New Badge- Stratosphere!!?!

Postby ajb4df on Tue Mar 10, 2009 4:32 pm

I think there should be a new unofficial badge called "Stratosphere".

To achieve a Stratosphere badge, the goal object must leave the top of the screen (at maximum zoom with toolbar hidden) for at least 50 ticks. So basically it's for when you solve the level by launching it way off the screen.

I have done this (unintentionally) several times in shuffle. Here is 1 that I could find, I have others:

First, great idea!

Second, not sure it should be a badge...
Seems that there are several "achivements" that aren't quiet badges and should be in a different category such as,
Lumberjack: only :woodrod:
All Blue: :waterrod: and :upwheel: or :upwheel: :water: for short (opens more levels to a blue solve)
Long-way: :scircle: :srect: awe-inspiring solves for this, but the piece count to get one is too great.(for it to just be a badge)
Unconnected: :waterrod: :woodrod: could be a badge, but currently not considered...(it's got my vote!!)
Pilot: :goalr: :Goal piece never touches ground, if it starts there once it leaves(and it must without sliding sideways) can't touch again.
Possibly more; will look.
Also will start ignorantly using them like they are well accepted! :ninja:

This would be cool if it didn't have to stay off the screen for 50 ticks. Just 1 tick. That would be fun.

Afro didn't make that guide until ages after the stickapult was invented so the use of one should in no way be attributed solely to reading his guide.... yep :smile:

I think you are speaking of the "Pop-a-pult"... well as much as I appreciate the credit for it's creation, I must admit that I did not originally come up with it; although, I do feel as though I have refined it a bit :)

I did however create what is known as the "Drop-a-pult"
