So... this is essentially a "make-an-engine-and-get-away-with-it-not-being-recognized" contest. Please clarify the definition of "engine" or the contest is, strictly speaking, entirely impossible—since anything that can make something move could, by definition, be an engine.

Here's my entry. It's not breaking any rules, so if you don't like it then change the rules.

I would define scripting as using objcollide and laserhit, but it does seem cheep. But the whole contest seems cheep.

The contest seems cheap because it is cheap. It's basically saying, "do something that is by definition impossible in real life, and I'm going to ban most of the ways you can cheat in Algodoo, and then we get to play a game of whack-a-mole with the remaining possibilities." ddthj, if you would at least upload a sample scene that a) makes it, I dunno, 10% of the way in less than 20 seconds (not like pivottribal's erratic squished-ball entry), and b) is genuinely clever rather than cheap and just skirting the rules, then maybe this can be considered an actual contest. Otherwise...the thing is, efficiency contests have been done before, so the only thing this contest has going for it is the "unpowered" idea—but unless you can find a way to define that really well, it's just whack-a-mole.

@ddthj
that example breaks the rules because it uses an engine
and changing the materialVelocity isn't scripting

btw, here's my entry (i hope it doesn't break any rules):
