Instead of rolling it in, see if it solves if you place the goal ball in that location already.


Sure, here you go: http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=257207
I was trying to mimic the angle of the grey circle in oozle2's design.

I understand, but my concern was with how the dynamics (including pieces) can sometimes go into green objects. I know there wasn't much momentum behind it, but I have never sat down to see just how much you need in order to make things go a little squishy.

A lot of the top 10 players posted their designs on this thread: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5553&start=0#p113787

I am unsure if they plan on releasing an official list.

I have a suggestion: it should be possible for the game to calculate the ticks for design, if it has had a victory.

The game should auto-determine a design's tick count after the victory message has been shown.

Uh, it already does that though? if you press T it will show the ticks and timer will stop when it wins.
Or do you want it to store this information with the design when saving it from victory screen?

Yes, it should store it, so that it would make the verification part of tick counts easier, I guess, and help other's know the tick counts of designs without viewing the actual design...

Same for champion badge and clean badge, except redefine forever to a certain amount of time, but this should involve a button being pressed to calculate this information; otherwise, the server(s) would encounter trouble.

For example, when the 'Determine Clean Badge' button is pressed:

Code: Select all
stage.stop();
if(tickCount <= cleanBadgeTickCountThreadhold){
  for(Piece piece: design.Pieces){
    if(piece.isOnStage()){
      return false;
    }
  }
  return true;
}
return false;


If it returns true, award a clean badge; otherwise, do nothing.

I know they were going to send the top ten names, but I was not aware of them confirming the release of the top 10 players' levels.

The Game Developer's Conference just ended today so we will probably be shipping out the confirmation and eligibility forms next week. Once we get them signed and handed back, thus confirming the top 10 winners, I'll release all the level info and some runners-up.

When is the huge press release? Also, I assume we will have an interview tour? I'm looking forward to being on the Early Show, Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien, Larry King, et al...
