My rookie team of 6th graders got a respectable score of 305 points in our local FLL competition which was decent but a little short of the winning team. I would like to thank the developers for their hard work. We will stick to MakeCode next season since the kids all enjoyed using it ( hopefully I can get them to try Arcade out in the meantime).
I’ve listed a few improvements that would make life easier
- Being able to read all sensor values (like color & reflected light) via usb or BT while the robot is moving.
- Connection to EV3 is still flaky. We started with BT but for some reason that became less stable and moved to USB with the offline version later on. It’s a one click upload only about half the time.
- Listing / deleting programs from the computer ( I know there is a work around)
- Fun things like allowing the kids to upload custom sounds or images and bigger fonts on the EV3 screen
