Zipline


Recommended Posts

Please make the zipline a little bit faster. Increasing the speed to 20-30% will be enough. I’ve watched a couple of youtube videos about the update and everyone said the same thing “ziplines are too slow” For now i find running faster than actually using the zipline unless you build a VERY VERY high tower. It’s painful to build high towers with just stairs. I hope you can make ladders in the future too. Thank you.

Janelle, post this in the Public Beta forum .... Ziplines aren't in the Release Build yet.
you'll have a better chance of the Devs and Staff seeing this in the correct forum 👍

You would want to put the zipline near your base tho

Sure, but you could build a really high base on, say, one of the shrink machines (I recommend the one the crow lands on, as there's a SCAB to be found up there), using bounce webs to speed up the transportation of material. Then you can build a zipline on there that connects to key locations throughout the map. The zipline works best when you have multiple outposts. I'm just disappointed that the zipline's construction requires weed stems, which throws building them inside the newly expanded hedge zone out the window. I really hope that they will also add weed stem substitutes that can be found on branches, as ziplines would be incredibly useful inside the hedge zone due to all the vertical terrain and spiders (which can warrant a quick retreat if you become overwhelmed.)

I know what you mean. I  have almost 200 hours on this game and I'm not gonna move my entire base just for the zipline to be faster.  I have a very high tower next to my base but it still isn't enough by how ziplines work right now.
