But you can drop down into a pipe, and have a physics object that throws you into a teleporter. Then in the exit pipe, you land on a bouncy physics.

Actually, nearly all the components of the map are free to host by anyone, as long as they do not claim to be BZFX, or affiliated in any way (unless they really are, of course). We had a problem with this, and that's why A Meteorite is so overprotective :wink:

Maybe what would be better for detecting teamkills would be to watch for, say, 3 teamkills in a row, rather than a percentage. Very very rarely will a person accidentally teamkill many times in a row. If they are doing it accidentally, they still deserve to be banned :twisted:

Yes, if your graphics aren't hardware accelerated, you can get _really_ laggy. I'm on a 5Mb/s connection, but when I use my old old computer to play BZFLag (10 FPS, 320x240, every option turned down as low as you can go) my lag is often in excess of 500ms.

No. There is a finite number of each flag on any particular BZFlag server. Flags are never created or destroyed, just moved. You've just discovered a good way to get the flag you want ;) If the flags are mixed around fairly randomly and there are enough flags on the map, it should be fairly hard to ...

That is a really odd bug, that has caused me huge headaches on BoxyWar.

This is a great idea. I like it that it dosen't require you to vote, but makes it extra easy. Often on large servers the poll scrolls up so that you can't finish it in time. Also, many players DO want to vote, but don't know what to do. Also, /vote is a rather long thing to type when you are in the ...

BoxyWar on BZFX is not a good example because the TK ratio is not set up properly.
