Re: Thoughts on competitive/league play

I want to see the league active again - and I like the idea of an app or something that helps find matches easier than strayers - but being automatically transferred to a match doesn't allow for normal things that come up (a slight work delay, somebody at the door, finishing a phone call, etc.). Som...

Re: Spring 2019 Babel Triples Challenge

A big thank you to macsforme and everybody who organized this, it was a ton of fun - I've missed tournamentish play! I think it went very well and deserves to be applauded. A monthly thing might be kind of cool - what do you guys think?

Re: Spring 2019 Babel Triples Challenge

Hey guys, there were only four players that weren't grouped up on a team yet (I'm looking at you Hogfish, Pesky_UK, R3laX, Runruns!)

I sent invites to all of you, would love to play with whomever!

Re: Roadmap

I'm curious on the direction of the league as well - maybe we need an overhaul - new maps, new scoring, something to spark more interest in the league? But maybe not, would love to hear thoughts on this!

Re: Xug FFA by ahs3

Thanks ahs3, this is a fantastic map - makes me think of the days of Ziggyworld, Badgerkings, etc. But it's definitely got the defining ahs3 details. I played on it a good 30 minutes to an hour the other day for my first visit - good stuff! Seems pretty balanced, each playing style seems to have goo...

3D Progams - best one?

Heya tankers! I'm thinking about getting back into mapmaking and it would be fun to try something outside of my tried and true go-to of BZEdit this time. I've heard of people using a variety of 3D modeling programs but I think last I knew the best one with the best controls is Blender? Anyone find a...

Haha, sometimes. :) My tank squeaks and needs a little oil can, but it still runs if you kick it a few times.

Re: Kiddy-Korner Map

This map is a ton of fun, thanks for making it and to the host for putting it up for our enjoyment! I really like the recent updates with new textures/adjusting the bridge to a very dark blue. It helps with concealing sneaky tanks crossing and overall it just looks good and plays well.

Re: Breizh Wall

Looks like you were going for the "Classic" BZFlag sort of feel. Are all the blocks weaponized? It looks like based on the screenshot your tank will explode if touching them and I didn't pull up the world file yet.

Re: Name stealing

If you are not playing under a registered name, unfortunately somebody can register at any point and boot you off of servers. If your name is important to you then you should register it /here/ on the forums and then play in game with your same forum username and password. But it is a problem. Peopl...

Re: Feedback wanted: Updated BZFlag website

First off, thanks for the nod toward Missile War 3! Second off, I love the simplified look and the game-play video you've implemented on the home page. With shorter attention spans in the world I feel like quick-gripping pages are a great improvement. Thirdly, I like llrr's idea of attracting more a...

Re: Options to make BZFlag popular

I definitely think adding new flags would generate some excitement. However, most of the flag ideas have already been implemented, what more would really add to the game? And maybe there could be some success with a social media campaign - a lot of online games are so cookie-cutter that this might b...

Re: Missile War 3

Tried it yesterday, can't wait for 10v10 battles ;)
And maybe disable Rogue tanks?
I've heard a few tankers say they weren't fond of the idea of a few stray rogues. That setting may change in the near future.

Oh, and I too look forward to the brawls. Maybe I'll see you there. :)

An amazing, well thought of map, with a great and professional design.
Gosh, I don't know about professional, but I appreciate the compliment and I'm glad you enjoy the design. I hope we'll get to tank on it together sometime. :)

Re: Retribution FFA

Reminds me of a map hosted on an old 1.0 server called Freedomlives - I like the strategy behind having to jump from one cube to another and having to think about when you do it and how exposed you are in the process. Very nice.
