Re: Time of Day

It worked for me on my local server on the same version that you are on, as long as I did not disable tell the server to disable that feature (if you want to call it that). In my case I had to press and hold one of those two buttons until the screen either went darker or brighter. Then it cycles mea...

Re: Wiki being phased out

As to why that is good reason.

Please do not forgot anything in the Wiki, into the readme file(s) or into documentation.

Also how does one compile using plug-ins, as another example not in readme file(s) or into documentation - yet.

While that looks good, unless I am missing something, it is only for computers running Windows - Not cross platform. :(

Re: a new idea - capture the zones

The closest thing to what is being talked about, I point to Plug-in Releases -> All Hands On Deck (AHOD)

Capture the flag, bring it to the neutral base, and all of your other team mates must be also be at that base (zone) for a win.
