Does opening the green door lose two points?

 

Fun level. You sure about keeping this competition open for just a few days only?

 

EDIT:

 

Didn't realize that the scoring had changed at first. Might I suggest another small adjustment? Instead of having 1 point for every five seconds left on the clock for time, you could subtract 1 point for every five seconds that the submission is slower than the fastest submitted route. This is essentially the same (so if you are faster you get more points) but as soon as you feel you are within five seconds of the optimal route you don't need to find all the last moves. Compared to say having a time of 128 and suspecting that a couple more seconds might be possible, the original scoring would force you to look for those two seconds (to get that last point), while this suggested adjustment would not (as long as 133 was not submitted by someone else with the same items gathered). Well there are some complications so it's not all upside, but I think it would help differentiate this competition from the TT as not so focused on the time limit but still allowing it to be a factor.

Congratulations Josh! You have two new awards to add in your CC Zone profile!

 

M11k4, I understand that you want the Treasure Hunter to not be like a Time Trial competition. I may adjust the Time Bonus scoring after all entries have been posted.

I'll get right on this as soon as I get home.

 

Update: just submitted my entry. I've got to wonder - what's up with Chip's date being a teeth monster? Is that supposed to represent Melinda? Is she much more of a sadistic predator than we thought she was? :P

Well, it couldn't be Chip, because... well, he's not attracted to men, is he?
