I have also coded the flying stuff for players, but haven't submitted
it because it isn't complete yet.  All it does at the moment is :

o - If a player cannot fly, he can walk any direction but 'up' into
an air room, and then he automatically falls. (cliffs, pits, etc)
o - If a player is in a flying room and the flying spell wears off,
he falls
o - If a player is in a flying room and the object that he is using
to fly with is removed or lost, he falls
o - If a player with a pet flies into a flying room and the pet
cannot fly, the pet falls
o - If you fall into an air room, you fall again, this repeats

This is all fine, except for the last bit, the player cannot
interrupt the fall with a command such as recall, or featherfall,

Anyone any idea how my code can wait a short time before continuing
the drop?  It would complete this code, and I can then work on the
object falling and the underwater bit as well.
