Re: GU League Player Poll - 20 min matches

I'd say #1. Those last ten minutes are what make the matches exciting for me. I can't say how many matches I've seen or participated in have been decided in the final seconds...playing 20 minute matches would make me have more of a sense of urgency I don't think I'd be comfortable with, in my opinio...

Ricochet Options

I've always thought about this, but perhaps it would be possible to have a parameter for objects to turn ricochet on or off for that one object, rather than the entire map. Something like: box position 0 0 0 rotation 0 size 10 10 10 ricochet 1 end to turn ricochet for that object on or off. This way...

I agree with dexter. Heck, the textures are okay, but the map itself is basically just another random map. I could do that if I wanted to, which is saying something. ;)

If you're registered, type this: /poll ban <name> to start a poll to ban that user. Keep in mind only registered people can vote in the poll. To vote, type: /vote yes or /vote y to vote yes, and /vote no or /vote n to vote no. Before starting a poll, look to see if there's an admin on the server. Te...

I've heard some people's voices, but the only people I've actually met was tadd and his family. That's probably because he's the only person near my house. :)

Well, first off, 4 pictures are usually more than enough, and keeping them as an attachment is a good idea. Number two, if you include the map file, hosters might be more willing to host because they can get a better look at the map by running themselves instead of looking at some..eh, not very good...

Other than mazes on kid's menus in restaurants, who has ever heard of an easy maze. Most of the walls are shoot and/or drive through so a lot of them are only there to add to the confusion.

I would say make a thin border around the base that is drive-through, but not shoot-through, similar to the ones on 'elevators and escalators'.

I think it's a good map. It has many interesting ricochet opportunities. A good place to get some good dodging skills. However, the spawn camping? Not good. You should add something to the base so that doesn't happen. And I think you should make the map smaller. In testing today, many tanks wandered...

Moving around after Death

Today I was on planet mofo, and was playing for a good 30 minutes, until I came across something strange. I was shot, and "died" normally (flew up into the air, had the 'cracked' screen), but when my tank came down, it kept moving forward and to the left. I couldn't control it, but I could still jum...

Wow, that's really cool. It must've taken a long time to make that. I have a TI-84, and although I don't use it for drawing 'pictures' like that much, I know how hard it must've been. I can hardly make a simple line. ;) Nice work.

Spiralzone, under an unregistered callsign.

I think the idea seems a bit too much, and a bit too complicated, but as for the greenish buildings, you can find an old 'battlezone' type server at a-delusion.no-ip.biz:4020.

When looking at a map's 'rating', you might want to round the number to the nearest whole; it doesn't seem necessary to know that person A's map has a 1.1945743 better rating than person B.

You might want to add a death physics driver on the stove for show, but other than that, it looks fine. Not sure how the gameplay will go, but it looks nice.

Another matter to consider is the aesthetics of the podcast. Your voices were a little fuzzy, except for the interview with CBG, which was a nice touch. It would be nice if you two would acknowledge each other's existence more than once in a single episode and give it kind of a "play by play" and "...

What if you could choose if your tank was a bit faster, but couldn't turn as fast, turns faster but can't move as quickly, or is just normal? Sounds like an easier way to get higher scores while using less skill. You could expand that to having different teams have different characteristics, like r...

I like this map a lot. It's both creative and has good gameplay and ricochets. I've played on it some, and it was pretty fun. If someone makes a league out of this, I'd be happy.

Good map.
