It's amazing how far this has come. My guess is that it's still to hard for me to build anything in this but it looks great. Keep up the good work guys!

Hey all!

Come and say hi!
What do you say to me? Gas or something. My heart, eh! Nutter, UDT 1 Enjoy it as well! Al-Qaida ishiki also carried out confidential duties as well! Uh! You are the best special envoy of the Republic of Korea, and you have only one target for me. Don't do this. I'm going to push you with an accuracy that's never been changed in history. The internet makes you feel safe? Hamder, you're gonna roll. My I Don't go, it's just like this, and at the same time, all the information assets in Korea have been mobilized. • I'm tracking your IP address. This Shiva storm is going to drive you away, **** you. Hold on to Dandie, and I'll wipe you out. You know, you're not. My heart, The upstart sunbeams flashed in the East, do not flash, my hands alone, 700 pieces It's a different way to get you right.

Thank you!  We’re proud of it, but we still have a looong way to go before it is ready for commercial release.  In the meantime it is crazy cool to see people getting excited about it!

Phew!

Thanks for that kix!

From here on out, the most active discussions will be on the Official RR2 Discord Server.  I'm still planning to post occasionally here, but if you want the latest scoop head on over to the Discord.  All the cool kids (and older people too!) are doing it!

Hey yall!

Time for a minor progress reveal, an addition to the game that is welcome.

Connecting Batteries in Series and Parallel has been added.
What does this do? If you connect multiple batteries in series, the voltage of the motors will rise (sum of the voltages of the connected batteries)
Here is an example of an A40-300 connected to 2 batteries in series, running at 96.2V (48.1V+48.1V)

If you connect multiple batteries into parallel, the voltage of the motors will be same.Here is an example of an A28-400 running with 2 batteries connected in parallel, running at 37V

This can be tested on the bleeding edge build right away, but it will be released in a stable build too.

Developer’s comment:

Overvolting a motor rated for 24 volts all the way to 96 volts is extremely dangerous and not recommended!  Even though it might be okay in the game (for now), please try to keep the AmpFlows to 48 volts or below.  A lot of competitors have learned the hard way that AmpFlows can fry themselves when run this high.

That is true indeed. I was just showing what can be done

I’m going to limit this when I get a chance.  We don’t have a system in place for that yet though.  Maybe if you go above 48 volts the motor melts immediately...

Tbh, i would keep it as is, as atm, they are kinda saving the flippers. More voltage/more torque for the motor. Atleast keep it till the pneumatics get added

True.  I think if you could go to 96 volts on a motor this size you might see a lot fewer pneumatic systems IRL. Motors are just easier.

They truly are. We just need to figure out the jankines when on gearing higher than 10:0.1

The 05July2020 Alpha Builds are up!

https://robot-rumble.itch.io/builds

[Short Summary of Updates in the July 5th Build]

NOTE - If you want to see the full gory detail of all of the changes, discussions, and hacks, check out #bug-reports and #feedback-and-ideas on our official Discord server.

[Performance Improvement] Colliders on all attachments are now combined into a single mesh collider.  This should substantially improve physics performance for complicated robots.

[Added] It is now possible to attach batteries in series to create arbitrarily high voltages.  Please note that voltage limits will be enforced in future builds!  Unlimited voltage will exist until we have pneumatics ready.

[Added] LOTS of new components.

[Added] Saw Bots vs High Impact Spinners - The game can now analyze a spinner to determine the location of its "teeth".  If you design a weapon with lots of teeth it will act as a saw bot and grind away when it hits.  If you design it with few teeth it will act as an impacting weapon, delivering a lot of energy in a single blow.

[Changed] The restriction on spinner speed has been removed.  The game now compensates for whatever physics tick rate you have set and computes the correct spinner response.  15,000 RPM antweight spinners should now be possible.


A FEW NOTES ABOUT THIS BUILD

If you are struggling to get your motor electronics working, please head on over to Discord.  We have an active community there with a channel dedicated to #rr2-support:

https://discord.gg/tXwYay9

Damage System - The damage system is disabled.

AI - Still mostly broken.  For the most part all the AI does is turn on its weapon at the beginning of the match and keep driving at the nearest opponent.  Once the new damage system has been straightened out we will redesign AI around the new approach to damage.

Once the game is mature enough we will be replacing all of the house robots with ones built in the robot workshop.  Any bugs that exist in the current robots will be completely replaced by entirely new bugs at that time.
