The A.I. is already somehow bad and you want to add a level change to it?
The A.I. would revolt and Elon Musk would be saying: I told you so lol.
Elevators yes, for us, not the vehicles cause the jump pads suck. In fact, I think the jump pads would be much better if we had a slider in the interface of them to adjust the power of the plaform, much like when we do the overclock.
I see the jump pads as a "quick fix" by the devs to go up faster. Not really a nice solution. They are fun, but not "efficient". ;)
