Imperial /k/ommando Thread: No Lightsabers Allowed Edition Stormtrooper 01/01/2020 (Wed) 17:53:32 No.1504 [Reply] [Last]
Time to talk about blasters, slugthrowers, and other non-lightsaber weapons and designs. Which is the most practical, powerful or aesthetically pleasing? What would you take with you when the Day of the Rebellion comes and SHTF? Superweapons are also allowed but only the weapon, all fleet discussion goes in the ship thread.

>>5099 "Turbolaser" is a particular, specific, thing. It's basically restricted to capital ships and space station defenses. As for the exploding, I presume being totally immobilized allows fire to damage it by targeting obvious weak points (neck, underbelly, vision port) which are fairly difficult targets to hit while it's moving and fighting back. >>6324 Given >it's standard for Planetary Defense Forces >artists can't agree on the details >Rebellion has just that many I have to suspect BlasTech licensed the TDP for local production and there's dozens (if not hundreds) of patterns out there that can almost all be mixed and matched. We know that CEC licenses out their obsolete designs, presumably so it can say spare parts exist for its older models without tying up its own facilities.
>>5099 I mean I just assume the fall damaged it >>3788 dubs of based. Man they were trolling with that Nar Shaddar level
>>5106 There's an in-universe explanation for why the Death Star exploded into fireworks, rather than fracturing into large burning chunks (aside from giving the film an orgasmic climax). It's established that the Death Star can destroy entire planets, and it gets destroyed when it fires full-blast with a damaged reactor core (because of the proton torpedo). This would turn the DS's destructive power against itself, which explains its total incineration.
>>5099 IIRC the shots that caused it to explode hit right on the seam between the neck and the body. I always assumed that was a weak point that would otherwise be very hard to hit.

The entertainment droid's holoprojector started up, bathing the previously dark room in the blue light one normally associates with a cheap holoprojector. The three dimensional image it created showed a Zabrak male with his dark hair in a ponytail sitting at a table in front of a strange looking and time worn blaster rifle. The red geometric lines tattooed on the presenter's face identified him as a trained engineer, while the ones made up of black swirls marked him a historian. The holo was then joined by an audio recording of the cheerful man's lecture >Hi guys. Thanks for watching another holo from Forgotten Blasters. I'm Ilit Mak-Cuth and I'm here today at the Hydians Auction House on Chandrila taking a look at some of the blasters they are going to be selling in their upcoming auction. What we have here is a standard Republic pattern PulseWave blaster. While at first you might be thinking "They made literally trillions of these things, how is that a forgotten blaster?", but it's actually very rare to find one in such good condition these days, thousands of years later, so I thought this would be a good example to make a holo on it and show you guys. The camera focused in on the ancient blaster, hiding the Zabrak and the table from view. Now suspended on air, the floating, glowing, weapon slowly rotated around in the dark room, inviting the viewer to soak in every detail of the valuable antique. While out of view, the Zabrak's monologue continued to explain the history of Pulse-Wave blasters >Pulse-Wave blasters are largely associated with the Mandalorian Wars and the "Old Sith Wars", the series conflicts between the Old Republic and various Sith Empires roughly 4000 years ago. A lot of people hear "The Old Sith Wars" and immediately think of soldiers with energy shields hopped up on stimulants running at each other with vibroblades trying to cut the other's face off. While yes, that is largely true, there was actually also a fantastic amount of experimentation going on with blasters during this time period. You had electric blasters, sonic blasters, early disruptors, plasma projectors, and even a few incendiary blasters, but by far the most common ranged weapon was something like this. In emphasis, the Zabrak's disembodied hand appeared to point at the relic before once again disappearing from view >"Pulse-Wave" technology is the ancestor of the current blaster. Instead of the compressed particle bolts we know today, a pulse-wave blaster fires energy in a way that creates spacial distortions that can separate molecules. This is roughly as powerful as a modern blaster but only within about 30 to 35 meters. After that the effectiveness quickly dissipates as the distance increases and past about 225 meters it can't even make holes in durasheet. >A lot of people ask that at that point "Why not just use a slugthrower? They're lethal out to 500 meters or more." and that's because two major advantages to a pulse-wave system. The first is the energy shields mentioned earlier. The omni-present Old Republic era energy shields could cleanly stop any slug coming at them without difficulty, but a pulse-wave would batter them and eventually get through after many repeat hits so a squad can concentrate firepower and still has a good chance of taking down a shielded target. The second is, as we often see, one of logistics. You have to actually transport the slugs to the battlefield to supply the men and droids using those slugthrowers. You'd see less than 100 shots per kilogram, and once you were done with the cartridge packs holding that ammo they were useless without a whole industrial setup and mining operation to fuel it. By contrast, even early blasters like this you get about a thousand shots per kilogram of power packs, and when you're done you only need energy and a small amount of Tibana to refill them. That kind of thing may not seem like a lot when you're out hunting on your own, but it maters a lot when you're sending millions of troops to the other side of the Galaxy and they have to bring all the gear they'll need for up to a year with them. That's not to say you didn't see slugthrowers during these conflicts, but the units using them were definitely specialists. The hologram returned to depicting Mak-Cuth and his table and he started to close out his lecture. >The story of pulse-wave blasters mostly ends with the invention of and proliferation of the modern blaster rifle just after the Old Sith Wars. They're longer range and better in nearly every way compared to the pulse-wave system. Nobody made new ones after that except for a brief period during the post-Russan Dark Ages when some smaller manufacturers in isolated areas reverted to the technology after they were cut off from regular imports of materials and tooling needed to make proper blasters. Even then they were definitely a second-line weapon or civilian hold out blasters where the range didn't really mater since the user wasn't likely to be shooting at much past 30 yards anyways. >Thanks for watching everybody. If you want to own this exquisite example of a Pulse-Wave Rifle, this is an auction house and it plus are few other examples are going to be up for sale in the upcoming auction. To place a bid on this example, you can send a holonet or subspace transmission to HAH at Cha. Full details in the attached datalog. If you want to see more details on how they work you can play the second part of this holo, where I take it apart and show you a full holo-scan of the internals and tell you how they all work. If you want to hear about the Pulse-Wave's even older predecessor, I also have a set of holos on the Core World Arms BR1-Z, which is just a really weird and fascinating design. The Zabrak disappeared and the the closing credits played, thanking camera droid M1-14, the Hydians Auction House, and Mak-Cuth's many patrons that make the travel and research for the show possible, but the silence is interrupted by the return of the presenter's voice, clearly recorded on a different audio setup >I realize I should add a quick word of caution while I'm editing this, and that's that before you get both your hearts set on owning one of these you should check your planet's laws. A lot of anti-disruptor laws are very poorly written and define "DIsruptor" so overly broadly they include Pulse-Waves. Nothing I can do about that.

What are your guy's thoughts on the vintage collection?
>>6396 Of the little stuff I have seen, it just a bunch of nerds buying old toys to complete their collection, because of nostalgia. I even heard some people say that they are collectors that bully others because they 'dare' to 3D print parts to complete toys that are broken or missing parts, the toy must be 100% pure or some wierd shit like that.

>>6335 >Han colded blooded killed Greedo And that is where you are wrong, Greedo had a blaster on Han the whole conversation, even if Han shot first or second it wouldn't matter since he killed Greedo in self-defense.
>>6336 It did make a difference, since one thing is to shoot preemptively, Han was actually delaying Greedo by making him talk so he could pull his gun and put into position to shoot him dead, another is Greedo actually shooting at Han and them he acting in self defense https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Han_shot_first > The change was due to Lucas not wanting Han to come off as a cold-blooded killer, but rather acting in self-defense, with one rumor stating the scene, in its unaltered form, risked giving the entire Special Edition a PG-13 rating, thus limiting the audience for the theatrical run. >In a February 9, 2012 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, George Lucas indicated that Greedo fired first, even in the original film, and pointed out that the exchange of blaster fire between Han Solo and Greedo was shot in close-up which made the scene ambiguous. This ambiguity, along with viewers' desire for Han Solo to be a cold-blooded killer, caused the audience to draw the wrong conclusions; that is, they only thought Han shot first. Wide shots he added in later releases of the film served to make the actual results of the encounter more obvious.[6] The suggestion, coming several years after the first occurrence of the alleged "change," appears to contradict the film's script and other evidence suggesting that Greedo originally did not fire at Han.[7]
>>6339 >a xeno is pointing a blaster at you >shooting first is not self-defense >mfw The only scene when he would be a cold-blooded killer, would be if Greedo is NOT pointing a blaster at him.
>>6340 Yes it's self-defense, but Han shooting first gives him a harder edge that he's supposed to have, in order to complete his arc as >>6335 said. and as >>6339 said, the sequence shows that Han was subtly reaching for his gun, delaying and distracting Greedo until he could take a shot. Clearly the intent was there, so it makes no sense for Greedo to shoot first; you could almost say it "subverts expectations". It also reflects poorly on Greedo, who I think was a professional bounty hunter, not an amateur. If Greedo shoots first, and misses at point-blank range, that makes him seem like an ineffective retard, whereas with Han shooting first, he just got caught off guard by his quarry. And for Greedo to shoot right after confirms him as a serious challenge to Han, and his miss is understandable if he took a blaster bolt at the same time he squeezed the trigger. While I'm on this topic, I remember reading Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina, a compendium of short stories which varied but were generally pretty good. Greedo's story was a mixed bag -- I really dug the backstory with the clan wars, Navik the Red, all that shit was cool. However, I hated how they characterized Greedo as a newfag retard who got played for a fool, set up to die by his enemies. It just didn't fit the original scene, at all. If I decided canon, I would keep the clan/warlord backstory while ditching the rest.
>>6344 Yeah, the new scene looks bad, but I still think that Han is the same person in both scenarios. >I remember reading Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina I haven't read any of his stuff, but I manage to read all the old marvel comics.

Hello /sw/, ICUP 7 is still being worked on, and progress is still steady, but we need your help. If you have a good PC enough to run PES 2017 and to stream it, or if you are willing to commentate, please contact us at anon.cafe/icup/. Currently we have three potential streamers, but the more the merrier. In regards to your team, you seem to be missing 3 subs. We need their player names and numbers, preferably which position they will substitute for, and optionally any specific player tactics. Finally, if you are capable of doing 3D modelling, creating OC, working on the wiki or just helping in any way possible feel free to reach out as well.
Hi /film/. If we don't hear back from you in the next couple of days, we will remove your team from this year's ICUP due to lack of interest.

Aspyr also abruptly fired the game’s art director and design director this month. In a series of meetings throughout July, Aspyr’s two studio heads told employees that the project is on pause and that the company will look for new contracts and development opportunities, said the people, who were not authorized to speak publicly about the situation.

Good SW Content Thread. Stormtrooper 07/02/2021 (Fri) 23:44:04 No.4692 [Reply]
This is a thread for all good Star Wars content online including webms, memes, image marcos, videos, 3D models, so on and so forth. I am mainly focusing on video content with my post as most Star Wars content online is terrible. All those monotone channels that spend 10 minutes going over the same comic 4-5 times to answer a question that can be answered in a minute or two at most. "What did Anakin Skywalker think of the tax rate" type stuff. So lets post content that is actually worthwhile. When it comes to edit of the movies Nerd Vault might be the best channel online. An example of a video of his would be https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tztJLKxSMg Nearly every force ghost of x talks to y scenario has been done by them. They are pretty underrated to be honest. This guy https://www.youtube.com/c/WilkinsAnimations/videos is animating the Dark Empire story in parts. He has done 2 episodes so far and it is pretty good. Better than anything Disney is doing at least. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJ3rGAkW6LD-G9Zup374xQg/videos Anyone got other content to share. (This isnt supposed to be redundant with the webm threads or any meme threads. Its supposed to have a broader scope and focus on hidden SW gems. More high quality stuff as opposed to shitposts).
