    @MekaSage There are a couple simple tricks in that version of the level, but there's something else you need to do first before getting to that point.

    Ohhh! Got it.
    I had seen that mechanism down there but assumed it was part of the machine that moves B.

    Nice update!

    Nivel muy dificil lkegue hasta la parte donde se cae una viga de bloques, entonces R se queda parado junto a la Viga. Pero sigo intentando. Lindo nivel. La construccion y el diseño muy seguro muy estable. Geacoas @cimarronline por compartir estas joyas

    I saw an impressive meko-sculpture last week, Dragon by @MekoMole, in the level art thread. He has made many grand, surprising, transforming figures in his levels. This one didn't have gameplay, and he invited others to add some, so I gave it a try. I think the result is fun. It's quite simple, but unusual and a little random. The main attraction of the level, though, is still the sculpture.

    The dragon lives in the ruins of a castle, guarding its treasure...

    Thank you very much @cimarronline for accepting the challenge. I am most impressed and pleased with the result, a solution which wouldn't have occurred to me. However the gameplay is your authorship and I think you should credit yourself as such by amending the card.
    Best wishes for the festive season, stay safe and well.

    Another great level by @Fendi the other day, Zibal, on his youtube channel. Fun, surprising moves, with an unexpected ending. And beautiful architecture, of course. A sunken zapper kept getting me by accident, so I made a little tweak, then had a couple other ideas I wanted to try.

    Seeing @huijiuggbf in the forum again got me looking back at some of his older levels, including one of my favorites, Gear City 2. Beautiful, with great pendulums, put to fun use. I made a few tweaks to the pendulum mechanism to avoid some occasional sticking, then had an idea to add another little gear. In this case, it turned out that a free draggable worked better than a motor to enable the pendulums to move freely.

    Last week I enjoyed another great level by @Fendi, Slips Trips. He is known for surprising R moves, but this time he outdid himself. I really didn't know what L would do next. The exciting finale inspired a little idea to add to the ending, but mekostudio can't work with L bots (which is one reason I don't like them). So I completely rebuilt a mirror image of the level, with R instead of L. Worked on the reliability of R's gymnastics. And tried a slightly different ending.

    At first I thought why R didn't fall right into win. Turns out you added an interesting touch at the end.

    Thank you, this is as fun as Fendi's level.

    And now I realize there is no star on win.

    Wow! I had tried @Fendi's original and couldn't solve it at the time. I just solved both versions, and both are great.

    Another good one this week by my favorite author @Fendi, called Halimun. Beautiful, as always, with a creative, surprising ending. The comments inspired me to try something with balls instead of the stars, and I worked a little on reliability.

    This is an edited version of @richardfu's Hellhound, offered as a humble tribute to the courage and resourcefulness of the people of Ukraine. Our friend @Denis Nazin lives in Kharkiv which is currently under attack, including civilian areas.

    More than 2.5 million Ukrainians have evacuated from the country in the past two weeks. Many more are trying to find a way out of cities that have been surrounded and are being bombed and shelled.

    Yesterday Denis wrote:

    "I was born and lived in Kharkov all my life. My parents arrived in Kharkov to learn and stayed here to live. They arrived in Kharkov when there were no borders, there were no Ukraine and Russia and another 15 separate countries. Was the USSR. It was all one country.

    "The fact is that a fratricide is happening. It is very, very sad."​

    Today Denis wrote:

    "I am very pleased to hear your philosophy. Because I agree with you. Anger, rage, aggression, pride, envy, greed and other sins are a virus. They spread and are transmitted from person to person and from generation to generation like a terrible virus. We must fight for our souls. We must not allow this virus into our souls. This is our biggest battle. Our greatest enemies are not outside, our greatest enemies are within us. On this you are absolutely right! Only kindness will save our world!

    "Nature (God) never responds to us with malice. When a bomb hits the ground, many bombs don't grow on the ground. In place of the bomb crater, spring flowers grow. We must take an example from nature! And if we spread aggression and anger in response, we will destroy our planet. Only love and kindness will save the world."​

    If you pray, please pray for Denis and his family. If you send a message to Denis, please translate it to Russian, since he can't easily access the translator.

    I really enjoyed Minda last week, by @Fendi. Fun for B, with some more of Fendi's wonderful R magic. The surprising final move got me thinking, so I tried adding a little something new at the end (it's a long level, so if you want to just play the end, use this card).

    I've enjoyed many levels by @P_simorf, including his recent Fighting Logs. More of his great budgeable artistry, and puzzling convoluted paths. I got interested in seeing if I could make the mechanisms move easier and more reliably (using rounded blocks wherever the edges could get caught). Also changed the ending a bit, though this might still have the original intended solution.

    It's been great to see so many new levels by @Fendi in the forum lately. I really enjoyed his Obesum last week, with its mysteries and surprises and beautiful design. The fun moves inspired some ideas, so I tried something a little different instead of the stars, and a new ending.

    I've enjoyed quite a few levels by @AJX and have been impressed by his many creative ideas in the (relatively) short time he's been in the forum. I was inspired by his idea in A FRIEND last week. So I tried something a little different with the tipping piece.
