I'd like to show you all my progress on going around tube and up the middle... but... it is HARD, so far I've got it around and almost into the goal box, any ideas? http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=8130126 YIKES!

1 day later

Okay so I'm getting a little closer, i got everything planned out but I can't get the ball into the basket and I can't time the cart very well... here's my progress anyway
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=8148782

Like five minutes after posting the above

I got it in the basket on like the 1500th tick or something like that, not as miraculous as I thought it would be though... http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=8148880

Don't know if this has been done before but trying to go over small circle then under second platform in Mind the Gap.

So far: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=8165325

Any ideas to get it around the second platform?

P.S This is my first long way

super congrats on that. Thats a load of progress when i had given up.
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=8175938
anyways i altered the catching mechanism to make it more reliable now it should be easy to make the vehicle strong enough to carry it up
without losing the catch.
what needs to be done next is extend to length of the chain and make the vehicle stronger so it catches it on its way up.
heres more progress:

this time i have the power but it need to wait a bit longer to go up

ya, the problem with making the chain longer is that when the cart reaches the top the basket and ball will still be dangling below, my plan is to make the cart waaay stronger and force it down with weight or something in the beginning then have it slowly bring itself back up- I just don't know how to make the cart more powerful?
The good thing is we still have like 20 pieces left for whatever

more progress...
In this one im using a weight that will pull the vehicle down to catch the ball then fall off and alow the ball and vehicle to go back up.
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=8178315
also reason i added ramp is it seemed that the chain was too long to get it to the goal so a bit of extra altitude could help...not sure if this add-on is necessary

on this one vehicle is still strong enough to go back up and weight is strong enough to pull down but weight wont fall off the right way...

edit: lol i just noticed we were thinking the same thing lol ^

Finally, it wins! Oh this is great, Thanks Gandalf and Chris let's celebrate! :toot: :grin: :worship: :dance: :aaa: :aaaaa:

yeah, that's nice but we still have to go over the left side and up the middle which shouldn't be too hard since we've already done it, here's my progress
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=8183265 I have to say, pretty good after only 15 minutes!

I don't think he does anymore, I think a mod has to update the page.

This definitely deserves an update. I shall once more use my mage powers to resurrect the longway thread. And this time...it's something worthy.
