Awesome! I'm saving this top-of-the-page post. :)

Tight Space - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=2074 A classic level of mine, small contraption space but many different solves!

A Hard Road - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=7355 Runner-up from the last Level Design Comp, challenging but fun way to get to the goal.

Retrieve - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=11793 A simple but challenging level, wait for the goal piece to slide, then bring it over!

Faster! Slower! - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=12720 The goal ball is going to fast and needs to be slowed down. (Easier version here)

Sword in Stone - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=17258 Very fun level, turn the large rectangle to the side and place it in its pedestal!

Oddhead - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=37996 Tricky level with an encouraging face, use teamwork to get the ball under!

Flipping - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=38312 Flip the rectangle in air, sort of tricky, sort of not.

Tipping Point (1) - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=41726 Fun with a little difficulty, drop the square with precision! (Easier Version)

All Around - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=46234 Very fun level that is quite challenging, literally go All Aorund to get the goal piece to the goal!

Prescription - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=51623 Awesome level, fill the bottle with pills and put the lid on!

Out There - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=63835 Go far out to one side, retrieve, and bring it to the other!

Top to Bottom - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=85959 A comp-type level, simply bring the rectangle from top to bottom!

Hang Loose (2.0) - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=88304 Very fun level, catch the square and prepare (for an awesome rhyme!?).

Underhand - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=96968 Fun and tricky level, bring the rectangle out and over!

Here is what I have... I specifically designed it with Samoo* in mind. I would like to think of it as a sequel to the level Four Balls.

...and here's the rest of my levels! :)

Sorry, I'm going to be going on a trip tomorrow and have to get all the ones that I want entered!

Lion - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=233693 Face the, two rectangles which have to somehow fit in the goal in the center, LION!

Slight Delay - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=234217 Timed throw level - in case it's needed. :)

Clap - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=254830 Very fun and easy, the design made will nearly, if you think about it really hard and believe in it, will not look like a clap at all.

Breakthrough - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=262663 This level is very interesting, the ball must be pushed in the ground to win.

Rise Up - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=262862 Very fun and simple, rise up from a low and flat work space.

Lean To - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=264441 A comp level that I like a lot, the rectangle has to lean to win.

This is Madness - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=285561 THIS IS a very fun level, bring the strangely tilted ball over.

Chink - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=290836 A simple level with a good idea, bring the ball back against the wall after it drops.

Blue Shield - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=294965 A love this level! The blue rods might trap you!

Hug (3) - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=299507 Cheating ruined the fun, but still a challenge. (Cheatable level here)

Serendipity - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=301957 Interesting level that requires stacking circles.

Hang in There - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=308720 Very fun swinging level! Badge friendly. :)

Reach Out - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=315854 Create-a-bridge level, fun and challenging.

Jammer - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=331903 Fun comp made level, get the goal piece in before it gets jammed.

Dragon Crane - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=357173 Nice aesthetics, pretty fun! Get the thin rectangle over to the left.

Down Below - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=367718 Simply fun level, bring the circle around.

Calvin & Hobbes - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=383301 You can't resist looking at it, pacifist! LOOK AT IT, LOOK AT IT!!

Throwback - http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=400001 Simple and fun level, throw it back.


And that's it. I looked through I'll my levels. Just wanted to get my ideas in the mix. Good luck everybody!

Well, I've started to try my hand at this level creating nonsense and this is what I've come up with so far.

First non-shuffle level; Lemmings: http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=401414
V2 (Replaced ball with rectangle to up the ante): http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=401435

I'm not sure which one would coincide with the difficulty of the intermediate free levels, so I'll leave it to someone else to decide.

Chance of further refining: 90%

Edit: Mixed reviews so far; a couple votes for V1, a couple for V2.

On par with 10 to 15...hm...

Most of these levels are touched up versions of current levels I have. They're not intended to be difficult, but just enough for the average play to take some thinking. I also tried to avoid the plain catapult-to-win style levels.

Flip the Lid

Image

A simple gate-keeper-esque level where the challenge isn't get the block in, but removing the dynamic.

Close the Lid

Image

You can either push the :drect: away, or get the ball in before the :drect: falls. Also an attempt at mimicking the design style of the official levels.

Rescue

Image

A level designed for a contraption/contraptions which lifts the ball up and transports it to the left.

Board to Push

Image

A two part level which involves getting the ball onto the dynamic and pushing the dynamic towards the goal.

Whip Pult Pull

Image

A three part level which involves getting the ball down and over a wall, removing a dynamic in the way and hooking the ball around into the goal. Might not be what you're looking for though.

Only 5 levels (only 1 with no ghost pieces) but not sure if it's too hard. :confused:

Bridge It: http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=400905 A basic bridge level but it's fun to do. Like you said you might edit so maybe make it shorter to be easier? :-|

Postby Dr. Phil on Tue Aug 11, 2009 8:29 am

Here are some of my favorite levels in the order of newest to oldest
    Decisions v4
      This is my take on a classic swap level. I made it possible for each ball to go over the top or through the center, or both if you so choose. I feel like this is a simple enough level that leaves enough options for solves that people will rarely have similar solves. I used this in a competition and got positive feedback for it.
      Sample Solve
    Get-away
      Get-away encompasses a type of solve that I tried to make unique to thie *new* type of level. The player will not only have to drag the balls back through the goal somehow, but they must also squeeze them together so they all fit.
      Sample Solve
    Rolling Yonder
      Rolling Yonder uses the same principle as Get-away in an easier environment.
      Sample Solve
    Drop Chute
      This is a meet-up type level where the player must ensure that both goal pieces reach the goal at the same time. They are given full control over one goal piece. They must also somehow get the goal piece outside the build area into the goal.
      Sample Solve
    Teeter
      Teeter is a simple looking level. However, it requires some thought to how both goal pieces can be fit into the goal simultaneously.
      Sample Solve
    Square Root
      This deceptively easy and stupid looking level is quite fun actually. The player is forced to use two different build spaces in order to get the square into the goal whilst overcoming friction.
      Sample Solve
    Use Your Balls
      Whether this level is enjoyed or not is up to the mercy of the person solving. This can be solved several ways, one of which is by pushing the 3 wheeled device down the ramp (the intended way) or the player could simply make a catapult.
      Sample Solve
    Imposter
      Imposter, which should be spelled impostor now that I look at it, can be solved several ways. I belive this is a fun level which has a variety of ways to solve, which means it shouldn't get too boring too fast.
      Sample Solve
    Corner Office
      Corner Office is without a doubt one of my most popular levels, having resided in the top 100 levels since its creation in December. CO was not just a level, it was an adventure into FC art. My aim was to create the first 3 dimensional level (as far as aesthetics go). And I believe I achieved that. This stunning level combined with the challenge of rotating and placing the goal piece makes this one of my stronger entries. And sorry, it has about 153 more static objects than you would prefer :P
      Sample Solve
    Whyde Load
      Whyde Load is one of my favorite levels, mainly because of the use of a lateral goal and build area, something that is rarely seen in any level. This level challenges the player to move the left goal block into the goal while somehow figuring out how to knock the rightmost goal block into the goal to achieve victory.
      Sample Solve
    Catch the Balls
      Catch the Balls was my first successful level. I made it and somehow it remained in the top 100 for several months. I think that the four balls-esque feel to this level is what made it so successful. There are TONS of ways to solve this: powered, longway, brown, unconnected etc. etc. This level is simple, fun to play, and fun to watch.
      Sample Solve
    Bridges
      Here is your obligatory level full of dynamic objects :). This level challenges the player to bridge the gap using some sort of car. The level discourages the use of catapults, but the engenuative contraptioneers will still find a way to launch that ball into the goal.
      Sample Solve

wz- if you pick any of my levels, but need to edit them for any reason please let me know if I can help in any way. Thanks.

Thanks for looking at my levels. (Remember, this is not a place to post designs for these levels. This thread is for presenting weasel with your levels and/or providing feedback/encouragement to those who have posted their own levels.)

Jdelgado06's Levels
-----------------------

Floop: http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=398693 - Nice, simple, clean. Many ways to solve with different badges, etc.

Order: http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=398635 - A nicer looking version of the first level in The Amazing Race. It seems to have gotten the best feedback. I really like this one. It's pretty easy, but still requires some thinking, and there is lots of potential for different approaches.

Chase: http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=401876 - Requires users to get to the ball before it falls off the edge. Not very hard, but a fun challenge.

...more to come

I present for you, Neebio's levels! (a couple of them anyways...)

Bioshock: I offer two versions of this level, one is easier, one is harder.

Easier: http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=240529 Smaller build space, medium task, aesthetically pleasing to boot!
Harder: http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=401839


Inline: http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=401843 Build and Goal are inline, simple yet challenging, and as always, looks nice =D


Party Poppers: http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=401849 Similar to a confetti popper, goal is to get the four GPs from one popper to the other. Confetti!


Power Conduit: http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=401862 An interesting level with multiple possibilities for solutions.
Easier: http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=401952


Minizap: http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=401880 A fun little level featuring small build, goal, and GPs. It has many possible solutions.


Into The Mix: http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=401902 Mixing stuff is great! But sometimes you don't want oranges in with the apples.. Get rid of those oranges!

Enjoy!
