You could try to put some world weapon lasers (in the corridor) and death zones. For instance, if you go into this area, you instantly die. (you could post warnings about "land mines") I wouldn't put laser flags in the map though (too boxy).

This is a good map, but I think that you should be able to drop a team flag on on of the spirals instead of letting it float back to the base. Anyway, it does require some Advil before playing :gross: :gross: . :)

These are indeed nice servers and nice maps, but what is with the Trop-Bot? I mean, whenever I see that 1 player is in one of your servers, I think that it is a human waiting for someone to join. But alas, its only a bot.

An admin does not have to be present for a passing poll to take some sort of action (for example, a flag reset). But on set polls, nothing ever happens. The question is: why?

The Set Poll

For servers that allow users to run set polls, why doesn't the poll ever change anything? I mean, when you run a set poll to set _radarLimit 0, and it passes, nothing ever happens. This happens on every server that has set polls enabled for some reason. My question is, why?

I know this may sound stupid :roll: , but I believe that the image for BZFlag on the Wikipedia article is a bit outdated. It's from version 2.0. Here is the Wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BZFlag Now, since I got yelled at for all my pictures being in low quality, I've managed to update...

Wouldn't several plugins also be necessary for the tutorial map? I mean, the server prompts have to come from somewhere. They might explain the rules ever so often or would actually tell the noobs what to do.

You do get 5 seconds before you actually SD. I would use those 5 secs to tell whether you are about to be killed. If not, then you can cancel the SD process by pushing DEL again. If so, then your opponent is robbed of a point, and you win (kind of).

Uh, wouldn't shooting yourself with geno lower your score?
Also, wouldn't your # of tks shoot sky high?

Maybe a better word of advice would be to be on the dominant team with a bunch of teammates, and shoot everyone up. (Be careful not to TK)

Vandalism at BZFlag.org?

When I try to open http://www.bzflag.org, all I get is a blank page. The server can't be down because the page did load (blank). Was the server hacked? Or are they revamping the server?

2.0.0 was released in January 2005, and the rest of the versions were just mainly bug fixes. 2.0.8 was released in May 2006. Currently, the oldest downloadable version (1.7e6) was released in June 2002. 1.10 wasn't released until December 2003. I wouldn't expect 2.1 to be coming out anytime soon. Yo...

It is possible, but it would run a whole lot slower, though. If it were to be done, you would have to use Macromedia Flash or Shockwave, which would make the game look cheap, or get someone who knows Java REALLY well. The other problem is getting it to be online without having it look like crap. The...

Maybe you could try a BU flag, but increase its speed and turn speed a lot. This could be useful for the sides, as enemy tanks drive down the alley toward the other base. You could place this right under the SW flags.

Oh, sry. In that case, then sniping from the corners (where you get SW) is a whole lot better than sniping from the sides of the base because you can get a wider range of shooting. I never shoot from the sides because you are confined to a 15 degree turn window for shooting. It sucks. Also, when you...

If I am on the strong team (there is usually a strong and weak team in Boxy War), then I can quickly rack up my score by sniping from the corner. (And no, the corners cannot snipe each other for some strange reason) But if I am on the weak team, then within 30 seconds of me getting on the corner box...

The server is still there, but usually its not populated, so its toward the bottom of the list. When you go to "find server," push "/" and type "bzfx." Dodgeball should be there, and you can save it if you want to.
