BulletPattern

<wait time="10"/>

    </bullet>
  </bullet_pattern>

System
The non sim pattern isn't a called through special pattern. It is called through non_sim_patterns or cue_non_sim_patterns. There may be other attributes that also use them, but I haven't used them. I think you can spawn them in normal special patterns and they are nonsims there, but I haven't tested that.

Nothing really. It just demonstrates the use and creation of a nonsim pattern.

I've tested, and now I understand this whole non-sim thing a bit better, thanks! :)

Great!
You can also do some interesting things with the Shader. But I haven't really spent any time on it.
