Those both look good, thanks! The changes to both remove the found backroutes while keeping in the intended ones.

Earmarked the steel-less Tinker Tailor from 2016-07-29 20:35:22 for Lix 0.10.5. This re-opens a small backroute by Wibble (I forgot details, there is a forum thread elsewhere) which mobius considers less of a problem than Ramond's backroute.

Earmarked both of my fixes for Chasm and Wait Why Is There a Tree for Lix 0.10.5. Thanks for the feedback!

For 0.10.5, I propose this backroute fix for Division of Labor. It's a single triangle added in the background, see screenshot.

This prevents a lucky right-facing basher from cancelling directly before the basher reaches the diagonal shaft. Now, the basher will see enough pixels that the basher decides to continue. The diagonal shaft will still open from bashing and then kill left-facing walkers.

Edit: Earmarking this fix for 0.10.5. I didn't get feedback, but it seems sensible to me. The terrain looks nice and the fix prevents my backroute. If you don't want it, let me know, and I'll remove it in 0.10.6 or beyond.

I agree with Ramond that behavior looks very odd.

Either one of two things should be true:
1) the basher keeps going until he falls into the gap and (presumably a] stops bashing, or b] continues to bash at a lower level OR
2) she shouldn't be able to bash that in the first place

-----------

I'll try to take a closer look at the level in question. There's nothing I have to add; the fix looks fine to me.

Thanks, earmarked Divison of Labor and The Last Laugh for 0.10.5. Indeed, everything is covered with existing replays.
