shot simulator suggestion

Postby fr0sty » Tue Nov 22, 2011 4:26 pm

It would be great if you could pose the deer in various positions, like head down, walking etc. I am a gun hunter and normally shoot for the heart lung area. I want to start making scapula shots. For me, having the ability to pose the deer (and it's legs) in various natural positions will help be learn better where the scapula is when the deer is standing or walking.

It would be good if one could enter or display the range and elevation (of the bow) for the shot. A variation would be to enter the range and elevation then display the scene.

I just received the Shot Simulator (Deluxe) and am pleased with it overall. I found no instructions, so the feature I am suggesting may already be there -- I just haven't found it yet.

The supplementary files are especially good.

I agree with fr0sty's suggestion for additional poses, but for the opposite reason -- I am trying not to hit the scapula.

Not that bad of an idea actually.

Glorious information here. This fascinating post made me smile. Maybe if you happen to throw in a few pictures it would make the whole thing more interesting.

Can't see many uses for feeling the barrel of a gun, but bullet casings is a great idea. Would be neat walking into a building and finding bullet casings near a window. Would really add to the immersion. Maybe we could be able to pick them up and use them for something. Don't know how viable crafting new ammo from casings would be, but it's something.

No, I think it's been 4 years! That's like the time it takes to graduated from college. I've got 5yrs...I think we both need to "get a life". ;)
