Add the following to the end of the last paragraph of the rule Building Contents:

If at any time more than half of the Blocks in the Building are Weakened then its Stability is immediately set to 0.

I’m…not exactly sure it really works in the ruleset as worded?

Why’s that?

“If Building Stability is 0 or lower, or if any Level of the Building below the topmost Level consists entirely of Empty Blocks, then the Building is Collapsed; otherwise, the Building is not Collapsed.” means that you could argue the building both is and isn’t collapsed at the same time

Does this work?

We start with 18 non-Empty Blocks in the Building. A triple Earthquake modifies 9 (exactly half) of the Blocks into the Weakened state. That is, without: 1. People removing Weakened Blocks during their Build actions; 2. Specialists replacing Weakened Blocks or adding Blocks; 3. The Threats queue having non-Earthquake disasters.

Even with the current funny Threats queue, it would currently take at least two weeks to activate this Rule on a new Building, because “more than half” is initially at least 10.
