It this meant to be showcase just for logic or for gadgets and things generally?

yep, just a showcase for new stuff. logic, vehicles, computers, clocks, and that sort of stuff, just has to be innovative.

Finally, a way I can get more people to notice my creations! :p Anyways, I have a "new" hover system I want to show, which I created within a week of LBP2's release but not very many people have noticed. I already have a level with a simple hovertank demo, giving the tank as a prize after, and another level explaining my system. I think the best way to show my hover system is to demonstrate my experimental hover tank I created a couple months ago, but never published. However, I use my new prototype tank mainly for another special system: destroying ANY solid object with holo, without placing logic on the targets, as well as destroying all other objects behind the one already destroyed :devious: (up to a certain distance). I call these special projectiles "burrowers" & "semi-burrowers", the burrowers capable of destroying multiple objects whereas the semi-burrower destroying the first object it hits.
So, I want to enter both my hover system and my burrower projectiles to the showcase :)

Your tank can destroy ANYTHING without logic? That sounds dangerous.

Well, not exactly. Holo can't be destroyed, except by a destroyer on that holo. My projectiles themselves have logic on them, but I won't disclose how I got them to destroy objects (secret! :p ) It's not a glitch either, but there's only one way my burrowers can't destroy objects (another secret! :p lol) But here's a hint: it requires a certain logic piece with a particular setting (not the indestructible setting)... My tank also has to be able to hit its target as well, so it's not very easy to destroy small & quick targets, so it's not too dangerous :devious:

I would love to see the Tank if you don't mind sharing. It sounds very complex and fun.

Shuriken_Star
06-29-2011, 05:07 AM
It's not too logically complex, and not very visually detailed, but I used neon material for the tank so it can have some visual effects when shooting or charging a shot. It has a main cannon, primarily used for firing burrower rounds; dual turrets on the top of the tank for electric projectiles & a chargeable semi-burrower function; a third center turret with a range of 180-degree rotation, with a primary semi-burrower fire & secondary rapid-fire (electric projectiles). The final set of weapons are the dual missile launchers, which follow a controllable cursor & fly straight after passing the cursor. The tank is also fully capable of a 4-person crew, the driver capable of controlling the main cannon & dual turrets (or another can take control of the dual turrets after the driver has entered the driving controlinator), a third can control the central turret, and a fourth can use the dual missile launchers. I haven't perfected the temporary-homing missiles yet, since they crash into each other if they turn too sharply (3 sets of 2 pairs, 6 missiles per launcher, for a total of 12 missiles launched at a time), but they can hit anything around the tank if guided smoothly. My tank can also climb walls & ceilings, as do all vehicles that use my hover system (correctly at least), and all the weapons continue to function properly upside-down, even the missiles (which have specific boundaries, preventing the cursor from getting too far from the tank.

Surely this would be a material changer set to non-sticky. :p I toyed around with this in the LBP2 beta, I didn't think it was a big secret.

You could make them turn slower

grrr... :moody: oh well, I knew at least one person would find out. Either way, I still have another way to destroy even non-stick material! :devious: (not very effective yet, but it'll get there...)

Shuriken_Star

They aren't very agile if I made them slow or turn slow, that's the point cuz I'm planning to make a level that would require you to guide the missiles through a small, curving passage & hit a target. At their current speed, making them turn slow would require quite a bit of space above the tank in order to curve the missiles behind the tank, & I'm not gonna keep the the tank out in the open the whole time either. I'll fix it the next time I'm on...

I would imagine the tank your talking about would have to have some sort of emitter material destroyer cause I made a scorpion holo attacker as well with that upgrade hehehe.

Shuriken_Star
06-30-2011, 04:40 PM
Only my semi-burrower has a destroyer on itself, which functions similar to a sticky grenade, but it's made of holo material. My burrower doesn't have a destroyer on it, with more logic to it, which allows it to go through multiple objects & destroy them in succession (without stopping or slowing down).

great news! i have E-mailed MM and asked it we could have a crown for the grand prize! lets cross or finger that they read it!!

Zero10100
07-01-2011, 01:18 AM
Let's hope so. Most likely not. Isn't the crown just for official contests and other "exceptional" people?

deschuttes2
07-02-2011, 06:37 PM
thats true. but if we keep doing this every 2 months or so it might get big and stuff! lets hope this gets big and awsome!

well good and bad news, the good news is that MM answered the e-mail! bad news is they said no. lol, well it looks like we will need to think of a prize

Well, think about it: LBPC's already got a contest crew, & they are the ones that get the prize crowns. Maybe you should suggest the contest to them if you really want a crown as a grand prize.

the crowns not that big of a deal, the whole point of this is to get people shown in this sea of spam that is lbp. lol. but we need entries! how can we get through thorugh the spam wall if this is super small?

I'll join. Add me, mostly cuz I will forget, lol: "Shuriken_Star". Put LBP tech show in the friend rqst so I know where it's from.

Well shucks, I wish the deadline was later haha. I am making a blackjack for 1 to 4 players against a dealer...that is actually semi intelligent so it wont bust every time or stop at like 15. It won't be done by then. My roulette table is far to large to be a gadget haha or just a logic. tech showcase sounds like an awesome idea though. But i suppose its doing all the smaller scale stuff not the large scale type of thing. Wish I had something to enter.

thats fine! join join! i want joins! lol, sorry for being gone for so long, i was mountain biking for a week. yep we take big stuff too, we evan have comeo-iroc (is that spelled right?) showing off his cars. i blackjack table sounds great. i love blackjack, i would love to test it!

Hey deschuttes, I'm nearing completion of yet another hover tank, & this one is the most realistically detailed so far. It's a massive hover tank (5 layers) with dual railguns & its projectiles can destroy anything that even gets near its path of trajectory. Its projectiles can also be set to home into a tracer (secondary weapon) for increased accuracy. It will also be able to fire swarms of missiles (still working on it) & will be guide-able mid-flight. It'll be my best hover tank yet.

Hey, i'd like my GameExpo to get a little more noticed, mind if i enter?

You've read my post about it, that's how i found out this page.

It says my PSN in the side bar (<--)

Hey Deschuttes, I haven't been on LBP2 for a while (too busy playing Battlefield 3) but my giant tank is having trouble hovering correctly... apparently my hover system won't work that efficiently on a large scale... i'm re-designing my hover system now, which might take a while, so send me a message on PSN if u want my tank in ur tech show cuz i probably won't see it here

I might be interested to show off my demo shooter level useing a lot of the new goodies from the move pack. Sticker pannels weapons that face the right direction and all.

Ive also built a few drones that auto target objects and a couple hover tanks.

I likely won't have my gadget finished in time, so I'll have to watch this one. If I do manage to finish it, though, I will be sure to turn it in to you. Good luck with the show!
