Assuming your proper ports are open, can you connect to your server at 65.40.228.216 port 5154 ? And while I'm not an expert on firewalls, do you have it so that BZFS has unblocked access to the interweb?

Or even better, make a hole where all the bots can spawn, and then SW them to death.

Quite a lot going on here. I'm personally not a huge fan of world weapons, and some of them are quite useless (such as the bullets shooting out of the big tanks) which I would remove. I'll have to see how it holds up in gameplay.

When a tank intersects the plane, the probability of that tank being hit by the bullet is calculated by a double integral, where the tank's cross section is the boundary. Then a random number generator determines if that tank is shot or not shot, and the chances of either way is determined by the t...

The problem with this is that once you get hit, you're pretty much stuck. You could still fire, but unless you could turn, that would be pretty much worthless. Even with splash damage, so many flags that involve splash damage have been rejected already, so why would this be any different? (Concept-w...

If you're talking about not exploding when you get shot, the SH flag does the job. Perhaps you could explain it a bit more clearly?

If what you're talking about is a new flag, maybe you'll want to post it in the Flag Ideas wiki page.

The map's pretty good. From what I've played, seems quite frustrating to get to other bases, but I'll have to play it with others to see how it holds up.

And how is promoting death good? ;-)

As far as I know, Ducati is played on a random map. It's kinda hard to plagiarize something that is random.

There actually WAS a map that looked like the original Battlezone out on the list server at one time, but I'm not sure if it's still up.

The map is very interesting, and for a first map I must say it is quite impressive (well, you managed to take advantage of many of the rarely-used features of world creation).

Actually, use Wordpad. It handles files with Unix line-endings better.
(In other words, if you open it up with Notepad and see a big monolithic square-delimited mess, use Wordpad)

You could probably be able to run BZ on it, provided you have the correct libs and drivers to get it compiled. The real question is whether it would run "well." From what I know, bare-bones systems do not run 3D games well at all, and BZFlag is no exception.

Are you placing the map (.bzw) files in your My BZFlag Files/worlds directory? If you do it that way, you should be able to select your map.

However, this only works at the LAN scope. If you are interesting in hosting a map publicly, you should read this page on creating a server.
