Not just the wiki, see right next to the welcome thread, there is a thing that says "Complete list of threads" click on that then scroll down the page a bit and you'll see a bunch of guides, you can learn to build extenders, catapults,terrain vehicles, and more!


(Also, just always be looking through other players designs, that how I got a good portion of my skill)

I played and paid a long time ago when there were only a couple pages of normal levels. I recently discovered that there are 4 pages now and the user content has gotten MUCH better. I can't wait to play some of the ones suggested in threads.

I feel like this is my best so far... I was pretty proud of it :)

Nice! another invention! Rob you're pretty smart at that. You're probably first to invent that. I'll try using that sometime.

I guess its time for me to join the forum.

I've been playing FC for a few months now. I beat all the free levels a few times, then decided to buy a membership. This game is so addicting that I can't stop playing.

This is really a great game. I hope to find some new challenging levels here on the forum.

Thanks for all the great levels all of you creators. I have only attempted to create 2 levels myself, and both were fairly easy.

Hopefully I can follow some guides and start creating my own levels.

I look forwared to contributing what I can to the forum as well.

Hey everyone, pretty much brand new to the game, and it is basically the game I've always dreamed of. I literally can't stop playing. I've beaten almost all the free levls (stupid tube...) with no help, and unfortunately I made the mistake of looking at a couple of solutios to other levels before I beat it (I learned so much by looking at like 2 different designs I had to stop because I want to beat it as uninfluenced as possible). Anyway, my point is, that I'm not quite ready to start looking around the forums for knoweledge, but I did want to introduce myself, and ask 2 questions for posts I want to make.

1) Don't know if you guys do this already or not, but I thought it would be cool to make a post chronicling the development of my contraptions over the first few days while I beat the game. I just looked back through most of my designs and its quite a trip. I think it would be cool for us to be able to see each other's progression in the early stages (if people even keep their first designs...), where should I post something like that?

2) I created a simple machine that I was abe to beat the first 12 levels with, but i forsee the rest being an extreme challenge, so I thought it ight be fun to share brain power and see if we can beat every level using the simple rules. I can explain better when I make a dedicated post, but where would I post that?


Anyway, this post is a bit long, so I'll get back to beaing tube now so I can join the fun!

BTW, a couple of my favorite designs I've made thus far:
http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=10092508v (took a long time to perfect lol)
http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=10104430 (this one too...)

Welcome to the forums!

Great designs I might add. A few things in there I would never have thought of.

Edit: Sorry, I didn't read through your whole post. :roll: Answers for your questions are actually quite simple.
Answer for both of your questions: Why not make your own topic? Near the top of the Levels and Game chat section, (or any other section you feel your topic would fit best into,) is a New Topic button. And guess what it does, yup you guessed it. (If you didn't guess it, it allows you to make your own personnalized topic ;) )

One last note; Don't post anything you know you shouldn't, results may be banishment from the forums, (but i'm not saying you would.)
