Im thinking about doing the plasma rifle clip.
i found the plasma pistol clip done in the complete section however.
My question is; should i use the plasma pistol clip entry as a template, and save time.
or.
Write the rifle clip entry completly from the begining?
My doctor says that I have a malformed public duty gland and a natural deficiency in moral fiber, and that I am therfore exused from saving Universes.

You could use it as a template, since both weapons are related, but be sure to make them different enough :)

Oh, thank you very much for taking this ct!, it bugs me to see those red lines in the asset list right between the plasma weapons <_<

The plasma clips will need to say the same thing in order not to condradict one another.. We can pretty much do that by changing pistol to rifle while making a few fluff tweaks. Personally, I think other texts are more urgent at this point, but if you still want to take a crack at it; best use the plasma pistol clip as a template ;)

my first go at it:
------
Plasma rifle clip

The plasma rifle clip is a relatively simple piece of technology. In both mechanical and electrical terms it is easy to produce and use. However, the chemistry contained within is more complicated. Each alien weapon fires an optimized type of ammunition, and so the clip relies on a highly balanced set of chemical and physical reactions.

Within the clip are two compartments that hold the reacting ingredients. The first tank holds a gel-like mixture containing highly fractured Xenium. It also includes iron and uranium, along with traces of several other elements. The other tank contains heavy water. It should be noted that both containers are kept highly isolated to prevent malfunction and the risk to user safety is low.

When the two ingredients are mixed, and a high-frequency pulsed EM stimulus applied, the Xenium reacts violently in a manner best described as an explosion. The energy released in the reaction is sufficient to cause fusion of the deuterium atoms in the heavy water; a chain reaction that releases even more energy and superheats the mixture. The result, contained by magnetic fields, is plasma – an ionic, electrically conductive gas. The resulting burst, directed by the weapon, is similar to ball of lighting
, but deviates by actually being an extremely high heated form of mass.

This particular clip is designed to administer moderate amounts of mixture to the plasma rifle. The rifle clip, compared to the pistol clip, seem too manufactured with the purpose of supplying an accurate weapon, rather then weapon with a low reaction time. As a result of this, the clip is marginally less efficient at supplying the rifle with the mixture for the purpose of rapid fire, but shows a higher efficiency at supplying an accurate amount of the mixture, and improves the performance of the weapon.

Ok, see if you can substitue "mixture" for something else.

Also, I think it would be prudent to play around with the last sentence some more.. :)

Highly fractured? Couldn't you just say it's crushed Xenitum? :D Maybe a better way of putting it would be, "....containing xentium which is grounded into a fine powder..." Just a suggestion.

What does the amount in the mixture have to do with accuracy? The magnetic conductors in the gun direct the plasma (and the soldier, of course). Now if you said the range of the weapon is dependent on the mixture I could see that....

don't see a problem with the heavely fractured(its sciency talk), though the guy who wrote that did misspell it, easy fix.(il do it now, fixed)

plasma is a delicat thing, and propelling things with magnetics require presision, this means that the propeled substance(the plama) needs th have the a exact mass to function properly. its not like a rifle, where you just blow a metal pice through a pipe.

I know, it just seemed like you were trying to fancy it up too much. Usually you just say ground up or crushed.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


But that has nothing to do with accuracy. The magnetics involved DOES have something to do with the accuracy. If you have 1ounce of plasma going through a barrel or 1,000,000 tons of plasma it doesn't mean the accuracy is going away (though I'd imagine you'd hit more with 1,000,000 tons). Now if the magnetic part of the rifle isn't working properly the plasma won't be directed in the right direction, which would have an effect the trajectory of the burst. Like a normal rifle, the bullet's size and composition doesn't determine where it goes, the barrel and the gunpowder (or in this case, the magnetic rails) does.

Actually, Qonfused is right, science talk, remember it's a scientific report, and saying "crushed" in a report, that's just not right. -_-

I'm not sure about this, but I lean towards Qonfused's point, I think that propelling anything using magnetic fields... that's gotta be precise, but I guess it's open for discussion.

if you put a bullt with a sligtly smaller or larger calibre in a rifle, and fire it. there are 2 posibilities:
1. the barrel explodes.
2. the barrel fails to rotate the bullet, resulting in lessened accuracy.
with plasma, i dont want to think about it.
About the right combination: if you don't kombine the ingredients correctly, the fusion/fission is either going to happen later, or earlier.
later; bad for accuracy.
earlier, not good you the user of the rifle.

I see your point, but the difference with plasma is that you don't need to spin it and there is no too large of a calibre plasma burst. The plasma rifle is Push/Pulling the plasma out of the barrel. It's kinda of like a gauss rifle, it's not the size that counts, it's the force that guides the slug/bolt.

No problem with the ingredients. Of course, I though the rifle CT said it was contained in at chamber that magnetically held it in, which made it safer to use. Also, if it reacts too late it's not going anywhere, in needs to be in a plasma state to work (I think).

Here's a website I found on plasma weapons and some other related stuff:

Of course if we follow this website then the aliens aren't going to be much of a threat. :boohoo:

the thing is:
A plasma rifle would have to work somhow like a rail gun. It would use electro-magnets along the barrel. These magnets needs to be higly tuned, as to when they shuld be on or off. When somone pulls the trigger, all of them should turn on, but as the plasma travels through the barrel, the magnets that the plasma passes needs to be switched off, so that they dont end upp working agains the other magnets. If the mass of the plasma changes, these magnets would then either switch off to early, or to late. Both these scenarios would result in a jerky discharge, and in a lessend velocity. And lessend velocity means lessend accuracy.

if the ingredients fussion/fission to late, well thats self explaining, this mussnt happen.
As for to early: magnetics provide the sorundings with protection, isolating the plasma. Magnetics however, cannot stopp heat emited in form of elctromagnetic radiation. The result would be a extremly hot gun, not nice to use.

[PLASMA RIFLE] CLIP
X-Net://Pegasus.net/Ammo/[Plasma Rifle] Clip

The [plasma rifle] clip is a relatively simple piece of technology. In is relatively straightforward in its construction; from both a mechanical and electrical terms viewpoint, it is easy rather simple to reproduce and use. However, the chemistry contained within is considerably more complicated. Each Alien plasma weapon design fires an its own specialized optimized type of ammunition, and their respective clips rely on separately balanced sets so the clip relies on a highly balanced set of chemical and physical reactions. The [plasma rifle] clip's contents seem to be optimized for a balance between speed and power.

Within the [plasma rifle] clip are two compartments that hold the reacting ingredients reactants. The first tank compartment contains holds a gel-like mixture containing highly fractured Xenium,. It also includes iron, and uranium, along with traces and trace amounts of several other elements, while the. The other tank compartment contains heavy water. It should be noted that both containers these contents are kept highly isolated to prevent malfunction and the risk to user safety is low minimize the risk to the user.

When the two ingredients are mixed, and a high-frequency pulsed EM stimulus electromagnetic pulse applied, the Xenium reacts violently in a manner that can be best described as an explosion. The immense amount of released energy released in the reaction is sufficient to cause initiates a fusion chain reaction; the fusion of the deuterium atoms found in the heavy water; a chain reaction that releases even more energy and superheats the mixture, continuing until the reactants are spent. The result, contained by magnetic fields if my idea in the plasma weapons systems CT is accepted, add that the magnetic fields are powered by the same reaction, is plasma – an a superheated, ionic, electrically conductive gas. The resulting burst, directed by the weapon, is similar to ball of energy, but deviates by actually being an extremely highly heated form of mass is not the beam of energy that many might imagine, but actually a form of mass heated to extraordinary levels.

Although the contents within the [plasma rifle] clip are optimized to provide an increase in power over smaller plasma weapon designs, the plasma-generation reaction takes a marginally longer time to complete, resulting in a slightly lower rate of fire. This particular clip is designed to administer moderate amounts of ingredients to the plasma rifle. The rifle clip, compared to the pistol clip, seems to be manufactured with the purpose of supplying an accurate weapon, rather than a weapon with low reaction time. As a result, the clip is marginally less efficient at supplying the rifle at high rates, but shows a higher efficiency at supplying an accurate amount of the mixture. The rate of discharge suffers as a result of this, but the plasma rifle’s accuracy is likely due to the clip.

Truncated a large portion of this paragraph because in the plasma rifle CT, the anterior EM prongs are the reason behind the accuracy increase, not the clip.
