its true to a certain degree its nice to have no flag games that are free of flags. if thats the case, join one of the many leagues that most of them are like that but in my opinion, servers like boxy war and stuff, the whole time people (mainly admins) were saying 'this is a ctf server, stop worryi...

hmm, /me wonders how many characters it is possible to get your score too

did you do that on a global server? because that would seriously screw with your strength index ;)

yes, but it would be nice to really work with the story mode idea, for instance when you reach certain parts of the map you get a srvmsg telling you something like lvl 1 complete - time: 51 seconds, and a physics driver kills you and you spawn at the next level, or you enter the next level through a...

one side drive through

ok, before you all go off at me - i did search the forums, came up with nothing :(. and i have looked at the boxy wars, map, and it only made my brain hurt.

ok, wondering how i make a platform you can drive through on one side, and not the other, like on boxy wars. simple enough, i hope.
