Wiring items can be connected together with Wire to form automated or interactive creations.
(This page under construction.)
- Normally, purely wiring-specific items such as Wires and Gates are invisible. However, holding certain wiring items, such as Wrench, Cutter, Gates, Switches, and Traps, will cause these invisible items to become visible, allowing the player to interact with them.
- There are four wire colors: red, green, blue, and yellow.
- To place Wire, hold the Wrench and left-click. To remove Wire, hold the Cutter and left-click. While holding either tool, an interface box will appear allowing the player to select which colors to place or remove. The player may place/remove more than one color at a time.
- Holding the Wrench, right-click a Gate to edit its properties.
- Holding the Cutter, right-click a Gate to remove it.
- A Wire is connected to any Wiring item it is placed on top of.
- A Wire is also connected to all adjacent Wires of the same color. The game automatically draws these connections as a visual aid, but the player only directly interacts with the Wires themselves.
- Wires are not connected with Wires of different colors.
- A set of connected Wires is either ON (lit up) or OFF (unlit). Normally it will be OFF, unless it is connected to a Wiring item (like a Gate output) that causes it to be ON.
- Some Wiring items like Traps cannot be crafted but must be found in Caves.

Examples of Use
This is a simple example of a Rock Lever connected to a Wood Arrow Trap.
- Toggling the lever from OFF to ON will activate the arrow trap, firing a single arrow.
- Traps will not activate faster than a certain cooldown period. Therefore, quickly toggling the lever on and off will not activate the trap faster than this cooldown.
- The trap will fire in the direction the player was facing when placing the trap.
Arrow Trap With Timer
In this example, a Timer Gate causes the trap to repeatedly fire arrows.
- The lever activates the timer. As long as the timer is active, it repeatedly causes the trap to fire arrows.
- Here are the settings for the timer in this example. Edit/view timer settings by holding the Wrench and right-clicking the Timer Gate.
- Red wire activates the timer; green wire activates the arrow trap.
- Every 22 ticks, the timer pulses the output, causing the arrow trap to fire an arrow.
- Currently, trap cooldown is 20 ticks, so reducing the timer ticks below 20 will not cause the arrow trap to fire any faster.
- Setting timer ticks to 20 will result in some of the timer pulses not causing the trap to fire. This is because the timer ticks is too close to the trap cooldown.
- Therefore, setting timer ticks to slightly higher (22 in this example) will ensure that every timer pulse results in an arrow fire, which may be more visually pleasing.
