I think I may be fed up with how the elevator motors need to be powered so I am going to suggest 2 new types.
The solar powered shaft and the flywheel powered shaft.
Crafting the solar powered shaft will require 1 solar panel, 1 elevator motor.
Same goes for the Flywheel powered shaft, 1 flywheel, 1 elevator motor.
Second thing I want is for elevator shafts to have electricity pass through them so you can throw wires through them and different places.
And a Slight 40% of electrocution but it will only hurt your blockhead by a 0.1th of a Hit Point.
