Thats a nice one compscure, may not be pretty but it has many good points.
just solved that level as well: http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=10813257 :brown: :alsofugly:
made a design like yours with the double weight and whatnot when I first made that level, did not work that well tho: http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=10807088
Also nice Zhyrek for some reason I thought that level was going to be hard..you pretty much showed me whats up.

Re: rlbabits' Pro' Fo' Sho' Level Challenge!!! 3 New Levs!!!

Postby rlbabits on Sat May 22, 2010 4:23 pm

Wow good stuff there Jyo. Industrial Park solve is very nice. Pretty happy with my solve for that too. It's one of my best, it only uses one weight :)
hamy looks like big fella is going to be near impossible to brown good luck tho. No i have not browned it myself.
haha part one of the FC forum stimulus package complete, getting a few people to post here! :lol:

gonna hop that fence when I get the chance
old school level like that deserves the classic bucket on a chain treatment, but I might try copying some of you guys' newfangled techniques w it first

thanks, Jyo. coming from one of the most elegant solvers out there, that means something. I really want to step up my brown/green solving and plan to dissect (& shamelessly copy) some of your shuffle & Dreamer techniques.

Wow good job all! Liking what I see here. Great job hopping the fence Jyo, its not that messy actually I like it for some reason, + that was a tough level :)

Good to see you are going elegant compscure, its a rough row to hoe however.
here is my advice: The best way to begin is to mimic other players indeed your right on. but an exellent way to aquire some fc originallity is to solve bridge levels. its just so easy to come up with your own mechanisms. that will get you thinking on the right terms :) then move to trying to solve everything with one weight, that will force some new and graceful designs.
Not to boast or anything...but, with lukas sadly gone I be thinkin i'm the best here for grace and creativity ;)
feel free to pick apart any of mine you like: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/use ... rId=374392
good luck with the newfangled techniques :lol:

Yes I know :P I don't think your exactly modest either remy :)
He pm'ed me back too but i haven't seen him post in forever. Really miss lukas, he was good at this flash game. I'm not insulting you remy, your the best at solving tough levels and you can be pretty creative, in an ugly way of course :)
Ed: thanks hamy thats for sure one of my favorites, you could even ad a few more arms to it for a good extender.
