Summary0004948: Improve ladder/rope slide (no fall-damage + sound)
DescriptionIn the current implementation, the ladder/rope sliding is as good as useless because you can get fall damage. A nice improvement would be to give those slides a non-damaging terminal velocity.

Furthermore, a slide soundeffect would be nice.

Rev. 7949:
If you press and hold crouch while facing towards a climbable surface, the player will graciously slide down at a non-damaging terminal velocity. If facing the other side, the player will detach, just like before.

This feature has not been added to ropes due to their swinging behavior: A slide down is not easily done and requires completely different physics.

Rev. 7952 adds a sliding sound to the ladder slide. It can be specialized to the surface type just like the actual climbing sounds in tdm_player_thief.def, e.g.:

Currently, there is only snd_climb_slide_default due to the lack of appropriate sounds.
