Do not fill this in! ==Breaking the Rules== There are some instances<ref name="standardbreaking">http://www.teamhassenplug.org/GBC/GBCStandardBreaking.htm</ref> when breaking the standard above (in certain ways) is actually conducive to a smoothly running Contraption. ===Turns=== If every module has its output directly in line with its input, we rely on skinny modules to be able to make turns. If there are insufficient such modules, constructing a closed loop becomes problematic. Consequently, it is useful to have some modules be able to deliver balls not necessarily in line with its input. ===Recirculate=== Sometimes a module needs a little bit of maintenance, which requires halting the flow of balls to that module. Rather than shutting down a whole section of Contraption, it is useful to have a module upstream that can (temporarily) recirculate balls. That is, send balls to its own input instead of the input of the next module. In all these cases, '''it is important that the module can still be used in a standard-compliant way'''. In other words, a module may be able to make a left turn in the ball path, but it should not ''require'' a left turn.
