the strafe/touring box

I have this idea that I experimented with. It kinda works, but has intermittent problems. Basically, I made a mesh box with the ends open and a teleport at each end. The floor of the box has a linear physics driver that moves you toward the teleport at the far end of the box. The mesh on the outside...

horizontal teleports and other tricks

I too have been interested in this idea, however as you have discovered, it isn't available yet. However...I have some thoughts on a workaround, it's kinda clunky: Basically, build a deep box with a teleport inside it. there is no way out of the box, except to go through the teleport. Now, put anoth...

Map making ethics

Ummmm...silly question. With the ability to "save" a map you are playing on, is it considered rude to "borrow" somebody else's map objects/techniques for one's own map? Or is it a given that if you put up a map, you are essentially releasing your creation into the public domain?

Thank you as well

I shall have to take a look into doing this. I run a "bootleg" server on the LAN at work. The computers are all Windows XP, but I load up a Knoppix3.8 disk in console mode on an unused computer, put bzfs and my maps into the Knoppix ramdisk from a USB key, then run the Knoppix sshstart script. I sta...

Thank you

I did some fiddling around at work and finally understood what you had done. Thank you for your reply, it was most helpful. I do have one other question, though. From your code example, you can specify a face with FOUR vertices? I tried it earlier, but got some wierd effects. However, it took me a b...

Tricky jump-through floors

The "Tower" map objects by LouMan allow you to jump up through the underside of a floor and land on the upper side. How is this done? I removed the "drivethrough" tags and the ability to do this went away. Is this something that can only be done with pure meshes? If you use drivethrough with a meshb...

My server

Alas, my server sits behind a firewall, which is probably a good thing, since if I had people coming in from outside to visit, it might attract some unwanted attention. Right now there are only three players, including me. I have asked others, but so far, nobody has shown up. The server itself may b...

next iteration

I haven't messed with setting the flag situation much, just sort of left it standard. I think what I am going to do is set up a series of zones in the very center. If you want a good flag, ya gotta go there and deal with the nastyness. By the way, this is my first map attempt. Hopefully it is not to...

MegaDrome: Blood Arena

I still got lots of stuph to do to it. I know my code is probably pretty ugly, since I sort of do stuff as it occurs to me going by what I see in my head. I just got done fiddling with the teleporters, and haven't tested them, so they may not be working correctly. The inside of the four at the top o...

teleporters

I would like to see "flat" teleporters that could be driven over rather than through. I also think it would be cool to be able to hide teleporters. Another possibility would be a flag that allows the bearer to change the way teleporters link simply by passing through those he wishes to link together...

up to date list of map commands

I am working on my first map but all I know about are the basic box, pyramid, teleporter items, how/where do I find a comprehensive list of newer items/commands, etc?
