Hi players, in our latest update we made changes to better support tracing new images we have received that contain multiple cells closely overlapping each other. Each challenge will still be tracing one cell, but you will only be allowed to extend from either the soma of the target cell or an existing trace you have created or from consensus. Most of the cells with this restriction will have the Human-CL prefix. This is a pretty big change from how tracing worked before so please let us know your thoughts. Also checkout the other changes included in this update here. Thanks for playing!
(09/04/20) Hi players, we have released some bug fixes related to some issues with the camera automatically following your traces. We have also included a option you can find in the ‘Trace’ secion of the settings menu where you can disable the camera movement if you find it disorienting. Full change log here. As always, thanks for your contributions and let us know if there are any issues.
(08/21/20) Hi players, we have some big updates in our most recent release. In preparation for a new type of challenge we are hoping to release soon, we have added some new features. The first is an image clipping tool when using Virtual Finger of Connect-the-Dots-3D that will allow you to adjust the size of the visible volume you are tracing. You will be able to clip slices of the image to reduce the amount of signal noise while tracing with those tools. We have also made it so the camera automatically follows in the direction that you are tracing and loads adjacent 3D image data. This will hopefully reduce the need to have to go back to the 2D map while you are following a signal. We also fixed an issue with Virtual Finger sometimes freezing, although we have a more substantial performance overhaul for that tool coming in the future. The full changelog is here. Thanks for playing and let us know if you encounter any problems!
