**Contests / Re: Level solving contest #3 (Results)**

Time is up. 5 players participated (seems like even with the freer engine choice participation is waning), and these are the results!

Congratulations to Crane, our winner! In his submission PM he counted 13 skills, but checking the replay it turns out even one fewer skills was used!

For comparison, I tried to reproduce his solution in Lix. Due to more lenient steel detection in NeoLemmix, one extra skill has to be used in Lix to make

the solution work, and instead of double miner cancelling a miner is turned with a blocker, which should result in one fewer lix saved. But maybe due to

some timing difference the Lix solution I got saves 2 more, so 51 lix (and uses 13 skills).

See attached for everyone's solutions, as well as the Lix version of Crane's solution.

Crane now has the chance to host the next contest, or pass on the privilege to Simon and Forestidia.

Player | Engine | Number skills/saved |

Crane | NeoLemmix | 12 skills, 49 saved |

Simon/Forestidia | Lix | 14 skills, 47 saved |

Minim | Lix | 15 skills, 48 saved |

Ramon | Lix | 21 skills, 49 saved |

SQron188 | NeoLemmix | 25 skills, 52 saved |

SQron188 | Lix | 26 skills, 53 saved |
