When you have a spiral Stair Left or Stair Right, it'd be great if you could place either a vertical Jump Pad or a smaller U-Jelly in the centre of the spiral, for either a quick launch up or a quick return down from high up floors.

Unfortunately currently the footprint is too large and our old friend Clarence objects to the idea.

Put the jump pad down first, and then build the staircase around it? The staircase will be wider, but achieve the same result.

After giving OPS suggestion a try, I can see the frustration. The staircase clips to it's own relative pieces; trying to get around that could be quite ugly.

This is my work-around: https://i.imgur.com/gzg1eZx.png
Not ideal, and takes up a lot of space - but achieves the same end.

One unfortunate thing about the walkways is that you can't build a foundation floor from a walkway hanging in the air, so it doesn't work to start building a new floor.  Though you can work around that by building some walls first.

I tend to do what I'm trying to do first. So, if I need a second floor, I'll actually build the floor first and then try to put down the staircase.

In my first play-through, what I did was build a staircase that led to the second floor, and put a jumping pad beside it for when I was too damn lazy to go up several flights. :P

I though that the jump pad was designed to fit within the spiral staircase - though I haven't tried myself.  Are you sure you are assembling the stairs correctly?

It looks like it *should* fit -- that was my point -- but it doesn't.

You're right, it doesn't fit!  I'm sure I heard somewhere that it was designed to fit. Oh well.
