Howdy cowboy, the Sheriff is back in town!

General Robot added 1 year ago

My contribution to FreeJam's 6th design-bot competition.

My initial intention was to build a cowboy with a lasso in one hand and the reins in the other (I was thinking of using rods for this). However, I would need a total of at least 2200 - 2500 cpu to create that so I settled for a Sheriff (without reins) instead.

I'm really satisfied with how it turned out (especially the horse's head) even though it is a very thin horse (due to the hitbox of the sprinter legs).

A tricky thing was to get all legs connected at a good distance from each other since:
1) I didn't want the sheriff's legs to reach the ground when he is riding
2) I wanted the horse's & the sheriff's legs as much together as possible (otherwise the bot would be to wide and I'd run out of cpu)
3) I wanted the Sheriff's legs to be so far apart that I could fit 1 row of cubes between them so that the horse doesn't look so thin (when you look at it from the side)

Since the Sheriff's legs don't reach the ground when he is riding he bends his knees instead which looks really nice!

Oh... and it looks hilarious when the horse's legs have been shot off and the Sheriff runs away with half a horse between his legs!

I remember you using this. When you lost all four of the horses legs, the sheriff walked off without a scratch using his sprinter legs. XD

This could be hollowed out so it would fit a few revolvers (SMG or plasma or something) and the sheriff's star.
