I just played this map for the first time today, and it was really fun! There were 10 people on each team at one point and I really enjoyed the visual aspect of it. I can tell you put a lot of effort into it! :) I especially like the vents that lead into the "Dr. Strangelove" room. Very creative! Th...

What do you think is the most fun map to play at?

I've been playing BZFlag for about 2 years now, and I've always liked the same maps: The Two Tanks, most of LouMan's maps (especially Mystic Valley), and a few others that I can't think of right now. So I want some variety in my BZFlag playing by now, and I wanted to know which servers you recommend...

Lately, I've been at the servers hosted by oOo (you can search his name in the server list by pressing the / button) which require you to jump across platforms and capture your own flag. It has helped me cut down on my tendency to be careless :roll: and, plus, it's also really fun. I would also reco...

In no-radar or extremely-small-radar maps, my strategy is to stay near a wall or corner, or if that's not practical, stay near a cluster of buildings (or in Mystic Valley's case, brush and vegetation). Also, if you pick up Cloaking, for the sake of God, DON'T DROP IT! With no radar AND Cloaking, you...

Hmm... It actually, for some reason, took me a while to think of this, but I'm gonna have to say my best flag is Wings! Yay! I like to pretend to an enemy that I don't have wings, so I almost hit the ground, and then I jump again and they're like "WHAT???" :D And then I like to taunt them by flying ...

I went to this map a while ago, and there were like 8 people there. It was really fun! :D I liked the visual aspect of it, and it was fun to just look around at the map for a while. The little details really added to the "coolness" of the map. Although I favor maps where there are plenty of places t...

I'm a little confused. What do you mean by "directing" the bzrobots? Would the players program them? If so, It seems to me like that would be a good opportunity for programmers to give their bots awesome mods to make them invincible, or have improved speed, or something of the sort. But, then again,...

I just visited Overlord's CTF map. I remember that map being the first one I ever played on, though that area in my memory is a little... foggy. It is very fun, I remember, when lots of players join, and I think they should more often. Though, if I had to change some things, I would make the time-sp...

Yes, I am positive that you have to define all the materials and physics and all that good stuff before you define the object that uses that material. I had that same problem you have until I moved all my physics and materials to the very top of the document, or at least before the object that uses ...

The best map to use a geno would be at a 2-team place (preferably NOT a capture-the-flag [because if your flag is captured you will die, of course]). This way, there are more teammates to help you out and you will kill half the people in the map with one kill (that doesn't make sense... :? ) instead...

I have two maps, one called "XLR8N's Castles" and the other called "XLR8N's Fortress Fury!" (You can search for maps with a filter with the "/" key in the select map screen.) Sorry, my maps are new and not well-known yet. Thanks for your response!

Poptart, A good strategy in BZFlag is to... 1) Never keep a single strategy . Try to be unpredictable and unable to decipher. 2) Be observant of the radar and "out-the-window" at all times. This will help you spot tanks with flags such as cloaking, stealth, or masquerade. 3) When in doubt, DON'T FRA...

Suggestions for XLR8N's maps

I'm XLR8, also known as XLR8N. I have noticed that not many people join my maps regularly, and that it would be awesome to provide a map that was popular! So, just to let me improve my map, what do you think should be added to it? What do you think should be in a next map that I could make? PLEASE B...

I also use a Logitech, although my mouse is so worn-out I can't tell its actual type or version or whatever. I have a left- and right-click, a scroll wheel, and some button in between that I have no idea what it does. :?

I'm probably best at the Two Tanks or at other capture-the-flag maps. I am worst at camping maps like Bloodbath. My favorite maps to play are on "dense" maps where there are lots of places for Stealths to hide. ST is my favorite flag, other than Wings (WG).
