  • Z-facing neos are very similar to linear jumps (assuming optimal movement). To convert a neo, simply add 1.2 to its distance and increase its tier by one. For example, a triple neo is equivalent to a "4.2+0.25" (which cannot be built, but this sort of comparison is useful for analysis)
  • X-facing neos don't have a linear equivalent. Compared to Z-facing neos, they are "shifted" by 1 tick (wall collision begins and ends 1 tick earlier). This shift reduces the momentum, but makes it more efficient as the player typically has more speed at the end of a jump than at the start.
