Rail War (F2P)

Postby apophys on Tue Jan 26, 2010 9:24 pm

An old topic revived and reversed. The inspiration is a real-life contest in MIT very similar to this.

Try to make YOUR side of the rail touch the ground!
Rules:
:upwheel: 45 Piece max for each side.
:upwheel: Only build on your side, within the large blue-edged box (above and below the rail).
:upwheel: No glitches.
:upwheel: Do not touch the green static circle in the upper left-hand corner, or the falling objects. You may grab the edge of the floor.
:upwheel: Do not edit or connect to the platform or your opponent's contraption.
:upwheel: No more than 10 rods stacked.
:upwheel: You win if your side of the rail touches the ground. In case of deadlock/sweep, the lower side wins.
New Rule:
:upwheel: Right side bot may not make the left stage force through the green circle.

Other than that, anything goes.


Here's the arena and the first bot:

Only way to beat this is to tweak this design to maximize space:

In, what, 6 weeks, nobody has thought to push the mass off? I'm disappointed.

~6k ticks.
It doesn't come down in the end, but that's only because the right side is so heavy it pushed the left stage through the green at the start.


NEW RULE: Right side may not make the stage force through the green.

It seems to me that the stack of 45 rods breaks Rule number 6. In addition, the flaw in the design needs to be corrected. Here is the current winner with the design flaw removed:
