Thanks Sanjay and Arvind @ EV3Lessons, On the Demolition part, if the Black bars are pulled into Safety and the team does nothing with them, do they still get penalized -8 per Black Bar. Form your explanation of the rules it seems it seems the net penalty is -16 per Black Bar as soon as the Building is demolished, even if the 4 black bars are pulled into safety. 96 (-32) + 85 (-32) Thanks, Arun On Tue, Nov 10, 2015, 08:10 EV3 Lessons <[log in to unmask]> wrote: > Thanks to everyone who confirmed that the EV3Lessons Trash Trek Scorer is > working accurately. > > As Coach Levine requested, here is a summary of any questions sent to us > by email: > > 1) The 4 black bars with the ref are also part of the game - you can get > "bars in original position" for them and you can get "bars elsewhere" > because of them (if you get a penalty). > > 2) The truck must have the yellow bin on it AND the truck with the bin on > it must be east of the guide rail at the end of the game to get BOTH sets > of points for that mission. > > 3) Black bars from demolition are worth 8 pts each when in original > position.
