Bodacious 2 -- what am i looking at.  i mean it might beat sealion i am genuinely not sure i can hit it
Camo Tank -- It's a popup so probably pretty good.  The front slope seems pretty steep though, might be an issue against the two HS in the field
Sealion Hammersmith -- When it can wedge under the opponent, Sealion is pretty good at tearing wedges and other important bits off. It's really bad against HS though, and the wedges are not like amazing or anything
Free Robox! -- It's a popup.  I like the shallow armored wedge. Will have to see how good its wedges and weapons are.
Caroobon Ice -- Popup.  I'm like 99% sure it did pretty good in a different tournament like, 20 years ago
Sakurai-tron -- Not sure what to make of it.  It kind of looks like Sealion Hammersmith? If you squint a bit?
Discarnate -- This looks cool, I like it.  Wondering if it will have problems getting bots to hit the spinner, with no slope leading into the spinner, because mine usually don't work when I do that.  Then again, I'm not particularly good
Blood Moon -- Also cool.  I like the chassis shape a little bit more here than on Discarnate
Hazardous Waste -- Emergency wedges and granny wheels don't give me great confidence, but it's a popup, so could always do well
Eco-Unfriendlier -- Similar to above.  Emergency wedges I don't think are that good compared to the other wedges, usually.  Drive seems stronger on this one compared to Hazardous Waste, but this one has a steeper chassis slope
Nuclear Winter -- Is this a popup? A wammer? Looks cool but I'm not sure I get it
Mr Claws -- it's a HS so i do not want to fight it
Mortality 2 -- Hybrid so it's cool.  Seems like it might be a more effective Sealion, combining horizontal and vertical attacks
I need a mom -- does it have weapons?
Maelstrom -- I built this specifically for this tournament, making it my first new bot in at least 2 years.  I don't have high hopes, but I think it's very cool
Unbearable -- It's probably a popup right?  I remember this kind of U-shaped popup being real popular in Ironforge
White Noise -- Popup.  Really just comes down to wedges, like all the others.
Sharknado -- Another HS so I do not want to fight it either
Sawbet -- you know i would love to see this thing turn out to have great wedges and pull off a razor guy run somehow
Caroobon ice placed 2nd in my tournament like 2 years ago

Frankly I think releasing fully custom components is a compatibility and balancing nightmare and would undo all the good work done with 2.4 to finally standardise everyone's installs so hosts aren't constantly having to look for some component that they don't have installed that someone used on a bot without realising that not everyone has it, especially with 2.5 in the pipeline which could potentially have wildly different component balance.

So its been 6mths since I last released a custom component pack, so I'm gonna just give a list of mods that I have WIP or planned.

- Fixed starting positions for 2016 RW arena (including separate version for tag team matches and clusterbots), finished but undecided whether I'll release it pubicly or just send to tournament hosts upon request.
- coloured sawblades, WIP, got to compile skinned GMFs, sort out txt files, test in game and make a preview image.
- A custom disc of two sizes, one w/ a 60cm diameter and teeth pointing out 8cm from the edge, the other has a diameter of 90cm and teeth stick out 12cm from the edge, tested ingame, stats yet to be finalised and skin yet to be made.
- a custom wedge component, made a model in tinkercad and downloaded as STL, but yet to put through blender, thinking about using it on a bot alongside my custom disc, naming both components after the bot.
- A custom arena for my next tournament, gonna start over from what I showed off in RA2 central discord.
- 2020 battlebox.

Fixed starting positions for RW 2016.

 

 

My custom disc.  Top is the small size w/ a 66cm saw blade under it, bottom is large size w/ a full size Mechavore disc under it.

 

The custom arena I was making for War of the Weapons, but will start over w/ for my next tournament.

Hey remember that stuff about not doing much damage?

Yeah that's not a thing anymore. Pretty standard fare for a bot update. Went back to it and realised there were a bunch of areas I could build smarter to save some weight without really compromising the looks at all, and with that weight I invested in a mech disc instead of the weedy shell disc + 2 small typhoons. This should certainly be more damaging, and possibly more durable too, though I'm not sure because of how frequency affects the damage that components take as well as dish out.

Certainly an improvement competitiveness wise, and visually it still looks good too, though I did kinda like the bolts on the spinner from the shell disc.
