Does anyone know what the minimum and and maximum length for the structure we have to build for the competition? Thanks.
There is not a minimum or maximum length for the entire structure but the distance between the Loading Point closest to the Testing Wall and the Testing Wall needs to be at least the distance specified by the Event Supervisor. This value will vary from competition to competition so it is important to look for this value before building.

It varies between competition.

For future competitions, do we have to purchase our own SkyCiv or will each tournament give a limited time subscription?

I would think that they would provide it, because SkyCiv is basically (if you know what I mean) like the testing wall in actual boomilever building. If they don't provide it, teams would have to be obligated to purchase their own program, which doesn't seem fair. But yeah, it's like the "test" or the "testing wall" at competition, which the tournament would have to provide.

It's both the Boomilever and the Testing Wall. :?:

In a sense, I guess they are giving us the boomilever? I think of it as them giving us the boomilever materials, and the competitors building it and testing it. It depends on how you use the materials ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yeah, I've had some very... scary scores (in a good way.) Is it just me or does the contact width line not really effect your score?
Uhhhh lol scary? In what sense? I've been getting normal scores using last year's dimensions.

There was a bug in the system that was fixed which gave participants scores of 100000 + haha.
I've been getting some very very good scores, which is obviously good for me, but sometimes they're just unrealistic, as in the fact that I've gotten over 12,000 once.
Btw It was with 20 cm minimum load distance and 3 cm contact width line dimensions
And it was also during the time that point loads were a thing.
Basically no, it wasn't a glitch, but you can not do it anymore because point loads are no longer a thing.
