Retractable Ladders adds two new blocks to the game: A retractable ladder machine and a rope ladder to fill it up with. It works in both the client and the server.



Rope Ladder

Retractable Ladders Mod

This is a type of ladder made from vines and planks or iron. It must be hung from the underside of a block.

Retractable Ladder Machine

Retractable Ladders Mod

The machine itself can be oriented any direction except facing up and down, and must be filled with rope ladders to operate. When supplied with a redstone signal, it will cause the ladder to unroll as far as it can (when it runs out of rope ladders or it can’t reach any further) and then retract.
