ais523's puzzles
« on: June 18, 2009, 07:53:34 PM »

Here are three sorting-based puzzles.
kycyfog
mybuguc (the same as the one before, but with more banned items)
sozuhek (still much the same, but randomized to avoid programmed solutions, and with even more banned items)
I wonder how many different sorting algorithms can be implemented in Rubicon, especially wih all those banned items?

For "Random sorter - no barrels" (sozuhek): dudupal.  I borrowed one of Rene's (IIRC) old selection sort machines.

Are you the guy from the Esolang wiki?

litigor (for the first. This would win the Inefficient Sorter of the Year Award if there was one, at 1263 ticks and using most of the available space.)
revuhet (for the third)

@immibis: yes, I am.

Here's my solution to #3: gygyxot. That one's an insertion sort.
My solution to #2 is lihazin; pretty much the same solution as #3, but uglier because of the lack of horizontal space.
As for #1, here's a bubble sort solution: muvygyg

For sozuhek: logepah

Good puzzle. I like your insertion sort.

For kycyfog: pacuhib

A new puzzle: hidypom. Yes, it is possible for all 256 combinations of crates.
My solution: imagexegybev (I earlier suggested rexogyr here but it fails if twice the left crate, plus the right crate, equals 3)

Here's another puzzle; it's a bit like an upside-down Glass Floor. byluxid
My solution: imagelofigyn

For Glass Ceiling (byluxid): gitixug

Original puzzle. The solution was simpler than I thought it would be, though
EDIT: Just looked at your solution. Yeh, that is how difficult I thought it would be...

I am still thinking about hidypom. It's very similar to another puzzle we've seen (don't remember whose), but it has an extra twist that makes it harder.

For Glass Ceiling (byluxid): nuxohuh
imageI originally tried making a solution similar to Rene's, but I failed to get both crates to move in opposite directions, so I ended up making this slower solution instead.

Another puzzle: Four of a kind. hekuged
My solution: imagekidedig.

(Incidentally, I also finished off coppro's attempt at making a true bubble sort for sozuhek: hixugab.)

There's a small bug in that; it fails if, say, 4 of the crates are 0 and the other 45 are all 1, because the 45 crates can reach the left-hand side of the screen without the help of the dozer. I suspect it won't be too hard to fix that, though, and it's the sort of arrangement that has basically no chance of coming up randomly.

Should have fixed it: tigozyp (Good thing right conveyors have priority over left conveyors)
