great, how about we implement a bz variable for god mode aswell? take the edge off for the cheaters. lol. i'm not a big fan of the idea tbh, its much work to code it all in, yet how much will it really bring to the game? it would render many flags useless, and mean that people could just be lazy, be...

This is a great direction for BZFlag to go!
WZFlag will allow for lots of expansion graphics-wise, and gameplay wise.

Personally I would like to see less than 30 servers (there are rarely more than 20 with players on them anyway), and let them use mapchange plugins or rotations to change the maps around. Assuming that these 30 servers had good bandwidth, this would probably enhance the quality of gameplay, and enc...

BZflag does do speed of sound and Doppler shifting of positional sounds as it mixes, using the source of the sound in the computation. So that's the reason that the SW sound sounds goes one octave up when I'm killed. Since my speed is no longer defined, it goes to a preset setting. ive always wonde...

Re: useful when you want to show the other observer somethin

Another feature might be if the "drive with", "follow" or "tracking" modes would allow you to see what another observer is looking at. Many times while exploring a new map with another player, while both of us are observer, I or the other person would say something like "look at this over here" and...

as far as flags go, its a good idea, but in my opinion its just not worth it to add a flag that gives you the radar because non-radar maps just arent popular enough.
its making a flag that applies to about 20 of the 210 servers that are in the list, about 3 of which are used
