Part 17: Week 7 Challenges - CatalystsWeek 7 Challenges - Catalysts
Catalysts are something that speed along a chemical reaction (or make it possible at all) but are not consumed in the process. It's similar to leaving garbage in your reactor as we've seen, but this time you need to reuse that garbage, over and over. So some of the puzzle is to figure out what catalysts you need, how to make the first one, and how to regenerate them. There is no puzzle in the regular game or ResearchNet that requires anything like this.
Challenge 14 - Carbon Snakes
Based off of a puzzle by JG
Task: Split a carbon snake in half - without having any bonders.
Goal: LEAST SYMBOLS
Tiebreaker is least cycles, then fastest time of solution submission.
Challenge 15 - LP Catalyst
Based off of puzzles by zaq1xsw2tktk
Task: Find a way to extract the oxygen from a sulfer ring without using bonders.
Goal: LEAST CYCLES
Tiebreaker is least symbols, then fastest time of solution submission.
