It may look soething like this: code:``` o / \ / \ / \ o o / \ / \ o--o-----o--o / \ / \ / _o_ \ / _/ \_ \ / _/ \_ \ / _/ \_ \ / _/ \_ \ / _/ \_\ /_/ \ / o o``` Please excuse the bad ASCII art, but you get the point.

Did I spell that right?

 Posted: Thu May 16, 2002 1:41 pm    Post subject: 10 With curved walls,OK let's see if I can work this invisible thing...code:```... It's not too clear but there are two curved walls one like a closed bracket ) and the other like the top 3/4 of a C x / \ / \ x x / \ / \ / x \ / / \ \ / | | \ / | | \ x-----x---x-------x / | | / \ / / \x / / x___________/ ...```...but I don't suppose curved walls were intended in the answer.

 Posted: Thu May 16, 2002 1:49 pm    Post subject: 11 You only have three on the northeast wall. And I agree that curved walls were not intended. Just move some of the points a bit so the walls need to 'flex', and bend them between towers.

 Posted: Thu May 16, 2002 5:01 pm    Post subject: 13 It appears the simplest way is to merely move the bottom horizontal line up to cross the two inner lines above the central tower. This places two towers within the walls and satisfies all the conditions.

 Posted: Mon May 20, 2002 9:51 pm    Post subject: 15 I think thats the best way too.... it gets two towers in... the only reason it may be less desirable is that its too obvious see http://puzzleanswer.tripod.com/images/const.gif for the blueprints or see http://puzzleanswer.tripod.com/images/const1.gif for some really wild ideas Vijay

It's increasing the pagewidth unnecessarily. [This message has been edited by CrystyB (edited 05-21-2002 11:20 AM).]

 Posted: Tue May 21, 2002 4:44 pm    Post subject: 21 I added the [code] bit to your message, because without that, UBB drops all the leading spaces and everything slides over to the left. When I did that, I left the text intact, but I just now fixed that with a carriage return (End Of Line).

 Posted: Sun May 26, 2002 6:35 am    Post subject: 24 Um that solution is right I guess but the solution should contain only 2 towers in the center and the curved solution contains more. I think the original answer is the only reasonable one submitted so far. Snatch
