FLL Mission Overview Part 4 - Power Plant Supply
Objective: Move several types of "fuel" on the mat to the Power Plant's property (enclosed by road).
Point Worth: 10 points each for a maximum of two trees in the property, under the condition that another tree has been "planted", 10 points for at least half the load of black coal in the property, 10 points for each green uranium, 5 points for each white oil barrel. Maximum of 85 points.
Mission Location: Near top-right (North-East) corner of mat.
Estimated Difficulty Level: 4/10
Time Length Rating: Medium
Unique Challenge Aspects: Only mission which you can lose points by completing fully.
This mission is probably one of the strangest this year. That's because doing two of the deliveries in this challenge won't give you any extra points, but one of them will in fact decrease your points! You can push the trees anywhere north of the main river to count 10 points each, or you could try to get them all the way to the north edge of the mat, into the Power Plant's property to get...well... the same amount of points. Oh, and you would still have to push one of the trees north of the main river to count as planted, anyway. :P The Oil Barrels are even worse. You could just keep the Oil Barrels in base and get 10 points for each. But if you wanted, you could have your robot push them all the way across the mat into the Power Plant's property... and get 5 less points for each! Unfortunately you're not allowed to move the red oil barrels to the property, so you're stuck with 10 points for each of those. :-)
Anyway, this mission's difficulty is rated at 4/10 because it should be fairly easy to push the deliverables to the Power Plant with the robot, but there is some amount of accuracy required and you do need to push several models.

Richard's Comments: Just wanted to remind everyone that the trees and the windmill must be upright. And I must say, those windmills are really topheavy, so watch out!
