Re: my devotion to BZFlags

Good thing you changed the icon colors, it could have gotten confusing with all your icons looking the same!

Re: "Booster" flag/zones.

I think that could be pretty fun, but maybe a bit hard to implement. Maybe possible with a plugin in 3.0.

Re: Idea: Hunt the General

Here's an idea: you could have the general change after 5 minutes (with prior warning for the future general so he can get to safety). That way, he wouldn't get too bored with sitting around, because if he lives long enough he gets to start playing again.

Re: bzadmin idea

I think the patch would be fine, because if you could do something like this:

Code: Select all

bzadmin --email="This is a custom email string"
In the game, your email string would actually be this:

Code: Select all

(bzadmin | This is a custom email string)
That way, everyone would be happy.

Re: special bullets

I believe that would be impossible, at least in BZFlag 2.0.X, because shots are tracked by the client and not the server. In 3.0 it might be possible with a plugin.

That idea for a map could be done by making a very large shock wave world weapon (though it might not look as nice).

New server variables for controlling wind

I think it would be an interesting addition to BZFlag to have wind. Wind would blow tanks and/or shots gently in one general direction, similar to wind in real life. All the aspects of wind could be controlled by server variables, described below. _windDirection [0-360] This variable controls the di...

Thanks for the offer, but I have a nice HTML/CSS template I made myself already. However, it doesn't work right on Firefox, so I need to fix that somehow.

Yeah, I understand what you mean, and it would be interesting. It isn't quite hide and seek, but still sounds pretty fun. You're right about letting hiders shoot, as long as there is a whole team of seekers. Of course, it's not very far off from HTF. I suppose it could also be accomplished by having...

All the players that are "Hiders" will spawn on the "Base". The hiders are given a certain time to hide somewhere in th...
