Postby ID36 on Wed Feb 12, 2014 8:44 am

Welcome to ID36's "What happened to 2013?" Competition.

It's been a while since my last competition. So long in fact that I didn't host one last year.
Well, dust off those unconnected and rodless patterns and get ready for mayhem!

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.

- Each piece used: +1
- Every 50 ticks: +1

ID36, say my solve is 101 ticks, do I round down to 100 ticks and add 2 points for ticks or round up to 150 ticks and add 3 points for ticks? I guess I am asking, do we round to the nearest 50 or just round down or up? Thanks

I am pretty sure the way it works is anywhere from 0-49 is +0, 50-99 is +1, 100-149 is +2, etc.

Doinkster, dmasters answered it perfectly for me :)

OK, so compscure is the first to enter and slams down a respectable set of solutions. Let's see if anyone tries to rival his entry.

Rodless solutions get green as well except when powered wheels are attached to the goal piece.

holy hell that was some tweaking. shaved a bunch off my quicky solves, but probably not nearly enough.
and I got a gnawing feeling I'm missing something on one of em

edit:
:doh: definitely didn't shave near enough
just did a test solve in 5 minutes on different method that'll beat the Cranium I tweaked down for hours
cruel damn game
:argh:

OK, so Compscure has resubmitted some impressive solutions in order to extend his lead. Is it enough to hold the lead? *evil grin*

dmasters is the second entrant to slam down a triple whammy and lands in at second place. Let's hope there's more to come from him.

Is anyone going to dethrone Compscure? (not sure which of the old-skoolers play anymore)

Time for an update cos boy there's been some mad shizzle these past hours.

Doinkster enters the fracas with an entry so hot even Peter Piper couldn't calm it with his panpipes. We are talking breathing down Compscure's neck crazy. Compy, better get tweaking bro or your solutions could be yesterday's news!

Following that, dmasters jumped in like a ninja with his solutions.

Hot on dmaster's heels was dragon_man with the 4th entry to get the leaderboard hotting up!

And just when you thought the smoke had cleared and the dust had settled, the don mega crusher whets his appetite for destruction and drops a PM with some tasty delights. So tasty in fact that both Compy and Doinkster should be checking their rearview mirrors!

Well, there have been a number of updates these last few days but nothing to shake up the order of the leaderboard. I was hoping to ignite some inspiration by saying that the optimal total hadn't been met but what with compy updating like FC is going out of fashion, I have to say the competition have their work cut out. Let's see if there's any last burst from the rest of the pack or even a new competitor. Best of luck, guys!

Spent what seems like hours :munch: and cutting down on the points.... Hopefully enough to rope me up from the bottom of the leaderboard :-|

Finally got around to solving Cranium... but I think I used a few too many pieces.

I noticed that the official submission form does not include badges... is that intentional?

Holy Moly Roly Poly with cream on top!

Crusher has leveled with Compy! It's just a matter of ticks unless either of them score another point.
In other news id_monkey, who has been mistaken for me due to the username, entered the comp and lands in at 3rd place hot on the heels of Crusher and Compy.

With little time left, I feel the final hours could get very interesting!
