I don't remember how I browsed through the wiki to find best/earliest solutions. Particularly, did you use to be able to view individual levels in the wiki? This is annoying. Help?
...YEAH figured it out. not in the wiki, in the level browser!
Do mac/PC physics still differ? In the line rider world, this was fixed with the arrival of flash player ten in... *looks it up* late 2010? Has anyone tested this since then?
If not, I have dual boot now so I totally can boot up in PC mode and check stuff...
I need to redefine boomerangs. I want to include boomerangs that don't STAY in the workspace, now that FC2 counts it as a boomerang, but I have no good way of tracking early examples of this down. sigh. will think on this. In any case,New definitions:
Boomerang: Makes it back to the workspace.
Champerang: Makes it back to the workspace and stays there.
Infinite Boomerang: Back and forth forever.
Going to add carpenter still.
Unpossible Infinite Boomerang 68 (?) piece.

watching this slowly do it's thing in another window. It's boomeranged once in 5 minutes. I shall persevere and find out how many times it boomerangs! lol But seriously, surely we can make one that is not so ridiculously slow. Even if it has more pieces I will give you the record.
...1.5 times, I think? it was really close. This is the most tedious thing I have ever had to watch in this game lol.
...made it to the workspace so maaaybe twice. god damn it I will have to watch this thing again. JHawk, curse you!
...the rods have reached their rotation maximum and have begun glitching out on me, but it boomeranged for sure a third (second?) time! wooo
...third (fourth?) time! wooo! I may be missing some of the wins if I am not paying attention for that specific moment.
...fifth? time! shoot I was typing and I missed it going a sixth time, maybe. not sure if it got back to the workspace between them though. The rod closest to the ball has finally glitched out. Been watching for 25 minutes. Will have to do this again.
...I really wish I could scrub through the playback. or slow down and rewind and fast forward. sigh. SEVEN! If it gets to 20 and is still going EIGHT! I will watch it again and pay close attention.
...NINE! and 30 minutes. it seems to need to catch the ball on the front of the paddle TEN! while it's going over the top for it to go in. wait now it's up to 12 but it hasn't gone back to the workspace, damn it! and also it was totally just swinging around. okay I think we're at nine but I could be totally wrong here. sigh.
...maybe I should start over now? but if it does get stuck it would be nice to know when. Ten?
...if you get 20 boomerangs in under 20 minutes I'll give you the record even if it's more pieces. Eleven I think. but it could be like, 15 and it could be like, 9.
...Twelve? contraption is teetering a lot more all of a sudden...
...Thirteen, got to goal three times, hasn't gotten back to workspace. four. now back in workspace.
...goal again, fourteen. goal again but no workspace. there.
...14.5 (goal), and 15 (workspace).
...this is the longest I have ever 15.5! watched a single friggin contraption. still not 16... goal again...aaaaalmost... goal again...
...I bet this was why I left. I didn't want to put myself through this. Maybe when we invent time machines the first thing I do will be tell myself not to update this thread lol. 16! finally got back to the workspace.
...if I get to 25 I might just 17.5! call it an infboom and be done, lol. hasn't collapsed yet. 17.5 again...
...it's actually been stuck for a while. it might be stuck forever. nope! whew, that would have meant I had to watch the whole thing 18! again.
...20.5! 21! it's gonna do it! coming up on one hour.
...21.5! stuck... goal again... 22!
...almost 23 twice in a row... checked the level statistics and it is 65 piece.
...22.5! goal again... stuck... 23!
...23.5.... and it just glitched into the wall. oh yay, it's out. 24. I won't tell.
...yeah, this is infboom. Cool. That was a massive ordeal. wonder how long it takes to collapse, but not gonna find out.

Yes what Skips said. super super super late response. Sigh. I'll update yours. Anyone want to tackle this for more levels, go for it! Won't update them all to have ticks unless someone beats the ticks with a tweak, and will only add you in contributors, but happy to add them!

I wanted to check some records and I discovered that there is 3pc
for Full-up. I made this few weeks earlier, so I thought that someone stole my design. But I checked my ID, then the last page of this thread and it all became clear
At least my solution is pretty big tick tweak (much less boring), so here it is: 11242709
Realized I had this
Unconnected Brown Sweep Champion - 9435142
- 3 piece - Linkzcap (& redreoicy)
which should have knocked out
Brown Sweep Champion - 8704655
- 3 piece - Linkzcap (& redreoicy/Layman/lvlark)
so your design is not gonna be included. sorry!
Gosh, you're very right. I need to go back through and re-assess pilots...
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11798620 handling 19 piece
But I get ZERO credit for it. It's wafflekins' design but just one of the weight rods deleted.
unfortunately you are the latest in a long line of tweakers so you do actually get credit :P
yes. from the OP:
rabid squirrel wrote:Also, the ones that do virtually nothing for over 10 minutes or so (about 13k ticks on my computer) will be disqualified, unless they were the only one that achieved that combination of badges.
That one definitely takes more than 10 minutes, and is not the only solution (unlike the infboom for unpossible which I watched for an hour because it is the only one in existence lol)
Huh that's annoying. I wonder why it doesn't work anymore. I am on the exact same computer as when I put it in the thread. Weird.
I decided to see if it was champ by taking a ball and seeing how close I could get it to the edge of the workspace, and judging from that your solution is champ. so I'll just replace it.
Unfortunately you have been beaten by CoCoN_16 with this solution: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11342077
of course, no way for you to know because the thread hasn't been updated. sorry...
