1. Down-wind main with heavy lifter wing set.
2. Aim: fill downwind plane. Foresting per unit. Laterally also duplicate units.
Lateral duplicated unit fences may be integrated to a mega-kite network.
For high-density use of land space and airspace for constant production.
3. Production wings on loops driving ground-gens during up and down strokes.
Per main, the hung production loop count may be one to very many.
Rung airfoils may be one or more per loop. Adjacent loops may alternate
direction of up or down to optimize production.
4. Option: No main reel at main anchor.
5. Safety lines.
6. Railed or floating holds of far-field anchored ground generator assemblies
to allow wind-direction changes.
7. Land or sea installations. Agriculture may fill land space.
8. Rung wings on loops are crosswinding. Rung wings may be soft or hard airfoils.
9. Lifter wing set could consist of single wing or train or be part of an arch kite system.
10. Ganging harvested energy to replace multiple loop-bottom generators is possible.

A description of this was started in the old forum where it was noted that the rung wings stay during their course crosswinding while facing the wind front without loop slanting downwind as the 1968 Selsam laddermill (non-reversing loop) did. I am refreshing the matter for HLF exploration in this topic.
Aiming here for super density of working wings for efficient use of land and air spaces.
wings move up for a while and then move down; repeat cycles; AoA
reversing control would be needed. Allow long movement for rung wings
by leaving loop lengths without rung wings:
