I just installed it, and my character, parked outside a dungeon, dropped 100 meters to his death :lol: Gotta install this one indoors!

That's interesting... I assume this mod just uses a custom terrain sampler, Uncanny_Valley? I haven't had a chance to play with it yet.

I set things up so that if terrain sampler changes between saves then player should be repositioned at world cell origin. Sounds like that safety feature didn't engage this time. I will have to look into this later.

Yes. Since the mod changes the terrain quite drastically your character can end up spawning high above or below the terrain. I usually open the travel map and simply travel to the location I'm currently at. Doesn't take any time to do so, but will cost you 5 gold if you stay at inns... :D

Loading a save from inside is probably the best way to get around it. But when loading a save from certain interiors, you might still will end up spawning in the air or below ground when exiting. I believe the game sometimes saves your exterior position when saving inside, not sure when or why.

I don't use a custom terrain sampler. I subscribe to OnPromoteTerrainData, then generate my own heightmap and merge it with the existing heightmap. But if I can make my own terrain sampler, then maybe I will take that approach instead, and if that would kick in a safety feature and position the player correctly that would be huge benefit. :D

Yeah, terrain sampler is how this kind of stuff is supposed to be implemented. I built a whole system to integrate terrain mods this way with airbags and everything. :lol:

Let me know if any problems or help needed reworking into a terrain sampler! :)

New version (1.01).

Made it as a custom terrain sampler, which should prevent people from spawning in the air :D Probably a bit faster and also made a few other minor improvements and fixes

See first post for the latest version!
