I noticed something like this recently as I went back to experiment with the catapult mechanism in this design.

With everything removed from the left side of the build area, the catapult is no longer successful: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=12069828

Deleted all pieces on the left except for one: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=12069829 (The remaining piece is in its original position; I didn't just delete all the pieces and add a random one back.)

This contraption is identical to the one above: I created a triangle by adding two water rods to the one remaining wood rod on the left. I then deleted the wood rod, and re-added it to reform the triangle. I then deleted the two water rods. Same contraption, two results.

strange and annoying, but cool design :P

When I see weird level glitches I usually go to the level and look and see if there are any small or weird statics that look like they'd cause that glitch but I don't see any here.
The only thing that looks fishy are some small wood rods but they aren't breaking or glitching so idk I'm stumped :(

ed: did you make the contraption on the right after you made the stuff on the left?

It's fairly old, so I don't remember exactly, but I imagine I would have made most of the stuff on the right first. The two small pieces on the top left definitely came after I had perfected the catapult.

Here's the simplest state in which it still works: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=12069960
