BZFlag Plugin Template

This is a basic outline template for developing BZFlag plugins. I often find it tedious to type the same starting things over and over, so here are the basics, a little more than what the SAMPLE_PLUGIN provides, and a few comments that have some starter code for various things. I found it annoying t...

Re: absence of a US 1vs1 server

Does anyone have any information why ahs3's 1vs1 servers have gone down? They were a great addition to the 1vs1 server arsenal.

Re: Turret map.

Would someone who was collecting these maps to keep an archive for their own personal use then be "legal"? In a sense, a lot of maps would be considered useless without all their fancy settings, but someday when someone wishes for it to be recreated, it is that much easier to make happen. Sure; flag...

Re: Turret map.

What about maps hosted on their own servers without open source licenses? I don't know the exact technical details about it, but as far as I know you can go on any map and save that world locally. Since this is allowed, it can be used without problems. As far as distribution goes, I think that itse...

Lasers can be dodged using some common sense. See where they are aiming, if they're not aiming at you, shoot and pray. If they face you, jump, hopefully onto a block. Sometimes lag can help you survive and get an extra shot in. Guided Missiles can be avoided by facing perpendicular to the shooting d...

Re: Need some Help over here.

Because tanks are required to spawn on surfaces, therefore you cannot force them to spawn in the air. If you set a spawn zone in mid air, it will look from there and then go down until it find a surface within that zone to spawn the tank on. Forced airspawn only occurs when there is no safe surfaces...

As a recommendation, and I don't want this to become too complex, is hand out flags once they are in tank versus tank mode and messages will pop up explaining how it can be used. Flags will alternate randomly to allow players to learn the various flags too. I think adding this to the training map wi...
