Right now, if you flap (spacebar) during the dive animation, you lock yourself into nosediving towards the ground. If you misjudge your currently altitude press this at the wrong time, you crash, and the flight is ruined. I think it would make for some cool close call situations if you were able to recover or break out of this animation somehow, and level out or swoop up just before you hit the ground to avoid this sort of problem. I think it would make using the griffon mount feel a lot better, too. Right now the animations feel very delayed; the griffon doesn't really react to the keys I press right away, even with 30 ping, compared to the satisfying feeling of pressing a button and something happening right away.
