Title: RedAce's DSL Showcase
Post by: RedAce on August 04, 2013, 06:46:41 AM
Hey guys, it's a long time since I last posted, but I never really left this place. I have been lurking into the DSL showcase and casting my BOTM votes.

But I think it's now time to start my own DSL showcase.

Starting with this:

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/25002persistance.png)

797.9 kgs, a bunch of ants, and a TWM3R powering the weapon.

Yes, I still need to create more original bots, but it's a start I guess.

Post by: AlexGRFan97 on August 04, 2013, 06:52:43 AM
You have been lurking, haven't you? That is a top-tier IRL bot right there, can't really suggest any improvements. Fairly unique srimech aswell.

Who is this guy, and why is his robot so awesome?

Who is this guy, and why is his robot so awesome?
RedAce used to be a no-nonsense pro stock builder in 2010/11. Even his first bots were ok before he learned to stack and do a few other tricks. He left us for 2 and a half years and now he's returned building DSL bots.

Wow RedAce! Welcome Back! I've been waiting for this day to happend. You were one of the most inspiring Stock builders to me.
And that's a nice bot, but I just wanted to know, Are you giving up Stock or are you just focusing on DSL for now?
Title: Re: RedAce's DSL Showcase
Post by: ty4er on August 04, 2013, 07:52:20 AM
awesome bot man, nice to see you back and with a bit more originality :P i'm not sure a twmr is powerful enough, you might want to try a perm or something
Title: Re: RedAce's DSL Showcase
Post by: RedAce on August 04, 2013, 08:41:04 AM
Are you giving up Stock or are you just focusing on DSL for now?
I've gone into realm of IRL DSL but maybe I'll update that thread, although I feel it's long dead.

i'm not sure a twmr is powerful enough, you might want to try a perm or something
I feared you would say that, so I updated it.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/44259persistance1.2.png)

799.8 now,
+more power
+stronger weapon
-weaker armor (Tite 5 to Alu 5)

But I also made a shell spinner, (even though that concept is just done to death.)

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/73295bloodhawk.png)

795.?, 4 ants.
Title: Re: RedAce's DSL Showcase
Post by: Tweedy on August 04, 2013, 08:45:18 AM
With the VS the perm needs some protection.
Title: Re: RedAce's DSL Showcase
Post by: ty4er on August 04, 2013, 09:28:51 AM
if you want to, you could cut a bit out of the chassis and put the perm in that gap

that's a pretty cool shell spinner, you might want to change that skirt for something that look a bit sturdier though (look in urjak's showcase for a good example)
Title: Re: RedAce's DSL Showcase
Post by: RedAce on August 04, 2013, 09:41:08 AM
I'm well aware about that shell spinner he entered in Battlebots 7 and it's self righting mechinism, but i do think that the skirt my a little fragile, even if shell spinner goes nuts, I'll fix it later, as well as give my other irl bot some motor protection.
Title: Re: RedAce's DSL Showcase
Post by: RedAce on August 04, 2013, 12:16:40 PM
DP

Got the motor protection on

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/12439persistance3.png)

797.0
Srimech is now stronger and more 'havok stable'

I'm still working on that HW shell spinner, In the meantime, have a cruiserweight instead

I kinda like the Typhoon spikes, they remind me of a bull's horns or something, but the bot would look good either way.

If they were re-skinned to match the rest of the bot they would look pretty awesome.

VS looks pretty cool, although I think you would be better with a skin without decals. and a skin color that goes better with the bot's components.
Title: Re: RedAce's DSL Showcase
Post by: RedAce on August 05, 2013, 08:16:38 AM
Okay I admit, that bot skin was a little ugly, so I made a new skin

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/55459gyro2.png)

Also can anyone show me a diagram or something to help me make a greenwave style HS? I'm not sure how to do it.

Looks like a Team-Whyachi bot. It might risk being pinned in a corner by a fast rammer, though other than that it seems like a nice build.

Anyway, your latest bot reminds me of the old version of Brother of Whyachi.
And if it spins to slow, why not use a TMW3R2 (unless you are using it)

no

a 4mag would be enough, you dont really need the disk though (use a sideways multiextender or something similar)

Title: Re: RedAce's DSL Showcase
Post by: MassimoV on August 07, 2013, 12:38:08 PM
Nice. the small extender sticking up is a little weird though. Other than that, it's really good.
Title: Re: RedAce's DSL Showcase
Post by: ty4er on August 07, 2013, 12:42:25 PM
looks cool, you could try a lightning spike or something instead of that extender though


also try a poly extender instead of the multi, i forgot how crazy the mag's attachments are haha

For some reason, the bot reminds me of a beaver. That aside, you might want to replace the back-protection with some wheel guards.

I guess I didn't think of it that way, so I updated it.

I think the motor spins a hexplate, with the beaters around the edges, so the beaters are now in the middle, spinning around the motor.

That's what I thought as well. But I see no signs of a hex plate.

Actually, I was more inspired by MikeNCR.

But I have not built a SHW, period. So that's why I built this:

Anyway, two updates on some old bots.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/15194red.png)

Left: a rebuild on the MW flamethrower from a few pages back, thought the old one looked lazy honestly.
Right: Slight update of my first shell spinner, the srimech is off, armor is stronger, nothing else.

Walkers need to use a strong enough motor if want it to move, so servos would be a good choice for this kind of concept. (At least from my experience anyway.)

Using the TTD Gear, The bot can turn 180 degrees instead of using a servo that moves 360 degrees. The bot itself was supposed to act like Alcoholic Stepfather, Only with DSL2 parts.

I swear, I've seen something like that bot before. Nonetheless, maybe you could build a Roadblock-clone using the Multi-Extender collision glitch which allows it to go "half-outside" the chassis to make a front out of drum-sections and snapper-loading to make a saw or disc go through the round front?

It may be an idea, for looks, to turn those casters 90 degrees, as I imagine in real life the benefits from having a caster like that sideways for spinning would outweigh the negative of the increased resistance when moving forward. But that's purely superficial :) Looks pretty awesome otherwise, just something that bugged me.

Why tone it down? Isn't plastic 5 a little weak armor for this bot or am I missing something?

Edit: Fixed the armor typo.

You were wanting a stronger motor, were you not?
Also, Pl5 is one of the best armour choices due to the light weight and good durability.

Well I got what I was going for, It works like biohazard and it's strong. I think judge bursts are too powerful for this thing, I haven't tested it yet.

Also, what tournament are you referring to?

Ah. Judge bursts might be like Ziggy, like a flipper.

And I wasn't referring to any tournament, I just wasn't sure if it was going to be competitive or just a for fun sort of thing.

Here's what you do.

Figure out some way to make the weapons on your shell spinner in an original way. Other spinners have trouble with this problem, but they're left open to creativity since they don't encompass the entire vehicle.

You have a lot of stuff to mess with, take a generic shell spinner and just go nuts dude

Well, I made a 14-wheeled SHW in the past after stretching the chassis length to as far as it would go, and using Micro Wheels on the T64 motors. However, using larger wheels on a smaller chassis is quite a push, which probably explains why Nar's New Cruelty rep from a few years ago only had 6 wheels.

the only real problem is that the weapon is long and unwieldy. the axle doesn't even add anything to the robots aesthetics, so i would just drop it and put everything on an ME instead of messing with an AGOD'd axle.

You'll have enough weight for at least something across them, and the pole spikes look out of place right now.

Also, having researched The Matador (which I'm still assuming it's a successor to, as you didn't correct me), while it got completely trashed against M.O.E, it came back and got out of it's match with Warhead fairly unscathed. Certainly it was still moving after the only real big hit, so I think I would have to reject it.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/65492unfinishedrobot.png)

The problem are the hammers. No matter what motor I try to use for them, they still don't swing like they should. The E-tek-Drive LX motor would probably be the best one for this, but there's no room for it at all. What should I use?

Right now it's using the mag drive LX motors, which isn't strong enough. I've also tried the npc fasts and the diablomotor, and it still doesn't swing as fast as would like it to. What other motors would work in the space between the drive?

I believe Alex used the regular mags instead of the LX motors. Maybe that's it. Don't know why, but that may be the case. I'll try it when I get the chance.

Best example I can get

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/15069trebuchet.img_-300x225.jpg)

The system is, because there is power swinging the weapon as well as the weight pulling down the weapon has a stronger force when it rotates

It usually takes make around 30 minutes to skin a bot, but it depends on what you're skinning and how you're gonna skin it.

The tornado warning that was around me gave me the idea to name the bot.

Anyone know how to get the Whyachi bars on like YU812 in the DSL 2.1 pack? I'm having trouble trying to attach it like that on this bot.
Title: Re: RedAce's DSL Showcase
Post by: Badnik96 on May 12, 2014, 08:09:12 PM
I think the whyachi bars need either BFE or careful trial and error. Probably the former.

An older bot with a newer skin that I'm kinda happy with how it turned out:

Post by: RedAce on May 18, 2014, 07:55:44 PM
After watching it's performance in Powers of Three, I wasn't too happy with Cold Front's performance. So I sort of updated it to fix a few of the flaws it had.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/44427coldfrontupdate.png)

Besides the new skin, It now has a new drive system where it drives about as fast with 2WD powered by NPCF's opposed to 4WD with TWMR3's which gave me weight for the stronger armor to last a little longer in battle. I also fixed the Explosion acrobatics issue with a beater bar on the flipper. Only flaw I can't fix though is that it can't drive straight for some reason. I'm not really competitive when it comes to tournaments, but I felt it kind of needed the update. Did you like the old version though?

Also I made a similar designed HW:

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/34063subzero.png)

I feel pretty good about how it turned out.

it's not a bog-standard since it has a static spinner to take advantage of spikeball mode (which is admittedly cheap and kinda crawler-gay)

Both of them look pretty swaggin'. I'd smalled the chassis on the SS and put more weapons on, though - flails don't really matter with BW's and AW's, it's mostly about the weapon weight.

flails don't really matter with BW's and AW's

Urjak and 123 would like to disagree. Really depends on the type of shell spinner you want.

At BW, I think you go either full glass cannon and make a CF extender shell or don't go with flails at all.

At BW, I think you go either full glass cannon and make a CF extender shell or don't go with flails at all.
Actually, I do remember Urjak using CF extenders with flails just for the AW.

I probably will rebuild my BW to get a few extra flails.
I think I got 6 flail, 3 static at best. Though that might be overkill.

There's another multiextender not visible in battles that if you edit the chassis height high to where you can rise the multiextender, attach it, then edit the chassis back to a height where you can attach the blade with the motor on.

Left: Depending on which way you turn it, it works as well as a dull pencil or a glass cannon. Why? If it spins clockwise, the CF extenders would be very exposed and if it spins counter-clockwise, the damage dealt is small.
Right:Obvious Clone is Obvious. It's also very weak with Alu 1 armor.

Both use the same chassis if it wasn't clear enough.
Title: Re: RedAce's DSL Network
Post by: The Ounce on March 08, 2015, 03:10:24 AM
Maybe something you can try for the SnS is to make the hammers perpendicular to the motors by attaching the outer CF extenders to the side APs of the inner CFs.  Then wire the robot to spin so the ends of the hammers hit first.  When I tried this on V.M. Worker, it seemed to cause more damage than when it hit with the broadside of the hammers.

Not sure about the rammer.  If I remember correctly, Erebus had trouble driving straight because of the weird NPC collision meshes.  I don't know if yours has the same problem, but apart from that it looks okay...

and yes, #bringbackclashcubes
Title: Re: RedAce's DSL Network
Post by: RedAce on March 15, 2015, 11:45:07 AM
I tried using polycarbs, but they didn't work well with the mesh of the NPCs or just didn't work the way I wanted it to.


But anyway, LW:

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/33606scapanorhynchus.png)

I originally had it with a skirt stabilizer and LDS for weapons, but it sucked. So I swapped them out for razors and it fights much better, and to top it all off, no wedge AGOD. I think I got something up my sleeve with handling this wedge AGOD crap now.
There needs to be a DSL-S LW tourney now.
Edit: Oops forgot about the razors there. I think they should be fine realistic wise since they could behave like gears and AtaxiA did the same thing.

Yeah, they aren't good as I thought. SpyGuy had it's weapon motor on the panel that is right in front of it. What the hell was I thinking? The motor on Rolo was also exposed since the Alu skirt doesn't reach  out to actually protect it.

Still a pretty ironic duo itself. That's what I like about these two bots.

Also, I tried to improve Rolo and this is what I got:

This was my original bot for that challenge against Thrackerzod, but yugitom had issues with havok. No idea what actually is happening with it during the match since I never got those issues. Maybe it was Thrackerzod's bot and it caused Quark syndrome where it faced a certain bot and it is a havok bomb. Either way, the result was a Bloody Mess.

it's not like:
-it's an ultra generic design
-you are not the one to pioneer the design
-most DSL-S builders have a HS like that in their botlab

it's like if now someone is going to build a DSL MW popup with 2 snappers, 6 razors, 2 NPC fasts, 2 hypnos and 2 metal hinge wedges and after that call every other generic mw dsl popup a clone of their special snowflake popup.

if someone has to claim the right of the design it must either be me, Reier, R0B0SH4RK or maybe urjak. Probably robo due to Enfilad3.

Thanks for the positive feedback guys. :dumb)

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/53364flashflood.png)

This was originally was meant for FullImpact, but I never got around to finishing it, and it didn't look very interesting. Later down, I turned it into a SHW bot because those are rare to see unless you are dedicated to building them. Yeah, yeah, it's generic, but that's a big issue with Tri-bar (or in this case, Quad-bar) spinners, it's hard to make them look cool. So I tried to make it one step further with those horizontal stabalizer bars you see there on real life bar spinners like this one. (https://youtu.be/iBcF5vA3VTk?t=40s) I really don't see them often, so I took a whack at it for some originality. And I am seeing why. They are hard to attach if you really want to get artistic. More specifically, in my case anyway, covering the weapon with DSL bars to make it cool cool. Problem is though, they are a massive pain in the ass to attach compared to everything else in here, and I had to settle for sledgehammers since I needed weight.

So overall, I'm giving myself a B- since construction looks passable and the skin looks nice, but the execution, to me anyway, is rough and it's not very original.
Title: Re: RedAce's DSL Network

Title: Re: RedAce's DSL Network
Post by: Lemonism on May 30, 2015, 04:29:08 PM
I really like this spinner, the frame fits together really nicely, especially for DSL2 and not 3.

On the previous bot, I think the design is very cool but I feel the skin lacks a consistent enough theme. I think it would be better if you stuck with either the blue all the way around, or removed the pink at the top and replaced that and the metal front with a more HD metal texture, maybe with a blue paint/medical decal overlay on top. What program are you using, btw?

I'm not really used to some mechanics just yet, even with my Photoshop skills, so I'm still learning. I started off with this new bot, which unfortunately, isn't very original.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/23680harvester.png)

I know the flag lines aren't lined up, but I realized while skinning it, I made the chassis with uneven slopes and harder for me to make it lined up perfectly, and I don't feel like rebuilding and skinning this all over again to fix that.

If you want to line things up, before you export a skin you can mark points on each side with decals.
Huh, I haven't thought of that, especially since I've done a very similar style for the slot decals.

Also, cheers for your positive comments guys. :smile:

How did you get the Backlash disk to go through your body? When I try it, it always says that it can't go through the body.

Holy carp.  I'm actually posting here.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/55212haimarty.png)

Plastic 5, 9 ants, (which I didn't notice until now as a matter of a fact), NPC Fasts, 4 razors per BSG, and slight AGOD in the wedges.

Yep, some of you might recognize this bot.  It's that bot I used for that challenge against Marty.  I wanted to accomplish three things with this.

1. Create a side popup since they aren't as common.
2. Make a hybrid.
3. Not recycle an old bot for the challenge.

So yeah, I took the cowards way out by making something overpowered as all hell.  Sue me.

Edit: Oh yeah.  I need ideas for my Throwback (https://gametechmods.com/forums/index.php?topic=18060.0) tourney.  Throw them out there.

Have you tried a setup where the bsg's are reversed so it pops the opposite way to see if it's more effective damage wise?

Is this meant to be intentionally inefficient or just look old school? If the latter, get rid of the plastic skirts at the front; you only want to attach skirts to the middle connector otherwise your wedges go from real good to real terrible.

That doesn't necessarily answer my question. Looking old school doesn't necessarily mean he intentionally chose a worse wedge option.

Yes that was the point.  You must not have been looking at the active tournaments these days, because I essentially made that a rule where at least two APs of the Skirt hinge must be used.

5 1/2 months since I've built something IRL?  Well then.

Not a very amazing bot, but I thought I could make a bot that uses the cool, but very situational Mortis.py.

Title: Re: RedAce's DSL Network
Post by: RedAce on December 19, 2015, 09:44:54 AM
Well, I'm not exactly sure if there ever will be a BB11 anytime soon, but screw it.  I'll showcase my possible fleet:

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/63333fullyellowjacket.png)

LW - Full Yellow Jacket

I tried.  I really tried my damn near hardest to create something innovative for this, but I just couldn't get anything to work the way I wanted to in my head, so I might as well just go with this.  It's got weak armor if that means anything.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/77094bombshell.png)

MW - Bombshell

A 360 Degree MW Shuffler thing.  I can't remember the exact weight of how much is used for the shuffler of this one, but if memory serves me right, it's about 416 kg, so it should be good.  It's got Titanium Skirts re-skinned to match the chassis skin.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/97852fatalerror.png)

HW - Fatal ERROR

This one was somewhat inspired by how Ill Tempered Mutt uses interchangeable weaponry from a Drum and a Wedge with flamethrowers.  I couldn't find any other use for the weight so I used a flamethrower.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/83409superbreakerbros.png)

SHW - Super Breaker Bros.

A multibot that uses two different skins, but other than that, they're exactly the same.  I might re-skin those support bars to match the respective colors.

Again, if BB11 or whatever gets off the ground at some point, then I'll give it my all for making badass designs for this one.  Also, I got a bot idea for DSL3 Finale, so stay tuned.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/16090catfromchesire.png)

My original intent was to have the big smile that's on the top on the wedge, but since the component has some weird overlaying issues, it looked awkward and it didn't even look good.  It's disappointing, but I wanna try and fix it before I send it.  I do hope you enjoy it regardless.

Also, thanks for all those votes for me in the GTM Awards guys.  I do appreciate this guys.

I guess I'm a bit late to the DSL 2.2 party.  I blame my first day back at college and a laptop that needs replacing.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/44424fallout.png)

This is one of the first designs I wanted to make when DSL 2.2.  It's reminiscent of Infection from the Robot Wars mod in case you couldn't tell (Which is probably one of my favorite bots in the mod by the way).  I also wanted to test out the new Nightmare teeth included.  The only downside from this is the AGOD on the teeth.  Which is a shame, but I haven't tested this yet, so it might not affect it that much.

As usual, I hope you like it.  Honestly, I have strongly polarizing feelings from the end result of this one.

I know, blatant Splinter clone.  I admit it, it isn't my best work, but I just felt drained from RA2 when building it, so I just threw it together for the sake of throwing it together.  I haven't tested this in combat yet, but it's fun to drive around.

Also...

I literally just finished building it, so I have no idea how well it can fight.  I wanted to go with something a little more unorthodox for my bot.  I could also try to make a 8645T style bot, but this feels a little more original.  Might think it through before sending it.

You could also just open the compiled .gmf in notepad++ and do a ctrl+f for the texture filename and then replace it, which seems to work fine for me.

It's one of the few things you can edit in a compiled .gmf. Just make sure what you change the filename to is the same amount of characters as the original filename.

Oh yeah.   I use Notepad++ as well for this stuff.  I haven't tried that with the .gmf file still compiled, but either way, I just feel reskinning components makes building good IRL bots a massive PitA.  I might fix that later when I have some time.

Here's half of the SpikeHeads that I made for NAR AI 3.1.  I don't think they are fully ready as I think they could use some improvements on how to make it better.  I'm also trying to follow suit with the original theme and what Naryar is looking for based on what needs to be used.  Like the Irons for example.  I don't know for sure if they are good, but that's what he is looking for.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/455580mad.png)

I took some notes from Martbell that did rather well in Ironbot Jr. since it was a simple design and something I know I can make with Irons easily.  It doesn't drive around like a madman since it only uses mag drive, but that keeps a balance between speed and weaponry for this.  I might replace the drive so it can go faster and help fix the theme, but I'll see if it works first.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/968761insanity.png)

I made Insanity a Popup since that's what it was in the original NAR AI packs, so I decided to keep the trend going.  I had a whole bunch of ways to make the weapon, but I couldn't find ways to use the weight without making the weapon or anything else suffer.  So, I might still work on this one.

For Big Metal Friend, I decided to try Reier's route (https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/41870repressivetolerance.png) of making it a vertical and horizontal hammer hybrid.  I know there's empty space, and I know that's not a very good thing, but I kept it so I can have the drive and side hammer JX motors work from where they are.

I hate to sound like a newbie who has no idea what the hell he is doing in DSL 2.2, but to be frank, I have no idea what the hell I'm doing in DSL 2.2.  So, if there is improvements needed, please say so.

MAD is a solid build. I am slightly worried about half the weaponry touching the ground and hence dealing no damage.

Insanity was a weaponed flipper, I think, but why not *shrug*. it's not every time you see a popup with irons.

BMF I am worried about the reach. Also the bot is rather short lengthwise and all that weight backwards (the hammers) may just ruin the wedge, but maybe that's the deadfall of the design.

Otherwise some solid work here ! They all good, I think.

Post by: Bobyasianboy on March 15, 2016, 12:17:42 PM
They're all great work as usual. I agree with Nar about mad though. I don't see the irons on the sides doing all that much and you could probably put something there that reaches down just below the irons instead, so that the bottom row are doing damage.
Title: Re: RedAce's DSL Network
Post by: Naryar on March 15, 2016, 02:04:48 PM
nah, it's just that weapons that touch the ground magically lose all their damaging power and, IIRC, only do damage when they are attacked by other weapons.

Post by: RedAce on March 17, 2016, 09:53:43 AM
Thanks for the suggestions guys.  I tried to rotate MAD's weapons so that they are all facing the same direction, but then the bot would tip to far forward and then become useless.  I got Big Metal Friend longer weapons by 20cm and a back stabilizer at the cost of weaker wedges.

Now for the rest:

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/464203absurdity.png)

This was gonna be an SnS that was also 1WD, but I couldn't get it working since it was a havok bomb, and 1WD isn't all that cool honestly.
inb4 sm is triggered

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/419444feeblemind.png)

Yeah.  After seeing that I have more bots that use iron spikes than bots that use hammers, I might update this to have a hammer which might also help with combat.  Pretty nimble overall.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/139405insaneasylum.png)

Really hoping that the wedges are good on this one, otherwise I spent an hour on making a SHW Hybrid for nothing.  Also, weird thing to note, but this bot taught me that the backdrop is annoying as an anti-ballast.  It has an attachment point way out of the zone which hinders the attachments.  So, if you do want to use it for an anti-ballast, make sure you attach it far away from the bot so it's out of reach.

But yeah.  I might fix these up before sending them.

Probably the wide wedge base is the least authentic part about this, but I think the original NAR AI version had something similar to this, so I think it's alright.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/8748101samurai.png)

I had no idea if I wanted to make Samurai a hammer or a popup, but since the original was a hammer, I decided to go with the former.  Probably gonna be rebuilt since the trapping device seems unneeded with HS and shell spinners probably nerfed without razors.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/6267302shogun.png)

ermagahd empty space.  I kinda like how this one turned out otherwise.  Not sure if spike strips are a good alternative for popups, but those things have pretty good reach for what they are, so I guess?

I'll get the second half built probably over the weekend, but what are your thoughts on these?

I like them all.

Shogun having spike strips instead of samurai swords as popup weapons irks me, but it's still cool.

Ronin flags would be neat but you can instead put more stuff on the skin. Like more samurai clan insignas.
Title: Re: RedAce's DSL Network
Post by: RedAce on March 25, 2016, 02:51:18 PM
Update to Shogun and two more bots for Team Dragon.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/2273702shogunupdate.png)

Replaced the spike strips for samurai swords, and got the ronin flags on there since I felt Shogun was incomplete without them.  The downgrades was the armor (from 5mm Steel to 5mm Titanium I think) and shorter wedges.  It was done to help it self right.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/5406603shuriken.png)

When building this one, I noticed that the carbon fiber extenders now have an attachment point on the flat ends, which helped a lot with this one.  Rule of seven kinda got in the way, but it's pretty good I think.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/5695904katana.png)

Call it a BW Samurai with a slightly weaker weapon motor and low battery life.  Other than that, it's alright.  It can self right very efficiently and, it's quite maneuverable.

I'll probably send these tonight before I forget again.
Title: Re: RedAce's DSL Network
Post by: Naryar on March 25, 2016, 03:33:08 PM
cambered wheels = sparkey approves

also neat. We'll have quite a bit of AW's and BW's in this official release... more than the original, I see.

Shogun is good ! 5mm titanium is more than sufficient on a design like this.

what are your ideas on the last bot ?

i know i'm super late with this one, but what direction are the vertical spinners on insane asylum spinning? I would recommend having them spin the opposite direction from most, since that way they'll keep bots on your juggling disks better and be more likely to chop extenders

This is a remake of an old IRL bot that I made way back in 2013 (this one (https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/30229blackcat.png)) and I decided to rebuild it with DSL 2.2 parts.  I know the eyes look a bit off, so I might fix that later.  I hope you enjoy the result with this.

Anyway, Now for a totally original bot that I have made with my own style and definitely not stolen or inspired by anything.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/77594slayingmantis.png)

It's pretty alright.  Slow as hell, as its only using single mags for drive, but it's still pretty good.  If you are wondering about the version on the right, then that is for taking on spinners and the Beta is actually geared opposed to the normal version.  This way it can catch bots inside and push them around.  Not sure how I will AI it though.  Probably with whatever .py TDD uses might do it, but I ain't quite sure.

Sure.  Have at it.

https://gametechmods.com/Robot_Exchange/DSL_HW/RedAce_Slaying%20Mantis%20(Wedge).bot

Both versions are here.  And I wanted to make a wedge version to fend off the powerful spinners, as you may have guessed.

So, I guess with BOTM done, I might as well post what I entered.

(https://gametechmods.com/TournamentFiles/botm/2016/05/RedAce_Cobalt_Crusader.png)

I said that this would be my last entrant, so I thought I would go out with a bang with an artbot with some witty portions.  Shame it only got two votes, which would normally be a bad thing, but considering the popular entrants were a compact side hammer made by S_M and a Steg-o-Saurus style bot by Thyrus (I assume), I don't feel robbed.  Disappointed in myself for not making at the same caliber, but I'm not salty, oddly enough.  I think I've lost my touch with making cool BOTM entrants, but I'm certainly done with BOTM... at least for a very long time.  Who know, I might give it another crack one day.

Also, if anyone has any cool ideas for what I should build in DSL 2.2 next, then tell me.  I'm out of ideas again.

Post by: RedAce on May 03, 2016, 06:59:54 PM
As much as I would love to, I seem to have lost my touch in making good splashes with interesting designs.  It certainly is a difficult task to find the perfect balance between the two, and those superior entrants really make me say "Why didn't I think of this when making my entrant?" don't help.  It makes me feel that about 2 hours of work was put for nothing and it's tough to get that momentum back.  It's also like a promise thing that I said when the thread went up.  You don't break promises.  :P
Title: Re: RedAce's DSL Network
Post by: yugitom on May 03, 2016, 07:08:30 PM
Fair enough, I suppose. I just hope you get the spark back when RA3 comes out and we're doing BOTM's in that. Even though you may not win all the time, you add to the variety of good splashes/bots and you are consistently good.

Here, have some bots.  Enjoy their genericness:

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/40986KorpseKiller.png)

MW Last Rites with a Mechavore disc.  This thing just eats anything in it's way and is ridiculously fast, and this thing is running on NPC norms.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/65330Tri-Fecta.png)

SHW Whyachi Walker thing.  I'm only assuming SHW walkers are allowed to weigh 1600 kg with at least 400 kg used for the walking mechanism from Battlebots rules.  I mean, when's the next time there's gonna be an IRL DSL SHW tournament anyway?  It's probably the only time it's going to be used for it anyway, if one happens that is.  It's fun to mess with, and it's kinda quick... for a walker anyway.

Welp, I got a bunch of bots to put here.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/76959barrackpore.png)

DSL bot for Trios of Terror II.  It's really meant to be a defensive trooper to score points rather than kill.  I probably didn't need the wedge edges for the back, but I had some weight, and I couldn't think of much else to use it on.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/1906stainsoftime.png)

Cauldron 2 Entry.  I kinda wanted to be unorthodox and make a poker/juggler hybrid.  From what I've tested on, and by that, I mean my Frenemy Rumble entry and my Big Metal Friend for NAR AI, it's not bad.  Normals kinda hurt it unfortunately.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/39834yourarmisyourwife.png)

Cookie for whoever can guess where I got the name.  This thing is kinda slow spinning, but it does better when not moving with melty brain.  Sadly, when I was AI'ing it, I couldn't get this to turn counter clockwise with FBS_2.  So I had to use FBSPlus, which makes this spin slower, and that is not fun.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/48725chemicalwarfare.png)

Generic IRL Bar Spinner.  Because why not?  I wasn't quite sure what to do with decals with the skin, so I just slapped a name and symbol on the top and thought it was fine.  Might add more to it in the future.  Framework could've been better, but I was kinda short on weight, and I didn't want to give up weaker chassis armor.

First and last bots are my favorites
I do feel like the bar spinner would look nicer if you used the green of the text in place of the cyan of the metal, and went for black text. That's just my preference, the actual layout of the skin and the construction of the robot I really like.
Title: Re: RedAce's DSL Network
Post by: RedAce on July 09, 2016, 09:21:30 AM
I got a bit of explanation for this one.  I've been rebuilding every bot from the Stock AI to be IRL.  I wanted to do because I remembered I built the High Voltage team for Jonzu's community pack that has had very slow development.  I didn't want them to go to waste, and I would like a little more IRL opponents to fight against other than the replicas in DSL 2.2.  So, if everyone is cool with it, I'll release all the bots I've built below as an AI pack.


Some I'm not as happy as I would like to be, so I might rebuild a couple before I release them.  If anyone wants a closer look at a bot or team, then let me know.

Been about a month, so here's a bot dump.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/42011wt2_whiteknight.png)

Wheely Tag 2 Entrant.  Meant for killing things and is also focused on defense.  Pretty slow, but it's alright overall.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/18028cc_edge.png)
(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/85738cc_charizarding.png)

Clone Clash entrants.  The VS kinda sucked due to an AI change from Omni to VertSpinner (thanks Badger) and the hammer had a hard time due to the small and extremely precise smartzone, along with Popup.py beingvery picky, I guess.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/40668sc2_son.png)
(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/30423sc2_daughter.png)

Scrapheap Challenge 2 Entrants.  Nothing too special, but the wedges are alright, so they should be causing some good damage if it gets under anything.  Neither can self-right reliably, so that's gonna be a problem.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/25545cyanide.png)

Kinda a fragile hammer/rammer hybrid, but it's good at trapping anything that gets in.  Also has a tough time self-righting.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/19250flashbacks.png)

Wanted to make an invertible VS after seeing EBN perform so poorly in Clone Clash thanks to the AI, so I'd AI this thing with Drum.py (or whatever modern .py works better) so it would spin upwards on either side.  It's really good at flipping itself over, but that makes the armor on it's back, top, and bottom take an equal amount of punishment and probably break less, so I guess that's good.

Also, 4/7 of the names are based off Cards Against Humanity cards, so I'm sorry in advance.

I know it's the retro splash, but I like this style more anyway.

And if you just want to see the bot without the text in the way:

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/3851agentorangebot.png)

I mean, it's essentially a Witch Doctor/Brutus style bot, but I just wanted to find a use for the Minion disc... and see if it was as overpowered as everyone says it is.  I know I'm late to the party and I even wanted to make a house robot, but it seems all the slots are filled.  Might make one on Saturday and see if I can do anything with it in the end.

Do not post multiple bots in one post. This means that if you post a single bot, we will give you detailed advice on how to improve it. Posting numerous bots in one post leads to people not giving you good advice and generally making small comments on 1 of them.
Eh, this showcase was on page two, so I need to make up for that somehow.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/427WCR_Blizzard.png)

First Wild Card Rally entrant.  I thought this would do much better than my other one, but it still did pretty good regardless.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/34286WCR_GA.png)

The other WCR entrant.  I was pretty proud that it made it far, and that the deflector form worked better than I imagined.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/73756WDKYMYS_RAM.png)

The Survival tournament entrants.  I was somewhat proud of this team, except for the contrast of the weapon on the MW.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/2133DB_DoubleO.png)

Death Battle (which is nowhere near as good as it was before just pointing that out oh sorry i went off on a tangent) Entrant.  13 Black/RotatoR style bot.  Probably could've spent more time on the logo and make it feel more creative, but I didn't have an idea, nor the time to mess around to the point where I will miss out to something less interesting or tryhard-ish.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/97576AO_disc.png)

Nothing too special here.  Just a skin update on Agent Orange which you will see in GTMRW.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/86731fireballproto.png)

Just some bot I had lying around.  Nothing special.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/34325bonesraiden.png)

Another bot I had lying around.  I guess it works since Halloween is close by.

I'll admit, I've lost my touch.  Good thing I plan on retiring from bot building by the end of the year, cause I'll probably lose every bit of creativity as I lose free time.

Sorry about that :evilsmile: You got your revenge in the third-place playoff though.

The other bots all look pretty good as well. The one with the flame decals reminds me of Witch Doctor. I should try making a double-sided HS like your Death Battle entry (I already made a double-sided flipper so why not). Also something something SKELETON WAR.

It's been a while, so I'll post some Crusierweights to get back in the swing of things with IRL.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/55941BloodCravings.png)

Tornado style bot with a thresher drum and an anti-spinner drum and motor burning flamethrower.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/81098SunBurst.png)

Stinger-esque that flips it's entire wedge and brace at the same time.  It's a lot of fun to play around with.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/34344Zeta.png)

Beta clone.  Kinda messy, but I had trouble aligning the parts to be perfectly matched.  I'll probably skin the hammer to have a cool logo later as I gotta go to bed right now.

I'll probably keep going to get that spark going again and--

Good thing I plan on retiring from bot building by the end of the year

I'm a dirty liar.  You should know that by now.  Though I don't think I'll be getting myself back into competitive Stock building or anything among the lines of things like that.

Been building even more IRL crusierweights in some of my free time, and this one I feel more proud of showcasing than others.  For various reasons.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/25641RPM_and_K9.png)

A Witch Doctor & Shaman style crusierweight and the combined weight is around 600 KG.  The left is the main bot.  It has a style that is closer to Brutus, with the wedges and wheels.  Reskinned the Mini Minion disc since the original is pretty ugly as hell.  The right is the distraction bot.  Has a flamethrower inside and that's about it.

Probably gonna start working on my BittyBots and Annihilation Nation entrants soon.

Bot dump since this got onto page two again.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/15027BittyBots.png)

This is Inferno and Tsunami respectively.  My BittyBots entries.  I approached this with Inferno being a rear-hinged flipper, and Tsunami being a front-hinged one.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/69435Spearhead.png)

Gee, Spearhead isn't a clone of absolutely anything at all.  I don't know what you're talking about.  Anyway, it's my first Annihilation Nation entrant and I mostly did this since the battles would be in a rumble format.  I wanted to make a third form, but I didn't have any ways to make this work with the design without making it look dumb.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/77172Ares.png)

Here's my secondary entrant for Annihilation Nation.  This is actually a remake of a bot that is about three years old at this point (this one) (https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/91584mwvs.png). I wanted to get the weapon style like it had on the original, but I didn't have enough weight for it without making with weapon spin slower.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/92384SwissArmyBot.png)

Man, I'm just full of original ideas aren't I?  Nothing special otherwise.  I should probably go back and skin some slots for each weapon.  Especially the flipper as the fake pistons look awkward as it is.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/13077Duality.png)

I'm actually kind of proud of how clean this turned out, with the exception of one weapon motor sticking out a little too much, but other than that, I think it looks pretty good.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/75994Error.png)

I'm pretty sure this has been done before somewhere, but I can't quite put my finger on it.  If it has, I just hope it wasn't done by someone with a name change.

The last two need better names.  I'm open to suggestions.

LvD 2 entrants.  Thought the paint theme matched well enough, so... yeah.

(https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/83389angerissues.png)

A CW and HW with a very similar theme.  Not sure if there's an IRL CW and HW tournament going on soon beyond my knowledge, so this might be the ones I'd enter if one happens to arrive.

Meh, HS with an interchangeable Cobalt & a Carbide style blade.  Cause that's a thing I guess.

Post by: RedAce on December 25, 2017, 12:10:59 PM
I was looking back at one of my AI packs known as "DSL Reborn AI" where I basically remade the original Stock AI from DSL into a more IRL fashion.  It was actually rather alright as it allowed more options for IRL buiders other than the replicas which use custom parts that aren't quite allowed in most IRL tournaments.  I was tempted to remake some of them using the new IRL parts by DSC, but I felt that would be rather tedious and in the end, it probably would require another separate download ahead of time.  I looked back and feel I should fix some of the AI errors that harmed them, like Sentinel is perfectly capable of being invertible, but I used Flipper2.py which doesn't work, so that will be fixed in the future.  But I also noticed that some bots I ignored at the time that, really weren't made with DSL 2.2 in mind.  So I decided to complete the other two teams to create a sense of consistency and make them feel like they belong.  I tried my hardest to make them IRL and at the same time, try to approach the style of the original design.

(https://i.imgur.com/TYxO3qQ.png)

First up was Gammaraze III.  Gammaraze was a rather fast and aggressive design, but at the cost of low damaging weaponry.  I mostly tried to approach this from the perspective of the third version rather than the first and second.  Fun to drive around and it's perfectly invertible

(https://i.imgur.com/keVchwX.png)

Topknot II is next in line.  An all-around attacker with no real strengths or weaknesses.  The quad-axe design wasn't exactly too approachable for an IRL design but I found a way to replicate the style as best as possible.  The good news is that I made the bot a turret-axe bot so it has the "all-around" features still in it's spirit.

(https://i.imgur.com/limciE7.png)

Some sacrifices needed to be made when I was creating ScootOrDie.  I doubt I would be able to make an IRL Poker/Hammer Hybrid.  I decided to approach the more IRL-esque perspective with the Hammer idea and create horns as an alternative to the poking mechanic.  In return I added a srimech since not a lot of bots in the pack really have one.

(https://i.imgur.com/TlcA4W0.png)
Aquarius 2 wasn't an easy one to make as you might first think.  I wasn't sure of the approach to go through with this one.  Aquarius was a nimble glass cannon and something that can pierce armor of you weren't careful.  Replicating that in an IRL style would be tough as I went through several redesigns.  The most complete previous design was a wammer/flammer thing with some horns, but it didn't fit the style and it didn't even look all that good.  Here, I decided to approach a Rammstein approach with one wedge instead of two.  The Vlad Spear was something I also wanted to use for this as I never usually see it.

(https://i.imgur.com/oNHef52.png)
I knew from the start that remaking these bots would be harder and harder to do, and I was afraid of how I was gonna approach Pon2n since it's a hover bot.  I don't think there is an IRL HW hovercraft as far as I'm aware.  So I didn't really go for that with this, but I did want to take the Pontoon approach with the propeller in the back and that Pontoon in RA1 didn't really fly in the air either.  I am rather proud of the outcome of this, but I didn't think there would be another alternative or idea with this one.

(https://i.imgur.com/5pGPUQh.png)
Last but not least: Triclops v2.0.  One of the hardest bots in RA1 and a rather dangerous threat in DSL.  I wanted to approach a style with both but mostly the DSL side due to creating multiple hammers would look weird for an IRL bot.  The tail in the back is to not only create the beast effect and also prevent the bot from jumping like crazy.

Now it may look complete, but I said two teams.  What's the other you may ask?

(https://i.imgur.com/d6SeLgC.png)
Yep.  It's the entire Arthrobotics team.  A team of two AW's and four BW's.  Most were all pretty IRL from the start and talking individual notes about each would just be less than a full sentence anyway, so there isn't much of a point with that.  I did update them to feel more in style with some parts of 2.2, so there's that.

I was planning on releasing them today, but I was rather packed in my week so it might be a bit tough, but AI'ing theoretically take too long to do, so I might be able to make it.  At the worst, it'll be delayed to the end of the year.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Post by: dragonsteincole on December 25, 2017, 12:37:28 PM
An excellent set of reps(?) of the original bots. Most fit the original intent well without going to far from being IRL. Only suggestion would beTopknot could possibly be redone as a turreted axe, to get closer to the original  "axes all around" idea of the original.and I can agree with not using the IRL Pack parts. I do have an idea but the end result may not equal the work put in to implement it.

I do love the AW and BW refreshes too. I have a lot of difficulty making the lighter weightclasses so i'll be eager to look around and see how these have been done.

Great work all around though.  :smile:

Hot damn, I haven't posted here in a good month, and yet, I have built a few things to show off that people might've seen already, but not everyone is on the GTM Discord, so might as well get these archived in here.

(https://i.imgur.com/ieiTzrQ.png)

One of the new bots I made for the Orc Wars 2 Side Events.  Kinda wanted a theme where the opponents would be caught in sights and would attack accordingly.  Other than that, nothing you haven't seen before really.  It would be impressive if I did get the entire body to have the rotation lights on an actual radar, but that would probably look awkward in RA2 anyway.

(https://i.imgur.com/wjsH8pB.png)

The thought process behind this?  Well, I wanted to make an homage to FireStorm, one of, if not, my all time favorite machines from Robot Wars.  So I decided to create SnowStorm for that reason, with enough changes to make sure it wasn't a carbon copy.  Well, in OW2, some of the big problems it had was it's own weapon strength and lack of vital organs and skin, to put it simply.  SnowStorm was great at puching and flipping things around, but if it gets turned over, then it's just a melting cause at that point.  Also the batteries were kinda limited and that's something I never thought would happen anyway.  So I went in a thought process of T-Minus.  Sacrifice some offense and raise the overall defense.  And thus, SnowStorm II.  While the wheels are much more exposed, it has some discs to protect it at least, and not many spinners tore off the sides if I recall seeing it's performance correctly, so yeah.  Should be much better for next time.

(https://i.imgur.com/u3aaEFY.png)

I don't even think I showed off my first Deathmatch entrant, did I?  Well, now I have.  Nothing too crazy with this Arena Cleaner/The Cat amalgamation thing.  Although I did have some trouble AI'ing this since I wasn't sure how to use that AI export thing apanx made, and not just because my computer's virus protection really didn't like it.  Also, but I think I'm one of the very few people who actually made an original custom skin for their entrant.  I know that doesn't mean much, but it is interesting trivia nonetheless.

(https://i.imgur.com/kJgdZ2m.png)

I... wish I had more to say when I was making this one.  Although I think I just wanted to make a clean CW in the end, so I'm really hoping it came out as such to everyone.  It may look like it, but no.  The disc isn't clipping any wheels or inside parts in any way.  Even if this angle shot doesn't even make anyone think about that until I would mention it.  So... yeah.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  Also, uh... I guess the name came from an RW:AoD bot with the same name and weapon setup?  Yeah.  That's... a thing.  I guess.

Though this last bot, I do have some plans for.  What are they specifically?  Well, some may know... but I'll make it official later.

Still been kinda inactive (more for the Discord servers, but you know what I mean), cause I've been getting a lot of college priorities done and spent my fair share of time playing OneShot.  Which, if I can go slightly more off topic for more than I already have, is actually one of the best games I've ever played.  I went in knowing nothing, and after playing it, I absolutely adore pretty much everything about it.  Seriously, I really recommend you at least give it a shot.  Like, now.  Okay after you see what bots I made first.  There's a transition to go back on topic I guess.

So I guess now that Robogames 2 signups are now closed and to distract me from Deathmatch editing, I guess I can now show off what I did for that.  Well, it's not much, but I certainly hope they look alright for it.


So the idea behind this is that I went with a theme.  While it's kinda obvious, but I was looking at some Robogames 2017 fights when I was bored one day, and saw the Team Fast Electric Robot's highlight reel, and wanted to create a team idea with design being centered around mostly similar bots.  So yeah, didn't have nearly as much creativity unfortunately, but I just wanted to do something simple in case I didn't have time to do something stupid, and as a bonus, it scores for having a "Team" theme and not have random bot types from one builder to achieve more of an "IRL-esque" feel.  Ya know?

So onto discussing the actual bots:
AW: K4-ET: Taking a tad bit of notes from Tashic's Green Slash I think it was called, I had to try to squeeze a vertical saw on an AW it even with the slow flatmotor, it bounces.  Like, a lot.  Certainly gonna need a low range if this wants to do anything.
BW: Murphy: Basically K4-ET but with more blades, and If I remember, I think it uses the regular flatmotor, and it still has the bounce syndrome, so I guess it's just hereditary between the two.
LW: Bring it On! Wanna Go?  I certainly did.  This was the first bot I made for the team way back, but it had a more curved backside and now with a more box-like design to hopefully turn over less and have more hit points to tank some spinner hits.
MW: Greenback: This probably ain't gonna be scoring some cash in the competition, but damn it if it doesn't try.  Also the first one in the lineup to use four wheel drive so hopefully it earns some maneuverability.  Though if it gets flipped, it ain't coming back so easily.
CW: Agent Orange: Basically a rebuild from GTMRW, but with more defenses in the front and it can bounce back from a flip, if it isn't gonna get gut-ripped anyway.  It's also one in the family to use a Minion Disc, so watch out.
HW: Enroller: If the Minion Disc won't work, then I'll need to recruit some back-up.  Well, that would be the case if I knew how the hell I can use the SwitchDirWep.py anyway.  Well, it at least has some protection in the backside with the curved triangles to tank some hits when needed.
SHW: Blood Czar: What's this?  Two Minion Discs?  Well damn, there will certainly be blood from someone... if bots had blood anyway.  Well, it's a SHW, so it kinda draws a line with the weapon spam, but the weapon motors and weapon itself is like 28% of it's own weight, so I guess the rest makes up for it.

So yeah, I also wanted to make some awesome epic trailer to not only show these off, but also kinda promote RoboGames 2 in some way with my video editing skills.  As you can tell, that sure as hell didn't happen due to life issues again.  Hopefully my standards of bot building haven't looked like I downgraded once I show these things off.

Made two bots using the round treads because why not.

LW that has slightly more AGOd issues but it doesn't go insane, but unfortunately, it can't drive straight.  Like, at all.

(https://i.imgur.com/r61IwDL.png)

CW that is kinda a hybrid between Bite Force V1 and V2.  Doesn't have AGOD at all, but it still can't drive straight very well.

IRL CW that I've kinda had in the bot lab for a while, but just never got a chance to skin.  Mostly am proud of the curved backside.

(https://i.imgur.com/MNQNKD2.png)

IRL HW that is rather similar to another bot I had somewhere, though I've had the Megalomaniac bot somewhere in my files before, but I think the armor was kinda flimsy.

i swear i'll get to ai'ing those dm2 entrants i'm sorry

Anyway, In the meantime, I've been kinda getting myself working on Orc's Wars Extreme entrants.  I wanted to enter in every category, but that's a bit ambitious and I don't have that much time on my hands.  So I'll just show what I got, and it's quite a lot.

(https://i.imgur.com/RNgtDKf.png)

Going in to out, clockwise:

WildCard: No, It's not gonna be entering the Wildcard Warriors (assuming that it's only meant for people who haven't entered OW in the past anyway), but I do plan on entering this in the Rammer section for Weapon Wars, although it has an axle wedge and flamethrower, so I'll see if it qualifies in "Unique" category or not.
Yellow Jacket: I don't think I've shown this off yet, but it was meant for GTM Live, but we all know how that went down.  So I'll bring this out for the Clamps section for Weapon Wars and the New Blood as it's a newer bot.
Aggressive Negotiations: Upgraded it's drive, weapon and wedge to be faster stronger and tougher than it was in the past New Blood.  Seemed perfect for the Mayhem/Annihilator and the Royal Rumble.  This should be a much more fun bot to watch this time around. 
Heartbreaker: Buffed the armor and weapon so this can stand a stronger chance of fighting this time.  Planning to enter this for the Axes section for Weapon Wars and the Vengeance since this will be back and ready to rock this time around... and I can't figure out what other event to put it in.
Radar: Entered this at the end for OW2 for the special events, and it lost twice by getting stuck on its side discs which are apparently thick enough for it to do that.  Well, not much changed, but I did lower the battery power by a bit to get a small wedgelet to prevent the same problem to happen again.  This should do alright in the Hori-Spinner section for Weapon Wars and should be a good bot to fight in Tag Team Terror. (We still cool Hoppin?)
SnowStorm II: Basically nothing changed from when it was showcased, but it should do well in the Front-Hinged flipper section for Weapon Wars, and could do well in the Challenge Belt.

And the other three are for the Non-HW sections, so just gonna explain the ones from lightest to heaviest.

Red Scare: A lighter version of Red Menace, and it used to have a Piglet, but it probably wasn't all that good, so a flatmotor would suffice.
Red Menace: Last seen from RoboGames S1, and it's making a return with a newer blade and curved backside.  Totally not cloning Moros at this point.
XTRMNT: Inspired by K2 and K-Torze, but it's not really invertible and could do pretty poorly considering the overall speed.  Not much else to say the name was taken from a song with the same name.  Sooo, yeah.
REDRUM: Also inspired by Armagedrum a little bit along with the name.  Probably gonna go and edit the drum color to be red so the name applies.  *sigh*
Billionaire: Showed off this as well earlier, and I'm pretty proud of the curved backside so that's something.  Big flaw is that if it's back is wide and if a flipper turns it there, it's just done.
Valentine: With 6WD, a powerful spinner and a tough as nails wedge in the back, it could be one to love.

Thanks, and yeah.  It's for two reasons.  One; I get a little more creative with bots that are made with a chassis with skinning and overall structure.  Two; Full extenderbots just make my game sad.  Like it really doesn't want to work after three parts fly off of them.

Also, here's two more things:

(https://i.imgur.com/eIsKd12.png)

Update to WildCard as Orc was having issues with the fork version, and it's now a full on rammer.  Probably too late to send this version, but can't say I didn't try to make a fix.

(https://i.imgur.com/Rakonhi.png)

Wanted to make a CW version of Radar, and kinda turned out with this.  Wasn't sure what to call it, but it does pack quite a punch, so I guess the name is somewhat appropriate.

Small skin update for Nuclear Warfare.  Looks much cleaner and not as obnoxiously bright than the other one.

And two new bots.  Both CW's as well:

Afterthought-ish style bot.  Not a whole lot to say I guess.

How do you do fellow kids?  Made a tombklone but the weapon is a fidget spinner, and I just realized that I have to fix the name on the top.  Oops.

An idea you could do with the tombclone fidget spinner, is have each end on a flatmotor that spins the teeth independently.

I probably would've kept it transparent with the letters, but I lost the original file, so this will have to compromise.

Also two other bots I've had in my workshop that needed skins:

(https://i.imgur.com/tgmOKfP.png)

Sorta inspired by Vanquish.  Wasn't sure what to name it either so the generic name will have to do.

(https://i.imgur.com/xDHVGfB.png)

A bot that kinda is inspired by the new Bombshell.  Kinda a weird structure for the weaponry and all that, so that's why it looks kinda tall.

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.

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...

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

C A R  S T E E R I N G

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

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.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

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:

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.

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:

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

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:

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

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.

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.

Nature Wars 2 Possible Entrant:

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Got the idea from my near year and a half old Slaying Mantis (https://gametechmods.com/uploads/images/77594slayingmantis.png), and couldn't pass the idea up afterwards.  Yes, it's still a bot that inspired by Click's.  Just only came up with the idea to make it now because I can't capitalize on opportunities.  Looking back, probably should've taken some time to remake the logo and the arthrobotics insigna from the old.  Welp.

I guess a signature bot of mine now is getting the CW treatment:

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

A modular design in it's truest form.  Using both the variants of Aggressive Negotiations One & Two.  Taking a bot style that can take on flippers and spinners with the respective forms, so it certainly can hold up it's own.  Unsure how it works as of now, so maybe a possible future Deathmatch or an upcoming CW tourney could help me find out.

I guess it'll give me an excuse to try DSL 2.1 again so sure why not.
Okay I regret this decision.

Slightly cloned Geese's VS, but whatever.  I feel I'm not quite doing it right, but it beat the crap out of Fat Rat, and Wheel of Misfortune, so I guess it's alright, but feels weird.

Inspired by SawBlaze primarily.  It's not too bad from testing, but the arm loves to pick up momentum and is rather slow otherwise.  The typhoons are more meant to either be a backup weapon with momentum and/or trap bots in front to avoid bots getting too far over the wedge and into the saw arm.  I wasn't sure what to place without the bot kinda looking ugly.  I should also reskin the TazBot wheels and saw.  Right now it kinda looks out of place.

Still trying to mess around with extenderbots, and I'm gonna be honest, I still don't know what I'm doing.  Taking some notes from other builders and responses from discord, and I'm getting mixed answers.  Some said it's solid, others say not so much.  Probably not a good thing in the long run.
