Let's get a blaster thread going. No, not a "blaster control" RP thread, but a serious discussion about if these were real weapon designs. Let's start off with the DL-44. Where would the magazine/gas container go? And while the right-set scope makes for a better draw, it also makes using the damn scope impractical. I always just assumed it had some lock-to-side function kind of like a high tech magnifier that locked to either the top or left when unholstered.
Only if it's logical explanations of the vehicles/weapons/armor etc.
I hate when drawers draw cool shit like this and don't actually give them Deeces or something.
I really dig the original concepts of the starfighters
The Dorling Kindersley exploded-diagram books are great for this sort of thing OP. It might be rubbish, but it's convincing rubbish.
too bad old republic is shit, they have some really neat starship designs
>we will never play shoot scum with this blaster in Star Wars 1313
let us pray
search "Star Wars cross sections" and you'll turn up a bunch. DK do cross-section books for all sorts of topics from medieval castles to cruise liners, but their Star Wars stuff is great too, really creates a sense of a living world and not just props. Some of the best kids' stuff there was, really fired the imagination.
in my opinion, it needed more space battles
I adore the book these cross-section pictures are from. They are so god damn awesome. I just love them.
The "Essential Guide" series is another great book series that does something similar only it doesn't just look at ships and tech.
This. The Battle of Coruscant had so much potential but the real battle scene was only a minute.
that really bothered me a lot anon
It's called Star WARS for a reason.
Lots of big battles in space.
Also a lot of the props used in the original trilogy are WWI era and WWII era weapons mocked up to look more like they belong in a Sci-fi setting.
Plus, Star Wars is just generally awesome.
If you cant find a way to make a blaster you could always use this instead
Would there be any sense in having a magazine filled with small one use power cells in a blaster, as opposed to one large power cell?
If your single power cell dies you have no weapon, if one of your multitude dies no big deal. Maybe a tiny amount of power from each cell can be used to drive a tiny motor to cycle the next...
Since everyone carries spare power cells anyway.
>unless you want a star wars version of this
Wish there were more "operator" moments in SWTOR
Earlier drafts say Greedo shot first
You can't deny that
But I still stand, Han should have shot first, Greedo shooting and missing at point blank doesn't make sense in the star wars
