I did not finish testing this level, but it looks like you might be onto something. My intention, was to provide an over-or-under possibility, but I havent had any luck dragging it down below either. We'll give it a few days, and then ill make it easier to grab, and keep the goal location the same.

gracias compscure and mtdewd for finishing both designs

on a side note, if anyone can come up with a totally evil level
for a collab, i'd be up for it...i'd make one, but my level making
skills are still at the kiddie stage

I like your start zhyrek...pulted the ball a little higher to see how far
up the wall it would go http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11902362
if could smooth out the last static bend, it might go higher

here is my start, but no idea what to do next or how to delay the block
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11902365 or

Heres another thought. It opens the opportunity for the yellow dynamic to be used for the final propulsion into the goal. That Blue rod can be tweaked (shortened) to slow the movement to the left down a little. How the goal piece gets its final boost is beyond me at this point, but i thought I would share anyhow.

http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11903340 yellow part 2
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11903354 3

levels like this (and the two in the collab forum) are a perfect example of some of the limitations in unconnected solves. Not that im skeptical that it cant be done, but commenting on the fact that everyone just gives up when its too hard :-)

don't want to stall out the 4 year shuffle. I'll do an e2 by saturday morning if it isn't solved or someone says not to.

it's definitely a tough level (maybe the evil collab jdc asked for even). took me 3 hours and 20 saves. fwiw my solve does not look like any of the ideas posted here so far.

Working on Leo's idea, having the :dcircle: trigger the :drect:
http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11903447

I had been working on extending the sticks in the bottom: http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11903030 ,
but I had come to the idea of trying to get the last boost through the bottom ghost piece. No idea how to do that.

EDIT: Here's an idea. Can't quite get the :dcircle: to come back:

I think youre probably onto a better idea there, I tried working on some similar timing last night, but couldnt get the brown rods to fall "after" the ball went through.... see some of my other attempts above for :dcircle: action, I think we can get this.
