Increased Difficulty Level Comp

Postby ScienceGuy2012 on Mon Jan 30, 2012 5:01 pm

So I'll see how many rounds once I see the competitors.

We will use the Dr.Phil scoring method.I glitched these levels so they could be extra difficult.I make the extra difficulty a challenge.

The tougher ones for round 1 are:

http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11683735
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11683750

Lightning Badge times:
first level:456
second level:309
third level:1250(too lazy 2 actually test it cuz I suck at extenders and custum harpoon guns)

lightning is hard to get here so lightning would be +10 on the first and second and +15 on the third. Water would be a great challenge: 10 on the first and second and since it's literally impossible on the third whoever does the water design on the third autoatically wins. Rather than Dr.Phil's no glitching, we'll -7 for every glitch. It's worth glitching the third level further, after all, the lightning badge almost makes up for it and most FCers aren't familiar with extenders. If you were in any of The Greatest Contraptioneers videos, you have quite a good chance.

good luck!

no deadline until I get some competitors

I will post my designs but you can't copy or use them:

Even if you're going to use a pre-existing scoring method, you should still state how that scoring method works.

Dr.Phill:
How the game works

-Each person starts out with 100 total points
-Each rod used is -1 point
-Each Unpowered wheel is -1 point
-Each powered wheel used is -2 points
-Not completing a level is -33 points
The Only way to achieve a positive score is to earn badges.
Team solves will be accepted and put in a different category than singles.

How to earn points(badges)

A green solution: +3 points(use no powered wheels)
A brown solution: +3 points (only rods/sticks used)
A boomerang solution: +3 points (bring all goal pieces back to the start area)
A champion solution: +2 points (keep the ball in the goal)
A lightning solution: +2 points (beat the level in less than the recommended number of ticks)
A clean solution: +2 points (clear all remains of your machine from the stage)

Points and Extra Credit
The maximum total score you can possibly earn is a 100/100. You can exceed 100 points by earning extra credit. You can earn 2 extra credit points by earning a like badge in all three levels.
For example, if you got a 100/100 but you got a brown and clean badge for all three levels, then your total score is then 106/100.

Extra Credit values

:boomerang: on all 3 levels: 3 points
:green: on all 3 levels: 2 points
:champ: on all 3 levels: 2 points
:brown: on all 3 levels: 3 points
:clean: on all 3 levels: 3 points
:lightning: on all 3 levels: 2 points
Protip: Just like on a normal test, if you are wise enough, you will know where you can afford to lose points that will be made up by earning the extra credit.

How to score individual assignments
This might be a bit confusing, but hang in there, here is how to score an assignment

- Start out by adding up the negative points for rods and wheels
- Make a note of that total
- Add up the amount of positive points for badge completions
- Add the 2 numbers together (this is your score for the assignment
- A score will look like -12, -5, or +1: These are how many points you add or subtract from your starting total (100)

Grading Scale

100-90 A
89-80 B
79-70 C
69- 60 D
59-below F

Here is a calculator to help you calculate: http://fc.therisenrealm.com/tools/scorecalc?ruleset=DrPhilAssignmentComp the calculator doesn't work

Does this mean I have to make a new number 3?
