AR2 A 320 Squeeze Results

Postby bythelee » Mon Jun 16, 2014 9:23 pm

Another subdued challenge. :(

And all submitted entries went over the top, which was both surprising and ...disappointing.
I'm thinking the portal position made it too difficult to squeeze through - it was expensive building something to get the dillo from the hole that far to the side.

I had three squeeze POCs above 1700 - the best was a pulley, shockingly enough, scoring 1754.

But nothing could match the awesome rob-launcher of the winner.

1st, scoring a whopping 1824, was Mark_man. Congratulations!
2nd, scoring 1690, was Arunion. A deft double touch with a plate to steer the dillo carefully over the top didn't turn the uneconomic elastic into a winner, unfortunately.

I have a sneaking suspicion that a modest rob-launcher built to operate horizontally towards the portal, yanking a sling, could power the dillo with enough momentum to squeeze through the first pinch point (using a ramp, or maybe a bar-cloth "spring"). Escaping the second pinch was quite trivial, with gravity helping. I reckon it would be far cheaper than any of the POCs, but damned if I could build it.....

PS - the "alt" POCs show the way the challenge was originally going to look.

But I realised that the extended "hood" of the upper plates made it just too impossible and expensive to consider squeezing through.
The lever from below was still viable, but it prohibited the pendulum punters.

Seems my amendment didn't convince anyone otherwise, though. :lol:
