Pro Contest: Transformer

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

Welcome to the second 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 Thursday, March 20th.

The winner gets a Black Diamond Trophy worth 12 points.

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.

  • JOELwindows7: @Rubicon: you're welcome sir plus thx not to be arrogant!
  • JOELwindows7: @sdac: wow man, thx for just little loosing the rule. But something you have to worry about future CyberBully words by contestant e.g.: "THAT'S NOT FARE! WHY DO YOU DO THAT TO HIM?! NOT ME TOO! ****!". Well this can be so bad idea, but anyway thx for the info
  • Rubicon2: @ricardito08: Thanks :) @JOELwindows7: ty, never arrogant lol always enjoy introducing new ideas :) @TechZ: thank you oh contest king ;) @sdac: Thanks sdac :) I was worried that the entry didn't follow all rules, but I figured you did say the contest had loose boundaries and was sure you'd appreciate the amount of effort I put in it.
  • sdac: Rubicon's entry did not follow all rules but excelled in other areas instead. Great work everyone, this was a very successful contest!
  • TechZ2124: Congrats @Rubicon, @abrackers and @cornfield gamer ! I could not finish my entry for this contest at time :(. And welcome to the Black Diamond club, Rubicon !

  • Rubicon2: @pajlada: it's up, check it out :)
  • abrackers2: @sdac: @pajlada: I think you guys might need to do another clean up to remove disqualified enteries again
  • keeghan: I hope I win!
  • abrackers2: @Rubicon: mines up now
  • Rubicon2: @abrackers: it would be neat to see what everyone has come up with :)
  • abrackers2: @Rubicon: I think mine will be the exact opposite. Ive got 7 different transformations but it looks like a bit of a brute
  • ricardito08: @pajlada: Ok. Thx for the reminder.
  • pajlada: @ricardito08: @that guy: This will not be the last contest. :-)
    @EdadoDuran: The next "normal" contest will be up as soon as possible, no date set yet.
    @Rubicon: Looking forward to it!
  • EdadoDuran: When it's the next contest?
  • Rubicon2: @sdac: I've been working on a transformer, I'm sure you're gonna like it. I built it solely for looks though and not functionality, so I'm not sure if that will pose a problem for the contest. Regardless I will try to finish it by the due date, it'll be worth the wait :)
  • ricardito08: Sdac, is this going to be the last contest?
  • Golden: Its gonna be hard to chose by pajlada and sdac
  • that guy2: Is this going to be the last contest?
  • florian_kri45: my object can fly, swim and Drive and there is also another rocket inbuild
  • jovan_14: I'm in...mine is so simple but I tried my best..
  • Sir Yakk: I'm working on it but the mechanics of how to accomplish my objectives are being a bit tricky. I never thought free use of three levels would still be a limitation. My first design needed about five.
  • King-of-galaxy1234: Man how to this . I think this is for the pros or noobs or whatever it is lol.
  • Demon666: @sdac: i do plan on entering at least 2 more transformers that are like nothing you've ever seen before in principia lol.
  • abrackers2: @sdac: mine is coming in a week. Currently fitted 4 different transformations in. Trying to get up to 6. I also need to design a track for it though
  • Golden: Second entry for me :D
  • sdac: disqualified a bunch of entries, come on guys where are all the cool machines? ;)
  • zardOz2: There is only two rules, and eight of the first ten managed to ignore both, lol. "Your object must transorm!" Each form must have function... different functions!
  • zardOz2: @Cool Dude: take your time, It's a month long contest, keep improving it everyday and it will be epic! You will learn a lot at least even if you dont get a crown.
  • Cool Dude: Mine's a little too simple, isn't it? DANG!
