Summary0006068: Minecarts falling onto a floor injure creatures directly below the floor
DescriptionBasically, the creature under the tile on which the minecart lands behaves as if it had collided with the minecart - it gets propelled through the air, skids on the ground, the typical minecart injuries.
This only works with minecarts, other landing objects are harmless.
I also tried to apply Newton's cradle, i.e. a minecart landing on a minecart positioned on a floor over a creature - the creature remained unharmed.

I think the problem is that minecarts handle vertical collisions like horizontal collisions and fail to check if there is anything between the minecart and the creature.
Steps To ReproduceDig a shaft, 3 z-levels deep, one tile wide.
Build a floor in the middle and pasture an animal at the bottom like so.
__ __

Drop a minecart into the shaft. Even though it lands on the floor, the animal gets injured.

I don't think those are related. This bug occurs with falls of any height - the minecart doesn't teleport through the floor, it just hits the creature through the floor.

I just had a random stray dog killed by this. The dog was in a dining room. The minecart dropshaft ends with a ramp on the level above. The cart itself, full of ore and flux, made it successfully to its final stop.

There's at least a thematic relationship between this and 0005996, which is good enough for me.
