There is a fix.. i just dont understand it.. you have to check out his videos.  They changed the way redstone intereacts with the repeaters/diodes.  Other then having to expand out 1 side.. I dont see how this could have affected what we had done so far.  Its hard to tell, and I mgiht be missing something.. we might want to destroy it to 20 blocks high or so, so we have a mini scale... then work on getting it working.. since Im pretty sure we both have a good understanding now of how its supposed to work.  I just like that guys zipper because it was so compact.

Can you give me a link? I will look at it and see what I can get from it.

Hhh, We don't have floor selection... (yet at least) so ours should work if it was done right.

Also, I was thinking we could consider making a different type of elevator. To make ours have decent floor selection would make it very complicated, and I think it would also make it to large at the top (where the water it).

It might be a good idea to try new design. I would prefer something that is realistic (stairs don't push you up or down in real life lol) but that is not the real problem. We need something that is not as big or complicated, or at least is the same size the entire way (having decent floor selection on our we would end up making the one in the video you linked)

Maybe we could make this one ...
It is not super fast, but its decent, and floor selection is much easier, being built right into the floors of red stone, instead on the huge side sections that we would need for ours. We would also, unfortunately only be able to move up/down one floor at a time, adding in some bottom presses and making it slower (I see it as saving or sanity by keeping it a bit more simple) :D

I also came across this a few days back ... [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z5pG8CxkCuA&feature=related]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cix161oQWGA&feature=related[url]

The only problem is people don't seem to have created a way for it to go up and down, or floor selection. It is a great way to go up, but if we want anything else we would have to create it out of our own heads here.

This one is amazingly simple to make ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4ARyIqSP-E&feature=related
And it can be make to look quite nice. Unfortunately it works best with just 2 floors (as pistons only push 12 blocks I think) and we would have to come up with something to make it work. We could just have 2 of these on each floor, one taking you lower and one higher, but I don't really like that idea. Although, this might a great elevator for some other occasions.

If you really want to, we can continue on with what we started, I do not mind. Tell me what you think.

Piston elevator worked.. once.. it has VERY mixed results.. I highly recomend avoiding it, as it will most likely bring you up a few levels then kick you out to your death
