ULTIMA: falling down is not happening

A bit east of Tenebrae is a small destroyed hut which when stepped into opens up the ground and you fall down to a dungeon below. This doesnt happen with ScuzmmVM.
Ill attach a save right outside the hut.

Step into the hut and the ground will change but you will not fall down.

Thanks. I have noticed the same problem and worked on a good fix for it, but it turns out it's quite hard to fix without introducing other problems.

The "support" calculation is using the avatar's full hit-box, but it should be a smaller box it seems. Unfortunately just modifying that box causes other problems (specifically with stairs) so it kind of cascades. I'll leave this open as I still want to find a good fix for it.

It's not impossible to fall down this hole by the way, just much harder than it should be!
