Ropes+ is a combination of three different mods. The goal of the mod is to allow players to easily climb around the map using ropes and grappling hooks. The three mods are as follows:
-303’s Elemental Arrows
-SDK’s Grappling Hook
The most important feature in the Ropes+ mod is, in fact, the grappling hook. Players simply craft a length of rope, attach a hook, then fire the grappling hook at any surface or block. The rope will automatically extend down from that block, allowing players to climb up or down.
How is Ropes+ different than SDK’s Grappling Hook mod, you might ask? Well, the Ropes+ mod has one major advantage over the original SDK grappling hook mod: players can recover their ropes after they shoot it at a surface. Simply swing at the rope to break it apart and then collect the grappling hook. This makes it easy to scale tall cliffs and other surfaces without repeatedly crafting the same type of grappling hook.
Another change in Ropes+ 1.6 is the fact that rope arrows can be fired at vertical and horizontal surfaces. So, while the grappling hook must be fired over a cliff in order for it to latch on to a horizontal surface above that cliff, players can use a rope arrow to extend a line down from a cliff overhang or climb straight up the face of a cliff.
