I'm liking the other solutions to SISOGEM.  jf's for the nice way of splitting the stream of 8s and Lazyone's for the pure efficiency.  Smiley  An interesting puzzle.

Nice solutions everyone.  I'm glad you are enjoying my puzzles.   Grin  Here's a couple more decryption puzzles.  Number 4 is fairly difficult unless you know something about modular arithmetic.  I have one more idea for making these harder, but it'll take me a while to get it built (and make sure it's solvable Wink).

Decryption 3: MOZEXAD
Decryption 4: CUDUZUC

My solution for Decryption 4 (CUDUZUC): pufuxil.  No dozers again.

Nice.  I don't think solving this next one without dozers will be so easy though.  LYBABUV

After this though, I don't know how to make it more difficult.  Just about anything else would be more of the same.  Oh well, I might think of something eventually.

Here's a new one I made: ZUNACIG.  (Although, if I was trying to keep these in order of difficulty, this would probably be 8 or 9.)  I haven't got around to solving it yet, but I did the math and it should be solvable (if there's enough room).

Edit: Ok.  I managed to solve it.  Has anyone else solved this or number 5?

When I read that jnz had solved CUDUZUC without dozers, the gauntlet was thrown (by me, at myself). I could not open the solution, and I had to return later, when I had enough time to survive through another excellent puzzle from MagiMaster. Only, when I returned, there was already LYBABUV waiting. Ok, so now what choice did I have, after all? My solution to LYBABUV, Decryption 5: sydugab, without dozers. A tough, tough puzzle. I plan on working through the earlier decryption puzzles as well. Nice job MagiMaster -- these are really tough.

 Shocked  Wow.  That's impressive.  I didn't think there'd be room for a dozerless solution (although it looks smaller than mine now Smiley).

Edit: Here's a decryption puzzle by Lazyone: LEMYVUB and my solution to it HEDYRAF.  Oh yeah, in the original level, one of the dozers is a turn too early.  It cuts off one of the copies of the solution crates.  I moved it up one square for my solution.

Edit (again): Here's a new Catch puzzle as well.  PIHINOM

Solution for Catch 2 (PIHINOM): toxifos.  I'd almost convinced myself that a dozerless solution was impossible.  Grin

 Grin  Perhaps I'll try and make a (non-trivial) level that requires bulldozers to solve.  (How'd that work though...  Huh)

Lazyone's Decypher LEMYVUB is a nice try, but it's not solvable.

In fact, the last crate on the right is not copied down, but the one before is copied 2 times...
