Re: Game mode suggestion: Humans vs Zombies

Can bots play this? if so, please allow them on the server. It's almost impossible to start playing. Unless there are three players u can do nothing and idle kick threatening you. It's not easy too have two people on the server and three is just a fantasy.

Re: Ninja Castle (Map project Sig and I are planning)

Many ctf maps are about avoiding the enemy rather than confronting them. Still there should be a real need to avoid enemies, and if they are miles apart it is just like there is no enemies at all. Personally, the only thing I enjoy on duc style maps is dodging as long as possible, without shooting....

Re: Simple Question - how to start the game?

Did you try to run it from the directory where the bin file is? Just run it from the directory where you have installed the game (in the bin folder). Otherwise you have to add this directory to your $PATH.

look google to see how to add to PATH

Re: Ninja Castle (Map project Sig and I are planning)

I've understood some things recently. The map should have some action. To have real play players should be able to fight in seconds (~4?) after the spawn (and after getting prepared). You want to make large map with lots of stealth. But larger map takes more time for players to come in contact and f...

Re: SteamRoller Race (Obstacle Course)

rather small and simple obstacle. The key is to get to SR through OO field. If you won't drop OO you'll die.

BTW I wonder weather someone made SkyRoads clone for bzflag.

Re: Humpty Dumpty Capture The Flag!

Thank you, ahs3. I've just found serious bug with flag passing, I've fixed it. I don't get what is the team bug you were talking about, the map has " -mp 0,12,0,12,0,10" in options and colors for groups are 1 and 3. I've also cutted GM range. The main drawback so far is that the map has no action fo...

Re: Battle Combat Strategy

Just an idea, maybe it will help someday. For me it is too difficult to determine where the north on the map, it can take me ~3 second to find that thin "N" on the radar. So to make people easier to navigate you can write "north", "west", "south", "east" with map objects outside the playing area. Th...

Re: How to get texutres into a map ( Image Uploads )

so if one modifies them the result should be licensed as LGPL?

Anyway, who should be marked as author for such images? Especially if the modification of standard texture was rather trivial.

Re: sealed while others are not on "Amazing Maze 3.2 by rmapple"

another tip --- in case of boxes using meshboxes also solves the problem (well, at least adding "sides matref" to box removes sealed issue on that box).

2D world render and 2D bz editor.

Is there a way to make a map of the world, i.e. 2D plan? Maybe blender/wings3D support it, if so how do I do that? Are there any map editors that allow you to design map in 2D, so the editor will look something like inkscape. Most of the maps are mostly 2D or have 2-3 2D levels so I think for many o...

Today I've come to the soccer server and after ~10 minutes it was crowded!

mrapple, there are invisible planes in the hights (for green player?). Could you please make them noradar?

by the way, now I see the map was made a bit roughly, but it's cute.

This is my contribution. It has no floor, it requires 100x800 floor. All map is in one group (YroGroup), except 1 material, 1 physics and 2 zones. Hope it will work as designed.

Re: sealed while others are not on "Amazing Maze 3.2 by rmapple"

I'm playing around with bzw and I often have this bug while testing map under construction (my machine is lin32). If the tank is sealed on a box, changing box height solves the problem. Adjusting the height by +/- 0.0001 units is enough. Mrapple, you could adjust the height of that rail, maybe it wi...

Re: BZSoccer and BZHockey

Are they still need green dummy player? If so --- that's the only their problem, you can't just go and play, unlike other maps. I think the server should provide that player automatically.

or maybe it's possible to join with bot of specific color? (but still it's not very friendly for newbies).

Re: CTF with 1 Flag

sure you can host it. I I've just downloaded some random duc map from one of the servers and slightly changed it so it's in public domain anyway. Btw, maybe it worth making spikes a bit wider, reduce and the number of gaps between them to have tinyFactor 0.9.
