I hope at some point we consider upgrading lifts to something like grav shafts (which don't require the animation, logic and modelling that moving elevators do). However, in the meantime the elevator block, which is a significant feature in many designs and gets regular close up viewing, is aesthetically very poor. The white bits and the lateral beams are particularly ugly. It would be very easy to make a significant improvement to this. My suggestion is to: Remove the sideways posts so the block contains only four posts (easily turnable for sideways elevators) Give the posts a better shape, perhaps triangular or triangular inset/cut away Allow posts to be painted/textured It's a low-cost improvement that would have a significant aesthetic benefit. I certainly also agree with others that adding versions of the block with self contained walls (glass, solid or combination) would be useful.
