PostSubject: Cannon Science!   Fri Dec 10, 2010 3:39 am

Ok's so I have found out so far only a few things really, but more to come:
Water's= how many flow from the source, Doesnt count the source!!

East
1 waters travels 0? maybe a half space from the end of the cannon and it blows itself up. facing east "least powerful direction"
2 waters travels 15 spaces from the end of the cannon. facing east. (5 dynamite)
3 waters travels 30 spaces from the end of the cannon. facing east. (7 dynamite)

West
1 waters travels 6 spaces from the end of the cannon. facing west. (3 dynamite)
2 waters travels from 30 to 50 spaces from the end of the cannon. facing west. (5 dynamite)***

*** for some reason this travels different distances based on when you trip the last dynamite or perhaps if you leave the switch on or immediately turn it of once tripped.

to explain better the projectile travels _ spaces. Im doing east right now and building the cannons with the extra stuff above them or watever. I built mine out of obsidian but Im thinking now you dont have to because of the water. o well Smile hopes u like my science so far!
Me finks I sees a pattern!!! also I think this is pretty valuable info for attacks Very Happy

email me if you want my pretty cool map with a dungeon just north of the 2 towers used to base the height of the longest possible cannon (7 waters or watever Smile)

This is somewhat useful! These radia of distances (plural form of 'radius', right?) could be used to calculate the exact amount of TNT one needs to blow something X cubes away up.

Keep going!

I was sorta thinkin it could be used to see how someone could attack the enemy base like o lets attack that base. theyre 100 squares away so lets use an east facing cannon with 5 blocks. unfortunately I can hardly judge anything past 30 meters because it disappears out of sight.

I always hated redstone and now Im an aficionado of cannons. who woulda guessed?
I've even found out and invented my own way of improving the cannon so that it boosts it like its always facing east!!!. I even made a Southern facing boosted cannon! so exciting!

Try making a diagonally shooting cannon, figuring out a way to shoot targets very far away.

Also, a diagonal cannon would have more power, as TNT would be added to both sides. OR, compacter cannons! Hmmm...

lol I already made an awesome diagonal shooter yesterday. but its hard to make 45% shooters mine I invented shoots like 35%
also I call my upgrade to the other guys canon the "supercharger"
and now I just checked up on my other diagonal shooter it is awesome. facing east it can fire 6 blocks of dynamite in a V formation around 30?ish blocks its crazy awesome! but other directions need more than that. I call it the ONA cannon. Mk 1 of course.
