Fixing that sticky pedal may eventually lead to a slight improvement in fuel savings, plus it'll be also safer.

I got to do a little TIG welding in a welding class, WOW is it hard. I would end up melting way more metal than I would add. MIG welding on the other hand: EASY MODE!

Artillery, cool! What caliber(s)? One piece or two piece ammunition? If one piece, what did you guys do with the spent casings? I've got an inert ammo collection going, my goal is to touch the ceiling, which is 50 inches up from my dresser. Unfortunately when ammo gets that big and heavy, it turns into two piece ammo, so i'm having a really hard time finding shells that big. The biggest one i've got is the 40mm bofors at 21 inches tall.

Yesterday when I got home I was 1 needles width below half a tank and had 270.2 miles on the trip meter, eager to see what the base line is.
Yep, get to drive on GA highways all the time, absolutely agree with the above statements. I honestly feel that when the speed limit is 70, people drive slower/more calmly. When its 55 they go crazy.

I was a 13D so I did FDC (Fire Direction Control) Basically I did the computational side of the firing solution to tell the Howitzers (and launchers) how to hit their target. I was heavy artillery so 155mm howitzers and rocket artillery (MLRS & HIMARS) There are no spent casings with 155mm, you open the breach of the howitzer and load the round which is esentially a big ass 90lb exploding bullet with whatever fuse on it that's appropriate for the fire mission, that can be timed or point detonation (hits something and goes boom) Timed allows for air burst or delayed after impact.

The artillery "shells" look like this. Just grabbed the picture from a google search btw, not mine. But that's what they look like, those eyelits come out and the fuse gets set and screwed on before they're fired. In each case comes the powder charges, depending on what's needed to range the target given the firing solution (can fire short distance high or low angle for example) depends on how many bags of powder are thrown in behind the round. Charge 8 (max) makes a nice huge boom. The blast from the muzzle is actually lethal if you're standing in blast area E (echo) which is the area along side the "gun" think of a range fan coming from the what is essentially a giant muzzle brake, if you're standing there when it fires, you're seriously injured or killed depending on location and charge being fired. Can also be serious injured or killed by the "gun" recoiling if you're in the way.


Honestly rocket artillery is superior, BUT it has a pretty far minimal distance so if the target is inside that range you either have to have the launcher relocate or use howitzers inside that distance.

Added to ecomodder map. Also just logged my baseline for this car, 38.78MPG! Not a bad start, now to see if I can get better.
