LP Green Competition - Cruiser Wins

Postby ringkingleo on Sun May 19, 2013 4:40 am

Welcome to RKL's Least Piece Green comp

All solves must be completed "Green" ( using only :brown: :waterrod: and :upwheel: )
All solves may be connected, or unconnected, or however you wish, and Ticks are not accounted for
Your score will be the cumulative piece count used to solve all 3 levels
A leader board will be maintained
In the event of a tie for first place, a single tiebreaker level will be made, which will be slightly harder than any of these 3 levels, within reason. You all know my game ;-)

Submit your solves in any format, I dont particularly have a preference on how they look, but please INCLUDE the www prefix to the link.

Ok now that i got that out of my system...... on with the show.

Level 1: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?levelId=616036
Level 2: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?levelId=616038
Level 3: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?levelId=616141

Now, I realize that these are a bit harder than the last comp, but with the talent that were dealing with, I think it will be a fun competition. I have solved each of these levels (and was inspired by the fact that they are diverse enough to "hopefully" prevent a tie). There is plenty of time to submit. I am giving until JUNE 2 @ noon. You can give me any update at any time, but keep in mind that ticks are not a part of the competition, so please limit re-submissions to piece counts only. Good Luck!!!

Leader Board (ties are in no particular order, since ticks are not accounted for)
1. jdc
1. Cruiser
2. jdel
3. gunsjammed
4. HarleyDan
5. compscure
6. legotruck

Thanks for all of the awesome solves!!! You guys rock. Congrats jdc and Cruiser on sweeping the competition, but since you tied here is your tiebreaker :dance: Be sure to think it through! (and if you guys tie on this, the next one is gonna be HARD ... lol)

Tiebreaker ---> http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?levelId=616706

I second this.

I'll try to compete. Graduation is this weekend :woop: at which I am singing in the choir and playing guitar for another girl singing a solo so I'm practicing everyday for those, and I also still have track going on, districts for pole vault is this week, but now that school is done, I should be able to compete in this! Sorry I missed the last one, though I don't think I would've changed the results :lol:

lol, ya always gotta put in one easy one to break the ice and get the brain juice flowing. As for level 2 & 3, I was shooting for a non-tie-break type of happy ending.

Level 2 can be solved going either way, thats the one im counting on the most (for piece diversity).

Considering your method, I dont know if that level would have solved any easier with a round goal piece.

Level 2 was solved going both ways, pretty sweet stuff!

Great solves, everyone. Good luck jdc/Cruiser, that's a tough tiebreak.

EDIT: Side challenge for anyone who's interested. Could any of the levels have been solved more efficiently with power?

Not #1 (1pc wouldn't be powered), and I really don't see it for #3 (would need 2 pc solve power solve). Maybe #2 with a 3pc? Not seeing it, but maybe someone else does. Just thought I'd throw it out there to see if making this comp green had an impact on the optimal solves :)

it's unfortunate I did not get to see your awesome 3pc solve, compscure...my tick counter
only goes to 85,000 :cry:

on a lighter note, the only other way I can see a 3 piece (powered or not) working is using
what cruiser used to solve the level but without the water rod...here is one possibility:
