Re: Manufactoria - Make Turing Machines with Conveyor Belts

Your brute force method fails for certain inputs that the game doesn't give. For example 20B 20R or something similar, I'm pretty sure you could move all of those branches into a single loop and get something that works with a few modifications.

Re: Manufactoria - Make Turing Machines with Conveyor Belts

Just did Robo-Children with an incredibly slow algorithm, about 8 minutes on the random input. It's because I remove only 1 red and 1 blue on each iteration of the loop. The price of simplicity is inefficiency it seems.

Re: Manufactoria - Make Turing Machines with Conveyor Belts

Just finished Rocket-planes. I built it the wrong way round at first so that it shifted blues to the back, so finding out that space flips the branches was really useful. My solution is seriously inefficient though, over 3 minutes on one input (although i haven't trimmed out any unnecessary componen...

Re: Manufactoria - Make Turing Machines with Conveyor Belts

Robo-Children requires the same number of reds and blues in any order, so yes. It seems that if you can find a small enough sort (in terms of space on the board) then you can find out if there are the same number of reds and blues by combining it with the Android solution, shame there isn't a way to...

Re: Manufactoria - Make Turing Machines with Conveyor Belts

I basically just joined (after a long time lurking) to say how awesome this game is. I just finished Androids and have already wasted a few hours on this game. It seems a lot of the taking the dots as binary levels are pretty simple if you're already familiar with binary. I'm still stuck on the Rock...
