All in all though it's gorgeous. Not often these days that someone crops up with such a well defined and unique build style  :thumbup

I'm just glad to be free from the shackles of the in-game chassis creator! For example, I'm doing Scary Monsters right now (and I might even do an ant/middleweight version called Super Creeps) and I want to utilise an arrow shaped chassis. If I wanted to use the ingame engine I'd only be able to do a simple triangle - SketchUp allows me to have exactly what I want (as long as it's under 85/89 faces) and I'm that much better off for it.

All I'd be able to do with ingame -



What I actually want (and have) -

Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)

Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) is an arrow-shaped .bot armed with a  front-hinged arm flipper. While not exactly stunning, the front prongs are invaluable at getting under opponents, allowing me to send them back to the age of the dinosaurs!

[Mummified Corpse Eyes not included with this .bot and must be found seperately]

 
 

This one was a pretty challenging one to skin as everything seemed to be on a skew of about 45-50 degrees, so getting everything properly framed around this oddness was a bit difficult (but not impossible)

I've just finished Survivor and Speed King, and I'll make an update post when I've finished Bohemian Rhapsody, Oh! Lonesome Me and Brain Storm.

Thank you very much, it's the aesthetic that I was aiming for, so I'm glad I was able to do it some justice!

I'm not as pleased with B.I.G as I am with Aqua Necklace (I'm really glad I added the lines under the text at the last minute), but it's still neat.

Speed King / Survivor / Bohemian Rhapsody (and Scary Monsters, again)

Speed King and Survivor were absolute doddles to design, but I must've done about six models for Bohemian Rhapsody before choosing to just reuse the chassis of "Hahaha". I try not to reuse already existing .bot files as bases for others because it lends itself to laziness and half-arsedness and I'm not about that lifestyle. Seeing as how Speed King is one of my favorite Stands, I initially decided to create a little head crest to go somewhere on the chassis. After changing the look of the design I chose to not include the crest as I felt that it cluttered the design.

I also made a mockup of Scary Monsters to try the style of background I wanted, and I think it looks alright. The next couple of designs should be Soft Machine, Oh! Lonesome Me, Talking Head and Brain Storm!

While the design of the bots may be sometimes underwhelming and poor (being honest here), I can't deny that the skins, creativity and Splashes are excellent
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.

It's been just over a month since I last posted here, so I thought I'd try a different build for once. I'll be continuing my JJBA-themed .bots in a few days and I'll try to make them not "underwhelming"

Bee Boy 2 / Ravenous Rat 2 / Sarcophage 2

Bee Boy 2

 


Although Bee Boy 2's final form has obviously taken inspiration from robots like 13 Black and Chrome Fly, the original version was just one-half of the chassis. When sorting out the internals of Bee Boy 2, I decided to try to implement an omni-directional driving mechanism like Shatter! If it didn't work, I'd just delete the other wheels and drive it like a normal .bot. (It worked. Very nicely. Very nicely indeed.) As a result it's a little slower than some other .bots, but it makes up for that lack in speed with 2 really hard-hitting spinners.

Ravenous Rat 2

 


The original version of Ravenous Rat 2 was just a reskin of the original, but what's the point in giving something a "2" and a new paint job if you're not going to change the interiors/weapon? The original Ravenous Rat's overhead sledgehammer arm has been replaced with a double-headed polespike hammer. The design inspiration for Ravenous Rat 2 came from checking reference images to horse and bull skulls.

Sarcophage 2

 


Sarcophage 2 is, like Ravenous Rat 2, a complete redesign on the original design, with a new chassis shape, weapon and locomotion. The two little divits on the side of the .bot are supposed to keep it from being stuck on its side.


Both Sarcophage 2 and Ravenous Rat 2 are textured in the same way and I didn't notice that until I went to post this. The differential factor between both is that Sarcophage is a bit more bronze.

These bots look really nice, especially on the skins. Are you using Ironforge for this btw or do you just have the components in your game?

Thanks for the comment, I used to export textures at 1024x1024 but 2048x2048 gives them much more clarity. I would have had 3 more .bots to showcase but I mucked up the process in Blender and they rendered wrong.

The base game I'm using is the Resetti's Wars AI Pack so I think it's just things taken from that. If I'm going to upload any .bots to Bot Exchange I'll basically rebuild the .bot in a clean version of DSL 2.2 without using certain items (the motors for Bee Boy 2 are modded flatmotors and the battery is also modded).

Attempted building the chassis for an Agent Orange upgrade. I think it's pretty good, considering that it's got 80 meshfaces.

This looks pretty solid atm, just need a skin and the claws at the front. Only difference I can see atm is that the rectangle in the center could be a tad higher.
