Some sources say that TUslide is for snakemen,
some sources say that TUslide is for moving diagonally

I have found tiles in the arctic maps where water is:

TUWalk=255
TUSlide=4
TUFly=255

Maybe slide & fly are switched during a bug or so and
so we can fly over water but not walk over it i guess?!

If anybody has info on this, please do!!!

Ok, i have figured it out,
it is like it says in the documentation on ufopaedia.org

Mcd offsets:
--------------
39: Time units used to walk across the tile. (255 means unpassable)
40: Time units used to fly across the tile. (255 means unpassable)
41: Time units used to slide across the tile. (255 means unpassable) (Used for aliens like Snakemen and Silacoids. Tanks?)

For [39] to [41], values range from 0 to 8, or are 255. There are only a few places where they are not all the same ([39]=[40]=[41]):

Walk Fly Slide File Description
2 0 2 Avenger Middle ramp object (but you can't fly there because they're on the ground anyway, no? - MTR)
255 255 4 Arctic Water pools in ice (18 ground MCDs) (huh! like water snakes, eh? -MTR)
2 2 0 U_Base Death objects for large round containers in alien bases (four quadrants)... thus, their remnants don't add TUs for sliders
1 1 0 U_Base Little green plant objects found on black "base garden" flooring
2 2 0 Urbits Two death objects (splinters on ground) for city's tall green picket fence (one is a North-wall fence, the other is a West-wall fence)


For me it seems more logic that fly & slide are swapped,
coz it's logic to fly over water, and impassable to slide!!
Anyway, i tested this in the real game and it is like this,
you CANNOT fly over water!!! but snakemen can ....strange!!
Maybe this is a bug or something??


Oh yeah also for the TU calculation:

- TimeUnit calculation (official)
going to tile: gnd+content + eventual broken walls (mostly 2tus)
going diagonally: cost * 1.5
