-------------------------

Now, this tutorial shows how using a 2-1-1-etc. step pattern with properly aligned middle textures can make a very nice vanilla ladder. The first sector must be two units long, twenty-four units tall, and however you like wide although I suggest 64 being the base floor size. The next sector is one unit long, twenty-four tall, and the same wide. When middle textures are applied and properly aligned with the floors and ceilings, it creates the illusion of a climbable ladder as opposed to a really funky staircase. It is also possible, doing this, to make ledges you normally couldn't climb climbable (25 unit tall ones, for example.) Expanded further, specially created transparent textures can be used to make a ladder by being placed close to and around the 2-1-1 area, and instead of using a backing ladder texture on the front using the same texture everywhere else. When done properly, this can definately make a map happen. You can also do a Goldeneye trick by placing a invisible custom item set to a simular size, allowing access into tall vents one would normally have to cheat to get into. Only the original 2-1-1 with a ladder middle texture is used here. Once you learn this one and can properly recreate it, experiment.
