A sheet rope is an item used to travel multiple stories.

Usage

The sheet rope allows the player to descend out a window or over a fence to ground level without taking any fall damage, using 2 sheet rope per level rappelled down with a hammer and 1 nail to secure it

The player can climb up the sheet rope as well, making it an alternate entrance to your base as well as an exit. However, entering/exiting a structure by this method can be very time-consuming.

2 sheet ropes can be used to stack 2-4 logs to make them lighter and easier to transport. Unstacking the logs will give the player back the sheet ropes used.

Tips

The sheet rope is one of the most useful tools in Project Zomboid; allowing the player to build a fort with only sheet rope as an entrance, meaning zombies can't climb them and get into the fortification. Instead, they have to bash down nearby doors and windows in order to enter a fort. Furthermore, they can be used as backup exits to escape in case the fort is breached. Adding on to this, stairs can be destroyed with a sledgehammer or deconstructed if player-made, rendering the upper floor(s) inaccessible to zombies. Be careful though, as zombies are capable of destroying the sheet ropes, so making sure there is more than one is a good idea. If the player attempts to climb up a sheet rope with zombies following close behind, they can destroy it while the player is climbing it, so some distance should be gained before attempting to make an escape. A sheet rope will not disappear or be destroyed if the window is closed.

Crafting

Sheet ropes are crafted from sheets or clothing.
