Wilson Chronicles is a total Source conversion of Half-Life Wilson Chronicles.
holy ****, that looks badass!
OMG! I RLLY LOVE DIS WEP! *i belive i can charge! and i belive i can fly! and i belive i can smash the ground!*
Damn man. That is probably the most epically over-sized weapon in existence. Time to kill some aliens with the ricochet function!
Anyways, it looks good. The model looks very much like a prototype, just like the original Tau Cannon, and the Tesla Coils on the front and back are well placed and add some good detail. I can't wait to see what it looks like with a good texture.
PS: Still working hard on the Training Level.
Such amazing craftsmanship! Excellent detail and work!
wow nice !! ;D
Who could not love this weapon ? A very well done BFG ! Beautiful model Laurent.
Looks like the hi-poly version. Did this baby get a low-poly with a bake as of yet?
this is going to kill my PC...less detail/polys please!!!!
wow, lovely details
I never really got why they called it a tau or Gauss gun :/ To me those coils look like electromagnets not Tesla coils (yes the 2 are different)
This is how I assume this thing could work :/
Since its powered by Uranium U235 I assume this sucker is basically a small man portable nuclear reactor. The reactor powers the electro magnetic coils like a in a linear accelerator (Gauss/rail gun but technically isn't one as it has no barrel made of rows of EM coils/rails.)
Both magnets would keep the radioactive particles with in the gun & to fire the front magnet simply turns of for a second or becomes less powerful than the one in the back. That would result in the particles discharged in that direction.
The radiation would be safely (I assume it is o.o) contained in the gun due to intense EM waves controlling them & a fairly dense lead lining in the gun.
The projectiles would thus most likely be a concentrated beam of radioactive particles focused into a beam by the electro magnets.
I cant really explain how the ricochet effect would work tho :/ Doesn't seem physically possible to my understanding. Perhaps the beam contains a Uranium bullet at the front? Or maybe the beam is made of multiple Uranium pellets enveloped in radioactive particles?
Just my 2 cent opinions but I hope you enjoyed my thoughts on this particular weapon :)
Actually the more I think about it the more it makes sense how the beam could ricochet :] Since the 3 containers of Uranium always spin at high velocity it would imply that the containers are filler with BB sized pellets of Uranium. By spinning it would collect the BBs in into a specific spot in the container & channel them into the EM chamber.
This would also explain how the gun can also "charge" as the more you charge the gun the more Uranium pellets are in the EM chamber causing a bigger nuclear reaction & then using the strong electro magnets (powered by the reaction) to expel the nuclear waste (depleted Uranium & Gama radiation) as a very lethal projectile/beam >:3
On another note were is the trigger on the model? Wouldn't there need to be some kind of a trigger or button to fire the gun? I can see the handle on the side but from the angle of the render I cant tell if there is a trigger :/
I can only assume that when Wilson's holding this, all he needs to do is look at you and you're dead.
true but given the nature of how the weapon might work its just as liable to accidentally kill the user while in use :/ After all the dammed thing is a mini nuclear reactor 0.0
cant argue with science karma tolls xD you can try all you want but you will inevitably fail in the end.
Also FYI the reason I said its liable to kill the user is if its misused or overloaded. In the original half life over charging the Gauss gun will make it emergency vent its radiation and Uranium particles hurting the player.
Hell when you 1st get the gun its only after another scientist and ******* guard overload it and get themselves killed.
For some reason, this makes me want to play Minecraft.

IMA FIRIN MAH TAU CANNON!!!
Hey, what's this thing? Some kinda weapon?
