Yup, make it as smooth as possible. The only way I have to protect against collisions is guessing when to release the trigger. Or wait until that clacking sound starts haha. Now that I think about it, you could probably cut some guiding grooves into the gravity mag and make it so the channel in the platform lines up with the pushing bit so it goes through the channel and doesn't whack up against it. Just an idea.

Has anyone else encountered this problem? Does this happen only or more frequently with some brands of FL tube protectors?
If you have one of the moving platform pieces (don't know the correct word for it) from the 10round mag, do this

and use it as a weight that pushes the discs down. Helps keep them in check.

I'm going to try and get as close to actual cost as possible for my last HvZ heavy loadout. I've used different, more expensive loadouts in the past, but whatever.

NcStar MOLLE Tac-vest: $25 (at the time)
2 Boildown Bags: $15.96
Limey Tactical Stryfe Holder: $42
8 18round mags: $80
Limey Tactical Loose Dart bag: $19

Blaster junk
American Stampede: ~$160
Modified stryfe: $40
Triad: $7
Socks: $3

Overall: $391.60

I expected higher. This is just one of the loadouts I've run with. I've had higher, and I've had lower. This doesn't include any cameras + batteries I had on me, nor does it add in shipping.

Top shelf of one of these.

As for carrying, I use Boildown bags. A 12x5x5in belgian gas mask bag with an Alice-to-MOLLE adapter sewn onto it. Use it for HvZ to carry mags and as a dump pouch and during NIC wars for a TON of stefans.

I've heard of people using reactor springs to make extended vortex mags. Anyone have a good guide or pointers for doing this?

I can only type it out, but I'll try and make it as easy as possible.

10 round vortex clip
4-10ft fluorescent light tube protector bring a disc to test. It should be able to slide down the tube.
Reactor spring (it may or may not fit in the tube. It will vary from Reactor to Reactor).
Sand paper/sanding bit and dremel.

Step 1. Open up your vortex clip and take out the spring, disc pushing platform, and the bottom piece. Leave the piece on the side with the spring.
Step 2. On the bottom side of the clip, grind down the ridge until it's flat and grind down the inside ridges and area above it a little bit so there's a smooth transition. Test out how you did by putting the light protector in it and look down through the top. You don't want any sort of bulging.
Step 3. Take the disc platform piece and wrap 1-3 layers of etape around it until it still slides smoothly down the tube while keeping the gap between the platform and tube as closed as possible. (I forget if there's anything sticking off it. if there is, cut those off until it's nicely rounded).
Step 4. Cut 10-11in of light protector and grind/sand down the outside and inside that will slide into the clip a little bit. This will help with discs moving nicely into the clip and take away some of the bulging that could happen. With your clip pieces closed together (not screwed), glue a line of hi-temp glue around the tube on one side and slide it about .25-.5in into the clip While the glue is hot, straighten it while testing how the platform piece moves through the connection. There should be no stopping or slowing. If the glue dries and there is, use a heat gun to take the tube out and either: A. take more plastic off the clip's bottom section or B. sand down the tube a bit more.
5. Once you have it together and it's working smoothly, hotglue the connection on the outside of the clip. Make sure to glue it well.
6. Take your spring and push it into the tube. It should be loose and have 1-2 inches hanging out the bottom.
7. Use either the end piece that came with the tube as your cap, or etape the bottom cap from the clip after cutting off the wing pieces.
8. Use a stick or screwdriver to test the platform piece through the connection again. The spring should be snappy and smooth. if it is, you're done!

If I find another reactor, I'll make a video tutorial for it.

Just for reference, in the backup the chest labeled precious ores has 21 diamond blocks. On the server, it only has 45 diamonds total. Does this sound like the right save? I can reup it as soon as you confirm.

Is there a date stamp for that? If anything, you can reup that and I can check to see if everything is there as soon as I get my computer up and running from some maintenance I'm doing to it.

Dan, what happened with the server? It appears that the server has been brought back with an old save or something cause NoM and I have just lost a shit ton of work we did. Like... a whole whole lot of stuff that took many dozens of hours to make and do.

Excellent work as usual, Rekk.
This gives me an easier way of making my next Boom Nitron project, so thank you! Hope you don't mind me taking some of your ideas Wink

Daring, can we get permissions for using the lava bucket? I'd like to make a garbage disposal.

When I paint my blasters I use plastic primer, but it's still tacky, should I use clear coat.
I always recommend ending with clear coat.

Longshot was my first mod. 
The longshot was my first mod and it turned out really well. There are so many guides out there to help you, it's almost as if someone is there with you to help along the way.

not to mention the fact that they're functionally obsolete for HvZ usage.
Doesn't have to be for HvZ, modding is good no matter what it's for. Hell, I mod just because now.

I want to start with a easy gun to mod =/
What country are you in?

I'd start with a Nitefinder or Longshot. Lots of tutorials online that go over them, and they're pretty simple to mod.

I'd start by checking to see if your Caps Lock key is stuck some times.

Yeah, it's been making me sad.  This is my favorite nerf community.  The nerf reddit is full of meh.  People here know their shit a lot more.  I'm starting to like britnerf too.   
I feel like the Reddit is filled with too many FNGs, but thankfully we don't have to deal with the horde of dumb questions they ask like NH does.
I too <3 the HvZ forums. There's a reason I've posted here more than I have on NH and NRev combined.
