I think Elevators proper are still not supported (hence the "comming soon!" description).

You can still make elevators with sleds and docking stations.

I made a Builder character to test these out, im still missing some stuff.

So far what i found out, you simply place the tracks, then connect one track to a generator so the track starts glowing green (powered). Then you drag the Elevator itself on the rails. Now you can walk on the elevator and use the up and down keys to move it up and down.

What im currently missing is a device to call the elevator to your position. So far the Elevator stays where you left it. Im not sure if such a device exists or not, but is needed to properly use elevators, especialy if multiplayer comes in. If such an item doesnt exist i would suggest to add a device (maybe use the sled node device?) that you can wire to power and to a rail segment and that calls the elevator to that rail segment.

Ive also seen a bug regarding elevators. If you move up or down and jump off while still holding the key the elevator will move into that direction until it hits a block. My test area didnt have a roof so i some of my elevators left the rails and simply moved up through the air.

well idk thought it was just the description, not sure, i got the raills powered but doesnt seem like i can place the elevator itself, perhaps you are right, what do i have to research to get sleds? cuz i have the stations and the recharge thing but i cant make a sled?

Dont place it from the toolbar (thats not working), open your inventory grab it and move the cursor over the rails.

My elevators disapear on reload. Happened twice...both occassions the track wasn't powered though.

I haven't been able to place an elevator yet! I put up a track, powered it, and dropped three elevators on it. All disappeared without a trace. I give up on elevators until they patch them.
