jetpack + ledge grab looks odd

ledge grab with a jetpack running looks a bit odd, especially with the role-up animation if you pull up onto the edge (jetpackers really shouldn't do a summersault that close to the ground...)

It would probably be good to either disable ledge grab with jetpack, or better yet shut jetpack off when you grab the ledge.

Or you could let jetpackers grab onto the ledge, and push themselves away from it for a bit of height and speed away from the wall.

Disabling ledge grab while jetpacking seems like the most logical solution.

Point taken. I'll look into turning off the jetpacks whenever a player goes into a ledgegrab.

I wouldn't like that though. That would hinder jetpacking as you could be trying to get away but get hooked up on a ledge.

You should make ledge grab disabled while jetpacking because it would be more logical and easier on the person "jetting".

Yep, I do too. Grabing a ledge every time you fly close to one is just plain annoying and can cost you your life. Best to just disable it with jetpack.
