Very nice, I like the idea of castle warfare with castle warfare with forts so close together. However, the areas to the sides of the castles are kind of open.

Sparky1.... No offence but this sounds more like showing off your knowledge then an actual suggestion for a flag :wink: .

If you have a good map, why not put it under Map Releases and see if people like it? If its good, maybe somebody will host it for you. They might give you admin, they might not. It depends on how trustworthy they think you are.

*Once again* (no offence whatsoever):

a) Most likely too hard to code into the game.

b) Would make the game too complicated.

I think a 2v2 tournament map would be very interesting. I would certainly join.

After getting around to play a bit on the new missile war (finally), I've decided to revise my definition. Camping with laser is the worst. It requires absolutely no skill whatsoever except fast reflexes and hand-eye coordination. We have other games (and aspects of BZflag) for that. It's also just ...

Even without textures, that map looks great. :D

It looks a lot like Bloodbath (with the ramps and stuff), did you get the idea from that?

Units? Could you clarify on that please?

If you mean an actual feature in the game then probably no, It would b...

I agree with OPTIMUSprime at the top of the page: It really depends on weather you are camping or sniping. Sniping requires skill, camping does not. They're hard to define, but generally I'd say sniping is shooting from afar (or maybe not) or in a hard to reach place, with ST or GM or L or something...

Just a tip: radar-free maps (like Mystic Valley) are fun, but as a beginner you should make sure that you don't get used to relying only on your main screen (aka "out the window"). Using radar is a VERY important skill, and I know plenty of people (most of them very very good) who use only the radar...

The mousebox is the big square in the middle of the screen. If you use the mouse to steer, your speed and direction are based on the distance from the center of the box and relative position of the mouse from the center of the box, respectively. Having a larger mousebox gives you a larger "resolutio...

Welcome Beenz, sorry to find your first experience of the BzFlag community hostile. Trust me, we're not all like that.

About the different classes of tanks: Another example of making the game too complicated. Most people play bzflag (and not Halo or something) because of its beautiful simplicity. Tank classes would disrupt that. (A buddy list would be cool though :D ) P.S. That clip is just a Flash (probably) animat...

Tank, he's right. Having moving turrets makes the game too complex with extra keys and animations needed. Also, it takes away important aspects of the game, mainly using ricochet effectively. P.S. MANY people have discussed this before and it has officially been NO'ed, maybe it would have been a goo...

I'm best at staying alive to defeat large groups of enemies single-handed, and very quickly aiming and firing with laser to hit somebody before they hit me (like a quick draw :wink: ). Also I'm good at dodging and driving gms, genoing, and i'm ok with ST.
