How do I use a .bsg file?

Alt Walker Mechanism

Similar to the standard Strandbeest, but slightly different.

Hold <- arrow to align, the up and down to actuate.

The mechanism is nice, I like the pattern they move in and it looks like it'd work amazingly for a fast-running creation

Actually this gave me an idea, by using the same mechanism I use in my engines to correct the pistons to adjust the upper wheel it will follow a slightly different pattern and lift the feet up for a longer period during the return stroke
that allows for better movement with less "legs" on a slower pace and also allows switching to a faster running pace

though you need take the wheel slip in count
Under load the powered wheels may not behave as anticipated, it's best to chain them using cogs/powered cogs
