Re: Hydrocannon

In case anyone's interested, these are the last few pictures I've taken of the thing (I have since changed the ABS pipe to a smaller diameter pipe to get it to fit): http://i1172.photobucket.com/albums/r565/dudean_explorations/DSC03551.jpg And the case had to be modified as such: http://i1172.photob...

Not to mention would also be ridiculously expensive.

Re: Downpour 2012: A Full War Report From Your Soggy Host

I may be able to.
Main reason I couldn't go this year was because it was my birthday and my family+friends already had dibs on me that day. If I don't get shipped off to some remote part of the world because of work next summer, I may well be able to make it.

Re: Downpour 2012: A Full War Report From Your Soggy Host

Just find a babysitter for your kid, take a few days off work, get a nurse for whoever needs a nurse, and make your way down! I solve so many problems!

Except really, I shouldn't be talking because I've yet to make one of these gatherings :goofy:

Re: Wanted - CPS 2000/2500 Pump Handle

Well, it means my (many) unsuccessful mods are also on display :D

And before anyone thinks I'm hijacking the thread, I replied to StewGregg's PM. Of course, I couldn't help, so if anyone has a spare pump handle, go ahead and offer it!

Re: THE SCREAMING VANQUISHER

I'm with SEAL, that's probably just the PRV kicking in, sometimes they get very loud and screechy. The Ultimate Vanquisher has a low pressure chamber volume, so it's perfectly believable that the PRV kicks in after a few pumps (iSoaker's stats suggest it would take 7 pumps, but all soakers are diffe...

Re: your fighting style

I actually haven't tried Timmy in a proper battle. I imagine he'd work well without being the perfect fit, he's easy to maneuver with, doesn't take many pumps (like 10), has great range and high field life. Only real drawback is the lever trigger which slows me down marginally. I know the bigger Wat...

Re: your fighting style

Yaay I inspired a topic! Like I said in my battle report, I tend to prefer engaging at distance for a while, then charging in and going for the kill. Mobility is more important than anything else to me because I get into so many "dangerous" positions close to my opponents, I need to be able to move ...

Re: Birthday Battle -> The Story

Variety also makes for more memorable moments. In one Vermin War this guy showed up for the other team with a 12k, wearing a Ninja headband and 2 SS 50s tucked into his belt. We were all like who the #*(#@ is this guy? and we taunted him. During the war, my squad was fighting up on a hill, when the...

Re: Birthday Battle -> The Story

Pictures, I knew we forgot something! You had quite the diverse array of weapons. I don't know if there's ever been a 250 vs Orca or SS 50 vs CPH battle, at least not documented. :lol: Isn't life so much more interesting when the team arsenals don't just look like "CPS2K x 5" on either side?

Birthday Battle -> The Story

Note: No real battle stories or complex tactics here, this was a party with my less-hardcore-than-myself friends. What follows is the journey to a few hours of team OHKs. In the month leading up to my birthday (yesterday), my friends and I kept throwing ideas around as to what we can do. The ideas r...

Re: Hydrocannon

So far, it's held up well in testing, main area I'm worried about is the connection between the clear tubing and the top half of the gun. You can kinda see in the picture how little room I had to clamp the tubing on, so I gave it a bit of glue just to be safe. As for the tubing, really it was just t...

Totally forgot to update, I've taken a week off this project, but I want it to be done within the next few days, so here I am! The internals are basically done, I've tested it and it works nicely (will be better after some nozzle work, for now I've just ripped out the screen at the tip of the nozzle...
