Could we get an exploding band? I suppose you could get it by allowing the band strength to go negative. This would be useful in scripts where pulling is not an option

Do you mean a band that pushes apart? You can set the length of the band to something long, would that work?

yes a band that would push apart is what I would like to see. I think a negative strength would be a good way to control it. But I don't quite know what you mean by setting the length to 'something long'.

I haven't really played around with setting the length before. It works pretty well to push a structure apart. Lots of cool new features in Foldit now. ;) I guess I should be asking to be able to set lengths in cookbook.

Would be a good idea to turn a puzzle inside-out.

We can make bands length up to 10000 units. Done.

We also need this for GUI, not only for scripts.
At the moment, maximum value for setting length via GUI is still <=20.
Maximum length value should be there distance from first to last segment.
This would stretch the puzzle entirely out.
(or about 3.8*segment index distance).
Numerical input could help.

I set this to ongoing, as we still need this for GUI, too,
maybe not with that high maximum value (10,000).
