Hide objects from radar

Is there any way to prevent an object from appearing on the radar? I'm creating a map entirely contained in a room above the ground, and the floor of the room is hiding everything else on the radar.

Spin property plotting global domination

I've noticed something kinda odd. Whe I try to use the "spin" property on an object, such as an arc, I have to set the "position" of the object to 0 0 0 and "shift" it to where I want it. If I try to spin the object in place, massive and interesting lossage occurs, poss...

I'm on WinXP, with a Radeon 7200 64M, and my machine locks hard pretty often on complex maps, only rarely haveing the courtesy to drop to the desktop. It may just be outright overload doing it, though. The card is about due for retirement anyhow.

The only aspect of camping that I really find annoying on a good server is when a player decides to do nothing but camp... I knock out some sucker with an sb in a building, and he immediately respawns, goes flag shopping, and goes back to camping in the same spot. That's not playing... that's just p...

Oh gee. I messed up. I'm really sorry on this one.

I went back today and found the article on the PM site, after a bit of searching. My mistake big time.

It also hit Slashdot late last night, and it's in the Drudge Report queue. Holy %^$#, this is real!

All right, line up with your hands on the wall. You have been very bad children, and you deserve this. It's gonna hurt me more than it hurts you.

Some of you need to learn to use an amazing resource called the "internet", and some common sense.

One of the great strengths of SR is that when you are locked in a "dance" with another tank, you win by default. It's one of my favorites for 1x1. Also, you can sit just inside a teleporter and murder anything that comes through. Good way to make people hate you. SR works through walls. If...

Well, you wouldn't want to see me play BZflag, not one bit. For one, I have a hard time playing quietly; you can hear the WEEEELAAAA from across the dome when I have a GM. Further, I tend to dodge bullets by tipping my head backwards, poking holes in my leather body holster with my horns. My girlfri...

I'm using an AIW Radeon on an XP2000+, and it works nicely, except on extremely complex maps such as Borg Cube or BZ Olympics... then I have to turn down the graphics a tad.

Gah, may I point out that you are in a BZflag forum? Even if your Tanaridoodlewhicky rocks like a German death metal group, you're not gonna get a good response. I, for one, am unmoneyed, so BZflag is good for me.

I don't really get motion sickness unless it's over 80 degrees in the room, but I do tend to get dry-eyed. I sometimes move about in my chair when I'm not very "tuned in". After I've been playing a while, I tend to get so deep into the game that it nearly takes a box in the ear to get me t...

Geez, people. Game balancing is more the job of the server owner than the game designer. Think about it. For one, Wings can be toned down plenty already using server variables, not to mention tweaking GM as a handy counterweapon. Besides, a winged tank with three or so jumps would actually be a sitt...

How does this "league" thingy worky?

How does the league system work, exactly? I'm kinda new to the concept, although I've been playing BZ for quite a while.

I'm interested in FFA-type play. Maybe somebody would like to claim me.

The game is not designed to give you the high score. It's designed so everybody, including newbies, can have fun and get some kills. If I get zapped with the same laser seven times in a row, I promise you I'll be finding another server... and I'm no newbie. The point of opening a server is to attrac...

Well, some people have different preferences. Generally, the flag limits are tweaked to the map design. If it's designed as a camper's playground (pieinthesky), there will often be limits on GM and L. On maps where everyone is out in the open (Secretplace), all players are vulnerable and shot limits...
