Ropes, Cables and Zip-Lines for Rappelling

Recommended Posts

As explorers exploring unexplored caves, ropes and zip-lines should be essential tools of the trade.

Imagine your astroneer rappelling up and down a deep cave, or zip-lining between two distant points, say, two mountaintops or a cave entrance and down its depths.

Harnesses, ropes, cables, anchors, pulleys, grappling hooks and their delivery systems, all could be unlocked from the research catalog and crafted using already-available materials such as iron, tungsten, titanium, aluminum, or copper.

Another idea: we could even hook anything and send it up a rope or across distances using motorized pulleys.

It would be glorious. It would truly bring exploration to a whole new level...

Oh yes, yes and more of that YES! In MP this would be a blast! Zip-lines with multiple Astroneers on them simultaneously would be fun as 💩
But wait, how would we attach tethers to them? We would have to have tethers cause you know.....

Through the zip-line, of course!  😎

Maybe the next step in the evolution of the tether would be a zip-line anchor. Call it "medium tether." It would stick to the ground instead of lying on a surface and provide an anchor to zip lines as well as life support...
