Occasionally I'd like to continue moving past the jump pads without taking advantage of the jump effect. They throw you so high, that if you fall back down to the level you began on, you take a pretty substantial cut of fall damage.
In the image below, for example, I'd just like to get to the shrine. There are tons of other situations where all I want to do is continue moving along in my search for the teleporter, and jump pads often cause me to get hurt.
Is there a way around this?
