What cowboys in the future will be riding:

Hmmm... I actually had time to start something!!  :o

Anyways, it's WIP. I still have to finish anti-aliasing and then, add steel wings to the thing so it can fly. C+C so far?

2.) The vehicle has to be practical.
Example: You canít have a tank that sprouts wings and flies.† It has to be something that could possibly work.
5.) You have a choice of styles you want to choose.
A.) Stone Age
B.) Futuristic
C.) World War II era
D.) Leonardo De Vinci


pfft what is this?

ill see if i can make something but if its not practical im not gonna care. how do you say we have to make something that is practical and then say we can create something that is futuristic. I think that anything then would be therefore made up seeing as we dont know what to expect from the future, so how can you say that it would be impractical or not.

I dont know really...i just think you didnt know what you were doing when writing up this challenge. Because for all you know, there really could be a tank that sprouts wings and flies in the future.

ps. Leonardo Da (not de) Vinci is a person, not a time era.

Is this making a laughingstock out of my flying futuristic P.E.G.A.S.U.S.?  :'(
Still, Alex is right. Physics is an ever-evolving science, and the "future" is only made up of assumptions which may or may not be true.

P.S. That was a list of styles, not time eras.

I knew that.  ;)
...I was just lamenting about the original quote, where it says "You canít have a tank that sprouts wings and flies".

A tank could sprout wings and fly, if you have the futuristic theme. In theory a tank could be able to fly, if it is what it was engineered for. Take a Boeing 747 for example, being able to fly weighing 870,000-lbs. As long as you got the aerodynamics right and big enough wings to generate a sufficient amount of lift, everything could fly.

Let met illustrate this a little.

Take a look at the third grey vehicle, the fighter jet. Imagine it without wings and with a big gun on it. Very possible it's an effective tank. Now then, if it just sprouts wings, it could fly, as long as the wings are big enough to get enough lift.

Hello everyone this vehicle is kind of futuristic flies in the air and underwater.. when under water the "wings" is moved closer to the body and all openings shut..etc. etc.
14 colors, +1 if i had added transparency. (but i dont have a program which can save transparent gifs even if i would love it if someone could tell me about one..cough,cough ;))
I know the design isnt exactly original but I'm so tired of this so i'll just post it anyway. If anyone has an idea of how to improve it, particulary the cocpitglass, please speak up. :)
C&c welcome..


EDIT: Thanks asian gamer. Now it's transparent.

FINISHED!


Land.


Sea.


And changing.



to be honest crazy asian gamer and brian the great....i dont understand you two at all.

I was scientifically explaining that a tank can sprout wings and fly. I'm afraid there isn't a simple way to put it.
