    The challenge is to make a Goldberg to make a cup of tea.
    The more complex the better!

    You should start with this water dispenser

    and do the rest (you make the teabags, milk, sugar etc... then make a needlessly complex machine to add them together and take them out of their containers)
    The milk and sugar is optional and the style of teabag or tea leaves is to.

    I would have a try as well but I haven't got much time at the time of writing this so maybe later.

    I'm not much of a goldberg person - but I'll bump in hoping that someone is making something to see :D

    I may try again later and make sure I save often.

    It seems this is not a rare case.

    Do you have any clues on what situation the editor is prone to crash?
    I ever encountered the crashes when a very large level is pasted in the text box of the World Loading Dialog.-----------------

    It my have been because my computer isn't very powerful (It is an old e-mac or something like that)
    for me on this computer(I do have others) my browser crashing is something that happens more often than usual.
    I think it is because of my old computer and not the editor.
    I have noticed a lot of bugs that only happen on this old computer and as far as I know the bugs are not on a more up to date one.
    The computer I am using is very out of date(I am surprised the editor works as most other things don't) on some websites things don't work like on one forum I cant post anything and on another the post reply button downloads something instead of posting.... so I dont think it is a fault of the editor, probably just my browser.
    I could use a different, better one but that is often in use by other members of my family so that is why I use this old one.

    Edit 2:
    I am making progress but it will be slow as I have other things to do as well.
    also I have had no more crashes so far :)
    I will try and make one. By the way, how do you change the colour.

    Here is my design.

    It does fail at the start, need blues stuck on it and coloured

    Edit 2:
    Just more sugar and teabag's infected balls are movables. nothing else

    You change the colour by pressing the spanner then appearance then uncheck 'is CI shape' then change the colour using the fill colour thing.
    Thanks! And I just had a thought... I didn't enable MY source code so I cant continue on

    I've did it with colours!

    This wasent a rube goldberg.
    It was an click to add in-----------------
    Is this really what Goldbergs have become? I guess I will have to work on a <i>true</i> Goldberg at some point.-----------------

    I will be going for two weeks starting tomorrow( saterday) so my progress on my attempt will be delayed a while.
    the first week will be a camp, the second a sailing holiday.

    I have made some progress but I have a lot still left to do so after the two weeks there will still be some time before I can post my attempt.

    Edited the water dispenser a bit and still under construction (!) (60fps)

    As you can see, CI looks great and smooth in 60fps!-----------------
