increasing the resolution on the plow skins will make them look a lot better. falcon tank and wall smasher look pretty good but falcon tank could use more than one color and wall smasher could use a more consistent color scheme
Stuff I didn't suck at (from oldest to newest)

Gonna try to get monthly updates on the showcase out from now on, so here's this month's.

Earlier in the showcase, I posted an overhead saw blade called Circuit Breaker.  I've since done two complete rebuilds, the latest screenshot I have being the one here.  It is my entry into OW5 new blood and tbh I have no ideas for using the extra weight the crash patch gave me except more counterweights on the arm.
 


Thistle has received an upgrade for RR3, the wedgelets are now hinged and both configs have the same wedge.
 

 


On the subject of RR3, this is my planned SHW entry, No Hammers No Beans.  I did originally plan on it being called All Hammers No Beans and having spinning hammers like my RR2 LW, but it looked terrible so I made it what it is now.
 


Another SHW I've built is Cola Can, a tuna can ring spinner.  The extra weight the crash patch has given me will likely go into more armour as I have no other ideas.
 


Speaking of the crash patch, due to it making motors and batteries lighter, I decided to mess around w/ it and ended up creating a sh**ty BW overhead called Baby Flame, and less than 24hrs later I had to rebuild it to get it under 175kg again due to an update that made copals and astros heavier.  The top armour is kinda messy but there isn't rly a way to fix that w/ the weight I have left.

Sry if the bots in this month's update feel like they didn't have as much care put into them as some of the bots in last month's, I was kinda rushing at some points to get them ready to be showcased before taking a (almost) 6 week break from RA2.

First up, Infestation, a SHW clusterbot based off ants.
 

 


The only other bot in this month's update is Schweinehund, a CW IL style flipper that is in pathfinder 2's IRL division.  After seeing its first battle in that, I've decided I'll be switching it to 2wd so its power lasts longer and so I have the weight to make some other changes.  No idea why those black lines are on the skinned panels, they're not in the texture bmp files.
 


Any ideas for improvements to these bots would be appreciated.

I ended up returning from my break a couple of weeks early after being inspired to do so by Thistle's performance in RR3, so here's this month's update.

Updated Thistle to crash patch weight w/ a much stronger wedge, smaller wheels w/ some protection and the hammer config turned into an axe.
 


It took me a few weeks to decide whether to update Pitstop to crash patch weight or build a sequel, I ended up building a sequel: Pitstop S.
 


I built a shell spinner based off of buizel for Cringey's pokemon tournament, prolly gonna change the colours of the shell and teeth to look better.
 


I have completely rebuilt Ice Pick and its now up to crash patch weight.
 


And the same for Deep Blood.
 


Current WIPs include updates to Schweinehund to make its power last 3mins and a sequel to Slem & Slam.

Time for this month's update.

Made some changes to Schweinehund to hopefully make its battery last to the end of a fight.  I regret making it an extenderbot.
 


I built Slem & Slam 2, much wider dustpans to fight HWs more effectively and hammers on bursts for more reliable self-righting, although the chassis is weak.  Also managed to get them to both be MWs to fit the rules that some tournaments are running.
 


I've redone Circuit Breaker's arm so it can fit a belted TWMR and made its supports wider.
 


I also converted Pitstop S to a front-hinge as some hosts are no longer allowing top-hinges to use pneumatics, and this bot won a championship last week.
 


Currently WIP: NHAB 2 being bought up to the crash patch weight limit and a sequel to Heatwave.

Come on guys just leave him alone.  No forum rule exists that ban players from showcasing useless ugly bots.

This month's update is a couple of days late bc I was on holiday, but now I'm back home, here it is.

I built a MW turret flamer themed around a tank, although its chassis is paper thin, E-17.
 


Took a few attempts to get it to not sh** itself w/ the game's broken physics, but Heatwave 2 is finally complete.
 


NHAB 2 is now more heavily armoured and no longer has a beans texture for the top armour panel.
 


This is the first BW I've entered into a tournament, Scrap Baby.

Not got any new bots to showcase this month, just a couple which have had some changes made ahead of OW5 and other tournaments, plus a new consistent splash template.

After it was rejected from AT2 for lack of stability, I've replaced Deep Blood's tribar w/ a disc and made its armour stronger w/ the huge amount of weight freed up by the change.
 


Changed the flipper on Pitstop from 1 storm front-hinge to 2 VDMAs, visually nothing's changed, just a (hopefully) more powerful weapon.
 


Currently WIP: changes to NHNB and two new bots.

OW5 signups are open, so gonna show off my lineup for it here.
 

Pitstop and Deep Blood are exactly as I showcased them yesterday in my monthly update.  Circuit Breaker (while not shown in the splash) has had the casters on the end of its arm replaced w/ a tail like the one on Ice Pick.  This is due to the bot being 2kg overweight, despite it being the version I built it up to 794kg post-crash patch, as seen in september's monthly update.  The tail also makes it jump much less when swinging its arm overhead.  Hopefully they will perform better than my bots last series, especially Pitstop.
