Make it big enough to fit a few units. -Next, place the elevator so that it is right next to the cliff without being raised. -What we need now are elevator walls. Elevator walls are on the Bridges/Ramps section of the doodads. Place two horizontily, one under and one above and place two veritcally, one to the right and one to the left. If you press 'P', you will be able to see the elevator walls. -Now we have to move the elevator walls right onto the elevator, half on and half off. Click an elevator wall, and hold the Ctrl button. Using the numpad move it onto the elevator half on and half off the elevator (8=Up, 4=Left, 6=Right, 2=Down). Do it for all four elevator walls. -Now that we did that, we need to place a region. Make a region that is smaller than the elevator. If we make it the same size, the unit may be able to walk off and the elevator will just move leaving the unit behind. -Now we need to make the triggers. We need only three triggers. There is one action that needs to be done, but it can be done in another trigger, so technically it's only two triggers. One trigger has to be Initially off. -Trigger One Trigger: Events: Unit - Unit enters elevator Conditions: (You may add if necessary) Actions: Trigger - Turn off (This Trigger) Destructable - Close All Walls of Elevator (2) 0000 Destructable - Set height of Elevator (2) 0000 to 3 * Wait 2.00 seconds Destructable - Open North Wall** of Elevator (2) 0000 Trigger - Turn on (Trigger Two) -Trigger Two Trigger: Events: Unit - Unit enters elevator Conditions: (You may add if necessary) Actions: Trigger - Turn off (This Trigger) Destructable - Close All Walls of Elevator (2) 0000 Destructable - Set height of Elevator (2) 0000 to 1 * Wait 2.00 seconds Destructable - Open All Walls** of Elevator (2) 0000 Destructable - Close North Wall** of Elevator (2) 0000 Trigger - Turn on (Trigger Two) -In another trigger, you need the action Trigger: Destructable - Open All Walls** of Elevator (2) 0000 Destructable - Close North Wall** of Elevator (2) 0000 * - You can change this value to anything you want. Note: Cliff raised once you will need to set the height to 2. Cliff raised twice you will need to set the height to 3. And so on. ** - The wall that you open/close can depend on where the elevator is going to bring the unit too. In my example, it will either bring the unit northward or southward. __________________ The Lich King Games Website: ~~http://www.freewebs.com/the_lich_king_games~~ ~~Please check it out~~ If I get enough ideas, I may start up again on this map.

The units tend to walk in some kind of trench between them, no matter what size you choose. This is because the sides of the elevator model is slightly rounded; i got a edited version that is totally flat and allows units to move from it to another. Just PM if you need it.
