Using 15 powered wheels on the first level is not considered "green," Entity..... :xd:

ARGH :argh:

I think all these levels were perfectly balanced to SCREW ME OVER :argh:

I swear I've gotten two nice, light, green designs all made up for each level, but they all fail at some key point. It seems the levels are perfectly fine tuned so that whatever solution I pick gets the goal object just millimeters away. I've done about 4 hours of tweaking PER LEVEL and I just can't get it to go.

I am so glad I don't have to play my own game :xd: :munch:

Also.. if that is 4 hours of tweaking per level, then that would be 12 hours, which means you have been playing this all night... :science:

Well, I have been scrutinizing my designs and I just cant seems to find a better way to do them, even though I know there has to be one.

Congratz Hap, this has been the best round of levels yet. I have really enjoyed them and I propose that pacifist should give you a Fantastic Contraption T-shirt for all the hard work you have done on these games.

It's almost twice as good to not complete the level at all, than to submit this. :colbert:

Could I suggest a Domino bonus idea?

A negative point bonus if none of the pieces used are connected together. This seems fairly self explanatory: no piece, wheel, or red object may be connected to one another. However, it is to your discretion if this is plausible and how many points to allocate to this bonus.

Let me know :dance:

Not a big fan. A solution like this will already be green (and often brown as well), so you're already getting a lot of minus points for these.

Just my .02.

Two down, one to go!

Except, it seems like there is some sort of friction now?
Why does this "vechicle" slow down?
