I have a feeling that I may have made them too easy, but we'll see. It may come down to ticks if several people get into it.

If three people or more tie within 100-ish ticks, I will probably make a tie-breaker. Its more fun when piece count wins it.

I made the levels easy, to get people to come in.

And by easy, i mean the levels dont take 10+ pieces, but you still have to think, and tweak. If we need a tiebreaker, im going to shoot for 8-10 pieces minimum.

If one more person ties, I will prepare a tiebreaker level.

Fun Fact --- After viewing all submissions across the board, an "optimal" piece count is still up for grabs

I have no idea why I said solves are due by may 12th on this.

I meant May 5th. I dont think we need to drag it out that far, theres still 5 days left. Ill update that now.

Nope. 3rd now.

Wow. Just wow.

I trimmed 1 piece off one of my designs this morning, but haven't resubmitted yet. Don't know if I will even bother now, or will even look at my designs to try for more improvement. If Cruiser is AT LEAST 5 pieces ahead of me (based on the current leaderboard), I have no chance of winning this now. At least I haven't sunk a ton of time into this one like most of the min piece comps I've participated in.

All I can say is shame on all you practitioners of the dark arts. :science: :twisted:
