    Making an elevator

    I'm trying to make an elevator that is pulled up by a chain. I have a chain and an elevator, now I just need to get the chain to pull the elevator up.

    I was thinking of making the chain one giant mover (along with the elevator) attaching the chain to the elevator, and use Kismet to move the chain up (and since it's attached the the elevator, the elevator too).

    My problem is, I need a way to make the chain disappear as it goes up. I was going to use a CullDistanceVolume, but that only works on static meshes, and I found that if any part of the mesh is in the volume, it all gets culled, instead of just the portion in the volume.

    I thought a portal volume might work, but there are no docs on it. Anyone have any idea how I could do this?

    I would make some geometry for the chain to hide inside of.

      Yeh, like a hole in the roof...

      Just dress it up to look the part though...

        I would do that, but it's an elevator to take the player up a cliff. Like the Thunderbluff elevators in WoW.
