Top 10 ALL TIME (Subject to Change)

Postby rianbay812 on Fri Jan 18, 2013 10:23 pm

These are my 10 favorite designs or all time. They are inspirational, meaningful pieces of FC history. I tried mixing things up a bit so they weren't all one particular style of design.

Please comment if you feel any changes should be made. I'm completely open for suggestion.
Also, keep making cool things! This is not a static list!

"MAZE 1!!!!!!!!!"
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11033015
Everyone who was here at this time knows why this is here and why this design is so influential. A few revolutionary concepts combined with lots of manpower and remy.

"Scarmiglione"
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=10989759
You can literally watch this design over an over again for 24 hours and not figure out how it works. The protogenius era hit its climax with this design and the whole community certainly remembers it.

"FantasticVoyage"
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=10940927
Woah. Thik's grand masterpiece had me re-evaluating what was possible in this game. It's also not the only design Thik has made which has blown me away.

"Mechanical Champ"
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11237747
One of those awesome robotic arms utilizing one weight on the left. Well done.

"Boarderline"
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11769153
Debateably the hardest level ever solved brown on Fantastic Contraption

(The name isn't showing up...but it's jibberish anyway)
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11470539
Just a really creative design. As Pawel put it: "witchcraft".

"Doing it Hard"
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=5228481
An amazing longway done single-handedly by sumaleth the epic. Another one of those "what could possibly top this" type of levels.
(if the design doesn't work, which it won't, click here )

"Resuscitation"
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=10931940
Again, Thik at work.

"Egg Robber"
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=10176165
This mystery author samoo* creates his best piece of art yet with this fully operational mechanical robot powered by 1 powered wheel and black magic. Holy hell

"V3" (derived from the title, "Grand Entrance", but this version had more badges)
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=10990387
This massive collaboration which influenced me mainly because it was hot around the time I just joined the game. Really tweaky design, and it was the last object to be longwayed on this level.

for some reason i was blown away by this the first time i saw it (of course i was still new to what can be done on fc)

im kinda disappointed that my work is nowhere on there (except my level), but i can understand why not. nothing ive done compares to any of the above except maybe gravedigger. there werent any cool mechs in that one, im just salty lol

schmittd wallows in self pity

http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=9094994 The zhyrek flexer blew me away.

Also, I know I'm not up there with the greats, but this is the best thing I've ever made, and probably will make for quite a long time.
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11833409 It got a rating of 10 from Double.S... never have I been so proud while sitting at a computer. It really was revolutionary.

I had something like that when I solved Vox Populi before the deadline xD

There should be a video with the greatest designs from FC of all time

Not a bad list. I'd include something from lukasran. Not sure what, but that dude always had the most beautiful contraptions.
