Fire would likely be a better choice, as identify is actually useful in observer mode. What does this key accomplish in observer mode? I joined up to a server as an observer, and couldn't figure out what it did. Nothing, that is why it would be a good candidate for the proposed functionality... Yes...

Patches welcome.
I can't code BZFlag Source. I'd submit a patch without question if I could.

Follow a player in observer mode by lookin' at them.

Often times I'm roaming freely in BZflag, as an observer, and I want to be able to observe the person I'm looking at, then switch back to another person quickly. The best way to do this in my opinion, would be to simply hit a hotkey and observe the nearest player (same tracking as if I would be aimi...

Strength Index of -1,000,000 ^_^;;

Alright here we go. This is my worst (best) game ever :P 1 - 1500 or so. The one kill I made was intentional of course, in order to properly assess a strength index. I was very surprised but this score is actually a strength index of around -1 million.

6 to 1 kill ratio at Planet Mofo. Score of 90. ^_^;; 20 min

Well here's my like, decent kill ratio. Something like 6 to 1. Score of 90. That's 108 to 18 :P ^_^;; >_> Not all that amazing, but still ahead of my goal for 3 to 1 for when FFA starts remembering my scores again. I don't know if 20 mins is accurate. It didn't feel that long, but oh well. It all ha...

I do absolutely nothing but breathing when I play BZFlag. Sometimes someone will call my cell (like my mom or dad) and bother me though :D

I play for a few minutes at a time until I figure out what the problem in my code was.

that's a rather useless command. you can just tell them to stop owning, and you can easily gather 'forces' under a truce to kill him with words. you dont need a new command to do this. It was a fake command. I never wished it to actually be implemented. Now that I think about it, it was pretty lame...

TR flag should just lower your shot range/jump/speed. Nuff. Should also allow anyone to kill you, but you still can't kill team mates.

DW: PlayerName - Use to warn players not to kill you

Here is what I feel is a very useful command towards players. It's called, DeathWish. You simply type up the command in a server and hit enter. Here's the syntax: Usage: DW (or DeathWish): Player Name, Condition Parameters: DEATHWISH (or DW), Name of Command PLAYER NAME, name of the player you wish ...

It all depends on what server you're in. Planet-MoFo adores the WG flag, and for a time being there (a short one), I was declaring myself the WG master and annihilating anyone who even dared touched threatening flags to WG. The flag itself isn't the imbalance, it's the server's settings for it. You ...

I had this great time where I had just spawned in the air at about 400 ft, and jumped off. Some WG thought he'd be slick and shoot me while I was falling.

I fired off three shots and when he jumped to get to my height he er...Overdid it :P

Booomm!! I owned him :wink:

Thats not the best advice to follow,because listen:If the person you are shooting at jumps he could scive all 3 shots, so shoot 2 and then save the last incase u miss! same as if they jump and shoot at them when they land! That is decent advice because servers have different amount of shots. Most a...
