PLEASE PATCH:When you get of the ladder, your jetpack turns on. While climbing up your hold W, but if you keep on holding, you will smash a wall and die. Please a add and an option to turn on and off autoturnig of jetpack after getting off ladders. It is extremely uncomfortable. Otherwise the ladders work great :)

I second this. It is also very immersion breaking when the engineer activates the jetpack after he climbed up a 100 m ladder :).

This happens on dynamics grids only BTW. On static grids it is fine.

Came here to report the same.

Main annoyance to have planetary vehicle with ladders and being forced constantly switching jet-pack off. The only reason I putting ladders on things is because I don't want to fly there but climb...


On the other side - I feel that it's devs hack to no bother decidng where to put you after exiting ladder... Anyway, just tell us, are you going to fix it or we need to switch to stairs and ramps again?

Same here. Just don't have the jetpack on. It takes full few seconds to figure out what's happened every time I get off the ladder. Leave aside useless jetpack fuel use.

This is still a issue, please Keen fix this.

Had this issue's with this just last night, was getting really low on hydrogen as i was not near ice on a planet so i made a ladder on the side of my large grid rover to save jetpack fuel but every time i went up the ladder it would burn a little bit. Cut it really close before i could find some ice, was down to 12% or so.

Even aside from using jetpack fuel this is a big annoyance to have to toggle off the jetpack after climbing a ladder.

+1 to this. I feel we should have the ability to switch our jetpack on (or rather "prime" it so we don't get kicked off) while we're on the ladder if we feel it's necessary, and doing so also sets the dampeners to auto.
