Just out of curiosity, what is the difference between DSL and Stock version of the game?

You posted it in the wrong topic... anyways fixed.

DSL has far more components and more variety, and bots featuring these new components. Also it's a bit more balanced than stock.

DSL is also aiming for a realistic style... Stock bots may look like a mess and we use plenty of glitches, motors on bursts, motors overlapping batteries.

DSL bots don't do all of that intense glitching, sure you can glitch but only if the result looks OK.

Also stock is dominated by a few bot types and the other bot types are useless. So is DSL, but at least in DSL more bot types can be made competitive.

Short answer: Everything


Exploration is always the best way to check out different things, dont forget you can copy your RA2 game folder in case you want to undo anything you install ;)

Lies.

obvious Sage-baiting is obvious
Stock is just manlier than DSL. How can you claim to be a so-called "manly-man" when you're obviously an effeminate DSL builder?
How you make Alarm Clock Pizza is:
Step 1: You buy an alarm clock from the store, and then you have to break it and put it in the sauce.
Step 2: Fold the sauce in 5 slices and put it in the dough.
Step 3: Paint the eggs with a pitcher of a clock showing what time you want to wake up and eat pizza for breakfast.
Step 4: Put the eggs in the dough.
Step 5: Make it flat into a round shape and draw the time you want on it.
Step 6: Put some old steel to prevent other peple from stealing it.
Step 7: Make it flat and cut into 60 slices 1 for each minute in 1 our.
Step 8: Put in the oven set the timer to 30048813.2884 seconds and put the temperature on 'Volcano' setting.
Step 9: If you think it is take to long, then get yor alarm clock and set it to now so that it will ring and you can take it out.
Step 10: Take it out uv the uvin wen it is redy and go to bed. In the morning eat pizza and also eat yor hands bi mistake.
