Restore the old rebuild settings

… or at least modify them. As it currently stands the new rebuild will try many options close to the starting point and very few, if any, far away from it. Useful if the current structure is close to where you want it, less than useless when it's not. As it stands, 'freestyle' and 'quest to the native' puzzles have just become much more difficult without the judicious use of bands and manual pulling of segments. Not something that will improve game play.

Absolutely couldnt agree more. You've changed rebuild into an end-game tool - at best, which is not overly helpful. Structure mods in freestyle used to snap into place when rebuilding, at least giving you a direction to work towards - now you've 'dulled the resolution'. Where before, I could run rebuild to 4 positions, and get, let's say, answers of 6,2,1 and 9 - I now get 500 positions of 6.xxx, then another 500 of 2.xxx etc etc. As a start-game strategy, particularly for freestyles, it's dead in this new form. As a tool to help, it's become redundant.
We play, we report back from the front-line.

Please set this as a high priority fix.
It's like waiting at a red light in traffic, and trying to judge if a 3 photon change in brightness, means I can get to work on time.

Same here.
On freestyle puzzles, I often use rebuild almost at beginning to create helixes and to change the complete puzzle shape from "factory produced long rod" to a more handy and viewable clump.
And as rebuild mostly drops the score in the first moment (which is understandable and intended), it shouldn't be an endgame tool.

Thanks in advance,
Alex

Rebuild used to snap a helix or a sheet into its proper shape, no matter how twisted I got it when I started folding a freestyle puzzle. Now… I can let the rebuild function go ten minutes, and not once see a curly helix or a straight sheet.

The new rebuild should be kept, but as an endgame tool. It does seem to make small adjustments that can help improve score. But please bring back the old rebuild tool, as well.

Just adding my voice to the chorus. I totally agree with all the points raised in this thread.

Thanks for looking into it, Seth.

Having given it a few days to try the new rebuild I am in agreement with everyone above. The new tool simply will not rebuild a helix to save its life, and does not 'snap' sections into place at all. Reverting to the old rebuild looks like a sensible option to me also.

Agreed. Can't rebuild a helix at all. I left one for an hour, and it didn't look any different after all that wasted time.

PLEASE bring back the old Rebuild.

Add my vote for the old rebuild. All my beginning puzzles scripts are pretty much reduced to end game use.
Please hurry :)

I've just posted an update that should restore the original rebuild behavior. Please reopen if there is still a problem.
