A (Totally Unexpected) Schmap Comp! Congrats id_monkey!

Postby schmittd on Tue Oct 01, 2013 5:51 pm

Due to an extremely low level of forum activity, I decided it was time for a comp. Now, jomps, mtdewd, foss, id_monkey, I expect all of you to take the effort you've been applying with unconnected to this. Rian, {???}, pawel, dmasters, DOINKSTER, and anyone else out there, I expect the same. I just want to see a little more going on in the forums. I will keep a leaderboard, which hopefully will encourage competition and trash talk. It's just like any other Hap comp, but with ID36 scoring except no penalties for ticks and a few changes in penalty/bonus values.

(Slightly modified) ID36 Scoring
Lowest score wins and in the event of a tie, lowest tick count will decide the winner.
-No glitchy solutions allowed.
-To score, add up the penalty points then subtract the bonuses.
-A 0-piece solution scores rodless, green, wheelless and unconnected but not the clean badge.

Penalties
- Not completing a level: +25
- Each piece used: +1

Contraption bonuses
:rodless: Rodless: -12 (no brown sticks or blue rods)
:green: Green: -8 (unpowered)
--- :unconnected: Wheelless: -3 (no wheels)
------- :brown: Brown: -4 (brown sticks only)
------- :water: Water: -6 (blue rods only)
Image Unconnected: -5 (no pieces are connected)

Achievement bonuses
:boomerang: Boomerang: -7 (after a victory, bring all the goal pieces back to the build area and keep them there)
:champ: Champion: -5 (after a victory, keep all the goal pieces in the goal)
:clean: Clean: -3 (clear all remains of your contraption from the landscape)
:sweep: Sweep: -3 (clear all remains of any dynamic objects from the landscape)


The Levels:
Schmap1: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?levelId=620605
Schmap2: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?levelId=620606
Schmap3: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?levelId=620607
Deadline is Saturday, October 12, 9:00 PM EST

I would prefer all submissions be in the following format:
1. (design link for level 1) (badges) (score for this level)
2. (design link for level 2) (badges) (score for this level)
3. (design link for level 3) (badges) (score for this level)
Total score: (total score)

New comer question..
Just wanting to clarify, if I build a design with only brown rods, because its green, will get a score of -8 + (-4)= -12 ?
Thanks.

Edit -

Ok, I'm sorry to be picky, but it would help a lot if you guys could submit like this:

1. http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=xxx :green: :unconnected: -2
2. http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=xxx :brown: :champ: 5
3. http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=xxx :clean: :sweep: 1
Total score: 4

It would make me the happiest guy on earth. Thanks!

My submissions were not even good enough to rank on an empty leaderboard.

A Schmap 1 I was working on. http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11961636

Edit;
Did I calculate my actual Schmap 1 submission correctly? = 6 ? 9pc :sweep: - I just realized I gave the wrong badges. Not green or wheelless. I do believe it is still 6 points.

Sorry.

Thanks! mtdewd deserves some of the credit; his out-of-place solve on the shuffle thread inspired me to shave off two more pieces on the first and last level.

Schmap2, however, resisted my attempts to achieve a -35 point solve... I think there is probably an optimal solution somewhere between these two, but I couldn't seem to find the right tweak:

try4: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11964606

Haven't been on the site in a while and missed this comp, but thought I'd try to optimize the solves:

Here's a -35 for level 2:
