Haven't been commenting a lot lately, but these builds lately have just been clean and solid.  The only thing I would change with Augmented Chaos is maybe make the name logo on the chassis more outlined?  Just slightly to make it pop a tad more?  Not much else I can say unfortunately.

dootIRL (Kill Switch and Aug Chaos [again])
« Reply #382 on: May 23, 2020, 09:36:13 AM »
...so, anyways, with rampant depression and other stuff aggressively acting up on me, why not make a new 'bot for the hell of it?


This is Kill Switch. A 'bot which took most of its main inspiration from Mega Melvin, though with more of an industrial twist that I applied to it, mainly on the axe and wheelguards. This 'bot is most likely never gonna appear in tournaments, mainly due to my fleeting interest and because it uses a Judge Gavel and Burst Motor, so those plans went out the window. Still, I'm happy with this machine...


...oh, yeah, here's Augmented Chaos again, but this time I'm actually gonna act like I'm enthusiastic or something.


So, yeah, Augmented Chaos. In a way, its a spiritual successor to Annihilatrix, though I've changed how it works, mainly in the drive. Now upgraded from 2WD TWM3R's to 4WD NPC's, Augmented Chaos is far quicker and deadlier than ever before. This comes at a cost to its armour, which is quite weak compared to Annihilatrix, but sometimes sacrifices must be made.

kill switch looks absolutely gorgeous, the chassis skin matches the extenders perfectly and the angled bits just pull the whole look together. as for kill switch, im not that big of a fan of ring spinners however you still make them look really solid.

dootIRL (Wild Side)
« Reply #385 on: June 03, 2020, 10:39:35 AM »
Time to continue the conquest of making new 'bots in fine style... or not. Welp, here's another one to add to the showcase.


Here's Wild Side. A 'bot based mainly off of Onslaught, Wild Side uses 2NPC's and a rare case of Power Steering on a 'bot meaning that its quite the challenge to control. The weapons include a lifting scoop that is more designed for ramming and shoving, a self-righter mounted on the top to help the 'bot get itself back up and some rear spikes if the scoop isn't enough.

Spicy
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.

Wild side is pretty neat.  I just noticed the whole 80's aesthetic that you managed to put into the skin and such.  I guess the only gripe is how stubby it kinda looks.  I don't know, just something about it gives me that vibe.

Still cool overall though.

its cool to see the steering unit used on such an elegant build. i love how you used the drums around the axle so it matches the body better.
