The following code can be used to prevent the player from either receiving fall damage, or from hitting 'terminal velocity', which results in death upon hitting the ground.

You'll need a single gamevar to hold the value of falling_counter.

gamevar fallcounter 0 1

Inside the APLAYER actor, use the following code to restrict the falling counter to prevent falling deaths:

getplayer[THISACTOR].falling_counter fallcounter
ifvarg fallcounter 61
{
  setvar fallcounter 61 // any value under 62 is non-fatal
  setactor[THISACTOR].jumping_counter fallcounter
}

To prevent ANY fall damage to the player, change it to the following

getplayer[THISACTOR].falling_counter fallcounter
ifvarg fallcounter 8
{
  setvar fallcounter 8 // any value under 9 does no damage
  setactor[THISACTOR].jumping_counter fallcounter
}
