How many swings can it dish out? Mine can only muster around 4-5 before the arm fails to retract due to using 140 cms.

I think around the same, but I think it swings faster with the shorter length from testing.

Also...


i regret not resizing the image before submitting >.<

Yeah.  It has been updated recently cause I read some of the responses in the voting thread, and it's got a few updates:

 


It seems to do a little bit better since the irons can catch bots and help gut-rip along the way.  Doesn't seem bad overall, though I'm still not sure if it's better or worse to use snowplows.

I feel like the second is the better robot. I'm interested in hearing why number one is better. To me, it was like putting Bear Claws on Void.

Okay, so a couple years back, I wanted to help get the door in helping with ReStocked.  An AI pack that is meant to upgrade the old Stock AI to a competitive meta.  Basically, the idea would to help reorganize and update bots from multiple builders at the time for the pack since I never liked how incomplete the original release or the update was.  Some bots were either reskins of other bots from other AI packs, or just not very good in general.  Later down the road, I kinda just lost interest in stock and kinda just let this project collect dust effectively.  Later on, after some inspiration came back, and sadly most bots I had ready to go were lost from file transferring.  So once the creative spark came back, I then decided to completely overhaul the AI pack, and rebuild every bot from scratch.  Most retain the original design of each bot originally in the Older ReStocked pack, while some I kinda had to take some creative liberties and kill two birds with one stone by giving a similar style while trying to give variety.  So with that in mind, here's pretty much the bots I have ready so far:



If you need a close up of any bot, then just let me know then.

Assuming y'all are cool with me doing this and would like to see this released, then I would love to hear that.  If so, then I gotta get myself to AI'ing everything and testing it as well.  This is probably going to be one of, if not, my last biggest projects for Stock in general, so I hope to at least give out a real swan song for stock, if that makes any sense.

The MW hammers feel kinda same-y, IMO. Would like to see one of them look like the old Iceberg (caster rack).

I like your take on the pokers, and BOT-CHOY looks absolutely amazing.

Agreed. They all look nice but I really like what you did with Lil Dog and Bot Choy.

That's fair.  I just wasn't sure how to get variety initially.  Wasn't sure which one to do initially since Iceberg was represented with the ice picks and awkward size, and Bushido for the sleeker design with swords.  Though I did find a way to incorporate it into C.R.U.S.H. so I hope I managed to get something good out of it:

 


Now testing was kinda tough since I only tested against the newest Fury (the one with maces) and it one once out of like fifty-some matches.  Probably not even a fair competition at times, tho that might be the fact that the new Fury just kinda kicks the crap out of everything.  Hopefully it can take on bots like the new Tornado anyway.
