This has happened to me enough times that it's gone from a little pet peeve to provoking the following response on a regular basis:



What is this horrible, terrifying, MONSTROUSLY CRIPPLING AND ALL OVER NASTY error?!

My damned captain can't fit through the freaking door.

So listen up, because I'm only gonna say this once.

When you're making an interior, door, etc. in GA, test the adventure with the world's largest captain. If he can't fit, somebody is going to be miffed in the future.

Thank you for your time.

I'll be sure to remember that. I always make the doors too big, just in case. I usually use teleport doors, anyway.

My problem is my captain being too small.

Yes.

also when stairs are just one inch to high and you don't have fly.

That's why it's good to put an invisible ramp when you're making stairs, just to make sure that all captains can go up it. I usually use invisible crates.

Hmm, ramps? Never thought of that. Good idea.


Most of my adventures have locked Captains, as they follow the stories of my characters, so I don't think I'll have to worry about this too much.

The main issue with that is you're basically telling the players "Who cares about you wanting to play as any size captain, I'm going to be an ass and make it so it fits MY restrictions."

There needs to be a balance between the adventure-maker and the player. The best adventures are the ones that can accommodate a large variety of captains. Having stupid stuff like doors made for medium sized captains only is the exact opposite of that.

I think it's the adventure creator's responsibility to make changes, not the player.

Plus, how does giving up getting a crap-load of points for your current captain who you have spent weeks playing as and creating a new one, from scratch just to play an adventure and not get any points towards the original captain's progress sound to you?

Using invisible jump-pads is the way to go. Don't ever use stairs without them - they may look nice, but are no way to travel.
