Even if you did find a ventilation shaft big enough to crawl through, it would still be a terrible idea. First, they're made of hollow metal. Banging around in there would be incredibly loud. Second, they're not really designed to hold up the weight of an adult human. You'd just destroy it if you ever put your weight in a spot that wasn't supported, and you can't see where it's supported from the inside.

Also, they're absolutely full of self-tapping screws.

I think I just figured out a way to see where they are supported from on the inside...

Sadly no. The screws hold the sections they're made of together. The supports don't always have to be on those joints though. They tend to be. It's better to support a joint when you can, they just don't always have to be.

I played a game recently where you had drones that could use shafts. It made a lot more sense.

Yeah, it would still be loud, but that does solve the other problems.

  1. Be civil and nice.
  2. Try not to excessively repost, as a rule of thumb, wait at least 2 months to do it if you have to.
