Basic Power configurations
Symbols for significant power levels with distinct effects.
The above scheme is simplified for practical use, but there are configurations that it can't describe.
The block updating order and internal states are not described here, but can have unexpected and temporary side-effects. It is easy to create "phantom" power in ways other than shown above. An off-switch attached to such positions then removed is a reliable remedy unless there is an active source causing it. It is also common for tiles that should be powered to remain inactive, or be made inactive by touching unpowered dust for example. The remedy is to force the update to work differently either by resetting power or partial rebuilding.
