Well, the problem is if you were running... and SUDDENLY you get the turret flag. You get killed. Maybe the flag AND a button will do that, other wise it could be annoying Well you can't really add another button that easily. And sometimes picking up a flag does kill you, like when you grab TH and ...

Actually, this idea is the closest I've seen to a workable "moving turret" idea.

Instead of pressing a button to get it that way, though, you'd probably pick up a flag. Apart from the up-and down motion raising and lowering the turret instead of driving, it would be the same as burrow.

Ah...my teles were meant to link to the floor above and the floor below, but they could link to any two floors in theory. Preferably two floors that aren't already directly linked...;)

This seems pretty cool! Attached is my entry. Only use the FRONT side of the teles, the backs are up against walls.

Sure, here are the same files in attachment form, sans the first screenshot due to the 4-attachment limit.

In other news, I plan to add another layer onto this map as soon as I get around to it.

Stepping Stones

Hi everyone, Here's my first map so far...the basic idea is that all the boxes jump you up to another level. http://joesmagicgathering.googlepages.com/Steppingstones.txt From the floor, you get bumped up to the large square in the center. From there, there are four routes you can take, each of which...

Is it possible to have multiple rabbits? You could have the 15th player join as a second rabbit, to divide the map into two major battles.

Maybe give the map three teams. Once team A secures the middle zone, they may have flags, but the other two teams will "gang up" to try to retake it, so they'll have to kill twice as many people.

Actually, there's a pretty simple way to implement the ammo idea. (Assuming this works, I have no idea how to code stuff)

You make it so that tanks without flags can't shoot, and then scatter some useless flags around with a shot limit on each one.

Okay, so we all camp (and most of us will admit it), but personally I think that camping is something to be discouraged rather than encouraged. It may be fun for the individual doing it, but think of the other players who may get killed many times over without even engaging the camping player in a ...

That. Sounds. Awesome. However, I think that 10 points for a flag is a bit much, unless the flag was so good you were all but garunteed to kill 11 people with it. Also, you could do /bank deposit with a negative score too, it would be the same as a withdrawal :) Would you buy things with points from...

What I do (in addition to the aforementioned ID key) is a move up to the highest layer, near the edge. I can see when people spawn on the layer beneath me, and then I can jump down behind them and kill them. If I must move around, I try to stay in the little patches of bushes, when you're on the rog...

I played there a couple of times, it's lots of fun!

My main strategy was to just keep moving as fast as I could...it's also not a bad idea to jump, since you'll most likely either land behind an obstacle or so far away that the person who you are running away from can't turn fast enough.
