Algobots Turnament!!!

Postby crytek » Sat Dec 04, 2010 11:22 pm

FULL! NO MORE ROOM FOR ANY MORE MEMBERS. SORRY. BUT IF YOU STILL WANNA JOIN, JUST WAIT FOR MY NEXT TURNAMENT.

THE VIDEO IS RELEASED HERE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvQ74qdmx6o

WATCH THE VIDEO TO FIND OUT WHO WINS!

Welcome to the Algobots Turnament! To enter in the competition, you must fill out the following below, then download the scene at the bottom of the page. then make your own algobot in either the blue square or the red square in the scene for ROUND 1 (the squares determin what team you are on).

The goal is to push the opponants Algobot off the stage. So make a good bot for that.

If you don't have a Youtube account, then put "No Account" in the "Youtube Username" question.

Username:

Bot name:

Team (Red/Blue) :

Youtube Username:

After you fill all this out, start creating your Algobot in one of the boxes for ROUND 1 in the scene (Blue box if your the Blue Team, Red box if your the Red Team).

When your done, you can test your Algobot in all 3 rounds. Remember, you can only make 1 Algobot. If that Algobot beats ROUND 1, it will move onto ROUND 2 and fight there... ect. If you fall off the fighting stage, you lose that round.

Building Intructions:
Bot must be able to fit inside the blue or red building box.
Your Algobot can only collide with Group A or nothing at all.
No Thyme or Scripting Allowed.
A max Motor Speed of 400.
You can not change any Material Options besides Friction (Max Friction is 2.000).
Can not have a Geometry Controller.
Your weapons must have a max size of half a meter in width and height (measure them using the ruler under the building zone).
The whole Algobot must be able to run on its own (Must be 100% Auto Pilot and no controls needed).
The max amount of objects you can use is 30 (hinges, fixates, and tracers dont count as objects).
Lasers are not allowed.

I need 4 people to participate in this turnament. Just upload your Algobot before Dec 10th. Once I get 4 different Algobots, I will create a youtube video showing the bots fight in each round.

Make sure to upload it as a phunlet.

Heres an example on what it will be like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cK9axSo2gCA (that is dacke93's turnament)

You can also download the example battle to see what it will be like. But first, download the main one.

YOU CAN NOT WIN BY SIMPLY PASSING THE OTHER ROBOT AND LETTING HIM FALL OFF. YOU HAVE TO "PUSH" HIM/HER OFF.

Whoevers bot makes it to ROUND 3 wins! But be careful... If you reach ROUND 3, you will have to take on 1 more player... Good luck!

Users in the turnament so far:
Dacke93: Red Team
Under Ground: Blue Team
Someone Else: Blue Team

Need 0 more Blues and 0 more Reds. Game is full. If you wanna see the results, watch the video.

Ill consider it though im not really good at creating stuff in algodoo and if i do youll have to wait a while as im on my mobile.

EDIT

I've tried but I have given up,
I didn't want to use a simple weapon like a cog but there was nothing I could do that followed the rules, mainly because of the collision bugs in algodoo and the small size of the robots.

it's just about who can get the best wedge, or the heaviest bot.

sadly, this contest is flawed.

The rules allow for overlapping objects, which means heavier bots.

So far there has been 1 person that has entered in the contest. That person is dacke93 (the one who came up with the idea of a turnament like this). If you wanna see his bot, just search his name on algobox.

Interesting contest which could actually turn out quite well, however I do foresee quite a few areas which can be sneaked by to 'cheat' without technically breaking the rules.

If you are reading this and have not entered in the competition, please do. I need 1 more blue and 1 more red before the 10th (friday). If I don't have enough people by then, I'll just make my own bots to fill in the empty spaces.

Your bot violates the building instructions. Carefully read the instructions and fix the problems before Dec 10th. Also, you failed to fill in your username, bot name, bot team color, and youtube name.

Your in! But y couldn't you find a ruler? It was right in the scene to start with... Didn't you notice the measurer right under the building zone in the scene? And the bot was a little bit bigger than the building zone so I had to shrink it.

Nice! In this turnament, it would get powned, but in the next one, I'm gonna make it against the rules to overlap objects to add weight. So you shouldn't be powned in the next turnament.
