Design A Body Competition

body_builder_comp

When we announced the Body Builder tool, many of you were quick to ask if it would be possible to add/upload your own custom bodies to the tool and share them with the rest of the community. While this isn’t currently possible in the game, Mark, Robocraft’s director, did want to see what sort of things you could create given the opportunity. So, here it is, our first Design A Body Competition.

In short, we want to see your Robot chassis and the best ones will be added to the game.


For this competition we’re going to have two different categories and you can submit entries to either or both. The two categories are:

  • Category 1: Design Front & Rear chassis for an existing movement ‘Class’
  • Category 2: Create a completely new movement ‘Class’ (this will require a minimum of 4 complete chassis to be submitted)

For the second category, we’re going to allow collaborations so work with your friends and come up with some fantastic new robot classes.

This competition, while similar to our regular artbot competitions, does have some specific requirements and strict rules that must be adhered to or your submission could be invalid. Each category has specific guidelines so please make sure you read and understand the competition rules and building guidelines before submitting your chassis to the competition.


Building Guidelines – Category 1

In this category we want to see your chassis designs for any existing Body Builder Class – Tank, Car, Mech or Hover. Your chassis MUST use only health cubes (the free ones) and include the block formations in the template examples below. This must be in the middle of the chassis as this is where we split it. This will allow us to easily slice your winning chassis in two and add it to the Body Builder tool.

slices

You don’t need to add weapons or movement parts to the chassis, just be aware to ensure that they’re built to accommodate them. As a size guide, the following movement parts should be considered:

  • Car – Discoverer Wheels
  • Mech – Mech Leg Centaur
  • Tank – Tank Track Warthog
  • Hover – Hover Blade Squall

Colors:

  • For simplicity, please use only 3 of the four basic colors (excluding white)

Uploading your Chassis:

  • All completed chassis should be uploaded to the CRF (community robot factory)
  • Your chassis name should begin with the term BB01 and then a short name (such as hotrod / blimp / charger )
  • Your chassis description must include the existing class your chassis is for ie. Car, Mech, Tank or Hover

Building Guidelines – Category 2

For this category we want you to come up with a completely new class of Robot Chassis – this could be whatever you like; something futuristic such as spaceships or more down to earth like animals – it’s completely up to you. However, please consider that not everyone has all the parts and so try and create Chassis that can be used with low-tier movement parts.

The new Class you’re creating for must, as a minimum, have four complete Chassis submitted and all of them must use the same block formations at the ‘slice’ point. This will allow players to mix and match the front and back parts seamlessly in the Body Builder tool.

Because this category requires a lot more work from you, we are permitting collaborative submissions. Work with your friends on creating chassis for a new class and individually upload them to the CRF. Any collaborative builds must be flagged as such in the description field when uploading your chassis to the CRF.

Your chassis MUST use only health cubes (the free ones) and they must all use the same slice block formation. This will allow us to easily slice your winning chassis in two and add it to the Body Builder tool.

Colors:

  • For simplicity, please use only 3 of the four basic colors (excluding white)

Uploading your Chassis:

  • All completed chassis should be uploaded to the CRF (community robot factory)
  • Your chassis name should begin with the term BB01 and then a short name (such as hotrod / blimp / charger )
  • Your chassis description must include the NEW class your chassis is for eg. Animals, Insects, Spaceships
  • If you are collaborating, ensure that you and your friends are using the same class name and that you mention that your submission is a collaborative one
  • You must upload, at a minimum, four chassis per new class – Failure to upload four Chassis per new category could result in all submission being invalid.

Prizes:

For this competition, we’ll be picking our favorite chassis for both categories and will add them to the game in a future update. All winners will be announced on the Robocraftgame.com website.


Rules:

  • Follow the building guidelines for the category you’re submitting Chassis to
  • Individual submissions must be your own work
  • Collaborative submissions are permitted for category 2
  • Only submissions with basic health cubes are permitted
  • Competition period: Monday 20th November 2017 – 23:59 (UTC+1) Sunday 26th November 2017
  • The judges decision is final and correspondence will not be entered into over why one chassis was picked over another
  • Entrants must upload their chassis to the CRF
  • The term BB01 must be included at the beginning of the chassis title when uploaded to the CRF
  • By entering the competition you grant Freejam permission to use your design in future promotional activity.
  • HAVE FUN! (this is the most important rule)
