0005897: Flows no longer push creatures
I emptied an entire lake through a single hole in which the miner was standing. After the lake emptied, he was still there.
No tags attached.

Could this be a fix for dwarves pathing over the edge of waterfalls? I saw a recent complaint about that from the forums. Since the water tends to be shallow at the lip of a waterfall, dwarves try to walk there and get pushed over by the flow. It was potentially devastating.

Can anyone else corroborate this? Adv Mode testing would be helpful too.

Flowing water definitely still pushes stuff around in Arena mode in both control modes - I spawned a creature at the top of the waterfall and it was quickly pushed over the edge whether I was controlling it or not.

It could be that pressurized water doesn't do anything, while normal flowing does. In which case I seem to remember this issue being older.

I think rivers can still push at 7/7, but yeah, with other bodies of water there are oddities: http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=25173.0 [^]

Please reopen this if you can confirm that there's something else going on.
