thank you minisimp :cool: , just dropped x sticks off my gatekeeper after a sudden idea hit me....

but, lost x pts. on my ticks.

btw, i side with the people who belive in negative scores now, i see the light, but wont be getting it any time soon.

if you know anything about algebra... it should be 'dropped x sticks' and 'lost y points', enless you lost the same amount of sticks as pts.-in-ticks (x=y) then they both can't be x



That's exactly what he meant - he was saying that after his brilliant idea his contraption was worth the same score. (although worse in tiebreaks)

oh my gosh :sigh:
another sterling example of vdn saying something dumb... :roll: He's is saying that he lost the same amount that he gained from ticks. So no, it has nothing to do with algebra, and he said it right. Besides don't go around talking like everybody else is an idiot.

I guess when I see someone with 2 or less I will be impressed.
And I won't be surprised if all the winners are negative.


I only have 1 point left now...
So, you'll have to do better than that to impress now! :)

In fact I just worked out a solution for GateKeeper for -9 or -11 (if I can tweak it enough!).
So that would be -6/-8.

Plus someone claims 9 for Canyon (4 less than me).

And my "Be A Champ" still sucks at +2!

So winners must be -12 or less. (Or at least all our combined best designs will be :)

I think I'll submit and give up any chance of winning now...
Maybe get some work done. :(

So you solved it :rodless:? ....cause it's either that or 1) You solved it :clean: with 3 sticks , or 2) It's not :clean: and you used just 1 :woodrod:

You are aware you can't move the :goalr: into the :build: ?

Yes :rodless: Still tweaking (god knows why I bother though)
currently only working version is -3 (so no use as rods give me -4) , but concept proven for -9. (ie 3 less balls)
ie. it lands a little left or right and don't go in. So there must be some tweek that
leaves it in the middle. Well that's my theory any way.
I'm sure someone out there has already worked it out and maybe even the -11 version?
Go on fess up... Who's sitting on -11 or less for Gatekeeper?

I look forward to the end of the competition. Should be some interesting designs.

ITEM | EFFECT | SCORE |
+--------------------------------+------------+-------+
| Displacement | -6 | -6 |
| Stuck | -4 | -10 |
| Be A Champ | +2 | -8 |
| Gatekeeper | -4 | -12 |
| Canyon | +13 | 1 |
+--------------------------------+------------+-------+
| FINAL SCORE 1 |

I need a clue for "Be A Champ"! I don't even get hands off bonus for that one.
There is perhaps 1 more tick point to extract for Canyon.
I was hoping to make the negatives...

Xyle, I have a clean blue solution (not handsoff though) in 8 rods for "be a champ". So -1 point
Is that enough for you ?

Of course, I envy your -6 for Displacement and your -4 for gatekeeper.

How dumb am I? Glad you asked...
I didn't even realise you got a bonus for all blue sticks!
I'll have to look at all my solutions again now... (EDIT: Be a champ now -3, Thanks Bisam)
Thanks for the RTFM tip.

Gate Keeper using only rods, crude but gets the job done. :-)

edit by Poots - please don't post contest designs on the forums. How do you expect to win if you give out your designs?

I not going to be entering that design. Its not even close to a winning design as it was quick and dirty but worked. Was just an example, if it gives someone an idea, that's great, more power to them.

Aren't you sure you didn't miss the contest rules on tick penalties when you missed the :water:?

Yeah seriously...
I didn't think anybody would beat my -1 for be a champ.
Although, if you got handsoff, I guess that makes sense. (I didn't)
At least I still have a better score on stuck :)

The contest calculator knows all... 216 ticks... 6 points for ticks.
Actually, I think I assumed that :water: and :rodless: were jokes and I'd never
be able to seriously get the badge, so forgot about them...
That was MANY hours of FC ago, when I thought getting down to total of 20 would be brilliant. :)
