Ladders not grabbing

Hi, I'm getting some very inconsistent behavior with ladders. Here's a video with a custom one, the prefab one, and one copied from a3_distillery:

It looks like that specific ladder only engages when you pull the rung towards you at right about the max distance point. The right side of the ladder engages immediately, and the left side of the ladder engages at the min distance point. The prefab ladder in the article doesn't work at all. And the ladder I'm trying to create (a grab point on the edge of a 64x64x64 block) has only worked once and then never again. What are the criteria for working ladders in HL:A? --Ott (talk) 20:08, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

Nevermind, I discovered that climbing mode doesn't actually engage until your hand leaves the trigger. Mine was way too big. --Ott (talk) 21:09, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
