Trivia
Jack Daniels skins all of his bots using an ancient 266mhz PowerMac G3 laptop and Photoshop 6.0 from 1996. It is ironic that the hardware he uses for Skinning is older than some of the forum members on Gametechmods...

Jack Daniels

Joined the official RA2 forums in the summer of 2007. Jack Daniels is often called "JD" for short.

Jack is known more for his skinning talents and his cool looking designs rather than his bot-building and combat effectiveness. He created an array of Battlebot replicas using only stock components. Most of them can be seen here: Replica Forum Thread

He is very fond of making FSes. His progress in bot-building has been "sloth-like" at best. After four years of playing the game he has still yet to make a popup. He got into DSL building early summer of 2009 in preparation for the Clash Cubes 2 tournament.

Jack is not fond of making clones of anyone's bots. He usually spends hours trying to find undiscovered configurations that could be unique for battling.

JD participated in an array of tournaments within the Game Tech Mods community in 2009. Mainly, to gain feedback on bots and become a better builder altogether.
