Um...I did read it. The images would be on the image submission system, so they couldn't be inappropriate. There could even be a section in it for "map thumbnails" and then the maintainers of the sub. sys. would know not to just allow textures there. Therefore, as I said, the only problem would be i...
I was thinking that the thumbnail could be on the ISS (not the space station) and could be made by the map maker, an admin, or the server owner. It would be chosen with -thumbnail <uri of image>.
I think that it would be a cool feature for BZFlag to have a map thumbnail image when you selected a map from the list server. It would work like this: Join Game > Find Server > [select server]. There would then be a small image (200x200 or 300x300) as a preview of the map or whatever the server own...
This could be fun in a map there you need to follow directions "There's a hidden hole in this wall. Find it to proceed", "Look for the platform shaped like a head and stand in the left eye" :-) This could be done with a plugin and normal text. That would also be better idea for someone that doesn't...
I think the sounds would be downloaded before gameplay starts on the server, like texture downloading. The image submission system could be modified to be more of a "Data Submission System" and still have the old URL point to the new one for backwards-compatability. Sound cache would go in your .bzf...
Um, so it prevents you from shooting, but it also prevents you from being killed? Sounds like nobody would want that on an FFA, and on a CTF it would be way too powerful. Seems like it would be impossible to kill someone with this flag, which is bad. Also, the no jumping thing just adds complication...

Well, I see several possible issues. Your BZFlag version is old. The latest for Linux is 2.0.12. Your Ubuntu version is old. The latest is 9.04. Your kernel is old. The latest version is 22.214.171.124. Your KDE version is old. The latest version is 4.2.2. Maybe none of those is the problem, but the old k...

Yes, I agree to remove the version number. After all, some of us use 2.0.12, some use 2.0.10, and I've even seen some that use 2.0.2 (this is no coincidence, that's so they can have fullscreen radar and no HUD)!
The ratio at which a poll is accepted by the server is set in the configuration file. The default setting is .5, but it can be set to more or less by the server owner. It changes for all poll types, not just one. It would require several changes to BZFS to make each poll type have separate lengths.
It stops shots from going through the teleporter, and instead they just ricochet off? Amazing! This can be sorta half-done now with drivethrough and shootthrough boxes in front of the teleporters, though.
I'm not sure I understand... do you mean that one could change server variables to make mesh faces passable by tanks or shots? That would be pretty cool.trepan wrote:I've since added tank flag and shot flag discrimination. As well,
you can now block tank and shot passage by using BZDB variables.

I noticed that BZFlag 2.0.12 still has the menu header image that says "2.0.10". I modified it in the gimp to say the correct version number. If you have 2.0.12, please enjoy this more correct image!
It seems to me that 90% of the time someone chats, it is not in complete, well-formed sentences with all words spelled correctly. Of that 90%, 99% is done that way on purpose. There is no reason for spell checking IMO.

I was just playing on Missile War 2.3, and I discovered that flags can be grabbed through thin walls. Some players think it's a cheat, but others don't. Please tell me what you think of this (tactic/cheat).
