No.

But you can do other things by applying physics to objects, such as sliding, no jumping, or forcing a tank to jump.

Quite simply, a plugin can not do this alone. Something like this would require a new record format with BZFS mods and more plugin API functionality.

It's a good idea nonetheless.

I mean that if you lock on to one person, and shoot two GMs, only the first one will track the player. You need to lock on again
GM locks expire when all your current locked shots expire (either by expire time, or by hitting an object).

It is possible that this is not the problem, as we are stabbing in the air without more info.

No plugin currently exists to do that. wwzones could be modified, though, so that it only fires when no players are in that zone instead of the reverse. I'm not entirely sure why you would want to do this, though, since world weapons were designed to kill tanks and firing them pointlessly just creat...

Of course BZFlag will allow you to use other callsigns. But BZFlag will only identify you if you use "Megatron" - that is because it is just like logging in here.

Enigma While I like your idea, I hope you are aware you can do this same thing with BZW code, except via world weapons (usually SW) - not just killing them. This is done with the trigger oncap option of the weapon object. Though, this would be convenient for those who do not want to set-up SW (or o...

A very complex plug-in can achieve a turrent. If tank is in a certain range of coordinates, it could fire world weapons. Though, not very practical.

I, too, have a D-Link and have experienced the not responding problem. At one point, I never became NR, and then it started back up again. I don't know what changed in my D-Link router, but it has made me believe there is a reason that causes it, and is fixable.

Either that, or I'm losing my mind. ;)
