Random knex challenge 7- The mother of all modification contests. (Edit- Winner) Answered

This is the first random knex contest posted under its new host, me.  I'm taking the operation over.  Sorry I couldn't post it yesterday, but my house got broken into and under that commotion, I forgot.

Anyways, the title is what it is.  You can modify ANY knex design on the internet posted (with one exception see below).  However, there are guidelines:

  • Must Improve on original design.  The improvements can be on performance, efficiency, parts conservation, whatever.  However, adding random useless crap on a design is NOT acceptable.
  • Must be original.  The design doesn't have to be yours but the MODS you make to it do.
  • The more improved the design is, the best chance you have of winning.
  • Don't limit yourself to just guns, you can mod ANY design.
The one design I will NOT allow in the contest is the TR since it is so open to mods and there is a variety of options for it.  So keep that in mind.

 


Accepted entries: 

  • Knex gun builder- Modded ZKAR bolt
  • RC-1207SEV- Modded freeslinger
  • Knexfreek- Freeslinger to tankbow transformation.
  • Tigernod- OSNJCKMA2 mods (Can't remember the abbreviation)
Edit- The winner is....Tigernod and his modded OSNJCKMA2.  Congrats!  Expect a patch soon Tigernod.

The winner has been announced above!

I started building Kinetic's shanti bow, but realised the back looked horrible and gave it a completely new body (except the bow, pin rail and barrel setup).  I also changed the trigger, handle, and top rail, and removed the turrets to add a NAR mechanism to the front.  I also intend to beef up the bow arms. 

Is that a mod or a different weapon?

Still a WIP, I don't really want to post anything yet.  I'm still working on a locking mechanism for the rods, I may ask Zak for his from his NAR mod.

Because I now have the pics for the NAR mod and will hopefully have finished it tonight.  I should have pictures up over the weekend.

I'm not gonna accept mods for the NAR because the NAR was originally a TR with a single shot barrel and a special chamber to keep the pin from breaking, thus, a mod of the TR.

Loldj

I just put a NAR mechanism on the front of Kinetic's shanti bow...

Oh in that case I will take it.

I probably won't enter it, it turned out half as well as expected...

your stupid ,you need to learn how to look back and read.

Says the dumbass who said "your" instead of "you're".  Next time you're gonna call someone stupid, at least use the correct form.  That's all I ask.

 I think I'll post what I posted on your TR mod forum, It basically increases ROF of TR18 , or it increases the efficiency and ammo amount of Knexsayer

If you had of read the topic, he said that you are not allowed to enter TR's.

ya not tr's he never said anything about parts from the tr and plus he modded a knexsayer and i dont think a knexsayer is a tr case closed

If you use punctuation, people may be able to see what you mean straight away, rather than having to read your comment about 5 times.

ya some people like perfect grammar some people don't and some people don't like liars and some people don't not naming any names though *cough*knexguy*cough*

By 'Some people don't like liars and some people don't'  do you mean 'Some people don't like liars and some people do'? 

Not trying to pick fault, I genuinely don't understand what you mean. 

no im just saying people just dont like liars period.

Ok, but that has nothing to do with my comment.

I also said it had to be an ORIGINAL mod.  Putting a TR18 turret on a knexsayer was not his idea, and thus not original. 

I just got your PM, 2 days after you sent it to me, but then I realized I'm too late. It is exactly 8 days since the topic got posted, and the deadline was in 1 week. So, can you PLEASE make an exeption? Please? I promise that I'm finished before tomorrow, 10 o' clock, GMT. Please, I really did my best to enter it on time, and it would be very dissapointing if I can't enter it.

First of all, I would like to congratulate you on your new function as contest organizer. I wish you the best of luck and hope to see many new and innovative contests from you.

Second, I have a few questions about this contest.
1: Is it allowed to enter an instructable that already has already been posted a long time ago? Because I belive this is not allowed on some other contests.
2: Is it allowed to post mods that improve the looks of knex models? Because that could be accepted as "random useless crap".
3: Why cant you post modifications to the TR?
4: Is it allowed to further modify your own models?
5: Is there a limit to the number of entries you can post?
6: Do I need to make a new Instructable to enter? Or is a slideshow ok? Or is it allowed to just post a comment with some pictures here on this topic?
7: I have a modified OSNJCKMA2 right here, one with increased range and damage. (I don't want to enter it just yet, because I want to improve it even further.) On that OSNJCKMA2 are also some mods that Odin 6616 made (stock, handle). Am I allowed to post it, or do I need to remove these parts first?

And third, I like your new avatar image!

Oh and I forgot:
8: When is the deadline?
9: It's not allowed to post TR's. Is it allowed to place a TR18 turret on another gun?

The deadline is 1 week from the post of this topic.  And yes.

Can you please answer the other 7 questions too?

??? I posted another comment here, but appearently it got deleted! Well, anyways:

1: Is it allowed to enter an instructable that already has already been posted a long time ago? Because I belive this is not allowed on some other contests.
2: Is it allowed to post mods that improve the looks of knex models? Because that could be accepted as "random useless crap".
3: Why cant you post modifications to the TR?
4: Is it allowed to further modify your own models?
5: Is there a limit to the number of entries you can post?
6: Do I need to make a new Instructable to enter? Or is a slideshow ok? Or is it allowed to just post a comment with some pictures here on this topic?
7: I have a modified OSNJCKMA2 right here, one with increased range and damage. (I don't want to enter it just yet, because I want to improve it even further.)

Oh your comment is showing up now.  Don't worry, I answered your PM.

I didn't recieve a PM. Something is very wrong here. Anyway, I need the answers of these questions ASAP, the deadline is in just 2 days!

WTF.

1. Yes.
2. Depends on the look.  If the original design was sloppy, and you made it look better, I wouldn't call that "random useless crap".
3. Because the TR is so open to mods and so many people have made their own versions.
4. Yes.
5. 1
6. Just post a picture.
7. You can post it as long as you give credit to everyone.

Why is this comment only showing up for me?

My RAWR was a big modification of mikstr2's MPR12-V3.
Does that count?

There's a fine line between mods and a whole new gun.  Yours is modded to the point where its a new gun.  Zak's mods to Killerk's TR could be considered "pushing the limit" to this line.

This is my best moded gun:  Uber freeslinger, with a bow, side panels, sturdier mag, better pump, and some other small things.  Greatly improved the gun, all mods are original.

I know, right!  I'm trying to post a slideshow, but i let my computer sit for hours, and yet my 20 pictures never upload!

Thanks DJ, I'll try that.  I also like your new knex tip!

i modded this gun more than yours i modded the trigger adding a bow thats thinner than yours, made a higher capacity magazine and a new pump plus reinforcements

I changed the trigger, i have a new pump, i reinforced it, i like a bigger bow, its stronger, I like the mag to be didcrete, i don't want a tower on top of my gun, it is easy to make the mag bigger.  So no, you didn't mod it more.

 knexfreak 95 needs to enter his desperado mod!
