Phew. what a few days it’s been. Got a few things done.
1. Menu system
2. new STI model
3. 180 DQ
4. Physics based swingers
5. Clamshell prop
6. Other various improvements to code / structure
I should be able to polish it up a bit more and then I’ll start inviting folks who are interested to give this a test.
Lots of updates and tweaking over the past few days. Got to implement a few things:
1. Menu system to calculate scores and reset the stage.
2. Hitfactor scoring based on your time / score.
3. Included the reddot model provided by Scott of Springer Precision
4. Implemented shader for reddot parallax effect
5. USPSA Targets & noshoots
Being a geek and VR/AR enthusiast, during the winter downtime for shooting, I decided to start a project to build a IPSC simulator using Unity and the HTC Vive. It was a fun experience, here’s where I got to in just four days. Looks like I’m getting some good feedback from the community, so I’ll just keep on going and see where this leads me.
My first USPSA match of 2017 after a looooong break of no shooting and no dry-firing. Was super cold, super wet and one of those matches that kept everyone asking why they’re out there feeling miserable. That said, there were some really fun stages including one that had all 1/2 sized targets, now that it is legal to use in Level One matches. Those are hard to shoot at! Thanks again to the PB crew for keeping the range open throughout winter.
Paul Bunyan Rifle Club ran their annual Toys-4-Tots charity match again this Sunday. It is an outlaw USPSA-styled match that raised $1,300 in cash for kids. Always great to be out shooting for a good cause.
The November Charity Match run by the DownZero crew is a yearly match to promote the awareness of Prostate Cancer. They combine the USPSA stage design principles but with IDPA scoring. It’s a fun match for a good cause. If you’re male above the age of 40, go get a yearly exam and start tracking your PSA levels. Early detection is the key to survival.
As for my match performance, well, watch the video. Some mistakes here and there but the biggest match breaker for me was my death jam on Stage 5. Sucks when a stuck case comes visiting. That’s my 3rd stuck case in my years of shooting.
Finally back shooting after a long break.
[excuses] I found out during the match that I don’t do well in cold rainy weather, my hands get all cold and beaten up. Got my thumb cut on something, left middle finger pinched during a reload, slide bite (for the first time) and thumb hit the racker.
