Okay... so this badge idea is quite working out now, but...
How are we going to assign badges to people?
A special badgeteam wich can be handled in requests for badges?
What are the rules?
Does a x J energy output on GGDT mean that you have achieved that velocity, or is a video of a chrony and projectile weighing needed?
Are we only going to reward innovative badges?
I think that would ruin some of the fun.
I understand that a "power" achievement is awarded by spending money on something big, but its still fun to do so.
Just to show that you have done "it", and that it gives people a reason to build guns.
Its awesome to achieve stuff.
The innovative badges would mostly be awarded for loading and fueling mechanisms and (semi) automatic stuff. Maybe a new valve.
A thing like "the first hybrid" is a breakthrough that cant be done again. We are on the limit of power. We can only advance in automatic stuff.
A 2" bore 10x hybrid piercing a thick steel plate might not be innovative, but its amusing to see right?
