Yeah... That... Mine sorta... Empties itself, so... Nope, I cant get them back  :realmad( . *le sigh*

602
Sure, thracker. Although, you'll have to give me time, because I accidentally deleted ironforge (with all of my robots  :facepalm: ). What sorta rules we thinking? I'd say ironforge unrealistic HW. what sorta thoughts you got?

603
Being the awesome ironforge builder that I am, I'm willing to participate. Hell, with heavyweights I might just mod my Red Blur Beta mk iii to make it an ironforge unrealistic. (you know, unstack the damn batteries and stuff.) When is the deadline for bot entries?

Expired? Well, apologies for the intrusion, then. But, seriously, with no dates or anything, there was no way of me knowing. Also, you should probably move it to "completed tournaments".

I'm happy to enter this competition, given enough time to build a decent bot. How long do we all have left?

Hi all, an update for all of you. I have decided to scrap the red blur beta mk. II for a new robot, this robot features burst motors, a first for me, and has a self-righting mechanism of my own design. More on it, as soon as possible. THE RED BLUR BETA MK. III IS BORN!

Wait... There are specific snapper and weapon array pieces? -_-' God, I am such a noob

I'm not sure what you mean by 'flamers", though. Do you mean the banhammers?

Also. I'm not exactly sure what you asked me to do with the picture files. Some sort of splash design? Uh...

Forgive me for being slightly dumb -_-"

Gee, helpful, Reier. I just crop it to save everyone time when looking at the bot.

I may think about redesigning the chassis, although I may keep the back design, because I want form as well as function, although, I've never thought about a sideways extender.

sorry this took so long. been really busy. anyway, here are my changes so far.


-I have moved the pistons forward, reducing the weight taken up by extenders.


-I have centralised the weight to help with stability





However, as we can see, the actual bot is still 46.9 kg too heavy. Has anyone here got any ideas to be able to shave off some more weight?

I'm probably gonna aim for a middleweight, as I want it to be relatively speedy, so I'll try removing the extenders on the pistons to try and shave off some weight (plus, they broke offf way too easily). I'll be back with some pics later.

Sorry, it was late and I was really irritable...

Now, if you think there is something wrong with the extenders, point out what could be wrong with them, please.

EDIT: I have made some changes to my bot, removing the batteries and replacing them with two diehards and a pack of duracell to bring it up to 50 amps.

Is that how it works? Makes sense, I guess. Sorry, being an absolute total noob. :baffled:

I need the extenders, as the burst pistons cant be mounted to a baseplate directly, and the banhammers would be too close to the chasis without them. The ridiculous amount of batteries is because I need more amps to make the actual robot faster whilst giving it a decent amount of battery life.

So, is there any actual IMPROVEMENTS you could suggest, rather Tha speculating on what is wrong with it, as we all know it wont be great, considering its my first bot.

So, from what Im getting here, I should use just one baseplate with multiple extenders to attach both ot the banhammers and pistons together?

I'll try to get another shot of the inside next time I get to my computer (on mobile rn)

Is it possible you could give me a link to this extender tutorial?

well, hey everyone, I'm the Red Blur, but you all can call me Chris, if you want, I'm still a total noob for building robots, and only came across this brilliant program thanks to one of my friends, you may know him as 'Ecolusian' around these parts. Anyway, onto my bot:

Red Blur Beta (don't ask what happened to Alpha * shudders*)





This is my first proper bot, it has titanium 1 armour

I'm not sure what category the robot fits into, but I use piston-powered blades to stab at my opponent whilst also blasting them with two banhammers attached to either side, this enormous amount of air required is supplied through three air tanks at the back.

There is one ballast at the back of the vehicle

Any tips to make this better?

I think I have the basics of building mechanisms down, but a friend of mine says that I have multiple flaws in weapon design, so I am wondering if I can get hold of any good weapon designs that could give me the edge in battle?

Hoping for a good response
