The starting size of 14" cubed is odd. Standard Vex chassis components are 11.5" and 17.5" A max-sized robot guarantees having to cut chassis rails to length, or going to a 12x12 (nominal) robot. A lot of 12x12 robots did great in Elevation, so this isn’t necessarily a big problem, but 14x14x14 is an odd size for Vex.
Replays will NOT be permitted, no matter the situation. Even at the Elevation World Championships at least two matches were replayed due to referee error (or, at least a credible argument was made that referee error may have led to an unfair result). Your G-13 seems to indicate that not even matches like this would be replayed. Is this your intent?
You may want to check the wording of . It looks like some cutting-and-pasting went awry.
Do Vexplorer motors count against the limit of 10 “Vex motors and servos?” You might want to make this clearer.
Do you have exact plans available for the ramps and bar? I couldn’t find the specs in your drawing.
I think this is a great game design and it should be a lot of fun. You should be proud. I wish we were close enough to play. Thanks for taking the time to design this game.
(This might be a good summer challenge game for our teams – if I can keep them away from Clean Sweep – which is why I read the rules in detail.)
My name is Cody Smith, I am a 3D animator. I have started taking on work and I seem to have a niche in the robotics game animation area (my entry to the design challenge placed first, I am currently working on Clean Sweep’s animation and I have another game animation lined up for the CREATE foundation).
Just out of curiosity, would the Rah Cha Cha Ruckus be interested in an animation for their yearly games? I bill myself out at $8/hr but since this is FIRST / VEX related I’d be willing to give a discount.
