BODY BUILDER UPDATE – 1.3.2382

2017_bodybuilder_outnow

NEW:

Body Builder Tool
The Body Builder tool has been designed to give players who are maybe not yet comfortable with building in Robocraft the power to create nice looking Robot chassis quickly with just a few clicks of the mouse.

The Body Builder interface is very easy to use:

  • Select a Robot class (car, mech, tank or hover)
  • Select a front body (multiple selections available)
  • Select a back body (multiple selections available)
  • Select color scheme
  • Create your robot body

For more information on the Body Builder tool, check out Sergii’s recent Dev Jam.

Undo in Edit

  • Pressing the player-assigned* Undo hotkey while in Edit Mode will undo the last action:
    • Robot part being placed
    • Robot part being removed
    • Robot part colour being changed
    • Robot being moved (up, down, left or right)
    • Undoing a mirrored action will undo one action at a time. I.e placing 2 cubes in mirror mode will undo one, and then the other
  • Undo history starts from the moment of entry into Edit Mode
  • Up to 2000 Undo actions permitted per ‘save session’. Save sessions refresh when the user leaves the garage bay
  • New on-screen hint for Undo

To activate the Undo functionality, existing players will need to assign a hotkey. This can be done through the controls settings which can be accessed by pressing the Esc (escape) key on the main game screen.

Elimination BRAWL
Many of you have asked for Elimination to be brought back so we’re doing just that, bringing it back as a BRAWL. If you’re new to the game mode, there are two ways to win Elimination, either kill all of the enemies or capture the enemy base and there’s no respawn either!
