Thanks! I'm having a problem where you sometimes spawn on the wrong blue base (There are two bases, for each flipped state). Does anyone know how to make it so you always spawn on one blue base? I'd make the upside down base a meshbox and texture it. The only way I've found to use multiple bases an...

The plugin doesn't work on the newer versions. The way I get around it is just to open the .wings file up in 0.98.34 and export from there. :/

Checkmate

Here's a new map that I've worked on over the last few days. It's just a quick one so I don't get burnt out on a much bigger map that's in the works. ;D Flags and tanks only spawn in the squares where the chessmen are when you begin a game. I tried to pick flags that have some resemblance to the che...

I believe it should be:

Code: Select all

zone
  size 50 50 1
  position 0 0 0
  zoneflag R* 1
  zoneflag B* 1
  zoneflag G* 1
  zoneflag P* 1
end
You'll also need -c in the options and a base for each team.

Try Constitution's adminListener plugin. With proper usage, it's a nice plugin that can really help stop arguments before they escalate into something harder to deal with. However, it's also really annoying when admins start commenting on regular chat between me and whoever I may be talking to.

I was using a shockwave so it would stay in one place. :P If I had got that going, I'd add a bullet so it would look like fire and the bullet were coming out of the barrel.

I can think of some really good uses for that... notably specially timed world weapons: A tank with a moving turret AND it fires at you! Good job. I'm not sure if it's possible. :( I just spent about 20 minutes trying to get a shockwave to go off when the barrel was pointing straight ahead. Even ad...

It's more like one in thirty at ahs3's dodge trainer, and you're the second I've seen stuck at BZEX CTF. I'm not sure what causes it, but it happens more than you think.

I'm not entirely sure this is possible, but it would be cool if the deck guns could pivot and fire at people.

It's also a good idea to make sure your map file doesn't have a space in the name. So I'd change BZ Basketall.bzw to BZ_Basketall.bzw.

Once the plugin is done, you'd type /k and after a 3 second countdown, you'd explode into a SW. Any other death will be normal.
