Hi all,

In an effort to make recipes more accessible to new players, I'm putting out a call for nominations for "Best Recipes of All Time." Selected recipes may be added by default to the cookbook and/or turned into Actions of their own. For nominations, please make a comment below (one comment per recipe) with its name, a link to its recipe page, and why it should be chosen as one of the best recipes of all time. Please vote on other players' comments if you agree with their nominations!

Thanks!

What is the reason?

Why should this recipe be chosen as one of the best recipes of all time? You need to provide this in order to have a proper nomination for your recipe to be in one of the Best Recipes of All Time.

Four of my all-time favorites

Banded Worm Pairs Inf Filt 1.4.5 slow, but steady for the endgame
AFK3.1(BounceWiggle) alternate with bpi above to add fuze to the mix
QuakeR v4.5 great for very beginning to squeeze the protein down and reduce voids
MicroIdealize 4.0 test also great in the beginning to "idealize in place" - doesn't fling protein around like Random Idealize

Where is the link?

May you please provide the link to each of the recipes' recipe page? You need to provide this in order to have a proper nomination for your recipe to be one of the Best Recipes of All Time.

Also joshmiller said to have one comment per recipe so I think you should have four comments for each of your four recipes.

Rav3n_pl GAB BiS v 2.0.2.

Hello! I am donuts554, and I recommend this recipe Rav3n_pl GAB BiS v 2.0.2., at https://fold.it/portal/recipe/41981.

This recipe is made by the user Rav3n_pl, and is a Genetic Algorithm for Bands (GAB), and uses Bands in Space (BiS), which are bands that connect the protein to a point in space, and bring that part of the protein closer to that point.

This recipe uses Bands in Space positioned in random places around the protein to expand the shape of the protein, and then wiggling it so that it can contract into a shape that yields more points.

I recommend this recipe to be one of the Best Recipes of All Time because it helps you gain all of the potentially big amounts of points from your protein.

I think that this recipe is one of the best of all time because it is very good at shaping the protein in a good way, because I have gained a lot of points from running this recipe.

Also I believe it is a good first recipe to use after you have hand folded, because it also uses fusing algorithms (fuzes), which help stabilize the shape your hand folded protein through wiggling and shaking at different clashing importance levels. Using fuzes also incorporates(fuses) any changes to the protein, by stabilizing the altered shape.

Also, this recipe was recommended by Susume, a highly-ranked Foldit player in the video about the tips for the coronavirus puzzle at Foldit's YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzSCkJ0w4Dk 44 minutes into the video, saying that the recipe was "a great one to use".

I also believe that this is good enough to be one of the best recipes of all time, because while other recipes do not show GUIs or have confusing GUIs, this recipe has an easy to use GUI that shows up at the beginning. This vocabulary in this GUI is mostly basic vocabulary, and also you can adjust how long the recipe is going to run by adjusting the number in the "Generations" text box, which is the number of times it uses the Bands in Space.

Because of how this recipe fully accomplishes its job, its integration of fusing algorithms, simplicity of GUIs, and good review from a professional Foldit player, I believe that this recipe should be one of the Best Recipes of All Time.

Link Error Correction

Whoops I accidentally put a period at the end of the link so it redirects to the wrong website.
The link for the recipe page is at " https://fold.it/portal/recipe/41981 ",
instead of " https://fold.it/portal/recipe/41981. ".
I am very sorry for the inconvenience my careless error may have caused.

Hope this recipe is nominated! :D

maybe keep it simple...

I'd nominate Blue Fuse (or Blue Fuze). The basic function is useful in all phases of the game, maybe right up to the very end. It's also a classic Foldit story, where Foldit players figured something out on their own, and it turned out to be a close match for the Fast Relax algorithm the scientists were developing.

Blue Fuse is also simple, and the basic idea is covered in the "Control Over Clashing" intro.

Simple means small, so you might even get most of it on one screen.

Recipes like DRemixW/EDRW, Fracture, and GAB are great, but tend to be on the large and complicated side. There are also lots of branches on those trees, so picking the best one will not be easy.

It's long past time to replace the four GUI recipes in the default cookbook. The "By Strides" option still isn't working, so examples 2 through 4 won't run correctly. (Not a good start.)

While we're at it, I'd suggest starting the recipe editor with a blank Lua (V2) recipe.

I'm not sure that turning a recipe into an action is necessary. Just clicking on something in the cookbook is easy enough. Being able to customize the cookbook is a big plus in my mind. For example, you want to fuse, you can select the fuse recipe of your choice, even your own custom version. Having a "Fuse" action, even with a keyboard shortcut, doesn't seem that much easier, and it also takes away the flexibility.

Next step, I'm going hunting for a Blue Fuse....

new Blue Fuse

I slightly vandalized the original, so we now have Blue Fuse 2020.

It's actually almost exactly the same as the 2010 version, except for a few print statements and a switch to the V2 Lua interface. I actually dropped the superfluous "select_all".

At least on my laptop, the recipe mostly fits in the recipe editor window, missing just a few comments at the end. The print statements should just fill one recipe output window.

All Time ?

I think that the best recipes are generally the latest ones because they are adapted to the latest developments of the game AND they build on a lot of primary good ideas.

But if you want to keep it simple, I would list the most used functions within recipes in general (then it's possible to track the original idea ever):

-Blue Fuze (used in almost all modern meta recipes)
-DRW (deep rebuild worst): strategy used in most modern DRW recipes
-GAB (generic band algorythm): used in most modern GAB recipes
-Quaking rebuild: it's a combination of DR and GAB
-many modern recipes combine DRW and GAB: Fracture, constructor, ebola ...
-Total LWS: the base of many LWS recipes (multiwalk, JET, last parts of fracture and constructor)
-SaveBest() is a very powerfull function in modern recipes, in order to manage best results from time to time
-recursive wiggles is a very powerfull way to wiggle or shake or mutate and stop when the gain is too small

There is a difference between "blind" and "informed" recipes. Blind recipes walk or act randomly:
-"random" strategies like in GAB or Banded worm pairs
-walking recipes like walking rebuild

Informed recipes first retrieve formation from the puzzle then act in function of this information:
-focused strategies (focusing on worst residues) like Quickfix or DRW, or on voids, like void crusher. Ebola is may be too sofisticated to be efficient but it continuously adapt it's behaviour and default dialog depending on the context. As does tvdl_enhanced DRW.

Then you have more recent ideas in recent recipes with new tools, like taking track separately of the bonus and the score: e.g. bridge wiggle for overweight of the disulfide bonds.
Or specific mutate recipes: mutate_all, mutate no wiggle ...

Also joshmiller said to have one comment per recipe, so I think you should divide that comment into multiple comments with one for each recipe.
