Re: I got bored

Bringing some life back to this thread; I would be very interested in bringing this idea to a map that I'm making; would it be possible to proceed with this one concretely? From what I recall, this feature would be available in a future protocol break and I believe it was for 2.6.x, if I am not mis...

Hello everyone. I have decided to release my guide for compiling BZFlag on Windows. Step 1: Downloading the proper files. First open and use your favorite web browser. Head over to github.com/BZFlag-Dev/bzflag and download the current protocol version. (At the time of this writing, it is 2.4.x) Down...

Reduction of slash commands in official plug-ins

One thing, I have noticed which could perhaps be improved on a few plug-ins is the reduction of slash commands. For example, the following code within the KoTH plug-in: if ( command == "kothautotimeon") { koth.autoTimeOn = true; autoTime(); bz_sendTextMessagef (BZ_SERVER, BZ_ALLUSERS, "King of the H...

Re: bz_ePlayerDieEvent kill tracking issue

I'm trying to track both actual kills made by players and one attributed to players. As in the case of PlayHistoryTracker, it works well tracking actual kills, but server shots made on the behalf of players do not end up being attributed to them. Examples of this include Useless Mines, Grenade, and ...

bz_ePlayerDieEvent kill tracking issue

Currently we can track kills made by players rather easily with this event and thus PlayHistoryTracker and various other plug-ins are able to take advantage of this feature, however, this does not seem to take into account 'non-player' kills which are assigned to players. Is there a way to possibly ...

Re: Default Flag Server Variables Rework

Then again, the main argument of reworking the values is based on having better default starting options. Perhaps what may work better is to simply have a few sample configuration files or to have a list of the variables, along with a reference of settings which tend to work well and are balanced. (...

Re: Default Flag Server Variables Rework

I agree that a rework would be great. Currently MG is more of a 'bad' flag with default settings. (Wide-angle, bouncy, or no-jump end up being a far better flag than MG at default.) Steamroller tends to vary a bit with effectiveness in range, but overall, SR is not as useful or effective as it could...

Re: Public Team Score Contribution Value

It seems reasonable to allow an “objective score” to go negative for gameplay abuse/sabotage, if it otherwise serves as a positive reinforcement even for new players who only contributed a little. Currently, having a negative score all the time can be discouraging to new players, in my view. I'd ag...

Autopilot '[auto]' Display Issue

It seems to appear, that if one joins a server when someone is running the client with autopilot, the '[auto]' part, does not display.
This continues until the client toggles autopilot again and then everything is normal and the '[auto]' status works as normal.
