Solved Bring it Down too alot earlier, but I forgot to post
http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=9585867 About 10k designs before bskings
And askillgn, I have to say I really love the levels you bring here, they are quiet a challenge.
I'd ask that maybe to make the whole point system more fair, leave a level up for a week before it becomes devilish, and give points to everyone who solves it so the points simply don't go to whoever is on when it is posted and can work on it first.
I've gonna start working on Sticks now, I think I got an idea

Thanx, and yeah, I have to do something about the scoring. I think I'll start a new competition, instead of this. I'll have to think through the rules a bit more than this time. I think i'll end the "everlasting" challenge after 20 levels.

BTW: I had to give the points to the first one posting his solution in this thread... :)

I disagree, I really like the everlasting challenge. Its a lot of fun to know where exactly to go to get a fun and challenging level. The scoring really doesnt matter to me, but I like how you do it and how often you update! :)

Agreed^
And the scoring really doesnt matter, I was just making a suggestion since you were using it.
BTW, where do you get the levels? All of them are great quality and really challenging

Man that is strange, when you add some things to the design that doesnt affect your first part in any way it sometimes doesnt work....I'll see if I can finish that later, you got the sticks out a lot better than I did.

Uhmmm... I make them. :cool:
The thing is that I've started spending more time making levels than actually playing them, and I try to think them through.

Ah, too bad, i think I could have gotten it. Yeah, nice design, should get champion points as well.

Oh well then I'll work on sticks or claustrophobia instead.

Edit: Nice, ninjaed by a new challenge.

Thank you. Well there is no real original ideas, it is not particularly elegant and the only badge it gets are champion which one would have to work to avoid, but it gets the job done. I kinda regret not naming my link I went fishing - with a basket though.

I have played FC for maybe six days now, I just discovered the wiki, nice to know what the badges mean, and what people are talking about when they say "black hole". :)

Thank you. :) The fishing was mostly about tweaking until it would stay in the basket. I am still not very good at the unfolding brown stuff. The best I have made of that kind is probably the hanging guide in the fishing solution, not very impressive.

You beat me to roundabout. I tried to brown it only to give up. Then I tried powered. This was the closest I have made.

Great and simple solution, you did the same I tried, i just couldn't get enough power on the fling even with twenty long rods, nice way you amplify the force.
