Unsabotageable Contraptions

Postby schmittd on Fri Mar 29, 2013 5:34 pm

While lurking through the depths of the forums, I discovered a thread that discussed the idea of an "unsabotageable" contraption. In other words, the point was to try to create a contraption that could not be sabotaged by adding only one piece to the contraption. I thought it sounded like it could be pretty interesting, thus the point of this thread. So here is a level for which I'd like to see an unsabotageable contraption:

The Level
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?levelId=614422

And here is an example of a potentially unsabotageable contraption:

And here is an example of that contraption being sabotaged:
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11890812

Post your potentially unsabotageable contraptions for this level, and everyone else will try to break them.
After a contraption is deemed unsabotageable, I will post the design up here and post a new level. Get defensive!

I thought this one was close until... Boom.
Good idea though... does the extra piece have to be attached to one of the joints?

[Edit] http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11890837 If the piece has to be attached to one of the joints than this should do it

The extra piece can be anywhere.

I think there's only two ways to do it, but that's pretty close to unsabotageable, if you ask me. :)

http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11891332 I don't think this can be sabotaged
