Organization Form

Unread postAuthor: CannonCreator » Fri Oct 12, 2007 11:09 pm

I made these 2 forms on microsoft word to help organize designs, cannon ideas, and all the canno dimensions, parts so that designs and shopping for parts is easier and not a big mess. I know some people like to just keep it in there head, but when your doing big proects this will help.
All you got to do is download them, and print them out. I made 1 for Pneumatic Cannons, and another for Combustion Cannons.

Combustion Form:

http://www.freewebs.com/cannoncreations ... 0sheet.doc

Pneumatic Form:

http://www.freewebs.com/cannoncreations ... 0Sheet.doc

These links are off of my site, that I uploaded the files to. So anyway I hope this helps you guys organize your cannon designs. Tell me what you think.

Pretty nice. I'm sure this could also be used for posting with a few modifications to the chart (like for pneumatics: adverage pressure for firing.)

It's a stupid idea.

I suppose I could print a bunch out and make a couple of sabots with them...that's alot more useful, but a waste of ink.

It's not the greatest thing ever, but it sure as hell saves me from making my own :P

Usually I just write it on a pice of paper in a list and 'visualize' what it'll look like at the store, but this will save some people some time, no harm in it Modder, better then nothing.

Thanks for that CC.

Personally I probably wouldn't use it but i'm sure others would.
