90% sure the character in Creationist's pfp has yellow eyes. Just saying.
They're yellow, with green around a black pupil, unless he's transposed the colors or something... MMM's logo is yellow, too...

Just move your team to NC, and then you'll be allowed to keep all 18 people ;)

### Re: Gravity Vehicle C

As for an adjustable ramp (assuming you meant adjustable height), that probably wouldn't be necessary this year, though it might be next year.
