Help With Pults

Postby ScienceGuy2012 on Tue Nov 13, 2012 5:38 pm

Pult Help Area
I give help and ask for help. Help me and post your problems, they will be solved, and more problems will arise. Pults only.

I need a new type of catapult that:
-has superior timing
-is powerful and controllable
-LAUNCHES JUST ABOUT INSTANTLY
-is preferrably brown, compact if not
-doesn't rely merely on tweaks(any catapult can be tweaked to this with a lot of patience)
And no I don't want those OP wheel pults or squibs I need to catch objects and throw them at the target without delay and with accuracy.
Any suggestions?

This looked pretty accurate and powerful, could be made small or large I imagine. Not mine.

I said I'm using it where I first catch the object. Perhaps a trigger?

http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11833738 this is a pult I whipped up, if the ball is falling into the top of the build area it's very useful. If you like it I'll show you step by step how to make it.

http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11833746 this is the best pult design I know of, I've used it very many times. It's very powerful and accurate. In this design I use a static as a brace to hold it down but it could easily be done with another weight, because It has so much power even with not that big of a weight.

Nah, I can figure that out myself
and that still makes me tweak to time it
I want to be able to make a "quicktrigger" like how the best contraptioneers make speedy contraptions
don't they use some sort of pult that can do the job?
I know skitters is a master at making contraptions fast
so are some other people, but skitters is the best for the big levels
