  • you are propably getting shot at by a killer or a thug

    1. It wasn't against dedicated killers.
    2. Thugs don't shoot all of a sudden, they are very visible and loud.

    , from behind, without visual contact first, and in combat situations on the warfield it would be too big and unpractical to use, would immobilise the user when in usage, require immense physical power for stabilisation while getting shot at

    I was thinking about it being more of a offensive weapon with defensive Bonus. Also one could balance out the whole thing by putting a weight at/in/as the Handle, like it is done with Swords.

    useless against any type of explosive munitions.

    I was not intending to fight a Tank or Missile Launcher with an Umbrella.


    Good ways to use it would have been (if it worked):
    Charging at the Enemy with the Umbrella as Shield.
    If the Umbrella has a slightly pointy Spike at its end you can even stab someone with it.
    Protection against Grenade Fragments would also be possible.

  • I was not intending to fight a Tank or Missile Launcher with an Umbrella.


    You are clearly misusing your umbrellas then.


    Can I also point out that most of the time your umbrella would be used for staying dry when it's raining, so having bullet holes in it would very much defeat the point of having it.

    145 Mods isn't too many. 9 types of copper and 8 types of tin aren't too many. 3 types of coffee though?

    I know that you believe that you understood what you think I said, but I am not sure you realise that what you read was not what I meant.

    I see this too much.

  • My GregTech.lang also errors. I get an error every time game starts.

  • @Greg : Why kevlar ? Use carbon nanotubes, it's way harder, way more resistant, and and gazillion times lighter ^.^ But use double layered sheet carbon nanotubes with a non newtonian fluid Inside of it, as carbon nanotube will stop the bullet, but will not reduce much of the impact, making the bullet impact powerful enough to break you a bone or 2 :P :/

  • Well if we're gonna be talking about stuff technology can't do yet, why not just use neutronium? XD

    I am not speaking of charging tanks of course. I mean any sorts of grenade, shrapnels etc, the legs would be unprotected.


    I
    Charging at the Enemy with the Umbrella as Shield.


    Not really, you either have tun run ducked, or open your legs. Even if you somehow manage to cover yourself from the enemy while advancing, anything with a caliber from 5.56 would simply rip it away from your hands/destabilize you enough to land a second shot and kill



    Protection against Grenade Fragments would also be possible.


    To protect from grenade fragments you need something like 3cm of armor, no way. Besides, even if bz some magical ways it would withstand the explosion, provided the umbrella owner manages to open it and align himself to the explosions center, the umbrella driver would still be incapaciated bz the blastwave and impact of the splinters on the umbrella himself - the same thing happened badzillions of times in ww2, when the early soviet tanks could not penetrate the tigers armor, but after 8-9 shots the tigers crew was dead from ipact energy and heat. So, no, Greg, my verdict is still :thumbdown:

  • (real life) you could show them the benefits of nuclear power... it's much better than coal.
    With a coal powerplant you put a lot of carbon dioxide in the air, with a nuclear power you put nuclear waste in the ground so who is going to complain? the moles? the worms? (I don't think they live that deep in the ground though)
    And secondly why won't we use the heat produced by nuclear waste?


    uhm, that's what RTGs do, right?

    Native language german, please point out mistakes to me. forget it, my english is better than that of a good deal of people on the forums anyway.


    IC Related Quotes thread. If you ever need some good puns.

  • Nuclear waste does not, in fact, produce enough heat to produce any power. An RTG requires that it produces at least enough heat to warm up a thermocouple to produce power. And the amount produced is very little, this is why a very radioative isotope is needed. A nuclear power plant would not normally produce byproducts strong enough to run an RTG. It would not really be enough to do more than maybe warm a cup of coffee. Plus the byproducts of fission are very diluted, spread out over a huge area. It would be very difficult to extract them into a concentrated area, and still not powerful enough to harvest any useful energy from.

  • Greg, I would like to request that you give the player "Nexey_" the pumpkin of shame in the next GT version for illegal use of the word "legitly". thanks :)


    also, while we are at it, I would like to suggest that when you re-implement the laser engraver, that you give lenses a chance of failure based on the rarity and quality of the gem used

    Well, didn't nuclear waste storage bunkers need to be able to withstand the 60°c that the nuclear waste would generate? (I know this isn't very warm at all!)
    but wouldn't it be possible somehow to undilute the waste?

  • Objection !
    I used legitly the word "legitly", not illegaly. I request putting the pumpkin of shame on SpwnX.

    Kenken makes his triumphant return to call someone out on an illegitimate use of the non-word abbreviation "legitly"


    Explain Nexey_'s use of the term and why it would be considered legitimate or illegal

    That's barely enough to make water evaporate slowly.. that's a fair temperature for tea, but certainly not making power! You need at least 400-500F (200C+) to be of any use for steam, and around 300-400F for a proper thermocouple to generate power. So, no. Not even close.


    As for undiluting: Do you really want to sift through hundreds of thousands of gallons of water and thousands or more of pounds of rust, calcium and other water deposits, reactor structures, used hazmat equipment, and tools, just to get a couple kilograms of material, from years of an entire plant's nuclear fission, which would only be enough to produce a few hundred watt-hours a year over the course of 80 years? Didn't think so. It'd be dangerous and UTTERLY unprofitable. After the *millions and millions* of dollars of expense processing, refining, and condensing it all, assuming it could be done within a reasonable amount of time as well, you would generate only enough power, after 80 years, to power a house for maybe a few months. One house. Standard 3-person occupancy.


    No.


    There seems to be this ludicrous myth that fission is some ghastly, inefficient, toxin-spewing deadly process of waste, when that simply is not true. What is flushed as 'nuclear waste' is only dangerous for a relatively short period of time, and is not necessarily being put away forever. Actually most of it is intended to be dug back up, eventually, for re-processing. A lot of waste is already reprocessed, but it's an expensive and unprofitable venture that is not very well justified at all, so for now, we bury most of it until we can come back to it when it's safer and easier to process and, hopefully, we can reprocess it more efficiently and less costly.


    Spent nuclear fuel, IE the cores, are NOT part of that waste, contrary to popular belief. Spent cores are typically re-enriched, or utilized in a breeder reactor, until every useful bit is spent. This is then typically sold to weapons manufacturers (depleted uranium) since it is mostly U-238 and contains precious little fissile uranium: too little to extract, and much too little to use. We're talking maybe a couple micrograms per dozens of kilograms. <0.3%. Natural, unrefined and unprocessed uranium contains ~0.72-0.78% U-235 by content. Depleted uranium is fairly safe in terms of radiation: I wouldn't sleep next to it every night, but it's fine to handle without any protections beyond simple leather gloves and such. It's still a toxic metal so, like lead, you don't want to go eating it. But it's really not a big deal.


    Most of what makes up nuclear waste is water... like, 99.999999% water. It's just the coolant water that is in the reactor chamber which may be contaminated by tiny amounts of transuranic waste, actinides, chemical sludge, resins, etc. A large constituant is also things that may be contaminated and are basically chucked down there until it can be canned and hauled off, like tools, suits, gloves, etc. It also includes bolts, screws, braces, pieces of metal, a bunch of rust, waste in the water (salts, calcium, etc.), impurities, and eventually the reactor equipment, containment wall, and retaining walls themselves. The 'waste' is basically the entire reactor core and anything that comes in contact, over time.


    The average plant produces only around 27 tons of such waste, but it does add up with so many plants and over time, since we've been amassing it since 1938 (not all waste is from nuclear plants. Bombs, tests, and especially medical equipment like x-ray machines and CT-scanners all produce the majority of the world's nuclear waste, currently. And ironically is also responsible for most of the 'nuclear incidents' to date.)

  • We don't use the Freezing Point of Sea Water as measurement of Temperature over here.

    Good for you. No need to be rude. Kelvin or GTFO. XD



    Also, isn't Celsius based on the freezing point of water too? *Checks.* Yep:
    The unit was known until 1948 as "centigrade" from the Latin centum translated as 100 and gradustranslated as "steps".
    From 1744 until 1954, 0 °C was defined as the freezing point of water and 100 °C was defined as the boiling point of water, both at a pressure of one standard atmospherewith mercury being the working material.
