Standing Challenges and Features!

Postby weasel on Fri Jul 25, 2008 7:11 am

As there seems to be a lot of Challenge activity, I thought I'd put them all into one convenient location.

OFFICIALLY SANCTIONED CHALLENGES
  • Gravity Games - The Green Challenge. See if you can make solutions that do not use powered wheels! Thought up by Silver.
  • Simplest Solutions - How few pieces can you complete levels in? Thought up by Silver.
  • Stop! In the Name Of Love - Make a 'champion' device that keeps the victory piece in the goal!
  • Expand-a-Level - Take a level, beat it, and edit it to make it harder for the next person! Thought up by OfficiallyHaphazard.
  • Soccer Arena - Try to get the ball in the goal - challenge your contraptions against the current victor! Designed by AlexT.
  • Arena Challenge #1 - Try to get the ball from atop a pedastal into your own goal and defeat the current victor! This level made by me (weasel).
  • Sumo Arena (lightweight edition) - Try to push opposing contraptions out of the arena and defeat the current victor! This glitchy level made by me (weasel).

USER CHALLENGES
  • Fastest Contraptions - See how quickly you can defeat each level! Thanks to Imrahil for this one.
  • Anti-Wheel League - Can you defeat the levels with the use of no wheels at all? Augnob wants to know!
  • Multi-Purpose Contraptions - Have a solid design that can traverse several levels with only minor adjustments? Challenge issued by Holmstrom.
  • Boomerang Challenge - Send the red ball to the goal and return it to the starting area!

FEATURED USER-MADE LEVELS

Feel free to PM me or respond to this thread if you have more to add.

Another challenge: Get it in the goal and leave it there

Another: get it to the goal without connecting it directly to your contraption (like Back and Forth)

Heh - that's exactly what I've been doing for a while now. :)

I just put a thread for it here: http://fantasticcontraption.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=132.

I'm a newb to the game. Just finished all the levels. I saved the Umpossible solution, but can't figure out how to load it. Do I need the full version?

weasel, I don't know if you want to put this some where, but I think a guide to the terminology of the forum might be helpful. A lot of them correspond to the threads above. (Also, should Pro-wheel league and The Olympics be added?)

Solution: a device which completes the level and wins.
Champion: a solution that keeps the goal piece in the goal forever.
Boomerang: a solution that brings the goal piece back to the building area after winning.
Clean: a solution that removes all traces of the contraption after completing the level.
Green: a solution which uses only rods, sticks and un-powered wheels.
Brown or Anti-wheel: a solution that uses only rods and sticks.
Pro-wheel: a solution that is bound by these rules.

So, in terms of combos, here are the possible ones:

Everything can be combined with Solution and Simple, obviously...

Single categories: Solution, Green, Prowheel, Champion, Boomerang, Clean
Green Champion, Green Boomerang, Green Clean
Green Brown, Green Brown Champion, Green Brown Boomerang, Green Brown Clean
Green Prowheel, Green Prowheel Champion, Green Prowheel Boomerang, Green Prowheel Clean
Prowheel Champion, Prowheel Boomerang, Prowheel Clean

(NB Browns are always Green)

So, there are 20 categories. Obviously, a Green Brown Champion also fills in the relevant single categories so there is some overlap, but can we complete all (20+7)*20 = 540 levels?

Also, perhaps you could have a "Boomerang Champion" as a new challenge: one that will keep going back and forth between the start and end zones forever!

What ho? Why has this been detached, to sink slowly to the depths of the forum? Is it not convenient to have a readily-available list of challenges (though granted that it could use an update)?
