So I've really been hitting the drawing board more than my workbench recently because I'm really at a loss of what direction to go with this idea. Figured I'd keep sharking the ideas with you guys here not only as a way for me to sort them out as well as gauge opinions from you about them.
When we last left our heroes, we were thinking about this concept of building a laser tag rifle AROUND an existing blaster like the LTAR. This is still the concept I'm sticking with, but now the question is how to approach it and what platform to use for it. With the LTAR, the idea would obviously be to still work the blaster into the shell by not interfering with the internals and switches too much... but then the question comes to be about how integrated it'll actually be? I know I want to keep the sensor housing construction intact and the motherboard and batteries, but what portions would be rewired through the rest of the blaster.
So the concept seems like it'd work, but the trouble would be executing a design like that. The Centurion would have it's own optics in it that would transfer over to the LTX. The sensor dome would need to be visible enough to your opponent to make things fair to take hits as you utilized the Centurion, and it'd need to be sturdy enough to be a solid rifle, but easy enough to detach in the heat of battle. I'm not sure a design to meet all those requirements would be feasible. What do you think?
