Okay, so Thrack and I decided to team up for Wen's Team Tournament, and what am I entering with?

 
   

Something really boring.  Yeah I know, but this wasn't my original plan.  I actually wanted to do an extenderbot which turned out to look like this:

 


If you couldn't tell already, I didn't have nearly as much room nor weight to make it a LW so I'm pretty disappointed.  I am not throwing away that skull on the top since it's what I intended to be it's unique feature so yeah.

So this DSL 2.3 that FOTEPX/Shima is working on is gonna feature numerous rebuilds and remakes for the original AI.  Here's just a taste for one of them:

 


Some changes are gonna be made by him, so what's here isn't final, but the changes are probably gonna be very minor, especially since I haven't tested it much.   :dumb)

As a fan of angled spinners, I approve of this design. :thumbup

Halloween is coming soon, so I might as well update an oldie.



For the most part, this isn't that drastically changed from the last version, but now it uses DSC parts to be up to date, and overall just looks cleaner to be honest.  I really wanted to make fang like things underneath, Ala SABotage, but I really didn't want to sacrifice weight for the flipper itself.

And now for something a little more intricate.



Something I usually don't do, but something I came up with an idea for with my family getting an explorer soon in my mind, but anyway, yeah.  There are some things I wanted to list in the splash, but I don't think I had room for it in the splash.  Such as...



C A R  S T E E R I N G



All the hinges possible to open the hood and all the doors.  One I did list in the splash, but I could've gotten away with using just one.



It's nearly as big as the sports car in the DSL garage.  This is how far we've come folks.  Not bad for a Forb Explorer.

Oh yeah, the name is actually Forb Explorer, not Ford Explorer.  If you looked at the font, it actually has a 'b' not a 'd' since originally thought this looked like a knock-off Ford when I finished due to the blockiness.  I mean, RA2 is limiting, but it's a tad ridiculous at times.  I fooled you all and none of you noticed.   :mrgreen:  Although the actual best part is this:

#2 is a bronco not an explorer smh

This was NOT intentional, and I never realized it until he said that.  Of course the guy who knows things about cars would call me out on that.  I found this kinda funny, but I guess I gotta learn to give artist intention a little more obvious so maybe this is something to take away.

Lastly, I only realized this after this is done, but the weight is technically incorrect.  Just add 400 KG to the splash since I forgot about the backdrop when I was making the splash.  Whoops.   :facepalm:

Very good artbot. Also, surprised that you can make an extenderbot tbh, especially a 3200-ish kg UHW artbot one

Congrats on winning BOTM Once I saw that Ford Explorer I was instantly blown away by it, that thing is a masterpiece, and definitely deserved November's BOTM for its class.

By the way does it roll over when it is running Wilderness AT tires like the real thing does? All joking aside as soon as I saw it I instantly knew which bot to vote for. Also regarding the first one on the page, it kind of reminds me of FunsDead.

Edit: I am a petrolhead as well, and I Disagree with 090901 here. To me it does not look like a Bronco, it looks more like a Fiat 127, an Italian compact from the 70's but was produced until 2008 as the infamous Yugo GV/Zastava Koral.
Let me tell you something I learned through life... The weakest link in the chain isn't always the failure point.

i just said that because its called a ford in the splash, and a bronco is a 2dr suv while an explorer is a 4dr

More extender-bot practice:



Heavily inspired by Click's Cheez-it Box of Doom, which I have actually downloaded from the old, old Atari forums way back when I was lurking on anything RA2 related.  So I got the idea to make the Cheez-It box the base and experiment around it.  Barely had enough weight to make it even a HW to begin with, and I originally disliked how it looked in the end.  I thought it looked slightly too boxy and goofy, but later on, I kinda grew to it since it is based on a Cheez-it box, which is advertised to be goofy and rather wacky, so I guess I may have unintentionally gotten the vibe... maybe... hopefully... okay probably not.

And yes, the hammers, while slow, do actually go 360 because that's pretty fun.  If there's something like a PWS3 and I do happen to have some time for it, then I'll most likely enter this because these seems crazy enough for anyone to drive and anyone who has to drive it later might have a complicated time.  At least both sides will have fun right?

That's pretty nice. And I also like the Diesector inspired pickaxes

Getting bots ready for Orc Wars 3.  Here's at least one of them:



SnowStorm hasn't exactly had the best luck due to issues that either were a loss of power, or just a weak flipper.  This time, I hoped to at least address both, and still give it some strength.  Going back to the dual Storm Burst flippers and it gives some strong flips, but I am a little afraid that it hasn't gotten some OOTA flips, but I'm hoping it survives long enough for a Judge's Decision, and not get robbed somehow.  The only real downsides that it's not as fast as I'd like.  Even using NPCFs, it's not the fastest flipper out there.  I mean, it's not the end of the world, but hoping for a future build, I'll find a way to incorporate speed, battery power, flipping abilities, and defenses so it's the best of all worlds.  Maybe Click's overvolt system if it's used in the future might help.  Although I haven't quite tested it yet.  So maybe that'll help.

IDK what I think about the eyeball LEDs, but overall it's almost as good as an icy robot can get. :thumbup

I feel like an old man building most of my bots from a chassis while you guys are advancing in the extenderbots world.  It won't be long before tell kids to get off my lawn with things like this:



Turret Hammer CW for 8bean's Pathfinder tournament.  Untested as of now, but I might have to make sure the AI doesn't do stupid things before I even come close to sending it.  Been a while since I even made one of these to begin with.

Oh right I forgot about this thing:



This was one of my other entrants for OW3 which actually did rather well in qualifiers.  Did its job at being an aggressive bot hence the name.  One of the bots I've made that I'm actually rather proud of.  Maybe it's the new skin it has.
