Fuck shit ass tits I really want Halo: Reach. but I don't have an Xbox. (I sold it) God dammit anyone know the best price?
How about we shut the fuck up about how plasma weapons work and just let it be.
[QUOTE=Snail562;24448309]Since the ball of plasma is so small (let's think of it as a star), it uses up all of its energy so fast it asplodes into a nova. Stay with me here. Now, smaller stars are hotter and brighter, correct? (correct me if I'm wrong) And since this plasma is such a tiny ball (compared to an actual star) shouldn't it burn so brightly that you get instantly blinded from looking at it? (I only have a general idea of what I'm talking about)[/QUOTE] Not all stars have the same amount of energy in them.

Now explain the laser cannon.

[QUOTE=ZapDing;24448394]Now explain the laser cannon.[/QUOTE] Electrified gas is pumped through lenses, collimates to a beam, destroys whatever's in front of it. I'm not even going to try and explain the charge.
Here's my highly scientific take on the subject following the paint trend of show and tell: [img]http://imageshack.dk/imagesfree/bcF25329.png[/img]

[QUOTE=PistolKid;24448379]Not all stars have the same amount of energy in them.[/QUOTE] While this is true, I thought that that only affected the star's lifespan, not how brightly it shines. [QUOTE=the_killer24;24448388]Covenant 'plasma' is 3k degrees C. The temperature of the sun's corona is 5505 degrees C.[/QUOTE] But don't some yellow stars burn brighter than some blue stars, even though blue stars are hotter? [img]http://www.raincrossscience.com/science/astronomy/hrDiagram_Color.gif[/img] [editline]4:46PM[/editline] Ok, never mind, it seems that blue stars are always brighter, other than a few exceptions. I guess you wouldn't be insta blinded. But then again most of the plasma is blue plasma, so couldn't it still seriously damage your eyes by looking at it?
BmB is a genius.
[QUOTE=Snail562;24448406]never!!!!!![/QUOTE] Fire, provided it's hot enough to ionise the gas (which most fire is), is a plasma, fire doesn't blind you.

rated late
[QUOTE=the_killer24;24448614]rated late[/QUOTE] rated me late? Also what would you think if later on in Reach's lifetime that they started releasing additional armors somehow? Do you think they will release some more free maps such as Cold Storage they released for Halo 3 EDIT: Page King boys!

[QUOTE=fish puncher;24448509]BmB is a genius.[/QUOTE] Thanks, it took me over 30 seconds to create that diagram. It isn't easy being this smart.

Now explain the carbine.
Ok, but I'm getting a little burnt out on this plasma subject (get it?), so let's discuss moreso how awesome Reach is going to be again. I for one am going to make a map that has one room tilted (like distortion from Halo 3), another room submerged in water as possible (whether it be knee deep or fully submerged), a cave (I'll make it with rocks) and an outdoor ass-kicking area. In the middle of the ass-kicking outdoor area there will be a four story building with two elevator shafts, one with a working elevator, and the other an empty elevator shaft which you can jump up using little ledges. [editline]4:57PM[/editline] I am saying my forge idea so that people will say theirs, and then I can steal their ideas and put it into my map. :buddy:
Lasers are something real. You don't have to explain that. Glow is because it's freaking powerful enough to burn holes in military vehicles from the future.
[QUOTE=ZapDing;24448734]Now explain the carbine.[/QUOTE] [IMG]http://i269.photobucket.com/albums/jj66/the_killer23/carbine.jpg[/IMG] why am i even doing this
I'm gonna try to make a race map. Making one in Halo 3 that's actually fun is impossible without using tricks. I wanna make mine go through all of Forge World. It'll probably run through the sky so I'll have to make barriers...
I'm watching red vs blue again. :iia:
