In Response To: Platform Question (Ernie)

: Using the platforms tag extend from "both": Can a a polygon that
: has a floor and a roof both rise/or/lower simultaneously (like in a small,
: confined elevator)? In my experience, it's either the floor, or the roof -
: or you get a screwy "both" option that has both above and below
: moving in sync - but ignoring the values you enter in.

The only way to do what you want was demonstrated by Frigidman a long time ago - you need to use a stationary elevator and use moving platforms as walls. This means having your floors on the same level with each other - 5D style. It can be done for two levels with an elevator that exits on the opposite side on the second level, but the two levels cannot interact with each other - no connecting stairways, no views that include windows from the other level etc. I think it's probably best to stick with elevators without ceilings - unless you want to take on the challenge of writing B&B code.
