This is the article of a development build of Skyscraper Simulator.
It has been confirmed a good-faith contribution to the Skyscraper wiki.

The main recent changes are a fix for a very common crash (previously if you set a floor ID to something like T, and the image file ButtonT.jpg didn't exist, the simulator would crash), and also support for recalculating collision detection with moving objects (which means you can ride on the tops of moving elevators, etc). That second thing seemed to be easy at first to do, but it threw the camera collider collision detection off sync (after the change, if you were riding an elevator, you'd eventually fall right through the floor). That is because the elevator position was being updated faster than the camera's position (for time-based synchronization); both are now updated at the same time.
