Ever wish there was an ingame place to go check your stats with various limited weapons, even weapons not currently on auction?

Well now there is: The Limited Weapon Museum, located in a house just north of Atlas Island South tp at coords 10500 15200.

[br]Click to enlarge[/br]

Here's a (dated) pic of the interior with the house owner and collection holder, Alex Fishface Walton:

So stop by, check out these great weapons, and plan your advance to uberness :)

If anyone has almost-broken limited guns not listed here, and would like to make them available to the museum, please send me a PM or look for me ingame.

EDIT: Using the trick to put things on the wall got me a temp lock, so unless someone has a ton of wall panels to donate, the guns will be located on the floor. Doesn't look quite so nice, but just as usefull for checking stats, or just curiosity. EDIT2: Got some wall panels for Xmas, could use more if there's a crafter out there. EDIT3: The Museum has moved to its new location at Atlas South, hosted by Alex Fishface Walton.

Cool idea, I might well use this some time.

I have a nearly-dead S60, will probably finish it tonight and then you can have if you want. I'll try to remember not to fire the last shot :)

Just a reminder:

Once (L) weapons are completely used up, they cannot be dropped, even in an apartment. Only weapons that have at least one click of life remaining can be used for the museum.

How to figure the breaking point? Three percent of the total tt is the point at which most (L) items break. So then you add about 2 times the decay of the item to the 3% figure, and you have the stopping point for display purposes.

Brilliant!

I will see if I got any close-to-empty weapons ready for your museum.

Can you still seethe stats correctly on a gun even if this is nolonger usable?

+reps all the way for a good job done!
Maybe a couple of big signs from MA on the building, to show the way...? ;)

Yes, you can still see stats on a broken weapon, but you cannot place it in the apartment. I have a small collection of broken weapons in storage, but obviously only I can check stats on them.

If I had a shopkeeper, it is possible that broken weapons could be placed their for others to view. Not really sure though.

While we're on the subject of broken and nearly broken (L) weapons: I noticed that the %age figure on weapons now refers to the amount of useable value rather than tt value left.
I.E. it is now dead at 0.0% not 3.0%, although the tt value at this point is still the same when it dies.

Yes, this is due to the following change in the recent VU:

"Condition Limit
The condition limit indicator now displays the usable condition range e.g. the top 10% condition for items with a 90% condition limit."

Awesome idea by the way Coop!

I've often thought of making a museum of all items in game, and this for sure is closest I've seen anyone get to the idea :silly2:

Hmm, how best to word it...

Ok, imagine a (L) weapon, full condition = 100 PED. At 3 PED it's broken.
Before the VU, at 100 PED it was 100%, at 50 PED it was 50% and at 3 PED it was described as 3.0% condition.
Since the VU, 100 PED is still 100%, 51.5 PED is 50% and 3 PED is described as 0.0% condition.
The %age now refers to the useable value, not the total value.

Hope I haven't confused you even more :ahh:

I put a first launcher into the museum, the Detpil 50, so any others would be aprecciated.

Nice idea :), i will save for you some (L) guns , now im soon to finnish
Isis LR 48 (L) ( i think a nice piece to collection :) )

Also +rep for idea >)

Quite nice addition, look forward to it.

Love to have that, too.

You and PW3CKA will have to race for it ;)

I have an H41 (L) Mina if you want :)

That one is in the museum already, but thanks.


I added Breer M4a, Isis LR41, Isis BL1000, and Detpil Rv 40.

If you have an additional weapon available, you can pm me here to set up a meet. Also, someone from Rising Potentials society is often at the 3rd Floor Auction in Twin Mall, for reaching me ingame.

I've started doing this, without really thinking about the museum concept, but cool idea, +rep. My problem is quite often I get trigger-happy and burn them down too far to be able to drop them in the apt. :laugh:

I'll try to remember to save my Svempa T15 for the museum just before it breaks. I usually run them into the ground, since they still have quite a few PED's on them when busted, but it's for a good cause. :)
