I went for a walk last night and I came across a secret , old, cold war laboratory... ok. In it were some files about using monkeys as siege weapons. I won't go into detail, ofcourse, but I've decided that this is a good place to test the awesome power of the Trebuchet Super Monkeys.
Here is a picture and a short movie of my first steps into this vast and very obscure realm:

Movie (DivX, 225 KB) -> here (http://www.am-ende.net/3dmax/movies/treb/TSM_01.avi)
What you see in the picture as "hole for lead" is actually a hole for getting lead in. The molten lead is being poured into the head to give more 'padding' to the monkey's south end.
It is the counterweight.
The monkey has no face yet.
The Trebuchet Super Monkey will hurl a smaller, regular sized monkey (the large one is about 10 m. / 30 ft. tall). Since the cold war is over its main task will be picking random fights and putting put an end to crime world-wide!
So what we'll have is the monkey hurled through the air and crashing through a brick wall, knocking down a criminal holding up an old lady.
Ok, I'm working with max 6 and reactor. I was planning on using SimCloth3 but reactor has more controls for this type of simulation.
I have a few more surprises queued up, will post again tomorrow.
