  1. This or That

    Driver LP, (reporting scores or faking scores) or (looking in editor or playing without a map)
  2. Veggie Tales!

    The first water buffalo song has also been my favorite since I heard it for the first time. There are of course other classics, but that's the one I privately laugh at every now and then :-)
  3. Bridge Master

    I only played through the longer version of this level, and it did feel too long because once I could get past the first half, the rest was very simple. This was both because there were longer straights and the technique needed was familiar by then. I like the idea, but feel it would be better if the level could be solved without such strict timing, and only the best possible route needed to be so accurate. Not sure how to exactly do this, but have experimented a bit with a level of my own :-) -Miika
  4. MS or LYNX?

    That's such an unfair question! Both have their merits, and I'd like to say just MS, but I find myself playing both, so both it is.
  5. Corrupt-a-wish

    Granted, but then you won't ever solve YCTaOFNT! I wish more people would start plaing CC and join the online community.
  6. This or That

    Bloblake. Flicking or slapping?
  7. Corrupt-a-wish

    Granted, but then you'd have to go to Sweden to accept it. I wish I had time to create some awesome levels and release them!
  8. How Does the "Reputation Points" System Work?

    Is it possible to just allow positive votes, like a thumbs up but no thumbs down?
  9. Site feedback

    Love the site so far! Great job!
  10. The CC Zone award suggestions thread

    A few ideas: -some award that encourages members to vote other's posts up/down -meeting some other member in person (someone you didn't already know) -uploading some amount of Let's Play videos (possibly on Youtube) -more individual difficult levels that people have played through -solving CC1 without any help or maps (and possibly CCLP 2&3) -a hundred or more bolds on CC1/CCLP2/CCLP3 -some Lynx related award (like separate ones for playing through all of CC1 and CCLP3, and the possible ones on CCLP2) -never having played any CC1 levels -designing a level that's included in CCLPn -a hundred blog posts in a CC related blog -starting a thread with over a hundred replies -editing the wiki a hundred or more times -playing through all of CC1 in one day (I bet nobody will ever do that with CCLP3 ! ) -Miika
  11. This or That

    Jaywalker. Randomness or Boosting?
  12. When do you use the mouse?

    Sorry about editing in an extra choice after JB or Ben already voted! Man you were fast! (I added the third one, so his choice was originally the fourth one.) edit: I guess it's fixed now, so don't mind this post.
  13. Favorite CCLP2 Secret Level

    My favorite is Cloner's Maze. It's one of the best levels ever! The puzzles are very satisfying to work out. There are a couple more difficult chips, but even these can be gotten without precise timing, like the hint says :-) After this comes Run-A-Muck. The first part of the level is very well designed. It's not all that complex, yet it will most likely kill you plenty of times before you can move on. The teeth do make the level quite difficult in Lynx, and I also found it hard to get the last chip from the pink balls in MS, but overall I enjoy the level. -Miika
  14. Are you a competitive player?

    I enjoy optimizing levels. I see it more as playing against a level rather than other people, though. But it's great to have the scoreboards to know what's possible. And of course it's nice to beat someone else's score when possible! It's also important to me to complete a set in full, but just solving all the levels. Optimizing everything would usually just take too much time! But for many levels it is very satisfying to solve the "puzzle within a puzzle" that is finding how to complete all the required tasks most efficiently. It takes a while to learn this well, but the avis for cc1 and cclp3 really should help anyone who is interested in trying for themselves. I worked on many levels myself and then looked at how it should be done :-) I encourage others to try and optimize a few levels, even if later you still like playing mostly casually :-) -Miika
  15. To release at least one level. To make a few avis. To write my CCLP3 review. To spend an appropriate amount of time on CC. To beat a record by pieguy in CCLP3. -Miika
  16. Favourite Monster?

    Gliders are cool, but teeth lend themselves to more different types of tasks. For some reason I like bugs more than paramecium. The random ones are the least favorite, though walkers aren't bad in lynx. But aren't monsters supposed to be bad, so doesn't that make blobs the best ones?

    CC1 is great, but it was created a long time ago for a very different enivironment than the custom made sets. Many of the long levels just wouldn't be voted into a set these days, but back then they gave the game a longer life span so I can't hold it against the set. As that's the only negative thing I can think of, I have to give the set 5/5 stars. JB had some good points too on the positive side. CCLP2 is great, since it brought me to the community, though it took a few years. It was the first custom set I played, so I found the invalid tiles as a new twist and not too as annoying as I might think of them now. There are some memorable levels, but some forgettable ones as well. I'll give it 3/5 for now, which is lower than I felt when first playing it, but more accurate when comparing to other sets. CCLP3 gets 4/5 stars even though it is my favorite! I think the set is slightly too hard, but understand how this is the result of the long incubation period. Still I like it the most, as I was around when it came out! The individual levels are all really great, too! Hopefully we can create a very exciting CCLP1 for newer players who gradually then graduate to CCLP3 :-) -Miika
  18. Colour of board

    Anything goes as long as it's not all of the above suggestions in one.
  19. How old are you?

    The poll could've used more options for us older folk :-) And I didn't even think I was that old! Clever of you to not ask for birth year, as this way you can repost the same topic each year! Well, anyway, I'm thirty and married with two kids. -Miika
