I personally dont like the jump pads, it is effort and time to set them up nicely as i am really into the aesthetics and the game is made to look pretty, all the wiring... and that you could do something else at the same time.
Alltho this is the only way(that is not a glitch) currently to get up faster. Does the tractor trick throw you higher upwards in the air then a jump pad? i could maybe setup one in there as my pad elevator is indoors anyways, after 10 floors(assembler height) the jump pad starts to feel frustrating, 20 floors is already a nightmare and theres like around 30 floors, gotta count them sometime. i should maybe build a new tower in parallel and build downwards as new things come, get the end products coming down with liftveyors.
And that does not take away the fact that theres a bottleneck on 17th floor that needed a single conveyor for 3 products and one of them gets overfed if there is a slightest hickup on the lines and you know how smart splitter responds to overfed lines. I tried to live with a single liftveyor outside of the building but could not. I mean its a perfect square and pink that tower of mine and that liftveyor was like a giant mole on its forehead...and its my baby tower, been there since early access came.
Also does a tractor glitch fit on top of a single foundation? that could possibly solve my bottleneck.
Btw, instalift would also bring you down faster than jumping down with a jetpack, altho that is not a problem at all.
I am also not saying that pads arent fun if you like to spent the time fiddling with them...
