Pro Contest: Transformer #2

This contest has ended. Thank you for all your great entries. Please check out the winners and highlighted entries below!

Welcome to the fourth official Principia Pro Building Contest!

The topic this time is to create a transformer, an advanced robot that can adjust itself to the environment by modifying itself. It must be able to transform between at least two formations and all forms must serve a purpose.

This contest has very loose boundaries, you are free to define "transform" however you want, and whether or not the transformer can be controlled or is automated is up to you.

You have four weeks to build, submit your entry before Wednesday, December 24th.

The winner gets a Black Diamond Trophy worth 12 points, there are currently only two people who have a Black Diamond trophy - TechZ and Rubicon.

The first runner-up gets a gold trophy worth 5 points.

The second runner-up gets 2 silver trophies worth a total of 2 points.

And as usually, well made entries also have a chance to be featured on the front page.

Tips and Hints

  • Johnsinna: @BobMonkeypimp: neh its a pro contest
  • BobMonkeypimp: @Johnsinna: Build one, old levels aren't allowed to be entered into the competition anyway, they get disqualified. At least give it a try.
  • Johnsinna: @BobMonkeypimp: Yeah But I DONT HAVE ANY SUITABLE LEVELS
  • BobMonkeypimp: @Johnsinna: Just give it a try, you've got a while to submit it. The worst that'll happen is that you'll learn some new techniques.
  • Ridget: So sad, my BuCUE supercopy from gundam gone by cache cleaner T_T need to create new one xD i love mecha so much especially transformer
  • Johnsinna: No Chance For Me
  • Johnsinna: Im Not Even Gonna Try
  • wokstation22: Ooo boy. I think we might see some epic levels in this one. Meanwhile, I've not a clue what to do..!
  • Demon666: @Galvatron66: making a good transformer isn't easy regardless of if you use lua or not.... I tried to make a walking Optimus prime with super mode for the first transformer contest and I failed completely.... lua does help but it still takes alot of skill/time to make things that work properly.
  • zardOz2: @Galvatron66: lol, you clearly have no idea how hard it is to make a good script, you cant just make a transformer easily, it would take much longer than building something with parts
  • Galvatron66: I already knkw whos the winner
  • sjoerd19992: @Galvatron66: you don't have to use legs, you could also just make one which transforms between 3 different, weird cars
  • Galvatron66: And players that know how to use lua can just make a transformer easily
  • Galvatron66: I wanted to build one but I dont know how to make the legs move (just like my jaeger)
  • Technomancer: No chance for me LOL
  • sjoerd19992: @that guy: lol XD
  • Johnsinna: GG Every One
  • that guy2: "It happened again... but things were different this time. Things had changed; I wasn't just trying to geuss at how I could overcome it. I was stronger this time, and I knew what I could do." -- {author that doesn't exist}, "{book that doesn't exist}"

    ( I made it up, just now.)
  • Ctjet: @rom1k: woooo!
