Re: givePoint and Retroreflector plugins

This is a much clearer and less vague or ambiguous, as previously it was wide open to interpretation. "This is much more A and less B and C, as it was previously very B and C and now it's much more A" This is how I read this response, as it seems very robotic and lacking meaning or real thought, si...

If only something like a league existed. You know, one that unites.
maybe one where you can create teams? and they play other teams? in CTF battles and the team with the most caps wins? hell, we need to set this up before our idea gets snagged!

LoX and LoXmini

Hi All, I am putting this in this thread instead of "Map Releases", as its purpose applies to LU. If it needs to be moved, I understand. In an attempt to stray us all away from the typical Duc-HiX loop of offis and fms, I created a map that combines the two in the hopes to add change. The map brings...

Re: Agatha's Thoughts on High-Level Gameplay

A simple theory: if you don't like the gameplay, then find a different game to play. If you want to make a map or a plugin that adds variety bc you think it's lacking, then do it yourself. Don't come here just to complain. You don't like it, do something to add to it.

Re: Agatha's Thoughts on High-Level Gameplay

Thanks for sharing Agatha. From my perspective, and I’m sure one shared by quite a few other players who been around for a while, if you’re looking for some kind of constant organized play-style on Apoc, you’re simply not at the right map. There’s times where I’m there and don’t touch the team flag ...

Re: Name stealing

I could be wrong, but if you go to the login page and hit "I forgot password" and enter your email that contains the account, you can just reset your original callsign password- that way whoever stole your original can't play with it

Map for Testing (Vicino)!

Hi all, I put together a somewhat smaller-sized map that has the /timelimit and /countdown options for FMs. In summary, it is a 2-shot, no jumping, ricochet map. The smaller size attempts to quicken the gameplay, in addition to the 4v4 max format. The map has two teles, one in each corner, to allow ...

BZFlag application support

I'm on a mac, and am missing the BZFlag folder in /Application Support that has my config and maps, etc. Any idea as to why its gone? Seems as though its been moved or misplaced but searching for it on my mac proves useless.

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

I like the idea. Now that there has been decent discussion, my questions about how the league would retain the significance of teams has been answered (it was the only flaw I could point out). I was skeptical at first about how the "team" aspect would be kept, but with all the discussion now, I thin...

Re: New Tournament Cup

real quick, and correct me if i'm wrong, or if I'm repeating something.

if the loser of match #2 goes on to win match #4 and play in the championship, that team should have to beat the winner of match #3 twice. it seems like it makes a win or loss in the first round pointless.

Since I upgraded to the new OS X (Mavericks 10.9), my lag has been crazy (as high as 2000ms sometimes). The lag issues did not occur until right after I upgraded to Mavericks. Graphic wise, the ga...

Well before it goes up, I noticed the crowding just playing with bots. So what I did was remove the "X" or "cross" from the Pillbox map to open up the center. I also adjusted and removed some of the stockade boxes that surrounded what would be the pillbox bases. Too many caused useless ricos and ove...

Hi everyone. This is such a simple idea for a map, and so easily put together, and maybe I'm years late and this has come up already. But what I did was combined the HiX map with a standard Pillbox map to make "PillHiX." I've been around BZFlag, on and off for several years, and so much enjoy watchi...

Exactly. That proves my point even more. Just the many changes and effects it would cause the server is unbearable. From variables, to lag, to code. Unneccesary.

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

I think we get that blast.

And when talking about pushing other tanks, it also brings other variables. If your at x speed and hit a tank, then the tank will travel x units far. And in general, tanks in BZFlag cant move sideways unless on physics. What if you hit the side of a tank?

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

With or with the steamroller flag, running into another tank and blowing up will get very annoying. In a map like Castle Warfare, it would get way hectic. seems lik a bad mod.

tanks, at least as i see it, can explode in different ways. On MW2, tanks are exploded quickly, with little smoke, and at a high circumference. But other map/servers have tanks exploding in a small area, slowly, with a big cloud of smoke that can distract you. And maybe its just me, so correct me if...
