I think we should only have 1-any. No zeros, as for some of the levels, that's too easy. 1 piece is really hard on some levels, like around the bend. I just think it'd make things a little more challenging. And here is my around the bend 1 piece:

I found this while browsing. Up The Hump in 2 pieces. I don't think it can have less pieces officially!

I don't have anything to post, but... I have tried every means possible for duplicating the 2pc clean Up The Hump solution and found it quite impossible. I have been doing this for several months. Even when the pieces are in the same build order and pixel for pixel the same place, it does not work. How is that possible? Did a game update force it to become impossible despite this one solution working?

I have no idea how it works, I think it's pixel accurate, I just kept moving it around until it worked.

It might have to be with the order of which each item was placed. I beat it with it being in a bit different location one time, but it was like a pixel different.

@ Daakotaaa: if you read my post closely, you will see that I duplicated the piece order too. In fact, for that design, there is only one possible piece order: place the CW wheel first, then attach the water rod, then tweak it for days until it works.
@ Skips: When you moved the pieces to their final position, were you working on the closest zoom level? Maybe I'm not as close in pixel location as I think I am.
Apparently, your design is the most sensitive to chaos of all the simplest solutions.

Don't bump threads this old. What's so hard to understand about that?
