- Enemy spawners and turrets slowly regenerate health.
- Electric pole connects to all poles in the reach with no common neighbor. The limit of 5 connection per pole stays. Building electric poles with shift pressed builds it without any connections.
- Straight belt pushes items from the center to one of the sides, so randomly inserted items on belt shouldn't cause sticks in the U turns.
