Issue description
I noticed that when throwing objects onto walls, they sometime "get stuck" to them, like in the screenshot. At other times, the objects simply go through the wall for a certain distance (can still be picked up).

Going through walls only seems to happen when throwing stuff at the corners,
Steps to reproduce this issue
- Start game - Pick up mushroom from the ground, or the rock near the cell - Throw at a wall

I think it was like this in vanilla Arx Fatalis as well. Anyway, I find it pretty amusing, i could just stick things to the wall all day :D I'm not even sure if it should get fixed if it doesn't interfere with anything else.

EDIT: yes, if was like that, see the last screenshot: http://it-he.org/arx_diry.htm

I think it was a bit less visible in vanilla Arx. I can't remember sticking anything to walls myself. It's still a defect though, and has to be fixed smileys/2.png

Of course it's a bug, but it's an amusing bug. I like to simply imagine that this is how physics in the world of Arx work, instead of following our rules ;) I'll leave the decision to the dev team and I won't argue, I just wanted to point out that it's kind of nice to see a game that isn't all polished up and has harmless glitches. There is an entire episode of AVGN dedicated to glitches and how people will intentianally seek them just to mess with the game: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdWRTleizFU I remember in Super Mario Bros. I onced ended up with a tiny Fire Mario (normally Fire Mario is always tall). i don't know how exactly, but I think it was because i defeated Bowser while he also touched me, causing me to revert to tiny Mario, but the sprite still be stuck with the tall Mario size. Then when i picked up a mushromm the game rgistered me as Super Mario, but the sprite became tiny Mario. When i picked up the fire flower I turned into tiny Fire Mario. You would never see this type of glitch in a modern game.
