This would be interesting, but think about it from the players' point of view. Would you really want to just sit around and wait for everyone else to die (which could take quite a long time if there are very experienced players there)? Probably not. So this would most likely not be as good for a pub...

Re: Missile Wars 2

I have been playing Missile Wars 2 a lot and am enjoying it for the most part, but have noticed an error in the map. When jumping into the red base from the "left" as the red base looks out you can get "caught" on aparently nothing and fall straight out of the sky instead of continuing on the traje...

There already is a shot-path implementation for shots. It would require for flags to be modeled using a flag-path implementation, implying that a flying flag actually is a special kind of shot. This could in an even further away future lead to an implementation where flags can be fired by the tank ...

missile wars = wings nightmare it is pretty much useless as gm is so strong it take the winger out all the time. UNLESS AGAINST GENOERS and wings would be a good tactic. always try to land on a higher ground than previously if you need to recharge your wing "flaps", otherwise it's just like multipl...

Hmmm... this would be neat as a plugin, but I doubt it's possible. I don't think the flags as they are flying through the air count as objects, just more of a graphical representation of the flag getting from one place to another.

I really would not be worrying about your skill. It took an insanely long time before I got even close to the positives. Just try to watch players at the top of the list and copy what they're doing. Also, if you see a server up that says "public hix", go play there. You probably won't do so good as ...

Private server + tons of bots + huge SR radius + instantaneous respawn. Equally easy but 100* cheaper than my first post.

Very very good! Only one suggestion: most of the fighting is done outside, where there is just open space, so it would be nice to put more stuff out there, or find some way of making the actual cathedral the main stage for fighting.

Server list details

I have always wondered this (although there is probably an obvious answer I just overlooked...): In the serverlist, the names of different servers have different colors. I have seen various shades of yellow, red, green, and purple. What do these mean? I originally thought it might have something to ...

Don't use Genocide on a Rogue if you are Rogue or you'll die and the server will tell you : "Be more careful with genocide!" This is not necessarily true. In places with rogueGenocide, when you kill a rogue and you are rogue, you will die along with the other rogues, so you will lose 1 point but ga...

Welcome David UK! 1) I am pretty sure it is pronounced "bee zee flag." It is an acronym for "Battle Zone capture the Flag," so you would just say the letters. 2) This could have been a cheater, but I am pretty sure that is was just a physics driver (physics in Bzflag is when you add a property to an...

Yes, I have heard that lots of people use TeamSpeak for Bzflag. I don't think there is one general channel for Bz, as it is used mostly for real teams in the leagues, and they have their own channels.

a.) Many many people have suggested this before. Search before you make a suggestion to see if it has already been suggested.

b.) This is coming out in 3.0. Be patient.
