Re: spawing issues

I know somewhere this has probably been suggested before. I have had a lot of newbies and old timers remark about spawn kills. As I am still learning how to write the most basic coding in software dev. Can somebody add a 2-3 second delay for both invincibility and no shooting just time to move befo...

I suppose we could have a plugin that figures out the flag holder's position and fires a shockwave way above the house, at their X-Y coordinates, so we can see on the radar. interesting idea, but that would only help at the start. you wanna follow where he goes too. Well, it's not automatic, but i ...

I can't put it up... my SSH is still broken. If someone else could host it, I'm going to put it in the Map Releases board either in a few minutes, or before I go to work tomorrow. It's done enough to be put out. So if someone wants to host it, I'll be putting up the map, and also some suggested opti...

Sweet! :) My initial thought was that the arean would be bigger in a way that it had a roof and such :P Have you tested it? Yeah, and I did a cool flag zone thing, also. But I have one corner on the battle arena that seems to be below the others. It shouldn't be, but for some reason, it's being dra...

Is the teleporter right in front of a wall? If so, that's why the bullet goes through, and the tank doesn't.

Grace F wrote:flags.......hmm, I prefer no flag servers.
If flags were to go into this 1 I suggest not putting SW|L|GM but others like F|T|N etc.
No BU either! ;)

WW's, you could put 1 in but it depends on the structure of the Battle Arena.
Any ideas for the design of the arena?

Is there going to be anything special about this arena? Perhaps a WW of some sort. I don't know... should there be WWs? And of course there will be obstacles. Also, what flags should there be? I don't know if there should be any at all, and certainly not OO or PZ. GM is too powerful, I bet, and SW ...

Alright, more updates. All I have left to do it put up obstacles for the battle arena. Oh, and one of the quadrants of the upper floor is lower than the other ones for some reason... you can't drive straight from the green corner to the blue or red corner, you get stuck. It's weird, I just used a de...

Alright, more updates. I got the ceilings and walls done for the physics area (level 2). There are also drive-through walls (but not shoot-through) to kind of protect you from getting shot while in the tunnels. The center area is ready to have the elevator added, and then I will add the battle arena...

Don't fire them all at once. Fire them one or two at a time, and have them circle around or something. There's some sort of limit it's reaching when you fire them all at once.

TangenT, perhaps explain how to add them instead of just saying how you can't? :) Though he is right, there ain't a way to put flags in via BZEdit. Try opening your map file using notepad or another text editor. When you have that open enter some standard options at the top. Here's an example. opti...

Some crashes are due to the map, and I had some of these problems do to spawns or textures... but I doubt that's it. Hope your comp starts acting better soon. When you say rendering weird, are you getting that evil stretch the caution texture wrong on conveyer belts? Map seems relatively unique. :)...

It might be a little while. I'm having computer troubles. Half the time when I load up BZFlag, my computer crashes now, in addition to the other 2 billion random crashes it's had lately.

Stupid Dell laptop.

Alright, more progress today. Added the conveyer belts. Some of the meshes are being funky, but they WILL NOT affect gameplay at all, it's just something weird with how they're being rendered or something.
