New badge: chain

Postby osiris2 on Thu Apr 30, 2009 1:30 am

This is a new badge: 'chain'. It means everything must be connected and no more than 2 rods can meet at one point. You can freely place wheels at joints. It can be a closed chain like this: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=7586469 , or a non-closed chain like this: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=7586479 . Goalpieces that start outside the build area don't have be conected.

When you say "everything" must be connected, I am assuming you mean the contraption AND the goal piece? If so, this will be impossible for the levels where the goal piece(s) starts outside the build area like 'Four Balls' and 'Back & Forth'.

You are right! If they start outside, they don't have to be connected

Only on a roll and up the hump count, for the rest, more than 2 rods meat at the same point.

Sigh...
Almost all of the "new" records that could come with chain are already done.
For example, the reach up one piece solution is already a chain.
Still, when combined with other badges it has some value.

Reach up with one piece, just an example, I can't remember who first did it a long time ago.

Except the UnConnected Water for On a Roll, Full-up and the unbeatable Back and Forth, all water solutions found so far are chain.

My bad. I thought you just needed a logon but not necessarily the :10bux: .
