Quality of Life!

Big, big props to the software devs. They're already starting to peel back the curtain of UI unclarity to the benefit of players trying to grapple with it's rougher side. I hope we see more work from them soon.

BUNS

If i understand correct, BUNS score will be just as adding score in some puzzles. Will you insert them into visual UI settings? So even without score i still can try make them (like sulfur links, for example).

Re: BUNS

There will be a visual representation of these atoms in addition to a score change. We will implement them as a view option independent of the filter pretty soon.
