Ok, so I'm thinking of getting back into DSL.

However, it seems there's been a lot of mods and changes made since my last time playing.

I haven't touched this game since my last post on here on March, 2019, and stuff has happened since.

What mods do I need to install for IRL building to resume?

Ok, got it, here's my first new bot:
 

This is Brad. He's a bit special, but I want ya'll to be nice to him. He's a WIP right now, I still need to get his skin and balancing issues fixed.
 

I plan on entering him into the upcoming Orc's Wars tournament. I believe he'll be well remembered, but not for being a good robot.
 

He's not the most serious of entries, but I've given up on winning tournaments. I'd much rather make robots that are actually MEMORABLE rather than generic try-hard IRL designs (like my old robots) that'll become forgotten champions.

What do ya'll think so far The main priority is that he's functional, has Deep Six's design, and has dashingly handsome looks.

The solid blue chassis with the decals isn't great-looking, but I'm liking the rest here.

Ok, so I ended up losing the file for Brad, so I made another possible entry for Orc's Wars 5's New Blood Tournament.

This is Mr.Twiddles. I still have yet to give him a proper skin, and I don't quite know what to make for him. All I know is that if any competitor embraces the spirit of IRL building more than anyone, it might just be this guy. Just look at that face.
 

(The tye-dye backdrop took away 400 kg, so just ignore the weight displayed in Botlab. The backdrop will be removed in competition.

What happens when HUGE and Axe Backwards have a child together?

You get...this thing, a torque-reacting HUGE.
 

His name is MAXSIVE!!! and I plant ot enter this shoddy prototype into a tournament soon. Just not sure what tournament would allow this thing.

Alright, time to do something possibly regrettable: The Cheatbot Component Challenge

I can't come up with any ideas right now, so I came up with this little game. You guys pick a SINGLE cheatbot2 replica component for me to seemlessly integrate into an IRL design. Whether it's, Wheely Big Cheese's flipper, Chaos 2's side panels, Tazbot's head, or even Sir Killalot's breastplate!

If it's a replica component that's NEVER used in IRL or DSL-S building due to how exclusive or broken these components are, I'm all in. The more interesting and niche the component, the better (I think)

To be more specific, I mean something like an IRL design that simply uses the Taz head or the Behemoth Junk extra or something. No super-specific details or instructions, just pic a random, niche component for replicas and have me apply it to whatever IRL design I can think of that will include it.

Any suggestions?

Here ya go! Introducing General CHONK!
 

He's a SHW with LOTS of empty space in the chassis, a pain in the ass paintjob, and a surprising lack of gyrodancing, despite the weight and power of his weaponry.

Said it in the discord but I really like this. The usage of the mechavore motor not just as a weapon motor but also to give the bot an interesting shape overall is really clever. I love when components get used for purposes that you wouldn't immediately think of.

Would be really neat if you could somehow replicate that shape in extenders or maybe OBJ it or something so you could have a version you can put in tournaments though as it's a really cool design and I think it would be neat to see it fight stuff.

If I had to pick out something you could improve I'd say maybe the rear end. I think using drums instead of the extender setup you have there would get you a cleaner look, assuming they fit properly.

All in all though nice work  :thumbup

I VERY much appreciate this caliber of constructive criticism. Thank you very much.

My next Cheatbot2 challenge bot uses the nightmare disc I ended up creating another SHW robot that uses it, I call it Aluminightmare:

I couldn't resist using the backlash discs, and the motorcycle wheels matched nicely as well.
 

It was kinda a pain in the ass making the custom extender chassis.

Pardon this next one, it was made in the midst of a family crisis. This is Iron Caterpillar, a robot designed to possess the razor claw component and NOT look like total ass. This was the outcome, a wannabe Ryu Kishin with a srimech that can (theoretically) double as a front hinged flipper.
 

 

 

 

Next, I think I'll try and see what can be done with the Tornado Frame. I have a pretty damn good idea for a robot that can creatively use that, but I'm unsure of I can execute the idea with all the life stress I'm currently going through.

My latest challenge (since the Tornado Frame one is on hold due to losing the original file) was to make a robot using the Minion Gas Engine. I ended up with this little guy, who I call The Daily Grind, since my life has been grinding like crazy lately.
