Dev build/Linux: one-way staircases [game-data related]

Post by pango » Mon Apr 22, 2019 11:31 pm

That's an issue I've known for a while, but I don't remember if I already reported it...
In some buildings, they're stairs you can only climb up. Once on the first story, the stairs are hidden below the floor.

Thanks Pango. This is another case where bad geometry layouts stick the player controller. That staircase is actually sealed from above, so even if you teleport past it you can't go back down again. My current "automatic unstick" process can't work with this problem. In this case, patching the geometry is the best solution. I'll create a resolution when I can.

Workaround: anyone stuck in a house with this issue should use "trans_out" from console to exit house again.

Wayrest Mansion Traps You on Upper Floor

Post by Atropal » Mon Mar 09, 2020 12:41 am

The very large green house in Wayrest (The biggest one that I've seen for sale at something like 1.1 million) traps you on the top floor if you enter by one of its many doors. This is the tetris-ey Z-shapedish one, there's a few of them, to be as specific as possible without know the name of the interior cell, there's one directly East of the Dirty Priest (a tavern in Wayrest) just past a tiny hut.
When you go up the staircase you are shunted up through a bugged floor which closes behind you. The bugged portion of the house also vibrates similarly to how the wall in that particular mages guild glitches. The only way out is with magic, trans_out or a reload. Anyways, hope this was helpful... I should have hired a home inspector before making such a large purchase, my bad. ;)

Welcome to the forums Atropal!

It looks like a duplicate, or a close variant, of this report: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=2028
(which for some reason is marked as resolved)
