Thats a pretty cool idea, sort of like a skyscraper.
A few questions though-
How does a tank get from one level to another?
What do you plan to put in for the options in the final map?

BZEdit can't add flags, you've got to put them in by hand. Open up your map file in TextEdit if you're using a Mac, or Notepad if you're running Windows. Scroll down to the end of the file and add in: zone position 0.0 0.0 0.0 # location of flag on map rotation 0 # not really necessary size 1.0 1.0 ...

Try the map I've attached. One teleporter is outside the playing area, and you can only get halfway into the other teleporter. I don't think your idea will work.

SC.. you can already zoom with binocs, the reload time/range thing has some merit, but since it is a flag the not moving part makes you a sitting duck and no one in their right mind would hold on to the flag I think Stij meant you will still be able to move when you're not zoomed in with the scope....

A friend and I tried something similar to your CL+ST idea, only we used WG and CL on Planet Mofo. My friend had CL, and would plant himself between a teleporter box and one of the pyramids, and I would fly directly above him, about 30-40 units high. When people came by, they thought it was only me w...

I just tried it, and I got my mouse wheel to fire when I scroll up. Go to Options->Input Settings->Change Key Mapping->Fire Shot and change it to Wheel Up. It won't fire continuously, you've got to keep scrolling, which is harder to control, for me anyways.

I think I fixed the problem of being stuck on the base. I finally managed to get the problem to happen to me on a LAN game, and after changing the base thickness from .1 to 1 unit it hasn't happened since. As for the flag locations, I don't know what to do to fix that. From R3laX's screenshots, it s...

Well, it seems like it must be a problem with me since other people are having the problem.

Then, when I join and spawn, I get stuck on the base. I have to self destruct. Then when I jump on the base, I get stuck again. So it seems you need to do a little testing at this point yet. Also, create a unique name for the map. It seems like an interesting layout, but just has a few bugs yet. Th...

This is a CTF map I've been working on for a few weeks. There are no major problems that I know of, so I'm calling it done. Although I'll probably always be able to find something worth changing. Flags- GM, ST, L, CL, SE, SB, SW, BU, PZ, WG More about the map-- http://my.bzflag.org/bb/viewtopic.php?...

While L, SW, and GM are great camping flags, I tend to like BU the best. As long as you keep an eye out for Thiefs, High Speed, and Agility you're pretty safe. Plus, it's cool to see the crisscrossing laser above you when someone gets the rico shot.

Say a red and a blue tank are both inside the greens base, and they are really slaughtering the greens. Wouldn't it be more to the red and blue teams advantage for them not to kill each other, but to work together? I've been playing Missile War quite a bit lately, and I've been in this situation a f...
