I thought I'd make a thread asking the community;
What would you do with sackbots when LBP2 comes?

Myself, i'd re-create the deathstar with little sackbot Storm Troopers. :P

Depends on how flexible they are.
If I can program different animations for different cases, get them to use gadgets/switches, and can attach emitters and cameras to them, then by all means they will become the most important thing in LBP2 to me.

Of course, zombie game.

Make a small revolution with maybe 3 or 4 of them against a giant, evil creator bent on making Sackboys' lives miserable.

Hmm, gonna have me a slave army :kz: Seriously how cool would it be to program sackbots to construct your level for you?! Or at least chip in :p If there's ever some highly meticulous placement task I'm so gonna set up logic so sackbots can do it for me, even though that would probably take longer lol

@jjmusicman I am trying to make zombies in LBP1 right now and my god it's a pain! Layer collisions are a huge restriction for walkers. It's either have them come in a line or hop 1 legged and have them bypass each other which isn't exactly easy. Sackbots will make the art of zombification much more enjoyable.

Probably make hard levels where you get help from one sackbot. One that's intelligent.

I was hoping to make a Cold War type of level (though LBP2 will have beaten me to it) with marching Sackbots saluting the Soviet Union :D

If it's possible, I'd like to make a sort of squad based gameplay where the bots all have AI, but you can take over control of any of them and switch on the fly like Lego Star Wars. As an added bonus, it would be cool if you could give the other members of the squad basic instructions: "wait here," "form up," "attack," "hide," "run away from the giant freakin mech!" (of course there'll be mechs)

RobotCrash
05-21-2010, 04:41 AM
I am gonna make a vehicle that is basically a direct control seat on a platform that is set on a group of sackbots. The DC seat will control the sackbots, So they are the legs to move it. Hahaha

:gasmask:

05-21-2010, 02:00 PM
I'm gonna stick one in a box and program it to pull levers, press switches and grab stuff, it'll be a whole new type of logic. Just image a little sackbot running a whole level hehe he, or she for that matter, would be so cute, running around frantically.

LBPC-oriented RPG.

Yes, I'm calling it early. Special attacks, cool cinematics, deep storyline, and at least THREE members as big, fearsome bosses.

Oh yeah. It's going to be epic.

Also, just generally messing about. I really want to make some sackbots that can have interchangeable routines etc, so they make even better NPCs.

A multiplayer level. And if you happen to not have two players, then you can play through with a Sackbot!

I'll probably finally build the pyramid level I've been planning for so long. Only now I can make slaves to build the thing on the outside while you progress trhough the level. Finally resulting in a revolution where they help you defeat their master.
Might also make an arena where they battle each other to death and you can bet bubbles on the outcome :)

Hmm well apart from SPARTA!!!! I was thinking something along the lines of George Orwell's 1984 as a base; it just depends on however many sackbots I can fit into the thermometer... For those of you who by some curse have never read the book, I have a link from wiki:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nineteen_Eighty-Four#Political_geography

As I said, it depends how many sackbots I can fit into a level. You (the player) will obviously be Winston Smith (the main character) and you will basically go through the events of the book, though I may have to miss some out for fear of censorship or overheating.

If possible, I will have muses latest album in the background, as pretty much all the songs are based on 1984 (United states of EURASIA, and there are ridiculously plagiarized plot lines and ideas from the book in both the resistance and uprising, as well as the mention of the thought police in the Resistance :0)

Tell me what you think :)

Exactly the first thing that sprung to my mind :) A idea to create a puzzle like level where sackbots walk to their deaths and you need to try and stop them :D

And also on a more personal note.... can't believe you still have that ICEY avatar :p (good times :))

Tmjtk
05-24-2010, 05:28 PM
Another somewhat good idea I thought of is a sackcannon, or a sack catapult that emits the sackbot and throws it.
Like those pumpkin chucking contests. xD

Haha, that means nothing until the game is out mate, you can't just go 'dibs on the rpg' idea :P

On another note...

Would it be possible to create a level where you control two sackbots with one seat?

Sackbot 1 :

Left stick = movement
L1 = Jump
L2 = Grab

Sackbot 2 :

Right stick = Movement
R1 = Jump
R2 = Grab

Could make for some interesting puzzles if its possible.

a level where your aim is to find a way by pulling certain switches to kill every sackbot. If you wan't to restart, you must kill yourself, go to the scoreboard and restart the level, mwahahaha.

Building on Sehven's idea, I'd say you are venturing through a factory or suchlike with, say, four sackbots. Each sackbot has a certain ability, and you have to use them to solve puzzles. The DCS would allow you to change control to a different sackbot, and all sackbots must advance in order to solve the next puzzle. I have no idea how easy or difficult that would be to carry out, but it would make for a very interesting gameplay experience.

Bioshock 2 level, with Subject Delta as a large sackbot with control seat. The ability to scale sackbots should allow for filling out all the size differences in the enemies, even sackbot little sisters!

Seeing as you can link a DCS to pretty much anything, this seems plausible. I'd love to see this done!

As for me, I'm going to make zombie leprechauns and a ninja chicken saving all the other normal chickens from a battery farm. The ninja chicken is a large sackbot with a DCS and the normal chickens are just ordinary sackbots set to follow when you save them :P (oddly, that was my mum's idea...).

(Ok I got a couple Ideas from Super Mario Galaxy 2 but you know...)

You could have them help or guide you if you'r stuck somewhere.

You can use them as a racing opponent (Easy, medium, hard.)

Clones that follow you and if they touch you, you get damaged.

Partner that helps solves puzzles

Building helpers

Put Direct Control Seats on them so you can be bigger (or smaller :3) to move big and heavy things or get through small spaces.

Maybe make them the main player and YOU help them :\

Testers for like roller coasters or mini-games that you need 2-4 players for.

Or you can always make them slaves, torchure them, or just shoot them out of a cannon for the fun of it :D

Yup, 'cuz if you claim an idea, then nobody else is allowed to do it. First, if you really don't want people "stealing your idea," maybe don't post them on a forum for all to read ;) . Second, instead of worrying about other people using "your idea," why not focus on making your level so good that nobody else will be able to copy it (I defy ANYBODY to make a mech that can do what mine (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?27374-Most-Advanced-Bipedal-Mech-in-LBP-VT-5-Lightning) does!) Or, you know, just don't worry about it: if someone uses "your idea" and makes a better level than you, now you can play the better level.


Building on Sehven's idea, I'd say you are venturing through a factory or suchlike with, say, four sackbots. Each sackbot has a certain ability, and you have to use them to solve puzzles. The DCS would allow you to change control to a different sackbot, and all sackbots must advance in order to solve the next puzzle. I have no idea how easy or difficult that would be to carry out, but it would make for a very interesting gameplay experience.

Hey! No fair! That was MY idea! Nobody else can ever use it even though it's been used in several other video games in the past.

I'm hoping it won't be too difficult to make it work similar to the Lego games, where players can jump in and out of any of the characters, and a second, third or fourth player can drop in any time and take over one of the characters. We don't know much about lbp2 logic, so I have no idea how difficult it'll be to implement. I know it would be a HUGE pain to try to pull off using lbp1 tech (even ignoring the fact that we have no sackbots or dcs's: just the logic to control the switching from A.I. to another control system would be tough, and even moreso with multiple control systems).

[edit] Then again, if there isn't an easier way, it may be possible to use a system of "relay sackbots" and auto-enter control seats. Instead of giving the players' dcs's direct control of the characters' bots, they could control other, offscreen bots. When you make the bot exit one control seat, he'll automatically get sucked into another, thereby switching which onscreen character he's controlling, and preventing him from taking over a character that's already being driven by another player. I'm making certain assumptions here (assuming that when you're in range of multiple auto-enter dcs's, the game will just stick you in one, and assuming that if you exit one and another is in range, you'll get sucked into it) and I may be wrong, but it seems to me that the logic is mostly sound.

Gurren Lagann Sackbot anyone? :D

by the way, anyone know if you can change what they 'follow' midlevel? (eg. in left 4 dead, zombies normally chase you, but if you throw a pipe bomb the regular zombies will follow it until it explodes) I want to try and recreate that with the zombies normally following the player sackbots, the pipebomb having a 'waypoint' on, and the zombies chasing it if it's in close range (when activated)

I'm hoping you can use them for advanced logic sequences. Hopefully you can glue a switch or two on it.

Sackbots have their own circuit boards, so you can put plenty of logic on them.

I was planning A RATHER SACKY ADVENTURE!

It's a series of levels, minigames and survival challenges.
A survival challenge i've planned already is RUN!!! A SACKBOT!
yeah... it has an electrified sackbot with a massive urge to hug you. Combined with other obstacles, a gradually shortening platform and 2 tubes which deposit more hugging electric sackbots! (no more than 3 on screen though)

I'm going to be laughably selfish with them - a level idea I'm having would be my devil character's domain, and Sackbots could be lethalized imps that chase after the player or something.

If it's possible, I'd like to make a sort of squad based gameplay where the bots all have AI, but you can take over control of any of them and switch on the fly like Lego Star Wars. As an added bonus, it would be cool if you could give the other members of the squad basic instructions: "wait here," "form up," "attack," "hide," "run away from the giant freakin mech!" (of course there'll be mechs)
Yes you can do that. watch this video and in it you see a strategy game where you can give them different commands

I'm definitely into the idea of sackbot slavery.

As for my unique ideas, I have some strange ones. Sackbot furniture anyone? Buildings made of Sackboty-amazingness?
I think so.

I'm also interested in making sack ninjas for a beat-em-up.

A sort of sackbot survival has been stuck in my mind.
Imagine being in a sort of bomb survival - esqe level. You quickly run into a bunker. Soon after, the level goes dark. Then hear little footsteps, and ready your trusty paintinator. A bright light emits in the end of the bunker oppisite you. They fire the first laser out of theyre creatinators, and you spring into action.
Thats what can see me making pretty fast out of the blue. :p

Ultimate Spiderman levels. You can play as Spiderman and Venom.
As Venom, you have a lot of health, you can jump extremely far and high, and you can shoot slime bullets. The only downside is you need to feed on civilians to stay alive because your health is constantly depleting.
As Spidey, you are faster, you can swing around with the grappling hook, and shoot web balls (white paint) at enemies. You have less health than Venom.

I love Sackbots.

Make them wear a creatinator that emitts plasma balls, put a paint switch in them, put some soldier clothing and voilá! Fresh enemies to be spawned and put in the level. (could also make some that launch rockets :p )

make neat little platoons of them, 10 a platoon, 2 rocket launches, 6 paintball guns, and 2 graple hook and wire each set up to a DCS.. build a level, good idea?

I Am Legend style sackbots that are creepy and don't wake up until you shine a light on them, then follow you angrily towards your house :p

I bet theres gonna be a ton of sackbot zombie survivals.

I think im gonna make levels where you can run extra fast and jump extra high using sackbots and DCS

:love: Maybe a Beat 'em Up level, in which you have 3 friends (sackbots of course) and each one of them have different abilities, like, one could be a mage, the other one a warrior, and the other one a ranger or priest. :D
The enemies would be sackbots, too.
OH! and maybe you can choose the sackbots' classes... can't wait !

Make a "Metal Slug" fashioned level, and dress one sackbot as a walking vehicle and put a DCS. :p

AI characters, actors, and sometimes even test subjects for playing around in Create Mode.

Also, this could SERIOUSLY help for school projects, like for the time I took some LBP snapshots, printed them and told a snippet of a book with it.
