Trying for a gravity solution: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=803579

I'm not getting much progress though :(

Update: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=804969

I pretty much redid everything and made a better two-ply water chain, and it STILL broke :argh:

Water Chains increase spring rate (stiffness) as the links get longer. Therefore, short links = low spring rate = high deformation = easy to break. Try making a single-ply chain with long links. :)

While this level was indeed easier than some of the preceeding levels it's also one of the more fun.

My solution was my first gut-instinct response and it worked almost immediately, although not as smoothly as I would have preferred.

The sheer volume of possible solutions is what makes this level so enjoyable.

My first idea. Thought I'd take a page from Tube and adapt my solution to that to this, but rotated 90 degrees. It didn't work like I'd hoped it would, but it still finishes.

EDIT: With feeling now

Do I beat you if I indicate you really only used 5 pieces? heh Most folks don't count the objective piece as part of the solution.

I managed to get a pretty powerful kick for this one, which gets the ball to travel along the entire U, which in turn gets the ball into the goal rather more quickly than if I had barely managed to get the ball on the upper ledge. :dance:
