Linedef type 450
Linedef type 450, Execute Linedef Executor (from Tag), is a type of linedef executor which, when triggered, activates the tagged trigger linedef. This is useful for creating an effect which repeats in an infinite loop. Be careful, though, when creating an infinite loop – if this linedef executor is not delayed, the game will keep triggering it over and over without advancing to the next tic, trapping the game in an endless loop. To avoid this scenario, add a delay to the linedef executor with at least 1 tic.
This linedef should be tagged to the desired linedef executor trigger (tagged to the actual trigger linedef, not its control sector). Note that this effect only works when tagged to either a Once or a Continuous trigger; it will not work if tagged to an Each Time trigger.
