Do Not limit structure height for new elevator.#17296

G

In the commits for the new elevator block, there is a posting that states that the new elevator block may only be built up to 6 floors high. If they are implementing an elevator, one of the main draws is to get to the top of tall structures more directly and more quickly. Why then limit the height of the elevator, thereby making it less appealing?

Alistair explained that it should prevent players from building space elevators (would be kind of relevant with a space suit coming this update though)

Nothing prevents you from making two elevator shafts I guess. Will take more electricity but if you own a giant base then it shouldn’t be a big problem.

I don’t understand the space elevator comment. With stability, you’re already fairly limited in your structure height. 6 floors isn’t that high. If there were to be a limit how about 10 floors instead? I wouldn’t care if it was 6 floors per electrical setup, but the way I was reading it, I think that means you would need to ride an elevator up 6 floors, then get out and get into a whole different elevator to go further up. Does anyone know differently? Understanding that no official details may be available, all I’m suggesting is not to gimp elevators at the onset.
