General Discussion / Its Been Fun. - Deadmans note
« on: April 29, 2016, 03:46:00 am »
Howdy guys. I've got some bad news, real life decided to roundhouse kick me in the face, and I have to sell my computer. I don't know when I'll be able to afford another, it could be a year or even two. So I'm pretty much out of the game so to speak.

Its been cool setting up this little forum and getting in touch with all you folks once again. I had fun playing rawbots for a good while, and I hope this forum is still around in 2 years time. But until then I'm signing out.

Deadmans note : incase this forum DOES go down and another is created, or for some other mystical reason, you can Always contact me @

cheer's folks, keep on doing what you glorious bastards do.

heya folks, this one still needs some polishing , but its good enough that I feel I can share it without shame!

this here, is the ABRT , or the automated Ballistic Rocket Turret.

Parts! : Pressurelines Fatalistic Calculator bot, Owls camera system for locking targets (from the aa missle) , and Anannas' Clock to keep the timing delay, and soon it will be mounted on one of Marvins combat bots , as they normally have really good terrain avoidance.

I know there is alotta flaws in rawbots. I know the early devs didn't really do their best. But nothing pisses me off like the way they decided to tie the visual rendering of the game, to its physical computation. WHY!?

Like get this okay, I spent alot of time tinkering with pressurlines ballistic cannon bot to make my own variation which fired a rocket. I had it so it hit the target 100% of the time. Then I modified the map and added some other bots and stuff.

I later came back to show a friend my amazing rocket bot, and it missed time after time. I reset the map to remove all the chnages I made, and then it Hit!

so just to make sure I was right, I reset, then spawned in my BigVTOL. And sure enough, the rocket missed by a mile (over the target).

That is hands down the dumbest thing I've ever seen from my pyshics based sandbox. If your going to lag the game when there is lots of stuff on screen, Fine, thats cool, But why do the LAWS OF PHYSICS BEND WITH THE CPU PERFORMANCE IF THE GAME IS ALREADY LAGGED?! AAAARRRGGHH!

in short, my robot I was working on which would deliver a volley of 12 long range ballistic dumb fire rockets has been put on hold indefinitely due to stupidity.

Look guys, I think we can all agree what we need some new blood around here. So I figured it would be a good idea to head on over to some other web forums and share the game.  Ofcourse these web forums should belong to games like rawbots so we can attract players with similar taste. 

I have a list of webforums a mile long we can try. However making accounts on all these forums is tedious and I've already had my dose of tedious (I manually commented on pictures of 50/290 member's of the steam rawbots group, which is way more work then it sounds).

If any of you guys would be up for registering accounts on these webforums , Im willing to make a generic copy-paste post and following video for you to spread.

The webforums I am thinking about are as follows (ill handle this one, I'm an old moderator on there, though I havent been very active) (this is a forum for indie game developers. but I feel rawbots would fit in the off topic disscussion just fine) (now I know that robocraft mostly doesn't Jive with rawbots, but I feel the more HardCore members will be attracted to rawbots. )

annd uhh, (pressureline or Marvin  can you handle this one? I don't really know where to go and I think you would be the best to talk with real robotics peoples)

I'm sure we can think of more aswell.
I'll be doing terratech myself, but I really need a hand with the others because thats alot of work that I don't particularly feel like doing :p
so volunteer yourself and I'll get to making that copy pasta post for you (and the other volunteers)

for real! why don't they have four connection points?! why do grenades only have one?! same with hovers! would it have been so hard to allow 4 connections points on the majority of parts!? DAM YOU PREVIOUS RAWBOTS DEVELOPMENT! YOU ARE THE BANE OF MY BUILDS!

Hey guys! If you build bots like I do , you probably use lots of modular parts mashed together. This is a dump of parts I had kicking around. I'll add more to this as I have more parts kicking around.

Pressurlines auto turret! (or maybe its marvins?) Torn from his battle bot and put on a handy stand for you! simply modify part positioning as necessary. All the code's been done for you!

Up next we have Owl's AA missiles! again, torn from the bot, simply modify part portioning as you need

A Big Square Segement. name says it all!

A long Diamonde Chassie!

A suspension based support buggy. Comes with real steering and a 5 Billion Mass tolerance!

A pre made MultiRotor! for all your VTOL needs!

up next, a little square segment!

 a little triangle segment!

Anti Aircraft Platform! hover technology stolen from the tutorial level

A medium range dumbfire Rocket! small and compact, best in volleys!

A super small dumbfire rocket! meant for extreme close range!

Hope you guys find that these bits and pieces save you some construction time! I'll add more as I make/rip them off stuff.

If your new to the game , or new to the forums after thinking the game was dead, you should probably know about the event that started the creation of this webforum.  You should also know a brief history of rawbots and its current status.  You can find all that information here

Heya folks, here are two of my over sized flying builds. I'll be working on adding more to the lineup very soon!

please enjoy (with links)
