Title  The Digital Elevator

The Digital Elevator v1_01 After an idea by Winlok. Are your PCs tired of running up and down the stairs? Have they had enough of teleporters that rip their component atoms apart in order to beam them away? Then the Digital Elevator is for you! The elevator works exactly like a real one. You push the button outside the door to make it arrive at your floor. How long you have to wait depends on how 'far away' the elevator is. Once inside you choose which floor to go to with the help of the control panel. When you have chosen your destination the door closes, you hear the rumbling of the machinery and the digital display changes as you travel upwards or downwards. 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 until you reach your destination, when the machinery goes silent and the door opens to another floor. The elevator can have up to 10 floors.

Should work equally well in multiplayer and singleplayer. The package contains a demo module, an erf file with all the necessary components to build your own unique elevator, and a step-by-step tutorial which even very inexperienced builders should be able to follow. v1.01 adds the option of making the elevator 'shake' while travelling. nereng

i went looking for this prefab i downloaded long ago and could not find it. i did a search for elevator and here i am. i can see i failed to vote for this one after trying it out and so now . . here's my perfect 10 score.

this script has quite a few uses. :)

thanks nereng for sharing.

This is a great little prefab that has been around for quite some time. Excellent work!

After the first "How Cute!" reaction, I begin to see quite a number of very useful applications for this, the first perhaps a 'descent into a mine' scenario. Very nice piece of scripting, visuals (in particular the floor numbers) and sound. Almost missed it, though, due to its catagory placement. Look forward to seeing more.

O_O please excuse my 3rd person referances to myself and any possible annoying spelling and grammer "mistakes" for a moment as i've got about... *checks watch* mmmm,,, 1 minute and thirty seconds or less before i totally lose it. that and my marbles. -. - - .-
*_* kao usually don't do this.... buuuuuuuuuuuuuut.... *takes an orange permanent sharpie and scribbles out "Just posting comment", then pulls out a BLACK sharpie and writes in "10.00", then pauses, then takes a wet wash cloth and carefully wipes out the "."* ^_^
And does anyone know/care WHY kaosu says it would get a 1000 if it could?
BECAUSE, kaosu's needed an elevator since a long while back.

Thanks for the nice vote, Commche!

I guess most elevator doors close automatically after a few seconds of being open, so maybe I'll make an update with that in the near future. I say "maybe" because I have a lot of things going on at the moment, so it depends on whether I find some free time for it. ;)

I remember that I was in doubt about where to upload this. I put it in Prefab becuase I sort of wanted to make a statement about how easy it is to import into a module, but maybe it would have been more corredct to put it in Scripts.

Cheers! :)

This is very nicely done. Love the floor numbers in the elevetor.

The doors not closing behind you after alighting can be fixed very easily with a simple trigger. Probably one of those small oversights that spending prolonged time in front of one's computer can often induce.

Great job! I would have thought that this belongs in the scripts section though...

Very good. Does the job a treat and the digital display is cool too. The only thing I thought lacking was the barred door closing when you exit the elevator.
