Pallets include a simple particle script, this needs improving. The particle effects can be triggers as part of the normal drum sequences using the internal command.
There is no reason why other effects scripts can’t be added
The drum can also synthesise the behaviour of stage trucks, for trucking on and off whole sets, left or right and also a family competent fly system for flying object in and out of the theatre fly space (if there is one).
One thing the drum is reluctant to do, largely because huge effort was taken to make the scripts behaviour as “physically” as possible and to be as accurate a model of the real work stage this is based on. So given this huge reluctance will be shown to make this behave in non physical ways.
