Redalert's rare RR2 showcase
« on: May 22, 2019, 10:00:29 AM »
Finally! I can showcase my RR2 bots!

When you have a terrible computer that lags so much, building a good bot is nearly impossible.

Here are E.P.I.X. and IronTail. Both have 15 mm. Armor.

Really boxy and messy.
The bottom bot is a bit better than the bot at the top but not by much.

I can't tell what EPIX is actually supposed to do. Are those front wedges lifting forks, or just static? Either way, I reckon you should make them longer and pointier, and make it easier to get underneath opponents. I admire your attempt to use the painting system even though it's currently terrible.

IronTail's bar spinner is going to be too high up to hit most opponents. There's nothing wrong with re-positioning it to be lower (say, halfway down the chassis). You may also be able to get away with using smaller wheels, for reduced ground clearance.

Tall wheels make IronTail tip forward, so the spinner can hit opponents.
Yes, E.P.I.X. is messy. That's because I have THE worst computer for this you could ever imagine, and it glitches up the paint job.

Here's another one.
 

Name's TinyMite. It's a LW.

I that's really bland

Like it's just a chassis with weird forks that worn get under things. I know it's LW but why would you do such a boring design in a game that offers lots of creative options

^point.

Again, my computer lags, and that makes it really hard to build complicated bots.
I'll try and make my next one more interesting.

Definaltey your best bot so far but the motor sticking out looks weird. It would protect it and make it look better

Wow, when you said this game made your PC lag, you really weren't kidding. I suffer from intermittent lag spikes that make building tricky, but they're nowhere near that severe. What quality and resolution are you running it at? Try 1280x720 windowed mode in low quality, that worked for me.

It's a pretty simple build, but for a lightweight, it looks decent enough.
