OpenThis is by far my favorite level I have made. It is small and compact while offering a challenge. It has a few dynamc pieces that add caracter to the level. It is a good level for powered and green solutions alike with more than one way to solve it, and it offers several long way challenges.

EDIT: Following levels added at the request of the good Doctor,

Lid

Dig

Triple Threat

Well, what would you recomend? It is hard to pick, and I don't want to just spam levels.

I remember liking the levels Dig and Lid. And that one level with the 3 goal balls(although that might be a bit hard). I don't think you have published those levels because I remember looking through them recently.

All levels in this post made by me.

http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=401938 Bottom Floor: pc. count: 20-ish

Goal ball starts above build area and goal zone, and must travel to the lower area.

http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=401937 Thin Ice: pc. count: 10-ish

A large and heavy goal ball must cross a weak bridge of :drect: 's.

http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=401922 Hide and seek: pc. count: 10-ish

The goal area is hidden behind one of the :drect: 's and the user has to find it. (little to easy perhaps)


http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=401913 Spike trap: pc. count: 20-ish
the user has to cross "spikes" to reach the goal.

My 2 current best:

Bridge Builder: http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=380373 An interesting idea, the user has to grab the ball with a "bridge"/car and then use the dynamic to fill the hole.

Catabridge: http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=374374 ( :lol: at the 374 repeat) A simple idea that can be done in quite a few ways. Although it is kind of big, it could be shrunk to a better size.

Hmm. I think you may have edited one of my levels there.

Anyway, back in January, I made a level called The Trap, which now has over 700 pages of designs. I have since revised it, but haven't published the result:

Entrapment

I remember when I first came to this site, I solved every level with a tank. That was, until I got to mission to Mars. After that point, I realized that the FC had so many more design possibilities. I think that this is another level that isn't very difficult, but requires players to think in a different way.

Here are some of my old levels (four months now?) that I believe match the originals in difficulty and range of solutions:


-Fill 'er Up - This level seems difficult at first, but can actually be solved in 3 pieces. This gives the player a lot of room to be creative.
Assorted Designs:
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=8255592 :brown: :champ: 3 pieces
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=8239768 :brown: :champ: :clean:
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=8227102 :green: :champ:

-Unfurl a Bridge - This was one of my very first levels. I know that there are plenty of bridge levels, but this one is easier than most, which helps to introduce new-ish players to bridges.
Assorted Designs:
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=7768547 :brown:
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=7768297
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=7779136

-Pipeworks - This could be a successor to Tube. This level is pretty difficult, and forces creative thinking. Might be a little on the tough side.
Assorted Designs:
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=8265215



I might add some more later.

I like Mr. Lemons' levels... They look nice and are creative.
One more of mine. Factory Fun
Two obvious possibilities, maybe more?

Yea. People who play can tell if time was put into making the level.
Also Weasel said "No Ghost Objects" very clearly in the OP.

Heres two that seem to fall under the category of 10-15

Easier: http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=402109
Harder: http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=402111

They are two tube pseudo-remakes that are relatively easy to solve.


Edit: Harder-er: http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=402128 <== I personally like this one. Others are too easy

The reason the ID's are so close is because they are basically different versions of the same level.

Harder-er is not so hard:
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=8848507 :champ: 4 pcs

This is a level that I made recently. I think it is much to difficult, but I'm not the judge:

@Elliot and other level over-loaders: Posting a ton of levels probably isn't going to help your chances seeing as Weasel is a pretty lazy busy guy and doesn't have the time to click/test every single level that you post.

Search through those enormous lists of yours and choose your favorite and/or most qualified levels for the intermediate f2p positions. :argh:
