The game tutorial (tech ladder) itself fails to explain some mechanics, Including health (especially health) so we decided to try and make our own.
Robocraft 2 Quick Guide For New Players
Health system in RC2 is not explained in the game at all, so we felt like this section should be the first. Especially after seeing a lot of bots built out of large 9x9x9 blocks, or small 1x1x1 blocks, all of which have awful durability.
Let’s start from the basics.
- Cubes do not have health, instead, it’s connections that have them.
- Connection Health is based on connection perimeter
- Then connection health is multiplied by weakest connected material
- (NB: in future it will be changed to the average of connected materials)
- Which means, the most effective strategy for health is stacking 9x9x1 blocks or even plates blocks.
- When using 3x3x3 or 2x2x2 Joints try to place them on multiple horizontal blocks instead, that way they won’t get destroyed in a second.
Tip: You can resize joints by holding [Shift] while [Mouse Scroll Up/Down].
- Logic sounds scarier than it really is. If anything, Math blocks are more scary.
- Logic signals can be either positive (+1), negative (-1), or 0.
- When connecting a wire to Left/Right, Left will output -1 signal, and right will output +1, similar happens with forward/backwards.
And basic math stuff:
- There’s also signals between 0 and 1, such as 0.55 or -0.3.
- Powering a joint or other blocks such as (antigravs or thrusters) with +0.5 signal will cause it to work with half the force.
- Logic blocks only accept signals higher than 0.5 and will always convert them to 1.
- Math blocks don’t do that.
Tip: Connecting the integer block to the Multiplier block and any other signal will cause it to work like a toggleable integer block
- To rename or retake the robocraft’s thumbnail screenshot, enter build mode on a robocraft you want, press esc, and press save, and press “Take Screnshot”
- To make a good flyer you will need to compromise armor and especially weight.
(or if you using DashTheFlash’s potato design, you don’t have to sacrifice armor. It’s just too OP.)
- You can reposition your Robocraft by pressing arrow keys, if you want to move it forward, press , .
- Certain blocks are limited to X and Z (i.e plates) and movement/weapon parts can’t be stretched
- Set block scales can be done with SHIFT+SCROLLWHEEL UP/DOWN
- Precons = Copy+Pasting groups of objects, which you can then save by pressing [Q] and dragging it from the bottom into inventory space,
- To delete precon, drag it out of inventory.
- Powerful robocrafts have two seats, one controls the piloting, second controls additional turret(s), if you see a player exit their robocraft near you, wait for them or get closer to them so they can enter the powerful robocraft.
- Lasers are the most efficient weapon for capturing Towers.
- And Railguns also deals less damage if you are close to the target, so avoid close combat when using it.
- Railguns require your bot to be Heavy in order to be Accurate.
