The determining factor for getting the Fly a Pig Off a Cliff achievement seems to be that the pig takes damage on landing. Is this actually the case? I'm wondering whether landing the pig in water would work, event though it won't take damage.

If (achievement IFF damage) then no achievement if no damage. You've already answered the question. Do you mean to be asking whether damage is actually required? – Matthew Read Apr 28 '11 at 18:14
As I said, seems to be, I don't know how the actual mechanism works. – fredley Apr 28 '11 at 18:16
Edited to ask about the mechanism. – Matthew Read Apr 28 '11 at 18:19
try it, i suppose that's quicker then asking here – Sir Ksilem Apr 28 '11 at 19:12

I've just tested this, and the answer is no, the poor piggy must get hurt. :( a little cheating proof that nothing good ever comes from trying to appease PETA

awww! poor piggy! – chandsie Apr 28 '11 at 23:53
Won't that most likely kill the pig? Just like when Spider-jockeys fall and the spider dies, cushioning the skeleton's fall – Jeffrey Lin Oct 30 '12 at 19:41
@JefreyLin: If it lands in deep enough water, that cushions it so it doesn't get hurt at all. Normally it might. It only has to be three high to get the achievement though. – Ullallulloo Oct 30 '12 at 20:31
