Stop just one force

I’m making a gravity lift and want to stop players at the top. however when I use stop force (stop all forces it is too abrupt. this seems lie t should be obvious but how do I stop only one force?

You could apply a force in the reverse direction to the lift, but at 50%(or less) of the magnitude. Do this 5-10 times, and then use stop force. That should slow it down reasonably gradually and smoothly.

Would i need to do a timer? so it does it over time.

also i do a force toward an object and since the angle becomes different the forces won’t quite line up.

You could do, but I’d look at getting it working per frame first, and then using a timer.

On a platform? Ok, then maybe getting the linear velocity of the platform and using the negative value of that to apply a force?
