Nicks Showcase Featuring Boxes with a Hammer
« on: April 02, 2019, 09:02:10 PM »
Hi All, its Nick here, builder of "Breaking Point". For now im showing of a bot Called "Ace 5". Im not really proud of this as it was rushed and not so good weaponry. It has Steel 3. Any constructive Criticism would be appreciated.   - Nick

So first, you should insert your attachments to your post rather than just making the pics like that. Also, I recommend you save your screenshots as png instead of bmp, and to drop it

As for the bot, the skin looks decent. However, one tip is you can scale your bot skin before making it to be two times the size. So you can have sizes like 512x512, and 1024x1024

Also, I recommend you use very small VDMA's for the hammer instead, as they are stronger. In addition, I think you can ditch some of the large air tanks to save weight for something better, like two wedgelets so your bot won't get wedged. Also, not sure with the second flamethrower behind the front one

The bot is pretty decent though. I like the Diesector concept

"One Way To Destruction" 2 Armed Flipper powered by large VDMA's. 8 Tornado wheels all powered by NPC Fast. It does struggle to flip bots.

Again, put your pictures on your post by pressing insert attachment after choosing what file to use in the attachment. It will make it easier and more pleasing to see the pictures.

As for the bot itself, the main problem with it is the flipper. The flipping arm should look like one cohesive arm than two thin different flipping arms. To fix it, you can make the arm thicker, as well as intersect the extenders on the arms with each other, then position both arms so they look like one arm than two different arms.

Also, skirt is considered illegal in IRL building most of the time, as IRL, they would bend when hitting or get hit by something. You can replace the skirts with wedgelets

And for the arms itself, also reduce the height on it. It looks a bit tall honestly. Make it so the arms are flush with the top of the chassis than the current one you have

This looks like it could flip mad patties at a burger joint. I've now decided I can't wait to watch robots make burgers and day dream about them getting mad and fighting.

For low blow use typhoon teeth and make it a 6 mag or a dual perm, for lockdown use perm 132s and use extenders to form the weapon support
PWS is the Best ra2 Tournament, with OW taking 2nd

I'm kinda at a loss for how Low Blow is an SHW. Can we see a shot of the internals and can you tell us what chassis armour it has please?

I know you're aware that Lockdown isn't IRL, but it's also not DSL-S BTW because you've used CF to build it. Dunno if it was intended to be DSL-S but just thought I'd give you a heads up

you're going to get very little, if any feedback on an unrealistic dsl bot. you're better off sticking with IRL in dsl if you want feedback.
