Under rating threshold (show) Well, I guess never mind about that solution I posted. When I loaded the saved code, it no longer has two manipulators with the pivot on the same spot. I guess somehow I just got it into a bogus position while fiddling.

Under rating threshold (show) My solution to the 2nd puzzle. It's not efficient in terms of components, but good in terms of time, and fun to watch. It was the best way to work around there not being a way to position the joiner so that it was equidistant from the generators. For aesthetic reasons I really wish I could fit 2 more manipulators on that one spot so they would continuously rotate instead of going back and forth. b,6,9;m,6,12,0,3,clor;m,4,9,90,2,clor;m,6,6,90,1,odcu;m,7,6,90,2,crol;m,7,6,180,2,crol;

Under rating threshold (show) hey! I've noticed on the save format, that the manipulators can be defaulted to rotation and length - and because I like my contraptions, I use the [save]-[fiddle-text]-[load] combo to change the defaults. I know the game has been out for a while, but is it possible to make some sort of UI for them? sincerely, a fan of the game

Under rating threshold (show) THIS is what I think of when I imagine a great puzzle game. You are given components and a goal, but no clear way to solve it. So often level design shows only one choice that the maker thought up, but this can have so many solutions. And finding a way that works is satisfying. Only complaint is the amount of trial and error, but that is inherit in games like this. Simply an amazing game.

Under rating threshold (show) @minecraftgenuis: It's compact, but, well, not very fast. If you divide work more evenly between manipulators you can have the same simplicity yet half the time needed to assembly every molecule.

Under rating threshold (show) One of the greatest puzzle games I've had the pleasure of playing. The basic idea is simple yet it makes for a such complex and challenging game.....BIG PROPS TO YOU DEV The only down side is the inability to save your progress through the levels. Its really inconvenient to have to save your code from each level (and then input each one) if you want to come back later and start from where you finished..... and of coarse I learnt that the hard way :/
