Re: pic: Team 719's NASA/VCU Overdrive Simulation World Champions

We aren't sure exactly what we will be doing next. Rest assured, the programmers will continue to build the engine, so if we don't get an offering to the public this year we'll have something to show at the VCU regional next year. Past that, its all speculation.

It depends on the support we get from the First organization, fans, etc. There seemed to be a lot of interest at the regional this time around, so that's a good sign. There were very few times we didn't have 6 players driving one of three robots around the field, and had quite a few repeat customers such as those shown in this picture.

Will this be at the championship? It looks awesome! Are those the robots from the game animation? Or did you mimic popular designs from this season?

Dave's artwork was inspired by the game animation. The capabilities of the simulation robots were a mix of speed/turning, ball carrying, ball launching/throwing, and ball lifting, plus a handful of related parameters.

Sweet! I hope those are the robot designs that are always in the game animation... always wanted to build that one with the impossible arm (picked a robot up with ease in 2007, reached half way accross the field in 2008).

Where else is this making an appearance?

You're right, my mistake. The arm robot in that year held balls to kick, it didn't directly place the balls into the goal.

Wish we knew. There was some interest to have it at a later regional, the finals, or even at a Nascar event, but all of that depends on what level of sponsorship we receive.

It ain't cheap to pack up two 40" plasma screens, 8 laptops, 6 20" monitors, and the team members to run it . I'm sure more info will be forthcoming.

I might be goin a little far with this but i have to say this we be a really cool game if it were online. Have like...online regionals...be a little weird w/ only 6 different robots but it'd still be pretty amazing.

Make sure to congratulate them. They were incredible!

They had stiff competition. The high score went back and forth several times.
