Triangle Inequality, backroute & wrong approach
« on: February 10, 2018, 05:54:36 am »
Hi geoo,

Forestidia found the attached backroute to Triangle Inequality.

Proxima found this almost-solution that looks like some wiggling will make it work, but it needs a conceptual difference. Merely re-timing some assignments will not fit this one in. Do we accept this dead end as part of the map, or should this be forcefully removed? It's OK if Triangle Inequality is hard. I'm merely worried that this dead-end looks too promising, will induce a lot of trial-and-error, and ultimately result in frustration.

I think Forestidia's solution should be eliminated somehow,

As for Michael's solution, I kinda wish it worked.

After some sleep, I solved the level immediately.

Yeah, now I have it solved myself as well with the massive hint of Simon.
But nevertheless I didn't get it to work this morning, so it seems to be quite precise. It seems very obscure or subtile (how you want to see it) that way.
I've attached a failing replay to demonstrate that.

A possibility for removing the backroute:
