Worst Solutions

Postby pppants on Wed Jul 16, 2008 2:20 pm

I know others out there have to have a 'worst' possible solution.

I submit the drunken ATAT for Over the Hump. It takes a long time, but I promise you, he makes it.

Also made this for Mission to Mars. After the goal is reached, the arm makes one more pass, and then explodes all over the place.

Hit the back button to see the whole thing after the Mission Accomplished screen.

Magnificent! The damn thing stays end up...

I made an attempt at flinging the brick for that one too, but quickly figured it would be too heavy to launch over the top. Nice work.

This one for Up the Stairs may be my most miserable. I never saw it finish the first time, as I accidentally left it running and left my PC. It takes a looong time.

I saw it getting right next to the top and I said to myself, "that didn't take that long," but then he hit that ball at the top and just tumbled back down..

But it looks awesome doing it.

Much like the guy with the Club board, I've become convinced there is no problem that a drunken mass of wheels and water rods can't solve. Working on one for Big Ball. Hope to have it tomorrow.

Not so much a solution, and you'll have to pay 10bux, but...

My stripper is pretty amazing in that bad sort of way

c'mon you'd pay 10bux to see a fantastic contraption stripper wouldn't you?

You have entirly missed the point of this thread. Those are totally normal solutions.

I'm still waiting for the OP's to finish.... it's been at least 10 minutes. Good lord that things ridiculous. EDIT: Update must have broken it, it ran for an hour without getting anywhere.

This is the "best" worst contraption so far, because when you look at it you just have no idea how it's even going to move towards the goal at all.

I'm not exactly sure how I expected it to get to the goal, but it certainly wasn't like that.

No, it still works. Well, rather, it still does what it always did. Every rod connects to a different wheel and there are no overlapping rods, so the update had no effect on it.
