@stimpy1901 Programming skills update:
In a practice run, team 394 scored 34 points! Since it's not my team, I will not divulge the scoring method. If they can keep it consistent, they will be deadly for this competition.
Hmm... there are only so many ways to score 34 points. If you treat goal caps, the platform, and the bonus cube as a family of 5-point scores, called "fives" below, these are the combinations I can think of:
Six fives, plus four cubes -- possible. Four caps, plus the platform, plus the bonus cube, scoring just the four onboard at the beginning would be 34.
Five fives, plus nine cubes -- just barely possible. It's likely that this would consist of scoring the four onboard cubes, then draining one autoloader and scoring all that. This would be much harder than the first option.
It's just barely possible to figure three floor cubes plus two autoloader cubes, but that would take a long time and is more prone to error. I'm guessing it's the first one. It's the strategy our teams are using. :)
