player) Power increased.. Size smaller.. and there comes a nice surprise Effect with it.. imagine a Davidfleah blasting One-Shot a Krog with one longloading Blast....

I wish there was a Competition for the most bizarre, fragile Ray/lightning/gun design.. just once not the sizematters Metall Dick..

It even could be made completely of free floating elements, only hold together by a Forcefield.. It´s the Future, hell, get over it.

some plastics are stronger than steel when it comes to bearing loads etc. It is all in what they are being used for. It is a matter of weight tolerances and the effects of heat.

I know of modern Plastics, my Brother worked in a Company who used them, one Example he told me off.. a sort of synthetic Glue they used to bind there Production Machines to the Floor.. it was so strong, it was nesescarry to break the Concrete to move the Machines again.. so i do not belittle modern weapons, i praise there reliability althoug looking far more fragile than there massiv Worldwar Forerunners.. So still my Point holds, why has every Gun to be Big Bertha Reduced? I really liked the Fragile, raffined RailgunVariant on the Fido- and then the usual - more steel, make it massive, supersize it, kill-o-zap it pleaz? Why? There are so many Beautifull Laser and Gunvariations out there, why has it always to be the boring heavy Metall Bagpipe of Death?

I just don´t this artificiall limitation when it comes down to the Barrel..

Not Nessesary- remember the Grenadelauncher from Outcast, or any other Mortar, take the Starcraft Reever, take Dark Reign- not i ment Battlezone II the AcidAlienBlobDropper or the RocketArtillery on the Human Side..

Why not move on, every other Thread the Rant to move away from the TA-Original, well why not doing the first step here, sending the Fido into the right direction ?

Sorry for the Spellos, i am Tired

I understand posting half awake I do it to Picasso, it's all good. Well thing is the starcraft reaver just emits a project, the outcast grenade launcher is as you say, a grenade launcher.. I did not play dark reign or bzII so I cannot compare the stuff.

artillery guns are pretty much going to look that way.

The fido doesn't have a rail gun and it doesn't have a plasma rifle. It has a large artillery gun on it's back. If it was a plasma or laser unit I could see using that design but it isn't.

Cos = Crest of the Stars

And im still tempted to start a Designthread on Non-Artillerie Energyrifles alone - and in the FidoUnitdescription there stand, that he uses a Gausrifle..that means.. wiki, wiki, wiki.. thats a magnetic coil gun then, which is a Artillerycannon, based upon eletric Energy in Coils.. okay, okay, i sank myself, but.. but still the Point that there is not enough Variation in Energyrifles has a hold, beyond this Thread and Topic. Take the Zeus,for Example.. every other Game would celebrate the Teslatrooper with a real Coily Arm, but not Spring..

It´s not that i can´t give up, having no point, it´s just a Battle that continues for good Reason ;)

picasson, I was going with a traditional look when I started that ak model but everyone shot me down so I scrapped it.

There are many units who use laser/plasma.

that ak model is cool, its just that when people have something to compare it to, they whine, always, if you make a few final adjustments I'm sure everyone will like it :-)

But those many Units Guns don´t look like Plasma or Laserguns at all - they still resemble a Metall-Artillery-Pipe...

And yet i have no idea what those egdge hardness is i think its something like the smooth option in upspring. I less prefer this one but maybe it gets me some ideas for a new one.

What is that?

I like the idea of a fido being a fast awesome kbot tiger with bfgs on his back. But dont hurt my pore fidos too much.

Poor Daan

See the Logo to the Uper left of the Website.. it´s the Sprinbrand, that´s the ugly Part of OpenSource, once you contributed, two Swedes appear at your home, burning the SpringLogo (with a iron hot & shaped as the sun) on a Body Part of your Choice..

At least they don´t insist on the tatooed Penispinguin of the Linuxcomunity (The untold Reason why they are forfree& stillnot sucessfull. Microsoft at least just hurts when it comes down to money)

;)

I demand less archaic Welcome Rituals.. or at least a motive of Choice... so Daan make "the" most beautifull Fido ever, because his Picture may last livelong...

(That´s what i call Motivationmethods... )

well in the end it is all up to the artists doing the models and what they want to make. I think that we will see more stuff of course the peewee was already struck from CA so we have lost that unit already.
