0005194: Some sewer grates have ramps underneath
When moving around in a larger town, I found a seemingly impassible floor grate drain in the middle of the street. I tried to move over other grates, but that worked fine. I then tried alt-moving over the grate, which gave me the possibility to "Move to Rock Block Downward Slope (South/Air)". I did so, and that allowed me to move over the grate, but it also made the whole area dark, as if I was in a dungeon, even though I was above ground in the middle of the day.

I think the problem is caused by this grate being on top of a ramp, while the other, normal ones are above ordinary open space. I haven't found any other grates with ramps below them to test this on, however.

The grate is directly south of the character when you load the file. If alt-moving doesn't work immediately, move a few steps before trying again.

You also can't breathe through grates with ramps under them.

edit: not positive about this, might just be weird drowning stuff.

the ramps are ment to be in places where theres walkways to the sides, so you can just step out of it, but they end up being everywhere instead.
