Re: BZFlag inspired game under development

#1 Great that you offer Windows and Mac, but what about Unix/Linux?

#2 If the source code is how one gets to work on Unix/Linux, then:

a) Is it only for 64bit or also for 32bit?

b) What does one need to do to create from source code?

Thank you

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.

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.
