A Hap (py Holidays) Hazard Competition, It's all over!

Postby Wafflekins on Thu Dec 12, 2013 5:10 pm

Hello everyone! My name still isn't OfficiallyHaphazard, but guess what I have for you guys! One Three Five levels for you guys to make contraptions for that I never would have thought of!



And as for the scoring... well, you should know the scoring by now.

Haphazard Competition Scoring 2.0
Scoring will be like golf, where the lowest score wins, and is outlined below.

Not completing a level: +90

:waterrod: Each rod or stick: +1 :woodrod:
:upwheel: Unpowered wheels: +2
:ccwheel: Powered wheels: +4 :cwheel:

Achievements:
:green: A green solution: -10 (use no powered wheels)
:rodless: A rodless solution -20 (only wheels)
:boomerang: A boomerang solution: -7 (bring all goal pieces back to the build area, where they stay)
:water: A water solution: -6 (only water rods used)
:champ: A champion solution: -5 (keep all goal pieces in the goal)
:brown: A brown solution: -4 (only rods/sticks used)
:lightning: A lightning solution: -4 (beat the level in less than or equal to the recommended number of ticks)
:clean: A clean solution: -3 (clear all remains of your machine from the stage)
:sweep: A sweep solution -3 (clear all remains of dynamic objects from the stage)
:handsoff: A hands-off solution -2(don't move the goal piece of the starting place)(won't score if it is outside the build area)
:badgeless: a Badgeless solution -1

Note: no glitchy solutions allowed.


Please try to follow this format when submitting designs!

Why did you get rid of the unconnected badge? It's one of my favorites and it's possible that I already had one or more designs using it :ninja:

I never realized Hap2.0 doesn't have the unconnected badge. Should I add it to the scoring as -6?

sorry folks, looks like you'll have to go for other badges :3

Yay a new comp! I will definitely be trying my hand at those levels, I don't think I can come anywhere near id_monkey though especially if unconnected is added to the badge list :ssh:

Also, does anyone know if http://fantasticcontraption.com/tools/s ... et=HapComp works with this scoring system? Because that would make my life much easier...

I miss carpenter almost as much as unconnected.

Just from a quick test, it doesn't include sweep or badgeless, and it detects hands-off but doesn't award points. It does give a nice score breakdown that you can modify for the missing badges, though.

Hey waffle, if a design achieves water, does it achieve brown too?

Just submitted my designs, good luck to all!

And sadly, the score calculator does not work for this comp. :sigh:

I can't say I'm not impressed by the submissions already! Good scores from everyone so far.

Remember you guys have 2 and a half weeks to submit anything. I hope to see 10 people in this by the end, even if they only send in one set of designs :)

Tweaking off the extras. Having a fit with the :lightning: times. Fun stuff though.

Is there a tiebreaker?
I have a couple with identical scores- wondering whether to submit the faster one or just the more impressive one.

Tiebreaker will be another level. Grinding down ticks on every design would be annoying.
