-Because [[kcgenerators|generators]] distribute properties across multiple nodes, they often have more than one value to manipulate. ​ Doing so provides the mechanism by which nodes can do things like be shorter at the top than the bottom or just have slightly different values of a property for the sake of random variation. ​ The following image shows a typical generator property.+Because [[kcgenerators|generators]] distribute properties across multiple nodes, they often have more than one value to manipulate. ​ Doing so provides the mechanism by which nodes can do things like being shorter at the top than the bottom or just having ​slightly different values of a property for the sake of random variation. ​ The following image shows a typical generator property.
