CANNON CHALLENGE!

249k BogdanX  15 days ago

 The build is a functional naval cannon replica. 
 Pitch/Roll to maneuver it. VTOL UP to elevate the barrel. 

This challenge is about a vehicle or installation equipped with a cannon PART.


Entries: Planes with cannon weaponry (by default or pods), any type of ground vehicle with cannons (small or big), ships, structures (like a medieval cannon tower) or fixed installations (Like a Nazi Coast cannon) are allowed, as long the cannon parts exist. Still, cannon should belong there. For example: F-4 Phantom used cannon pods in Vietnam, but a F-22 with them is kinda meh (still allowed, but lower score on impression). Check with me if you are not sure.

Futuristic and fantasy builds accepted. As long they look human made.


Rules:

  1. Cannon part is mandatory.
  2. It can be a replica, imitation/ripoff or completely fictional.
  3. New (original) design, own creation, successor of this post (Just delete the cannon and take the cockpit or xml edit the link.)
  4. 200 parts minimum
  5. Max two entries.
  6. Tracks, pilot and smoke (still broken) mods are the only PARTS mods allowed
  7. Offensive entries, exploits to meet the part count or low quality/fast builds will be disqualified (if is obvious you put some effort on it, but your skill is not high, i will accept it.

Judging criteria:

Visuals: 10 points How good your build looks. Overall shape, coloring, details, decals, logos etc
Construction: 10 points Your construction quality. Nudging, angling, smoothness, surface fighting, custom sections (landing gear, tracks, weapons, interiors etc), parts count efficiency, collision sounds, disabled CalculateDrag...
Performance: 10 points How well your build flies, drive, sails, fires.
Penalties will be added based on build complexity. A simple cannon that fires only will score max 5, while a propelled artillery/attack plane with a lot of features can go up to 10. I will go nazi on this category, if your plane has autoroll, your tank accelerates like a Ferrari or your battleship turns like Flipper, I am gonna make you cry.
Impressions: 10 points
2 - Description (Don't care about stories and fancy photos, but I need controls, links to inspiration source, main features detailed so i won't miss anything cool)
2 - Cool factor of your design choice (a Schwerer Gustav will impress for sure or Zeppelin with mortars hahaha)
3 - How much i enjoyed operating your build.
3 - Funky trees inputs usage
Accuracy: 5 points One point awarded for matching the Blueprints (replicas/imitations/ripoffs only), Dimensions, Loaded weight, Max Speed and Cannon specs. I won't go nazi on those, just be sure you are close. For fictional i will speculate. Be sure you put the links with data in description (for imitations/ripoff provide the link to the thing you got inspiration from)


Awards:

2nd : 15 upvotes and 2 spotlights of your choice (unless you are Spiritus Raptor)
3rd : 10 upvotes and 1 spotlight of your choice

    @spefyjerbf yes, i know your builds. Still, it will be hard to evaluate your vehicle specs accuracy, so you will have to make a good description story, telling about materials used (heavy or ultra light), engines technology (hypersonic or warp), weapons. So, i can evaluate if weight, max speed and weapon specs are possible even for a distant future. You'll miss 2 points by default (blueprints and dimensions matching), you'll get the other 3 if your loaded weight, speed and weaponry is plausible.
    Be sure your build looks human made, even if technology is ultra advanced

    @grizzlitn you can detach the cockpit, drag and save the entire build to subassemblies.
    Than, use my cannon build, keep only the cockpit and take the entire build from subassemblies, connect the cockpit and you have successor.

    @typeZERO be sure you write the controls in description and i will use them. Control scheme is yours. Honestly, a gun is aimed much easier with Pitch/Roll using the mouse. Some prefer pitch and roll for vehicle maneuvering. I don't care, use whatever you want

    Comrade BogdanX, I created Something, But it is So Much better if Controlled by Throttle for Moving and Pitch Roll on Cannon Control. Is this Good?
