|A Moving Elevator in level Green Heaven by AwaggKing.|
The platform starts as stationary, with no buttons visible, and the lights on its sides blinking. When the player character lands on the platform, it will activate, causing the horizontal movement buttons to appear, and the platform to move vertically automatically in its set direction.
Once the platform starts moving horizontally, the platform will start moving slowly before gaining speed and eventually reaching maximum speed, while the vertical movement speed remains the same until reaching a vertical stop. The player character can stand on the side buttons to control its direction, while a Push Block can keep a button pressed.
When the player character gets off a horizontal movement button or a Push Block is moved away from it, the platform may take a while to stop moving horizontally depending on its movement speed. The Moving Elevator can pass through terrain.
If both horizontal movement buttons are pressed at the same time, the platform will behave as if neither are pressed.
Force Beams will be blocked by Moving Elevators while they are in contact with them or their point of origin, similarly to them being blocked by other solid entities.
The platform can be set to three different vertical directions in the Level Builder:
- Upwards - The platform will move upwards automatically when activated.
- Downwards - The platform will move downwards automatically when activated.
- Horizontal Only - The platform will not move vertically when activated.
Moving Elevators stop going horizontally when they are in contact with the horizontal borders of an area, even if there is a disconnected screen next to them. However, they still can leave the screen vertically if set to move upwards or downwards and there are no Moving Elevator Vertical Stops.
Moving Elevator Vertical Stop
|Moving Elevator Vertical Stop|
Moving Elevator Vertical Stop is an object that stops a Moving Elevator from moving vertically past it, but it will not stop the platform from moving horizontally.
If it is possible to navigate a Moving Elevator horizontally around a Moving Elevator Vertical Stop, the Moving Elevator will continue moving vertical once again.
- Push Blocks can clip or zip through walls when pushed into them by Moving Elevator, this can also be used to clip the player into walls.
