BCS Contest 20 Results


Finally, here are the results for the 20th bridge building contest. Although several weeks have passed since the end of the contest, the results were done quick and dirty. Unfortunately, our contest host Jonathan decided to pack his job last week without delivering any utilisable outcome. Though, in my opinion it does not make sense to speculate about his reasons and I want to express that Jonathan's savvy comments are still welcome in the forums, of course.

The number of submission was comparably low this time. This is most likely due to the degree of difficulty of the levels. Both levels were hard and level B was extremely hard. Again, the missing crossbeams of the hydraulic parts caused some stability problems. Nevertheless, we have five legit entries for B and they are all absolutely fantastic. The quality of the bridges seems to rise with the severity of the level (this doesn't mean that there can't be brilliant solutions for easier levels). In addition, we have a lot of artistic bridges and it was very, very hard to pick the winners (yes, there's more than one!) this time. Therefore, I'm not that angry that it was me again, to set up these results pages. ;)

As always, any feedback on the contest is welcome. Please post your impressions in this forum thread. Each of the winners will get an eternal place in the Hall Of Fame (if he doesn't have one yet) once I get the necessary information from them. The bridge cost discussion forum is no longer password-protected until the next contest starts. For your reference, the rules/prizes page and the contest level file can still be found here.

The next contest will be on Pontifex I. and it will start on Friday, August 13th.

Last but not least let's all thank Chronic Logic for providing the prices.
