I need some help.

OK, this makes my head hurt just trying to figure out what has to happen at the same time.

During the resting phase of the hydraulics a truck has to go from bottom right UP to top left, AND a truck has to pass from bottom left to bottom right, somehow passing through the roadway the truck going up is traveling on.

During the activated phase of the hydraulics a truck has to drive from bottom right to bottom left OVER the boat AND a truck traveling from top left must drop down onto the roadway to exit on the bottom right AND a car coming from the top right (going TO the left) has to drop down onto the roadway and exit to the top left.

This seems nigh impossible, especially without cables to make swinging structures.

I'm gonna have to think on this one for awhile before I even start building anything.

Let me know if there is anything I'm missing/have wrong.

The purpose of the hydraulics is to open or close the connection between the roads.
The ship travels under the bridge.

Check again the sequence of the phases.

btw: sorry for the "fase" mistake... is phase

phase 1 - A truck drives from the bottom right to the top left tunnel.

phase 2 - Hydraulics phase

phase 3 - A truck drives to the left between the two bottom tunnels

phase 4 - Hydraulics phase

phase 5 - A truck then moves back (to the right) across the bottom, and at the same time the boat passes underneath. (fixed)

phase 6 - Hydraulics phase

phase 7 - A truck travels back down (from top left tunnel) and at the same time a car drives across the top to the right.

END

Well, your design is cool, but I must be missing something.  How can the truck move back to the right (phase 5) with the top road down (hydraulics at rest) and blocking the route from left to right?

The truck can move back to the right (phase 5) with the top road down.
Then takes place the phase 6 (hydraulics), and in phase 7 both roads (up and down) are open to the car and the truck.

The first image is when the hydraulics are in rest.
Then the position of the decks are fine for phase 1 and phase 5.

The second image, is when the hydraulics was operated.
On this position of the decks are fine for phase 3 and phase 7. '<img'>

If the truck in phase 5 moves across the bottom road from left to right when the road is down (first image), how does it get through the roadway?  Again, I must be missing something.

We are talking about the Complex 6 level, right? '<img'>

"If the truck in phase 5 moves across the bottom road from left to right when the road is down (first image)," <<< stop here !!! '<img'>

HERE, '<img'>  the hydraulics phase takes place,and set the position shown on the second image.  ':<img:'>

then, the truck can cross the road in down , and the car can cross the road above   ':laugh:'

OK. I finished the level.  Here is the correct order of events:

A. A truck passes from the bottom right to the top left.

B. Hydraulics phase.

C. A truck passes from the bottom right to the bottom left.

D. Hydraulics phase.

E. A truck passes from the top left to the top right while the boat passes underneath. (The truck had a tendancy to fall THROUGH the roadway on me.)

F. Hydraulics phase.

G. A truck passes from bottom left to bottom right and a car passes from top left to top right. (The car also sometimes flew off the road -- crazy driver)

I scored about 5000 pts which is not spectacular, but not too bad.  I was pleased with my solution.

Well done! i'm glad for you, because you can solve the puzzle without significant help. '<img'>

the level: Complex 6

This is the images of the my final solution with less hydraulics.

OK, after a short hiatus, I'm BAAAAACK....

Complex 7 is giving me fits again.  I can't figure out what to do with the back anchors (if anything).  I can make a fairly stable structure utilizing the ten heavy steel beams, but it still keeps breaking right in the middle no matter what I do.

Help!!

':p' Just wait for Complex 8 '<img'>

My first complex 7 are made with iron steel and heavy steel.
But i built another with Iron only! '<img'>
