Dev build/Linux: crushed by cave ceiling [RESOLVED]

Post by pango » Wed Feb 06, 2019 12:43 am

If you push your movement upward in the corner just above, you can be crushed.
In his video, Steep got crushed in a corner of the same cave room while Advanced climbing was forcing the climbing of the wall below the deadly corner, but I couldn't reproduce it (maybe I didn't try hard enough).

I thought you could only be crushed by moving objects now?

If we could find an exact spot to reproduce every time, I'll be able to work out why the static check doesn't prevent crushing death in this case. There's likely some edge case or extra condition I did not consider here.

Can you tell me which dungeon this is happening in? If it's one of those cave sections with the winding staircase that runs up close to the ceiling, there is at least 1 dungeon block that has a moving action object there that is supposed to push you off the ledge IIRC.

I have a savegame attached to the bottom of this post. This room is a good place to test collision/geometry stuff because there are all kinds of places to squeeze into. If you crouch and go behind the chair with the claw (or the stretcher table), then move forward into the back of it, you will suffer a crush death.

Also, if you hop on the chair and try to jump and hit your head on the ceiling, 20% of the time you will trigger a bug that puts your character into crouch mode even though you didn't toggle it yourself. You can uncrouch out of it, however.

I'm not sure that's the one, that's a cave room in Ruins of The Ashhouse Farmstead, Daggerfall that looks like this:

Yeah there is one, right where that loot pile is at the top if that's where he died (it's above the ceiling). It's this triangle object here. That loot pile in your picture is almost directly in front of it.

I'm not sure where exactly the death occurred or if it's even possible to collide with that under normal circumstances, so it might not actually be relevant at all, just thought it was worth mentioning as it might be a possible explanation.

This one should be resolved now after refinements to crush handling.
