Got a concept for 1350 + but need to get a catcher working

1380+L tweaking it further
May the lag be with you in the dark hours of battle.

What came first? The ball, or the 'dillo?

I feel the level is a bit too random maybe, but also hard to tweak as Nishimaster said :P.

I was able to tweak it up to 1406 :) Not sure how much more I can tweak it since I've been working on it for a while (started a bit after I first posted on this thread) and went through several ideas.

At first I tried to break that metal plate that armadillo is on and couldn't figure out how the heck to break that thing, that plate must be armor plate or something lol. So I tried other methods.

IMO the catcher is actually the easiest part to do, it's getting the dillo down that is hard.

and yea it is chaotic, but that is because there are so many moving pieces and so many potential interactions (not going into the math here), that the slightest change anywhere will affect the whole thing, even the catcher.

Not sure if mine is dark because you can't really help but do the 'welding' trick when connecting those spinners to something since they are so compact and you're probably going through at least one rubber, depending on the connection point. Although I don't think I got any of the force out of the way I connected something on mine. So mine is probably light.

lol, even though you can't really compete in the N league, it's cool to see that my solution is probably on par with some of the experts around here.

I have a good catcher in, but it's very sensitive to tweaking.
