i'm currently hunting a total unexpected bug, which occours only on a testmap and only if you load fresh from menu a saved game the first time, but see yourself what happens :D
download in source quality:
www.reflex-studio.com/clearing/video/devkid_physicbug.avi 110mb

it seems it happens ONLY to enemy AI, not to objects, not to player, and its caused by original crytek savegame loader.
because the ingame save game loader works, there are good chances that i can find and eleminate this bug, but this is still only a strong hope :D

At first, I was wondering what kind of bug will be there, and when I have seen it, I literally launch for a 10 seconds at least. When you manage to fix it you can add some fun mode or something like that which will include this funny bug.

wow, finally i found the bug: cryengine load a mass of 1kg for enemies instead the original given 80kg or more for a "grunt".
was very very hard to find and i needed subroutines for finding which i needed back in time weeks and months to develeope for, but finally there are inside the devkid and speed up such bugfinding end eleminating by factor 1000 or more :D

so, basically inserting this as funmode is now totally easy, just have to re-init them with a new weight :D

I have an idea for the name: Kangaroo Grunts.

P.S. I'd suggest also setting new Density, if possible.

what did you mean with "new Density" exactly ?

Spawn a "Simple Entity", any Simple Entity. Now if you see the parameters, you should notice "Mass" and "Density".

I was experimenting, and it seems that Density affects physics, and since it can be 1, the grunts could float on the water.

i have given some physical parameters for living entities, but not the whole script with constructor, currently it seems to work, but i still doesn't know why some AI (not all types) have wrong values. i currently restore mass, height, eyeheight, sphereheight, radius and all two bulletimpactparams.
but there are way more, like animationspeed behaviors and blendingtimes, which also belong to the constructor table, but those seemed to work.

You should add it as a "easter egg cheat" instead, together with the chucknorristatic force! (just like moon gravity in those old Tony hawks games)
