  1. This was fun and sometimes quite tricky.

    But, I couldn’t play the Infinity level because it was hard to see what bar I deleted. Is there a possibility to zoom in to get a more crisp view of the structure?

      Glad you are enjoying Catastrophe – I’m one of the developers. It’s not quite finished yet, and the selecting of elements on the more detailed models is something we’re working on improving.

      Also – Don’t forget to turn on Forces to see the stresses in the members. It makes it more informative and also easier to know which ones you can safely remove.
