Over a long period of time, designs converge if they are built on the same idea. So similarities does not imply cheating.

If two are the same pixel for pixel though, it is a bit of cause for concern.

I just don't see a pixel for pixel exact design being legit. Also notice that .net hasn't posted since this whole issue came up. It doesn't seem right to me. I saw both their designs before this whole thing started and wondered to myself if they were pixel for pixel. Personally, I don't think it's legit, but i'll leave that up to the judges to decide.

Displacement: -1 :green: :brown: :handsoff: :champ: :clean:
Stuck: 6 :green: :handsoff: :champ:
Be a Champ: 13 :clean:
Gate Keeper: 6 :handsoff: :champ:
Canyon: 21 :handsoff:
Total: 45

As I said elsewhere, I'm definitely new to this. But I'm happy with my 45. I'm just not used to the unpowered designs. I have a couple of unpowered concept saves that aren't solved yet. And I love the designs that unfold in complicated ways.

Also a big thank you to slgeo1, my girl friend, who made some major contributions to my effort.

Glad you enjoyed it as much as I did. I woke my wife up to show her...she didn't get it and wasn't too happy that I woke her.

Truly Fantastic! While I was definitely wowed by the winning designs, I'm finding many of the non-winning designs(powered and unpowered) just as jaw-dropping.

I have had a brilliant idea!
How about runner up T-shirts for anyone who managed a score of say...
Let's pick a number now...
-9 or less.

I assume you have T-shirts?

Like I said before, I think that if a specific approach to solve a level is worked on long enough, over time it will get to it's fastest, most efficient point. There is no way that aiming for that point is a unique thing, probably hundreds of us tried for the same thing. The closer any two designs get to this theoretical "point" the more similar they become. However, that being said I think that two designs are very very likely to appear almost exactly the same but a perfect match I find hard to swallow. We are human and the odds are stacked very strongly against that.

For example I believe that these two designs are legit even though they are really close - they just both got really close that that "point":

I don't have anything to back that up, it's just a hunch.

Is there a prize for Most Amusing Fail?

http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=6835135


I cannot tell you how proud I am that I managed to get from the above design, to this Clean Green Hands-Off Champion...though its still too slow and too many pieces to be competition-worthy.

Some of the top ten guys said they were just typing in http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=??????? and kept going through them until they found good designs to get low scores. They said it didn;t matter if it was published if you put in any number it would show the design. After hearing that I think the contest is somewhat rigged. People didn;t have to be creative they just had to go through all the designs until they found one to change slighty. After hearing this I tested it you can view any design published or unpublished. I think some deeper digging is needed to determine winners.

Displacement [-10 in 184 ticks]
Stuck [-6 in 60 ticks]
Be a Champ [-4 in 216 ticks]
Gate Keeper [-16 in 97 ticks]
Canyon [+7 in 295 ticks]

FINAL SCORE: -29 with 852 ticks


Anyone want to compare Displacement with this one?
