Unexpected Victories

Postby The Engineer on Mon Jul 21, 2008 3:56 pm

Ever made a contraption only to find out it didn't work as you expected.. But then it succeeded in a different way?

This thread is for those kind of contraptions.

Mine is this

I was originally intending for the tall vehicle to push the ball then roll into position as a ramp, but the smaller vehicle had other plans. Through some stroke of luck (And my accidental addition of a third wheel) I managed to win anyway.

From the ashes of what looked like defeat, the Phoenix rose and claimed victory...

I was experimenting with hoppers, and after this one worked I figured I'd try climbing the stairs with one - it didn't work so well:

Then there's a design posted on another forum that I was fiddling around with; I was trying to lob it up onto the ball, but I got some more interesting results:

And this one I just did while experimenting with disassembling an already sparse catapult posted in another thread here:

My aim was a bit off, but to my surprise Victory was mine!

Those tiny target balls have notoriously bad physics; my guess is that the force behind it caused it to go slightly inside the ground when it landed, and thus inside the part of the goal area that's inside the ground. It's difficult to be sure, though, as the victory cloud obscures the landing.

I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes.

I love the victory spin/dance it does after victory is achieved!
