All water rods (All finished!!!)

Postby rabid squirrel on Thu Sep 04, 2008 5:12 pm

NOTE: all of these are out of date (well, almost all) - go to the Simplest Badge Records thread for far better solves: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/for ... f=5&t=1164 Feel free to continue posting ingenious/funny designs here, but look there before trying to do simplest. Thanks :) (this was last updated from there April 09)

UPDATE: Thanks to Sumaleth's insane awesomeness, everything is done! Now we can work on lowering piece counts and making Boomerangs, Cleans, and Champions. (for more information, look at the Simplest Badge Records thread, at the top for Badge clarification)

----- updated 11/26/10 (everything except pilots) -----

Thought this was something with more of a challenge than the anti-wheel league. It's impossible to do some of them (4 balls (it looks as if 4 balls is possible), Back and Forth), but it's pretty fun. We can try to get the lowest number of pieces possible, and try to do champions as well. I'll update this when I can. (I made the easiest one to start off xD)

Lol at around the bend, I'll just take the 0 piece green champions one xD

and double lol @ down under - I can't count how many pieces it is, but surely we can make a simpler one than that xD

This is the current best solution for Down Under, which coincidentally is all water rods.

It's probably possible to make mind the gap with 2 pieces... after that it gets really sticky >.< (we can always just make them fewer pieces though)

nice job on the 2 piece down under btw :)

made me lol...

I'm really impressed by the 6/5 piece highers - I was wondering how it was possible since you couldn't rest a water rod on top of another :P

EDIT: made a 5 piece reach up champion
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1354542
made a 3 piece mission to mars! :dance:
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1354639
And a 5 piece M2M champ! I used ironmano's and tweaked it

If you wanna go for less rods and not my million rod weights.

http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1362707 4 rod champ higher
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1364202 4 rod champ on a roll
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1364100 6 rod champ mind the gap
Oh and
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1363127 I fixed my Handling one to not break every time you run it

I looked at your 4 piece on a roll champ, and thought I could make it 3 pieces, so I did :)
http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=1365701

I also managed to make a Higher with 3 pieces, using Entity's (think it was) triangle idea.
http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=1365434

Now I'm going to try to do something new instead of tweaking other people's stuff xD
Full up all water attempt:
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1367090
My idea is that the lever pushes the ball, the box thing gets it to move out and fall perfectly into the hole, springing the two rods with the pink brick across. Here's one without the box to show you how that would work:
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1367315
I dunno if it's even possible, but it's a start.

I looked at the Pilots thread, and I kind of like the idea for the ingenious not-as-simple stuff, I think I'll add in something in to include alternate methods that are ingenious/cool

Most of the levels with box goal pieces will be impossible, but I've been working on an idea for Full-Up:

http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1350978

Just can't seem to get it to work, though.
