0011316: PROPEL_UNIT interaction does not work on creatures that are being counted as projectiles
When a creature is falling, jumping, or has previously been hit by a PROPEL_UNIT interaction, using PROPEL_UNIT on these creatures does nothing, rather than altering their direction of motion.
Arena mode (with creatures that can use PROPEL_UNIT):
1. Place creature with PROPEL_UNIT on top edge of a tower
2. place a second creature a short distance away, 1 z-level above.
3. take control of the first creature
4. advance time one "." so that the second creature begins to fall
5. hit the second creature with the PROPEL_UNIT interaction
6. nothing happens; creature continues to fall downwards in a straight line
Uncertain if it's a bug, an oversight, or limitation of the way it's coded in. I'm leaning towards the latter, but I figured I might as well report it anyway, just in case.
No tags attached.
