Kyutai

Postby Artasid » Sun Aug 04, 2019 8:00 pm

The Kyutai frame (Japanese for Sphere body) is the newest frame design for the Trundleball games. It's sleek roundish design is meant to cut down on wind resistance, plus it uses common construction elements which cuts down on expenses. It is the intent of the manufacturer to create a sudden boon of popularity for the sport.

There are rumors that some Kyutai have undergone drastic alterations and have been utilized in mercenary and pirate bands as weaponized frames, though this claim has not yet been substantiated.

This gave me an idea about starting a challenge for bricking something in under 5 minutes based solely on a single image, no instructions given.

So, to test this idea, I set myself a 5-minute timer. I pressed Start, raced to grab and open my brick containers, and build a complete Kyutai with a weapon. It took me 3:27 to build this:

AEILOS Industries freebooters came across a top-secret blueprint designed for a sport Frame, and realized its combat potential. They quickly improvised and modified one, giving it heavy armor and a pulse cannon.

d6Rd d6Rd Pulse Cannon
d6B d6B Heavy Armor
d6G Quad Mobility
d6W d6W

As always, Artasid, your designs never fail to impress! I'm a big fan of this one in particular.

Interestingly, if you leave it a cube, it's Mr. Jameson.

Nice one! I might try that version of it! How long do you think it took to build it?

I didn't time myself, but definitely less than 5 minutes. "America's Got Talent" is on TV right now and I built it before the act that was on finished.

Cool. Hope you'll try a designated 5-minute challenge sometime, especially with your Kobold design being part of it!

Those are some nice variants Trokodile and Artic Banana. Nice to see it getting some attention.

By the sheer fact that I made Tachikomas in the past, tells you that I am a GitS fan.

..

As in it's a hamster ball? or are you referring to Hammond/Wrecking Ball from Overwatch? Interestingly Hammond/Wrecking Ball is what inspired this build.

Well yes and no. It is true I am trying to get Trundleball some more attention (it could really use it) but at the same time I left it open for others to make their own interpritations for the frame, like Trokodile and Artic Banana had done. There really is no wrong answers here.

I meant to post this earlier, but I was having technical difficulties uploading the pic.

A few weaponized Kyutai

ImageWeaponized Kyutai
GOLD: d6Rh d6Rh d8Rh Dual Crab Claws, d6Y d6Y Dual Antenna, d8G No Ranged Weaponry
RED: d6Rd d6Rd Turret Blaster, d6B d6B Lots of Armored Spikes, d6G Quad Mobility
GREEN: d6Ra d6Ra Swarmer Pod, d6G Rear Thrusters, d6G Quad Mobility

I actually have to laugh at myself. As I was making the gold one I kept singing

I'll be honest here, I don't know what Trundleball is... I'm a bit too new to the Hangar.

No worries. Trundleball and its rules can be found here

Trundleball is a game mainly about shoving each other's tiny hardsuit-sized frames around uncontrollably and causing hilarious collisions, and also maybe occasionally scoring a goal or two. It started with the mighty Trundle, and every now and then there's a new frame like the GD-B0Y, Weeboo, and Sardine that suits the size and shape requirements and the game gets brought up again.

I have to agree with Atavism, this one's super clean and has a great shape. I like the use of padlocks to make a compact "hip" structure

Might have to try out Trundleball now, it looks fun! A legless HatRabies Sprinting Ghost might fit the parameters, actually.

Recently, the great Atavism made a variation of the Kyutai build Link here along with variants of some other frames. I enjoyed his core build technique as it allowed the Kyutai to function for roles outside of Trunderball more easily. He informed me what he used and by using his design, I bricked a few updated Kyutai, which I am calling Kyutai-Ata class.

ImageKyutai-Ata Class
LEFT: d6Rd d6Rd Machine Gun, d6Y Tracker Beacon, d6G Long-Stride Legs
RIGHT: d6Ra d6Ra Mortar Pods, d6G Rear Thrusters.

SPECIAL THANKS to Atavism for sharing the central core design, which I used for these two.
I can not make an LDD of these because Digital Designer does not feature the 1x1 brackets used for the lower part of the central core.
But I hope you enjoyed and as always, I eagerly await any and all comments you wish to share.

I like that as a biped... You know, with all those circles on the front, they start looking like baby Salticidae.

Thank you Atavism. I enjoy the biped as well. In all honesty, i ran out of padlocks to make another quad so i was forced to improvise. The same with the round tiles in front as they were the only ones i had in the azure color scheme.

With the increased popularity of the Kyutai, I decided to make another slight redesign, focusing on more common friendly parts. I like the Ata redesign, however, the 1x1 brackets used are sometimes hard to come by in my area, so I made some attempts that do not require them as much, (With 1 or 2 exceptions)
The result is the Kyutai-Ata MK2!

ImageKyutai-Ata MK2
ORANGE: d6Rd d6Rd d8Rd Dual Firelaunchers, d6Y Antenna, d6G Quad Mobility, d8Rr SSR
WHITE: d6Rh d6Rh Anti-Riot Flamer, d6Rd d6Rd Mini Gun

These ones are just slightly larger than their predecessors, appealing more for the p7 scale than the p4 scale from earlier designs.

This is what I love about the hanger. You post a build, someone sees it and tries to upgrade it. You like the upgrade then try to improve it some more. This sharing and improving on ideas is the very ESSENCE of the Hanger in my opinion and I feel so blessed to be involved.

I hope you enjoyed and as always, I am eagerly awaiting any and all comments you wish to share.
