The Beauty Elimination Comp, has ended!

Postby ken75 on Mon Dec 10, 2012 7:32 pm

The levels will be easy enough to beat for sure.
The point isn't to solve it though, it's be to solve really beautifully... obviously. To win, you'll need to make original and.. well.. Beautiful design. The way the winner is determined is by my decision.


First thing, this is my process for choosing the winner, not in any particular order
1.) It's effectiveness. What badges did it achieve (Hint* Hint* Champ is going to be ideal in these levels)
2.) It's preciseness. Does the goal piece move very smoothly to the goal (constant velocity and motion patern is best, but of course there are exceptions)
3.) it's complexity. I am a sucker for complexity, but if you can make something that fills the other ideals and is also fairly simple, fantastic!
4.) It's originality. Typical designs=fine, Never seen before designs=Great!


Second, If you think that I'm obviously being unfair or biased in my choices message me your reasons for thinking so.

Due to popular demand, I'll publish the level each round. Feel free to publish your designs, and please rate the level up... as we would all like to show off I'm sure :grin:

I may not have a bunch of time so can we make resonable deadlines?
Seeing the level of activity on here now, I'm sure others would agree

I'll give it a shot, but I'll have to figure out how to make you see the inner beauty in my designs, i.e. "That is one FINE looking water rod".

i agree with schmittd, the level is very easy to solve...the challenge scienceguy, is to come up with something
interesting...
use some of that creativity you have coming up with new shuffle ideas, and apply it to a design, amigo!
