Re: BZSoccer and BZHockey

i agree ::: just set up a bot and cage him in a box ;)
(or server-modding but harder to share the map among hoster's)

Re: CTF with 1 Flag

. the map is now worked over completely (again) but still represents a "mockup" for testing the concept! from what i got as player-input so far ::: most player like that "new" play-style ! but the BIG problem is that most of them just don't get it and wonder what they shall do with that tiny flag. s...

Re: z Best Of z 2009

by the way ::: try this map (slightly modified) with a V3 client on 001.bzflag.fr:5198 thanks to trepan we have a lua-rule included that makes a shot deadly only if it ricochets of a wall, pyra or is fired through a tele! real fun and challenging to play and shows just a fraction of what lua can do!...

good input ::: thanks!

Re: CTF with 1 Flag

just some thinking added ::: i like the "tiny-flag idea" too! but now the famous "but" ::: i think the capping itself would be to hard! just one player would be enough to take that entry under fire and make it almost impossible to cap. the strategy would be just changed ::: instead of a player defen...

CTF with 1 Flag

well its about the upcoming "Bzf World Cup" event and trying to combine soccer/football on a ducati map. discussing about the soccer idea to be a big part of this event and that the "real" game is played with only one ball on the field brought us to the idea of a CTF with only one flag ... (and cert...

Re: don't let BZFlag die

sorry but the topic got a bit off track ::: i hope a soon release of version 3 is possible to get BZFlag back on its tracks ;-)
could it be possible to get some 2.99 compiled clients ready to do a bit testing and getting a taste of what is coming?

Re: Cave Warfare

love it! good concept ::: especially the "underground-dimensionality" it has with the different levels and layout! maybe sizing the textures a bit smaller to fit it 1:1 would make it visually even more attractive? anyway ::: you're crazy ahs3 ;-) (how many hours went into this one?) .

good idea to give all online players a chance to vote for a map in a rotation!
