Well, I'd like to say that I prefer the health-system with reincarnation. Anything with reincarnation too would be good, but I'd prefer the health-system. I wasn't aware of the "1HK lives" variation. Or you could do a soakfest capture-the-flag type game. Those always are fun and long. We play that ...

Any power station has like infinity times the force I do. Plus big magnets weight a ton unless you get the special super-strong ones (which cost a ton), along with the compressor. That'd take away my water capacity unless I want the increased weight. Sorry, but it's not a practical idea at all. I d...

How is the pump broken off? Is the pump rod pulled from the water gun? Is the pump rod snapped or cracked? We'll need details to help you, not just "my pump broke." Once we get details, I am sure we will give you the correct repair.

:cool:

In my games, the front and back of the shirt being adequately wet is reason for elimination. Adequately wet is defined, by me, to be over half of the area wet. This works well to make the games long and fun because you can take a hit and still be around or not have to return to the base or the medi...

If you are set on building spherical, you only choice is balloons: http://s8.invisionfree.com/soakermedia/index.php?showtopic=474 As for the homemade CPS water gun I had made, that was just a use for leftover parts in reality.

I came back early from my hiking trip. These trips I hate, so I only stayed for half of it. @Duxburian: I'll draw up a single piece CAP design for you. The design will be as close to how I think you'd do something like this as possible. I'm thinking something like a U shape. A small backpack design...

You can use a pump like anything else with CAP. A small CAP water gun hasn't been made, but it's completely possible. Larger ones obviously would take a lot of effort to pump up. Even still, I figured none of that mattered when making my one. I can get at least 5 full shots from a full pressure tan...

The only thing I think is missing is the basic hit-and-run tactic, which is used very often and should not be missed. Though, I'll admit it might be included under a different name.

The soakfest movie was a refresher for how we compare to M4's team. I saw a lot of non-painted soakers in that... I never saw how painting made too much of a difference. You might be hard to see in one place, but you'll stick out real bad in a lot of others. There's also no correlation between pain...

There can be a repair for that too. I was considering removing the entire nozzle assembly and replacing it with a PVC version. Should work similarly, and you probably would be able to reattach the nozzle selector parts.

If no one offers a replacement nozzle, let me know. I should be able to offer a good repair solution.

How about posting the currently existing war videos onto one of those websites? Might be a good idea to have a trial run. Of course, you'd have to re-encode the Soakfest video, and that might be a problem. :;):

I don't think you read everything correctly mike9909. It's not 120 PSI that will give a lot of thrust. I'd imagine 120 PSI would give a lot of thrust, but that depends on the water gun design. It's 120X of output that gives a lot of thrust. Output and pressure are completely different. I acheived t...

A ram rod was what MrPukeOnYourHead used. You should also have a valve on the back that opened to vent the air.

The firing valve is open at all times. That problem is usually cause by one of two things: the rubber seal falling off (likely in high-pressure related problems) and the spring not being strong enough to close the valve. First try the common rubber band repair to close the valve if it is due to the...

No. The piston design is unlike the Douchenator. The idea is that the piston separates the air and the water, allowing for the water gun to be shot at any angle. That, again, is another reason to use a piston water gun. Lots of advantages, but they obviously are harder to make. Here's some images o...

The best design however would be a piston. It'd have the most linear flow, use all of the water, and be smaller. The only downside is constructing the piston, but it's been done before with big O-rings (MrPukeOnYourHead's water guns from 2001!). In my take on this, I'll try to use big rubber seals,...

It's not going to hurt anywhere near as much as paintball would if it hurts much at all. The "stream" is traveling slower, is far wider so the impact is spread out, and breaks up on impact. Want to know why frozen paintball hurt more than regular ones? Pressure. The frozen paintball does not break ...

Every time I go and read an old review of something like the CPS 2000, I laugh real hard now. You can feel the gun buck? Wow, you must have something real special there. :goofy: Sarcasm aside, I don't think anyone really understands how much thrust I was getting with this. When I say thrust, that's...
