Race Arena

Postby smlefo on Mon Sep 08, 2008 1:21 pm

Hey all,

New challenge if anyone wants to participate. If not, oh well.

Rules:

1. You can build whatever you want, using any amount of parts, etc... on your half of the building area
2. You can't sabotage your opponent (on the top section)
3. None of this "tweak a little to win", then "tweak a little to beat that tweak", then "tweak some more"... you must create something NEW every round.

Winner is decided by which side the red plank falls in... no other means of decision (side the plank falls is in the loser). If the plank gets stuck, then you both lose.

I know the map isn't PERFECTLY even... consider it a handicap for whichever side is deemed to be harder.

Map: http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=21198

pretty fun challenge, but I just owned you and probably will control the challenge for a while.

Oh yeah? Beat you with my first attempt. Very simple, so someone will beat it very easily

Yeah, me too. heh


http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1447787 Without even tweaking it. This competition is fun and all, but will pretty much just devolve into who can build the better catapult. Should prolly limit the number of wheels or something.

well, mine and digrae's both hit the ball faster than yours, and i think sammon, who posted his winning contraption first, hit the ball harder than yours causing it to roll faster more than uneven sides.

i guess we should move on with sammon's since he posted a victorious one first, but if want to skip rebuilding and move on to mine or digrae's in the spirit of competition we could... i'm not sure whose is faster.

I had to use the Force at the very end, but I didn't see any rule against that :twisted:

Edit:
Or maybe I should have just submitted this one instead...
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1454631

... it's a teensy bit faster.
