Imo rawbots needs balljoints (that also works as roll surfaces)

Yeah, ball joints would be really useful. Could have made the cyclic control on my helicopter a lot more compact.

I edited a bp and caused a weird glitch: the bp continuously replicates like a cancerous cell.

I'm guessing the physics engine wasn't too happy about several dozen parts trying to occupy the same space.

This is a bot I mode for one of the old challenges. It scoops up grenades and carries them in the box at the back.

It wasn't but the original bp was only a few parts.

Interesting, making a shovel thats working well must have been tricky.

IIRC, it required accurate positioning of the scoop, but the scoop closes around the grenades so they don't have a chance to roll away. The rear wall of the scoop is fixed, and the front and bottom sections rotate on the end set of elbows.

This is another part of a challenge. It's the pidgeon automated target bot from the 'catch the pidgeon' challenge.

Since damage done to parts that are made out of subparts like motors, elbows and pistons seems not to transmit between the halves, I've made a lava explorer from marvins ants that can safely run over hot surfaces.

Spoiler: show

Cool. It'll be interesting to see if anyone can take advantage of this effect to make indestructible armour sections.

This is another aircraft based on the pidgeon, intended for intercept other aircraft.

because all the weapons type can go through armor somewhat, you'd need amror thats not only sturdy, but thick.  That means you must aim for the unlimited weight class, to make an armor full of gaps.  Thats going to be tricky, to say the least.

With that said, the pistons seems to be the most promising part to do this, you could have 2 or 3 interwoven layers.  Might work against low energy plasma shots.

Yeah, armour in general tends to be fairly bulky and full of holes. I was thinking that indestructible armour could be used in small sections around critical/excessively vulnerable  parts.

Here's another, bigger plane. This one appears to have a basic HUD.

That gets up to a pretty impressive speed once it gets going; certainly one of the better walkers I've seen.

If there was an easy way to detect slipping feet, walkers would probably work a lot better.

That image might have come out smaller than you had intended, but from what I can see it looks like it should (and does) fly well.
