This is educational. This is good if you want to become an engineer. (engineers make contraptions that do stuff)

Here's a new long way for Mind the Gap, under the left half of the ground backwards then over the middle circle

:doh: Can't believe I didn't think of that. Good job though.

I'm working on the most ipecac unpossible ever! Around the whole thing.... clockwise! Unfortunately, phase chain is necessary, so this won't be official. (But it will be cool :cool:) Also, this might not work on all zoom levels or all computers. Such is the nature of phase chains.

I only need a catapult strong enough to pult it over and get it in. Any super browners around here?

Seriously, what is the point of working on a solve when it abuses a glitch. I have no respect for people who do that.

Snomel, that abuses the exploding wheel glitch, which was SPECIFICALLY stated in the OP not to be allowed.
Ask yourself, "will BJ explode from seeing this solve?" before posting.
I know that BJ will not explode from this one: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=9225219 (Thik + Zhyrek)
Unless he chooses to do it. xD

I didnt think it started glitching until after those wheels' jobs were done. I figured it would be ok... Sorry D:

That's ok. Remember, glitching is only ok if it happens AFTER the contraption wins.

Maybe attaching the weight to the wheel would pull the whole thing up?

I did say it was unofficial :colbert:. If you feel so strongly on the subject, we can try to around the whole thing counter-clockwise. I have a prototype to send it all the way around and back into the :build: legitimately, but I'm stumped as to get it around the left object.

Ideas anyone?

That is a pretty impressive thrower, but yeah, It'll be hard to get it around the left object

Hard indeed, but worth trying. I think we could have a multi-purpose powered catapult towards the upper right area to (A) Launch a re-director for the goal, (B) throw the ball over the left obstacle, and (C) throwing the ball in the goal.

We'll need to find a way to squeeze a ramp in. Unfortunately, adding too many more pieces will cause it to black hole. I did modify the centrifuge to have less pieces and more power, but sadly, my browser crashed.
Maybe we can get Thik_Tip or ~Jon~ to modify the centrifuge so we have a ton more pieces.

You're not thinking outside the box. A few more parts and its a new longway....

Mtg, under the left half, then around the right rectangle:

See?

Did anyone work on the Unpossible project? (Wow, that's an ironic sentence)

Nice!
I was at one point trying to get ramps just like yours, but then one on the left, and one on the far right. I was planning on shooting the goal object up real high (on the right side of the left ball) and getting it to bounce from my left ramp to my right ramp and then back up to score, possibly also going around the right obstacle.
Unfortunately I couldn't come up with a good shooter, and therefor never came round to do the ramps in a decent way.

So do we both get credit for the new longway?
