remove 2 drive motors, less big wheels, smaller chassis ?

and yes it is possible to make it LW with the same weaponry. I think (although it'll probably suck) I'll have a go at this.

Oh, I thought you meant just down-grading the armour :V

I'll give it another go.

Edit: By using the same weapon system and chassis, I was able to bring it down to 395 while also upgrading the armour to Steel 3 and changing it to 2 drive motors with slipper bottoms.
Like you say though, if it was a smaller chassis, it'd probably be able to become a LW.

Done it.



T5 or T3 armour, I've forgotten already :V

I think it came out really well. Unless there's something else you think I should change.

My entry for WTT II. I haven't built in 2 years, as you can see.

It's a lightweight. Weight is Steel 3. Runs on 4 Ants and drives with 2 Astroflights.

Do those wedge parts do much damage? Do the panic attack skirts get in the way? Might be worth angling the PA skirts outward a bit.

Wedges do a fair amount of damage, around 150-300 per second.

PA skirts are far enough apart to catch most things it would seem. It's a fairly wide bot.

My IRL DSL entry for GTMCS 2 looks bloody awful.





I feel like this is better. Needs a decent skin, though.

Edit: Forgot to mention this was being made for RedAce's Deathmatch. It weighs 591 and has Plastic 10 armour.

That's a lot better! If you could make the back wheelguard a flat bit and kind of make the extender work smoother, it'd look really good

Danke.

Would a better way of doing it be that I make a frame out of square extenders and then put the sheets over them?

Gave what I said a go and added a skin. Thanks to the chaps in the Discord for the assistance for the transparent skin/decal issue.






Now weighs 593 and there isn't any clipping with the front of the robot. I've also adjusted the hinges to make them closer to being horizontal.
