Re: Voting

How about we just say that if you abstain from the poll, you don't count? A real voting system works like this: 10 people vote yes, 5 people vote no, 10 abstain. The final answer is "yes". 10 > 5 The voting system of bzflag works like this: 10 people vote yes, 5 people vote no, 10 abstain. The final...

Re: read this it's got to be the coolest idea for a flag ever

Yay...Campers now don't even have to try! *Tank appears* *Tank is destroyed* *Tank appears* *Tank is destroyed* *Tank appears* *Tank is destroyed* *Tank appears* *Tank is destroyed*

As you can see, this is a bad idea. No flag combos.

Re: Bad Flags

It wouldn't be hat hard to do. It would simply take a few lines of code adjusting _tankSpeed_ and similar factors (if there is a seperate one for turning rate).

Your tank moves and turns at half speed.
Not much different that the "Momentum" flag.
How is that so? Momentum allows you to hit full speed, while SLow tank would not have momentum, but would halve your speed and turning radius.

Re: Looking for the best mouse for BZflag

I use the Logitech G5 Mouse. I still need to install the software for Macro's (If I ever find it :D )

I also use 4 1.7g and 2 4.5g weights to give it better control.

Strange Hack

I've noticed a strange hack that a player has been using under several aliases (not naming names right now, unless an admin or someone says it's okay to.) It involves somehow bypassing a spam filter and sending a gargantuan quantity of text or just blank lines, basically wiping out a player's chatti...

Bad Flags

I've never really seen many bad flags suggested here, so I thought of two. 1) Slow reload flag: Your shots take longer than usual to reload. 2) Slow shot flag: Your shots move slower than usual. 3) Random shoot speed flag: Your shots fire at random speeds. Obviously, #1 is only really bad on low-sho...

Re: A Few Ideas.

Maybe this could be used for a different type of game? If you've ever played that dodgeball server, you seem to have unlimited dodgeballs in your tank. Solution? Use the Shoot flag to give the player a "ball," then shoot it. The flag would drop and vanish, reappearing in the depot. That's all I can ...

Re: A Few Ideas.

With the radar flag...it would be really overpowed. Maybe you could make it a "sonar" flag. It gives you ONLY the general location of tanks (offset by 10 bzunits, perhaps?) They would be grey, so you have no idea which team they are on. It would also be a maximum of short or medium range.

Forum Login Problems

I'm having some serious trouble with logging in. Sometimes, I enter it properly, but I have to do it again. Other times, I log out when I enter a forum right after logging in, and sometimes it randomly logs me out (even though I was active just 10 seconds ago.) It's really getting annoying. Ideas?

Suggestion to assist newbies.

I was thinking about how frustrating it can be to be a newbie and to be constantly blown up by more experienced players. If players got a free super flag if they had a ratio of wins to losses of 1:3 or higher (1:3 would give you things like V, A. 1:4 would be like CL, ST, T, or N. 1:5 could be L or ...

I would still want Shockwaves to work normally And for those uber-smashes, they would be controlled mainly by the fact they would only respawn occasionally (maybe when a team is capped three times in a row, the flag appears on their base, so you could get back some lost ground.) And if Planet Mofo o...

I am in the early planning stages of a new map: The Silo. The focus is a large silo which has a large rocket launcher.

Distraction- I mean for the CA flag that the bullet would be avoidable (maybe just regular speed) Okay, so the H flag should make enemies appear to be small, big, cloaked, or stealthed, even if they don't have the flag. It would be a random affliction, which applies to all tanks (every tank will app...

4. Bomber - A couple flags have been proposed using this idea, and they have been shot down. The closest you can get to splash damage in this game is with shockwaveDeath. Lol nice word choice: "Shot Down" Anyways, I agree with you. Heck, I had came up with a shockwaveshot flag, which became hopeless.

Hmmm...this does sound too complex. However, maybe if you just froze for five seconds, then couldn't fire, then died five seconds later, that would be better.

I think this is what he means...

If you are shot, your treads go splat

If you get shot again, your turret goes splat

Then, maybe after five seconds you go KABLAMMO!!!

Maybe even add damage to the blast (hehe)

Now that sounds cool. Of course, would you have to simultaneously host many servers? Lag

Would tanks have to load the next server? Lag.

What if someone went back and forth? Lag

It's a little confusing.

To take screenshots, press prt scr on your keyboard, then open paint and paste it in. If you can host it locally, simply press F5 to take one. If that doesn't work, I dunno what to do.

Anyways, it looks like you could use some more objects, but make them small.

I'm good at getting behind someone with ST, or sniping them with it from 150 bzunits! lol. I also like G, L, and GM. It is quite fun to blow someone up who is unstoppable with a corner shot using a GM :D .
