Sector type 160, Special Stage Time/Spheres Parameters, is a sector type which sets the time limit and blue sphere requirement for Special Stages in the non-NiGHTS format. The floor height determines the time limit in seconds and the ceiling height determines the sphere requirement. It can be used on any sector in the level, though it is usually more practical to put it in a separate control sector outside the map. This makes it easier to adjust the sphere and time requirements during development without changing the level geometry.

This special only has an effect if the map in question is recognized by the game as a Special Stage. This can be set with the SStage_Start parameter in the MainCfg block. However, the special will not have an effect if the map contains a functional NiGHTS track.
