Make _ Copies

Use this edit box to change the number of copies of this modified design you want to introduce back into the population. You must always introduce at least one. Any further copies you add will overwrite current members of the population from the end of the population (the least fit) moving toward the front. You may, in fact, replace the entire population with the currently selected design if you so desire. If you replace a significant number of the current population with replicas of a single design, you are driving variance way down, and evolution may move more slowly. However, it may move slowly around designs you are more interested in.
