0.10.17 - Riding capsule stuck on graveyard gate geometry

Post by Dubiousintent » Wed Jan 01, 2020 6:30 am

Tried to enter the Wicksley Graveyard (Daggerfall Province; an hour West of the Woodwing Graveyard) while riding a wagon. This has a "gateway arch" with a pair of doors that are open about 45 degrees towards each other. Got hung in the middle of the arch and had to use the console to get out.

Problem confirmed, definitely a bug.

In classic, from the outside you'd be blocked by the doors, but even from the inside you'll hit the arch and not get stuck inside its upper part.


PS. After more testing, this case defeats unstick mechanism safety checks

Does checking for collisions along some path look like over-engineering?
I see no safer way to prevent such glitches...
