Inspired by the Best Recipes of All Time thread, here is a slight update to Blue Fuse v1.1, published in 2010 by Vertex.

Blue Fuse extends the idea in the Control Over Clashing intro puzzle, using different values of clashing importance (CI) during shake and wiggle, attempting to improve the score.

Blue Fuse compared favorably with the Fast Relax algorithm that scientists were developing around the same time. See A Framework for Scientific Discovery through Video Games by Seth Cooper (on Google Books) for a comparison.

This 2020 version adds a few print commands, so the recipe output window and the scriptlog file will show what happened.

The 2020 version is rewritten to use the new "V2" version of the Foldit Lua interface. The original Blue Fuse 1.1 used the "V1" interface, with a more limited set of commands.

The recipe output should just fill the recipe output window. The recipe itself should fill about one screen in the Foldit recipe editor.

See the comments at the very end of the recipe for areas which could be improved.
