Crushable terrain bearing testament to a recent Tyranoform. Emits Basic Synapse and Capillary Synapse. Data version: 3.19

Capillary Towers or "spires" are left behind after a Tyranoformation has dealt its damage. The towers are easily destroyed and can be crushed by vehicles and walkers. The synapse they provide is useful, but seldom lasts long due to the towers' fragile nature.
