I'd make it a HW/SHW with a double-sided flipper. Right now your 360° weapon range is hard to utilize.

Racon isn't a forced acronym, the first AI tournament was named after beans and the organizer had to add a second B.

[post about clamps]

How do your clamps work? Aren't they essentially just hammers? I once saw someone in vanilla RA2 build a clamp by taking sideways-hammers and having them open/close like a door.

Crazy idea but what if we have a tournament of GTM vs The chinese racoon tournament thing?

How would this work exactly? Would we use our rules, their rules? Who would host it? Would it be a regular thing or a one-off?

No. We should kill every showcase before 2014. Because only three of us ever read that far back.

What is your resolution? 2,048x2,048?

I like it. It's probably not the first of it's kind but it looks imaginative.

About the small wedges: they are LOW to the ground when you use them correctly. This ties into the next section as well since it plays a huge role in our meta.

Okay, DSL 2.1 had wedges like that, but it was generally a door/skirt hinge+skirt, which is less useful now with the thicker skirts. Both methods apply useful amounts of pressure to the ground.

The formula that we have currently agreed on is hinge + some rod + small wedge. Sounds simple, but the intricacies of how to outwedge another robot with the same style of wedges is beyond me. We have seen situations where A outwedges B, B outwedges C and then C outwedges A. There is definitely a lot to be learnt here.

Wedges are tricky. For example, some robots have wedges flush with each other. This is creating a small weakness. Wedge quality decreases as you move away from the center of the hinge.
Perhaps they are trying to make a platform for the opponent to sit on, but there are better ways of doing that. There are other factors too, such as pressure, weight distribution, and sometimes floor meshes.

I wonder why they use so many small wedges. It's a good look but I'm not sure how it is helping from a combat standpoint.

Good copypasta but the rest of this thread is disappointing.

Hmm you know it's not IRL because the sword intersects the treads hmmmmmmmmm.

Looks like Dr. Inferno Jr mated with Lambsy, what's the weight.

It looks ok, if you want to make it more of a fighter you can look at some old full body drums for inspiration.

You might also want to incorporate some kind of "legs" if you're going for IRL.

There's nothing wrong partying like we're in the Bush years, maybe you'll even get a person or two to try for a bit.

The concept is interesting. The body looks good but could use an extra color. Your one sawblade is pointing the wrong way.

Long bump. The later colors like neon-blue appear to have .9-kilo 24cm aluminum extenders instead of 1.8-kilo for my game's vanilla extenders.
