The Wood Elevator Top Switch is a structure introduced in Aberration and also available on Valguero, Crystal Isles, Genesis: Part 2, Lost Island and Fjordur. It can be placed on top of the  Wood Elevator Track to create a functional elevator. But has to be next to or on a foundation for it to be in range for foundation support (unless the first track is on a foundation, then you don't have to).


After placing down Elevator Tracks, the switch has to be placed on the top of the highest elevator track. If any Elevator Platform is attached to the tracks and you are standing in front of the Top Switch, pressing E repeatedly will slowly lift the platform up.

The Wood Elevator Top Switch can be locked or made available for public use via the radial menu.


Patch  ARK: Survival Evolved Changes
275.0 Wood Elevator Top Switch is added to the game.
275.33 Platform switch collision is improved to allow you to easily directly climb onto it with a ladder attached to the elevator track.
