    Default switch with tweakable strength.

    ever wanted to change the strength on a 2-way switch? now you CAN!

    i was looking at an object from the collector saga, the iron cage (the one your friends are all locked in) and i noticed something about the switch, it had a hinge in the middle of it. when i tweaked its strength setting, it actually changed the amount of force necessary to pull the lever!

    i tried adding a hinge to a regular 2-way, but it didn't work.

    its fun, if you set it high, like 8-10, it takes more then one sack to pull it

    ill get pictures later. its 3 AM in my time zone EDIT: i swear ill add pictures eventualy.

    And to think I spent a good deal of yesterday trying to make something similar from scratch!

    This sounds really neat, I can see people using it for multiplayer puzzles where three people pull one switch (because it's very hard) and one player does something else...

    I haven't been on for a long time, but now I'm back :]

    Sorry to burst your bubble but I've seen some before on the level "Pyramid" by mysteriousK.

    Nice find! This is much like the tweakable laser from the MGS turret, it should be very useful. I'll need to find it and play with it later.

    Nice find
    Could be useful for people who can't squeeze in/don't want to take up space with other mechanisms like the "and" switch.
