- No fall damage while sneaking
- Sneak elevators
- Sneaking is weird on partial nodes (such as slabs)
- And more, see here
I never liked sneak elevators because they were glitchy, not a real feature and besides also massively overpowered (you climb 3× faster than with a normal ladder, so this makes ladders mostly worthless)
I have a simple and lightweight idea for an alternative to sneak elevators:
Allowing the set a climbing speed factor on a per-node basis on climbable nodes.
That way, we could have standard ladders and turbo ladders with greatly increased climbing speed. :D Of course, turbo ladders would be a mod thing, but they would be a fun and simple alternative to sneak elevators.
For Minetest Game, steel ladders could have a slightly increased climbing speed (compared to wooden ladders) to make them a little bit more rewarding. :-)
Do you have other ideas to replace sneak elevators?
