Read this: https://gametechmods.com/forums/index.php/topic,5019.0.html
And this: http://beetlebros.gametechmods.com/ra2techs.htm
Try to tell us more about the bots, what's inside (inside pictures), what armour (DSA hopefully) you used etc.
LW: Built to the weight limit= good
       Bad wheels, no weapon, large chassis=bad
HW: Not built to the weight limit, use of angle/T extenders, overly large chassis=bad
        Using irons and maces=good

There's more but I'm sure someone will mention them.
Better than GK since 2009.
I think SM is a pretty cool guy, eh builds unicycle-bots and doesn't afraid of anything

Thats great, thanks

First of all, welcome to the forums :D

Always build to the weight limit, use the full weight to make your bot as good as possible
Shiny hubs are the best wheels, always try to use them (no wheels are any more grippy than others)
Nice choice of weapons though, razor tips, iron spikes and maces are the only good ones
Round extenders are the best, try not to use any other kind of extender when possible, (none are any more durable than others)
And try to make your chassis as compact as possible, to save weight, and always use DSA:
 - don't ever click on the armour tab, this will give your bot DSA armour
 - DSA armour is as light as aluminium, but stronger than steel!
 - (It stands for "Double Strength Aluminium)

I am trying my best but I do not know what to add or replace and I did use steel. I can show another robot in a minute but can I just say that I am normally not good at buliding. And I do not want to bulid beast-like robots but realistically good robots..

You might want DSL if this is the case, because in reality, "beast like robots" are all your gonna get or face in stock.

Ok sorry I meant as in like 4 horizontal spining blades with 16 maces or something like that (this is just my opinion so please dont get angry for those who like them). I want to build any type of robot in stock and I am not a fan of DSL so Ill just try my best with what I can do.

You don't want to use steel armor because it's heavier and weaker than the special DSA armor. Don't apply any armor to your bot. That's it. If you ignore the armor tab, you can get armor that's as light as Aluminum, yet stronger than steel.

Also, I see you are using castor armor in the back. Castor armor is good, but it's better to put it in the front. Also, that bot could use a wedge, preferably one mounted on a DDT burst motor.

Do you mean stuff like text speak because I did not know. And like I said I will get that done more for tomorow oh and apart from this topic should I go onto other pages about other topics or should I wait until I get my reputation to different weight? ( I am the questioning type as well) :question: :question: And for my first impression I like people helping me as long as there arent people who keep saying until you get it right and Im just saying. And finally have anyone heard of Northern Ireland :bigsmile:.
I think your our only Northern Irish member. You complete our British isles 5 :gawe:

Not strictly. We've got at least one from Scotland, England, Wales, N.Ireland and the Republic of Ireland now, though. Might make the next Home Nations tournament I run slightly complicated, though. =]

It's fine, though, I'm a bit busy with university at the moment. I'll try and wait until I've got some free time, then I might consider making a second version. I think the first version's still up somewhere in General Discussion.

For the moment, I'd focus on improving your machines here, though. Few general pointers to help you along.

Nifty batteries are almost exclusively used on Lightweights. Blackvolts for above, Pinks for below. As a rule of thumb, there can be exceptions.

The best weapons to use are maces, irons and razors, due to their lack of "normals", and they cause damage with any part of them. Axe heads are good on rammers if used correctly.

You'll want to focus all your weaponry towards the front of your machine, as that's what'll be pointed at the opponent most of the time.

Shiny Hubs are the best wheels to use due to their low weight. Rubbers and Slipperbottoms (Grannies) can also be used in some circumstances when ground clearance becomes an issue.

Don't click on the Armour tab at all, and you will receive DSA. It's the weight of aluminium, but stronger than steel. Very, VERY useful.
