What's the condition for detecting a lifted building? Can I force the building to go into land mode or I need to remove & then create?

To detect a lifted building, make a Location on the size of the building, go to its properties, and uncheck all "Ground" boxes (or at least I think what they're named). Then, place it on the building you want to monitor, and run a trigger to detect when the building owned by the corresponding player is present in the location. Since you unchecked all the Ground markers on the location, it should only be able to detect the building if it's in the air. If the building lifts, I think you have no other options but to remove and then recreate the building.

Make a location and uncheck all the ground flags. Keep only the "low air," "medium air," and "high air" flags checked. You will have to remove the building and create a new one if it's lifted; you can't force a landing.

In the event the building could be anywhere, you can just make one location the size of the map with all the Ground boxes unchecked.

KrayZee -- The President of the United States only sending only 1 man equipped with a pistol to rescue his daughter? Then Leon has to deal with midget Napoleon, how can you take that seriously? :P

KrayZee -- The plot in Resident Evil 4? It's just too silly.

Wing Zero -- I played 6 for a bit but wasn't too happy with it. Haven't played another one since then though.

KrayZee -- If Resident Evil 4 is getting a remake, they better make the plot believable. Like actually send an entire team to rescue the President's daughter but the team was ambushed and all equipment were lost. Leon is the only survivor and only kept a handgun. Later he would hitchhike and get picked up. He then asked to be dropped off the nearest town.

RIVE -- The significance is lessened by the probability of future RE titles ignoring either conclusion in favor of a rewrite anyway.
