Re: Mapchange Poll Suggestion

Actually, it would be a copy and paste. As explained, this is already implemented in the BZFlag source code. I am sure that one of these developers or anyone who has experience with this source code would have no trouble pinpointing where this logic is. Also, I am a professional developer as a livin...

Re: Mapchange Poll Suggestion

I think you are thinking too much into this. You know how the /poll kick and /poll ban works, right? It would be the same thing, except instead of running the command to kick someone automatically, it would change the map. 1) Every registered GU player gets to vote, just like a regular /poll kick, a...

Mapchange Poll Suggestion

I've got a suggestion to add a new /poll command for GU. Although I guess most members don't have the access to do /poll, perhaps this can be added independently? Anyway, the idea is to have the command: /poll mapchange <mapName> Example: /poll mapchange Hix This will start a poll to change the map ...

Options to make BZFlag popular

I know Constitution and many more have created posts for conversations about BZFlag's loss of inactivity and potential solutions and changes, however, recently on a hix server we had a similar debate. We started talking about how BZFlag has changed from having a lot of activity to no activity. We us...

Re: New Maps?

I thought GU was defined by the map and its style. Just as Ducati is defined as a random generator, no jumping, 2 bullet rico. Openleague is unique as well.

If you can come up with a unique fun competitive map, then make a new league out of it.

Re: New Silly Cup

In my eyes, the point of the silly cup was to 1) Have fun, 2) Increase activity, 3) Allow regular players to participate in competition. In my eyes, I believe it failed because 1) It had no organization (there was no structure during the event), 2) Barely anyone showed up, 3) It was not a competitio...

Re: New Silly Cup

Ok, since the past few days I have been rather annoyed and upset about how the silly cup went. I hate to make it such a big deal, but I tried my best. It seemed as if the event was favored by most, yet during the event, it seemed as if nobody wanted it. Its fine if you don't want the tournament or t...

Re: Debate: Who gets to report

The problem of access by many players entering matches is not just the matches they enter but they then have access to alter matches already entered. It would be a huge undertaking to add a large number of players to the group. Agree with kierra, the simplest solution is to add a few more refs, not...

Re: Debate: Who gets to report

wouldn't actually need the people who played, silly, that would probably be extraneous info. Yea, well I was just thinking that if every player was able to report, requiring them to enter the people who played may help define which matches are accurate or fake, because then you can just ask other p...

Yes, there are some bugs to it, but I mean, when will there NOT be bugs to it? I think more servers need to implement the plugin. And I am ...

Re: A Matter of Principle

It truly astonishes me how so many of us players could be so united, but so wrong. The truth is BZFlag is a game with an involved community. It is a multiplayer, open source, completely free, virtual fighting game for people across the world. It wouldn't be multiplayer if only one person played. It ...

Re: New Silly Cup

So the cup is only 1 week away. We have 25 players signed up in the Waiting List. Thus, I have made an unofficial team list. Teams were created at random but were modified a few times to try and keep things fair. Mythic and zar have helped with that. So, my goal right now is to finish things off and...

Re: Proposal for rikers/chesval | increasing league activity

As has been said by other, Rikers/Chesval is meant for "the best of the best" it might not be the best idea to take that way. But what about introducing a tournament that is like Rikers specifically designed for a wide range of player skills. That way we wouldn't have to worry about taking away the...

Re: Proposal for rikers/chesval | increasing league activity

Yea, as annoying as it is and how it doesn't seem fair, I still think the best of the best should play, not the most active. We have to remember that when these cups were created, there was a lot of activity and a lot of big competition. The original idea/goal of both cups were to have a friendly co...

I think its a good idea.

Although, actually, the cups have done some good by bringing back a few players ...

Over the years the GU admins have consistently refused to create detailed written rules covering every possible situation, despite repeated requests for such from a few players. I do not expect any change in that position even in light of recent events. I can only suggest that you start a new leagu...
