In my absence from Nerf, one of the things i filled some time in with was desktop and GUI enhancement. The first picture is my desktop, the second is a shot of my explorer and general window skin, and the third is my window manager (expose clone)
Hope you like it
I seem to remember ragnorocks' old Night Finder mod getting ranges of about 100' with a petg barrel and a bigger spring. I think that with the extra sling-shot elastic on it, it is definately possible for this NF to get ranged like that.
GW man, keep it up
Edit: Sorry, i was well wrong. Just checked ragnorocks mod, and he was getting ranges of 60' with stock darts. I reckon he'd hit 70/80 with stefans. I didnt read the whole mod, so im not sure if he put a bigger spring in it or not. I still reckon that with those bands on it 100' is possible.
All i was saying, granted in a pretty smartass way, was that this place has obviously changed a bit from the last time i was here. I am sorry I didnt pick this up sooner. You were right to pick me up on the capatalization and grammer thing. If that is the way you want things done, all the more power to ya, but I dont think ragging on the threads i have or have not decided to post in, especially after such a long absence is really helpful. Gee, when i was around, we were desperate to try to stop all the noobs posting! And although i am not a noob as such, my knowledge is old. I decided it would be better to improve it before posting so i didnt look like a fool, and waste peoples time. I do indeed look forward to being a valuable member of this fourm, it is just a matter of getting re-accustomed.
Gee have times changed around here. This used to be a fun, chilled place to hang out. Is poor capatalization going to kill anyone? The reason I expected a reply so quickly is that recently I have been on a drum forum. The place is massive and you can expect a reply to any post in minutes. I have since become accustomed to this, and expected similar from Nerfhaven. Sorry for making a mistake.
The reason i have posted in so few threads is because i have been busy readibnng up on whats been going on while i was around. Making sure there were no massive Nerf innovations i had missed in my absence. What would be the point of posting with knowledge as old as mine? It would be less productive than not posting as all. Hence, i decided that i would read up so that i may be an asset to the forum, as opposed to a hinderence.
Once again, sorry for offending you, I will try to carry myself with the highest decorum, and bow to you obvious superiorority
So hows life been around here? anything interesting happening?
i dont know what this combustion gun is, but the way your talking it uses gunpowder or something! that is too much!!!!!!!!!
We need Karma CX!!!
The are alot of interesting points in this poll, and a few misunderstandings.
1: Combustion guns do not really have much flame IF ANY 90% of the time. I have used mine a fair bit recently, and it has been very reliable, predictable, and i haven't ever had the slightest thing go wrong (hey, where are my eyebrows? )
A perfect example of great applications for the gun
a golf course and that where we play
My combustion gun really is no louder than any other nerf gun, it has a little 'whoomp' as the air, gas, and dart escape the barrel, but it hardly mimicks a firearm at all.
or the neighbors calling the cops everytime you set your "firearm" off?
A perfect example of how one could be SAFELY utilised. Mabey even just one per team, no matter how large. This would add a whole new element to the game where people need to work together more in that they need to call on their one loser for one job, and others for other jobs.
there's a gun that shoots 200+ feet, then it shouldn't be used for shots less than 90 feet , a ratio of 1:5 people on a team may have one in use
Keep an open mind
Edit: I am getting killed in this one. That one for for "They're great!" is mine
Just a thought,
the other consideration is that when using a gun with the ranges of the comb. gun, the nature of the game may change to accomadate them in that it will become a game fought accross longer ranges that it currently is, making the gun less dangerous as it loses velocity over the range. I think the best way to incoporate them is to stricly govern their use, making that they cannot be used within a certain range, or in wars that are intended to involve alot of close range fighting.
The barrel length is 34cm (1' 1"ish ),
the combustion chamber is 18cm (7"ish ),
making the overall lenght including the stock: 78cm (2' 6")
My explanations of whats what should be more clear now. Any q's, post away.
I think it is best to work together with other forums like NHQ, they deal with the noobs, and their mods reccomend additions to the NH clientel. This system would work best if all possible forum mods work together to make the entire nerf community a better place. Keep NH for the bet of the best, and select the best from other forums for promotion to the NH forums.
I have just mailed some pics to thirst that he is hosting for me. The picture quality just aint ther guys, sorry, but it give you an idea of what the gun looks like.
The bit that looks green in the photo is acutally camo. It is the barrel and combustion chamber. The white is the stock, and the orange is the handle of an old toy gun that i used the trigger system from to operate my electronics. The silver is the doderant can, it sprays directly into the combustion chamber. The "scope" on there is just a piece of PVC that i use to sight the gun, but oesn't actually zoom, as even on a gun with the range of this, it would be fairly ineffective. Any q's ask.
my thanks to thirst.
EDIT: Updated Ranges: (average)
With 2cm (8/10") diam darts with heavier weight: 68m (223ft, thanks tatia)
Little Oil balls: 75m (246ft)
Normal stefans: 59m (193ft)
Accuracy is great, i can hit a 17" comp screen at 45m (147ft), after ALOT of practice, 7/10 times.
could someone pls pm me with ACCURATE comversions of my M ranges?
1)No, FBR wont melt, as there is actually very little flame. I mean i have been shooting oil filled balls, and if anything was goin to catch fire/melt they would.
2)I am not sure how my rifle compares to boltsnipers, but i will try to find out for you.
3)My propellant was deoderant, well more body spray. The stuff that doesnt go white when sprayed but is a liquid. In aust. i use LYNX
Thirst has just offered to host some pics for me so i will get them up as soon as possible. I do not think that the concept of combustion guns has been explored enough in the nerf world so i am planning on doing much more work on them. I will talk to a MOD about getting one posted in them homemades section to try to help get ideas rolling as i think there is great potential for them.
Any Q's, just ask
BTW: okto, there is no need to be such a smart arse, especially when you dont know what you on about! why would i bother making a nerf gun if i couldn't shoot nerf darts? i know what i am on about, and until you do to... shut it!
I recently tested with a nerf dart made from 2cm fbr, i normally use 1.6, with a slightly heavier weight and got a range of 68m (i think thats 196'). I think i will continue to use these darts with this gun becuase they are better suited to it than a normal stefan.
I know many do not think there is a place in nerf for combustion guns, but i disagree. I have just finished a homemade not for nerf, it shoots little balls of oil that you put in the bath, but it could very easily be converted to nerf, and i am in the process of making a nerf equivalent (sp?). This thing is great, it looks good, is VERY accurate, and has a range of about 75m (ft?, someone please convert, i think its 215'). The range might be a little less with nerf, i suggest around 60 (180'?)
The barrel i used was 2cm (inch?, just use what fits your darts) PVC, and for the expansion chamber you need it to be at least double the diam. of the barell. For the igniter you can use anything, electronics (my fave), a berbeque igniter like these ( http://www.scribal.c....php?itemID=342 ), whatever you want really.
With the nerf version, i intend to make a breech loader and clip if possible. This would theoretically give the gun a VERY high rof for a rifle. I will be using this to eat shit, due to its incredible range and accuracy.Like i said this thing is great looking too, and i would love to post some pics if somone would host them for me.
Any q's, just post
the trigger system is actuall very good, it is just aa push button swith on the handle (the 45 deg. pvc piece) used to engage the electronics. it only takes a very small tap on this switch and it fires. the only thing you have to make sure thaat the switch has to bee held down to operate so it doesn't leet out all you air after one click.
if you need any info just ask me about it.
long time no see... amyway, i cannot see what all the difficulty over breechloaders is.
This http://www.xinventio...spud/breech.htm is a good one, the one i use in fact. fairly easy to make, work out sizes and the such you need fopr your gun, any q's... drop me a line.
this same basic concept can be used to push a dart into the barrael, just flip it all around.
btw... my gun is a replica of the p.a.c. 3 ( the one on the site ), and is soo good. i gets shots well over a hundred meters wiith deadly accuracy. have a look around that place... it has some great stuff
Sorry bout my lack of reply to the script you sent me... however it all sounds pretty good to me. i think a great song for a ig fight scene would be MARILON MANSON - THIS IS THE NEW SHIT. i have it if you need it. its big loud and catchy... prefect. the opening sounds good but i think you need to be carful not to make it too tacky?? any way... if you need any help just ask dude
a little off track,
i was just wondering where you go to school, where and who you nerf with. Because due to the sucky state of nerf in aus, i can find no-one. it is really hard to get frineds into it to because of the fat that there are very few guns available, and most dont take it seriously. what solustions have you come up with to this problem? (i got sick of shooting at my dog )
Like i said, i like the aussie twang, but i think we need to think about bending the rules
because of the fact the we live close to each other, i was thinking about helping out with the movie. i am only in year 10 so i have much more time than you we could be a plus. do you have the current script on comp? if you do e-mail it to me (email@example.com) and i'll see what i can come up with to help. i am liking your ideas so far, and i would be willing to put in a fair bit of effort to help you get it off the ground.
keep up the good work
