I was attempting to recreate a previous video, but smoother, when my failure turned into a classic THB exploit: There is No Spoon. I'm not sure if this actually counts as a legitimate attempt, but either way, I'm proud of it.

Do you know which object the target was standing on before it got yanked out from under him? I'm skeptical about this being a TINS because Edward didn't put any horizontal distance on the target. Vertical distance is unlikely to result in objects being culled. This looks more like a slip & fall, where the target tries to follow you but accidentally falls to his death. I'm not familiar with the mission so I could be mistaken.

You understand, of course, that we've got about as much chance of winning this as a one-legged man has got of winning an ass-kicking contest.

It wasn't a mission. More of a free roaming warehouse location. I wasn't exactly clear on what happened either, but my first assumption was that I just ran away far enough to enable a TINS. That's why I'm presenting it here.

I've got one word for you: radius.

TINS - There Is No Spoon - is an exploit TheHiddenBlade first discovered in ACII, I believe. Most of the time, if you go too far from a target, the game will Desynchronize you. However, sometimes, you can go as far as you want without Desynching. If we can trigger a state like this, then turn the camera away from the target so they're not in view, then keep running, this causes something cool;

Eventually, the game de-renders the ground under the target, and because most characters dropped into water can't swim - and because Assassin's Creed maps are full of water under the geometry - this kills them. There Is No Ground ;]

I remember watching a video by one of you guys where you did this to the Baron de Valois in ACB. I had no idea what was going on and had to watch it several times before I understood that the ground under his feet was removed. I thought that was so clever. Still do.
