    Spring bug, physics issue, memory leak

    AMD Athlon X3 445 3.1 GHz 8 GB RAM Nvidia GeForce GTS 450 Win7 x64 .05 1. I have a strange issue where springs that are adjusted to e.g. 10 suddenly are at 2 when placing another spring or do any parameter tuning. It also sometimes happens when loading up a construct. A random spring will be at...

    Well, I worked on it a bit and improved the firinng mechanism. Now it really fires only one cannon at once. I used the new torch block for it. It is just approached to the cannon via a piston. Also, I made the machine mobile. Attached Files

    I weaponized the tower

    Ahahaha this is great! How come nobody has thought of this before?

    Yes, this is exactly what is says. A gatling gun. While I found the recent update a bit underwhelming (I would have wished for more features before new blocks), I really like the new canon mechanics. No more piano playing for autofire! Just rev up the flames and let 'er rip...

    Calculating Machine

    I know that some people have already made logic gates, but until we get proper copy/paste functionality, it probably won't be viable. On the other hand, I am not really interested in digital calculating, I leave that to more capable people :D But when the time comes I would really love to make a...

    Pendulum (without pit)

    Holy shit, I played around with it a bit, put some weights on the end in order to increase the force with which it mows through people, and suddenly: MERRY GO-ROUND PENDULUM THAT ALSO ACCELERATES TO A CERTAIN EXTENT. Try it: pendel.bsg Although it might not start immediately with the not...

    Pendulum (without pit)

    In the old forums some guy did experiments with a pendulum. Since we are but men, of course the sensible thing to do is to weaponize it. Those of you who have read E.A. Poe's story "Pit and Pendulum" know what a swinging knife above one's chest or head can elicit. On the other hand, those who...

    mbennock`s Rooty Tooty Point and Shooty thread

    This is a really, really small catapult platform that still has a pretty good range. It is, however, not a design by me. This specific design I adopted from some guy on /egg/ and I believe to remember that someone on the old forum also did something like this. Since I don't know your names...

    mbennock`s Rooty Tooty Point and Shooty thread

    This was the original version of my semi auto, but it proved unviable with the current blocks. Basically, I wanted to make a real magazine-fed gun. Of course that didn't work out, as pistons are a) too weak to even support more than two boulders and b) they are not compressible enough, so that...

    Custom block size

    I don't know whether it has already been suggested, but I would like to see custom sized wooden blocks, i.e. either by dragging or by entering the dimensions. Like a table, 1x1 to 10x10 for example. That way you could make bars and plates and such in a more convenient way than putting block...

    Muscular Movement

    Next try, this time only one finger, slightly different setup. Springs are still not ideal, especially considering how many of them I have to use at the base phalange. 1 for up, 2 for down (which doesn't give any effect since the stuff at the back is so heavy. finger.bsg...

    mbennock`s Rooty Tooty Point and Shooty thread

    Last, my pride and joy, although this could also fit into the mechanism section, as I think it will can be used in many heavier vehicles (I have already seen someone build a Katyusha with it). The SPG (Sling Propelled Grenade) This is a cross-section through the launcher. It is fairly...

    mbennock`s Rooty Tooty Point and Shooty thread

    Alright, we are starting to approach the crazy stuff. You know, drum magazines and such are cool, but what about a semi automatic cannon? I have it here. It can shoot boulders. The Gravity Fed Semi Automatic Boulder Sling Cannon This has developed from my attempt at creating a magazine fed...
