I like "info" it gives a better idea of what it's used for than "tag".

Or something more simpler, use -setforce "Copyright (c) BinarySpike 2007, All rights reserved" Then if someone "/saveworld" then the -setforce would turn into a set and screw their loading up if they tried to host it.

Currently, that is not even remotely possible with a plug-in. 2.1's plan is to be able to modify a shot's state: direction, velocity, etc (I heard it being discussed in #bzflag, and it may already be implemented with Jeff's recent overhauls?). So, yeah, it could be done in theory... map a list of a...

This will be possible in 2.1.x but is not currently possible.


As far as I've heard, ID'ing would be next to impossible (unless it was possible for plugins to change text on the scoreboard)

Flag idea's, the do's and the do not's

With the upcoming protocol break (2.1.x) flags are something that can be added. Sadly many people including myself want flags that are either to complicated, powerful or easy to cheat with. So I wanted to put some points up and hopefully help people. 1. Flags should not be to powerful, Genocide is a...

I don't like the duel flag idea.

But having different "zoned" map sounds great!

Actually you could do this now... Just make two area's of a map and when users go through tele they goto the other portion. Just texture one portion with a purple grass ground.

It's a good idea, especially for CTF. Just like Low Gravity flag, it has flaws. Every flag has a flaw. Like LG is useless on a no-jumping map, unless the map is tailored for LG and no jumping.
