Thanks, Scrap Daddy

I just like to test the physics of bot building and see what works best.

I'm not insulting you or trying to offend you. I know you're trying to help. I'm not saying I don't need your help.

Can you maybe show the actual robot and not the internals? (Don't take this negatively, also I'm not saying that you should not show the internals, I just want you to show both.)

Now, more AI for 2.0...
Instant Fun. Looks like a mini Octomini Xtreme.
 


WTC. First a side hammer...
 

...now a poker becuse it was rebooted due to AI errors.
 


ZZZZZ, 5Z for short. It's NOT a Wandering Spinner because it spins in circles for most of the time.
 


Green Machine. I packed in as many castors as possible. DSA and ? razors (I can't count how many!)
799.7 KG without SZ.

5Z can definitely be invertible. I'm also not sure how useful casters are on the base of a LW. Would work better with side defence imo.
Better than GK since 2009.

5Z has castors, which make it immune to popups. This also makes it stable.

Side defence isn't a necessity on a HS like this, but it IS something to think about. Thanks for the tip.

In what world are popups the threat to a 1WD HS? You want to protect your wheel and weapon motor more than your baseplate.

If you insist on the bottom armour then at least make it invertible.

i refuse to believe someone as enthusiastic about ra2 is this dense. i've already told you to never use n-12s. flip the weapon motor over so the black bit isnt sticking out and it should run inverted fine.

instant fun needs a nifty to be full powered, and wtc is super ****ing slow for a poker, especially for one with axe heads'

youre wasting a ton of weight with the irons on the extenders on htgc and it would probably work better if it had a wedge instead

can we get insides on wedgebreaker? it definitely looks a little chunky

A. Yes, I'll see if I can flip the weapon motor. Thanks for that.

B. My forums are no swear zones. WTC is actually very effective, and too many pokers in the AI use HP
    zteks. I want a variety.

C. HTGC has leftover weight. members of GTM want me to built to the weight limit. The chassis is too small for
    a snapper. There will very likely be more FS in 2.0 that use wedges.

D. "Chunky" more like "Bulky" I'll bring up a screenshot of the internals when I can.

E. Instant Fun has 4 pinks. It's not underpowered.

Dude, Just take the feedback everyone is giving you, if you ignore it then you will continue to make robots that will be criticized, and then you will post saying about "How everyone is insulting you and your doing nothing wrong" That is only becsause you ignored their feedback, if you take the criticism, shape the robots up, and Listen to them, you will improve. Stop being so dense.

I do listen to them. I do plan to do something about HTGC's weight issue, and I do plan to flip the weapon motor on the HS over.

True, if it's about techniques That I know of that actually work. Wandering Spinners are a big example of something Feedback is something members find difficult to do.
Again, I invented WS, and they've been around in my RA2 since the beginning.
