Redalert's rare DSL builds and WS
« on: December 17, 2018, 08:17:40 AM »
First bot- BW thwacker I threw together in under 3 minutes.
 

3 mm. Steel, but I could add 1 mm. Plastic, and add more irons if I had more time...

You've got more than enough battery life on that thwack bot. Drop it down to a single Battlepack. With that weight probably increase the extender on the weapon to Titanium and up the weapon count or a better weapon entirely. Overall, being a thwackbot it's super plain.

ohgod
That battery is not needed, one WP8 is more than enough for 2 motors
Iron spike is bad in DSL (generally most stock components are bad in DSL)
That bot with ai will not function as a thwacker, but an SnS (most tournaments ban SnS bots)

I wipe my ass, And slap my nuts

Extender weapon's titanium, I think.

I knew you would say what you said about the battery. What do the battlepacks look like?

...and yep, this Thwacker is gay. I'll see if I can add more weapons (and a tighter chassis.)

1. It's Alu. You can tell from the colouring
2. Battlepacks are the red 15kg ones.
3. Do that.

Thanks.
...and I can't tell armor coloring that well, but it's clear you can...
I'm thinking of trying a dual-weapon thwacker design...

Still too many batteries. You only need 1 battlepack. Dunno why you've downgraded the drive also.

I wanted more weight for weapons... BIG mistake. Version 3 under way...
I'll remove that extra battlepack and add even more power- probably E-TEKS.

Drive eteks are probably overkill for a BW, and would also require you to increase your chassis size massively which would likely take you overweight. NPC fasts are more than enough for such a light bot.

It's now a LW. NPC fasts sound like a great idea.

I signed up for Beetle Wars, so I need to develop a bot for that as well...

I'm getting the idea of adding irons for ramming weapons, but are they good? because I see them a lot in NAR AI and the DSL 2.1 AI packs.

2.1 AI packs aren't really the best guide for effectiveness since 2.2 rebalanced stuff pretty drastically.

Any ideas for weapons? The VLAD spears are good, I know that...

Why dont you actually post the pic of a bot instead of announcing it like that?
Most of the time youll doublepost

Don't know the difference between the two. It's DSL 2.3, so whatever one that is.
