Spaghetti code can be caused by several factors, including inexperienced programmers and a complex program which has been continuously modified over a long life cycle.
Wikipedia has some experience of SpaceChem, I see.

Once I complete most of the ResearchNet levels, I plan to go back and (attempt to) refine some of my solutions. "Life: Cytosine" is first on the list. The solution I made is atrocious.

My solution for No Ordinary Headache, the hilarious part of this was earning the achievement 'Efficiency Specialist' for it (for completing with 1 reactor.)

http://steamcommunity.com/id/Waistle...03156226132377 ended up being 5408/1/85

The screenshot alone doesn't do justice for how convoluted it was. Highlights include the waldo looping several times to move an element just a few spaces.

Here's my hideously inefficient solution to "No Stomach for Lunch":


898 cycles, 1 reactor, 54 symbols

Judging by the statistics for everyone else, it's pretty clear that there are better ways to solve this.

Ha ha I like this thread. But you all gotta see it this way: you can make more complex solutions than most of the other players, so your brains work better than theirs
Here's one of mine, and there will be more in the near future I fear -.-

Everyday is the first day

This took me about 3 hours to make work
It's basically the first plan I came up with, break off 4 H and store for later, such a hard tactic to make work though
It's beautiful

Simultaneously my most horrible and triumphant solution. I was wrestling as to how to figure out the 1 spare hydrogen problem in "Accidents Happen". Well, I cannot believe this actually freaking worked. http://steamcommunity.com/id/Waistle...37859244366635

Though surely I'm not the first person to try that...

No thanks necessary. Took me 9477 cycles, while most people are in the 2-4k range. Did that a while back, but its probably something I could go do now and come up with something better.

Since this game went on sale recently, we need more entries into this awesome thread. Don't feel bad, Rube Goldberg solutions are awesome!

I forget what level this is, but this is a terrible solution that works.

Too bad, I've seen this thread too late. I had pretty much of those "out of scale solutions" but I reworked them yesterday to try to find a more effective way. Aniway, the point is that it work, and the feeling of finishing a level in spacechem, no matter how crappy is the solution, is still one of the greatest feeling I had in videogames lately.
