The "What are you working on?" thread Answered

Well it's getting kind of annoying to go around asking people or just not being in the know of who's doing what so I had the bestest idea evah!!! Make a thread!! Lik ZOMG!!!

Anyways, yeah just post whenever you're making something new and talk about the following.
-What you're making
-What features it'll have
-If and when it'll be posted
-And finally any pictures you may have (not required though)

And keep it to K'nex please. This is the K'nex forum after all so I'd think that's obvious.

You must recover! Anyways I'm finally picking up my K'nex again for the first time in awhile. I decided I'm just going to fix up the TBAG and have it fire K'nex ammunition. I expect to be done with it tonight so I'll just wait until I have a picture before I explain anything.

Im going to try putting my F2000  mech into a non-bullpup rifle system.  Probably the ACR because I had an idea a while ago and made a very nice stock and adjustable cheekpiece, but had to scrap it because there was nowhere for the pin to go.   This mech should solve that problem.

Just a couple of days ago I made a knex pistol that holds 8 rounds.
It was the Oddammo one. And the ammunition is very weird.

I'm gonna be making a repeating shotgun which we have a severe lack of. The interesting thing is this one will have a magazine for shells. It'll be horribly piece inefficient though so it'll be mostly for the effect rather than war use. I might make another repeating shotgun designed specifically for war use afterward though.

I thought you weren't able to build piece inefficient guns.

I meant the magazine. One shell will take up a lot of space so, like I said before, it's mostly just going to be for the effect and then I'll make a far more efficient one after.

Bleh it didn't work out so well. The shells I made simply weren't designed to be stored in a magazine. I'll try out the other design. If that don't turn out, I think I'll try an oodammo shotbow, something even better than the last two.

Just make a spacer shell and shove a few green or white rods in it.

Already thought of that. The problem is it wouldn't work without a special ejection system. Only the first piece would shoot and the rest would be ejected out before they could exit the shell. Anyways, the shotbow idea interests me. I know it's not really a good shotgun type weapon but having the ability to fire two rounds separately does appeal to me.

The pin would block the shell from flying out when the ammo was shot.  The pin is supposed to move faster than the pusher.

Then you're not getting max pin use. And actually a lot of the energy is transferred to the shot right away, decelerating the firing pin, making it entirely possible for the shell to eject before it can enter it or, worse yet, causing a jam.

No, what I mean is that the pin would be about halfway in the shell.  The best use of a pin is a pin that pushes the ammo, but starts pushing it near the end of it's line of travel.  I've tried shot ammo with my shell ejecting pistol a few months back, it works just fine.

I think I will make a tactical shotbow v2, much bigger and better.

I made a shell ejecting mag fed pistol one time.  Of course it fired blue rods, but you can just put a few green/white rods in the shells to get shot.

Working on a halo map.  It will have:

• An assortment of weapons strategically placed throughout the map.
• All regular vehicles.
• An indoor area.
• A large outdoor area, preferably grass & dirt surrounded by high cliffs or mountains.
• A small cave.
• A sniper tower and a secret room.
• At least one bump-mapped texture. Very simple process. Instructions here: http://www.earthenrecords.com/bumpmaptut/intro.htm
• At least 600m in size.
• (maybe) Well-hidden toilets.
