The Winch and Simple Rope is a formerly hidden blocks made available in v0.11 and is placed in the same manner as Brace and Contractible Spring.

Function Edit

The winch is a tool to create functioning cranes and mechanical muscle if assisted with contractible springs. The rope has no structural integrity so it will not retract back if not supported by an anchor object.

Unlike the brace and the spring, the winch is capable of transferring fire across its length and can be used to ignite blocks from afar by using a harpoon.

The rope can support a surprising amount of tension - you can use an anchored, rotating chain-flail to swath a flat level - but is vulnerable to contact with sharp objects such as the Metal Blade, Spike Ball, Spikes, Circular Saw, Propellers, Wings.
