About electricity and player elevator, I think I would make top, bottom, middle with stop and middle without stop
Electricity would be based on substations but with an extention to the roof
Elevator would have some straight scaffoldings

What do you think about the idea ?
  • item elevator : two sets, Yes, (each set containing lower and upper parts I assume you meant ?) + based on loaders, yup, but that would be my part to code :)
  • player elevator : top, bottom, middle with stop, YES. middle without stop I honestly don't see the point.
  • Electricity : I'll be honest, I don't have an idea of what I want here, so ... I'm sure it'd be fine :)
  • Elevator : are you talking about the stairs ? if so, I want them made out of stone (the only thing you can 100% get in the underground) so scaffoldings don't really make sense if they are going to be iron

Originally the player elevator without stop would be if a player make a factory that have a lot of roof to desserves, entering the elevator would ask for the roof to go and those without stops would be hidden from that interface.

I see your point, of not being blocked in the undergrounds and to always have the oportunity to go up, in that case, I think of a way of doing that :
Holes permit to only go down,
Stairs permit to go up,
Placing a stair on a hole place it in the lower roof,
Placing a hole on a stair place it in the upper roof,
Holes without stairs are visible from the lower roof with some light effect to help placing a stairs with at least the ressources from below.
Holes couldn't be destructed by biters, it would need a tool to fill that hole.

Stone stairs are for me a structure that don't fit the idea of automatisation, so I think it would be some really rustic stairs that an engineer would only make to get out of the underground, stone-path/concrete stairs would be availlable to fit all the stone-brick/concrete covering engineers would put to make nice underground factories.

I don't really see the use in that, but maybe because an elevator can only be 10 flores heigh. (for now)

I did think of that, but it means a huge amout of code that would need to be added ...
So no holes for now.

when I said stone stairs, I was saying anything that allows the player to change level that is only made out of stone, I can simply be 3 Stone blocks stacked above of the previous one !
with some indent to let the character climb
