Danangoo's DSL Showcase
« on: November 07, 2019, 07:06:50 AM »
I've been meaning to set up a DSL Showcase for a while now, so I dusted off some .bot's that I've made in the past and got them (at least somewhat) presentable.

One thing of note that I need to add is that a good 90% of these .bots were made in the Resetti's Replica Pack, so they use some custom components that wouldn't be available in a standard DSL Pack. If anyone likes what I've put up, I can add them to the Box Exchange by either editing them to not feature any potential conflicting items or add them with a disclaimer that they were made with custom components.

Black Lodge / Bee Boy / Retro Rat
 


Eviscerator / birds / Eureka!
 


Jenny Death When? / Get Got / Golden Experience
 


Neo Chopper / Neo Chopper Alt. Config / Leapfrogger
 


SLAM / SLAM 2 / SLAM 3
 


I have a few more splash pages but I'll leave it at this for the moment being. If there's any further interest I'll upload the others.

these are pretty good, but if you want to enter these into tournaments, id recommend getting the new DSL Complete Edition

Thank you! They were all great fun to make (except Bee Boy, who kept crashing the game while being made for a reason I couldn't figure out)

Yeah, I probably will get the Complete Edition. The interior redesign for a good 70% of them wouldn't be too difficult. Most of them can stand to lose a fair bit of weight.

nice skins.
also birds and all the slams look pretty epic ngl

Every SLAM has pretty much followed the same design idea except the prototype, which had an overhead pickaxe. Originally the design was the other way around with the sloped angle side housing the spinning blade but it was quite difficult to get enough purchase under the other bots because of the wedges steepness.

Here's another 9 designs that I've made.

Slumblebee (portmanteau of Slum and Bumblebee) / Viking / Soldier

 


Thwack! / Thwack Harder! / Rat Boy

 


Thwack! was an attempt at creating a fresher spin on the concept of a thwackbot. Instead of relying on gyroscopic inertia and force of sideways impact to damage others, Thwack! relies on two hinged flipping panels to toss the arm 180 degrees onto the top of another robot, instead of attacking the sides. (it's just a shame that it's quite slow and not very forceful when it does hit!)

 


Hammerhead / Dragonfire / Clubland

Where did you download the wheel skin on Eviscerator? I could swear that my brother made that skin, long ago, but I don't remember him ever putting it up for download.

You have some really cool robots here, a lot of them have a nice retro feel. Keep up the good work.

The skin itself is called "027 Wheel" and is a reskin for one of the chunkier wheels. Found it by using cheatbot2.

I'm not sure where I got it from, I think it might've been in the pack itself. I don't remember seeing it in any other iterations of RA2 games/mods/packs.

Found the files in Components under "027tire"

Another six? Another six! Ygdrassil 3 and Mania might be my 2 most favorite designs other than Black Lodge, Neo Chopper and Thwack!

Ygdrassil 3 is a remodeling of a .bot I was thinking of submitting to a tourney while it was still "Retro Rat Mega" where it was basically the same design but brown and black. Y'know, like a rat.


Ygdrassil 1 / Ygdrassil 2 / Ygdrassil 3

 


Paranoia / Mania / Insomnia

If you can fix that panel gap on the front of Ygdassil 3 it would be really nice.

You should really install DSL Complete edition. It lacks some of the custom components your install has but it would be neat to see what you can do with it. Some of your stuff here is pretty impressive but you won't be able to enter tournaments with them due to all the custom components, which is a shame IMO

For most of the builds, the only custom components are things like Black Lodge  / Bee Boy / Neo Chopper / The SLAM's using a modded variation of 259's beltdrive which would have a workaround somehow - although with some of them it'd be such a switcharound that the finished .bot would look remarkably different to its original counterpart. The restructuring for most of them would be somewhat more difficult because of the way the internals are sorted, but not impossible.

Some of the interiors for some .bots like Slumblebee / Paranoia / Insomnia / Thwack Harder! / Rat Boy / and Leapfrogger are all in order, but seeing as most of them are overweight/underweight by sizeable amounts, rebuilds/reshapings would be in order.  Leapfrogger is actually the 2nd iteration of a .bot called "Tadpole" which is pretty much the same as Leapfrogger but split in half. I think that might be one of the only properly applicable .bots for any tournies other than Slumblebee.

Isn’t Yggdrasil a Norse mythological tree?

Yes, it is. I was under the belief that Ygdrassil was the name of a serpent in relation to the tree, but apparantly that's not the case. I liked the name, so it stayed.

Thwack! was originally called Mjolnir, and was exactly the same as it looks but with a Hammer of Thor on the end.

Just downloaded DSL 2.2 Complete Edition v2 and I'm going to try and rebuild a good chunk of the lads in proper format. Is the 2.2 Complete Edition the base format for tournament entries in the IRL/DSL circuit?

Yeah pretty much every single IRL tournament uses 2.2 Complete Edition these days. Look forward to seeing what you come up with  :smile:
