Title: Redalert's stock showcase
Post by: Redalert on October 17, 2018, 05:35:49 PM
I started making Hardcore bots after I started seeing how to build them. Soon after that, I built my first hardcore bot- a 500kg. popup named, "Black Dragon." Sorry there's no picture available!

Another early bot I built is shown below- Yuki.

Make sure you insert your attachments after adding them to your post.

The bot you posted looks good for a beginner. It would help if we could see the insides. Without that, the best advice I can give is to always build to a weight limit. Other HWs will have 300kg more weaponry/armour/batteries/drive/whatever than your 500kg bot, putting you at a disadvantage.

You'll notice how much my bots have improved if you crack open bots like Trench Drill in the bot exchange (This is one I made), and NIGHT FURY in the Special Forces pack I inserted in the Bots file in Downloads. Give those two a shot.

Most folks are not going to go through the effort of downloading your bots to give you feedback. Please get some screenshots and follow the guide to upload them properly. I promise it's super easy once you've done it once.

This bot was built for my Special Forces pack. Its name is BLACK LIGHTNING.
the computer this bot was built on didn't have a screenshot function, so I took an picture of the bot with a different camera.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
3 supervolts, 14 razors, 2 irons, 4 HPztek drive, 4DDTS and a Snapper2 for the weapons, double-strength titanium. The bot originally weighed 799.8 kg, but I added a smartzone, and it now weighs 801.8 kg.

I'm not an expert on Stock, but I reckon that's pretty good for a beginner. Generally, smart zones aren't counted when it comes to weight, so your robot would be 799.8kg.
Title: Re: Redalert's bots showcase
Post by: Dark-Al on October 18, 2018, 04:20:24 PM
Not bad for a beginner. Just something for next time, you can take in-game screenshots by hitting F11 on your keyboard which will save your taken screenshot to the game's screenshot folder.

As for the bot itself, you don't need three supervolts to power your bot, two will be enough to provide the power that you need for a heavyweight, the third is just a waste of weight. You can also save some weight by resizing the chassis in the area where the drive motors are. In case you struggle in fitting two supervolts in, you can try to stack the batteries together to save some room for an additional snapper 2 for an extra feeder wedge. I would also remove the snapper 2 that connect to the two iron spikes, since if you are making a traditional pop-up, iron spikes aren't exactly viable for a pop-up, due to the damage collision area being at the tip instead of all around like the razor. With the weight that you saved, you can add in another Weapon motor, some more razors or the extra snapper 2 for another feeder wedge.

For the rest of the weapon set-up it's not in any means bad. But I would recommend getting another feeder wedge onto your bot. Having one feeder wedge is fine for maybe a lightweight or a middleweight, but most heavyweights will often have at least two feeder wedges will ensure a better chance at getting under opponents better than having the single wedge, but also to use up the weight limit. So replace the blue snapper with snapper 2s, due to the end snapper part being able to reach much lower to the chassis, allowing for a much better wedge ground clearance. You should read this for a few more tips on snapper wedges: http://beetlebros.gametechmods.com/ra2techs.htm#wedges

This is a lot to take in by the amount that when into this post. Sure it looks all daunting with all these words of advice, but if you take one step at a time, you can see an improvement between your older bots and your newer bots. If a little more advice on stacking and glitches, you should look here: https://gametechmods.com/forums/tutorials-and-tips/ra2-stacking-and-using-glitches-to-build/

Thanks! that'll help a lot.

I know I got the idea for numerous batteries from bot like Ultimate Spammer, which actually has more batteries than my popup.

Also, the 2 irons have actually broken a couple of spinners, but I think putting them out further will make the irons inflict more damage.

Nowadays, my HW popups don't use blue snappers. They use DDTS.

True. If I had tons of space for weapons left, I would've stuck with DSA.

 But the main thing that came out at me, was that I was fighting Ultimate Spammer one time, and it KOed a fellow popup with DSA in 1 hit. I don't know if this was that the popup I was partnering up with didn't actually have DSA, or that Ultimate Spammer landed a good shot on it. When Ultimate Spammer, struck BLACK LIGHTNING in the same exact spot, it only damaged half of its armor bar. I looked in the bot file and noticed I had Double strength titanium. This was how BLACK LIGHTNING destroyed Ultimate Spammer.

Another point would be if I had a HUGE chassis, where DSA was the best option.

You can't get double strength titanium unless you use a chassis from the stock AI  or BFE

What really gave me the idea for the extender setup was the  fact that the Y connector is IN the chassis, and if one of the black extender couplings gets torn off, I still have the other. It's also a good way to distrubute spikes to the whole bot, so there's no "blind spot."

Good news! I got the screenshot function to work! here are the best bots of the AI...
1.  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
this bot's name is Tempest. It's mainly built off 2 Snapper 2's. The snappers are wired to lurch the bot forward. Redbird drive, 6 irons, 2 ram plates, DSA, 1 supervolt.

You don't need a new post for every robot. You can attach more than one picture to a post. As for the robots, they're all Starcore AI quality (assuming there are no hacked parts), keep improving and you might want to newer packs.

Pestilence is by far the most efficient, though it has been done before like a lot of good robots. Try making it a Sit and Spinner to improve balance, Mr. AS did that.
Unnecessary Roughness is a little too frail looking for my taste.
Tempest could be built with two blue burst motors (or even one) to save weight.
Yellowjacket is better than your other HW, but it still has a lot of space. I would remake it so the body is smaller, but with stronger/more parts.

The BW is a tad overweight. If it's possible, see if the chassis can be any shorter to shave a little weight. Overall, you seem to be pretty skilled, but please crop your screenshots and put multiple attachments in your post instead of posting chains of single pictures. It saves on clutter a ton.

The preview of this bot shows it with pole spikes, but it really has razors. Probably better than Battering Lamb, due to the fact that no extenders are exposed enough to be immediately ripped off.

Don't use Plastic Armour! We keep saying this but use DSA! It's much tougher than plastic in Stock.

Apart from that, I wouldn't use, multiple snapper for the weapons. They may be lighter than the DDT, but they're less practical to use, especially with your set-up and aren't as powerful as the DDT. You might as well keep them to make a burst wedge. You cold save some weight by removing the Snapper 2 with the spike strip since it's a waste of weight and spike strips are very ineffective for a pop-up in stock despite the damage zones.  Like what 09 said, Y connectors are a waste of weight. You can try using the effe glitch to insert multiple extenders onto the snapper/DDT to save weight.

It's a MW, 2 green snapper is pretty much the perfect amount of weapon motor power for a MW popup. Vertical mounted snappers are also great for true popups while outperform regular popups, there is honestly no really good reason to use DDTS on a double weapon motor MW popup.

the poker needs better drive and the weapon setup could be better. 5 razors isnt enough for an unarmored lw poker with no wedges either.
plastic on mw popups with armor is fine, but there is no need to use y connectors for the weapons when you could use simple extenders like everyone else. the snapper holding a spike strip is a waste of weight too.

regular zteks (I wanted more power for the weapons. This also increases this bot's run time.)
I believe every spin motor in RA2 uses the exact same amount of battery power, so dropping to regular Z-Teks isn't going to increase your robot's battery life. I wouldn't have thought battery life would be a concern anyway, tbh, I got the impression Stock fights rarely ever last the full three minutes.
Title: Re: Redalert's bots showcase
Post by: Redalert on October 21, 2018, 05:52:38 PM
It depends. RADs are both the weakest motor and the lowest-costing motors, while HP zteks are the most powerful. They are twice as powerful as the regular, and also consume twice the amount of power.


By the way, I'll change the poker soon.

I plan to see how the AI pack works as is, then, I plan to switch the poker over to DSA, and add irons in place of razors.

Also, the popup will change. I'm sure of it. The spike strip in the middle helps throw the opponent up on top of the popup.

Post by: UberPyro on October 21, 2018, 09:53:42 PM
RA2 is bugged such that all motors draw the same 100 power and there's no way to change it. So HP Z-teks are twice as powerful as normal Z-teks except with an itty bit of more weight. Which means that in almost all cases where they can be used over normal z-teks, they should be used.

You definitely want HPZs on your 36HS because you need the power to move the heavy 9 spike weapon bars. Also, 36HSes typically have HPZ drive. The true 36HSes that people like Sage and Inf built first had HPZ drive in along with the HPZ powered tribars and 2 black batts, but it takes extremely good chassis management to build something like that.

a dual wedge LW  popup. VERY damaging, but has plastic armor. Still a good popup because of it's dual wedge concept that most popups don't have.

This is a MW  popup entirely focused on weapons called, "Emerald Pain Wedge". It has 10 razors, DSA, and a good wedge. Believe me- You do not want to wind up on this bot's wedge.

Summit- my first castor-armored popup. Its weapons are likely to be changed due to the use of Y connectors in the next AI version. 4 spike strips, 4 razors, DSA.

PrIOritY has been more successful than any other crawler I have built so far, and it's kicked the butts of (destroyed) Ultimate Spammer (deathmatch), Little Darling, Epic, and Mr. Hell, (all in a Battle Royale), Maelstrom (v3, deathmatch), and a LOT more other bots.

Good going Geice. You should test your robots against something from after 2004. Visually they're fine. Pacman does not need two wedges, but good on you for making an attempt. If your rammer's weapons touch the ground too much, then you're gonna want to fix that because they're not going to do as much.

Post by: Redalert on October 22, 2018, 12:02:05 PM
Good point. Not only do the weapons deal less damage, but they cause drag. I'll fix that next time. Also, I think the nifty's a bit too little for a MW.

Lightweights have had two pinks since the total output is 200, and you only need that much. Just be careful because MWs have longer fights than LWs and you'd be cutting total power by about half.

This is easily one of the coolest bots in the entire pack- a dual drum spinner with 32 razors (16 on each of its massive spinners.) It's very stable, and has a central gap that the drums are exposed to. This actually allows this bot to break popup wedges!
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
DSA for armor, 2 supervolts and 3 pinks (a little too many batteries), and ram plates on the front like Neglected Waterbug. Could be faster with 4 HP zteks instead of 2 HP zteks.

This little antweight uses a ninja star sawblade to inflict damage. It has DSA, which is something most other antweight spinners don't have.

If I added plastic armor, I could attach another pink, but I decided to just keep DSA on this bot.

a BW hammer. This bot's designed to strike popups and wedges, and it does a fair job of doing just that. Spinner fodder, though.

I dont have much to say about the bots since I dont build to the meta but I will say that you should try put all the bots into one post rather than have separate posts for each bot. youve shown off 5 bots today and they could probably all been put in the same post.

Also Kix is right, a bot is only famous when it does well in a tournament or gets the sh** kicked out of it in a tournament.

Can you actually listen to people (including a mod) when they say to put all the bots in 1 post?

You seem to have the basics down fairly well. Some general advice for now is that the shiny hub wheels are generally the most efficient wheels, avoid t connectors and y connectors since they are inefficient and ugly and try using the side points on the red and black extenders more for angles, replacing the concave angles in designs (like in some of your crawlers and pokers and popups) with straight ones will help save on weight (by reducing surface area), use this  (http://beetlebros.gametechmods.com/ra2stats.htm)to help you figure out the right number of batteries for your bot, and you could probably improve by learning some heavier glitches.

Overall your robots are still better than most new builders.

I’m not sure how your hammer is going to beat anything without a wedge or trapping system

The anteeight spinner is pretty interesting even if it’s never going to fight anything, though you might be able to make it more compact

The drum spinner is pretty cool, can’t really find any fault in it, it just looks cool

Not Stromata is ok, but I doubt the axe head will do anything

Face Spinner McCastorson could be more compact, but I doubt it’ll be doing anything either way? Out of curiosity, what weight class is it?





Title: Re: Redalert's bots showcase
Post by: Redalert on October 23, 2018, 08:32:51 AM
You've got a point. If the hammer attacks a popup, its front end will be lifted off the ground. Also, when it does, BANG! Game over for the hammer.

I really like the name you named the LW castor armored face spinner. It makes me laugh. (and by the way, it's a lightweight, weighing in at 247.6kg.)

I'll looked at the battery tutorial (By the way, I LOVE the beetlebros site), and as it turns out, you're 100% correct. 1 pink =1 HP ztek, so 2 HP zteks can be powered with 2 pinks.

You can run one Ztek off a pink but you should only do that for rammers since they don't have much total power
Title: Re: Redalert's bots showcase
Post by: UberPyro on October 24, 2018, 02:38:08 PM
Motors get weaker as the bot runs out of power, so in most cases you shouldn't power 2 hpzteks with 2 pinks. Bigger batteries are going to be more efficient in that they provide power for longer.
Title: Re: Redalert's bots showcase
Post by: Redalert on October 26, 2018, 10:11:18 AM
Yeah, running zteks off pinks is a clever idea, but nifties are best. Supervolts are a bit much for a LW, but heavier rammers should use supervolts, because they'll slow down.

I appreciate the ideas you people give me. Thanks!

I plan to develop more bots today.
Title: Re: Redalert's bots showcase
Post by: Redalert on October 26, 2018, 06:52:56 PM
New bot.
I thought I'd have a go at a LW SNS, and here is is. Redbird drive, standard ztek spinners, DSA, 248.7 kg.

Title: Re: Redalert's bots showcase
Post by: Reier on October 26, 2018, 07:07:55 PM
pretty tight. I personally would recommend stronger drive by downgrading the weapon motors, you can get away with rad weapons easily on this imo. irons instead of razors would be pretty nice too since you're already low on weapons.
Title: Re: Redalert's bots showcase
Post by: Redalert on October 27, 2018, 07:32:36 AM
New bot.
A batter version of Ultraviolet, basically. The piston's up high, and is used to punch at popup wedges. Oh, and break off the weapons.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
HP ztek drive, 6 irons for punching, snapper2 with a small wedge, 4 pinks, DSA.
I used the EEFE glitch on the piston to get the irons to attach as shown.

Next, I went on a "spinner spri," and developed 3 different spinner bots.
First up, a generic VS. I wanted to apply an innovative twist to the design, so I made it have a wedge. I would like to reboot this bot in the future, but for now, it's good.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

Now, I felt like making the next two bots "snappy" (pun intended), and built them off snapper II's.
This first one's an 18 razor HS with castor armor and redbird drive.
Here's a closer look at just the chassis...
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
..and here's the completed bot.
   [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

I was in a rut when I made this bot, and I wanted to have irons positioned like on Little Darling, but a popup slipped right under this bot, and mauled it in its first match. So, I went back to the drawing board and added castors. The spinners were still way up off the ground, so I decided to attach the irons as shown, on Y connectors. Now, the bot isn't underweight, weighing in at 796 kg., and has much better defense. The spinners now cover the whole front, and even broke hammers off anti-HS in a few fights! Plans for the future- better spinners and a flatter chassis.

Post by: Redalert on October 29, 2018, 09:04:38 AM
Time for popups :))
First up, a LW popup with a funny name- "A Bot With Rabies." A funny name, but a killer popup. A lot like Zenith, but it's not.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

Next, HELP! (this is the name) Surprisingly deadly.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
I was having problems getting the razors to hit all at once, so I had to make the razor assemblies' weight equal. In the end, a Y connector proved most useful.

I saw this popup concept several places, and realized how good it was, so I developed the same concept (with different weapons) for my AI pack. Here it is.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
z-tek drive, spike strip on a Snapper2 (surprisingly effective), supervolt for power, DSA.

This HW popup is a combination of a wammer and a popup. It's another 1-hit-KOer.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
3 supervolts, 18 razors, 2 irons, 4 DDTs and a lone Snapper 2, DSA.

I wanted to try something different in this popup. I wanted to try out a razor configuration, where 1 set of razors is behind the other. It's rather effective...
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
4 razors on Snapper2's, regular z-teks (I didn't have enough weight or space for HP zteks), 1 nifty and 5 pinks, DSA.

This popup was designed to give Revenge of Dr. Wham 4 HP ztek drive. I didn't want it to look exactly like RODW, because that would (1) be copying a bot, and (2) there's no fun in fighting the exact same bot.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
I don't know remember exactly how many razors this bot has, but it has a LOT. It also has ploe spikes that fire from below like a true popup, which break off small wedges and EMERGENCY flippers. DSA for armor.

This "chassis killer" has more than a dozen razors on 5 DDTs, some of which are stacked. If it hits you just right...POW! 1 hit KO. Interesting fact- The bot's theme comes from "Twilight."

I wanted this to be a separate post because these bots are of a different type.

first, a MW with a biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig drum. It has DSA, which is something most MW VS don't. it also has effective wedges and HP ztek drive.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

This is easily the coolest bot I built so far- a face spinner HW with 2 spinners on HP zteks, and another 2 on RADs. It has a single wedge instead of dual wedges, and it's pretty good. I'm really looking forward to how this bot performs in the AI.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
It has DSA.

This tiny antweight starts out on its fron and then self-rights with its spinners. Well defended and interesting, but not very damaging head-on. It also has plastic armor.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

This is something unusual- a popup that uses CO2 and a piston to inflict damage. It's wedges are decent, but he weapon doesn't do terribly much damage. Not to mention, a nifty isn't enough to power the Srimech function.
Still effective, and it can maul your bot's underside over time.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
DSA armor, HP ztek drive, 6 pole spikes.

Surprisingly good rammer. It's well balanced and has good drive, power, and weapons. The ax heads also don't drag.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
Hp ztek drive and DSA armor.

Funny name for this rammer- it comes from the team "Crabby Crabz", and it's named Radiant Crab.
6 stacked irons, HP ztek drive, a few pinks for power, DSA.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

I REALLY should have cut more space out of this bot's chassis, but it's not bad. It has snowplows for protection and HP ztek drive. It's good at pinning HS and has DSA for protection. Comes from the same team Crabby Crabz.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

This funny-looking crawler from Crabby Crabz is just plain insanity. It's pretty tough, but a havok explosion source. DSA for armor.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

I wanted to add another git-ripping HS to the AI pack, so I built Hostile Crab (below) which is a bot that can be found in the team Crabby Crabz. DSA, good wedges, good spinners, good protection, only problem is it's slow.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

A 15 razor HS. 1 spinner has 9 razors, the other has 6. I added rubber wheels to the  bot, which make the bot surprisingly stable. DSA armor and the name's Y-CRAB. It's from Crabby Crabz.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
Here's Y-CRAB in the test garage...
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

Finally, the last bot on Crabby Crabz, King Crab.
A lot like Child's Play IV. I wanted to add some differences, so I built this bot with a different spinner configuration.
The funny part- King crabs are huge- This King Crab is a LW.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
6 razors, DSA, supervolt for power.

on the gutripper MW with the tribars you definitely have the weight to upgrade the drive (which you should) if you drop the 2 razors in the middle that dont do much and use blue snappers instead of snapper2s for the wedges

geice is right about the pole spikes.
Title: Re: Redalert's bots showcase
Post by: Dreamcast on October 29, 2018, 08:48:09 PM
Your Ultraviolet clone seems too skinny. Your 18 razors HS is pretty cool. The Y connector spinner is odd, some of your Irons are angled pretty high up. Your VS is too slow.

A lot of your popups pretty rustic looking, I'd guess HS can smash a few of them quickly because they're chassis are easy to smack. I'm also more of an HS guy, so I might be biased. Your "1-hit-KOer" reminds me of R4.

In my view, unprotected motors will fall off more on drums than the weapons themselves, try to protect your motors. I like your FS and feel people underappreciate them. The Crawler/HS uses Y connectors badly, a 1-2 extender system would be tougher.

Thanks for the heads-up about the pole spikes. I wasn't thinking about razor tips, so I'll think about modifying the bot's weapons.

You read my mind when it came to the HS gut-ripper. I managed to fit in good wedges and good armor, but when it came to the drive train.....uh oh.
I didn't want plastic armor on this bot because it would make the gut ripper cannon fodder.

Yes, the popups I recently showcased are easy to damage, but the popups like MXOS 1 and 2 as well as Summit are well defended! I'll tell you right now, You'll find Pacman (LW popup with 2 wedges) fun to absolutely destroy!

If I made the poker any wider, it would have leftover space. Not to worry, there will very likely be more pokers in the pack better than it.

I see what you mean about the spinners on the funky crawler that use Y connectors. I was originally going to try couped extenders, but stability was the downfall, and I needed a spinner that would make the crawler more stable. Eventually, Y connectors with irons made the balance between damage and stability.

'said I would make better pokers in the AI pack, and I did. This next team has 3 decent pokers. The team's name is Pit's Army after the angel Pit

First up, a rather interesting poker. It has a T-ram with razors on it followed by stacked razors on a piston. It can really hit hard, but I need to find a way to remove the plastic armor and make it DSA without dramatically decreasing how effective the bot is.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

Next, bigger is better- and even more powerful poker. It has way more razors than the LW poker, and I wanted slipperbottoms because I wanted to angle the spikes down a little bit... DSA armor.
    [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

Now, this one uses EEFE to cram 4 HP zteks on a blue snapper. I'm interested to see how it works in the AI.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

This LW HS has 1 HP ztek with irons on it. It's also the only LW to have castor armor on its underside. The spinner is actually at the back of the bot, which prevents other bots from hitting the tribar. It's built off a blue snapper and has redbird drive and DSA.

With that, I built this bot. Pretty damaging, but It's 713 kg, which is underweight. It was originally going to have 36 irons, but that would make the bot overweight, so I stuck with 24. It's probably going to have bigger wheels added on, so I can attach castors to the underside of this bot. DSA armor and 2 supervolts.

this robot is going to do zero damage

razors work because they dont have normals so driving over other bots does constant damage

pointy tips only do damage at the point, so unless youre planning on flipping sideways onto them its going to do nothing

That's why I've AIed the bot do point right. This allows it to aim one side towards the opponent.
You're absolutely right, though. If it had razors, it would be more damaging, but I wanted to try something new.

the whole point is that it's a version of release, not just a version. otherwise you would add another decimal every time you changed a single bot part or line of code

LW HS is missing a razor. Rebuild the chassis to remove empty space and you'll save more than enough weight for it. Also the redbirds are probably too high to be effective, it'll just get out-weapon'd by every other 9HS that seems to be commonplace these days or wedged underneath by popups and one shot

Again, rammer could probably benefit from less empty space. Spend the time to cut down on it and you'll have a lot more weight to play with. You could probably also make it shorter, wedge tends to be useless on a pure rammer. No point telling us you've put a smart zone on it either, it really doesn't matter

HW Popup, ramplates are off centre and there isn't nearly enough of them. DDT wedges are better (unless I missed some form of wedge innovation whilst I was gone) and there's still empty space that you could have put into weapons or wedges.

Speaking of weight, how much do any of these actually weigh?? It's unclear

Okay, so I guess those bots are fine...

LW popup is fine, you can get away with bigger chassis for the extra hp it allows. Again, if you cut down on space around the components you could make the chassis wedge shallower or even removing razors (you might be overloading the snapper) could help you add more size or width to the wedge.

If you're getting no responses but you still want to improve things, self-evaluate.

If I added another razor to the LW HS, it would have plastic armor and also be a middleweight.

I know. Weird, right? I think an error occurred in the RA2 software that allowed me to have DSA. I'll see if I can fix that to make the bot legal...

The redbirds are angled down to help it hit low opponents.

Thank you for the idea about the HW popup. It has tons of space and DDTS would make the wedges more effective. Also, I'll see if I can cram some more armor in the middle of the popup and move one of the ram plates over. They do look crooked.

the MW is in a rut. It has plenty of power and weapons, and it's in dire need of repairs. It'll likely come back in a different format in the next AI.

I wanted MiniBerg to be as snug as possible. I like your idea of the shallower wedge, but I wanted more weapons.

Thanks for the support!

That's not a pyscolone popup. You need two wedges.

Shrink the chassis. Cloning a pyscolone is a perfect way to learn to make tight chassis. Also, rotate your razors the same way so they all hit at the same time.
Title: Re: Redalert's bots showcase
Post by: Redalert on November 07, 2018, 12:39:23 PM
I thought PYS popups had one wedge and 2 DDTS with razors on them.

You're right about the chassis. I need to make it smaller. I just don't want to undo all the stacking that took me 30 min. to complete. On the bright side, I could EEFE those last 2 razors that don't point the same way so they do. Great idea.

I'll keep this in mind...

I've tried this design multiple times. If I added any more razors on it, it would be too much weight, but I think it's damaging as is.

I know one of my popups in my AI pack that's under development, "Treason" uses one DDT with 6 stacked razors on it. I did this with the EEFE glitch, and it does amazing damage.

you can run 6 razors on a ddt just fine as long as you have the battery life to keep it at full power

that being said the pinks are inefficient compared to the rest of the bats and ddt wedges are a waste of weight at mw level

rip-off

First-What IS a "rip-off?"

Second- It would be plain stupid to copy someone's bot. Philippa built Gone Fishing. I respect it. Starcore built T-800 Terminator. I respect it. Spawngeek built the ever-popular Little Darling. I respect it. A bot built by someone is the same as "trade marking."

Third- look closely- Transistor's chassis is slightly bigger. You'd have to delete all components to resize the chassis, and I do not use Bot File Editing at all.

Fourth- this has happened a lot. For instance- Kill343gs' "my Playstation Gone Wild" and "Breakout" are relatively similar. Were they copying each other? No.

What happened was I built Transistor, and then a few days later, I saw Pip's Gone Fishing HS and the first thing that came to my head was "Wow! these bots look alike." It was AFTER I built Transistor that I asked for Pip's bot. Proof right there.

 Fifth- Also, let's not go into depth on the factor that these two look alike. This isn't a flame showcase.

case closed.

CNGH I don't get your point, this isn't just a "oh, it's just all stock bots look alike" sorta thing, Transistor is a blatant rip-off of Pip's bot.
Gone Fishing is a clone of Fission

Thanks Pip. But ngl I don't see the resemblance between it and my verts :dumb)

Okay. Before this turns into a riot, let's switch the topic.
I did some fights with my AI pack, and came up with some exotic fights.

First- AI against AI. this was a test. Remix (dual HS) vs. Tempest Mini (LW Face Spinner.)
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

Next, the rather unusual (and funny) victories.
First, I managed to flip Tempest Mini over, and perfectly center it so it had no traction with my best LW popup, Eject!
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

Clickbeetle's Ant Army actually beat SHW-NEW BEGINNING via hit points. Since both bots were nearly impossible to damage, it was mostly about points.
Funny fact, SHW-NEW BEGINNING deliberately FLATTENED 1 of Ant Army's bots as well as Emerald Pain Wedge, whild Ant Army disabled Fe\/er. Ant Army also broke both hammers on NEW BEGINNING, so it was a pushing match for the most points.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
Ant Army won 9,076 to 6,023 (NEW BEGINNING) because it managed to get both remaining multibots under NEW BEGINNING's (castor armored) underside, where they racked up many points, but didn't do any damage.

I wonder why.
Woah, Redalert is so original
/sarcasm  :dumb)
Am I the only one that notices just how similar these two bots look?

I wonder why.
Or maybe it's because stock robots vary little from one another. Also, those two robots look nothing alike just because they are 36HS. That's like saying Apollo looks like Eruption.
Ugh, I hope the following doesn't count as backseat moderating/flaming, as I'm just making a point.
CNGH I don't get your point, this isn't just a "oh, it's just all stock bots look alike" sorta thing, Transistor is a blatant rip-off of Pip's bot.
Redalert, you might as well put a nail in your own coffin for drawing the comparison between the two bots. It's pretty sneaky considering you PM'ed Pip asking her to get the .bot file so that way you could ONLY fight against it, you didn't ask her if you could copy it and completely rip it off.
This reminds me of when LRA2 stole SurgicalStrike and reskinned it as his own entry in his tourney Terror Twisters.

Enough with the off-topic or I will mute you guys so hard people will mistake you for mimes.

Anyway, with a wedgeless design you should really go for a stronger drive. Ditch the pink and make the chassis tighter and you should be able to use redbirds.

Finally! Thanks, Pwnator.
Yes, I need better drive. You've got the best idea about that. Also, I used v1.0 to build this bot, since v1.4 wouldn't work (for some reason.) Because of this, I don't have blue snappers, which could provide me with an actual wedge opportunity.
Sounds like another reboot of JACKPOT! is at hand...

Ceceiliya (this is the name)- generic mini mace HS. 6 maces and DSA.

BW HS. Nothing too different here...

REALLY unique stack in this bot- nifty in a supervolt. Its theme's from Twilight just like the HW popup I posted before...

It's very effective and has a wedge.

Yeah, talking about Ironforge, if you are looking to play DSL-S Redalert, then Ironforge is more suited to Standard. Though you can still do DSL-S. Also, DSL is actually the mod itself, and DSL-S and DSL-IRL are the two metas in it. Standard is like Unrealistic, but a bit more realistic. While IRL is basically making a bot that look and function as close to a bot that could exist in real life as possible.

Also, for IRL only, you should get RA2CF (and maybe OBJRA2, though it's not mandatory, and learn BFE, which will help on certain building part, for it, as they are illegal in other metas) and DSC's IRL Packs first, as well as check out TheRoboteer's IRL Guide and people's DSL showcases that show their DSL-IRL bots.

How does your DSL fail? If you try opening it, and then the game only show the first pic before crashing, then you lost your cfg file for it. You can try copying the cfg file from any RA2 copy you have.

Separate post because I didn't AI these bots.

fast poker. Used slipperbottoms because it was underweight. It weighs 246.8kg.

WEIRD stack. 2 pinks that are visible through the topside. I didn't use BFE to do this. castor-armored hammer.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]    [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

This is NO TURNING BACK. It wound up looking like another of pip's bots, so I gave it a major reboot. It now has a small chassis and lots of snappers connecting the spinners, snowplows, and 2 of the drive motors to the chassis. It doesn't even look similar to Pip's bot now, which is what I want- a different design.

I did some more fights and had interesting results...
I was teamed up with Sweet Revenge against NEW BEGINNING and Tazer, and then Vapor and No End.

First, a rumble. I destroyed Tazer, and NEW BEGINNING smashed Tempest before a sudden havok flipped the juggernaut onto its side. NEW BEGINNING was driving on its side, and managed to win the fight. I survived.

Here, you see my bot attacking NEW BEGINNING.

Next, I fought with my HW EdWARd. I managed to obliterate No End, but lost because my team mate Sweet Revenge havoked after ripping a couple razors off Vapor. My popup was badly damaged, so I waited out the match in hopes of winning. Surprisingly, the other team won, but I survived.

Most stocks hammers work less as sticks with spikes and more like rakes. More weapons hit at once, and do more damage. Your BW and BattleChopper are funky.

Rebooted Artemis.

It's a popup that rupts for some reason, probably due to unnatural extender setups. It does a TON of damage and gets constant 1 hit KOs.

With that said, this should be a big hit for the next BOTM.

why are you still using y connectors on popups
Title: Re: Redalert's stock showcase
Post by: Redalert on November 27, 2018, 02:27:52 PM
They tend to cause razors to deliver more damage. If you have more than 2 razors, then round extenders are best. I tried both combos, and Y connectors just proved more useful on some popups.

no they don't they're gonna do the same amount of damage as two razors on extenders. all you're doing is wasting 2 kgs using them over round extenders on popups

ok, a few things ive noticed over your last few bot dumps

*you should never be using a wheel other than shiny hubs or rubber wheels (slipperbottoms if you absolutely need to). fatboys and n-12s are just wasted weight.
*grey bulb needs more weaponry and less drive. 12 razors is nothing on a middleweight hs, and you're wasting weight on the extender work - you could use one anchor and a pair of round extenders for that same setup.
*your angled poker thing is overpowered i think, or at least you're using more weight on batteries than you should be. re-arrange things so you can stick a nifty in there and try to upgrade the drive too. redbirds kinda suck
*i like the idea behind the snowplow popup, and i think there's some potential behind it. re-shape the chassis to eliminate extra space, and maybe swap the two snappers with a ddt. do you have one black or two?
*i'm sure you can rotate the black 90 degrees on your hammer and fit the rads in the chassis, then use the weight (or some clever black extender use) to angle the plows out a little bit (like you have on the popup) to improve its trapping ability. if you have weight after that, try to sneak a caster on the front. the t connector is wasted weight as well, you could use a sideways black extender instead.
*insectoid clone is pretty decent, but i'm like 90% sure emergency wedges are generally worse than small wedges when it comes to getting under things, just because they have more surface area.

you're definitely coming along as a stock builder, but you have a ways to go still. keep at it dude!

Other than that, I build my bots from scratch. They just wind up looking like other members' bots.

jesus christ stop posting so i can give you feedback

re: in plain sight
bunch of empty space you could cut out of the chassis. you only need the one nifty, since you're powering two motors. the iron spikes are in all honesty just hindering your wedge's effectiveness.

cut down to one piston, too. you can get that many weapons on the one. honestly i think the original had the better overall design, you just needed to work on the weapon system.

how heavy is tempest mini? two irons is almost nothing on a LW, i would cut down the drive and try to give it more weaponry. there's a bunch of LW face spinners out there with 8 razors, for reference

Sorry about the burst of posts...

Tempest mini's original version was 248.9kg. The new one's 245.7kg.
In Plain Sight was the most improved. It does use its wedges for flipping opponents, so it nees two nifties. The old one had a single nifty... Also, the irons stop the opponent on the new version, so it can poke the opponent.
Title: Re: Redalert's stock showcase
Post by: Badnik96 on December 01, 2018, 08:29:45 AM
ok but blue snappers suck at flipping. it'd be much more efficient to just run the one nifty and use the weight elsewhere. if you really want to use weapons as a sort of pinning rack, then i'd suggest making some weight for a rack of weapons at the top of the wedge.

your rammer's about as standard as a rammer gets, but it can definitely be optimized further. try a chassis like this:
(http://i.imgur.com/j6eNJ.jpg)
and see how much weight that saves you.

Post by: Badnik96 on December 03, 2018, 10:57:14 AM
the way youre mounting the wedge on the wammer-flipper makes it pretty bad (though i guess it doesnt really matter on a lw). you should also raise the wammer rack to the top of the wedge so the flipper can actually travel, and make the front of the wedge wide enough so that it doesnt get annihilated by hs

you could lower the chassis on your mw, and also use razors instead of irons. they do more damage which is vital for most gut rippers

theres no reason to use grannies on the hammer because you can use shinies instead. also get rid of that pink and stack the blacks so you can cut down on chassis space

you shouldnt need a smartzone to ai a sns, what .py are you using? also spiked clubs suck and you could definitely get two razors on there instead

why are you using mini wheels, especially on a beetleweight. remake the chassis so you can use shinies.

also i very highly doubt your "first ever armored lw popup" claim but theres a reason nobody does it, because it isnt necessary. rad drive is super slow for a lw popup and your chassis is narrow enough where hs will hit the sides and not the ramplate so its pretty useless

Actually, the LW popup does fairly well against HS because it strikes them head-on. It's also wide enough, but speed is a problem. The BW popup was trash from the beginning. It's getting replaced. The MW popup-breaker uses irons because it also rams with them. This is also to break off weapon racks on opponents.

The thwacker uses an OMNI binding. That's why it has the giant smartzone.

The HW hammer was underweight before I added Slipperbottoms.

Great ideas, though.

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.
Ok then, it seems you are ignoring feedback sometimes

Both of you are wrong. And Redalert did something inadvertently correct for the wrong reasons. Y-connectors are fine in this specific case since one disc can only hold so much weapons. They don't target HS or any other bots better than a 4-weapon FS, it's just weapons for the sake of more weapons.

However, the bigger issues are that it's not invertible and the wedges are too short.

ok ok what

even if you dont have 140cm extenders you can still make those wedges longer. 387kg gives you 11-12kg to play with which means you can make the wedges at least 40cm longer than they are

Okay, I see why. However, it works like a snare. The steep wedge is only designed to get bots close enough to the weapon. To take damage.
The hammer is designed for striking popups.

Losing the hammer. That’s why it has flipping irons. Although the flipping irons are crucial, the hammer is the most damaging. The flipping irons serve as the secondary weapon, damaging bots that manage to break that hammer.

Great idea about the hammer, though, 090901. It does need to be rebuilt so the extenders aren’t as exposed.

razors do more damage than irons and as such are better on popups like this, not to mention itll make your weapons more powerful with the reduced weight

The irons take more damage than razors. On a design like this, durability is key. I can’t tell you how funny it is when this bot snaps razors off of popups- it’s like whack-a-mole.

If the weapons were more protected- razors. Otherwise, irons aren’t that bad of an idea, since they can tolerate more damage.

I'm gonna ignore the less satisfactory bots and leave those for others to comment.

Your MW popup looks pretty great. I'd suggest swapping out the spike strips for ramplates since the DDTs are pretty exposed. An alternative would be to use the other orientation of the snapper (arm coming out of the rear and hidden AP facing the front) so that the weapon motors are protected by the chassis, but at the cost of a smaller firing arc.

Your Insectoid clone needs a bit more work. The reason it deals a lot of damage is because the ramplates hold the opponent back so the pistons are firing at close to maximum speed before making contact. So either push the weapon system back or the plows forward.

The LW popup can get away with a thinner chassis. Just attach the razors on the snapper2 and axle load the whole thing out so you can squeeze your wedge snapper2 right beside it. I'm unsure if the thinner chassis allows you to extend the wedge by 20cm, but it's worth a shot.

Okay. The LW popup will be rebooted, and the HW poker will be modified so the pistons are further back. (if possible..)
The MW popup weighs 398 kg. so it will be hard to modify it.

Yes, and no. WS need to be slightly large to be stable, and mounting a WS drive motor on a snapper causes havok explosions.

On other HS, Yes. It's very efficient. A lot of my bots in 1.0 have drive motors and weapon motors all crammed on a snapper.

Both baseplate anchors are up 3 notches.

III. Add the spinners. Both maces and irons will work on this design.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
The weapon bar at the front helps defend the motors. It also stabilizes the WS.

IV. Wiring- drive motor spins counterclockwise, and spinner motors rotate clockwise.

V. You now have 30+ kg. to do what you wish with. I added a ballast to keep the back end of the WS down.

VI. DONE.

Weight and efficiency is very important in stock, especially in the lower weight classes. Whenever you build a bot, take a look at your setups and see if you can use less extenders and connectors and what not. You've already mostly grasped the concept of chassis management, this is the next step.

I'd like to see you revisit the HW poker/Insectoid bot. Take the advice Pwnator suggested and try and make it better. That build alone shows me you can improve.

you are wasting so much weight with this garbage extender work and sloppy chassis. you're still getting outweaponed by fury even with the 1wd.

shrink your chassis around your components and get those weapon motors on a snapper. maybe put a plow on it too. those static weapons at the front can't be very good at protection.

Chassis is not sloppy.  yes it is, you've got way too much empty space especially around the anchors
I have a WS in Special Forces 2 that uses a tiny chassis and snappers. cool, this one's still bad

Another WS on the way... no one cares

Those static weapons are actually really good. A popup got under this bot... tried to hit the underside... and broke BOTH razor assemblies on the static weapons of this WS. if youre dumb and not aiing them with popup.py, sure. most people aren't.

any more excuses? fix your sh**

Okay. The reason why I try different bot styles is because I see too many clones. I look through THE best bot concepts and I see- generic, generic, generic, generic. I just want to try something different.

Scrap Daddy, there are 2 pokers like Insectoid in 2.0. One has already beem built, and the other is being worked on. Those are the improvements you’re seeing.

Wandering spinners need a slightly large chassis in order to be stable or... they’ll havok. Reason why normal HS can be built super-thin? They have two wheels- enough stability for the bot. Because typical WS only have one wheel, stability is a challenge.

One wheeled WS can use snappers. Disk WS can’t because they’ll enter spikeball mode.

You’re absolutely right about the extanders- they do look crappy.

On the other hand, a disk WS can be built just like a normal HS with the concept of a tight chassis.

That chassis has no protection. Especially with that weapon setup. Maybe you could use only 2 extenders to attach, drop down to a nifty and add some casters or a plow? It should also be trivial to make it invertible with a snapper layout.

you can save weight on some of those bots by cleaning up your extender work and getting rid of unnecessary stuff, for example you dont need that many baseplate anchors on the trinity sns as you can mount both the drive motor and piston on one anchor, similar to this:
(https://i.imgur.com/YxmRaJG.png)

the hammer looks good overall but you can once again save some weight by replacing the t connectors on the hammer arms with extenders attached with their side aps (the same applies to the vs with its t connectors), and would benefit from having the plows attached in a v shape to make trapping easier. the vs would also benefit from a wider wheelbase.

One of my bots in my Ai pack has that extender style- look closely at Evader from the team Awkward in 1.0.

Saw this design, built a similar, but different replica of it.

This isn't my best batch of bots, but the side hammer, HW and LW popups, and the drum spinner really stand out as good in my opinion.
Title: Re: Redalert's stock showcase
Post by: Pwnator on January 29, 2019, 06:26:17 PM
Nah not really.

LW popup needs a shallower chassis wedge, HW popup's setup is inefficient, and the drum while clean doesn't look quite cohesive. I'd suggest shinies and Snapper IIs on the last one.
Title: Re: Redalert's stock showcase
Post by: Dreamcast on January 30, 2019, 04:02:51 PM
You should find a way to stabilize your drum without having as much open chassis sticking out. Horizontal weapons are already good at killing drums, but you could also be side hammer food as is.

the casters on the drum are really hurting your wedge effectiveness

you could definitely cut down on chassis space and probably get shinies on there too, take a look at click' drumblebee larva for inspiration

side hammer does look pretty slick
Title: Re: Redalert's stock showcase
Post by: Redalert on January 31, 2019, 08:10:14 AM
I knew you would say that. They actually prevent the drum from hitting the ground, and the wedges still hit the ground.

Okay. This bot may be mmmmmmmmeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssssaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy, but it has a multitude of weapons, plus a good wedge making it surprisingly good! It can defeat bots of all types because of this.

MW poker. 392kg. underweight. Pretty damaging, but slow. DSA.

BW HS.

DSA.

Rebuilt N00b. Not so much of a n00b bot now, eh?
9 razors, DSA, 395.7kg.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  


Okay, I just invented a new bot type, inspired after the first of its kind- Kate's Revenge.
I call it- the Snare.
Snares are a combination of a popup and a hammer. They strike both the topside and underside of a bot at the same time.
Snares are powerful, but have trouble self-righting. (at least most of them do.)

...with that, here's the first Snare in 2.0.

Okay, I'm back for a little bit, and I have some answers about your comments.

Spock has those 2 extra irons on the sides, to take up remaining weight (honestly, it's so compact, there's no room for extra components, even with hax mode.)
Spock actually has 4 Snapper IIs inside it- 2 for the spinners, and 2 for the wedges.
Fact #3- Spock's heavily armored front makes it be able to "bulldoze" opponents, and the multitude of irons also includes a small group of them on a piston, which is used to punch at HS chassis once the spinners are locked together and stalled.

You are correct- Spock is vulnerable on the sides, but the spinners protect the sides a bit.

True. That's a Wandering Spinner, known as a "360" WS, because it uses the chassis as a wheel.
Remember- a WS is a bot that uses its weapon to both damage opponents, and bounce off walls, and runs consistently without stopping.
A basic WS has wheels, but no 360 WS has wheels!

While it fights great, it's very difficult because the snappers cause it to flex, and havok.

big improvement here. use the other ap on the rads so the tribars have more reach.

you could also probably use one blue snapper here instead of two greens and save weight for two more irons on that fs

Sadly, I don't have blue snappers at the moment, because v1.4 crashed, and I'm using an older RA2 game.
I will see if I can get 1.4 to work in the future, however...

If I had those blue snappers when I built this bot, I would have definetely used them instead of Snapper2's, though.

DIGGER IV isn't much different from DIGGER III, it's just better.
I'll post it when it's done!

The Stock version of X-STORM.
Good at pinning opponents, and then delivering constant, repetitive blows with the hammer, though the face spinners on the front are what win the matches, actually.

DIGGER IV has that kind of design, so expect that whenever DIGGER IV shows up on my stock showcase.
I will definitely try that, it's a good concept for a FS.

Here' Gyser is seen climbing up the wall, as AW-W.A.V.E., AW-Drone, and AW-Ranger clash below. The winner was AW-Drone, surprisingly!

Next, AW-Frost, AW-Baby Bear, AW-Drone, and AW-Critical clashed.
AW-Critical almost won until it was flipped over, and thus, AW-Frost surprisingly won! (AW-Frost is a really good AW in 2.0.)

Here, AW-WTS takes the floor, and destroys AW-Baby Bear, AW-Water Spout, and AW-Frost, thus ending Round 1 of the 2.0 AW exhibition.

Dumping off some old bots, and some reboots...
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
This bot's actually not bad, despite being rather old (I made it 7 months after I started playing RA2)
I rebuilt the hammer to use irons instead of razors.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
Paint job's not too shabby either.

  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
MW poker. I like this bot, because it bares a strong front against HS.

Okay, this popup's really good- it has plenty of defense, a lot of razors (count- 10), and great wedges
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
...but it weighs 699.7 kg. That's 100 KG underweight.
I'm already considering stacking the supervolts, and removing the pinks, in order to make room for more ram plates on baseplate anchors.
It's already relly compact, which is one thing I really like.
Any other ideas?

This is one of my best popups. 6 razors, 397.9 KG, DSA, 1 supervolt, and 2 pinks.

The BW doesn't need 3 razors. Ditch one and trim off the excess space on the wheels then jam another pink in.

You can also make the chassis on your HS smaller. The body of the servo should be flush against the Nifty, then build the whole setup using 3 20cms (the off-center servo should absolutely make use of this). That might net you enough to upgrade your weapon breaker to an iron or mace.

N12s? Be ause no other wheel would reach the ground! (Which I strongly dislike.)

Glad you like them!

I still fail to see how Earth Drill II is illegal. I used Hax mode, Stacking, and the axle-loading glitches to make it...

Okay, sorry about that... just got a little annoyed with 1.4...

New bot. Funkiest hax mode glitch I ever did. EFFEing the maces was a pain!

I used Hax Mode to build the chassis, and then the effect wore off, and I used EFFE to stack the maces and razor tips.

Here's a special add-on to 3.0.
These are all parts to a single multibot called Junkyard Squad. All the bots come in different colors so you can pair them up however you want.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
There are a total of 24 combinations you can make. (red, red / red,orange, etc.)
Junkyard Squad either fights alone against other BW bots with one cluster bot, or against bots MW or above with 2 cluster bots.

Each bot has rubber wheels (too many beetleweights have shiny hubs), 3 razors, and plastic armor.
They all weigh 174.6 kg without the SZs.
