  1. Yowza, sorry this is taking so long, work has been kicking my tail in recently and I’ve only just gotten to get back to playing Warframe to recharge my resolve. Did check out a bit of the update recently, and, fascinatingly, I’ve run into two “ convergences” to add to my list of “Extremes Designer and my Brain Simpatico” thoughts. 1. My Dual Harpitrixes, an ancient set of pistols of mine, they bear a marked mechanical similarity to Granum’s newest design, the Tenet Diplos. 2. The Sisters themselves bring back memories of an old weapon of mine’s backstory use by an all female “poster children” Corpus military force, the Falcon Moagun. Heh, feel like I was stealing ideas from the future, years in the past.
  2. AH! I get ya, almost as a sort of declaration of superiority. “ Look! Even with all these bells and whistles crammed into every crevice, it STILL runs! Why? Because we are the Orokin!” Thats certainly a thought! Instead of coming up with entirely unique alternate fires for every weapon that didn’t already have one retroactively, perhaps there could be a set of “generic altfire” modifiers that GIVE them ones, kinda like Mass Effect Andromeda’s augmentation system, but, even more flexible. None of them would be NEARLY as strong as the ones with “native” alternate fires of course, but, if you really like an older weapon, but, need a little unorthodox edge to keep it on the field, slap one of these puppies on! AH, pardon me! Shivved by Occam’s Razor I’ve been! Intricate mountains out of stock less molehills. Ah, understandable! Alotta my own work finds it’s home in interstitial areas like that, holes that can or need to be filled. Same for me and my Warhammer work, my poor shuttered monster cops tales, and BioWare bingeing. Best kind of games for me are the ones that actually continue between sequels with actual consequences, much like some of the older events in Warframe, even if only in outward visuals. Heh, a double gun revolver perhaps? A futureworld-duckfoot? And how I WISH I could keep the road straight in my designs. With such a broad scale to work with designwise, it’s a bit difficult to figure out which suits to work with. The Rhino suit’s retroactive weapon specialization is going well, but, Once it’s complete, I can’t tell if I should go based on suit popularity or “oldness of breed” (Plus, an unfinished enemy weapon distracted me). Thoughts on the matter?
  3. Well sir, my Gandiva design editing mumblings put aside, I think I’ll give your Fost an eyeballing and have my opinion put up. Happy to see so many folks love to commentate on your work so much, shows you very much have a place here! Pah , enough of my babbling! Primary fire: Buckshot Secondary Fire Artist Notes First off, sorry for not coloring this one. Unfortunately, my art computer is BORKED (that’s bad) so I can’t be posting stuff with the same quality I otherwise might have. I’m quite adept at coming up with weapons dedicated to crowd control, guns that separately roll crit and status on impact and explosion, but as is… I don’t like doing the same thing too often. Plus, I don’t have as much energy for this as I used to. I’m not quitting, I still enjoy this game, I just… have less energy. I’m not burned out, I’m just not burning at both ends. I wonder what I could do to shake things up for myself. Probably post all that umbral ayatan lore I’ve sat on and promised people who read my thread on the warframe forums. That got… too depressive. Anyway. I wanted to create something that didn’t have a gimmick focused on precision (though admittedly… I might try that later) or a blast radius. So I figured “hey, why not make this?” Last time I was in a mood like this last year, I just made the Fedorova assault rifle, so right now I’m making a semiautomatic shotgun. The idea is that it’s just a semiautomatic combat shotgun that serves as a mid-road between stuff like the Corinth and Strun Wraith (and stuff I’ve made, like the Tenebrae and Neophytou) and autoshotguns. A niche that genuinely feels untapped here. In Warframe, you normally get something super spammy, or something that’s extremely slow. Or in the case of Strun Wraith, a shotgun that is somehow both at once. (Amazing) So this thing is meant to be somewhat in-between. I do worry that I made this thing too powerful relative to the Strun, but I figure the lower overall crit, better reload speed, and better fire rate give it a fairly well-defined niche. The slugs… are just because normally I add some kind of explosive altfire to shotguns, this time I’m adding a more precise altfire. Do something different, y'know. (Lost this data multiple times, so forgive me if I’m seemingly “short” in some of these, a bit frustrated.) AH, a “multiload” shotgun, for when you need multiple types of ammo loaded in to suit multiple needs! I almost feel like this could be a modifier for our series of pumps that already exist, selecting shell types through some manner of “press reload then 1, 2, 3, etc” system. Regarding making things harder for the opposition, I imagine gene-locking weaponry might work, but, I’m not sure if they could achieve it on the broad scale that the Grineer function at, maybe for their one-off breeds. Ah, adaptation, just the way the Orokin never wanted it. Never quite the same as what the original makers had in mind, but, inevitably Grineer-“worthy” in the end. Statistical Breakdown: Fire Rate= Greater then either of it’s kin to be sure, but, still surpassed by the “one-pump-champ” exergis and the “lead-filled corridor maker” drakgoon. Magazine= A healthy size to be sure, matched by only one other shotgun, the glass-glazed astilla. Reload Speed= On the heftier end of things, but, on the reasonable heftier end of things, as opposed to some of the more painful and grotesque wait times, such as the agony of the Arca Plasmor. Primary Evaluation- Damage= Just a few points shy of the kuva drakgoon, and well within the limits of shotgun damagewisedom! Pellet Count= . . . well shet, I can’t actually evaluate this particular aspect, or, at least, not in a timely manner! Blasted comparison system no longer exists on the wiki and my notes are empty in the pellet section. Curses! Status Chance= Paralleling the Strun Wraith in this category and, in the grand scheme of the gunaverse, sits in the land of averages. Critical Chance= Sits upon the lower enda average she does, but, in the average zone all the same! Fascinatingly, this is the only design I’ve seen that perfectly balanced the Critical/Status dichotomy, with every other shotgun that currently exists either being minutely or heavily toward one or the other. Interdasting funducational fact. Critical Multiplier= Completely and utterly average in totality. Secondary Evaluation- Damage= She sits in a zone that, in the current arsenal, does not exist! This empty zone is borderlined tween the lavos suit’s abnormal glaive-throwing Cedo and the rare Kuva-Khom damagewise. Status Chance= A brutal horror indeed! Only the convectrix is able to get a leg up upon this purveyor of bludgeoning blows. Critical Chance= Heh, parallels the Convectrix in more then one way here, both in numeric skew and percentages. Critical Damage= Only .1 above the average. Bottom Section Inputs: Heh, way I’ve seen it sir, even a bare sketch is more then capable of drawing a crowd! Completely understandable sir! It’s why I have multiple personal projects I do! When the wick begins to gutter and smoke, I move to another, where the flames seem to erupt anew at the expense of the other. Go right ahead! If I can be waylaid to write a three chapter story of the Sentients journey and evolution before somehow writing course and heading back to weapons, I think you can do the same! Depressing? Nonsense! I’d say this is far more of “being real”. Keeps the air clear, helps folks recall your more then just a production factory. At long last, I may complete my review! Apologies for the delay, but, rest assured, my heart and soul into each little dashpoint.
  4. OH, shoot! Finally get to come back to look through my associates work before work today and before going on a design crusade this weekend, and, I’ve noticed something. Am I suppose to apply a “community” label to the Pit somehow? Or, is that something Digital is putting on active thread strands? Production might be very slow, but, rest assured, I have not concluded my Warframe journey! Life is just. . . lifeing really really hard right now .
  5. (Apologies for the long delay folks, friend had his father up and die on him and Mass Effect caught me up in it’s warm embrace again, both are making things a weeeee bit. . . difficult now. Rest assured, I have blueprints coming up as we speak (and a review for you Mr. Wolf) for Banshee and Rhino suit loadouts , with more to come! Times are just, well, tough.)
  6. Heh, I understand completely sir, the very reason why I have such gaps in my production! I’m certain you can still pop off unpainted pieces though suh, what kinda animal would hold you at gunpoint to produce something like the Gandiva art you were working on for me and painting it up in all the right colors, I know not.
  7. PHEW! Pardon me ladies and germs! The weather AND my job are conspiring to lay me out flat more often then I’d like! Righty ho suh! That one dates back to my time spent mulling over “Impossible effects in a possible universe”, whole idea being the further into the Void you go “away” from “leaky high traffic” areas within it, the more likely you’ll trip over things that take standard physics and natural laws, spit upon them, and then throw them in a car compacted. Inevitable something could and would be weaponizef. Righty ho then! Figured I could continue what Digital began long ago with weapons like the Fulmin for Wisp and the Acceletra for Gauss. Back in the day, they even actually HAD “The Preferred Loadout for ____” sets in the marketplace. Only seems fair to make those much more tangible with bonuses that fit their abilities and themes. Right ho folks, looks like I got me work order pencilled in then! See you folks on the other side of writing!
  8. Alright ladies and germs! As promised, heres the current "menu" of projects I have in the ol pile that I might dig deeper into the deepest layers of the ol pit. Which ones strike your fancy? If its legitimately difficult for you folks to write a paragraph or two as to the why, please, feel free to just say the letter of the one you desire and that will be all I need to finish a vote tally! Give it about a week for it to soak into the viewer pool. _____ A) The Targeter and the Executer handgun pairing. B) The Blackmatter manipulation engine. C)The Scutimite arm Symbiote. D) The Hammer Shotrifle combogun. E) The Jugulus Throwing Glaive. F) The Toggle Trigger Solar Gun. G) Asymmetric Gamma Radiator Twin Pistols/Carbine. H) The Retroactive Warframe Weapon Specialization Initiative. _____ I can provide additional detail on any of the chosen ideas, if they appear to vague descriptionwise or they simply catch your eye. Have fun folks! I know I always do when I get to let folks actively interact with the Pit's future!
  9. Ah, time for another report folks, figure it’s not a “bump” if enough time passes with silence being the only thing echoing through. My job means that production and updates are fewer and farther between alas, besides the mental stimulation the job has certainly been providing me with and I MOST CERTAINLY needed! First up, theres a new upcoming piece of art on it’s way from the generous art gods atop talent mountain folks! Mr. Fluffy Wolf has once again decided to grace us with his abilities by bringing one of my popular pieces to digital ink and pixelated life! I can’t wait to unveil it to you soon! Secondly, trapped upon indecision isle as I am, there’s gonna be a vote on which one of my designs will be next up for completeition and placement in yet another Pit layer folks! Keep your eyes peeled for a weekend announcement, when I shall unfurl the ancient tapestry that is my list of unborn designs, so that YOU folks may have a say in the ordering of the Pit’s newborn children! Thats all for now folks! So happy that I still have something left of me, even with a job demanding my attention. I hope and plead and pray it sticks with me even as the future grinds onward.
  10. Shes a beauty, I gotta say, the overall design very much fits the bill snugly and tightly, not very (uninsultingly) surprising coming off of your desk! Only thing that pops up is the leaf-sight that bugs me a bit. I'm trying to think of a better way to describe it to you, the way it works inside my mental testing grounds. The way you have built it does indeed fit, but, its the mechanism thats getting muddled. There needs to be a clear space behind the leaf-sight, and the leaf sight needs to be able to snap down onto the barrel to let the bolt pass. See the leaf sight on the M203? See how it folds in like that snugly inside that area? My aim was to use the leafy-leaf sight as the thing to hold back the string for the big bow. Pull the trigger, and it flips down onto the bottom to lie flat, letting the bullet fly free to plunge into the target. (Diagrams just here to show you the string part I'm pointing at thats behind a crossbow bolt in this case.) I'm sorry if I am being demanding about this, but, well, its SO legitimately good as it is. If theres a way to change just THAT part and keep the rest nice and frozen, we'd be even better! If not, I can do this really special thing called "Stop, they've already gone the extra mile, why a few miles more?", no harmed feelings or ill will involved at all!
  11. Smooth as butter to read now suh! Heh, I guess you get black from copy-pasting from Deviantart documents and white from copy-pasting Word documents
  12. And so it goes! Much thanks sir! My apologies for pilfering your skill in the arts away from your personal designs! As always, and seemingly without error, you continue to show your mastery of the craft, significantly improving over the earliest times I first saw you slowly begin to post and gradually develop over time. As a side note though, I've gotta ask. . . what happened to the text involving your Entrati pistol up above? It displays as a white textbox that I need to highlight in order to read, in a similar style to one of my old Latcher launcher entries where the text was all blacked out and required highlighting in order to read. Could you have suffered a similar glitch? If so, if you copy and plain-text it back in, you might be able to solve it like I did.
  13. THE SHADOW APPROACHES YOUR WORK! Jokeing aside, I did INDEED notice the familial resemblance to Borderland’s “gun faces”. Hm. . . instead of the fleshy peg-teet, perhaps you can go for the metal-infused jaws of the mollusk for the style? A proper metallic gun barrel, but, a weeee bit more exotic in styling? https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn24329-zoologger-mollusc-grows-hardest-teeth-in-the-world/amp/ Alternatively, maybe a bony beak with a hole in the front or a pseudo-barnacle formation for that “sturdy and gory” style. https://marine.ucsc.edu/images/target_tetraclita01.jpg

In addition, rather then spew everything in a single go and prevent a wall of text the likes of which have only been seen in the darkest depths of the Internet, I'll post em one at a time to try to see if A) there's any interest in my thoughts, and/or B) prevent eyestrain. Weapon Designation: Gunblade Name Designation: Binos Phew, finally, three months with that idea floating around and nowhere to put it, make of it what you will. Addendum Circa 8/14/2016: To facilitate the actual ability to read my works, I will now put them down in a listing here on this first page while attempting to chop the verbose portions as much as possible, the original posts will remain to allow folks to read the soul shattering Hyper-descriptions if they garner a greater interest. This may fail horrifically. TABLE OF CONTENTS👇🏻 THE GREAT FACTION-WITHIN-THE-FACTIONS CONCEPTULIZATION: (Posts 22,23,24)= (Lobbyist Cardinals, Grineer Generations, and Technocyte Strains) Essentially, in order to spice things up a bit, I'd like to introduce a bit of variability to existing units by introducing various political parties, "generations", and strains to the existing factions that exist in "harmony" (insert uncontrollable guffaws here) with the main liners while pushing their own agendas through various alerts. THE GREAT FACTION-WITHIN- THE-FACTIONS CONCEPTUALIZATION PART DEUX: GODS AND HORRORS (Posts 102,110,117(UNFINISHED!) and Post 119)= (Sentient Qualia and Sentry Lobes) WARFRAMES: PRIMARY WEAPONS: Sniper Ammo: Rifle: Shotgun: Secondary Weapons: Melee Weapons: ENEMIES: LOCATIONS: MODIFICATIONS: RESKINS (Pseudo-Tenno-Generated): Melee= SYNDICATES: CONCLAVE SUPPLEMENTS: EXPANSION PACK(S): And here we are for now. Hope this helps. Time to start numbering the posts. Addendum of the Addendum Circa 9/6/2016 To assist my mostly silent viewership in further viewing, I'll be placing the top concepts which folks currently seem to enjoy most right here for quality purposes (after all, if folks have no time to read EVERY SINGLE LAST entry of my pages, why not enjoy the highlights reel instead?)
