Class: StarPieceMother

A large rainbow-colored Star Bit. It supports different functions. If connected to a path, it will create a trail of Star Bits when it moves. Otherwise, it remains stationary and can be collected to obtain all Star Bits at once. If it's connected to a path, it requires SW_APPEAR.
