@Brian It was only the qualifier, there were no eliminations yet, so sure you can submit :), but you have to solve both of the levels because you can't get an immunity on the first one.
Yeah, it was kinda a weird level, but I really wanted to see the things that can be done by solving a "design", although I didn't really do the best job of abusing the features available.
News to keep you motivated! We've got not only a solve for round two, but somebody has submit a design that will earn him an IMMUNITY from the next round! :)
Ok, so if anybody wants to join late they may, and also I won't be able to update the competition until at least around 1:00 tonight, so that may give people extra time to submit as long as you do before I update the thread.

Ok, guys, it's getting heated:
Brian joins and almost gets an immunity in round two, but his design doesn't champ. gunsjammed, however, pulls off an incredible feat and secures himself an immunity.
I'm dealing out a hot serving of WHACHOUT! as round three turns up the difficulty with a sweet entree of rectangular transport and a mouthwatering sidedish of pUzZLe.
I stink at this haha ^
So, yeah, you guys get a whole week for this one.

So, I've got three immunity submissions already.
DOINK, you know that you had an immunity round one, so you are still in the competition.

marjo, in your comp does hands off mean not attaching and not moving or just not moving the goal piece?

Just no moving it, you can attach things to it if you want.
So far we've got four submissions, including one longway!
Alright, muchachos. Let's get submitting! Remember the deadline is Saturday Night at 11:30.


Ok, next round! Because everybody got an immunity in the previous round, we are skipping straight to round 5! There are no more immunities available, but just beat it without champing it to win. Everybody must submit for this round to move on, because we skipped round 4, but you guys have until Saturday night.

Alright! We've got one solve for this round already! Mark your calendars for the end of the round, Saturday night!
Now I got three solves. Remember, everyone has to submit because we skipped a round, even if you had an immunity.
Edit: Make that four five solves!

Honestly, I have level concepts, then depending on how many people are left I make them easier or harder so I don't have the final level yet, but I think I know about how many will be moving on, so if I have time tonight when I get home, I'll post the next level :smile:.

Ok, so here is the new level EARLY, but I'm not updating the thread right now: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=12029044
You can only build inside of the (half) box of ghost pieces on the right side.
You can move any of the existing doodads inside the (half) box of ghost pieces on the right to anywhere else (but don't modify them).
The rod that is part in and part out of the box can be dragged (by the joint inside the box, but only to another place inside the box) and you can attach to it. Things outside the box you can not do anything to at all.

This ghost piece box is the thing made of two ghost pieces on two sides, and to green pieces on the other two sides, on the right of the level.
This is an EARLY release, the deadline for the previous level hasn't ended yet.

Read the rules twice, it's very simple. Only build inside the box, move the doodads inside the box anywhere. Drag the joint of the half in-half out rod and connect to it.

Edit: I originally thought if somebody didn't want one of the doodads, they could just drag them somewhere where they don't do anything, but to conserve pieces, I WILL let you delete them, but only the ones that are completely inside the ghost piece box.

Super Edit!
Next round posted, solves posted make sure to read the rules up above!
Nobody got out this past round, good job everybody!

Anyway, we've already got one solve for round 6! It's gonna be exciting!

Yep! Very nice job you two, a detoured path for erucspmoc, and a 29 piece solve for doinkster!

Update, we've got two solves so far for this most recent round!

No way compy! You have some nicely used doodads and fluid mechs!
Next time I update, I'll change your name to compscure, which I come to believe was your original name?

thanks, marjo. Definitely runs a little nicer now than what I had before bed last night when I posted. Always tell myself I'm gonna stop tweaking when I get it to solve. Never seems to work out that way.

Not worried about how I'm listed. Just keep the fun levels comin' :xd: and I'll keep trying to hang in there.

Thanks for the kind words about my levels! Actually, though, next round I won't be making any levels, that'll be on you guys. That's right, you better practice your level making abilities as well as your solving ones!

I only know how to make basic levels. I don't know how to make the magic yellow rods.
