Note that this doesn't allow you to make infinitely complex creatures, the limit is increased a large amount, but it isn't infinite, so if you make a creature that is too complex it will not be pollinated.

Specify -none to disable an existing filter and return to normal graphics.
blocksmode blocksmode This cheat code enables and disables (toggles) blocksmode. When blocksmode is enabled, creatures will render as their blocky meshes (i.e. as square outlines), instead of with their usual textures. As this is a toggle command, typing it again will turn it off.
