    I can't say much because that'll just spoilt the whole game. Suffice to say, every time you click on a piece you get some info on what it is and what it does.

    I was trying to get it to move by using the mouse. It's the arrow keys. Now I may be able to beat you.

    This is pretty addictive. Though I do not see how you got 100% while I got 99% when our scores are the same.:confused:

    Everything counts, not just time and cocunuts. Weight, structure and wheels do count. Too many and you score will lower.

    91% is my best so far. It's hilarious trying to work out how to get a cart together. My first efforts fell apart before I even released the coconuts :D

    Little background info. My Engr Mechanics teacher gave us this site. She told us that whoever gets 100% in class gets extra +12pts in the final. Pretty good motivation if you ask me.

    My design was original, I didn't look at the example cart at all... hey 94% is still an A.

    The particle game is a lesson in futility...almost. After an hour, I finally tweaked a system that barely 99% efficient. Work Time Fun.:p

    95% was my highest, I don't know how you guys are getting to the finish line so quick, it takes me 20 seconds at least. i have to wait a second for the coconuts to fall.

    I forgot to mention, the timer is independent of responsiveness of the application. If your computer is slow, you won't make it to 100% efficiency. Why? Because the Java app runs independent of the clock. So while your CPU is trying to compute the app the timer is ticking away, taking away precious time.

    Sorry I didn't mention that before, it just came to my attention from a friend of mine.
