then edit its properties (tab), and set the name to
You can still use the
back_collide properties, like on gems, to change which wheel(s) will trigger the burst.
And that's it! A short tutorial, to be sure, but the upcoming one about style layers will be quite a bit longer. (And, after that, there's only claims and I'll have taught you all there is to know about Rktcr level editing.)
