The power of the flags tends to be increased with non radar maps. All of them are my favorite. Once your opponents start relying on hunting and the ID key, that's when ST becomes quite useful. I like your idea about headphones h0ley, I hadn't thought of that. My favorite thing to do on Mystic Valley...

Maps without radar

What ways of playing have worked best for you on radar-less maps, such as Louman's Mystic Valley?

Do you always move forward, turn around often, or do you like to camp?
What flags do you find most useful?
GUI settings?
etc..

I searched for "Open Source Games" on Wikipedia. I saw the word "free" next to "BZFlag" and clicked on it. I think I was hoping for something like the 3D wireframe Tank game found on old Macs.

TangenT, was that called Spectre? I only remember tanks on a green and black grid.

I think it is too pointy to be at pillbox anyway. I didn't use wings to get up there, and yes it was a public server Constitution ;) And the answer is...... <drumroll> Rogue Wars Grid by ahs3 though it could be a number of his servers since they all feature the tall pointy pyramids. btw, he is looki...

ha! very funny Slayer...

I'll give you a hint, that point is at the most central and highest point of the map.

I've got a list of 4-5 keyboard players that I consider good(not including myself of course ;). Most play at Louman's Lasermania, I'm sure we'd agree to meet a team of mousers there.

I agree with Baron on one point, we should separate preferences from facts. Yes the mouse has thousands of variations from slow to fast, but I don't need that many. If I want to jump onto a box at close range i hit 'q' -spacebar-'q' (and add a little spin if I want to) as quickly and accurately as a...

Brilliant!

Thanks guys. You followed my train of thought. I think I left out "zoneflag" and put "flag" instead. Either that or else I left out the * on the flag type.

I'll see you at "Sniper Country, CTF by Tedius" on a server near you...

CTF Flag zones

In my map I have a barrier between the teams, making it impossible for tanks to cross to their opponents side. My original intent was to make it CTF, however there seems to be no easy way to make the team flags spawn anywhere other than on the team base. Does anyone want to help me out with a plugin...

Different styles, different techniques... Perhaps a more useful question would be how you would play differently against a keyboard player vs a mouse player. I tend to think a keyboard player is better off in long range situations whereas mouse players would rather jump and dance around like a balle...

When I first posted here I misunderstood what using the mouse meant. What I do is I use both the mouse and the keyboard: Maybe I was unclear. I use the keyboard for driving and everything. I guess you can access the binoculars as easily either way. However, using the keyboard allows you to play fro...

I rely on it often, for long-range sniping, jumping up onto platforms, and falling off platforms onto the right place. I use the q key for it and it works wonderfully. The problem is when I accidently press it and not realize it. I'd say if you wanted to make a change, make it show on my screen when...

/me is a devoted keyboard player. For a while I had an inferiority complex thinking that only the mouse was for serious players, and I usually work with it a little when I'm in Ducati-like servers. However, there are servers in which I think keyboard play is indispensable... those that require binoc...
