Challenge #148: Rotating Century Puzzle

15 - Aurora
15 - Aurora

Completed, but it may be not really a nice solution.

13 - Pulsar
13 - Pulsar

Not as elegant as some of the macro solutions.  The formula to lock the relative ring positions to each other took some time, but ultimately let to a single (correct) solution.

8 - Asteroid

I used join function for current position and next position. I don't know if this approach is dynamic enough. It will probably require a few more rounds of joining if it has > 6 positions.

8 - Asteroid

I did this two different ways. I think there has to be a better way than i did it, neither are very dynamic and i do not like them but they both solve the puzzle.


The first way i used MOD to create a position key. My second solution was to create a key from the positions then find the next one along, after doing this twice i had only 6 results.
8 - Asteroid

Decided to go the non-macro way... 

13 - Pulsar

My solution!

Loved this challenge - a true puzzle!  Had seen this challenge and a solution prior to it becoming a weekly challenge, but really took time to understand it for myself...so it's not as pretty, but gets the job done!  (It also pays to read the instructions carefully...)

7 - Meteor
8 - Asteroid

My solution to get the code then validate the code with a small macro to simulate turning.

8 - Asteroid

Wow, a fun & complicated challenge as I like 🙂

I did it with a batch macro.
