Why do you want Starcore V4 so badly? V3's still as good as ever. Is the bot invertible?

It's DSA, But I'll send on one condition, I get the pack when It's AI'ed.

You will get it when it will be released. Do not presume Starcore will automatically send it to you.

Keep building in 3 for a bit. You can't jump up to the top level just yet, you have to prove yourself (because V4 is a big jump from v3)

I don't see how that's possible without keeping the ramplates, the DDT, and It's speed.

it's possible, just try.

Alright I'll keep what I got for now. And sorry if I confused you about my last bot, I got a little carried away. Anyway here are two more light weight popups, One of them is a rebuild of Zenith, and the other is my own bot, Bag of Marbles.

I think it's about time you learn how to snapper load. :D

https://gametechmods.com/forums/index.php/topic,4512.0.html

Snapper loading really helps especially on your second bot. Shrinking your chassis and snapper loading your wedge burst can give you enough weight to upgrade to Z-Tek drive (minus a few razors).

And 5 razors seems overkill for a LW, but both are quite nice. They remind me of my first LW popups hahahahaha

Both are excellent! But you should try eFFeing the razors so all of them hit at the same time.

Bag Of Marbles looks a lot better now it's got the Z-Teks on. Where did those edge lines in the back of the chassis come from, though?

One thing I'd do, personally, is use two 20cm extenders attached with the side attach points to try and get the wedge at a bit of a shallower angle. Something like I used on Blizzard 2 (I think) somewhere in my showcase.

I used the edge lines to line up the motors evenly to have it drive straight so it doesn't have flaws, unfortunately It didn't work out as well than I thought. The next bot is another rebuild for Cyclone, The weapon's replaced with Iron Spikes and the armor is now titanium instead of plastic.

Isn't Cyclone already like this in SCv4 ?

Anyways, you do build well. If only you could be interested in DSL...

Straight driving has more to do with weight distribution in the bot, rather than motor positioning. Crab Salad 2, for instance, had its CB mounted on the far right hand side, and since it was a very compact LW, it tended to spear to the right quite violently. If the weight balances out down the center of the bot, then it should drive fairly straight.

Usually a single motor spinning up to speed hinders straight driving though, especially at the lightweight level.

I was only replying why there were edge lines on the back Bag of Marbles, not to be reminded about the component weight. Alright now, this next bot is Aggresive Mutt It's not the best bot I built, but it was worth a try, I think.

Not exactly satisfied with that. You can burst your drive as well (so that means you can get more weapons and having a smaller chassis while having the same weight). Kinda like this:



Hopefully yours won't havok as much as that. :D

Thanks for the idea for an upgrade. But It's not exactly the best rammer, but it's better than the last one I made.

Square extenders = instant fail. Use round ones, or just change your chassis and attach HPZs directly to baseplate anchors.
