Botober 2020
« on: September 25, 2020, 04:47:48 PM »

It's time to prepare for the third annual Botober event! As always, the challenge is simple: build a robot every day (or as many days as possible) for the whole of October, using the official Inktober prompts at the bottom of this post, and post them here for others to look at!

=== HOW IT WORKS ===

  • Every day during October, you must create a robot based on that day's prompt, and post a splash image or screenshot in this thread.
  • There are no prizes for completing all 31 days. The only prizes are personal satisfaction, and having a fleet of potential new tournament entries. This is a fun challenge, so please don't push yourself to the point of burnout in trying to complete it.
  • You are free to use any game and any meta you like (RA2, RR2, Roblox, GMod, etc.), and you are free to use different games/metas for different days.
  • It's fine to build a bot early, as long as you wait until the day of its prompt to post it. Similarly, it's fine to build a bot late if you need to catch up.
  • I will be taking part myself, but will be going on holiday in early October and will likely miss those days.

=== THE GOALS OF BOTOBER ===

  • Test your creativity and building skills. Try out different weapon systems, weight classes, and even new games or metas. Don't be afraid to go outside your comfort zone.
  • Build up your roster. If you complete all 31 days, you'll have 31 robots ready to be polished up and sent into tournaments.
  • Botober is a personal challenge - you're competing against the prompts and your own creative limits, not each other. Don't be discouraged if you feel other people's builds are better than your own - and remember, you can always revisit and refine your Botober creations after the challenge is over.

Day 1: Fish
Gyre, a 4WD Rear hing based on a shark and Lego Aqua Raiders.
 
Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you. It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life… He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself.

DSL-S exists.
Also this is supposed to represent a shark. I think you should be able to tell.
I don't know how to get it to not look like that when I post it. Sorry.
Tournaments that I didn't suck in:
3rd in A Tournament 2 (GTS)
2nd/3rd in Metallic Action 2/3 (An Original VS)
Won Annihilation Nation 2 (Exosphere)

[announcer voice] "ROCKET!"

 


It's uncontrollably fast, and there's probably some clipping issues considering how small and tightly-packed it is, but I'm pleased I managed to get something done.

I'll post my pre-built Day 3 bot in the morning and then I'll be going on holiday, so I may not get any more bots done until Day 11. We'll see.
