No good at all. (a) There's no explanation of the solution; (b) while I found the "cheap trick" that makes the room easy, it was still perfectly solveable the "hard" way.

This is the final version of my second entry.

(In other words, if you spot another alternate solution, you can PM me, but I will only put up a new version after the contest is over.)

Thanks to Chaco, Jutt, Rabscuttle, and Tahnan for helping with earlier versions of this hold.

And yes, I can PM you, but I think that in the spirit of the contest, it is important for everyone to know that there is still an alternate solution left. (And to be honest, I find PMing scary.)

Yeah... it might be a good idea not to piss off the voters. Just a suggestion.

I'll admit, I was the one who modded down the post. Probably unfair of me, but all the same, "unguessable scripting" isn't a cheap trick, it's a stupid irritation.

The two are not mutually exclusive, and I daresay this is a cheap trick. It's just not a very good one.

My problem is the excessiveness of how it was executed, and not specifically the "trick" itself. Although I will certainly agree I would not consider it an especially good trick.

Why? Embedding Caravel's graphics in holds without distributing them it's fine if I'm not wrong...

Errr... so what do you think that attaching a hold here is if not distributing? :huh

I mean distributing the graphic files. If you embed a citizen tiles in a hold, nobody could export them without ripping.
