Get my PSN (Ninteen45) me for the "box" The place where your bot should fit in.

Peachy floaty.

Impact bombs
Trigger bombs
Metal tools (EX: Metal hammer, Metal scoop.)

Use any shape style you want.

Motors and other:
Can use any thing as such, but motors must be at a tightnes of 8.
Pistons must not extend beyond the "box".
Trusters must be as default.
Bolts and wobble bolts can be any tightness.
You can choose visibility on everything.
No emitters.
You can take up a maxumum of 3 bars on the therometer.
Pistons can be any length, as long as the fit in the box fully extended.

Must be activated by a switch.
Can use any gate (EX: And, Or and If.)

Send me a message containing creation file and logic gates if any.

(Looking for 16 or 8.)

hey this sounds cool. would take part but in disney world till wednesday so i may take part if that isnt too late. however this may not go too well if u dont have xp prizes... u probably cant afford it. i would buy you the ability but cant here so i can buy you a pack next week if no one else does.

05-22-2009, 09:22 PM
Noo need for a buy, I'll post the prizes later.

Any rules on emitters?
Can I search for the other bot(s) some way?
What kind of arena?

05-22-2009, 10:37 PM
Whoops, forgot the emitters... Only bombs and unlimited emits, but only if reacting to a switch?

ALL entries are private, but you can make them public...

I mean while the bots are trying to blow each other up, can I use sensors to find the other bot (that has a key on it) or do I have to just mindlessly spam impacts everywhere?

05-23-2009, 12:52 PM
well, you can choose both options.

Like, say, you could make a ramming scoop that wins by pushing opponents into walls and pits, or an axe like creation with a impact bomb that hammers opposing creations within range. You can do what ever you like, as long as it fits the rules.

Edit: Emitters are no longer used, by popular demand.

ATERNATIVE to emitter,

just make a box inside your bot with a door on the front, and a missile inside, when the door opens it triggers the missile to fly out and hit whatever is in front

05-24-2009, 02:45 PM
You can do anything, like I said.

Seriusly, anyone entering?

05-24-2009, 02:52 PM
I'd like to, but there must be a rule of keys on the robots... And a template to see the arena. And dude, why should pistons only be in the box? And what is the box' size? Pistons should be able to go outside the box, just not start outside it.

05-24-2009, 05:12 PM
The box is in a level, one of two I made for this tourney.

Creations have two keys, usually on the frontal area of them.

I've posted the template for the arena in a match example, check it out. (PSN: Ninteen45)

Piston's don't start outside the box at all. Lemmie check the rules...

05-24-2009, 06:59 PM
Well then, I'm in. :) But you should be able to build your systems outside the arena...

05-25-2009, 04:07 PM
Outside? the "BOX" is a guideline, nothing to do with the arena...

05-25-2009, 06:38 PM
The bot goes in the box. The logic goes wherever you want.


05-25-2009, 09:28 PM
Correct. The logic gates aren't really counted as parts of the bot.

05-26-2009, 02:13 PM
Aww, dude, there isn't even a grid on the box, I can't work without a grid!

05-26-2009, 03:38 PM
Add one. Just don't edit the size of the box.

05-26-2009, 04:29 PM
Dude, it doesn't work that way, the box needs to be inside a grid, otherwise it's hard to fit your robot perfectly inside. I'm not participating in a contest without a gridded template. -.-

05-27-2009, 05:09 PM
um, the level isn't copylocked, you can make it IN the box... And there is a thing called scaling...

05-27-2009, 06:11 PM
Omfg, I'm out.

05-27-2009, 08:54 PM
I'm having to leave, I can't edit my posts, I have to refresh 6 times. The code hates me. Sorry for such a short stay.

05-31-2009, 04:27 PM
Locked due to the fact that the creator can no longer host the contest.
