Try not to get addicted to this.

Also, I'm quite proud of this design:

I think it probably resembles labor.

This is epic. If I had something to procrastinate I'd be so happy here. As it is I'm just using it to get my mind of the freezing chill that's descended on Sydney tonight.

I got into this a good while ago once or twice.  I made a few designs, but none were really good.

Out of the few I saved, I find this one the most silly, but it does take a while..

Westein, I think you accidentally copied over Pam's link instead of yours.  Otherwise you both made eerily similar designs.

Nice Westein.  That's what most of mine end up being.  I try these cool complicated machines, but a couple wheels with some treads usually end up doing the job better.

Nice.  I bet a slightly more pointy nose might have dug through slightly faster.

The treads on this tank are a little loose, but it made it.

More triangles.  That'll help.

I have 8 things on my list of things to do today but I will not do them until I have learnt to make tanks and dinos and spiders and things you guys haven't even thought of.  I will not settle for mediocrity.  I hate you all and it's your fault my work isn't being done.  I also hate the music on this stupid, stupid game. I will talk about my hair whenever I want to.

Yeah it's hard to get it to move like a spider.  So far I've just settled for this: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=7756720

But I think if I did something else with the wheels it could have a cool spider walk, with legs moving up and down.  I have to stop now, though, because it appears I'm slowing down the network at work.

Yeah, I had a similar solution to the last one, though yours is much more refined than mine.  I just get mine to work but they're always so ugly.

I kept restarting that second, one trying to figure out what the heck that silly little piece at the beginning was for.  After three restarts I figured out to let it go.  Sometimes I'm a little slow.

I don't know. I thought the game must use a fair bit of bandwidth because whenever I'm on, people start bitching that the network is slow.

I love that level.

That's a great solution.  I think the only difference I make is that I use some water rods to attach it to one of the wheels because I' don't trust that I'll aim it right.
