Don_Cheto Does DSL
« on: June 13, 2022, 04:50:01 PM »
Hola amigos! I’m relatively new to Robot Arena 2 but I thought I’d make a profile on here and post my my new robot, Ominous Starfish  :smile:


It’s 599 in weight and the finished version is covered up underneath with aluminum sheets! Hope to compete with this sometime, any advice on improvements are welcome, gracias!

Neat.  Does the robot not have a bottom plate by default or was this screenshot taken without it?

Otherwise, a pretty good robot.
I could make another LvD.  That would be cool.

Welcome!

Nice first effort, especially considering it's an extenderbot. Don't often see those for a first posted bot.

2WD slimbodies is probably right on the edge of what is passable for drive on a cruiserweight, even with super grippy wheels like motorcycles, but i suppose given it's a HS it doesn't need too much drive, so it's probably fine.

Assuming the alu sheets you're referring to for covering the bottom are the halfsheets, I'd try to use alu panels instead to match what you've got on the top. It'll look better and probably give the internals a modicum more protection as the halfsheets are so thin that stuff can hit straight through them (panels have that issue too to some degree, but less-so)

Overall though a very solid start. Looks well thought out, and like some solid effort has gone into making it look nice, which is always good to see. Look forward to seeing more from you!
