Community Project

Hi all, I'm interested in starting a small scale effort to make minor improvements to BZFlag. In previous threads, artwork, texture packs, audio files and other items were posted. This provided some alternatives and also gave some other options if someone wanted a different style or theme. (Sadly so...

Re: The Grand Castles

2400 world size? It seems pretty difficult to navigate. And did you intentionally decrease the radar limit? It does seem that you put a lot of work into it, though. Yes, 2,400 in size. (It probably came overdone with size as the castles are 400 in world size.) The navigation was meant to be somewha...

Re: BZ running with WINE emulator?

I'll probably be moving away from desktop to Android tablet in the next wee while and was looking for a way to continue playing BZ. The only solution I've found so far is to run Linux on an x86 emulator but there are no precompiled BZ packages to download. I do not believe there is any way of curre...

It would. I don't want to publicly reveal all my standpoints.
Next time a survey system will be used. Hopefully more input will happen.
The decision to not use one in the first place was due to privacy concerns some people might have, but the assumption was wrong.

Quick key usage

Hi all, There is a feature in BZFlag known as quick keys. Quick keys send messages to either public or team chat. They can also be used for issuing commands, which makes them really useful in some cases. I've used them for various tasks and here's a bit of some ideas on what they might prove useful ...

Re: a new idea - team death match

Games could also be won by reaching a certain number of points/kills by team.
First to 500 per team wins.
Skycolor could change depending on which team has the lead as well.
Map changes after one team has won the game.

Poll Improvements

Hi all, Over time there has been a number of ideas for a better polling system. Currently the polling system requires players to vote via /vote yes or /vote no . This is nice, but overly complicated and detailed. Instead add /yes as an option and remove the /vote no and /vote yes options for a simpl...

Re: a new idea - team death match

Our "Free For All" is already what "team deathmatch" is in other FPS games. What you're describing sounds more like a team-based last man standing with some minor variations in the rules. Yes, it is last team standing.(My bad with using the incorrect term/mode.) The variations are basically somewha...

Hi all, I've decided to propose another idea for BZFlag. There has been a number of ideas and concepts for game modes. From simple to complex, there has been a large number of modes made. There is still some modes which have not been made/implemented. The idea for a team death match is players will ...

Re: Accessing an old account

Hi and welcome back EzBz.

Probably you'll want to contact a forum administrator by private message to see if you can regain access to your old account.
You can also get help from IRC too.

Re: Survey

I haven't really thought of using Google Forms or SurveyMonkey, but it might be a good solution for a future survey.
Maybe next time I'll do it via Google Forms, but I'm unsure if it would give better results.

Yes, BZIDs would be used for ranking.
