This reminds me of the crab looking design which had an orange wheel for power and went to the right. Anyone remember it/have its link?

No. It was a design on a user-made level. It looked something like this, but with four legs and a LOT smoother.

I remember there was something on FC2 with 1 wheel and 4 legs, I think it was part of a level. I really wish I could find that design. Anyway here's mine with some fine-tuning to walk smoother- http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11955940

Yes! This is the concept that I was thinking of (though the exact one I was thinking of is a design from FC1).

Ohhhh, yeah that's the one.


I recognize the leg mechanism actually, from Theo Jansen's Strandbeests, which you can see on youtube. They're very cool, definitely worth emulating.
