Talk:Switchwave

Why exactly is the 40-engine Cordership so complicated? Is its purpose just to stabilize the ends of a switchwave, or is there a plan to use the same pattern elsewhere to illustrate forward rakes and block eaters, or something like that? Seems like a smaller stabilization would illustrate switchwave just as well... or at least it would make sense to include a note that most of that switchwave support complexity isn't really necessary.

Simpler stabilization of switchwave

Also, 1200x1200 LifeViewers are way too big even for some laptop screens, let alone mobile devices. Maybe we should try keeping maximum sizes of embedded viewers, and infobox viewers for that matter, down to around 800x800.

... Yes, I definitely just made up that number, but LifeViewer generally works better if you don't have to scroll to see an entire pattern. In this case it seemed like there was a lot of unnecessary blank space around the edges, anyway. Dvgrn (talk) 22:02, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
