Proposal: The Prelude

Cannot be enacted w/o CoV, 1-7 -Darth

Adminned at 05 Jan 2011 13:20:21 UTC

Add a new Rule to the Ruleset.  Call it “The Great Wall” and give it the following text:

A Construction is a Wall Segment if its name is of the form “Wall Segment N”, where N is a natural number. (i.e. 0, 1, 2, 3…)

A Wall Layer is well-formed if it fits all the following criteria:
*Either N is 0 or the Mini Figure whose Workbench contains the Wall Segment also contains a Wall Segment N-1.
*All bricks in the Wall Segment have a defined height and a Dimensions attribute.
*The x dimensions of the bricks in the Wall Segment sum to at least 1 and no more than 12.
*All bricks in the Wall Segment have the same height

If a Wall Layer that is not well-formed is ever present in a Mini Figure’s Workbench, it is immediately disassembled and the bricks it contains are returned to that Mini Figure’s Bucket.

Disassemble any Wall Layers that are not Well-Formed and return the bricks they contain to their owners’ Buckets.

against It switches between the terms Wall Layer and Wall Segment in the second and third paragraphs, with the result that Wall Layer is a concept that is used but not defined.

Also, the first bulleted point reads like the mini figure, rather than their workbench, must contain Wall Segment N-1.

Also also, the dimensions of bricks are consistently called [z] and [y] in the rules, so ‘x dimensions’ is not well defined (one might plausibly ‘assume’ that x refers to the number of dimensions, which is always 2).

against Already find sloping bricks to be confusingly worded, and this one here is far worse.
