Double No.1 Tower (44.4, and 44.1) Kamal Hassiba12/11/2008 - 19:17

I made it
I got a new tower in a different style at 44.4m (EDIT: now 45.2 ;-))
it looks simple but needed extreme babysitting to keep it straight all way up + bringing up the dumb Goos along

check it out

and here is my older one (44.1) with long triangles

Sorry "J" you are third now!  ;D

Yup, I guess I was lucky to find about this game during my Holiday
The Holiday is over, tomorrow will get back to work.

but I still want to build more towers when I have the time for it

lol, it is not even a tower, it is a flower, hehe

I see you have made a good tower with the long triangles
according to "J" this method consumes alot of Goos
you could have made it higher if it was thinner but that would make it very unstable, except if you make it very symitrical.

my other 45.2 tower is very stable up to around 36m
then it was a nightmare to control it
had to restart it more than 50 times, backing up the file and reloading it every time it falls
once I reached the top I could not find my 3 free goes, they were on the ground!!!!! duh

all my attempts to free some Goos from the ground up failed
it had to be solid with no free wholes! or it will collapse!

I might build a new one and add some modifications.
if I can get it to a stable 40m then I can boost it with a quick 10m using 14 Goos to get me to 50m

my only problem now is finding the time for it
each tower took me more than 6 straight hours!

I topped both towers to 45m
failed to make it any higher
except one time I made it to 46 but was too greedy and did not exit
never manager to make it 46 again
