Paid (Official) Levels- Badge Challenges

Postby jonnychoob on Sat Aug 01, 2009 5:52 am

I dug up rabidsquirrel's ideas for the new levels and noticed that many of them were still unsolved, even though a lot of them look possible.

http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=8782139 - 18 pieces - Pit and Pendulum - :brown: :boomerang: - Sp3000 (ID36 & gleeson9)

If you have any more ideas, post them here.

[X] - theoretically possible, but likely impossible in actuality (according to rabidsquirrel)

:siren: - my favorites.

Tote 'em Pole - I swear :green: :champ:'s been done

Stuck - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=6462&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&start=20#p157674

Sisyphea - I swear I've seen someone do :brown: :champ: in the submissions, but it took a lot of pieces. I don't think they did it efficiently...

More Balls - The :sweep: one's also :clean:

Yeah some of them might have been done already, the thread i got it from probably just hasn't been updated for a while.

Woops, a bit of a misunderstanding on stuck. Where it says (13 piece) there used to be a link there... I meant to get rid of all the "simpler" challenges and keep it to badges that have never been accomplished. I'll edit that out.

Pit & Pendulum :clean: :green: :champ: - 4 pieces

I'd already achieved a champ for Tote 'em Pole :green: :champ: - 7 pieces
...and rabidsquirrel has it in the records so I've no idea why he has that in question.

is there a reason for this thread? It's been less than a week since I last updated, and the ideas are all there... Oh well, I'll update anything there that is posted here.

Under Over - Clean Brown Champion - 8ight piece - FailUR (&{???})
I made an overtly convoluted original design, and {???} and I both contributed equally to tweak it down to 8 pieces.

http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=8782084 Skip straight to 20 :P

Now I'm done :P

(Somehow, after this, the clean boomerang seems to look a little easier...)

Failed 16pc attempt...you could probably get a 17pc from this:

I should mention...

- I made this list in like an hour and didn't really contemplate a lot on it, hence the mistakes...
- this is the 4th (I think) post in the Paid Badge Records thread (was supposed to be the 2nd but I forgot :xd: )
- I will update the ideas thread in that thread as well as the records OP

I don't really get how I was trying to get activity in that thread and nobody cared and then there's suddenly a whole lot of activity in this thread :confused:

Well, this got ignored in the other thread, maybe you guys can cast opinions here:

I'm thinking about adding a new badge for the thread...

Options:
- Carpenter/Lumberjack (all wood rods)
----- would affect 12 designs
- HandsOff (don't movie the goal piece from the starting position)
----- would be applicable for 9 of the 21 levels
- Badgeless (does not earn any badge)
----- would not be possible for Default, and is already achieved for 3 designs (ones with :badgeless: ) - otherwise would require exactly one for every level
- Pilot (does not touch the ground, applies after it reaches the goal as well)
----- would only be possible for 7 of the 21 levels, but rules could easily be made for most others
- Unattached (ball not connected)
----- would be applicable for 9 of the 21 levels
----- 3 solutions are already unattached (not counting unconnected designs)

Yeah the paid badge records thread always gets bumped off the first page, and the Ideas section isn't really noticed by many people. That's why I made my own thread :p

Only add carpenter. The rest of those badges are worthless and don't add anything - especially the evil pilot badge of leechiness.

Well, I updated my ideas post :)

Note that I'm not including piece reductions as of 8/4, just new badge combination ideas. You can find piece reduction opportunities easy enough.

It caused a lot of leeching for like the first week, but nowadays pilot solutions usually require much more thought and are equally fun to watch, and almost all of the "leeched" solutions have been beaten by more imaginative ones. Plus, if you look at these levels, it's be rather difficult in most of them to leech a pilot solution.

But thanks for your opinion :P
