Re: Give Genocide a radius

Better yet, just get rid of geno. It's makes a lot of otherwise fun maps miserable to play.

I, while having no admin abilities, was accused of cheating and giving myself flags. Told the guy he's an idiot, then killed him a few more times.

Just curious, with the new 2.4 release, has the format, objects (or their options), or anything else changed in any significant fashion?

Re: Music in bzflag

I'm imaging playing Mystic Valley and being able to follow people by hearing their music come from their tank. If that happens, then finally, my dream of having a bass seeking missile might come true! ;-)

Magnet flag(s)

I know suggests that would cause shots to bend have been killed before, but what the hell... I think it would be interesting to have magnetic flags. There are a few ways I see this playing out. 1) One flag, and it is randomly (set when you pick up the flag) has a north or south polarity. Depending o...

There are times I like wide-angle, like when I'm sitting on a ledge and would like to see the action going on below me. I would like instead of just normal and zoomed in, that the b keep cycle through those two and wide-angle. It could be very handy while on some structure launching GM's at people b...

This would be a global change, so I'm expecting this to be shot down (no pun intended)... Barrel vibrations. Like many FPS games, when you have the sniper riffle and the barrel moves around a bit, so you have to time your shots. I would like something like that when you use your binoculars (easily e...

Sealed, again.

With each maintenance release, I keep hoping the bugs that plague me will go away, they never do. I play under ubuntu and I've had this same problem for the last three maintenance releases, at least. Often when going through teleports, I get stuck and have to self destruct to get out. Also I get sea...

How about a shield that deflects joevano's shots when he says, "code it your self," or, "this is not a democracy," or otherwise is hostile to suggestions on a forum that specifically tells people to, "Make suggestions for improving one of the best games on the net!"

The Rincewind Flag.

This is like that but on steroids. Imagine a flag that does several things. It gives you high speed and quick turn...

Delay on picking up a flag.

Some games, people should have to earn that GM. :-p

One way to achieve this is to have it so that a player must spend a certain amount of time sitting on the flag to actually pick it up. Especially if it's your opponents team flag.

elevator shoes

For trench warfare maps, where the trench is deep enough you have to jump to shoot advancing enemy tanks, a flag to make to a little taller, so you can just peak/shoot over the edge would be great.

The trade off being, you would then be too tall to shoot anything on ground level with you.

Re: moveing objects

I would look forward to platforms you can ride. What happens when you get crushed by a moving object. Do you stop it (might be a nice feature for team play)? Does it kill you? Does it just pass through you? If movable objects come in to being, maybe tanks having mass would follow. Be able to push pe...

Re: Wanted (as in the movie)

I play keyboard, and I can see that mouse players would have an advantage, but I don't think it would be much of one. I do think if it was a map setting, people would search out QT to get tight arcing shots to shoot around corners.

Wanted (as in the movie)

It would be a fun option to have it so if you turn while firing, it puts a spin on the shot causing it to curve. The faster the spin the more pronounced the curve.

Re: An option to give the tanks substance and mass.

My idea was there would be bumping and blocking in racing maps. And You could design maps with bottle necks to frustrate players, if you so desired. OR even the possibility of pushing people. A game where the object is to force you opponent in to the lava. Or if you're out of ammo, you can still pus...

If you are running ubuntu on a sony viao...

Just a cautionary tale.

I upgrade to Karmic Koala and mouse button was flaky under bz, the graphics were jumpy, and the sound stopped working, and when I would quit bz, it would not release the screen.

Upgrading the nvidia driver to version 190 fixed everything but the sound.

An option to give the tanks substance and mass.

It seems kind of hokey to just drive through other tanks.

When doing the race courses, it would be fun to bump and grind tanks.

For combat maps, it would force people to think about their team members before they take up a sniping spot that keeps there team mates from entering or leaving an area.
