Dang, I've been trying to do that longway for a while now, and you rip it out just like that :monocle:
you're becoming very good at longways

Today's objective: Awash Underground

It will be basically like most of the other undergrounds you guys do. The catapult will go off to the right side and fling the ball to a waiting catcher on the left. The catapult will need a lot of power, since that is a long distance to throw.

Here is how far I got.

Embarrassing, isn't it? The goal area will be hard to maneuver around and the balls get stuck on the chain so the thing won't go.

Any suggestions?

Evilclone, just by adding a triangle of :waterrod: s I got it to almost go far enough... This also proves the chain is too short, and that the weight will pull it off.

Wow! Did you get the idea from me? I was constantly lengthening the swinging arm, which reduced the speed ball. I never thought to jerk the chain like that.

Chris, we can lengthen the chain later if we need to.
Priorities:
1.Get catapult to the other side
2.Make catapult throw.
3.Get in basket.
4. Reel in basket.
I think we need to put enough :woodrod: on top of the thrower to keep it from throwing early, but not enough weight to stop the ball from rising above the goal area.

P.S. I didn't think a triangle would work. It would've been more likely to trap the balls than keep them flowing.

Edit: I think we should stop this line of inquiry and try something less mind-boggling. In my opinion, we should try Back and Forth, around the left obstacle.
This is how far I currently am. http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=8906893

Here's step 1:

On Back and Forth, I tweaked it to add a wheel, and made a bridge:

Got closer on back and forth
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=8966607

Also, I think Back and forth counter-clockwise is easier to do. Take a look:

Beaten to the punch! No! Oh well, its not about the glory. Oh wait, yes it is...

I think we should get Saek to update the list. Starting to lose count of the new ones. The team should be proud, we finished that back and forth one in an hour.
Guess what? I just realized we solved every level longway 2x except junkyard. Guess we know what to do now, hehehe.

yeah... well kind of for around the Bend and Rolling Away, those are a little glitchy but done, yes

and Saek doesn't update this anymore, a mod has to do it, Hap did it last time :) you can make a list of longways to be updated, go a page or two back and you'll see that i made a list, just include the ones after that

Here is a wip on a junkyard one, I really don't know where to go from here though...

Note the little trapdoor, that would allow the goal object exit if a chain was attached to it.

If you guys aren't in the mood for junkyard, we could try down under around the top object.
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=8972213
So I have the catapult and the catcher, but absolutely no way to get it in the goal after it gets around.

If you think the catapult idea isn't viable, we could always try a monorail type device.

Edit: Whoops, wrong link. I'll put the correct one up.

Wrong link :O

Edit: Maybe this will work:

If we get the pult to go past the goal area when it goes off, it will bring the gb into the goal! (Not the catapult is much simplified)
