MULTIPLAYER Race Track Challenge !!!

Postby elborbah on Fri Aug 08, 2008 8:01 am

Hi

I built a multiplayer race track map. There are two levels for two vehicles.

The goal is to build a vehicle that reaches the end of the track as fast as possible.
I did this one:
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=306158

As you can see, the car on the lower level is faster than the car on the upper level and wins the race.
Now I challenge you to build a car, that beats mine. To do that, delete the loser car on the upper level and build your car.
Do not edit the winning car from the previous race.
If you have built a car that is faster than mine, post it in this thread. So other players can try to beat your car by deleting the loser car to build a new one.

RULES:
- All parts must be within the car. No part can be left somewhere on the track - so no ramps, catapults or other things, that are not part of the car, are allowed.
- Do not use more than 4 wheels (no matter if they are powered or not).
- Do not edit the previously winning car. Only delete the previously losing car and built your car at that level.

Have fun!


I thought about race tracks that contain obstacles, slopes and other difficulties.That would be much more interesting, but it seems to be impossible to build such a track with two identical levels (maybe a grid could help).

I like your idea for the race map very much :) I wish I could fiddle with it but I don't have access to paid content ;)
I made a spin-off of your vehicle (from what I could see) with all 4 rotors and let them hang balanced in the front of the wheel. If you have time to spare you could replicate it on your map and test if 4 is better than 3. Only thing hard to do is the balance of the rotors in the long run.

the good start comes from the yellow powered wheel that is touching the ground. and this wheel is preventing acceleration beyond its rpm (rotations per minute). so with a powered wheel touching the ground permamently, a vehicle cant win.


I think it is hard to beat Sgt Supermans design without using more than 4 wheels. the only thing you can do, is to optimize his desing e.g. by making the wheel more round. i did the restriction of 4 wheels to prevent people from using too many parts so that there wont be only few parts left for the next player that makes it impossible for him to win.

The basic idea seems to be good: see how two vehicles are competing each other directly. but if there would be a timer option in the game, people could race against the clock and no limitations on using wheels would be necessary.

maybe someone can beat the current champion, but that what is feasibly is reached too soon. I will probably try to build a new track with obstacles, slopes and other things that has two identical levels (will be a hard job without snap on grid). that would be more interesting than the straigth track.

Nah, it ain't that hard.

It isn't on the correct course yet.

1: Place a normal :ccwheel: :woodrod: :ccwheel: car on the top floor.
2: Watch the speed difference.
3: Copy my car onto the correct course.

It should win.

faster!

Sorry Danny, you exceeded the 4 wheel limit.

Here is my submission to beat Sgt Superman's entry.
As close to a perfect circle as I could get. (ran out of pieces too)

Sorry vert6, your contraption is disqualified.
The rules state (#1) you may not leave any part of the contraption anywhere.

RULES:
- All parts must be within the car. No part can be left somewhere on the track - so no ramps, catapults or other things, that are not part of the car, are allowed.
- Do not use more than 4 wheels (no matter if they are powered or not).
- Do not edit the previously winning car. Only delete the previously losing car and built your car at that level.

I'm sure I could build something that can throw faster, but as we know the rules prohibit either your push buggy or my throwing machine. Can you build a faster bot using the rules?

It is a shame this got side tracked (no pun intended). Here is the fastest legal racer so far.

Mine's on the bottom: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=3080684

It's the same design I came up with the last time someone made a drag race thread.
