Doesn't it have to be green...nevermind! Hehe.
Jof, you should change the rule about it having to be green only within an hour.


How long do you think it should have to be green?

My thinking is, as long as the shuffle is actively being played, an hour is more than enough time to solve it. And if it's a slow time, this keeps it from being stuck on a particularly difficult/near impossible level while waiting for someone to do the impossible. That's what kills shuffle threads...a level that is either impossible or so tedious that no one wants to do it.

And I have a couple questions:
I know this:
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=5900781
should be disqualified on the grounds of ugliness, but do chain snaps and/or chains slicing thru the landscape disqualify?

And if someone get to the solve-or-mock phase, does their solution have to be green?


Hmmm, let me ponder that one....

I say if a couple people agree that it can't be done green, they redo the level. This way, we resolve the problem, and your forum gets more posts because of all the deliberating. ;)

Agreed. Quite ridiculous.The new level would be a lot easier if that dynamic rectangle wasn't there.

Nice fix. I was stuck on the appropriate catch-ramp. That (obviously) makes a whole lot more sense than what I was trying.

The following is what I said to the post, but the reason I made the level the way it is....is because of the limit on green and when l posted the level.....it was 3 am. And now there's a solve too so.....
.............................................. .... ..... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. .. . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . .

Solves by the level creator do not result in an edit, but are for informational purposes only...and to determine who are mockers and mockees.)

So post up betcha or prepare to be mocked mercilessly


Ok Ok I deserve to be mocked, but when i was moving stuff around.... It just fit....I bet its not impossible though just not enough hours in a day to bother....

so i guess no mock after all

I tried to get a :water: to work, but gave up.

We're getting close to that point where we need to start taking pieces out. When we actually get there, I'll change the front page. Meanwhile, feel free to take one out in your edits if you feel moved.
