Hammerhead Shark

Tesla Flier added 6 months ago

Another entry to Jac733's SMYT event. This bot is meant to resemble a hammerhead shark. And I have to say I pulled off the look... barely....

Removing most of the thrusters would give the bot a more accurate appearance of a hammerhead shark. I attached the thrusters as is, since I didn't really have any more room to make it look as "natural as possible". I will probably provide a screenshot, showing the bot without the abomination of thrusters and tesla blades stuck to it...

Also one more thing to note, this thing is probably one of the most impractical things I have ever built.

These ratings are harsh :(

This does remind a shark, but there's always something that can be tweaked in the design, to fit some 4-16 cpu taking little fins made out of cubes. You obviously used too heavy cubes, and wasted cpu on the powerless smallest thrusters. One has to first learn how to build strong/functional, and only after knowing how to make anything functional, go nuts with the design.

This was a good experiment, you have potential, but not enough experience yet.
Or maybe you just don't have enough patience or inspiration to tweak the build to it's peak.

Also, start building artbots as light as possible, so they can move with less movement parts. Tankiness comes from how you play the Artbots.

Sorry to disappoint you there dude ,but there is nothing at all similar or representing this hammerhead shark or any kind of fish... the tail the head and even the body looks badly formed. ALL fishes in the world have at the tail one fin up and one down... yours as I see has the bottom fin "eaten" ... by a thruster? lol

I think it looks pretty good. He made a flying machine, using a hammerhead "as inspiration". He even got the eyes on the sides of the head.

It definitely comes across as shark-like, and especially from the top-down view I can really see the hammerhead shape. Nice job. As for practicality, if you could lose a few of those little thrusters and double up on the horizontal wings, you would still be able to fly if you lost a few wings.

So you're back at it with your trolling again? If you look CLOSELY, you can tell I ran out of CPU to use, therefore there is no room for those set of "fins". Besides that, you clearly didn't take your time and consideration into reading the whole description. Of course the model would look inaccurate, what do you expect? Some kind of "eyecandy" for people that like fish? Of course, I can't expect anything serious from you, after your "criticism" on one of my previous bots.

I am not a hater, my 8/10 comments are positive to most of the Robocraft Garage community, and I didn't even knew I was commented you in another bot before, I just expressing my opinion, that is what "add comment" is for. So when I see in my eyes a "crap" I just cant hold myself to tell about it. Using Hammerhead AS AN INSPIRATION like funk_masta says fits perfectly for your bot, but posting a pic of a hammerhead and telling us you pulled off the look its totally a joke.

As for I didn't read entire description..i mostly sure did 2-3 times before even posting.
As for the Cpu run out, remove a thruster and put the fin or reform something else so you can achieve your cosmetic cause. Otherwise just remove the hammerhead shark pic, and rename your bot "Flying tesla" or something.

I said I pulled off the look BARELY. But besides that, how am I suppose to know you are commenting seriously, when you sound like you have a negative attitude? Speaking of which, when you commented on one of my previous bots, you did not sound too serious about the things I had to say. You were even ignorant to give a lower score than your previous rating.

And as far as I know, what will others say if I just call this a flying tesla when they clearly see something? Hammerhead Shark is a generic name, but so is Flying Tesla. And please, stop screaming about the fins, I get it, not EVERYTHING can be accurate to build. If you want to build a Hammerhead Shark Tesla that can fly decently and look SUPER accurate to the build,then go for it. And one more thing, so you're saying I can't use a "real" picture of which the model is based of, but you can? What kind of logic is that?

ahhh (now i just remember you) and just like your previously commented bot i'll do the same thing here, just stop answering to you. There is no understanding therefore, no point of posting answers... i will note down your name to remember it ,and never bother you again or look at your posts. End of story.
