A results and solution commentary video for "Doping", the week 3 puzzle for the 2017 SpaceChem Tournament.
Puzzle description: http://steamcommunity.com/app/92800/discussions/0/1290690926872876803/?ctp=8#c2119355556482982973 Full results: http://steamcommunity.com/app/92800/discussions/0/1290690926872876803/?ctp=13#c1368380934286233263
In this video, I run through each solution, explain how it solves the puzzle, and point out interesting design features of particularly unique solutions. I also briefly talk about optimization techniques, space-saving techniques, how particle-smashing works, and other relevant SpaceChem behavior.
Hopefully this video helps explain both how to solve tricky "polymer" building puzzles like this one, as well as some ways to save either cycles or symbols.
