That's what I do as well. Much easier than trying to fall onto a strut.

Oh, I realized that from the bottom, looking up at the ledge from near the door. I've gone that way every other time I've gone through. But the pipe shouldn't be made non-climbable. It's easy to jump to, and is slightly faster, if you manage not to fall off of it.

It had never entered my head to walk on a long and dangerous strut when you could so clearly just drop off the ledge near the tunnel, at least until I was told about the strut route. :? Although with all this jumping from high places (Kadish, Gareesehn, Gira), I am frankly astonished that everyone isn't wearing leg braces due to shattered bones! :shock: (now that would make an odd clothing option, leg braces :P)

One has to remember that gravity is not the same on all worlds. While they may be close to Earth gravity they may also be slightly less.

This is funny. I was the complete opposite of Stellaflora. I played URU, Prologue and UU and only found out in this thread that people were jumping down to the door.

Same here, Rusty. I walked around the ledge outside the vault door, saw that a strut lead to the door and used it. Next time I'm in Kadish I'll need to look for the ledge that others have been using. I'm stil not sure where it is.

It's the simplest thing you can think of, which makes it all the more amusing. When you first come out into the open and can see the vault keypad and door in front of you, go into 1st person (it's easiest to see that way), walk to the edge and look down.

You don't jump, you don't walk. You just run off the edge & let go of the keyboard.

Careful though. You see that bit of rock protrusion on the right side of the cliff wall? That can throw off your trajectory if you bump into it. Run just to the left of it.

Actually, although as you say, a run with no jump will work (haven't actually tried it, just trusting you), a walking jump will also work.

Squiggly path? What squiggly path? After falling off the pipe a couple times (yeah, I did eventually manage to walk it) I just jumped to the Door from the entrance to the Vault chamber. Looking forward to that in Beta (or Live, depending when I finally get in)... :)

heh, see, it never occurred initially to me to walk down the pipes, I have always jumped! It wasn't until quite a long time later in UU that I saw people walking down there, and was like "holy crud, I can't believe that..."
