"A mediocre weapon, for mediocre times."
This one is a reference to Mad Max: Fury Road, one of my favorite films of 2015, it seems fitting to end the year with this model.
It features old and grungy materials, and I decided to keep it both in the Post Apocalyptic and DIY realms, rather than going high tech. My initial ideas for a post apocalyptic weapon were more of a rudimentary railgun instead, but in the end I decided I could be a bit more crazy with this kind of weapon.
It's also meant to have a questionable design, more balanced towards looking menacing and sharp than being durable and well built, since it belongs in a world where everything is half broken and withered.
To make sure the skin really works in a PostApoc theme, I wanted it to be a good fit for Fallout 4 (made out of materials you would expect to find in the game).
Here's some of the references I used while coming up with the design of the Mad Can.
I'll probably release this for Fallout 4 too, when the official tools come out, meanwhile here's the obligatory Left 4 Dead 2 release.
- Baked beans can
- Mortar or similar material to fill the can
- Wooden stool leg
- Thin tire (from mountain bike or similar)
- Sharpened gear or radial saw blade
- Several bolts and nuts
- Iron rods, cloth, adhesive
- Pitchfork or pointy sharp metal
- Uses 2048x2048 textures.
- Modifies models & textures.
- Includes custom blood texture.
- Replaces the Crowbar.
