Re: Returning to BzFlag since 2000

if you are the freelancer i remember being a regular on hepcat (pillbox & babel/overlord), you have been absent since 15 years at the most. if not, welcome back in any case. i hope bz will grow on you again.

Re: valentino.hepcat.org Pillbox CTF has returned

they say you can't forget your first map. pillbox was mine. at times there were huge armies of green and red tanks fighting each other. neither the chaos nor the fun was forgettable. then came the fantastic overlord/babel rotation. two great maps, jumping, power flags, even more fun. i hope we can t...

Re: BZFlag Memories

urban jungle, mystic valley, viper's and hix have been duly honored. great job you both. looking forward to more eye candy maps by you, like the shire or pirates of the raging seas. now that louman, anomaly, spazzy, jefenry, dutchrai are all gone, the responsibility seems to lie on your shoulders. :...

Re: Piney Grove Crossroads

beside the clay hills resemblence, this map reminded me of the good times when louman, jefenry, army of one, anomaly a.o. were actively making maps. looking forward to playing on it. edit: very nice game play. fast and furious but it still gives you opportunities to camp and rest on the hills. sw tr...

Re: Pro Flag : Progressive Flag Mode 2.0

sounds good. when you are going for your better flag, i assume you'll have an idea as to where that bunch is situated.

Re: Pro Flag : Progressive Flag Mode 2.0

so this is kind of like the reverse of "New Gun-Games at Planet-MoFo Passion", where you started with the best flag and could only win with a trigger-unhappy sr. that was suw33t fun, i'm sure this will be too.

Re: Abusive players...

the guy's from south america. that would explain his lag and if he's not on a perfect connection, also the sporadic jitter (happens to the best of us). those can always give the false impression of cheating, especially when the lag difference between two players is high. as to behavior, he's quite t...

Re: Abusive players...

maybe that's his reaction to being called a cheater by you on a regular basis. of course i'm not saying that's acceptable behavior and i don't know if he's actually cheating, though having played against him numerous times, i haven't detected any kind of "overt" cheating.

Re: bzflag.allejo.io servers

sounds legit. while i personally liked the funky randomness effect, many people were just getting perplexed or over-possessive of their ex-mines. BD on clay hills for one would be a welcome addition. there seem to be a whole lot of useless flags there.

nice survey zehra. 1. no. the level of activity is almost sufficient for my liking. i wouldn't want to see hordes of new players joining on a regular basis, disrupting the game for the regulars by various means. not that it's ever gonna happen, thankfully. 2. heh NO! 3. too many individual maps to c...

Re: A few thoughts on server policies

I have played this game for over 10 years, and I have never been kicked or banned for any reason other than a bad internet connection. Not one time.

Re: A few thoughts on server policies

while i agree with war pig about the general unnecessity of extremely elaborate rules and regulations, i see one particular issue that requires a higher level of server-side standardization: the language policy. while cheating, mean behavior, spamming etc are more or less treated suitably and consis...

Re: Protected Mode
