Bridge The Gap

Postby Nxdt » Wed Apr 21, 2010 6:51 pm

Aim; To cross the Canyon.

Rules;
  • No editing the scene.
  • No Geometery Controllers.
  • Slider values only.
  • Scripting is allowed but no spawning or physical attributes editing.
  • Canyon bottom cannot be touched.
  • You do not need to actually bridge the gap, almost anything is allowed unless it is blatanly cheating or highly inrealistic.
  • Your creation must be contianed within the red box at the start.
  • Entrys that leave parts behind are legal but points will be deducted.
  • Most of your vehicle should reach the other side. (see above)
  • No giving objects velocitys.
  • Must go under both black dots

Note; Any entry that I think is stupidly succeeding will be considered as rule breaking and disqualified.

Scoring;
  • ?/20 Speed-(Points given are inversly proportional to the time taken)
  • ?/20 Realisim-(Would it work in real life?)
  • ?/20 Design & Mechanics-(Is it efficient, elegant and smooth or its it slow and clunky?)
  • ?/15 % Crossed-(how much of the creation has made it to the other side?)
  • ?/15 Inginuety-(Did you use your head, or did you go for the most obvious solution?)
Total ?/100

Scene;
Heres the scene

Notice I have added a new rule after RA2lover posted his entry. Obvoisly you can't pre assign velocitys i real life so i will not score his entry. As for Davidz40 , Thats pretty neat and doesn't break any rules (new or old) so heres the score sheet.

Scoring;

* 20/20 Speed (As fast as it gets, >5sec)
* 5/20 Realisim (Would you ride a bird across a canyon.)
* 9/20 Design & Mechanics (Nice walking mech, but requires a stabiliser.)
* 15/15 % Crossed
* 5/15 Inginuety (Okay, but I think this is more of a jokey entry.)

Total 54/100

Can I recommend some more serious entrys please.

Since this has unfortuantly turned into a Jumping contest i will now make the rule that you must leave the ground at the edge of the canyon. This should encourage less five minute entrys.

Since ivanoski's entry complies with the new rule he will be scored.

Scoring;

* 14/20 Speed (Good speed, 12 sec)
* 15/20 Realisim (Good idea, it also would work though your spine may be broken on landing.)
* 12/20 Design & Mechanics (Nice suspension and timing mechanisms.)
* 13/15 % Crossed
* 11/15 Inginuety (Good idea!)

Total 65/100

it is all automatic
NOTHING is left behind, now actually crosses with bridge instead of jumping the gap, bridge then also jumps the gap itself TO LEAVE NOTHING BEHIND!

BEHOLD!!!

Okay i think both of these entrys are legal so heres the scoring.

Ivanoski
Scoring;

* 13/20 Speed (Alright speed, 16 sec to clear the other side, 12 to get the car across.)
* 16/20 Realisim (Cool car, good bridge.)
* 15/20 Design & Mechanics (Bridge mech is pretty good as is the car.)
* 15/15 % Crossed
* 12/15 Inginuety (Great idea!)

Total 71/100

bogdan_mihai58
Scoring;

* 17/20 Speed (Pretty quick!)
* 9/20 Realisim (Do jumping cars exist?)
* 10/20 Design & Mechanics (Simple but nice design. Not much effort seems to have been put in though.)
* 15/15 % Crossed
* 7/15 Inginuety (Could have thought about a better way of crossing)

Total 58/100

probably bends the rules too far, i think its funny anyway... and it moves on the tip of 1 stick with 0 friction which is like the worst possible way :lol:

EDIT: reuploaded for improved stability and should no longer break rules

I have to agree with you. It bend the rules too far. Remember, it must leave the ground near the edge of the canyon. Yours can jump across from anywhere, and never stops bouncing.
