0000890: Directly controlled flying creatures are forced to use ramps
When in direct control of a flying creature (tested in Arena Mode), any move onto a down-ramp will force the creature onto the lower up-ramp tile, regardless of which direction the creature was going.

This also makes it impossible to "lift off" from an up-ramp tile.
Take direct ("adventure mode") control of a flying creature, fly into the air near a ramp (so that you are on the same level as the down-ramp tile), and move onto the down-ramp tile.

Secondary: Move onto an up-ramp tile and use "<" to attempt to fly into the air.

Wasn't entirely sure what to categorize this under, but since I've only been able to reproduce it in direct-control mode, I figured that "Adventure Mode: Movement" was probably as close as I was going to get.
