AR2_A_352_016_JupiterGravity Results

Very subdued again. :(
And unfortunately I've been too distracted, preparing for ten days away in Ireland, to even think about improving my mediocre solution.
I almost forgot to post the results... sorry they are late.

Anyhoo, with just one other entrant, despite almost three weeks to enter, it's a default win for Mark_man. But a very worthy win, nevertheless.

It's a beautifully "over-the-top" creation, scoring 867. Supreme elegance, and cleverness. Grats. :D

My own "underwhelming" option only managed 828.

I never even thought of using that gravity to drive a "starting" engine, though - very nicely spotted.
And that makes it a "whole new ball game" for me - AR2 showing once again, that depending on the circumstances, the most "powerful" launcher is not obvious. No flippers, or rubber, or levers. Just a great lump squishing the dillo forwards. Marvellous to see how simple it could be.

Making the bridge strong enough to support it's own weight was challenging enough, though.
I found 300% to be "too much" in a previous challenge. So Jupiter's 1000% was scary big. I'm quite relieved it could be done, and done so... sublimely.


Good news is, plenty of wi-fi everywhere throughout my trip, so hopefully I'll find time to take on the next challenge on the laptop. I'll be lugging the ancient beast (8 years old already...) but it was so powerful in it's day, that it can still put half of the modern things on sale to shame. Performance wise, that is, at least. It's not something you'd want crushing your lap all day, though! (Hot , and heavy, and barely manages 2 hours battery life with any sort of serious graphics.)

Well done! :D

The sign of an excellent challenge, is that sort of "equal" result. I had a feeling my method was "inefficient", but tbh I was a little distracted by the looming trip to Ireland.

I haven't stopped since Monday morning, but it's been magnificent. Glad to have done it at last. And the weather is holding, too. Plenty of sun, refreshingly cool and warm, and the only heavy rain has been overnight.

So. Where's the next challenge? :?
