OK firstly F687/s use the quote button instead of writing out the persons quote in full. Its right above.......................here! Its much easier :) Secondly I am sorry Tedius. I tried the sounds in the game and found the trig/happy and machinegun sounds very good. I take back what I said and beg...

Re: On Steamroller... and combining it with momentum...

My opinion, but I think that combining the momentum flag with steam roller would be fun (but I'd prefer to take the momentum name). There's better trade-off between advantage/disadvantage, it simplifies the flag and weakness. It's still pretty logical and intuitive to the player, plus you can go pr...

Mine was silvercat (overlord or babel) and I always try to go back to play them wenever i can. You can do well given time and skill, you can't camp so well and well balenced ctf (not too hard or too easy) are 3 reasons that make them really good maps. I miss them :cry: And loumans lasermania too as ...

Yea but then you have to wait until someone comes near a teleporter and most of the time the other player will see you and back away. How many servers with PZ flags actually have effective teles so they can be used? Not many I feel... Yes you are mostly invincible but you cannot kill anyone unless t...

I dont mean to sound like the party pooper but what about machinegun and trig happy flags? With the new fire sound a machinegun would sound odd. Might need a different sound? Other then that very harmonious sounds but I do like the old theif sound. Just one other thing I noticed many sounds you have...

Make PZ flag stronger

PZ flag has long been a stupid flag only used as a distraction and annoyance. I mean how many times have people actually killed another PZed flag player under PZ flag effects? How about PZ cannot shoot regular bullets but has steamroller effect? Can still be killed by sw and sb and watever normal fl...

People do not like mines; they cause unavoidable death. Yes that is true but on the servers ive played where uselessmines are used people generally just stop crying and move on. No one likes dying and as long as there is only 1 or 2 useless flags on a map its not very often you are the victim. Anyw...

The original idea was that a shot splits and though i no little about coding, i think it would be very tricky to successfully split a shot into pieces without lagging out the server. I didn't add the air safe but stealth can still be shot by gm's and the player maybe could try to draw missles away f...

Yes AAA shotgun is still there. Go control+f or apple+f (depending on type of computer) and type in shotgun and it will find it on the page. The galaga flag i agree at first sounds interesting but it would really only make your tank far easier to hit. But it might be interesting if it simply added a...

I am pretty sure I have seen somthing like that before. True. I found it and it was rejected with never :cry: . Still it was just to split shots, not to have multiple shots so there is a difference :| . I imagine it is almost impossible to make the program split a shot into particles so that may be...

New flag (cos its time for a change)

It been awhile since theres been a new flag so I thought of a shotgun flag. Since theres already a machine-gun flag i thought why not a shotgun flag. I think it would shoot your full amount of shots (eg: 3 for 3 shot map, 5 for 5 shot map) wif 5 or so degrees difference between the straight one and ...

I don't know much but for question 4 to set steamroller radius bigger type (without the "s) "/set _srRadiusMult <amount>" and replace amount with whatever suits :D its a gud idea to type it without the amount first so it shows you what it is currently set at "/set _srRadiusMult"

polls dont work to well at boxy as there has to be 7 players present and 4 voters. apathetic voters are a main problem with this as they just dont care or dont vote because the team killer is on the other team. their always there when u least want them to be

I understand but most of the time the player in question is unregistered with a name that has no meaning or is difficult to write (like dfhfhsdahaehdsfbgdzfhwr). I've been a registered player for more then a year and a regular at servers like boxy. The only thing bad I normally do is lag slightly be...

This is referring to TD-Linux Well I sure don't get it. Team killers and laggers can't even get poll banned and even when an admin is around they usually just kick them with a warning and then I get banned permanently with no warning for something which I wouldn't consider cheating. Maybe lag helped...
