Mech Madness is now looking for new applicants for Season 3! After a wild Season 2 successfully wrapped up under a new format, I made the announcement that entries will be accepted for next season right up until a TBA due-date. I am currently making some technical changes to how the MM edit of the RoboGames arena functions with OotAs and multibots; once this is complete, an end date for signups will officially be announced. But definitely start sending your robot design files & any AI to me as soon as you please!

DSL TC Showcases / That Time FaceBagman Tried DSL

First, a major thank you to all of you for inspiring me to join and get back into this game. I'm fairly sure I have negative artistic/creative talent, but I enjoy giving this stuff a shot anyways and I'm always looking for advice and ways to improve what I'm building technically and aesthetically.

So since my joining this site kicked off with entering a tournament right off the bat, here's the Cruiserweight that will be repping me in GTM Robot Wars, Witching Hour:



Witching Hour
"Ring" Spinner
Weight: 593.00

As far as ways to improve it for the future, I definitely need to get better at extender-work. It also has some trouble maneuvering when cornered, but that may have more to do with the AI I've been playing around with? When I've taken it for a whirl, it's not nearly as sluggish/awkward.

Also, watching it Mauler dance is amazing.  :beer:  My goal was to make a bot that could pull the dance off and still keep on moving when inverted. From that standpoint, I'm incredibly pleased with how it turned out. I think it actually hits a little harder and lower when inverted, oddly enough. Makes it naturally very successful against flippers but it's obvious weakness is to well-timed hammers and any spinner with better mallets that can out-range it.

The full HW version is a complete rebuild with a larger frame, a different drive-setup, and panel-work around the ring. I may enter it in a future Redditbots tournament under the name "Forever Midnight" if the current tourney there is popular enough to guarantee it.

Eager for any advice anyone has!
