Hi all,

I thought I’d mention some recent MagicTile additions:
a.. New settings allow you to view the IRP puzzles in stereo. If you are able to free-view, seeing the IRPs in 3D is really neat.
b.. You can now alter the number of repeat levels of your IRP puzzles, via settings or by pressing x, X, y, Y, z, or Z shortcut keys. Not only is this fun to play with, it could probably help make solving in IRP view easier.
c.. I spent time to handle spherical puzzles whose slices project to straight lines rather than arcs at puzzle build time. This let me add some puzzles I’ve wanted to properly support for a long time, specifically the "Big Chop" and the "Pyraminx Crystal". The FT Octahedron and GB 2.3.1 (a Big Chop Icosahedron) also fall into this category, and all four of these are available now.
d.. Skewb and an FTO Petal added too.
I also made a few cosmetic improvements:

a.. Added lighting to IRP puzzle rendering.<br>
b.. Improved the drawing of twisting circles for spherical puzzles, so they don't jump around when their radii become very large. <br>   click to download
