My only comment on GUI improvements would be keyboard handling within the GUI.

For example, prefocusing inputfields and allowing for the use of tab to switch focus.

The current situation to configure a circuit condition involves a lot of excess clicking.
E.g.
Click combinator, click condition box, click input field, click select existing text, type.

This could be greatly simplified if the input box was prefocused and the text preselected, which wouldn't prevent selecting an item with the mouse.

Ideally I would love to be able to drive the GUI with keyboard only (tab/arrow keys, enter or space to select), but this may be too hard to implement with current code.

Simply preselecting input fields would save a lot of clicks, however.

GREAT GAME!
