FIXED!

Somehow a single line of code had been deleted introducing this bug!

Download the fixed version 2.4.2 here:

Oops, maybe this is more what you're after: http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd237/RobertCWebb/Base3.gif This is easily achieved once you've got a model of the cap on it's own in Stella. Just select the large base, use "Poly->Augment Polyhedron" (or hit "a"), choose to augment using a prism. You c...

Hmm, on that board I can reproduce it! Weird, barely anything changed between 2.4 and 2.4.1 other than updating the web links. But maybe something else snuck in.

I'll look into it and get back to you. Watch this space.

Thanks,

The little hut/house thing? Hmm, might disappear if I ever get around to figuring out how to customise the forum :lol:

Wax polyhedra!

I've mostly stuck to paper polyhedra, but I did once try my hand at polyhedral candles, made from wax. Here's one I made: http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd237/RobertCWebb/CandleDod.jpg And here it is still in the mold: http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd237/RobertCWebb/CandleDodMold.jpg The id...

Looks great! Yeah, send me the .stel files. I'd like to watch the cross-sections animating if nothing else! :D Might even add some to the standard library. I could at least upload a collection to this site so everyone can access them. I expect the two .stel files that should act the same act differe...

Here's my first attempt: http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd237/RobertCWebb/Base.gif I used faceting mode to create a separate cupola (the cap above the red line), then augmented one of these to another at the top pentagon, then used faceting mode again to create the convex hull of this but with a...

I don't see any mention of "vertical" on that link you sent.

Did he send you a physical copy of the paper? If he just emailed it, maybe you could forward it to me. I'd be interested to have a look, whether or not I'm able to make any sense of it myself :?

Ah, excellent idea for a thread. You asked me about this once before and I don't think I ever got back to you :oops: Not sure Quith would work very well. How are you thinking of breaking up the octagram arms? The Net of hexagon duoprism is an interesting choice. For anyone reading with Stella4D, it'...

One problem with adding new features like this, and other features that customise the game-play, is whether I would also then have to support local/world records for them, and for all combinations of them. It gets kind of unweildy, but then it's a shame to let that limit what features can be added. ...

I'm not familiar with these polyhedra. How does "Vertical" have meaning with regard to polyhedra? Do you have a link to a site describing these polyhedra in more detail? Probably no new feature is required in Stella for this. Just need someone to figure out the face normals and put them into "Stella...

The yawn always scares me, if I have sound on. It happens after a lengthy delay without opening a tile, so it happens when I've either forgotten about the game, or I'm concentrating on figuring out where to go next.
