    One thing I've always wondered/had difficulty with is stairs. What's a good slope (rise/run) for them? 1:1 is too steep but 1:2 is too gentle. 2:3 seems OK but is a bit annoying in the counting department.

    Thanks!

    Also remember to place a Playerclip over your stairs, as without one when people walk up them other players see it as an incredibly jerky mess.

    Hah, i forgot i made that poll.

    The more you use and implement 2:3 stairs the more you get used to the odd angle alignments. It becomes easier to make them with a little practice.
