F1Krazy's RR2 Showcase
« on: May 23, 2019, 07:15:45 AM »
Since this is a thing now...

I'll start with Fait Accompli. I finally got round to giving it the proper toothed scoop that the original RA2 build had, and it's still just barely within the unofficial 110kg weight limit (it weighs 109.96kg). Armour is now 3mm steel all round, save the weapon bulkheads, which are 5mm aluminium. It also only has one battery, so it's screwed as soon as battery life is implemented. Looks good, though!

With the new update adding Etek motors, weapon belts, and a green-screen feature, I'm gonna go through and gradually update my bots one at a time. First up is Spitfire.

 


Same 37kg disc, now Etek-powered. Takes a few seconds to spin up, and it can't drive forward and turn at the same time, but from what I'm seeing and hearing from other players, 81kJ is a serious amount of power. It's actually geared down slightly just so it spins up at a reasonable rate.

I love how the dimensions are listed on the new Overview screen, it's a neat touch.

You are like little baby. Watch this.

 


...I'm gonna need to gear this thing down. Every time I hit something it spins helplessly in circles for a few seconds while the weapon spins back up.

CodeSliver's tourney reminded me to finish updating Absolute Zero, so here it is:

 


It may have half the power of Spitfire, but it's still enough to send heavyweights flying into the air and across the Test Arena. Which is very satisfying to do, might I add. The front wedge is a separate component made of 4mm steel, and the wedgelets are 5mm steel.

I've spent several hours refining my drisc bot, given it a lick of paint, and a new name:

 


The armour is overkill and the weapon is pathetic, so I might see if I can drop it down to a middleweight (54kg). But I've poured enough time into it for now, so that can wait for another day.

Kix's big Robogames tournament prompted me to finally get back into this game. All my bots are on my old laptop, and I'll transfer them over at the weekend, but just to get back into the swing of things, I resurrected an old friend:



The hammer is anaemic, and it's 14.5kg underweight because I didn't know what to do with all that spare weight. Apparently spinners don't do damage in the current builds, so cranking the armour up felt like a waste (it's already got 10mm Hardox on the front wedge and 5mm Hardox everywhere else). Still, this was a good exercise just to re-learn the game, and get used to all the new features. Might try building some bots in lower weight classes.

Good to see you back in RR2! Love the design, but the one critique I have is the chain sticking out. Maybe replace it with a small belt? Other than that, great work!

Done. I also slimmed down the supports a bit, as they're no longer hiding a giant Pancake E-Tek, and bulked it up to the weight limit just to future-proof it.

 


I also found a folder with (very old versions of) some of my RR2 robots, so hopefully I don't have to remake them from scratch or retrieve them from my old laptop (except for Chinese Burn because I like it too much)

I am indeed able to update my old bots! Took me all night, but here's Fait Accompli:

 


There's probably still tweaks I can make - and there's tweaks I can make to Deathstalker as well - but that's a job for another day.

the axe looks a little boxy imo, other than that it looks pretty good
