tl;dr version: How can you cross from the roof of one building to an adjacent building’s roof?
I decided to try the Lost Faith start in the stable 0.E release, where you start as a religious figure in a church of some kind. There’s a swarm of zombies on the ground level below me, and they tend to collapse the building pretty soon after you start the game.
The first iteration I tried, there was a building whose 2nd floor roof touched mine, and I could walk across to next door and escape that way.
Every iteration since then, there’s at least a one-tile space between my roof and the adjacent one. If I examine the gap, it gives me an option to jump across, but I’m too scared to try doing so. I’m guessing if I had a higher Dex, I could do it.
You can’t seem to construct a floor over an empty tile. I checked around the forums, and it seems that I could bridge the gap by going one level down and building a roof, but of course I’m precisely trying to avoid going down there.
I thought maybe a grappling hook would help, but it doesn’t seem to have any functionality.
I tried a stepladder, and while that let’s me climb down, it doesn’t let me move from roof to roof.
I feel like there has to be a way that someone with a few levels in Fabrication could quickly construct something that lets them move across a single empty tile, but I’ve run out of ideas to try. Any suggestions?
