Meh! I had a "mind the gap" solution that
* was gravity-powered (of course in this thread),
* had the ball unattached,
* put it at rest in the pink zone,
* and (for extra sport) left it alone there.

It broke since yesterday. Must have been an update. And since the last point took an insane amount of tweaking (and, considering how much it fails in the newest version, how difficult it would be to patch it up), I won't be updating it...

Anyway, here is the idea of the design.

My first shots at going green.

Handling, nice and simple:

Mind the Gap. I think I passed all the challenges that Circonflexe mentioned:
- no powered balls
- ball stops inside the goal (and stays there)
- ball isnt attached to anything
(the nose and tail I put on to meet the challenges... but they still look good I reckon, rocket car, with tank tracks!)

And my first green one, pretty boring, but took me ages for the first time:

Removed the top bar of the basket and stopped the ball moving, hope you don't mind.

If you watch it, it slowly jerks out of the goal area.

What's "champion"?

If it's speed, then this New05 has to be in the running.

I tryed to throw a ball as height as possible, and here is my solution in my own level:

Quite a few of the earlier designs in this thread have been broken by the newer version of the game. e.g Four Balls, Tube.... :(

I didn't think Four Balls, Back and Forth, or Tube were possible, but people came up with some great ideas, so I'm sure somebody will be able to do something.



i was able to get four balls and tube to work
