They all look absolutely fantastic. It's a shame that the geometry constraints in RA2 are so limited in terms of chassis design that external software is required for something more than a box or a "circle". Torque of the Devil and RoboPig are both brilliant.

thanks  :laughing
well, now that i notice, i think i rotated Torque's eyes too much, but it can be fixed easily.
Robopig wasn't hard to do, but a big problem was placing the eyes in a way that it looked similar to the original.

the previous version had more distant eyes, and honestly it looked bad. also it lacks ears because there's also a polygon limit for OBJtoRA2 chassis, which is 86 faces, and Robopig chassis was 80 faces, with ears it reached 94. so i need to do those in RA2, same for the tail.

anyway, if there's a result i'm proud of it's Pathetica.

For OBJ chassis, honestly, the only problem of over 86 faces cause is crashing the game when the chassis starts to spark in battle

yeah, i know. the way to avoid it would be making an armor so hard that it's impossible to reach critical damage.
but yeah, it's not the best idea.

I think that some aspects of the design like ears can be easily compiled through the skinning aspect of design rather than a polygonal face aspect. Even without these aspects, I'm sure that people would appreciate the work that went into the physical design aspects and overlook a few inconsistencies in the final product.

One thing that I would change, however, is that I think the pink is a bit too dark and would be better as a salmon type of color, but that's just my view of the color.

You should make an AI pack out of these. They're amazing!

you know what?
i wish i could do it, but i never programmed an AI in Robot Arena. and let me tell you. importing those bots in Sonny Resetti AI Pack to test them with AI bots that have strengths and weaknesses kind of gets annoying because it's a continous thing of copy-paste, copy-paste...
i would test them in base DSL 2 but the AI bots included are OP as ****.

is it hard to program an AI in RA2?

also.

It's relatively easy once you get the hang of it

fixed the drill of Torque of the devil.
the real one had 3 triangle blades placed like this. 

so it would have been more suitable than just those two beaters. i put 4 wedges to simulate that, should have been 3 but i noticed just now that those triangles are 3 not 4.
it's bigger than his real counterpart, but i prefer it more than the previous result.

also fixed the texture a bit



also, talking about AI, another person (joelcool51) offered help to add it.

so, i was planning to make Robopig as the next bot, but i've noticed that it still have something to tweak. also i'm undecided if i should make the eyes as separate components (cylinder extenders in RA2) or as texture. in my opinion the first sounds more suitable, but i have to test.
in the meantime i did a less known bot, or we can say in this case a "Reserve" bot.

well, my friends, i think i did my decision but...can you tell me which one looks better in your opinion?



also, 4 likes for my Torque replica?! including Scrap Daddy?!
 :claping thanks guys!  :claping
didn't thought you liked it that much.

Both look fine in their own respective way but I think that the second one is better suited.

almost done (need to texture tires)! and testing three designs.
1st eyes style, texture (based on reference image from RW wiki)


second eyes style, pieces


3rd style, texture (based on the profile image i have, taken from a drawing from an artist called c-studios)





armed with "Vicious Piggy Lick", a tongue which bursts out and also lifts. (this was hard to make right not because it wasn't working but because mixing powerful piston with powerful lifter made the robot fly if it tried to lift an enemy without passing the wedge underneath, so i had to nerf it)

...now, where's the real chassis?
Aside from that, I like it.
