The greatest contraptioneers V3?

Postby rianbay812 on Sat Nov 13, 2010 11:06 pm

I read through rlbabit's history of fc thread and was reminded of the "greatest contraptioneers" video. I went to youtube and looked up both of the videos when I realized how much better we all are and how many people were also missed.

Should we put another video together? If so, we should compile all of who should be in it, and search for the two best contraptions of each person. This way, no one is playing favorites, and no one is left out. We would also need someone to record. I have a bad track record of technology and organization.

What do you think? FC has advanced far beyond what used to be thought impossible.

This would be great!
Like you say, Fc has advanced and we are capable of more advanced things.

Did you happen to miss the part with Nurket, Entity, and Sumaleth?
Because they are all much better than you

To be honest, we haven't done much since the last video.

Making your own video would be great rianbay but if you think a greatest contraptioneer video full of your designs would match the previous ones, you're wrong.

And that isn't meant to be taken offensively. Like zhyrek said, Nurket, Entity, and Sumaleth are better than all (or at least most) of us.

The video I watched didn't even have sumaleth in it. The one I saw showed tons of designs that I used to think were awesome but now am unimpressed. I believe that I can make every single design on the V2 video. Not to say that nurket and Entity are bad, but if they were to come back, they wouldn't believe most of the things we have accomplished. To be honest, there were two quotes in particular that made me want to do this. And let me find them in a minute.

But I wanna recognize the people who aren't in the previous videos mostly. And yes, there are selfish reasons as well, but if you are gonna trash me for wanting to make a video all about myself, then don't put me in it. It's not a video "full of [my] designs", and I have to also disagree with matching the previous ones and say we would exceed the previous ones.

sounds good. But whoever wants to make the video should set up the thread so things can be organized their way.

Don't get me wrong, I'm happy with the idea. Just wasn't ok with you dissing the classics
And if I'm going to do one, it's definitely going to be more creative based, less brute forcey

Stage A of FC-ness: Be a noob, create incredible works of creativity that are horribly inefficient
Stage B of FC-ness: Learn about the term "brown", and stack HUGE weights everywhere to get things done. Inefficient
Stage C of FC-ness: Start using brown weights a little more efficiently and make better stuff
Stage D of FC-ness: Remember how much fun you had playing around with powered wheels, but find yourself limited because brown poisoned your creativity
Stage E of FC-ness: Create Efficient, Powered wheel based designs that are aesthetical
Stage F of FC-ness: Integrate all concepts together into a powergreenbrown mush
Stage G of FC-ness: Effectively and Efficiently use all pieces in harmony <-- SEE THIS? THIS IS WHERE THE BEST DESIGNS COME FROM :D

I wholly agree with Zhyrek. I'm probably in 4. A bit back in 4 though.

I'd also like some of my designs in the video. And Jyo, your designs are some of the greatest, so don't worry, some of them will definitely be in the vid i guess. x]
