I haven't really been active here for a while, so here we go!

Charybdis: Front hinge. Wanted to do a more unusual shape for a front hinge, and this happened.

Second revision of the DA+GS concept. Much more competitive of a Middleweight now, unlike the one I entered into BGoBB. Stronger front, more batteries, and wheelguards, finally.

Still a little salty about MoD2 t b h. New Prius thats better than the original one in most ways except battery life. Not as powerful, but still strong enough for OOTAs. Hopefully it doesn't get TRFBD'd again :>

I HAVE AVENGED YOU! In all seriousness I beat trfbd

Thanks for the feedback on the bots :dumb)

Generic hammer that came out ok. More competitive than my last hammer, at least

Boomslang was an attempt to make a marginally less generic MW overhead, I wonder what its for :really_makes_you_think:. Ventura is a continuation of my recent clamp obsession, and its probably my only competitive one.




Olister covered the main issue with the MW, being the hugely exposed motor. You could solve for it by removing the extenders that protect the wheels, and using that to add some polycarb panels on top of the motors, maybe with some side extenders if possible.

Tantalus - Looks really ****ing nice. maybe the wedglets could be spaced out further due to them currently looking a tad odd in the position they're in, other than that I'm not sure what I can recommend. I am curious about the hammers swing, the counterweights that are on it and the jumping when fired.

Ventura - Personally I'd ditch the shrimech as you'd have the two back wheels on the ground when inverted, perhaps using that weight for extra damage on the jaws or armour up front

Thanks for the advice guys. I do agree that Tantalus is probably the best out of them, and yeah, 40kg of counterweights is way too much lmao. I tried doing some Ventura work without a srimech, and it was basically useless upside down. About Boomslang, I've decided to just ditch it, there's way too much clipping and exposed motor stuff for it to work in IRL, sadly.
 

A fun little potential cluster. Both work as MWs as well. Might add a 3rd to the trio, Morpheus for fighting certain horizontals better. Hypnos is meant to be a better tribute to Mecha Rampage than my last attempt, which wasn't... great. It works pretty well, with 2x astroflights/rubber wheels, and authentic W I D T H. Phobetor is a super underweight MW with 4x astros and an all steel front.


Slightly not so generic HS. Based on ORBY Blade from TIFR. The srimech arms are ever so asymmetric, which makes me want death, but the flipper motors just do not want to cooperate.

This was supposed to be in the last post but GTM would take a fat load when it was with 2 other pictures and crashed my browser. I wonder why :really_makes_you_think: Inspired by Pip's Beta Motor monstrosities

It'd be a better sh**post if we could actually see the bot, y'know. :dumb)

I can barely see anything from these angles, but they look pretty cool anyway. Goodbye 2 is still a wacky balance for an SNS.

you're not gaining anything with putting the drive outside on those first two bots. first one also needs a longer wedge
Come on guys just leave him alone.  No forum rule exists that ban players from showcasing useless ugly bots.

The Elite, The The Elite...

Welcome to the club buddy boy :cool:

Could you lift the camera up a bit? I share Phil's comment - really hard to see what's going on here.

FB-Ceo's chassis is too big. What the hell's going on in there?

GBFF2... Whaaa....?

Adressing some of the comments: The first two need drive outside of chassis because the motors won't fit inside the chassis. GBFF2 is pretty weird, but I like it should do decent damage, I guess


Some better angles of the robots so you can actually see them  :dumb)

These internals hurt me so bad

GamePigeoner's chassis is still way too big, even with everything exposed. It doesn't need that much battery power - just use two blacks and a battlepack, and build the chassis around the components you want to fit in it.

Same for FB-CEO2, you don't need that many batteries, and even if you did, the chassis' too big. Just use one Black Battery, save yourself 10kg. Also, if the motors won't fit inside the chassis, REDESIGN THE CHASSIS! Any component inside the chassis is invincible, and with this current setup you're wasting somewhere in the 10KG ballpark for no benefit whatsoever. Re-design the chassis to have space for two slimbodies and a black battery, and go from there.

I have the exact same complaints for GBFF2, except I don't even know what that bot is trying to be.

Yeaaaah, I've kind of been spamming here. But I feel like the Standard bots really need improvements


Yeah, the splash is ugly as hell, sorry. But they're all improved or whatever, a lot more compact than before. Basically the smallest I could get them, they should be better

Mohawk inspired thing, since I'm starting to like it for some reason, I think there's something wrong with me

Hmm the basic premise is there but there's a few flaws in the execution IMO. The beta sticking out the front of the wedge is pretty unsightly as-is, and I think I'd personally shorten the claw just a tad so that the curve starts closer to the bottom of the claw. Looks good other than that though.

I really like the detailing with the claw and front. However, I feel like a HS will snipe those poor sides. What armor is the chassis set to?

the claw design is beautiful but it looks like it'll get stuck on its side to me though
