In Make No Wonder, ziplines say they let you connect to nearby platforms. How nearby do they need to be?

Hi! I made Make No Wonder. Thanks for playing! I left some notes on the answers below. I'd be happy to answer any other questions you have about the game. – shipshape Nov 28 '12 at 2:16

You only require line of sight between both towers in order to get a zipline between them. I suggest placing camps around your ziplines so you have more vision, even though platforms do provide a good range.

Note that you cannot move while placing ziplines, so beyond vision you are only limited by the size of the game window:


If you look where I'm standing in the center of the picture I couldn't have walked up any higher to place the zipline on the tower below me. I barely stretched it to the zipline above me from where I placed it.

Hi! I made Make No Wonder and this is the correct answer. Note that this means that you have a small advantage when playing the game with a larger view window (you can adjust the view window in the top right corner). This is more or less intentional (it isn't ideal, but I haven't found a better way to set it up). – shipshape Nov 28 '12 at 2:13
Also, building camps does not affect your ability to place ziplines at all. – shipshape Nov 28 '12 at 2:17
@shipshape Do you mean that you can build a zipline through fog of war, or that ziplines don't require camps to be built? What I meant is that camps clear a large area of fog, making it easier to have clear vision from one platform to another. If you look at building a zipline through fog doesn't seem to work. – Sadly Not Nov 28 '12 at 3:47
@shipshape Also very cool that you made the game! I know some people have said you need to add more to it but I don't think you need to. Right now it has lots of a-ha! moments and feels like an adventure game more than a sandbox game, which is cool. Maybe the game needs more solid closure, but the ending as-is works pretty well. – Sadly Not Nov 28 '12 at 3:47
Yes, you can build ziplines through fog. Ziplines don't require camps, they just require platforms to be attached to. Make No Wonder is definitely more of an exploration / adventure game, I wouldn't call it a sandbox game. I have a lot of stuff I'd still like to add to it, I'm just busy with other stuff right now! Glad you're enjoying it! – shipshape Nov 28 '12 at 5:22

It seems to be two towers that overlap in their vision. I haven't found anyplace to test exactly if that's it exactly, but this works, and this doesn't.

Hi! Your second situation doesn't work because you are standing too far away from the first platform to attach a zipline to it. If you were closer to one of the platforms and the view window was big enough it would work. – shipshape Nov 28 '12 at 2:14
