Yah, it is a real shame the NRev collapsed. Much of Louice3 and many other's work is now lost forever. If the site is recovered. We could possibly post a read-only version in a forum, merging it with NH. On the bright side, now that NRev is down, nerfers aren't separated and now everyone has their ideas on one website.
Louice3's stuff is all on his photo-bucket. Off the top of my head, the only content on NRev that isn't on here or HvZ would be Louiec3's stuff (still on his photobucket), Taer's stuff (which no longer had photos anyway), Ragriz's Hoppered longshot, and Rogue's stuff on Longshots, which has been done by others so its not lost entirely. We lost the newsletters, so that blows.
I'll text Vincent periodically to see if he responds. My working theory right now is that he is actually a CIA operative, and that he is now deep undercover in Crimea.
So, big takeaway from this is, always have more then 1 admin on a forum.
RIP NerfHQ, NRev, and Soothsayer. Apparently, NerfHaven is the Highlander.
Out of curiousity, can anybody think of what caused that? The raider and yellow-repaint of the longshot came out around that time, but besides that I can't think of anything.
The greatest number of posts on any single day was 439 on 2009-04-26.
The main way I see this happening is as a prototyping 'lead-by-example', in other words Ryan & Kane make cool stuff then people figure out how to replicate it without the 3D printer. Example of what I'm getting at: the +bow beget the snapbow.
Will the increased availability of 3D printing and modeling tools kickstart another homemades revolution in the NIC? - Submitted by Ice Nine
Welcome to Florida; You're off the edge of the map, mate. Here there be monsters.
That was a big fucking lizard crawling on that wall in the background.
Anyways, that is one of the Nerf PR Centurions in the vid. Presumably Langley/Talio/someone-at-NerfHaven should be getting one soon.
I just about guarantee it.
Also, can the front barrel come off? It looks like it might be detachable on the box...
The Recon, Longstrike, and Longshot all were packaged with the barrel off. It would take up wayyyy too much space if this thing was packaged 'complete'.
It should be fairly straight forward to convert this thing to micros. Hell, someone with a plastic printer could probably make conversion kits, as the Mega (Mongo?) Clip has a larger footprint then a micro clip.
Not quite as bad as that guy who ruptured his ear drum at APOC, but still... ow.
Question: since there are 27 options up there, could we have 9 per grouping with a 'None of the above option' in each one if we don't have a preference in that group? Or is that too overly complicated?

McMaster-Carr = Industrial Supply Company. Commonly used on the NIC because of widespread availability and standardization of materials
Also, random question for clarification: are the Magnificent 7 / 4 Horsemen / Apocalypse all Metallica references?
McMaster changed up the way they calculate spring constants since I made this, however the information is still accurate unless they changed the springs themselves.
The equations I use are courtesy of Zorn in the thread he mentioned up there.
The springs themselves are sorted by the max power of the fully compressed, whole spring.
I'm not saying this info is exact, but it should be close enough.
Probably the third category, though to be honest I don't see how you could do both in one mechanism.
A PulseStrike-esqe homemade, maybe.
Is there a cut-off date for officially entering this contest? I probably will, I'd just like to have something functional and up to par before you or I go through the expense of shipping something.
Slight off-topic, but Prime Time Darts work in these blasters, as well as Power Strikes.
My only question is: where the <bleep> do you get extra Punisher belts?!
Contact Customer Service and wait. They take their sweet time, but its the only route to go besides amazon/ebay.
Actually, if I remember right, our blasters are way more powerful than most airsoft guns, but our ammo is less efficient.
Depends on what metric you use.
I believe a nitefinder converted to shoot pellets is not allowed in airsoft because the muzzle velocity exceeds the limit for most fields.
Of course, that's neither here nor there, since comparing Nerf to airsoft is like comparing star wars to star trek while at a strip club: a poor use of time.
If the power of a 4B is really a make-or-break issue, an organizer could just mandate that they have a McMaster OPRV.
Edit: I think suction darts have a bit better fit then taggers in pvc, but I could be mistaken. Depends on the batch.
That setup looks a bit unwieldly with the giant cardboard box on one side and the trash can on the other. have you considered getting smaller boxes, possible cloth/wire boxes? by the way, has this had any problem with the added spring tension from the omw spring?
As far as box weight goes, HvZers have been using M1919 Browning machine gun ammo boxes for quite some time.
Maybe you could do a Crossbow silhouetted blaster next?
From the original +bow thread:
Main Project Aim: Develop a homemade version of the Crossbow that has performance comparable to one modified to level 4.
On a similar note, if you haven't picked a name for this yet, might I suggest +shot?
It will require ISPs to keep a record of your internet usage for 18 months, the information can be accessed if you are suspected of any crime, and the police do not need probable cause.
I'm trying to track down the date it goes before a vote.
Edit: From CNET, "A last-minute rewrite of the bill expands the information that commercial Internet providers are required to store to include customers' names, addresses, phone numbers, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, and temporarily-assigned IP addresses, some committee members suggested. By a 7-16 vote, the panel rejected an amendment that would have clarified that only IP addresses must be stored."
Why is it the only time Congress can be bipartisan is when they're complete assholes?
I wholeheartedly agree with this guy : Maddox's view.
Here is basically the problem with his idea: we've passed worse bills then this, with less fucks given.
The main thing that needs to happen is to convince normal people of all political viewpoints that this is a bad bill. Case in point, Glenn Beck has actually come out in opposition to SOPA, citing it as increased regulation (which, technically speaking, SOPA is).
Another option is getting rid of Smith himself. He has kept above 60% in his own district, but he might be forced out anyway. Texas is going to have to re- re-district after the DoJ told them they have to. Republicans hold the Texas house though, so Smith probably isn't going anywhere.
If this thing gos to the Supreme Court, we are truly fucked. They just ruled that Congress can take works out of Public Domain and put them back under copyright, so they probably would come down in favor of SOPA.
In it's current form, I think SOPA/PIPA would be vetoed, which means we need 34 Senators to be reliably against it to ensure it stays dead. We currently have 25 against, roughly 40 for it, and the rest are on the fence.
We're going into election season; make sure you and everybody you know gets registered, and find out where your representatives and senators stand on these bills.
I know this has special meaning to some people (including me) so I am glad to see we could take part in this blackout. SOPA was canceled I believe so now its just PIPA.
SOPA was not cancelled. Smith will likely attach it to HR 1981, “Protecting Children from Internet Pornographers Act of 2011". In other words, support SOPA or you're a pedophile.
This is exactly how they (and by they I mean assholes on both sides of the aisle) passed indefinite detention of American citizens in section 1021 of the NDAA.
Time to head north.
