Obscure Badge Research (aka what I do in my spare time)

Postby rabid squirrel on Sun Jul 05, 2009 7:52 pm

Image (This thread needs that smiley)

Anyway, I'm looking for less-known badge threads and here's what I've found so far:

Kinda Obscure
Carpenter - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... f=5&t=6392
Starting Positions (HandsOff) - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... f=5&t=1042
Desert - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... =5&t=10364
Snail - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... f=5&t=1612
Lightweight - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=6999

Obscure but somewhat accepted
Chain - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... f=5&t=6145 (whole thing has to be connected)
Goal Champion - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... f=5&t=4385 (hides the word "goal" in the goal)
Reverse & Boomerang - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... f=5&t=1945
Reverse (only reverse) - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... f=5&t=3021
Touch the Floors - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... ?f=5&t=406
Unattached - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... f=5&t=2069
Half-Stays - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... f=5&t=4353
Basket Training Camp - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... ?f=3&t=836
Half Boomerang - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=8975
Magnum Scoring - viewtopic.php?f=3&t=7817 (low pieces*ticks)
- and again? - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=8914
Fastest Designs with Limited Pieces - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... f=5&t=8900

Very small threads:
Floored (sort of) - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... f=5&t=5118 (this could be a good idea, if the ball had to touch the ground the whole time)
Advanced (whole contraption) - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... f=5&t=4599
Badgeless - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... f=5&t=3979 (It's likely there is another one of these out there...)
Stratosphere (goes above top of screen for over 50 ticks) - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=5379
Safety Badge (nothing can fall off the map) - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... 30#p155189 (not even a thread really lol)

Not feasible for use in simplest/speediest records: (but still cool)
The Long Way - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... f=5&t=1671
Exploring - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... f=5&t=2955
Multi-Purpose Contraptions: http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... p?f=5&t=98

Earlier duplicate threads
Hiding Goal (same as goal champ) - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... f=5&t=3643
Lumberjack (same as carpenter) - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... f=5&t=4205
Golf Badge (handsoff) - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... ?f=5&t=543
Broken (unconnected) - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... f=5&t=1854
Wheel Challenge (rodless) - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... f=5&t=1059
Rodless (older thread) - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... f=5&t=3730
Airborne (pilot) - http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/v ... ?f=5&t=304

(no alternate starting points, there have been 10 million of those)

I KNOW there was an old handsoff thread, I can't remember what it was originally called and can't seem to find it. Anyone know?

Also, if there are any other threads you know of like this, please let me know :) (no matter how dumb the idea is, as long as it could possibly be a badge)

well, in a way I am. I'm sort of creating a list of stuff to add to badge records threads one by one.

But I'm also just curious. (Obviously many of these won't ever be added)

A better explanation of Advanced is that the whole contraption, execpt the goal object must return to the build area... And stay there...

Another thing I was thinking about, but due to the *Great* demand for advanced solves, never posted is the Expert, a little harder than advanced.

Expert means that your whole contrapion goes to the goal area... Where it stays

I remembered (and found) this one from back in March:

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=5379 Stratosphere badge

ajb4df wrote: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.

nice... but I don't think we should make anymore official badges, It's just getting too complex

Wooo, no way Linkzcap, that's a crazy insane idea...

The origin of Pilot: Airborne.

That's called pilot...

- Pilot Image (ball cannot touch any surfaces or dynamic (orange) objects, this also applies after it achieves victory)

What are you trying to say? I know I didn't specify anything about the dynamics, so that is why it is basically the origin of Pilot. My thread came first.

There was a challenge, not so much a badge, a long time ago that had the following purpose: Make one contraption that can complete as many of the levels as possible with just small tweaks (But the overall form of the contraption stayed constant).
I can't find it now..

I thought you had just posted it. No clue why I didn't realize it was old >.<

EDIT: what if I made a "slowest badge records" thread :xd: That would be so weird and funny...
