I finally got my ring conveyor belt to work for Mission to Mars.

What I found more amusing than the actual solution, though, was the fact that if you fail, the ring eventually picks up enough speed to break down completely. :lol: (Just keep watching the following link even after the red ball fails to reach the goal.)

I can't believe that thing actually made it. I just kept watching expecting it to be thrown asunder.

Wow, I don't check other people's until I take a stab at it, but that looks almost identical to mine! I had toyed with making my nose rigid, but it never seemed to work and the lose piece actually seemed to make mine go faster in testing.

Now I want to go back and look at other solutions and see if anyone didn't make some type of mole/plow system...

Edit: I'm not saying you copied mine...you've had the results up for a while...just saying they look similar :)

After unlocking other designs, I was sad to see that most folks came up with a much simpler system (along the lines of this which took all of about 5 minutes to tweak to work, as opposed to the shenanigans I had to go through to get my comet launcher to work).

Even more fun is watching it get stuck after you beat it. Hit 'Back' and you can watch it keep going.

This isn't a very good design, but I wanted to make a putting machine.

Edit:

And a Molebot

Edit again:

Wanted to see if I could actually push the Giant Ball out of the way.
