m2m :brown: :boomerang: in 15.

I'm sure a lot can be improved, especially the 'chains', which aren't really my forte.

I know the drawbridge chain can be 2 instead of 3. As for the chain on the balls. Those get touchy, way to many variables.


Ohh and Higher Green in 3. http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1757832

that makes it 14 then. not gonna bother changing the rest, I'll leave that up to the creativity of this forum.

edit: with a little help from WhyT we get down to 12.

Level 21 U Turn - Normal Clean in less

This seems like a simple 5-piece. Somebody must have done it before.

I saw this solution and I couldn't help but tweak it. I removed 2 pieces to get this 10 piece solution:

WOW, lots of updates to do...

Awash - Clean; 17 pieces (takes some patience)

This does work for real, I looked again, and it worked...

ZNF, that just plain doesn't work for me, I can't include it :( I've run it 4 times now... the same 7 balls get stuck. Maybe you could tweak it a little bit to make the ball that aaaaalmost doesn't fall off (7th to last I think it would be) fall off a little better? :P

MrZNF wrote:Full Up - Clean, unattached; 4 pieces

Lots of patience required, but it works, and that's what counts =D

That's been running for 15 minutes and the pink box is still halfway in the goal, so I'm disqualifying it for taking too long :P (over 10 minutes of slooooooooowly moving off the edge :xd:)

reach up, green in 4 pieces :P

Sorry, but there's a brown solution in 1 piece and a brown champion solution in 3 pieces, and green is just a subdivision of brown. :sigh:

Yeah, maybe I should look through the "simplest solutions" thread... see if I can find an older or simpler clean solution. For now though, that works :P

I already took off like 3 or 4 pieces. I tried taking that little lip off and just got tired of tweaking it.

Too bad though it's been beat. And beat very well might I add.

I feel stupid. I don't know what I was thinking. But is it at least the winning champion? Or do you not want to list it separately?
