Welcome,

to jac's newest uber-awesome thread :)

As you can see in the title, this thread should be a collection of all FC Extenders, Bridges and Catapults.
So if you made one of these very interesting thingies, you should definately post it here.

READ THE 'HOW TO SUBMIT' PART FOR EACH SECTION BEFORE YOU POST YOUR SOLVE!


ALSO IMPORTANT:
- If it's not your one, tell me who invented it (if you know)
- Your extender needs a name.
- Tell me what's special about your design, what you can or can't use if for.
- We don't need only the longest ones. Post EVERY working idea.
- If you like another player's concept, use it to solve a level you can post it here, too.
- Also post powered designs.

I made an Upreacher! http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=10740394 To me it looks kinda like a Jac upreacher, but who knows? It's an ARCTURUS!! (Just drank a Monster, kinda hyper, hehe...) Is it legit or should it be put as an example? Either's fine, I'm just tryin' to keep the thread alive.
