 Viewing node Events moved by belts


Events moved by belts

The Belt Right and Belt Left events have significantly more power than they appear to at first, being able to move a great number of events which should logically never be moved. A few of these odd capabilities turn out quite useful, Destruct Scenery in particular. This list explains which events can be moved by belts and which cannot. How to use this information is up to you to decide, although a few examples are provided at the end.
