Ball Cars are vehicles used within RuptureFarms to transport Sligs, Mudokons, and supplies throughout the factory. Ball Cars connect the sub-areas known as Zulags and must often be activated elsewhere in the departing Zulag . The Zulag 1 Ball Car only needs one lever to activate it, and it is right next to the terminal door. In Abe's Oddysse's Rupture Farms area, even if you pull the lever, you cannot go to the terminal. In New 'n' Tasty, however, you can go to the terminal, through the ball car, and arrive at the terminal to Zulag 2, in which you will be rewarded with one lone Mudokon. You cannot go into Zulag 2 in the introductory visit of Rupture Farms, though.
Zulag 2 is far more complex, requiring three separate levers, found in the three subsections. Once they are all activated, you can go to the terminal, through the ball car and to Zulag 3. In Abe's Oddysee, once you've exited the entrance terminal, you can re-enter the terminal, and go back to Zulag 1. This was removed in New 'n' Tasty, as Zulag 1 and 2 are distinctly different chapters.
Zulag 3 is the most complex, also requiring three levers, but with larger subsections. In Abe's Oddysee, unlike the previous Zulags, you cannot return to the entrance terminal.
This Zulag, gameplay-wise has no exit terminal, only an entrance one. The next area, the Boardroom, is not connected by a ball car.
The mysterious Zulag 5 does not exist on any map of Rupture Farms, contains no Mudokons and can never be accessed. The only way we know about it is through a secret area, where a cleaning crew is clearing up a ball car that has crashed in New 'n' Tasty.
