Xindaris' Puzzles
« on: April 12, 2010, 09:31:40 PM »

Hey! I just recently joined, but made several puzzles before that. Thought it might be helpful to post them all in one place, along with the solutions I made for most.

*-This is one I couldn't find a solution to, hence why I made a fixed version. Some kind other members found solutions though, and posted them.

If you find a significantly different solution to any of these, please post it. Also feel free to comment on them if you liked, hated, etc.

Two solutions to "Reducing to zero copyless"(zuburyf): hibydiz is my own attempt. It's definitely more complicated, and took about 3000 ticks the one time I tested the completed version. juvebud is a modification of your solution, with an additional component that makes it run twice as fast. It took 2700 ticks the one time I ran it; and I think it is a better solution than hibydiz.

Edit: Also, welcome to the forum  Smiley
Further edit Here's a modification of juvebud that speeds it up some more: midovyg

For Write it Down (bumocig), I took the dozer and pipes in the top left to mean they should be disabled too and solved it without using dozers or up/down pipes:.dadicep. That was tough.

Awesome, thanks for taking an interest and responding. I'll be sure to update better and new solutions into the first post as I can, with credit of course, and post up any new puzzles I come up with.

@jnz: When I was posting that first post, I knew there was one of them that wasn't quite right but couldn't seem to find it..props for that.

@jf: I actually just put those in to fill the space because I didn't want to move the stack of crates over and wanted to make it look fancy...sorry for the misunderstanding. The added-challenge solution is amazing all the same.

Okay, I've managed to come up with a puzzle that I THINK is possible, but that I think I'm a little below the level of figuring out.
danedax
There are 8 distinct combinations of numbers to come to the bottom of the targets, each of which corresponds to a barrel value that comes out on the left. I simply don't think I'm up to the task of making something that uses that information to create the correct solution...
Feel free to move around the single '1' box up in the top-left corner to somewhere else using sandbox, if it's necessary. I don't really know whether it is or isn't.

Well...I'd updated the post a bit with a version that doesn't have an easily broken machine, and got rid of the unnecessary 1 that appeared at the end on the bottom of the targets. But it works for that one too.

Also, I have now modified danedax into a new version that supplies an infinite amount of 1s but disallows copiers. Again, don't know if this is possible.

for mebikeh: tifyned. This solution has a lot of room for improvement. Since I'm going to have very little time for Rubicon for the next several days, I'm just posting it as-is. jnz's rubicon application (with the nifty new fast-forward option) is definitely recommended.

Neat.

I've made the first post a table so it's easier to read through (thanks to Twee for the idea), and added a couple of new puzzles.
