Add suggested prop or other editing concepts the thread.

In playing the game I often wish I could place certain props.

I'd love to see the introduction of a ladder prop. The ladder prop is used numerous times in many of the campaigns and is often usable. I know there's probably some scripting that makes this difficult to include and make usable AS a ladder. However the benefits of using a ladder as opposed to just jumping or flying with precision is obvious. Stairs take up to much space and zombies don't always see it as an option for use.

I'd love to see the introduction of a one-per-person-jukebox, like the teliport. Being able to place and delete a jukebox using the same code would make things more fun for those of us who hole up in one place. Should probably be a deletable prop to prevent misuse.

Although a ladder does have its...pros. I think the jukebox is wayyyy more important. Killing zombies to Midnight Riders? Hell yeah! Twisted Evil

Real ladders aren't created with entities, they're made during the actual map creation and can't be replicated.

The best you can do is create a stack of small props at an offset angle looking down. If you're wondering how that's done, I'm sure Doodle would be glad to explain.

Very well. Creating ladders/stairs is a simple task if you have a small or thin pror to use. I use the info bubble because i feel like it ("prop_dynamic_create extras/info_speech.mdl"). Putting these props in a line to make a ladd is really simple. First, look straight down towards the ground under where you want the ladder to be. SecondStart building until desires length of ladder is complete. Third, test it and make sure its good to climb and escape the horde. Hope i helped.

I see, so it's not possible per se to make a ladder out of props, but a staggered stairway. And all those ladders I've seen are physically part of the levels they're in. I'll stick to my ramps then I guess. I saw some appeal in an extreme climb and not a gradual one.
