I'm not sure if it's considered cheating, but a tactic I like is to hunt everyone, using the 7 key, on non-radar maps. Hunting can also be helpful to know where specific players are (like I hunt Ratfink when he plays to know where he is). Also you can hit F8 to change view modes in observer (i.e. sw...

Oh ok I get it now. Thanks for asking piet! I've been wondering the same thing for ages now because Ratfink told me it's based on your post number, and my friend has made several hundred posts without a rank change.

Ratfink vs. Amoeba! CTF

This a new map I mostly designed, with Ratfink's help, on grid paper. Ratfink proceeded to code it and just finished today. Some features are: Super Bullet boxes (hollow boxes with SB flags inside) A hovering Genocide platform with death boxes below Guided Missile sniping Partially enclosed bases He...

Drummaster01 has a very funny one. Did you make it, or get it from somewhere else? I also like Blizzard's.

My favorites is "A Distraction". Makes me grin every time I see him! Another one I like that is a bit Southpark-ish is "diarrhea". He hangs around at MoFo... I guess that sort of explains the intestinal reference....

I did NOT MAKE the tanks! I BOUGHT them at a fireworks store. The firecrackers are BUILT IN. However it would be satisfying to cram some more in and see what happens! He he, KAPOW!

I haven't set them off because I live in an area generally lacking in concrete and asphalt... they go crazy and it's no fun on a board. I'll send pictures next time I light one.

A note on the maze idea: usually interesting, unusual, and complex maps are the less popular ones. So you probably won't have it on the first few pages most of the time. However, it's a cool idea and if you don't care about popularity, I say go for it!

Mini-tank fireworks!

Got these before I knew about BZFlag and found them again on the Fourth of July. They roll on the ground and shoot off little firecrackers if I remember right. Anyway, being bored, I set up a BZFireworks scene. Please enjoy! Oh, and sorry about the quality of the photos, I was in a hurry when I took...

Team score in Free For All

I was just wondering... why is there team score in Free For Alls? I can't seem to figure out how you get team score on an FFA for myself, so can someone who knows please explain?
Thanks,

I think the launching is random, or I have never figured it out either. You can always just go along the side wall and jump in through the opening on the SB tower too.

Red (coincidently my favorite color). I also like Rogue, because it's black and makes for great camo sometimes.

I hardly EVER get Geno, and when I do, I usually get killed 3 seconds later. So maybe once every three months if I'm lucky. One trick a friend told me (nasty one, probably ban-inducing) is join a map with Rogue Genocide as a Rogue, get a Geno flag and shoot yourself. It may be true about the ban-thi...

Mine, naturally. I find it appropriate for the subject of the game. I drew it myself, and I use one with a transparent background as my BZFlag icon. I like it better than the original one that came with the game. Transparency's ALL messed up in that one. tonywolfe212 uses the ball-throwing-dude as h...

I always seem to make the cakes in my family. I WANTED to made a tank-shaped one for my brother on his birthday, but he wanted a giant cookie instead of a cake, so my plans sorta fell through. Heh, guess I'm not as creative as I thought! Anyway, nice job!
