Ramps are short contraptions built by the shaman to reach an elevated platform. They often must be constructed in tight spaces, and must avoid trapping mice behind them or blocking an objective. Simple ramps are constructed from planks, but more complex ramps may incorporate other items.
Basic Ramps Edit
Basic World Anchor Edit
This is the same as a basic bridge. Take a plank, give it a world anchor, ghost it, then lay it flat against a surface. Attach a long plank to one end, and you're done. Unfortunately, this technique often results in trapped mice, but it is one of the fastest methods of building a ramp.
Non-blocking Ramp Edit
This is an immobile ramp often used by experienced shamans. it does not trap mice, which makes it a great solution, although it can be time consuming for inexperienced shamans. First, use the standard technique of ghosting a long plank and global anchoring it against the floor. Next, ghost and attach a large box to one end, with an object anchor that is on one side of the box and rotated so that it is facing down. Then, attach one end of a long plank to the box, pointing away from the other end of the long plank (that is currently empty). At this point some talented mice will probably be able to get up, but the final step is to attach a small box on the other end of the plank, just barely close enough to the ramp so that mice can jump on to it, but not too close so the mice aren't trapped.
Gap Ramp Edit
When building a ramp (or in some cases, a bridge), you can substitute a long plank with two short planks and ghost one of the short planks. It just so happens that a short plank's width is just about right for a mouse to jump over. This is extremely helpful on Stairs for building a second ramp that doesn't block the path.
