Title: hey gamers, it's Plerco here (DSL Edition)
Post by: Plerco on January 19, 2018, 06:31:37 PM
Hi everyone. I've been lurking for a bit now, and I finally decided to make a showcase. This is Caspian Cobra 2, a much improved version of Caspian Cobra from GTMCS2. I'm trying to reduce the likelihood of havoks with this version, since that's a really prevalent weakness in Version 1. However, practically everything about it has been improved, and I wish I had made and entered this into GTMCS instead of the kind of sh** V1. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Welcome man.

Firstly the Insert attachment button seen below is what you need to press once you've uploaded your image!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Secondly
The bot looks good for a beginner, however, you have too many batteries in the bot. For 3 spin motors you'll only need 2 red batteries, so that will free up weight for any other additions you want to add

Sounds good. Will fix both in a bit. Thanks for the help.

Well, it's a tombstone clone. However, it has a skin and so it stands out amongst the black trapezoids and blue boxes of the world.

You got me there. It was intended to be a Tombclone from the start, but I hoped the skin would make it stand out a little, so I'm glad its not a COMPLETE boring square.

Welcome, always cool to see new members like me!

I love the disc support and the wheel guard set up you have they look pretty sweet.
I'm not the best builder so you don't have to listen to my advice but I'm not sure you need a reinforced perm with the protection it's already got, if you change that and get rid of unnecessary batts you'll have a lot of weight for better armour or something.
Alternatively you could try loosing the weight and make it into a freakin' mean CW.

Either way it's a really cool bot man, keep at it and I'd love to see more of your stuff!

It's a decent build. But seriously you don't need an anchor point to support your perm you know. You can change the attachment point of an component by clicking on one of the white screws in the component's window as show in the image below. Also your still have 48.2kg to play with, so you can use the weight getting better drive motor, inserting some armor plates to protect vital parts like your wheels or whatever your fancy. Looks wise, you should consider about getting DSC's IRL Skin packs, with these packs you should be able to make your robot much more colourful and less like a grey, metal box. You don't have to download these packs, but it's only if you want your bot to look more ascetically pleasing.

The anchor point is so embarrassing. Its a leftover from Caspian Cobra 1, which was literally my first build in DSL ever, and thankfully, I learned how to change attachment point a little after I made Caspian 1. About drive motors, what would you suggest as better? I thought NPC Fasts were pretty good, but I'm sure there are better motors.

About the DSC IRL Packs, I've tried downloading them, but they don't show up in game. They're in my Components Folder all extracted, but they didn't work. I'll probably spend some time today trying to make it work, since everyone uses it (and it looks really good).

It has a reinforced Perm because the AI hammers actually hit it quite a bit, which was a big pain in the butt. Was thinking about making it a cruiser weight too, I might try it.

Anyways, thanks for the compliments, it means a lot! I'm really proud of the disc support and the wheel guards too, even though they aren't perfect.

Here's a clusterbot. It's my entry into Deathmatch, and its underweight. Their weapons struggle with having power, but they have a surprising amount of push. I'd love some feedback.

They can last a whole match. There's an ant battery in them too. They start to slow down near the end, but its usually ok.

They look pretty good. Fairly conventional design but the skins you've given them go a long way towards making them stand out. No real cardinal sins committed in terms of component choice or placement either. Nice job.

Ants do suck in 2.2, either way it's a cool idea to have two front hinged cluster bots and the skin is neat so good job keep it up

My first creation using DSC's IRL Pack. No fancy splash, since it likely won't be seeing combat anytime ever (it barely moves). Either way, I thought it kind of looked ok and maybe you guys could get a kick out of it.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Also redid some bits of Caspian Cobra with the Pack, and I thought it looked nice.

Took a while, but I made this. Meet Sidewinder, the biggest pain in the butt to build. Remind me not to make vertical spinners again... Sometimes has problems with self righting depending on the angle its flipped onto, but is actually pretty good at gut ripping.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]   [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Sorry about the small splash, I don't know why it came out so tiny.
Title: Re: Plerco Sucks at Everything (DSL Edition)

That vertical spinner looks great :) my only advice is to move the wheels up to make him inevitable also you put the spinner teeth the wrong way
Title: Re: Plerco Sucks at Everything (DSL Edition)
Post by: Olister92 on January 24, 2018, 06:19:47 AM
Sidewinder looks cool, do you have enough weigh to add disc supports on the other side?
It doesn't have to be anything fancy, it would make it look more IRL

Two new heavyweights. Very sorry for the barf-ugly splash today, I wasn't feeling quite up to make it good looking.

Babaulti is essentially just Sidewinder but with a srimech, stronger front armor, and some other decorative changes. It has tweaks to its front ground clearance as well, and now can actually self right reliably.

Tunguska was inspired by SOW and Apex, and is just as unstable as the latter. 60 KG hammers and a metric sh** ton of ant batteries, since nothing else can be fitted into it. Not my best build tbh, but it wasn't really build with championship victories in mind.

I like how squat Babaulti is - it's super-compact and is bordering on cute with how tiny it is.

Nice looking bots here man, Tunguka seems really nicely built. I rather like the custom bar you've built here. However, whilst I can't see how many ant bats you've got exactly, I can say you best put 3 red bats in, this will save you weight which you can use else where. You still have 40~kg on top of that for armour, better drive or more weapons.

as for Babaulti. Underweight, but that will allow you to add to it and improve. I'd recommend raising the angle of the motor higher, this can be done by placing a angled extender piece on the chassis and then placing the perm on that, than giving the disc small typhoon teeth instead of cutting teeth. Wheel guards are a good idea and just general underside armour is a good idea. And just make sure you have enough batteries. Keep up the great work man, excited to see what you can make.

New robot. Heavyweight (794.4 kg). More of a pusher than a flipper since its so fast. Might experiment with modularity with this one.
Title: Re: Plerco Sucks at Everything (DSL Edition)
Post by: Olister92 on February 01, 2018, 06:18:35 AM
looks cool for a pushbot, try to tuck the front hinges into the chassis to make them less visible would be my only recommendation but that's just a purely aesthetic thing

2 new bots. Trying out the lower weight classes, and it hasn't been going great. Phase was inspired by Overdrive from Battlebots, and it hilariously flops around a bit after a flip. Has troubles with its flipper clipping through the ground.... somehow. Graveholme is definitely not Tombstone, and its weapon is so ridiculously exposed its almost funny.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

And even though almost no one cared about NTB, I followed up on my statement about making it modular. Here's its anti horizontal spinner configuration, with stronger side plates (Ti to St), a static steel wedge replacing the flipper, and a new flamethrower. I originally had base armor, but the robot kept getting stranded on the half sheets I would put on, which is ass
Title: Re: Plerco Sucks at Everything (DSL Edition)
Post by: Badnik96 on February 03, 2018, 11:49:01 PM
looks like you got the weight classes mixed up :P

graveholme's weapon axle is floating and needs some extenders underneath it, and i think phase would perform better with some feet under the flipper, so there's something for the bot to rest on when it flips.

other than that, they look solid, if not a bit simple. Keep at it, dude

New robutt. Cherub inspired, and surprisingly can actually get under opponents. It's an absolute nightmare in arenas with pits once it gets under someone. Over sized chassis tho :(

NPC Fasts, 2 Extra Short Bursts. I completely forgot to put in an internal shot, whoops!

Ass looking splash today.

Bison can self right (usually) if its on its antlers and front flipper plate. If its stuck on the back plate, it pops itself onto the antlers, letting it self right. Way too complicated, but there's no other way I can find that doesn't involve the flipper arm phasing though the baseplate. Pretty good other than that.

Ophidia is the next in my snake robot lineage. 3 Medium Bursts because why not  :thumbup.

Post by: pokebro14 on February 10, 2018, 04:51:10 AM

Post by: Jaydee99 on February 10, 2018, 07:08:27 AM

I agree with pokebro on Ophidia, I think there's a bit too much space between the wheels and the guards. Other than that, it's nice work :)

You'd be surprised! It can actually get under some robots (which surprised me), mostly spinners, and Eye Stabber. It doesn't have much of a gyro dance, but when it gets stuck on a wedge, it sort of flops around and can do damage. Its not the most competitive robot, but its good fun.

Tunguskant and Provider seem like just basic overhead spinners.  A different chassis shape might make them more appealing.
Does Excessive Vitriol have any teeth on its drum?  If not, it's going nowhere.
Seyfert's wedge is way too steep.  The robot is gonna get slammed and do a sick front flip before getting smash.  Side note:  I'm not sure that's an adequate support on the left side of its disc.
The cruiserweights look decent if their weapon is what I'm assuming they are. FHF
Babaulty is sweet though, but it looks like it have the same weapon support problem as Seyfert.
The SHW Clusters both look rather bland, plus I don't think they'll be allowed as the rules state defensive weaponry isn't allowed.

Tunguskant and Provider are pretty boring shaped, I agree with you on that.

EV has 4 small beaters.

Can confirm, Seyfert faceplants too much. Basically everything is getting revised soon.

The cruiserweights are in fact Front Hingers. They did ok in Deathmatch!

I assume you mean the beater bars? I'm not sure if that counts as defensive weaponry, but if they do, I'l certainly change that! They look bland, but the idea is to just keep ramming their opponents into walls, so hopefully they wont be too boring in practice  :mrgreen:

It's been a while! We weren't even on the 1st page of DSL Showcases for a while! Kind of lost motivation to post here, but I've still been building stuff! Here's an modification to Taipan for Orc's Wars: International Wars. Say hello to Taipan's brother, Cardinal of Sin (Vatican City). Changed to steel sides, rather than aluminum, made it invertible, removed the Alu sheets on the bottom since they hindered movement on the RW Arena, and made the front forks hinged rather than on a basplate anchor. Also, the most important change of all: the snake has a pope hat!

The front assembly feels very DSL-S, with the wedge prongs just sticking out and nothing being underneath or around the wedges to support thrm. Have a look at how builders like Thyrus or cephalopod do IRL flippers. If you look at the flipper below by cephalopod, you can see how it doesn't look like it has bits hanging off the front, rather it looks like a single contained unit.

Bot dump ahead:

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Fitz:  A front hinge flipper with Storm bursts and two NPC fasts. Inspired by some of TheRoboteer's old robots. Does pretty well, but since its not too wide, it turns pretty bad. Mostly steel though, so that lets it at least survive well.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Thundercracker is a 4 small typhoon VS. Never done before, right??? Gets stranded on its front a lot, which sucks, but I couldn't find a way to prevent that other than putting a long and ugly protrusion on the front. NPC fasts for the back wheels, Astroflights for the front. Inspired by BBQ from KoB and Brutus from Battlebots.

The flipper looks a bit too tall for a front hinger and the wedge on the drum looks like its floating without any supports on the inside. They both look pretty neat though and I'm sure will be great with a few improvements

Gonna do some advice not only for these bots but the vert before.

Fitz - Lets start with the front hinge flipper shall we, firstly. I rather like it. However, the wedge doesn't need those pink wedgelets imo, they look off and provide no real advantage. I'd use the weight to add side panels to protect that exposed chassis. Secondly the spike strip at the top... idk what it does but it kinda looks outta place, unless you need it I'd recommend removing it and putting the weight into the aforementioned side panels (im guessing it's for tipping the bot back on it's wheels from the rear, but you don't need that much weight dedicated to that, just poke 2 wedgelets out the back and maybe move the wheels so they're poking out if they aren't already. Other than that, super clean now, looks great.

Huge Jackman - Beautiful name and build. My only complaints are A: The side spikes, are they needed, as I think you could create the same self righting effect with a Steel round 72/48cm extender and maybe a spike on the end for less weight. B: Are they medium beaters? I'd actually just recommend using large typhoon teeth, more effective, fraction of the weight. C: How durable are the back supports cuz once they're gonna the bot kinda spasms in place hopefully they are.

Thundercracker 4 - Great start I feel, good and cool concept to build and you've done well with it. But I'd recommend switching to 2wd, the astroflights don't really add any kinda power at the HW level and just take up battery life and general weight that could be put elsewhere. I'd actually go from 8 teeth down to 4, it just looks better and then use the weight to construct some wheelguards, better frontal and under armour. And the wedgelets poking through the front I feel look kinda awkward but Im guessing they pin bots in, allowing for the teeth to deal damage better. These are most likely whats preventing you from self righting on your front as they seem most likely to prevent the disc from hitting the floor and flipping you back over.

I really like all the bots you've shown off recently. Super cool, keep it up.

Ok hoppin covered all the important points so let me say that I would change some things astetic wise. Change the skin to something a lot more smoother,you can do this by copying the extender or armour file to texture library to use with bots to make them look more cleaner. Then make the guys face on the top of the bot and just make it one big face.

I would recommend also trying to make the arms a little cooler looking e.g make it thicker, make a cool pattern all that stuff

The only problem that i see with TC4 is the wedglet at front, other than that, looks cool
Ooh and reason it tips. It has high center of gravity, and most of the weight of the bot is the disc itself

Personally with the Disco Inferno bot, I'd make the disc and the body as flat as you can.

Heres a MW robutt. Project Mogul! Been trying to get a triangle robot going, but it didn't really work. It was originally a flipper, but that looked like ass, so its an overhead spinner now. Was debating entering this instead of Amano into the OW2 MW side event, but even though its better looking than Amano, its so much more unstable. Big ol' thumbs up if you know what the names referencing, too!

Is Big Boa just a wedge?

Running through all 8 of them. Here we go.

Rat Snake - Pretty standard for a drum spinner so I can't really give much else on it. Maybe vlads instead of Tornado's can give you weight to put else where.
Big Boa - On the assumption it's just a wedge. Just make it super defensive. NPC Fast too.
Sea Snake - Pretty cool for a lifter, maybe give it a wider surface area to lift from or give it some wheel protection, that's really all I can think of.
Corn Snake - I'd actually drop it to 2wd (Maybe TMWR if it isn't) and give it a good wedge and also up the damage on the teeth, maybe use beaters. As a vert I'd focus a lot more into the weapon as that's what's gonna do the damage.

Dwarf Adder/Garter Snake - Pretty much the same bar the paint. Really like them, they seem to be the best outta the rest of the pack. So that's good.
Ghost Snake - It works, but looks rather bland, I'd give it some flair to make it stand out compared to the others. And if the wheels are sticking out maybe have it so it doesn't.
Bush Viper - Pretty cool whilst remaining pretty simple. Im gonna guess it's a perm 80, maybe see if you could fit a perm 132 in, this might require you to drop the drive but it can definitely give you much more damage.
 
I really like the new members of the pack, really enjoy "The Swarm" level of customization you have when going into fights. And you should use action cam if you wanna get 4 bots in the same screenshot at once. Which can be found here: https://gametechmods.com/forums/downloads/?sa=view;down=179

As for the triangular overhead spinner. Flip the motors round. It'll give you a better turn speed and you only need 2 red packs in there. Then you could use the weight for better drive if you can fit it in or just better chassis armour.

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!

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  :(

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.

Charybdis - Wonderful body shape super unique and the teeth really help this puffer fish vibe I get for it, I really love it. Maybe a better skin, with some graphics along each side of the flipper might look nice.

Super dwarf adder - I think the wedge panel is the main issue with this bot. If you can move that down to cover the exposed hinge I'd enjoy it a lot better. The wheelguards themselves are rather boxy, you might be able to add some angle panels in areas to integrate it better with the front of the machine. Tis about all.

Mecha Ultra Super Prius - Yea it's nice, I know little on dsl-s so I cant really comment.

Babulault 3 - Needs some supports on the weapon I feel, other than that. Love it.

Bevourer - hella nice. Great clamp bot.

They all look pretty good man. The weapon motor on the MW is a bit exposed for my taste but I love the hammer bot it's easily my favourite

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 :>

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

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
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
Title: Re: Plerco Sucks at Everything (DSL Edition)
Post by: Plerco on June 08, 2018, 08:23:08 PM
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.
 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
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.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
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.

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....?
Title: Re: Plerco Sucks at Everything (DSL Edition)
Post by: Plerco on June 14, 2018, 06:10:15 PM
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

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
Some better angles of the robots so you can actually see them  :dumb)
Title: Re: Plerco Sucks at Everything (DSL Edition)
Post by: FOTEPX on June 14, 2018, 06:41:16 PM
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.

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.

on that flipper i'm not fond of outside motors like that. if something gets under you they'll rip some of the wheels off and suddenly you're even more screwed than the usual.

Also a secondary wedge system is pointless if it's shorter than the flippers. you're gonna get outwedged frequently and on a flipper, the wedge is your life.

Copals are a waste too. Just use 4WD NPC Fasts. Or 4 double magmotors, since they're very narrow but long so you can put the 3 bursts in between them, and the batteries behind them in the space created by the somewhat long 2 double magmotors. Also using different wheel sizes is gonna make your wheel base uneven if you aren't careful. I would advise against it.

I'd just put all drive and flippers into the chassis tbh.

Made some big revisions to Solar Storm after its good run in Deathmatch 2, because it definitely still had weaknesses. Longer wedge to more efficiently kill horizontals, ditched the wheel guards because lol what did they do in the first place, and more battery life (which was v2's biggest weakness imo, I'm like 99% sure it conked out at the end of the Pyrothere fight).

Misc. stuff that's pretty eh

2 bots built on the same chassis. Top one is the original, with a flipper on top and a flipper on bottom, sort of St. Agro style. However, rather than the bottom flipper firing backwards, it fires forwards. Bottom one has more weight put into the drive, armor, and beefing up the top flipper while removing the bottom one to make a more conventional robutt

Rebuild of a bot from a little while back. Acts more like a saw than the last one while still maintaining the idea of an overhead saw that can function as a traditional VS all the same

it is an extenderbot, although it probably could've been a chassis

That is some clean extenderbot work, yo! Loving the colour schemes and overall designs, especially Phyto and Shorebreak. Great work!

A sh**ty cluster in the words of Code Red that will probably find a way to beat him in the next PWS like Slapshot

Squeakquel to On Duty which is in MM3, which should be its replacement, but isn't going to be because Nimbus is already in and this is basically Nimbus but not good

You think you’ll win too, and that’s the problem
