Plasma vs. Pulse
« on: April 15, 2007, 03:39:36 am »
Just to correct an error which I see a lot in this forum:

Plasma=Green (yellow on wasp), 3 shots (1 on wasp), used on reapers, knights, wasps  :reaper: :wasp:

Pulse=Blue, 1 shot, used on commanders, commandants, assassin warlords  :commandant:

Not quite correct, the Reaper can shoot anything from 1 to 4(or 3) projectiles, and the Assassin Warlord shoots (1 to-) 3 pulse projectiles

Oh, and I've changed my Pulse projectile colour to red :P

Don't forget Pulse Defenders!

Red pulse > blue pulse.

No chance of rainbow plasma is there Judas?

I still have my original Machines disks and manual....

Well....

It's just an image, so if I want a rainbow plasma bullet, I can create it

(It doesn't change actively though, it's just an image that I shoot away :P)

So if plasma is simply the fourth state of matter attained by extremely high temperatures, than what is a pulse? Is that just supposed to be a laser?

Plasma is basically ionised gas which makes up 99% of the universe as far as I know. Gives the gas a whole lot of new properties.

The pulse cannons seem to use light, but not a constant beam, hence the name I suppose. However, I think the term 'pulse gun' refers not to the nature of the ammunition but the way the gun shoots pulses or bursts without actually shooting bullets. For example the plasma cannons could probably be called pulse weapons, and lasers are pulse weapons, but also there could be electromagnetic pulse guns, x-ray pulse guns, etc. xD I think in this example though we would assume it is laser light, but it could be almost anything :P

In real life I think tasers are classed as pulsed weapons xD emitting pulses of electricity.
