Title: Machine Guns

I am curious about US Machine Guns. The only one I can find smaller than 20mm is the Browning M2. Is there a rule on Shipbucket that weapons smaller than .50 caliber aren't drawn? Or has noone done weapons such as Miniguns, Mk. 19s, and M-60s?

It's difficult, we here at shipbucket are limited by the huge pixels computer designers still prefer to work with. Therefore everything below 40-30mm is drawn with one pixel-line only. It's better to apply to one of the moderaters, so that they can tell you what can, and can not be done regarding small-caliber weaponry.

It's not that, it's MS Paint, which has huge pixels primarily for cost and so that it can still be useful as a very low-end graphics design/artist's program for young children, people who don't have time to spend the how many hours it takes to truly master a vector graphics program and other quick jobs.
That said, there are M60s and Mk19s, they're just not on the parts sheet.

the rule is that if you can produce the stuff in our scale, with black outlines then nothing prevents you drawing one. Then again, a infantry size weapon is propaply a sinlge black line of some pixels length, so don't get your hopes too high <_<

Okay, thanks guys. The reason I asked was I was thinking of adding a Mk. 19 to the FFG-62 in "Own Designs", but when I tried it this morning, it actually looked like a stubby .50 cal.
Perhaps for something like that, simply note that a .50 cal mounting can be replaced with Miniguns or Mk. 19s?

That's more or less an adequate description of what it looks like in real life (I've even heard people ask if it's based off the M2's action) so yeah, it would look like a stubby M2 on Shipbucket.
