First of 2012 Comp: Ends Jan 14th

Postby ID36 on Sat Jan 07, 2012 10:34 am

Welcome to ID36's "First of 2012" Competition.

To welcome in the new year, I decided to create 3 shiny new levels and host a competition.

ID36 Scoring
Lowest score wins and in the event of a tie, lowest tick count will decide the winner.
-No glitchy solutions allowed.
-To score, add up the penalty points then subtract the bonuses.
-A 0-piece solution scores rodless, green, wheelless and unconnected but not the clean badge.

Penalties
- Not completing a level: +25
- Each piece used: +1
- Every 50 ticks: +1

Contraption bonuses
:rodless: Rodless: -10 (no brown sticks or blue rods)
:green: Green: -8 (unpowered)
--- :unconnected: Wheelless: -2 (no wheels)
------- :brown: Brown: -4 (brown sticks only)
------- :water: Water: -6 (blue rods only)
Image Unconnected: -5 (no pieces are connected)

Achievement bonuses
:boomerang: Boomerang: -7 (after a victory, bring all the goal pieces back to the build area and keep them there)
:champ: Champion: -5 (after a victory, keep all the goal pieces in the goal)
:clean: Clean: -3 (clear all remains of your contraption from the landscape)

I realize the thread title may be a little misleading but it's meant as the first comp that I've hosted this year, just like my last comp of 2011 was The "Last of 2011" Comp. I used up all of my creative juices making these 3 well-designed levels so I hope you can forgive my sudden lack of imagination for a comp title ;)

;) But shouldn't the title be "First Comp of 2012"? Also, I do like the way you timed it :D

I'll try to enter, but don't expect much :P

I feel as if rodless should deduct more points. It deducts as many points as a wheelless solution, but rodless is much harder to do.

I got pretty decent solves on 1 and 2, but I just can't seem to come up with anything on 3 :(

You know, rodless generally also gets green (unless you use powered wheels on those square goal pieces)

True. And it also scores unconnected unless, as Zhyrek pointed out, you connect them to the goal pieces ;)
Piece count for piece count, rodless scores higher than all the other badges, and it's true that when making a level, it should reflect the scoring, but please bear in mind that higher scoring badges do not always result in a higher scoring solution ;) For example, I overlooked the water badge, which I don't think can obtained on any of the 3 levels (but Cruiser always proves me wrong :ninja: )

I've gotten the water badge on the first level, but the overall score was just horrible :P

A water solve on one of the levels is indeed possible. An extra scoring bonus for this could make an interesting difference.

I will submit my entries in pm as soon as i get passed the bubble screen...

I still have some tweaking to do.... but am definitely in.

Thanks. Always good to hear. I may extend the deadline if needs be. I'd preferably appreciate at least 5 entrants, but we'll see.

Finally got around to this comp and submitted. Can probably tweak off some points, but don't have much time. Fun levels.
