infinitydex I highly doubt a simple google search could get you the whole FRC game. I also doubt you would just lose the link if you truely thought it was the game. If I found this supposed "entire FRC game site" online I would hit the bookmark button so fast...

Talking Re: 2010 Game Hint #2

THE GATES ARE THE SAME SIZE, but there weren't any yellow pads at the very ends of the field as shown in green, only the center fits best.

Your focus on the carpet brings me to think (in my opinion) that the focus is on the gate. There must be some significance about it, so I think this furthers the possibility that the gates are moved and possibly too that the field is majorly re-organized.
a few years ago they had just plain carpet not tiles

infinitydex I highly doubt a simple google search could get you the whole FRC game. You are not giving yourself much credibility on the forum. Especially when you changed your description because you realized that the ramp like thing was for bringing bots in and out.
i noticed that 2 i actually thought it was watever i said it was because last year they removed them instead of leaving um in a 90 degree angle

Re: 2010 Game Hint #2

Tiles? Do you mean the regolith from last year? As far as I know all the competitions but last year were on carpeting.

Removing does sound familiar since I remember them putting a piece of Lexan on the gate.

Re: 2010 Game Hint #2

So tiles of carpet instead of one big roll? I am still confused what you mean by tiles.

Not quite. Maize Craze was played on corn, if Wikipedia is indeed correct (and I trust the FIRST community to keep it as such). I think that there were a few other playing surfaces too, but as I have little knowledge of past games, I don't know which ones they were. Weren't the ramps for 2007 diamond-plate?

I don't think that FIRST has ever used tiled carpet. It's probably always been the big rolls - probably cheaper, and considerably easier to set up.

VEX / FTC fields are made of interlocking foam tiles. Think "puzzle piece" foam you might see in kid's play areas....

Someone cool suggested it as a joke, but what about a rubber high traction field? Smart programming and gearing would be needed to avoid tripping a breaker on such a surface...

I'm not so sure why everyone (save one other poster in this thread) assumes this is a CAD program instead of an animation program.

Re: 2010 Game Hint #2

I am trying to figure out plain carpet vs tiles now it sorta seems like he means a solid roll of carpet instead of carpet tiles / multiple pieces of carpet.

I am aware of maize craze, the 2007 rack was made of some diamond plate.

Are you thinking of Raising the Bar? from 04? Had the steps with the bar in the center, not sure what that was made out of.

Thats called a hint... it doesn't lay out the game... last year we got a picture of a fish as our clue... that isn't exactly an all telling website

CAD files can still be imported into animation programs though I suppose the materials may not act correctly.

That was my original thought! The first hint was definitely in Inventor, but this looked distinctly different to me, and I can't believe that I forgot to bring it up earlier.

Animation screenshottttt.

I couldn't imagine setting up individual tiles and taping them together even a few rolls of carpet, at 10k lakes in 08 there was a robot that ended up almost driving through the carpet when it hit the wall in autonomous (speed controllers at full speed after impact) so I don't think tiles would hold up.

edit: It is time to sleep, I am slowly becoming a game hint addict...
