Phobos1.01

Plasma Drone added 8 months ago

This is the improved model of my second drone, "Phobos."http://robocraftgarage.com/robot/qxBCJLX3

Improved Points

Making the "core" of radders and thrusters(Still not perfect).

Adding the THruster Cheeters on the outside the armor.

Fixing the placement of lasers.

According to these chages, Phobos1.01 became more tough and fast Aromored Helium.

At last, I thank jopie110 who gave great advices.

This one is better than your previous Phobos. It looks just as awesome.

While it moves a bit better, it's still slow for a drone. I think that's mainly because of the edges (instead of slope edges), the struts (they are heavy) and the large amount of helium (has a lot of drag). There are also still a couple of full cubes next to the side lasers.
The weapon placement is much better!

You did a pretty good job on your first core. The biggest issue with it is the connections from the core to the armour. If I'm not mistaken there are two connection points, both are at the front of the bot which makes them easy to get hit. Having them spread out on the top of the bot would make it less likely that they get taken out. Adding a 'string' of blocks or a rod between the core and armour will act like a dmg buffer, making it less likely that dmg travels straight into the core.

I suggest looking at some drones in the factory to see how they connect their core to the outside, there are a lot of ways to do it and it's hard to explain how to do it right.

I also noticed the rods that connect your side lasers directly to the core. It would be better to connect the laser to the armour so you don't lose you vital movement parts when your gun gets hit.

These are just some pointers. There is a lot to learn when it comes to drone building. It took me dozens of failed attempts before mine came close to being decent.
Just keep improving it and before you know it you'll make some awesome little drones!

Your advice is really helpful! Thank you!

When I build Phobos, I started to build upper armor. I thought this is easy way to build at that time. However, it makes narrow space for a core building. I will make a core at first for next time.

Glad I could help. I will try this one too but I'm busy today. I'll rate it another day.
