Tux+slope+down key=

I.e. implement sliding like in SMB3/SMW, preferably with a sprite that makes Tux slide on his belly.

sinisa3games already made some sliding sprites.
You can find them here: https://forum.freegamedev.net/viewtopic.php?f=67&t=7800

This idea came up before. I remember attempting to implement it. However, nobody who is currently on the developer team has a good understanding of SuperTux' physics code and this is what's necessary to properly make adjustments so this works.

Maybe we could just throw physic code away and replace it with Box2D for all stuff that needs collision/gravity? Not only this would allow for more complex interactions, but it'll be easier to work with as you would only specify masses and forces applied to things (rigid bodies) and likely won't need to change actual physics code.

Of course replacing the physics code is a tall order that will probably break a lot of things before appropriate values for mass and forces will be found that are roughly equivalent to the current physics, but if seriously no one understands the code and the guy who wrote it isn't coming back, it's the only solution to have successful long-term development.

Just to be clear: There's nothing wrong with the current physics, but if they stand in the way of new features...

A different suggestion:
A possibility to allow a script trigger to run only once. I know, that can be done with an if-statement, but it would be easier to have a "Run only once" checkbox.

That seems easy enough.
