sns. little too slow. good damage tho


another ss killing poker. pointless but fun build


Angled vs, weapons do quite a lot of damage. Hex plates also last for ages so it's a pretty durable weapon


little angled tracked vs. alright but leans forward slightly. May move drive forward.


Counter rotating fbd that moves to a vertical position and then spins in place because I forgot a vertical stabiliser.

okay last one

same chassis as the previous one. Weapons are really powerful, very good damage output.

See above, but weapons aren't so good. Very durable.

i like how your bots are the very definition of DSL-S

Ion Horse 3's reach looks somewhat poor though

I don't think stacking skirt hinges like that triggers agod.

it looks nice. the 4-hexplate extender work is a nice touch even if it honestly wastes weight.

lol yeah i know. I was the first one to stack skirt hinges long ago.

I just used stacking as in "they're stacked together" not as in the building method :P

Gutripping VS. Weapons last a long time since they are largely out of the way from attack, and the damage output is ludicrous. Really excellent at gutripping, but its slightly jumpy as it moves a long. Dunno if it's affecting wedge quality. Largely happy with this one, despite the weak armour (Plastic 3).

Just asking, why do you use skirt hinges for wedges? I thought metal hinges made the best wedges.

That VS looks awesome, btw. Do those hex plates last long enough?

skirt hinges work perfectly fine as long as you only use the middle point. of course back in the day people didn't know that and so when their skirt hinged wedges got outwedged by a metal hinge (which is just a servo) they thought it was the skirt hinge, when in truth it was how people attached the skirts. it was finally proven false only like years after the fact, but whatever.

I've been finding out recently that the further you put the skirt/wedge/whatever from the center of the hinge/burst/etc the worse it becomes. If your wedge is dead center to the axis of the burst its your best bet. The same applies to angled skirts, they get "less wedgy" the further you get from the center.

yeah 123 went over the skirt hinge stuff maybe 1 or 2 years ago. There's actually applications for all 3 of the wedge types we've got in DSL, since Mako wedges work well on slower bots, but yeah Skirt hinges have their uses again.

Which VS were you referring to, TRB? Hex plates normally work fine as a tough extender since they have a high fracture iirc. At least I've pretty much never seen them get broken anyway. As for the one where they're the weapon extenders, they last longer than most equivalents.

Basically a mini disfear. I think the DS teeth are actually doing less damage than beaters so I'll swap em, probably something to do with how the hitboxes overlap.

If your wedge is dead center to the axis of the burst its your best bet. The same applies to angled skirts, they get "less wedgy" the further you get from the center.
So how do skirt hinges compare to metal hinges if you only use the centre connection point? Are they still a bit worse, about the same or better?

Around the same from my experience, but they often move around or "bounce" slightly more so they're less consistent.
