Hi TeTeTe! I'm doing some WW2 carriers with sabre's Naval Legends, and wanted to know if it's possible to get some help when it comes to creating an elevator, and, if it's possible to straight up use the same system/module you use on the nimitz.
Thank you very much for the mod!

@abel1717 press CRTL+L and it'll spawn the crew and start the final preparations, then CTRL+SHIFT+L starts the launch sequence
