Creation

SPRK is created when:

  • BTRY is placed within 2 pixels of any conductor except INST, INWR, PTCT, or NTCT.
  • ELEC, non-brown BRAY, LIGH, or THDR hits a conductor.
  • PHOT hits a layer of PSCN with NSCN behind it.
  • PSNS, TSNS, DTEC, or LSNS are activated
  • CLNE with ctype SPRK is next to a conductor
  • VIBR or BVBR has a life between 1 and 300
  • DLAY with a life of 0 is next to NSCN

Reactions

Creates a current of electricity and is used to turn powered materials on or off.

SPRK cannot be placed alone, you need to put it on a conductive material. SPRK can travel through most conductors every 8 frames, with 4 frames of activity and then 4 frames of rest before a conductor will receive any more SPRK. Some exceptions to this are forms of WATR and GOLD. SPRK creates heat when traveling through most conductors.

SPRK can be blocked by INSL in most cases. As long as there is an INSL between the two conductors, it will not go through. Some special elements won't be activated through INSL either, although some will anyway (like PSTN). Some elements have special rules on which other conductors it can conduct to, see each element for help.

Uses

A must have for all electronics. Many different uses.
