The Great Extender Comp... Has ended!

Postby ken75 on Sun Jul 29, 2012 11:18 pm

The Great Extender Comp


There's three rules on solving the levels.

    1. The contraption MUST be an extender of some sort (it has to reach from or near the :build: to the :goal: in a non-volatile, at least semi stable fashion)
    2. One badge will be indicated that MUST be achieved in order to move to the next round. :water: :badgeless: :sweep: :boomerang: :clean: :champ: :lightning:
    3. No glitching, black holes are fine (I know they can be unavoidable) as long as they're not used to cheat
The rounds begin/end at 10 A.M. Pacific time every 48 hours.

And the winner is...

So your definition of an extender is just that the goal piece must be connected to the contraption? So you could use something like this for example?

Maybe it's just me, but that's not what I think of when I hear 'extender'
Anyways, I'll probably participate, even though I suck at extenders :P

I said "holding" not "attatched to" and in these cases the piece(s) will be in the build area, so you probably will have to hold them in some way. I was going to say "extends to the goal while staying partially in the build area" would that be better?

And thank you for the design but I do already have an example for the first level

Count me in. I've got one good extender, and three ipecac ones that others came up with :lol: .

Ken, I would personally advise getting rid of the description in parentheses altogether. Almost all of those of us left understand what an extender is :). If for peace of mind you need to say something, I would recommend:

The contraption MUST be an extender of some sort (reaching from at or near the :build: to the :goal: (in a non-volatile/at-least-semi-stable fashion)).

Also, keep in mind that some badges (I'm noticing :boomerang: and :lightning: in particular) are rather difficult to achieve with an extender.

Please indicate me as a participant under the name {???}.

Okay, thanks! And yes I know they are difficult but I think I'll be able to use them in the right ways.

I'll try, but extenders have never been my strong point!

The level is tough yes, But it is also very basic (as far as extenders go, (Pun!)) It's just strait up

Good news, the lag is killing me. I can't get more than 10 tweaks in an entire hour. You guys have an advantage :).

Edit: No more advantage. I have a champ that doesn't use side walls :twisted: .

Wait a minute. Ken, how is this competition scored? Ticks? Pieces? General awesomeness of the extender? Or is it elimination?

Okay I'm sorry I ever signed up haha... extenders are beyond me so I'll just sit back and watch this competition unfold. Maybe I'll finally learn something about extenders :P
