Updated: 5th Feb 2012 at 9:28 AM - Noticed a problem when both ladders in use

UPDATE 10.12: Added stackable version of the ladder.
NOTE 5.2.2012: Ladders use same resources, just pick one version. I will fix it later so that you can have both in your game at the same time

Here is a half-tile ladder for your cramped spaces and factories.

It is fully functional and sims can use it to move from floor to floor. However, there is no animation and the sims just teleport to the next floor.

The footprint of the ladder is half a tile. However, you need to leave 1/2 tile space free in front of the ladder so that sims can access it. Also leave some room at the top of the stairs so that the sims can get off the ladder. If you don't the sims will complain that they cannot use the ladder.

When you place the ladder, a floortile appears on the upper floor. Hammer that floortile away!
