Big Boa is just a wedge and was the first new pack snake, designed after Queen Lance-A-Frog beat the original pack in Deathmatch. Its designed for Horizontal spinners, which are most of the pack's weakness. All steel front and TWMR drive, but its already pretty close to the maximum weight unforunately. About Corn Snake, I wanted it to be 2wd, but I thought 4wd looked better  :smile:.

I always appreciate your advice Hoppin. Its always really insightful and helpful, so thank you!

Ah ok, I think for something like QLAF, the best thing to have is a vertical spinner, something to get under it, but against a tombklone that's probably the best idea. I think with Corn Snake, 2wd with bulkier wheels would look better than 4 tinier wheels. I think designing it to look Thundercracker would really help it.

Anytime man, great to see such a rapid pace of improvment

Hopefully the Pack Snakes don't go up against QLAF in Robogames or something, since Big Boa is the only "new" pack snake fighting with the OG snakes! Either way, I wouldn't want to burden DoT with all of the robots and another update!

Here's Corn Snake with a new drive set up (Slimbody). I tried fitting different teeth, but they caused far too much gyro.

Apart from the hinge sticking out and the flat motor being slightly exposed it's good man, especially if its a 300kg bot

There was originally an extender on the middle of the hinge wedge to make the exposed hinge less obvious, but it clipped with the weapon, which sucks. The robot is 291, so I’m tight on weight aesthetically and functionally  :(

skin looks good but the wheel guards don't quite look like they're attached properly. It's a shame you don't have the weight to put more extenders on the front and back

Tunguska 4, my first extenderbot and the fourth version of a robot that's never been in a tournament. That'll hopefully change though!



In less interesting news, Uroboros is now interchangeable. Decided the original wedge just didn't work against flippers very well. This version's new wedge has those wedgelets on top to trap opponents and also makes it slightly more stable while driving upside down.

Tungusta is a great effort for your first extender bot

Kraken Clone (Hadad) and an Escape Velocity clone (Gravity Well). Both heavies, nearing 799.



Semi Hypothermia clone. Both parts open upwards. Was going for a design that would have the bottom prongs fire downwards and have the top clamp fire upwards so that it could suplex stuff, but it didn't really work. Also, I tried doing a pseudo Team Toad sticker on top, but you can't see it. 799

Made some more updates to Fitz 2, and I'm relatively satisfied. List of improvements is long and winding, but the most notable are: Bulkier spinner killer front, side armor, and the tail looking less ass. Speaking of, I'm glad Fitz's tail did what I kind of wanted it to do and kept big spinners away, so that's cool

 

Tokyo Rift- A Double Dutch thing with a Tornado gearbox and a TWMR.

Fusion Cannon and Null Ray- An absurd HW cluster. Fusion Cannon is the reason why I pray every night for a tournament with manual countdowns, and Null Ray is a compact and fast boy


Fox Pack- Another HW cluster, sort of a refinement of the Pack Snakes from Mech Madness. No IRL problems this time either  :really_makes_you_think:

Its been a while  :dumb)

 


Two definitely original robots, don't steal. Flat Rate and Colonel Kabam. Both have Pl10, Colonel Kabam is all Ti on the front and Flat Rate is almost entirely Alu.

they both look cool dude, the only thing I would try and add to the hammer is wedgelettes on the front if you have the weight

I feel like you could make the chassis on the hammer bot smaller, thus enabling you to put more weight on the hammer of front.

A quick update to Colonel Kabam that addresses some of the stuff brought up above. Improvements include- More reliable self righting, stronger weapon, shorter and stronger (Steel) wedge, and the ability to actually get under things.
