What is this?
In 2012 PixelTail released a Gamemode for Garry’s Mod called Elevator: Source. Where the elevator would take the players to various locations, before arriving to its final floor.
In the past 2 months I’ve been working on a Condo that re-captures the essence of Elevator: Source. After the I/O update was rolled out I started planning and experimenting, how it could be made in Tower Unite.
With the help of 13 community members, we created 25 unique floors to have a glimpse into on your way to the top floor.
The Condo has over 900 Condo I/O Connections that keeps the elevator and the floors in motion.
The ride itself takes about 30-35 minutes from the start to finish. There is enough space for 3-4 people in the elevator, with more people than that playermodels might block the view from each other.
The ride is linear, the floors are not randomized, I could not find a reliable method to randomize more then 20 floors (20 sided dice) and solve that every floor only gets picked once. Also placing 20+ teleport volumes in the same spot was something I did not want to deal with. But having as linear ride means I can have multiple elevator running, and late joiners wont miss any floors.
Between the floors it takes around a minute till you reach the next floor, just enough time to wind down from the previous floor and build anticipation for the next.
The Condo will be hosted public for the first time at:
