Pattern buffer itemsEdit
These are things that are only itemized in your pattern buffer. Released from your pattern buffer, they return to their normal state. However, they can also be beamed into a recycler, but cannot be recovered. For furniture patterns, they can only be beamed into open positions in allowed rooms.
