* You can now create cable intersections just by connecting cables. Unfortunately since the game calculates all possible routes for the current to flow every tick, having lots of intersections causes CPU strain. You can use any of the storage blocks (BatBox, MSE, MFE) to combine cables without causing CPU strain. Transformers can be used to split cables without CPU strain. Unfortunately you need two transformers if you want to maintain the same voltage. If you just need one "T" intersection in your cable then that's not an issue. CPU strain is also much less of an issue in single player than it is on a multiplayer server. --[[User:Trifler|Trifler]] 04:55, 14 October 2011 (CEST)

Has this been removed from the game? I can't find it in TMI
