Every node has an Immune flag, also known as Clone Immune Flag. When the Immune flag of a node inside a Clone is on, it is not affected by any change to the master clone. You can use the Immune flag add extra operators or additional data that does not exist in the Clone's Master Component.
The Immune flag on components is a 3-state flag.
- Node Immune - makes only the parameters and the component's panels immune.
- Network Immune - all nodes inside the component are (recursively) immune.
Components can be made Network Immune, where all the nodes inside the component's network are immune as well. The .toe and .tox file size savings gained by making a component a clone is lost when a component is Network Immune.
When the .toe file is saved, all cloned nodes are NOT saved in the .toe. Immune nodes are saved since they are not defined in the master clone.
The 3-state flag is on the tiles and also in the editor list "t" mode.
