Re: Goxel editor

Many export formats Goxel can export to obj, pyl, magica voxel, png, qubicle, povray, and more. From the project website, it supports exporting to OBJ. Take that OBJ, open it up in Wings 3D, export it to a .bzw. (or use modeltool) It's possible to use this to create bz maps. With regards to lag, as...

Useless Mine - (the maintained version)

This plugin will allow you to create "mines" by typing /mine when you're carrying the Useless flag. When another player drives over your "mine," a large shockwave will explode at that location! Oh, and you get the points for any tanks the shockwave kills. This is yet another implementation of the "U...

Capture Bonus

Here's a plug-in that grants players a static amount of extra points whenever they capture a flag; similar to Apocalypse. The default behavior for self-captures is to deduct points from the player, but this can be disabled if you have a unique map that requires a self-capture. All development for th...

Re: Server Filtering (version 2)

Servers can already be filtered as of 2.4.x. There's also the ability to add servers to your "favorites," which means they'll be highlighted for you.

Lag or language policies aren't reported to the server list, you'd have to write filters for the servers you find manually.

I still don't see planet-mofo.com and specifically the Apocalypse map in the server list.
This would be a question that would be best directed towards Optic Delusion and the appropriate forum thread for Planet MoFo.

Re: MyPosition

This gives me an idea for a plug-in to permit choosing where you spawn next. Sadly it is a bit limiting with the fact of not being able to teleport, but the effect can be simulated a bit. I guess this will be my next project in the near future. Instead of trying to reinvent the wheel or updating an...

Re: UselessMine - Create Mines with the Useless Flag Once Again!

In the grenade plugin, we can make the size of the shockwave produced smaller than _shockOutRadius, (but not larger). This is done by ending the shock early. Also, the speed of the shock's enlargement can be controled. Can this effect be applied to this plugin? I believed I followed up with you abo...

Re: OnCap function for worldWeapons-ServerShots

bz_triggerFlagCapture calls the internal bzfs function which is used whenever a flag capture happens regularly, meaning a flag capture event is fired. The onCap world weapons listen to the flag capture event, so unless the current code is broken, it'll trigger the world weapons. Keep in mind, this ...

Demilitarized Zones - Sorta

This plug-in introduces "demilitarized zones" where any shots originating from inside the DMZ are converted to zoned shots. Any world weapons originating from inside the DMZ are disabled. This means any extra shot flags (like the ones on Mofo) will not shoot any extra shots from within the DMZ. !!! ...

Re: bzflag.allejo.io servers

On occasion, Useless Mine and Bomb Defusal would grant points to the wrong players, this has been patched properly this time (hopefully). Updates will be pushed out automatically this coming weekend whenever the servers are empty so no downtime is planned. :)
