TR 783

Could we get TR783 as an "extra credit" CASP puzzle?

I know most players can't really fold too well on the larger puzzles, but I like the idea of the "extra credit" puzzles.

I'm sure I'll get a lot of "boo-hiss" on this comment, but I'm sort of getting bored of the smaller CASP puzzles... There are a lot more interesting shapes in CASP that can't be captured in the smaller ones.

Thanks!

Good to have a look at and interact with the bigger ones as well if we can as extra credit puzzles at 10 points

How did both of you feel with Puzzle 897?

We asked for your feedback about Large CASP targets in general when we posted 897:

a couple pennies

I saw the amount of "boo-hiss" from most people, and didn't feel like posting my 2 cents.

I liked 897, and felt it was a fun challenge, and was worth my time to dedicate clients to. I understand that some others can't fold on these very large puzzles due to computational constraints, which is why I suggest posting them as extra credit puzzles. That way, the CASP rankings aren't affected by those who don't have powerful computers (I know at least a few people in my group who can't fold on these huge puzzles because of their computers, but are doing very well in CASP).
I can run large puzzles (yes, it starts getting a bit laggy around 200, especially with heavy sheet folds), but just because others can't doesn't mean I shouldn't be able to either.

Just my 2¢. Thanks for reading :D

I feel a large part of the backlash to 897 was the frequent crashing caused by the undo graph problem.
