0005970: Creature goes through solid wall when at high speed
In the arena, if you are going fast enough and hit a wall in just the right place, you can go through a solid wall.

It looked like I had to go fast enough that my cart was alternating between traveling 2 and 3 tiles per single step. I'm not quite sure if this speed would normally be attainable in dwarf mode.
Enter the arena, spawn creatures with a mine-cart on the southern end the the path over the water (I used cats and platinum mine-carts, not sure if it makes a difference), accelerate to the north as much as possible. After 3-4 mine-carts stack up against the wall inside the lava area pyramid, you should fly through the pyramid's walls and land on the outside (or, more likely, your corpse will).
I uploaded a video of this, as you cannot save in the arena.

You can just skip to the halfway point, the first half is just me failing to hit the wall just right. The video is very jerky, I'm not sure why.
No tags attached.
