This menu was introduced in 84.0 to fill the needs of the lately added sensor materials.

INVS Invisible

Description: Invisible to particles while under pressure

When exposed to high pressures, INVS becomes intangible, allowing particles to pass through like E-wall. Photons can pass through and be transformed into neutrons, but only when NOT pressurized.

DTEC Detector

Description: Detector, creates a spark when something with its ctype is nearby

Temp: 22°C

Detector generates a spark when an it's ctype element is nearby. To set it's ctype, draw over it with an element like you would with clone. When drawing the metal that will receive the spark, or any solid element nearby it, don't accidentally draw on top of the DTEC, because that will set it's ctype and instantly start sparking nearby metal. DTEC can be used as a replacement to detector wall so that you can make your creations smaller.

You can set the .tmp to determine the radius it detects elements from (in the shape of a square)

TSNS Temperature Sensor

Color: Pink

Temp: 22.00

Temperature sensor is the second sensor material added, and works just like DTEC. It does not conduct temperature, but stores the temperature given. If a material that has more heat than the TSNS is close to it (in a one pixel radius, the 8 surrounding pixels), the TSNS starts to spark nearby conductive materials (in a 2 pixel radius)

You can set the .tmp to determine the radius it detects temperatures from (in the shape of a square)

PSNS Pressure Sensor

Color: Red

Temp: 4.00

Pressure sensor is used to detect if the ambient/air pressure is greater than the current temperature of the sensor. If it detects such a pressure, it will spark any nearby conductors. It does not conduct heat, but stores the pressure given, just like TSNS.
