Thats not a monster truck

Does it ever make it? When I ran it, it took a break at the apex of the U, then barely got itself onto the upper platform. But by that time the pink wheels had their rods crossed, so they wouldn't turn, and the top yellow wheel wasn't getting any bite on the ceiling.

It works, just slowly and awkwardly

Yep. It makes it shortly after. It has to sort itself out a bit and then it goes.

A little more horsepower never hurt anyone though.

Sorry to bring up an old (OLD) topic. I started building a few levels and I cannot beat this one. Can you?

That level can only be seen by those that have a subscription. I haven't done it yet, but I probably should, the designers should certainly be rewarded for some very good work. I am very curious to see what any follow up might be.

One thing that is fun on the basic levels is to try and beat all the levels with a catapult. Some of them cannot be done, but most of them can.

Hi guys!

Having recently dusted off my account here, I think I'll bump this 7-year-old thread for no good reason.

I was dicking around with some VR stuff and stumbled on some info about Fantastic Contraption 2 which is coming out later for VR headsets. Do want.

So then on a whim dug up this thread to see if all the memorable FC1 designs we made back in the day still work - fortunately they do.

You can even look up your old profile & all your old machines through the "FC Resource" site now - much easier than going back through the flash game interface. http://fc.sk89q.com/index

Fun stuff.

Awesome! I have no idea what my old profile was. Hopefully I can figure it out.

You can find your old username by searching the DesignID # for any of the ones posted earlier in the thread (e.g. 428221 ) on this page - you appear to have been GTP_Duke. (Still have the GTP? :P )

Cool, thanks. And no, it wasn't a GTP, it was for GT Planet.

I don't understand you people. Contraception is not a game, not any more so than Russian Roulette.

In reply to 1988RedT2:

Invalid simile. The end result of losing at each game is the opposite of the other...
